Hei, this are some ROMs im putting together. The builds are compiled from AOSP, CM and Evervolv sources.

COS-Bravo-JB

I have been playing around with Jellybean a bit and i figured i trough out a early build, based on Evervolv in most regards.

This build has the gapps included, the apk's and ogg's are optimized bloatware's are gone.

ALPHA BUILDS:

Recommended hboot my JB with 210 MB on System, 5 mb cache, 220ish userdata
(you can use any hboot which has at least 210 mb on system but you might lose a lot of space on the other options be it cause you have a much bigger system partition or cause you have a big cache partion)

Jelly hboot R3 - Download
MD5: f5b912f12e5cd712c5aa8fe8eeaf56ac
(md5 apply's to the .img not the zip)

Alpha:

Alpha #1 - Download
MD5: 25883cf980f045bb64ffa4efad0e8694

Gapps - Download
MD5: 436f2ae91b9a01814bc133c7657c31b6

* This gapps pack will only work on this ROM, also you won't be able to fit another Gapps pack (which has everything like Google Now and google ears) in the 210 MB /system partition, except this. The gapps libs in this pack are in a compressed folder (lzo compression - used a lighter compression since this might lag the system a bit) and the srec/en_US in another compressed folder (XZ compression - this is a much better compression but eats more CPU, hopefully wont be notiable)

A2sdext ?: in the terminal(su first) or adb shell run a2sd install

Changes:

11-Aug-2012
Made it all fit in 210 MB, from 250 , It only includes en_US language/local, Camera can take photos, youtube plays (its hacky still, but is something), removed Gallery2 for now since its linked with the new Camera which we can't use at this point and added the basic 2D Gallery.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TEST BUILDS:

I suggest testers, AKA bored ppl to use my Jelly hboot (250/5/182 Mb partition layout)

Download hboot

MD5: f58a590b17b51c881000938d634cd6c9 (the check applys to the img not the zip)

In any case you need a system partition of at least 250 MB


The Rom:

Test #5
MD5: 8d61bae21398d7a0e3bc417f27c09666
Back to BFQ as default I/O scheduler, added the EV stuff they merged
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Test #4

MD5: 9f7a3e104d37d4a9cec3bda29be5278f
Changes:
a few I/O tweaks(noatime to userdata, non rotational for mtd, noop default mmc/mtd scheduler, mmc readahead 1024, zram/ksm enabled on start, kernel: added FudgeSwap also a minfree_stat read only interface @/sys/module/lowmemorykiller/parameters/minfree_stat (thanks to EzTerry for this tweaks), a few changes to the kernel CGROUPS, enabled NAMESPACES - laptop mode enabled in the ramdisk(suppose to help with battery) & a inital fudge swap value (/sys/module/lowmemorykiller/parameters/fugeswap) looks smooth so far.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Test #3
MD5:ef7ed599b0454771761da803a4c5cde7
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Test #2

MD5: a8ee95b5d1d9a66c2397bc1a8e4ec66e
Fixed GoogleEars, updated Gmail, updated Andreo drivers to the early Jellybean release from Qcom.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Test #1
MD5: 87da8ddb007cb1cb573a357d32f9cc6e

To enable a2sdext (save goes for dalvik to sdext or data to sdext) use adb shell or a terminal : a2sd install

many things do not work, like Camera at all, video playback...HWA works okish.

once more things are fixed i will of course COS it well, as usual, no ETA's though

COS-Bravo-ICS:
This is to considered a BETA Rom for now

git://github.com/roalex/android.git -b ics

Project HOME - BUG tracker

Requirements:
180 MB system partition - Alpharev hboot data++
SDEXT partition, formated as EXT4 (around 1 GB is fine ) for A2sdext

Features:
OS: Android 4.0.4_r2
OpenGL HWA Enabled**
Kernel: Based on drewis's kernel sources
This ROM is ODEXed and still is around 170 MB - which means you don't need a sd-ext unless you have massive needs.
Apps to Sdext, Data to Sdext, Dalvik-cache to Sdext are supported - Settings/Performance/A2sd

**This is still a bit buggy and the Camera Panorma and the Camcorder are still SLOW, still seams ok all in all.

[B]Video recording ALSO works with the Market app Camera/Videocam ilusion

Tips:
FM radio does work with Spirint FM (enable BT before opening the app, select region, audio > QSD8250)

COS-Bravo-Gb :
git://github.com/roalex/android.git -b Cos-Gb

Requirements:
100 MB Hboot needed - Alpharev OxyR2 HBoot
SDEXT if you want apps2sdext (it's not a must)

Features:
Os: Android 2.3.7, heavily based on the current CM tree
Kernel: 2.6.38 customized kernel - Tiamat source tree
Apps2SdExt integrated into the frameworks, from Firerat's|EzTerry github sources
Various optimizations (check my sources on github for specifics)
Bloatware free
Gapps are included

You will find the usual CM 7.2 toys, added KSM support for the settings and kernel has KSM and ZRAM support, as well as squashfs, default scheduler BFQ.

Tips:
To enable Apps2Sdext and/or Data2SdExt visit Settings|Applications|Development.
To set the default installation partition go to Settings|Applications.
To move applications from sd-ext|sdcard|internal Settings|Applications|Manage Applications.
There is no Dalvik2SdExt because .dex will follow the location of the apk, so if you install an application on sd-ext the dex will be on sd-ext, the same applys for internal or sdcard.
Do not use A2sd scripts.

All thanks should go to Firerat, this has been around for more then a year, for some reason people didn't push it on their AOSP ROMs.

Wiah, really nice job! I'm gonna test the ROM when I have time, but could you post the kernel to download it separately? I'd like to test it in MIUI, as Tiamat's one was very fast but had some problems with multitasking.

Im not sure which Lock sound you are speaking of but if you talk about MUTING Camera Shutter and Focus they are, look under Sounds in COS settings.

Sorry for confusing. I mean screen lock sound. There should be a sound when you lock or unlock the screen. I think it missing the lock sound file in the system ui folder
