3/9/14 Build Information
Hey there everyone! It seems like it's been awhile since the last time I got make one of these new build posts, and I have to say it feels good to be able to do it again!
I first have to apologize for my absence both in terms of development and communication in the thread. I'm getting close to the end of my sophomore year in college, and let's just say it has been keeping me extremely busy. I don't mind it, but I just wish it still left more time for me to do Android-related things! Luckily, I had a whole week off to catch up on a lot of things, including Shiny ROM development. So with that, we have a new build ready to go that includes a very minor update to the AOSP base of the ROM as well as some not so minor updates to the telephony stack. What this means is that mobile data and voice performance/reliability may have some big improvements in this build. We didn't get a chance to do a wide-scale test with these changes, and they're only in the master branch of AOSP, but after reviewing the code I'm hopeful that they'll bring improvements for us. That being said, be sure to leave your feedback here on the thread so we know how it's working! If you experience any problems, try to grab a logcat and let us know about them so we can try to get everything straightened out!
So after reviewing the other information and installation instructions below, head over to the download post
to grab the new build!
I also want to take this opportunity to point out that Shiny ROM has a new website! For now, the URL/domain is still http://shinyrom.goofball.org/
to stay consistent. The website has a lot of information about Shiny ROM as well as some future plans. It also lists details for the newest build of Shiny ROM along with download links, etc. I'm hoping that this website serves as a good platform for Shiny ROM to grow as we can now deliver a lot of information without having to worry about it getting buried in the forum and whatnot. So check that site frequently for Shiny ROM news and updates as well as information about new builds! There is also a contact form there for everyone to leave their suggestions, report bugs, etc.
I hope you all like it!
(You can still access all of the Shiny ROM files here
