What's that?

To install
  • Download package from:
  • CREATE BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING
  • Check known issues
  • System size: 180 MB for minimal, 290 MB for full, 360 MB for the full+odex install
    Note: Odexed system will be ~330 MB only, but the process requires some temp space under /system.
  • Installation steps:
    • 1. Choose kernel - tytung's JB kernel / marc1706's JB kernel
      2. Choose location - NAND, NAND with DataOnEXT; NativeSD on SD-EXT (with tytung's kernel)
      3. Select data connection - PPP, RMNET (only if bootloader is MAGLDR)
      4. Select SWAP or skip step
      5. Choose SYSTEM/DATA apps - keyboard, gallery, launcher, now/talk/tts, mail/music/maps/calendar, both 4.1 and 4.2 are available
      6. Select wipe method - dalvik-cache only, data/factory (NativeSD safe), none;
      7. Select ODEXing or skip step
      8. Select/Skip option to retain your PA-Preferences configuration
      9. Done - run installer

Use ROM Toolbox from PlayStore, go to Performance -> Memory manager; choose Presets -> Strict (or Aggressive). Apply and select "Apply at boot".

Note: The P.A.C. framework support is just an update on top of PA-HD2, you can't run the two versions parallel, the ROM will use the same PA-HD2 SD-EXT/NativeSD ID/sub-directory!

Hints

Issues
  • My other HD2 is broken, can't do testing or everyday development, but will try to add features and updates
  • On first boot the Google TTS will crash - if installed.
  • If you have low ringtone / missing notification sound issues on v2.52-1.x, use this workaround:
    • go to Settings->Sound->Volumes
    • unset "Link ringtones & notifications volumes"
    • set both of them to lowest values
    • set them to the expected values
  • The 2G notification toggle does not work. You have to go to Settings->Wireless&networks->Mobile networks (or long press 2G toggle) to turn on/off the 2G-only setting.
  • On v2.52-1.x don't use RMNET with MAGLDR+marc1706

If you can't boot the ROM, please repeat the installation with the following steps:
  • Install as before, choose the same options
  • After deployment finished, save the log files
  • On the next screen deselect the reboot option
  • Finish deployment and go back to recovery
  • Attach phone to desktop, mount usb, copy log from root of the SD to desktop and upload/share the file
  • Also add the following details to your comment: phone (512/1024), bootloader (cLK/MAGLDR), recovery, kernel, installation (NAND, NAND w/ DataOnEXT, NativeSD), or even partition layout...

Tools / Fixes
  • See 2nd post for tools for v2.52-1.x
  • v2.54-2.3 and up has the following tools included in the installer
    • Manage packed applications: install/remove or switch between 4.1 and 4.2 apps
    • Change kernel/connection: change the kernel (tytung's, marc1706's) and/or connection type (ppp, RMNET) w/o re-installing the ROM
    • reODEX: re-ODEX the system after changing system apps/framework
    • Swap install/remove: install/remove init.d script for swap
    • Change framework between PA and P.A.C. (depends on the changes applied under P.A.C.)
    • Change HTC-RIL library between HTC-RIL_2.2.1001G and HTC-RIL_2.2.0054HM

OMG! Sitting in the middle of a storm with slow/unreliable net connection...
...I was managed to upload the file, but can't fetch it to verify MD5.

You can download the package from here: http://ul.to/w7ghbmy4 - DO NOT FORGET TO CHECK MD5! (e6b99a7d6dff97613254fad96831584f)

Let me know if uploaded package is OK!
