Default [ROM] Darkforest ROM 3.0.5 UPDATE | GSM 2.3.4/.62 | CDMA 2.3.3/.145 [WIP]

Darkforest ROM 3.1.0

Turn your R800i into an Xperia S with Darkforest ROM 3.1.0 GSM

Version 3.1.0 is GSM only and if you install on an R800x you will lose all phone functionality.

Download 3.1.0: http://icxperia.com/keiran/dfr3/DFRGSM3.1.0.zip or via DFR OTA

3.1.0 Changelog:
Code:
Select Code
Darkforest ROM 3.1.0 Changelog

- Using 4.0.2.A.0.64 base
- Xperia S themed by FlamEmo - framework-res.apk, SemcGenericUxpRes.apk, SemcSettings.apk
- Disabled ALS due to themed Settings app not showing disable auto brigtness option
- Added Xperia S Applications:
   Alarms
   Browser
   Calculator
   Calendar
   Clock
   Contacts
   Email
   Gallery
   Games & apps (facebook)
   Messaging
   Music & videos (facebook)
   Music Player
   Phone
   Settings
   Setup Guide (needs resizing still)
   Timescape
   Track ID
   Xperia S Live Wallpapers
   Xperia S Themes (work like existing themes)
   Xperia S Widgets
   Xperia S Home
   - Left all stock widgets there (eg. old timescape) incase people still like to use them.
- Added Xperia ICS Beta Boot Animation
- Left Update center for people on locked b
- Added support for New Darkforest OTA application with real updating
- Added Darkforest Tweak app for tweaking your device on the go
- Updated to latest AROMA installer, using ICS theme in installer
- Removed GSM Mods: Custom Home and Custom Theme, I don't think they are needed as you can apply them yourself easily, this saves downloading something you don't want.
Version 3.1.0 is in testing, and is using Xperia S applications, some issues are:
Code:
Select Code
Setup Wizard needs either replacing or resizing
Timescape needs resizing, although I think it looks fine
There is a bug in the smart dialer, the * button, a bit of it doesn't show, this doesn't affect functionality.
If you like my work and you would like to help me save towards a university fund, please donate here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/dona....php?u=4344506

If you are a CDMA user, due to old framework, some of the mods I have applied to the GSM version will not work on the CDMA version. If anyone manages to get any of the Xperia S applications running on the CDMA ROM, please tell me which ones, as I don't have a device for myself.
Download for CDMA & GSM 3.0.5: http://darkforestgroup.com/forum/ind...c,11307.0.html

Download for 3.1.0 coming soon

The reason I do all this is because we are a small community and Sony Ericsson don't attract big developers such as LeeDrOiD and mike1986, so its easier to get to learn about people here. In the other sections I only have a few friends, here I have many

Plus, developing for the R800x is cool because there is nothing better than one upping Verizon lol

Thanks,
Going to try to push for an early beta tomorrow for CDMA.
Also going to include options on the aroma Rom installer such as applying themes
I already have it set up for GSM, and the script is set up for CDMA, I just need to merge some CDMA files

CDMA roms are that much different? Only difference is radio right? I don't get why they have to make it so difficult. Good luck hope you cdma guys get to join the fun. Looking forward to dfr3 thanks

Keiran, i have to say, from a lurker's point of view, you are awesome!
When i first saw the name of the thread i was like "Is he insane? Does he have the time?"
But i'm glad to know that you're not, and you're doing it for both us GSM and CDMA.

Kudos!

Just thought I would mention that the only difference between the GSM and CDMA seems to be a few libs and a few build.prop edits

WOO! Thanks meter 500! Thanks!

Okay, so maybe it isn't as simple as I thought. But I am still working on it, and should have something done by today.
Even if I can't get the 2.3.4 ported to the R800x, I can do something else, but thats only if, I probably will be able to do something.
Can someone get me an R800x /system dump?
