Polluti0n's Rom Patch

=Disclaimer=
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS TO YOUR PHONE, YOU ARE FLASHING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I HAVE TESTED THIS PROCEDURE BUT I CANT SAY IT WILL WORK FOR YOU. IF FLASHING THIS CAUSES YOUR CAT TO PEE ON YOUR BLANKET, I WILL NOT CLEAN IT UP.
=Description=
This is a patch for 4.3 and 4.4 roms. The patch can take care of many things such as changing kernels, changing bootanimations, fixing video recording and much more. The beauty of this patch is that it uses the aroma installer, so it actually lets you decide what options/fixes you want to install. You could actually flash the patch and not install one single thing if you didn't want to. Also this patch can be flashed as many times as you want so you can get things setup just the way you want. Anyways, have fun and leave feedback
=Changelog=
Version 2.0
  • Included an updated uber kernel
  • Included the most up to date CM kernel
  • Added an old PAC kernel that supports BLN (this is experimental)
  • Removed boot animations that had issues
  • Tweaks to screen flicker patch to make it work on more roms
Version 1.0
  • Aroma installer
  • Choose which kernel you would like to install
  • Fixed Beanstalk boot animation to be full screen
  • Choose from a ton of custom boot animations
  • Choose which patches you would like to install
  • Updated fixes for Video Camera (should work with most roms)
  • Hacked adobe flash player (must use DOLPHIN JET PACK)
  • Option to wipe cache and delvik cache
  • Fix any screen flickering that was present on 4.3 and 4.4 roms.
  • Set default CPU governor to "Wheatley" to avoid any wakelock issues.
=Instructions=
  • Simply Flash the zip in recovery and select the options you want.

Trying it now, I'll let you know how it works.

Edit: I've been running it for about 5 mins now and nothing so far. I'll report back in about an hour. Awesome work Polluti0n!

Edit2: Still looking good an hour and a reboot later. I was able to trigger flickering pretty reliably by scrolling the baconreader widget and that seems to be gone.

Thank you for the updated version! I have been running patch_Adam's BeanStalk with you patch always and it helps incredibly! Just as a question, in the new version, is the Screen Flicker fix disabling permanently the Hardware Overlays like in your first version?

Yes it just fixes a bug where the script quit before finding all the places to change to quote polluti0n in the other thread:

Quote:

Well I think I found the problem. Still need to test some stuff out.

So in the build.prop @ line 118 you have the following value:
persist.hwc.mdpcomp.enable=false (this is in a section called screen flicker and is one of the values to fix flickering)

then @ line 137 you have a value of:
persist.hwc.mdpcomp.enable=true (obviously these are contradicting values)


Why my flicker fix isn't working:
My script scans the build.prop for "persist.hwc.mdpcomp.enable=" if the value equals "true" then my script will change the value to "false", but if the value equals "false" then my script will simply exit.
So my script scans till it hits the first persist.hwc.mdpcomp.enable=false and thinks everything is cool then exits. It never scans further and finds the contradicting value at line 137.

Let me do a little testing and work on writing a failsafe into my script that should fix this issue

I've had it in five minutes. Need more time to know. Should the hw overlay in development be checked (it isn't) or does that become irrelevant with the patch?

On the latest unofficial CM 11 any of the kernels throws the endless error "unfortunately, the process com.android.phone has stopped."

Thanks for the feedback. It's my understanding that there are a ton of changes to the new cm11. In fact we may get an official cm11 build but no promises. Anyways for now just use the cm11 kernel that came with the rom.

To revert back to the default kernel just dirty flash the rom again and the kernel will be overwritten. You may run into wakelock issues which is a common problem with cm kernel.
