(7/23/12) Tweaked Stock for GT-P6800 Version 5.0

This is the BETA release of my tweaked stock ROM, based off of the new XXLQ1 Firmware. It uses AROMA to install the ROM and gives the user quite a bit of choice as to what apps to install. There are also some choices for mods and fonts, but these are limited ATM. I HAVE NOT tested all of the AROMA options in terms of apps and fonts, but there is nothing that will break anything....

This is a BETA release, so please don't flash unless you are willing to accept the risk of some bugs....no screenshots test, as it is stock...

Features

- Based on Official Firmware XXLQ1 (ATO);
- Deodexed,
- Zipaligned,
- AROMA 2.0 Installer;
- Stock kernel,
- Init.d support;
-Removed CPU rendering, full GPU rendering;
- init.d scripts include: RAM management and VM tweaks, zipalign, flash memory performance and more,
- build.prop tweaks for improved screen responsiveness, keeping home app in memory, etc.,
- Most widgets and icons removed from homescreen to make it cleaner and easier to customize (see screenshot),
- Optimized pngs and smali/xml launcher/framework tweaks for a smoother TW experience,
- See change log, in post #2...

Coming Very Soon

- Advanced/extended power menu (debugging now...)

Known Issues

-Homescreen is a bit messy when you first boot, depending on what you install via AROMA.... In the final, I will have all widgets, removed and app shortcuts aligned, so you have a clean slate.
- You tell me....

INSTALLATION

1. Make a Nandroid backup of your current ROM,

2. Download the flashable .zip file you want below,

3. Reboot into clockwork mod recovery,

4. You must flash the XXLQ1 ICS firmware via ODIN/Heimdall before flashing this ROM! Also, a data wipe is strongly recommended before flashing Thanks.

5. Flash the ROM zip in recovery, following the prompts in the AROMA installer (NOTE: on the custom install menu you need to use the volume keys to scroll up and down, working on this...),

6. Let it boot up and then go through the setup wizard,

7. Let the widgets load up and things settle, sync., etc.,

8. Enjoy, and please post bugs in the thread, if any ( "XDA App keeps force closing" is NOT a bug....).

9. If you like the ROM, please hit the thanks button....!

DOWNLOAD

ROM

(Mirror 1, more to come, if needed): http://d-h.st/pNd

Samsung Apps

http://d-h.st/mSz

PLEASE NOTE:
  • This ROM will flash the modem.bin from the ATO firmware. This should not be an issue for users, but I just want you to know...I have it in there for beta testing purposes, and will remove in future releases...
  • If you use tegrak or some other over-clocking app, or if you restore data with Titanium Backup, please do not post bugs you may have when using those programs. The same goes for restoring system data via Titanium Backup. I cannot debug issues arising from their use.

Thanks/Credits
  • lowtraxx for helping me with the broken fonts issue...
  • More to come...

WARNING/DISCLAIMER

As with all custom ROMs, you flash the ROM and any other items linked to in this post or the remainder of this thread at your own risk. I cannot and will not be held responsible for anything that may happen to your phone, others or you as a result of flashing this ROM.

Change Log
Version 3.0--->Version 5.0
  • [*Initial Release of ICS Version

Version 2.0--->Version 3.0
  • Went back to XXLA4 base, completely rebuilt, with all apks optimized;
  • Removed CPU rendering, full GPU rendering;
  • Added some init.d tweaks to increase ext4 I/O speed,
  • revamped RAM, priorities, handler and vm tweaks;
  • incrased sdcard readahead to 2048,
  • added modded stock launcher from 10.1 that has also been optimized (still not as smooth as TW launcher, IMHO), with smali code altered to work with sqlite version in the firmware;
  • added back memo and a couple of other apps (Kies, etc.) to lite base;
  • Other dorky stuff I am sure I forgot...

Final v 1-->version 2.0
  • Completely rebuilt from newest official firmware DXBL3;
  • Only one version available (should work over all firmware, but see "Please Note" in OP). This is a "Lite Version";
  • Made Samsung App flashable zip available for those who want full ROM;
  • Working HideBar App;
  • Increased free memory in supercharger script;
  • Removed TCP tweaks from build.prop;
  • Redid allanimations in framework and launcher to increase speed/smoothness and reduce lag;
  • Probably a lot more I forgot...

RC3-->Final
  • De-symlinked system/app and data/app_s;
  • Added noatime flash memory tweaks;
  • added drop caches script to (hopefully) reduce lag in homescreen;
  • Messed with the animations a bit to speed them up;
  • More optimizations of Samsung TW apks to at least make them work better (wish I could get rid of them...);
  • Minor speed and battery tweaks;
  • More I am sure I forgot...


RC2-->RC3
  • Changed kernel flash method to improve (hopefully solve) problems with flashing onto some stock firmware;
  • Fixed app drawer background;
  • removed some init.d scripts I felt were extraneous;
  • Speed tweaks (let me know)...


RC1-->RC2
  • Fixed issue in kernel flash that (I hope) was preventing some users phone to force close/bootloop on startup;
  • Fixed issues with some apps and games crashing (again,..);
  • Symlinked /system/app/ to /data/app/ to offload some data on the system partition;
  • Moved some apps to /data/app so they can be uninstalled;
  • Adjusted the RAM script settings to be less aggressive, but hopefully just as effective;
  • tweaked VM settings;
  • removed some init.d scripts I felt were not adding all that much (make things simpler);
  • further tinkering with framework to smooth out TW interface. I find that the only noticeable lag now is after closing out a program, there is a fraction of a secon of lag when switching home screens. I hope to remove this by the final release...

I will be testing this but I need a copy of a DXLA2 modem to make my own testing consistent vs a purely stock ROM, I dont want the modem file to cause excessive battery drains or what not, I have the single DXLA2 tar file for my P6800 inside it has a file labelled modem.bin can i safely flash that using Odin after I flash to this custom rom ?

Thumbs up
Flashed. Smooth and bug-free so far - definitely a step up from the stock. A big thumbs up for the OP

Am eagerly waiting for theme tweaks in particular to the taskbar.

Hi,
Just wondering if you are you planning to do a wifi only (6180) version. There seems to be a lack of love for the non GSM Radio 7.7's out there with not a single rom in the forum.
Thanks a lot.

I think someone is working on one (well, I know he is, but not sure what his plans are for release). I will ask him what's up and then port this ROM if he is not planning on releasing it. It would be better, clearly if someone with the device were to release a ROM for it...
