( Remember : you are not experiencing the true strength of sjb if you don't do a full wipe )




Suggestions/recommendations for and after installation [IMPORTANT]


FULL WIPE IS RECOMMENDED FOR ANY VERSION OF THE ROM.

0.Don't restore anything from titanium backup.. its better to download apps from play store...
1.Rom is tested only on fxp, mesa jelly bean and nAa's 2.6 kernel kernel , however it should work fine on others[/B]
2.In MX player , by default use SW decoder.. if the video doesn't work properly , only then use HW decoder.
3.Keep all the animation set at 0.5x in developer options
5.[optional] you can delete 1 of the launcher apps. [2 included]

NOTE : do not use seeder or anything else with this rom ( you dont have to ).. if you do then don't post here about battery life... thanks.



HOW TO INSTALL :

Quote:


Note : only for unlocked bootlader
1. copy super jelly bean and gapps to sd card
2. flash any jb kernel for your device..
3. (optional but recommended: flash stock ics .587 ftf excluding kernel and simlock.ta files..)
4. boot into recovery
5.full wipes
ie :
wipe data / factory reset

6. flash Super Jelly Bean
7.flash gapps : use this link : Gapps For SJB

Note : after install , let the rom settle for atleast 15 to 20 minutes.. then reboot and use as normal



( gapps not included )


Caution : I am not responsible for any damage done to your device or your head by using this :P you are making these changes on your own..

Rules : All XDA rules.

FAQ :

I am having bootloop( never boots just shows kernel logo and bootanimation ) . What to do ??
Please follow the steps and install correctly because hundreds of users already use the rom without any problem !


I am having a laggy rom
Do a clean install of the rom ie wipe data(factory reset) , wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache , wipe system , wipe data and cache


My wifi is not working
flash the wifi modules (present in addons ) of the respective kernel . it will be present in the kernel thread !!


My keyboard/hardware keyboard is not working
You need to disable the hardware keyboard, to enable any other keyboards. The hardware keyboard will still be working, even if you disable it


I get a status 7 error in cwm after wiping system

1.That's normal because the rom.zip wants to get information about your phone and after wiping system it can't do that. Open the zip on your pc, go to META-INF -> com -> google -> android and open the updater-script with a text editor (like notepad++). Now you delete the first few lines with "assert" and "getprop". Repack the zip and you should be able to flash!

2. If you did the first method and you still get a status 7, could it be you are on lupus kernel? Read the FAQ for more info/help!


CPU settings :
No OC , interactive governor and deadline as scheduler !!


which kernel do you use ? :
nobodyAtall's 2.6 kernel with No OC ,stock settings


Can I even use lupus kernel ? :
It looks like you get a status 7 error while installing the rom on lupus kernel, so better use another one (you can install the rom on any kernel and then flash lupus kernel if you want to, but it seems like there are some problems with lupus)!


Why is rotation not working? :
You have to enable Auto-Rotation in settings -> display -> auto rotation!


How to fix superuser? :
Please try flashing this. It should remove the superuser.apk from /system/app. Then please reinstall superuser or supersu from playstore. If the zip doesn't work, please report!


How to enable ANT+ on this rom? :
Follow the steps on this post by steinarlundemo. Thank you for this great method!


How to disable the button backlight? :
In system/etc/hw_config.sh, look for echo number > $dev/button-backlight/ and change the number! Change it to 1, to disable the light. (Thank you washwash for pointing it out here)


How to fix offline charging (charging when phone is turned off) on this rom? :
Flash the zip from this post by sud.vastav. Thanks for this!


what can i do to repay you ?
just hit the thanks button here

BATTERY TIPS :
Few basic tips to really get the most battery out of your device..

1.Try changing the kernel if you have a heavy battery draining
2.Reduce the screen brightness and the screen time out to a comfortable value
3.Don't Overclock as i said many times already.. use 122/1024 ( even for gaming )
4.Turn off wifi , bluetooth etc when not in use
5.Before going to sleep , turn off useless apps such as whatsapp running in the background
6.Restart your phone once everyday or every two days.. ( i restart my phone everytime before putting it for charging , i usually re-charge only when the battery reaches 1 % )

Info 2
Initial impression is a nice smooth rom with good touch responce/sensitivity.

Nice to see a rom that hasn't got lots of apps cluttering up my phone, although there are still a few apps that could be left to users to download e.g. keep and mx player. Gapps does install some apps I feel are junk/bloat but that is down to my own preferences.

Would be nice to have some wallpapers & themes in future update.

Lupus JB v7 - wifi not work.
3.0.8-nAa-03_SK17 - wifi working.
3.4.0-nAa-01_SK17 - wifi working.

Problems

Screen only rotates for apps when keyboard is to be used, i.e. when messaging/typing in browser but doesn't rotate launcher/app drawer etc.


I will add more feedback if I find anything else to report

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A few screenies for those that are asking (Clean install with only Gapps added)

Thank you very much, I guess there's a problem with the rotation sensor. Should be fixed when I rebase it on the latest nightly
