I have been sharing my CM7/CM9/CM10/CM10.1 builds for galaxy s for some time in several threada, which culminated in the MackayROM. I continue now with JB4.2 for i9100, based on this ROM for galaxy s/optimus black. MackayROM is based on CyanogenMod sources, with several performance enhancements.

I have been building for my brother (who owns an i9100) already for half a year, but never took the time to start an XDA thread. This ROM is thus tested by my brother. This also means that solving problems is not that easy for me.

About Cyanogen: CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.2 (JellyBean), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

If you run into errors, I may not be able to solve it!

If you know a solution to a problem, either upload it yourself to Gerrit Code Review or contact me through pm.


The ROM is based on CM10.1 with the following changes:
-Mackay kernel
-Set of cherries picked from gerrit (differing by the day)
-Some handmade patches I did myself to the source code

Feature request are OK, but remember:
1. I try to stay close to stock
2. I will not include additional apps, unless they can be build from source
3. The time I spend on features depends on how much I like them myself

Changelog of 2.11.1 compared to previous release (2.11.0):
-Many upstream code improvements (codebase 1-Jun-2013)
-Many upstream kernel updates

FAQ
Q. Process x (e.g. mediaserver/phone) is eating 50+% of my battery, what should I do?
A. Go to settings>apps>all and find the app which is causing the battery drain. Then delete app data and reboot phone. If it does not help, you can combine this step with clearing dalvik cache.

Q. I have problems with Play Store FC
A. Please install a recent gapps package (see e.g. http://goo.im/gapps)

You are right. But it doesn't harm anything as well
