The absolute best mod on XDA without a doubt is nitro X vision full support and you can pretty much set the model completely how you want as long as you have terminal emulator best mod around

I'm using the new alpha since the current release doesn't' seem to want to work anymore.. I have a Samsung Galaxy J7 SM-J700P Boost Mobile rooted with the current TWRP and SuperSU Pro installed. Android version 6.0.1 v. J700PVPU1APH4 with Busybox Pro installed as well.

Pimp My Rom v3.3.1 and the old google play release keep asking if I have root permissions. What do I do?

Stop using Pimp my rom. Development on this ended ages ago, I remember this app became integral for those of us who had bought the lg motion back in the day.

Then my next question would be... What is the next best thing. as the program was reliable up to KK 4.4.4...

There are a couple of options that include some of the features available in PMR.
HEBF is another tool on xda that works wonders.
L speed has a lot of choices for what you're looking for and is easily found in the play store.
Anything else found in PMR has a respective thread that could be found all over xda.

I see that you know a lot of tweaking apps and I'm curious if you know something similar to GravityBox or Xblast where you can schedule vibrations off for calls just on specific time of the day. This two apps that I've mention are not compatible with MIUI 8 and I hope there is some alternatives which happens to work.

Edit: MIUI 8 had just added this feature and we don't need a module for it anymore. I wasn't expected that. :D

yeah, it sometimes will do that.
if you have a custom recovery, you can install xposed and enable one module at a time and reboot after eaxh installation, if you get a bootloop, just flash the uninstaller and then uninstall the last module you installed. Thats the way I do it, anyway. ?

    • Feed Interval
    • Feed Timeout
    • Amount of Random bytes
    • Fill-watermark
    • Kernel random read wakeup threshold
    • Kernel random write wakeup threshold


    Dual Bootanimations
    Allows you to have 2 different bootanimations which will alternatively be displayed, one boot each.


    Lock Apps in Memory
    Bypass Android's built-in task killer by locking any installed application in memory, including system apps!


    Navigation Bar Toggle
    Self-explanatory, toggle the navigation bar on & off

    Further Help

    Here are some further explanations of some PmR options :


    Multitasking Section

    ¤ OOM groupings :
    Android, like any other Linux system, has a built-in task killer, called the LowMemoryKiller (a.k.a LMK).
    The LMK analyses the RAM usage of all applications in real-time, and when the system has too many apps open, or too much RAM consumption, the LMK will start killing apps to free-up some memory.

    To determine which app to kill first, the LowMemoryKiller distinguishes 10 categories of apps, which are called the Out-Of-Memory (OOM) Priorities.
    As the name implies, the LMK will create a kind of ordered list based on the determined priority of the apps.

    Those categories are as follow :

    • Foreground App
    • Visible App
    • Secondary Server
    • Backup App
    • Home App
    • Hidden app
    • Empty App
    • Perceptible App
    • Heavy-Weight App
    • Content Provider App

    For each of these categories, Pimp my Rom will modify the memory threshold for LMK to start killing processes and adjust the priority of the categories to match three preset levels of multitasking :

    • Low : Your device will be able to handle less opened apps at once, but consume less RAM and less battery
    • Mid : An average good level of both Multitasking and not too much RAM drain/Battery drain
    • High : Your device will be able to handle a big bunch of opened apps at once without being killed

    The OOM settings in PmR also takes care of the ADJ, but I might add a separate 3 levels radiogroup for ADJ too


    ¤ Minfree Values :

    The LowMemoryKiller isn't only about OOM groupings, the Minfree values are very important as well :
    The Minfree module of the Low Memory Killer is here to set the minimum amount of free RAM that should always be available.
    If the free RAM level goes below the Minfree value, the the LMK starts killing apps (based on the OOM priorities, remember ? ;))

    In other terms, if the LMK is the gun for killing apps, then the Minfree module is the trigger ^^

    Again, PmR will allow you to choose between 3 preset levels (for the purpose of clarity for the user, the levels are inverted from the actual values. i.e : High Level in the app wil set a low minfree value, allowing for more multitasking) :
    • Low : The minimum amount of free Ram (minfree) will be set high, allowing apps to get killed by the LMK quickly. = Not much multitasking, but good battery/less lags as you always have a good amount of free ram
    • Mid : Balanced Level, good multitasking, not much lags and average battery
    • High : Big multitasking hog



    ¤ zRam (Zero Capacitor Ram) :

    Taken from Wikipedia :
    zRam is an experimental (staging) module of the Linux kernel. It was previously called "compcache". zRam increases performance by avoiding paging on disk and instead uses a compressed block device in RAM in which paging takes place until it is necessary to use the swap space on the hard disk drive. Since using RAM is faster than using disks, zRam allows Linux to make more use of RAM when swapping/paging is required, especially on older computers with less RAM installed.

    To make it simple, zRam allows to virtually increase the amount of RAM your device has by using the Swap spaces in your device memory.
    This is mostly profitable for low-end devices that come with few ram (512mb generally).

    PmR offers 2 levels :

    • 64 mb : virtually adds 64mb of RAM
    • 128mb : virtually adds 128mb of RAM

    zRam settings requires a kernel that includes this module.


    I hope these little explanations will help you understand how to use those settings, and help you find the right combination for your device and use

    • Fixed the issue where beats audio and walkman options would be displayed for gb roms when it shouldn't
    • Various bugfixes (a few swapped selections and unworking tweaks)
    • Removed the extra apps screen, this wasn't really matching the mainline of this project, since you can grab those apps from the market. Plus this makes the whole package lighter.
    • Switched to miui installer theme
    ø New Tweaks selection screen : Multitasking

    ==> Choose between :

    • 4 levels of OOM Priorities
    • 4 levels Minfree settings
    • 2 levels of ZRAM compression
    • Tweak your kernel and dalvik cache to behave well and be stable on hard multitasking conditions


    ø New Tweaks selection screen : Networks & Internet

    ==> Security tweaks :
    • Reinforce your TCP/IP Stacks to make them resist to SYN attacks which cause a DoS (Denial of Service) on your device. Now those lame-ass blackhat hackers won't harm you with this.
    • Block redirects : auto website redirections will be blocked
    • Block source-routing : source-routing can be used to hack into your device as it allows full tracing of packets.

    ==> Stability & Speed tweaks :
    • Increase the buffer and queue size of each tcp socket to give more stability on high broadband consumption conditions
    • Allow the system to re-use the Sockets on TIME-WAIT state. In clear time-wait causes memory-loading, memory-loading causes internet lagg, internet lagg sucks.
    • Various IPv4 protocol speed tweaking scripts using sysctl
    • DNS and ppp0 tweaks for faster name-resolution, which means faster connections to websites.


    ø New Tweaks selection screen : GPS Configuration

    ==> Choose between 79 countries (and 5 continents) of gps.conf files: those files are essential for the accuracy and lock-speed of your device's gps. (Thanks to gangsterjoop for the files)


    ø New Adblock file of over 200 000 hosts ! (100x more than before) (Thanks to BSDgeek_Jake for the host file) --> added to extra features screen


    ø New init.d scripts :
    • Move Dalvik-cache to /cache to increase data storage
    • Bind-mount dalvik-cache to allow a device to boot without sdcard (useful for devices with damaged internal sdcard)
    • Touchscreen responsiveness improvement tweaks


    ø New Enable/Disable features :
    • Disable and Re-Enable Android logger
    • Disable Gentle Fair Sleepers
    • Disable New Fair Sleepers
    • Disable Normalized Sleeper


    ø Rewritten every single init.d script :

    This allowed me to realize many of them were not working, so I added a lot of missing values, and fixed a countless number of errors, redundant values and typos. So there should be some big improvement on the effects of init.d tweaks.
    I also set an order of execution of init.scripts to avoid conflicts.


    ø Removed themes and S-Voice

    The S-Voice flaw that allowed other devices to use it appears to be patched and it was heavy, and themes were heavy and not really useful, you can download a countless number of them for free on the market


    ø Changed installer theme to Sense

    I realized that the options subtitles were not readable with ics theme, so most of the tweaks effects explainations were hidden.


    ø Pimp My Rom will now come in two versions :

    One will include the latest version of Aroma (with touchscreen working out-of-the-box, but issues on some devices) and One using Aroma v2.51 (With touchscreen calibration, and this version appears to fix the weird texture/ghost-input/moving screen/vibration issues people have with some devices with aroma v2.56)


    ø Major code clean-up, various bugfixes

    Re-organized and cleaned-up both aroma-config and updater-script
    Fixed the way the installation process input displays sections and sub-sections
    Fixed some tweaks getting installed instead of others when they shouldn't, and some other bugs


    I'm pretty sure I forgot some stuff, I'll add it when it comes back in mind




    Developer's Guide on Implementing PmR in your Roms




    1) Implementing PmR with a custom preset & playstore OTA updates working
    1. Flash your Rom & apply the tweaks and options you want to be included in your preset
    2. Create a /data folder at the root of your Rom's zip package, and in this folder create a /app folder (so you now have a /data/app path
    3. Download this version of the PmR apk and place it in the freshly created /data/app folder in your Rom's zip
      (this is the playstore-signed version, which will allow your users to receive OTA updates as if they installed it from the playstore)
    4. Grab the following files from your device and place them at the corresponding locations in your Rom's zip package :
      (If some of those files are missing on your device, don't worry, this simply means they are not needed in your preset)
      Code:
      - /system/etc/init.d/99Pimp_my_Rom
      - /system/etc/init.d/98Entropy
      - /system/etc/init.d/S90zipalign
      - /system/etc/init.d/04dual_bootanim
      - /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
      - /system/etc/hosts
      - /system/bin/entropy-gen
      - /system/xbin/rngd
      - /system/xbin/openvpn
      Note : this does not include the Apps & Mods section, except for the Adblock & OpenVPN Support
    5. Create the following path of folders in your Rom's zip : /data/data/com.androguide.pimp.my.rom/shared_prefs/
    6. On your device, navigate to /data/data/com.androguide.pimp.my.rom/shared_prefs and copy all the content of this folder to your Rom's zip freshly created /data/data/com.androguide.pimp.my.rom/shared_prefs/ folder
    7. Open your Rom zip's /system/build.prop in a text editor
    8. Now open your device's /system/build.prop in a text editor, and copy everything from the first occurence of "### Pimp my Rom : xxx" to the end of the file, then paste it at the end of your Rom's build.prop (Do not forget to save the modifications)

    Ok, now we have added all the required assets for Pimp my Rom and your custom preset, let's pass-on to the updater-script modifications in order to install those assets properly and set the right permissions to them.

    1. In your Rom's zip package, navigate to /META-INF/com/google/android and open updater-script in a text editor
    2. Copy the following lines near the end of the file, but before "unmount("/system");" :

      Code:
      ui_print("Installing Pimp my Rom with a custom preset...");
      package_extract_dir("data", "/data");
      set_perm_recursive(0, 0, 0755, 0755, "/system/etc/init.d");
      set_perm_recursive(0, 0, 0771, 0660, "/data/data/com.androguide.pimp.my.rom/shared_prefs");
      set_perm(0, 0, 0644, "/data/app/com.androguide.pimp.my.rom-1.apk");
      set_perm(0, 0, 0644, "/system/etc/hosts"); 
      set_perm(0, 0, 0755, "/system/etc/install-recovery.sh");  [COLOR="DarkRed"][B]<<< Do NOT include this line if you didn't activate init.d through PmR in your preset[/B][/COLOR]
      set_perm(0, 0, 0755, "/system/bin/entropy-gen");  [COLOR="DarkRed"][B]<<< Do NOT include this line if you didn't use the Entropy Generator in your preset[/B][/COLOR]
      set_perm(0, 0, 0755, "/system/xbin/rngd");  [COLOR="DarkRed"][B]<<< Do NOT include this line if you didn't use the Entropy Generator in your preset[/B][/COLOR]
      set_perm(0, 0, 0755, "/system/xbin/openvpn");  [COLOR="DarkRed"][B]<<< Do NOT include this line if you didn't activate OpenVPN support in your preset[/B][/COLOR]
      ui_print("Done installing Pimp my Rom - by [email protected]");


    2) Adding a Pimp my Rom entry to your Rom's Settings.apk - Coming Soon

    very good work! will i can to install this on my LG Optimus Hub whit CM 7 rom (android 2.3.7)?
    Thanks for your kind words,

    This has been designed mainly for ics & jb roms, but you can still try on gb, just make sure you do NOT select gapps/inverted gapps and themes.
    The tweaks, extra apps and extra features should work properly.

    In fact, the easiest way for you would be to Select "Stock-based Rom" option in the first screen, so the script won't display gapps and themes options. I will rename "Stock-based rom" option to "Stock and Gingerbread roms" in next update, thanks for the idea.

    Please make sure you post your results, so I can add your device to the confirmed devices list if it worked properly.

    Regards.
