Question FAQ by sunny2303 and toxicthunder

What is an MD5 check-sum?

MD5 sum helps you identify any probable data loss issue which might have happened during the download process
and as a result of which you might be at a risk of flashing a incomplete/inaccurate download.

To mitigate this risk, simply check MD5 sum
(This can be easily checked with the help of ES file explorer/ Root explorer apps) and compare it with MD5 given on download site.

These 2 minutes can save 2 hours of reflashing for you.

What are the safe kernels that I have to be on, in order to flash this ROM?

CM9 / CM10 based kernels
any NoteCore, SpeedMod v4 and above, Franco v4 and above series of kernels.
any GB kernel.

I am coming from ABC - XYZ rom.
Is it safe to flash this ROM over it?

Yes ONLY when your ABC-XYZ reads -

Official CM10 or AOKP builds
CM10 or AOKP variant builds
Any other AOSP based ROM

I want to brick my device and then blame HI for it.
What do I do?

The best way to brick your device and blame HI for it is to flash HI over these kernels -

any CF--Root ICS kernel
SpeedMod v3 and below, Franco v3 and below
old leaked kernels and re-packs such as LP1, LP5, LPY and LP6 etc

What is Full Wipe & what is Cache Wipe using CWM?

Full wipe = Wipe Data / Factory Reset

This wipes all your user data like user applications, account settings, logins etc along with the cache partitions.
However, data stored in your sd-card like pictures, movies etc remain intact.

Cache wipe = User Applications and data remains untouched.
Only the cache you have previously accumulated gets purged.

What are Gapps? Why do I need them?

Please buy a Nokia or a BlackBerry.
Best wishes,

Which version of Gapps should I flash? And when?

You can also download from or other JB threads that provide the same.
You may flash them after you have installed the ROM (assuming you have done so after a Full Wipe).

Yet, I would personally request that you first flash the ROM and re-boot to see if all's well. Flashing Gapps + Kernel + other MODs seems to be giving issues on THIS rom.

Which kernels can I use with HI?

Since the ROM has been updated with the latest r3p0 drivers, it is essential that you use ONLY the kernel that comes with the ROM.

Where is the Email App? And the Exchange App?

Anything that you can't find will be provided in a .zip file called [COLOR="Green]RemovedAPKs[/COLOR].

Download the zip and place in your device.
Using a suitable File Manager to extract the zip.
Copy the apks for applications which you want.
Paste them under /system/app folder.
Change permissions to rw-r--r-- (simply set it same as any other app in the same folder)

I can't find S-Note or S-Memo in this ROM.

Neither can I.

What is the default DPI in HI and how can I change it?

Default DPI in HI is 320. To modify this -

Open your File Browser that has root access.
Navigate to /system/build.prop and open it as a text file.
Scroll down to ro.sf.lcd_density and set it to any number of your choice. Recommended values are 240, 213, 160 etc.

In case there are errors or issues, no one is responsible but yourself. So unless you know what you are doing, please tread cautiously.

How do I choose themes on HI?

Download any compatible theme of your choice from the Play Store.
Go in System Settings --> Themes –-> Theme chooser.
Choose downloaded theme –-> Select Apply.

My Question is still unanswered. And I am a bit shy of asking on the threads, lest I should be stoned to death.
What do I do?

Read some motivational books that help you work on your self-confidence.
Come back to the thread and ask.
If it turns out that your question could be answered by simply using the search function,
or reading the first 4-5 posts - chances are you will still be stoned.

Motivational books are boring. I watched 300 instead.
Now I am all pumped-up to ask any question, no matter how pathetic.

Good. This gives us the opportunity to see how long you can withstand the stoning.
Your watching 300 should be of some help to you.

You guys just require everything to be flashable! Some clear instructions but no one want to follow them Its hard to read than to flash ?
Hope you guys know there are two root access granting apps - Superuser by chainsdd and SuperSu by chainfire.
By default the SuperSu is there in the rom. When u open it it will give you update binary pop up and when u click on continue it will say operation failed.
So just hit the play store and install the Superuser (for those who have hard time finding it on store here) After that open Superuser once and update if it asks to.

Now go ahead and open SuperSu and it will ask for root access now....grant it and done. Now all the root access will be given by Superuser and not SuperSu.

Hope this helps Try reading and following the steps...they are easier than flashing

P.S.- Will be fixed in the next version. Added to the to-do list and working on it and other fixes (basis Preview 3 by xplodwild)

Working on next build, as well as the OP.

One more thing, before trying out solutions to any bugs or issues, please consult with people who have the necessary know-how regarding the topic - Asylum inmates need not be told. This is just for the newer users.

If you try to be a smartass and pass on stupid advice (like Abyss is safer than CM9) I will report you immediately.


We don't want excuses toxic we want no we demand results and etas and Siri and smemo too lol
