INTERFACES

HOLO
Google's HOLO UI Implemented in Smooth and Stable GingerBread !






Instructions for Holo UI

Later after following all the steps from Installation procedure follow the steps given below :
  • Go to Settings > Cyanogen Mod Settings > Interface > Check "Hide Indicators" Option.


TIMESCAPE

Instructions for TimeScape UI
Choose "TimeScape" during installtion of The Ultimatum in the UI selection section ,

MINOR BUGS :

1.The text during setting of TimeScape Ui is Dark and a little difficult to read , but it's just one time initialization so it doesn't matter.
2.Only the Timescape widget works , rest timescape widgets like call , face twitter give Forceclose ,
It's because I've Disabled them, TimeScape widget gives all the info in one place, so why need other Ram consuming widgets ?
3.once in a Bluemoon the one of TimeScape features [probably call related] will give Force close Error ,
but just ignore it as it won't cause any system stability nor affect the Timescape .

KERNELS


Fire


Fire kernel is the Best Kernel ever made for Ace !
It's Stable , Fast , Customizable and Loaded with Features...!!!


Features
  • Battery driver made by LibiSC.
  • Some Improvements in idle support for ARM.
  • Overlocked AHB clock at 800,768,729Mhz .

  • Kernel compression changed to XZ.
  • Small changes in smartassV2.
  • Partly disable vsync.
  • Most of TheAceKernel features.


Why should I use Fire Kernel
  1. Use Fire Kernel if you don't have an EXT-4 partition on Sd-Card .
  2. Also if there are Stability problems using Swap All kernel like all Apps giving Force Close or Lag in System , then Switch to this Kernel.
  3. Users having Class 4 or Class 2 Memory Card are Recommended to use this kernel.


Swap All


Swap All kernel is based on Fire kernel which is the Best !
It's Stable , Fast , Customizable and Loaded with additional Features like
to Expanding Internal Memory and Implementing SWAP Support...!!!


Features
[same as Fire kernel] +
  • SD-EXT partition (/dev/block/mmcblk0p2) on phone's memory card is mounted as /data
    instead of original internal data partition(stl13).
  • Original Internal Storage (/dev/stl13 on stock GB & /dev/block/stl13 on AOSP) is formatted
    to be used as swap partition entirely so as to fully take advantage of fast internal data partition
    and relieving read/write load on memory card.
  • Swappiness set at 30.


Why should I use Swap All Kernel
  1. Use Swap All Kernel if you have an EXT-4 partition on Sd-Card and Class 6 or above Sd-Card .
  2. Use this if you want to expand your internal Memory to install Apps .
  3. Use this if you want to have a native SWAP support in System as a result of which you will Gain Massive Multitasking Ability .

Question & Answers


  • Flashed Rom but the it doesn't start / Rom stays in the Bootscreen ?
    Answer:
    Which kernel did you choose During Installation ?
    If you choose swap All , then it needs Ext-4 partition ion your Sd-card.

    If you don't want to make Ext-4 Partition then select Fire during installation .

    Lastly, check the version of recovery that you are using , We have found that the most compatible & reliable version is touch recovery beta... This can be found via it's thread on XDA SGA dev pages.

  • Q.Can I Install CronMod or Amarulzz or App2Sd or Link2Sd Scripts on this Rom ?
    Answer
    YES and NO !!!

    YES if you have selected "FIRE" in installation process [Kernel Selection] .

    NO if you have selected "SWAP ALL" installation process [Kernel Selection] , Because Memory Expansion has been Enabled by Default in Swap All , any other Scripts will cause Instability in System ,which may Result in Loss of Data


  • Q. I can't do backup (nandroid backup) via Recovery OR I can't wipe dalvik cache ?
    Answer
    This Issue is only there if you select Swap All during installation process [Kernel Selection].
    Wiping of Dalvik Cache Issue cannot be done through recovery option , as the Internal Memory was the Place where Dalvik Cache used to Ideally get Stored before... But here in this Rom Internal Memory is used for the SWAP (RAM Extension)... So you have to use Special Flash-able ZIP to do Data Format and Dalvik Wipe [HERE].

    For creating a nandroid for this rom , First you will have to Format Data and then perform Backup .
    You can also use Titanium to do a complete rom backup & then restore via the same... This has been Tested and works great for me with this Rom.


  • Some Symbols or some language is not present in Keyboard ?
    Answer:
    Install the KeyboardFIX from Download section .

  • When the screen gets off [sleep mode], the music is jerky/distorted ?
    Answer:
    There are many Filters in it and I've Highly Optimized them to work with the 2 players that I've supplied with the Rom .

    But still if you want to use other players then Go to Cyanogen Settings > Performance > Cpu settings (or something similar , i don't exactly remember the path :P ) > Set the Minimum Frequency to a little higher value , then again check if the problem persists , there will come a Time when there would be No Distortion in music even after screen off . .


  • Can I use xyz Script for Performance ?
    Answer:
    NO!
    Performance has been optimized to the Fullest , flashing any other Script will conflict them and may cause System Instability .


  • Status Bar/ Status Bar icons doesn't load after Re-Boot ?
    Answer:
    Just start the "Terminal Emulator" app and everything will appear.

  • How to get delivery reports for SMS ?
    Answer:
    There is a patch available in the Downloads Section named "MMS".
