Welcome to the Samsung Rugby Smart (SGH-I847, Galaxy W Variant) Super Thread

If you create a support thread related to items in this super or for more generalized help, please PM me or motorhead1991 as a heads up. We've been doing a lot of work on getting things going for the device and can likely provide some amount of help. Having said that, please create a thread with the problem so everyone can benefit if a solution is found.

We are pleased to announce the formation of Team Rugby. A group of us doing development work have gotten together to centralize source code, development and IRC channels. Things are getting under way and we will be posting a bit more as things progress. The two biggest changes are the source code being moved to TeamRugby on github and a new IRC channel on freenode #teamrugby .

Team Rugby is pleased to present....

Goo.im Mirror
There is now a goo.im mirror that will contain the latest and greatest of the items listed below. I will be updating the thread and mirroring to goo whenever there is an update. You can find the files here or within goo manager (available from the play store) under devs/kemonine/apache.

IRC Channel
Team Rugby can be found on Freenode #teamrugby. A lot of discussion happens there and we also tend to idle in the original IRC channel (below).

motorhead1991 has been kind enough to setup an IRC channel on irc.androidirc.com for us. Channel #rugby-smart We both idle on and off during the day.


I am not responsible for anything bad that comes to your device when using the information posted in this thread. Everything here is dangerous, may cause a brick, will void a warranty and has the potential to just plain wreak havoc. Do not complain you followed my instructions and met with a dead device. Consider yourself warned


I've tested to the best of my ability, but I am one person with one device, I cannot catch all potential failure modes. If you find a problem and a fix, or have information that should be added let me know and I will update the necessary information.



I've noticed an uptick in downloads. Please feel free to post and ask questions.

Thanks to newbit for his work on the OTA update and getting us an ODIN image that can serve as an upgrade if the OTA fails.
Thanks to motorhead1991 for all the tweaks / kernel and ROM help
Thanks to nicedream06 for the help testing CWMR 6.0.1.1

Thanks to THE-E for the Galaxy W ODIN images which I used as a base for the ones posted below.

Misc 2
Title: Misc Tweaks / Tricks

2.6 / 3.0 Custom Kernels
Motorhead1991 has created a thread for the current kernels being developed: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2056652

Tethering
Thanks to nicedream06 for figuring out how to get tethering on the stock ROM without the need for an ATT tethering plan. I have taken his work and turned it into a simple update.zip and Tasker profile. You need root in order to do enable tethering.

Enable Tethering
  1. Download enable_tethering.zip
  2. Drop it onto your sd card
  3. Install from Clockwork Recovery
    If you do not have clockwork recovery, but have root, unzip the package and read through the update-script.
  4. Reboot
  5. Install Enable_Tethering.apk if you don't have Tasker. The app was generated from the below profile using "Tasker App Factory".
  6. Install Tasker
  7. Download Tasker_Enable_Tethering.prf.xml
  8. Drop it on to your sd card
  9. Import the profile into Tasker
    For the curious: It runs sqlite3 every time the mobile network becomes the primary internet connection ensuring that tethering will allowed.
  10. Enable tethering!

Stock Tethering
  1. Download stock_tethering.zip
  2. Drop it onto your sd card
  3. Install from Clockwork Recovery
    If you do not have clockwork recovery, but have root, unzip the package and read through the update-script.
  4. Reboot
  5. Your back to stock!

Custom Stock Kernel
Motorhead1991 has put together a custom kernel for stock devices, has a number of useful tweaks for CPU governors, IO scheduler and the like. His thread is here. If possible, please keep custom kernel discussion in his thread so he knows if there are problems.

Motorhead's sources: https://github.com/Motorhead1991/sam...source-msm7x30

[de]odex
CWR flashable de-odex / re-odex updates. If you don't know what this is, you don't want it. Please note that the de-odex update will re-install the Tethering Manager apk. You'll need to re-run the enable_tethering CWR zip
Power Menu Mod
Mod by Motorhead that adds reboot / recovery / download to the power menu. Requires a de-odex'd system. This is a manual tweak right now. I will eventually get to turning it into a CWR.

Thread for discussion: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1903199

Wake Key Mod
Courtesy of Motorhead1991 some tweaks to sec_key.kl for enabling extra wake keys (like the home button)
sec_key.kl

Tweaked build.prop
Courtesy of Motorhead1991 a customized build.prop:
build.prop

Updated Modems (CWR Flashable)

The title says Samsung Rugby Smart Thread, this is a Rugby Smart thread, posted inside Galaxy W due to the lack of subforum.

Yes, all of the information is already written before, for the Galaxy W, not Samsung Rugby smart. This thread is intended for Rugby Smart owner, NOT Galaxy W owner.

This thread, according to OP's post in the General thread, is intended for Rugby Smart users to recover/restore system images. Several things might differ from our phone. And they are in the process of porting Arco's CM9 to their device.

I didn't see any problem for rugby smart owner to post here, unless the mod says otherwise.

That's my opinion, sorry for the irrelevant post. Next time read the thread title.

The stock camera / video app records video in AAC @ 44khz.

I was able to use a 3rd party app from the market (lgCamera) to record video with AAC @ 48khz and 256kbit.
