I started out theming back on my S2 and created what is now called "Missing Link"
As any themer/developer knows, these things take test, after test, after test, to get things working and looking properly !!!
The problem is, every time things get left behind and garbage files build up until the ROM isn't running just how I like.
I USED to have to wipe everything and flash the Base ROM, then flash seperate file after file, or mods and theme options to get it back to where i wanted it and this is where O.Z.O.P. is born!!!
My idea for this project is to have One Zip file in One Place with EVERYTHING you could want or need to build a new and different ROM when you feel the need for change. So this will DEFINITELY be W.I.P. and grow with more and more to come, and go if need be!!
So Here is a run down of the options given to you during the Aroma Installation
*Backup/Restore your current settings, accounts, Bluetooth/WiFi pairings, text messages and setting with call logs, very convenient when you are a pure flashaholic like myself.
There is definitely a right way and wrong way to apply your restoration.
Don't worry that I've testing it thousands of times literally.
click for instructions on Backup/Restore Script
follow these to reduce problems
1) In recovery run the "Backup Script"
2) Flash the ROM (of your choice)
3) in the same session run "Restore Script" and any other mods you want. This will get your account sign in finished
4) let the phone boot up and finish the "Set up Wizard"
5) now boot to recovery and run the "Restore Script" and this will finish restoring your settings options and text messages.
if you have "force close of android.process.acore" or any other force close issue
***THE FIX EVER TIME IS GET TO RECOVERY AND FIX PERMISSIONS!!! *** Simple as that.
choose cache and dalvik cache wipe or go for the Full Wipe
