experience you problems

I thought I would try to build a rom from source and I wanted to try one that might be faster or at least really small. Rom itself only takes up 24mb on internal storage!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Working:
  • Both CDMA and GSM Networks are working (tell me if GSM isn't)
  • Rotation
  • Camera! Thx to wedgess!
  • Bluetooth (should be I don't have devices to test with)
  • Wifi
  • Root
  • USB Mass Storage or MTP if your using wedgess' or cosmicdans' kernel
  • GPS
  • TouchScreen
  • Advanced Slim Settings (A.S.S)
  • Video playback is just as buggy as other JB roms.i
  • Multiboot (also specific to cosmicdans' or wedgess' kernel


Not working yet:
  • Camcorder is still broken on the latest build but Camera is working 100%
  • Camera and Camcorder work on wedgess' & cosmicdans' kernels
  • OTA causes Settings to force close. So DON'T TOUCH IT! I should remove it but I'm lazy
  • Something I missed? Don't be shy tell me in the thread!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~


Install:
  • You must have an [BIG]UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER[/BIG] if you were wondering
  • Perform the usual nandroid backup of your working set-up.
  • Use LuPus V3 or Turbo JB Kernel
  • Wipe data
  • Wipe cache
  • Wipe Dalvik cache
  • Format System ( found in mounts & storage in CWM )
  • Flash ROM from the DOWNLOADS section in the 2nd post
Huge thanks to CM, FXP, KXP, SlimBean's github, Slimrom's homepage whose work and sources made this possible.
paxChristos for his cdma fix on jellybean
Multiple developers on the Xperia play forums

And if anyone is interested in what I changed from CyanogenMod's device trees to make this compile, then here's my github:

This is awesome man! So tiny! Would be awesome to build MIUI5 on this little baby! Any plans for a GSM version eventually? I'm sure a GSM version would build fine, if not then we could just try using the ril-related libs from CM10 :P

Wouldn't it be better to help cj's source builds? Splitting/kanging the project is not the best idea.

Very nice! I'm definitely going to try this out. 24MB is freaking tiny for a ROM. :3 I'll get back to you on results.

If want to sure, but like Dan said it might be easier for me since I just need to change from Zeusc to Zeus. Let me know if you really want to otherwise I'll probably be putting up a version for gsm users.

Next build has the mirror issue fixed and it does not need the lagfix zip. I'm still working on the kernel, just cause recovery is still broken on it.

Good luck with the kernel thing, I got no idea lol...

Maybe a GSM port wouldn't be so bad. Since I would like to make an MIUI5 based on this, if we can just replace libs and/or hack the framework smali to use GSM, that would make MIUI5 easier to support both CDMA and GSM.

Or even if, when you get around to it - build one GSM version and if I find the differences in framework and libs myself then you wouldn't have to worry about building twice every time. For once it'll be a ROM which is CDMA built and needs a GSM Patch instead of the other way around :P

I use cm10 sources for the kernel maybe that will have a better outcome.
