Hi friends,

Welcome to HaloGen for i9500.
This ROM is a neat and clean CM10.2 with HALO feature from the ParanoidAndroid.

First I would like to thank the people who made this possible:
1) @intervigil and CM team for porting CM10.2 on i9500. Nothing was fated for this device without them.
2) ParanoidAndroid for making the fantastic HALO feature, proving once again that Android has been always about innovation of exciting user friendly features.
3) @Grarak and @doga.ozkaraca for constantly clearing my doubts whenever I had regarding anything.
4) @AndreiLux for his unbeatable Perseus kernel.
5) Samsung, who knows how to make good devices, but being dumbasses for not releasing sources.
6) Many thanks to the works of Cristiano Matos (https://github.com/cristianomatos). All the latest changes are totally derived from his work.
7) Special thanks to @hamdogg for a youtube review and an amazing logo image. Please subscribe his channel as a token of appreciation.


HaloGen
This was basically a personal project for me to learn Android OS development. I was fascinated about the HALO feature and so I began implementing it over the always faithful base of CM.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible if you spoil your device using this. I have tested it on my device and the Known Bugs list is always up to date

Please refer second post for known bugs and changelog.

It's ready for a daily driver. Now I will look into device based stability in device tree.

Yes, but I am not able to track which function is calling that illegal width. I will soon commit it to my github.

i didnt edit framework source codes before but i build an app. . but probably you have styles.xml or dimens.xml file. find that layout name and edit that but i'm not sure . ask that to @Grarak too and i can look your codes when you commit to github

and Keep up the good work. Rom looks cool nice good

I had to do some heavy framework edits here :P. That's why it took 4 days. I will go throught the files once again tomorrow to check the errors. Lets see what @Grarak has to say about it.
Thanks anyways bro

BTW @doga.ozkaraca ... Its been 1 hour with latest intervigil commits. No random reboots. I think that audio commit was the culprit somewhere.

I'll edit the working/not working list right away
I didn't know this about the Advance Reboot .. stupid TouchWiz eroded my brain.
Themes will work in the next build, promise
Thanks for the feedback mate

Whoever has installed, can you tell me if HALO functionality is working fine?
Note: Apart from the SystemUI crash
