I'm here to present to you my new rom:
the Clean Blank ROM
This is a SIMPLE rom...
THIS IS NOT MEANT FOR ORD USERS xD
This is meant to be a STABLE rom, to flash and then forgot about it just like a REAL Stock rom!!!
Updates will be present only in case of versions bump and bugfixig
Don't expect nor nightly nor a weekly release, cause ITs NOT MEANT TO BE LIKE THIS!
Lets quickly start with the goal of the rom:
Having a REAL nexus user experience, on the Galaxy S2
This is not simply going to give you an Aosp rom, but a real OEM-Like Package, turning your SII into a brand new GNex just like it is when booted for the first time
So here is what the rom offers:
Update to android 4.1.2 (read changelog http://www.funkyandroid.com/aosp-JRO03R-JZO54K.html )
New 4.1.2 gApps + 4.2 gapps
OEM-like Nexus system Specifically built around Gs2, includes specific
OEM-like rom signaturing (encaching security)
Open source audio
Added OTA updates
full gapps (Gnow working)
USB OTG Mouse and Keyboard support
Encached Media Quality (MP4 -STEREO- video recording (working 1080p))
Fixed Holo background banding
Dock settings (now USB Audio with official base works)
Optimized launcher memory usage
HSPAP:15 support (H+)
FM-Radio support (install it from the OTA App)
Resolved RILJ Wakelock
Thats straight and simple
KNOWN BUGS (and relative workarounds!)
- TV Out Mirroring: not working (and will probably never work) -> You can still see videos from players/youtube/browser, just normal mirroring will not work
- No ProjectButter
THIS ROM IS OPENSOURCE!
If YOU Want to compile your own nightly go to post 3!
Now I just want to explain to you WHY of some choices:
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Lghtweight, Fast, Smooth as silk rom BUT Still with a complete set of GApps (including FaceUnlock)
This is meant for REALLY PURE GE Experience, so NO TOGGLES, NO MODS, NO THEMES (from me, users are free to theme the rom for me ), but with the Suggestion I'll give you, you'll not Miss them...
If really then you want meteo in status, 213123 toggles, central clock and all that things go for CM9/10 and AOKP And simply leave this rom, its NOT meant to be This way xD
ADD-ON AND SUGGESTIONS:
On Market, search for WIDGETSOID:
After a simple setup you'll have this
you can use NOTIFICATION TOGGLES:
Couple of tips for users:
1) For notification and battery percentage, use notification toggle from playstore. Download cyanogenmod icons/original ics icons from within app (stock toggles in the app are big and ugly) and after 5 minutes of configuration you will get this:
2) For bln there's no notification service that runs in background polling for missed calls and msgses by default - unlike CM9. Using BLN control app you can get the service running and hence bln. If you're using a kernel with built in bln support and misc files (like Siyah) do the following to get bln working for missed calls and stock sms.
Download missed call reminder. Check missed calls and unread sms in the app. Under cal reminder settings set LED color to white. Uncheck screen On. Do the same thing for sms reminder settings. Now activate bln through script or extweaks.
If you're using gosms, uncheck "unread sms" in the app and check "Blink LED" in gosms notification settings.
3) Press and hold volume down and power key simultaneously for a screenshot.
you can use BATTERY WIDGET REBORN:
To use it, install SpiritFM, check it on OTA APP or here:
