- Installation for broodROM RC5 -


1. If you have CWM installed: format all partitions. If you don't have CWM installed do a Hard Reset (*2767*3855#) Note: A hard reset also wipes your sdcard, make sure you got it backed up
Note: A format or hard reset is not always needed, you can always try to keep your data folder and flash broodROM RC5, wiping dalvik cache is still needed!
2. Put your phone in download mode (when off hold: vol -, home, power)
3. Start Odin, Choose AriesVE.ops file, check "One Package", choose: "broodROMRC5.tar.md5" > Click Start
4. Wait till the process is complete, now your phone will reboot and show you recovery mode, now choose reboot system now by pressing the menu button
5. Set animations to a few. (settings > display > animations) For the shutdown-style old TV animation and start enjoying your new rom

DISCLAIMER : FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PHONE

broodROM RC4 FAQ

Q: I kinda like Apple, and I don't want an android pissing on an apple as bootlogo
A: Well.. this is only a custom boot logo, you can easily change it by reflashing the SkyHigh v1.4 Kernel

Q: I want to install a system accelerator like Thunderbolt or Adrenaline shot
A: Don't do that! The SkyHigh v1.4 kernel already includes an integrated Thunderbolt, adding more tweaks would simply bootloop your phone

Q: I saw the screenstate_scaling script in /system/etc/init.d, what's up with that?
A: screenstate_scaling is an addition to Thunderbolt, in this script the default awake & sleep governors are set, this script can function as an alternative to CPU Master. You will notice that CPU Master will give you a warning each time you boot your phone since the screenstate_scaling script will interfere with it.

Q: I noticed that you have set the sleep governor to ondemand, why is that?
A: I did that because I've experienced some alarm clock fails on 100Mhz, Of course you can try it out yourself, it might work just fine

Q: I want a better battery life for your rom! How can I achieve that?
A: You can perform the following steps to gain a better battery life: first thing is to lower the CPU Frequency, the default is 1.8GHz, but you can set it to 1.4Ghz (or so) with Antutu CPU Master. The second thing is that you can set the sleep governor to "powersafe" (can be found in screenstate_scaling script) this sets the phone in an even lower state and safes you battery (see the question above for the possible risks)

Q: I want to change my kernel, how do i do that?
A: I recommend you to not change your kernel since Skyhigh gives the best performance for broodROM RC4. Although you can download an alternative kernel and place it on your /sdcard, then reboot in recovery using the extended power menu and choose install zip from sdcard > install zip from internal sdcard > choose the zip file > install > reboot.

Q: My browser FC's all the time, how do I fix this?
A: Some people experience browser FC's, you can easily solve this by installing the broodROM_RC4_InetFixes.zip in recovery mode, don't forget to mount /system to be sure it installs correctly.

Q: My WiFi has constant drops, how do I solve this problem?
A: The first thing that you need to investigate is your "DHCP Lease Time" you can find this option in your router, if it's set to a low number please change it (mine is 604800). If this doesn't solve the problem you can try installing the KQ1 Modem using Odin (select AriesVE.ops from broodrom rc4 and choose the .md5 file as "Phone" package) and install the KQ1 Wifi Binaries using Recovery mode (also don't forget to mount /system) If you still encounter WiFi problems you will have to wait until the ICS Value pack release so i can permantely fix it.

Q: I saw the "Module Loader" app. what is this? and what can it do for me?
A: The module loader app is an app that allows you to run additional modules for your i9001. You can load several modules, I added the tun.ko module which is OpenVPN, the cifs.ko module which is Samba Shares Support (smb://) and the PPP Modules. If you are sure you will never use any of those you can delete the app by deleting "moduleloader.apk" file in /system/app

Q: I noticed that there are some bugs regarding the ICS Theme, some apps have gingerbread looks
A: You can solve this problem by downloading the newest ICS Theme and extract "framework-res.apk" and "twframework-res.apk" from the archive, then copy them from your sdcard to /system/framework and overwrite the current files, set the permissions to RW-R-R and reboot.

Q: I want to change the bootanimation, how can I do that?
A: I've chosen to keep the sanim.zip layout instead of bootanimation.zip which is default for SkyHigh v1.4. So you can place your bootanimation (named sanim.zip) in /system/media, set permissions to RW-R-R and reboot

Q: Is your Configurator BETA 4 compatible with broodROM RC4?
A: Yes and no, you cannot flash themes or mods, but you can use things such as changing boot animation, changing dns, updating hosts and so on (all things that include theme files are not compatible with broodROM RC4)

Q: I cannot buy apps from the store. how can i solve this?
A: Wipe the play store cache by going to settings > Applications > Manage apps > All > Play store > clear cache (thanks to nail16)
If this doesn't work, download an older version of the market here and delete /system/app/Google_Play_3.5.1.5.apk then place the market apk in /system/app and reboot (set permissions to RW-R-R) The market will now automatically update to the latest version.

Q: I cannot change the background of my lockscreen, why is that? I want to change it!
A: The lockscreen from KQ7 is a beta and does not support custom wallpapers yet. Although you can change the lockscreen by looking in the framework-res.apk file with Winrar, look for "framework-res.apk\res\drawable-hdpi" then you will find the "zzzzzzzz_default_lockscreenw.jpg" file at the bottom, You can replace that file by dragging your custom 480x800 lockscreen in there. set the compression level to "store" and put the framework-res.apk file on your /sdcard, copy it to /system/framework and overwrite the file. Don't forget to set the permissions to RW-R-R
(this also seems to work on the default way of changing the lockscreen background )

Q: I get random reboots, help?
A: Because all i9001 devices are not actually exactly the same, some devices could cause errors when using a support OC/UV kernels, you can flash the SkyHigh v1.3 kernel or Feacore 1.4 NonOC to prevent this problem.

Q: I have sdcard fails, how can I solve this?
A: the developer of the SkyHigh kernel is currently working on a fix, you can read about it here

Q: Where can I get additional information about the kernel?
A: You can find it in the SkyHigh Kernel Thread

This is my first non stock ROM and I'm very pleased with the result.

A question for the next version, the method to upgrade it should be the same as a fresh install? My phone was almost new when I flashed it and I didn't care about loosing my personal data, but now I would like not to loose the data making a hardreset or formating all the drives.

Many thanks for the good work broodplank1337!!!!

Thanks. Well actually you can flash it without formatting /data and you will keep your settings/apps.
What yoi always need to format is /dalvik-cache and /cache but that won't mess up your setting/apps.

I was able to change the lockscreen wallpaper, by opening the image in Gallery app, then More->Set as->Lock Screen Wallpaper.

Superb ROM, kudos to you and skywalker!
