Par·a·gon n.
1. A model of excellence or perfection of a kind; a peerless example

This ROM has been in the making for several weeks. It's finally to the point where I feel it is ready for release. The biggest holdup for me was getting GPS working perfectly on JPY. After a long beta testing period and with the help of beta testers it's finally ready for you to enjoy.

Changelog in second post.

  • JS3 Base rom - Deodexed, zipaligned and png optimized
  • Bloat removed
  • Paragon Kernel - OC/UV up to 1.4ghz (no OC by default - use Voltage Control app). Optimized for speed and battery life. Several kernel options available: 1200, 1280, 1300, 1344 and 1400mhz. More on kernel in 3rd post.
  • JK4 Modem - I've done a lot of testing with the others and keep coming back to JK4
  • My own custom theme. Used elements from several of my favorite themes along with my own original ideas. Came out looking really nice.

  1. BACKUP First!
  2. Flash back to stock via Odin.
  4. Copy ROM and attached to SD Card.
  5. Reboot into recovery.
  6. Choose Reinstall packages (might have to do twice).
  7. Choose Install zip from sdcard.
  8. Choose zip from sdcard.

It will take a long time to reboot. It should ask you if you want to backup and restore. Please select this option. It will automatically apply the lagfix. After it boots for the first time let the phone sit for a couple of minutes. Then reboot again and the install will be complete.

Paragon Kernel
Based on speedmod k13a kernel.

Hardcore deserves all the credit here for the awesome speedmod kernel. I have taken his kernel and added OC/UV support and compiled several different versions. The default paragon kernel is OC to 1.2ghz with HZ set to 100hz. No OC by default. Turn on from voltage control app.

From Hardcore's 'What is speedmod kernel page':
- Based on JPX Froyo kernel source code
- 340MB RAM
- Voice calls: audio works with standard stereo headphones and phone mic
- Voice calls: louder earpiece volume and tweaked mic gain to reduced distortion
- Recordings: corrected mic gain to remove audio distortion from video recordings
- Slight boost to rear speaker volume level
- Improvements to FM radio sound quality
- Headphone output boost with support for Voodoo Sound application
- Improved sharpness: enabled AMOLED mode in MDNIE processing
- Superb text clarity: Removed over-sharpening of the screen
- Better colors
- Enhanced version of sztupy's Universal Lagfix
- Safest ext4 mount options
- Supports ext2 / ext3 / ext4 / ext4nj / jfs lagfixes (only ext4 is recommended)
- Supports conversion of /system partition
- Minimum brightness lowered by 30% for comfortable low-light use
- Auto-Brightness adjusted to keep the screen dimmer longer in low light
- Auto-Brightness adjusted to make the screen brighter earlier in bright light
- Auto-Brightness sensor polling interval increased from 0.5s to 1.2s
(Saves battery and makes brightness levels more stable)
- Disabled kernel debug logging
- Disabled Android debug logger (can be re-enabled via Tweaks)
- Replaced kernel jhash2 with jhash3
- Battery level polling frequency reduced from 5s to 60s
- Tweaks for CFQ IO scheduler
- Tweaks for VM parameters
- Tweaks for increased Battery Life
- Updated ext4 code in kernel
- Properly working Tiny RCU patch for better speed and efficiency
- Updated lowmemorykiler from Android git
- Includes neldar's BackLightNotification 2.3
- Compiled using latest Codesourcery 2010.09-51
- Better GPS performance
- usb car dock support

Please see shaolin95's OC/UV Guide for instructions on how to get a stable OC/UV system.

Now this came out of the blue rigth when I am about to test Darky 8.1 and Serendipty 3.5 so I guess I would give this one a shot first!
Do you have that Wifi fix applied here?
Also, any problem using a different modem?

Why now when I have 11% battery.... Guess I'll flash tomorrow and possibly see if any bugs arise. This looks fantastic though.

I am getting ready to tryng a new kernel that is not too far from my normal 1344 overclock...maybe I can convince him to give it one or two more steps so I can still do 1344 with his kernel :)
