Hi Guys,

Losing my patient on laggy Samsung Dialer and Contacts, so I decided to replace it with AOSP dialer and contacts. It didn't work out 100%, but it works to some extend

Contacts - so far all working as it should.

Dialer - in call screen doesn't work. It will use Samsung in call screen instead. Well, is good too because I can use call recording feature

Missed called - show in lockscreen but only open to contacts instead of the one who had called.

If you wish to install AOSP Dialer & Contacts, here's how:

1) Samsung mms.apk won't work with AOSP contacts. So you will need to replace the SecMms.apk with AOSP mms.apk. You can do that from here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=36617379

2) Next, download the zip file below. Then navigate to system/app. Find SecContacts.apk and rename it to SecContacts.apk.bak (do not delete)

3) Reboot into recovery and flash the zip file you just downloaded. All contacts will be cleared. So make sure you have backup.

4) Reboot your phone. Navigate to system/app. Find ContactsProvider.apk (not SecContactsProvider.apk) and rename it (do not delete) to ContactsProvider.apk.bak

That's it. If you found any bug, please let me know. Or if you have other method to get AOSP/CM10 Dialer and Contacts to work with Samsung based rom, please share.

Thanks.

Do this at your own risk.

Sadly I wasn't able to get this working..

Also the step where we rename contactsprovider after a initial reboot.. maybe theres some way we can merge contactsprovider similar to the mms method.

Would love to see this working tho !

No errors in particular.. dialer didnt show up in launcher.. Iv added this as a aroma option in my rom, so I havnt followed your instructions exactly right..

Hence why im wondering if we can do a similar method to mms.

EDIT: This has to be possible look at chameleon rom on the SII, his managed to get a whole bunch of AOKP & CM stuff working on stock..

Yeah, hopefully some great developers can help to merge the apks into Samsung framework. In the meantime, this is a workaround.

or you can use Ex Dialer with the ICS theme. No lag, and it's somewhat better than AOSP/CM dialers. It has lots of options to chose from, it's free and has an option to be kept in memory

Yup. Is a good option too if you don't want to mess around with system files
