BT static/crackle only on ArchiDroid v2

Hi guys, I installed archidroid couple weeks ago and I've been loving it until i recently tried to use a bluetooth headset with it. I'm getting very bad and loud static/noise to the point where I can hardly hear any music unless i turn it up to max volume. Doesnt matter what app I use, any audio including screen touches cause a loud crackle/static noise in the headset. I have tired different kernels v2 and it didnt make a difference. I get no static or audio problems using v1 but camera doesnt work. I would like to keep using this rom because its the best i've seen but i'm all out of ideas.

Any things I could try to fix this?

loud call

Hi,
I've updated my s3 from archi2.5.2 to 2.5.3 and i have one problem. When i am calling, speaker is too loud. I tried change volume during call, but it isn't work. I tried Boeffla Kernel change to ArchiKernel - problem is still here.

If you are on AD2.5.3 this is a known issue that is already solved in the AD3.0 experimental. You have 3 choices
1. Stick with 2.5.3 until 3.0 stable is released
2. Update to 3.0 experimental
3. Use AD1.X

Then probably CM related bug. Keep in mind that 2.5.3 uses sources from a nightly released almost month ago, so there's a chance it has been already fixed by CM team as users who had flashed upcomin' AD3.X (pls, don't ask for ETA.. :p) haven't reported any sound/bluetooth issues.
To sum up - currently there is no other solution for you apart from:
a) waitting calmly for the next version,
b) downgrading to 2.5.2,
c) upgrading to 3.X experimental.

If you choose c) then look at the AD2.X thread how to download this new version.

Regards

I stumbled upon this gem back when MK6 came out and was difficult to root, then Archi released his prerooted and unbloated stock :) Then I just started following AD, installed v1 and used it for a while before going to v2. Now some minor troubles, with 3rd party keyboards... Maybe a full wipe when v3 comes out :) I think most of the troubles I have are of my own doing, restoring incompatible stuff from nandroid. But for now, I'll just have to put up with them (they're minor annoyances, really). I recommend this wholeheartedly, considering the ****load of work Archi has put to this rom... Also, his replies make me laugh out sometimes :p
Hmm, some folks have dirtyflashed v3 experimental, wanna do that too :D (risk is mine, if something blows...) Also, few others have deserved thanks too for being active in user support, and helping Archi out.

The comments here are very random, but overall, this ROM is the most advisable to use? Revolutionary or S5 V3
People are freakin' lazy => People don't read previous pages & use search tool => People don't consider CM as a general source of the most issues/Don't post BBS logs/Blame rom for third-party apps' bugs => "Comments are random"

And so on. Some kind of endless bullshi..story.

I may have misunderstood the emphasis of your comment, but it sounded like something offensive, the fact that I have posted something that is already relevant or rhetorical, does not make me lay or much less lazy, I'm new in this community, and as usual many communities, it is always necessary to be creating several threads and several with the same title, because only so readers can offer some help, but this is a bad habit, and I fear that this community should not be this way, if the emphasis of your comment is that I mentioned above, I suggest you pay attention to your deductions ... Thanks!

You have totally misunderstood my idea dude.

What I attempted to do was to give you a quick explaination why 'comments are random'.

That's the truth in most cases and trust me, I CAN claim it as I have spent with this community more than a year helping, supporting & observing every post in every AD thread. It gives a wide look on users' behaviour. And once again - it's not related with all users, but here comes the summerising - while reading negative comments always keep in mind these few rules from my post above. It's crucial in making decision.

I understand, however it is worth remembering that I highlighted above "Perhaps I have misunderstood the emphasis of your comment" rightfully so, while I might have misunderstood, for example, you could be saying something completely different from what I had understood, but my question was just barely reformed, because I know that there are millions of users who are for or against some sort of related topic here, but there are some who can do a more thorough analysis on the system without judging the minutest details logical that the details matter much since they who give the differential in the system itself, but I wanted to know even if this system is recommended, as I do not speak nor understand the English language very well, I'm at the mercy of translators that perhaps do not make a 100% readable translation, and there are a few words out of nexus, and I end up not understanding very well what they wanted to pass the message... so I made a sort of "lean" question to make it aims without many specifications.

Ok, not to continue this any more, I will do my best to sum up for you in very short sentence what should you flash. I promise. :cool:

#1 Want amazing speed & performance? Choose AD2.X, but wait for upcomin' 3.X version which is said to fix a lot of CM-related bugs from the last 2.5.3.
#2 Want rock stable stock based rom with insane battery life and smoothness placed between normal stock and AOSP? Choose AD1.X - just flash the latest 1.7.18 as it doesn't contain any bugs, all running as it should.

For more info I'd like to invite you to specific threads (links in OP). :)

Well I know many, many ROMs out there, but never heard of this "AD2.X", this is actually a ROM or is a Kernel or Firmware? Because I know the ROMs are the ones with big names, these deeper ROMs usually not known, and because I am new here, many things still need to know ... So when you say the phrase "For more info I'd like to invite you to specific threads (links in OP) "what exactly is" OP "? since it is that there are links, so I need to know what it is, so I can do the downloads... :p:p

Of course ArchiDroid 2.X (AD 2.X) is a ROM based on CyanogenMod 11 sources. Actually AD 2.5.2 is the most stable. OP means Opening Page, the first page of a thread. This is Q&A Thread; downloads are not here, but in the Galaxy S3 Android development section. For example in AD 2.X OP, you will find, under download spoiler, latest 2.5.3, but if you click "All files" you will be able to get also previous versions.

Got it ... Well I'm using the MIUI V5 4.8.8 (the latest version available for the GS3 i9300 since SamMobile gave up to continue the development of operating systems for the GS3 then MIUI also stopped developing, and lately she's getting a little heavy since my version of GS3 is the 1GB of RAM, and for precisely this factor I need a lighter ROM and with the same functionality of MIUI V5 that perhaps it is full of very useful functions and customizations .. .)'m a perfectionist when it comes to operating system, since my smarthphone intermediate is then you need a good clean system without losing its quality functions ... Thank you "malachow" and "ste22032" the information provided, I am grateful! :) :) :)

    From Zero To Hero: Complete Installation/Flashing Guide

    This guide covers everything you need to do, to unleash full power of your SGS3 with ArchiDroid.
    You've obviously heard about "rooting" "flashing" or other strange things. But these tutorials are quite old and it's already much easier to achieve our goals. Instead of flashing old firmwares, using old methods I'll guide you through complete flashing of ArchiDroid.

    First of all you obviously need:
    - Working Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 International Version
    - Working computer with Windows OS

    1) Connect your phone to your pc and give it some time for installing drivers. When it's finished reboot your pc. It's important. After reboot check if windows can "detect" your phone, for example by entering "My Computer" section. It should be available as portable device.
    2) Download newest ArchiDroid .zip file and put it on your phone, I strongly suggest your internal memory.
    3) Disconnect your phone from the pc.
    4) Download attached Odin3 Software and unpack it's content on your pc: View attachment 1879375
    5) Click with your right mouse button on Odin3 executable and select "Run as administrator"
    6) Download latest PhilZ Touch Recoveryhttp://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2002953 in .tar.md5 format and put it in the odin's folder or somewhere nearby. DON'T UNPACK IT! File should look like this: philz_touch_4.92.8-i9300.tar.md5
    7) Click on the "PDA" button in odin and select your recovery in .tar.md5 format. Also untick "Auto Reboot" option. DO NOT TOUCH ANY OTHER BUTTONS OR CHECKBOXES!
    8) Turn off your phone
    9) Hold Volume Down + Home + Power buttons to enter Download mode. It should say "Downloading, do not turn off target"
    10) Connect your phone to your pc. It should be shown in Odin's message log as f.e. "<ID:0/003> Added!!".
    11) Hit "Start" button and be patient. It shouldn't take longer than a few seconds. Your phone won't automatically reboot, wait for progress bar to reach the end and move to the next point.
    12) Reboot into recovery by holding combination: Vol-Up + Home + Power. Hold it until you see "Samsung Galaxy S3" logo (about 7 seconds).
    13) Click on Wipe Data/Factory Reset => Clean to install a new rom. WARNING! From this point you'll be unable to load your current system as it wipes everything available (your internal/external card will remain untouched). Please make sure that you're ready for this step and that you have right .zip file available.
    14) After cleaning hit Install zip => Choose zip from sdcard. Then navigate to your location of archidroid.zip file and open it. Now you'll be able to set various options in AROMA "Setup Wizard", just follow the steps and ArchiDroid should properly flash and reboot your system after installation.
    15) First boot takes quite longer than usual, I'd say maximum of 5 minutes.

    Notice: This procedure is required ONLY for first flash of ArchiDroid. If you want to update ArchiDroid then simply download latest zip, copy it to your phone, reboot into recovery (or by holding combination above) and select "Install zip". Don't forget to select "ArchiDroid Update" mode to avoid wiping of data. No full wipes are required in order to update ArchiDroid.

    In case of any weird rare problems, or if you want to start from scratch...
    1) Download latest Samsung firmware for i9300, it doesn't have to match your region. Latest = Highest changelist. You can try unofficial Samsung repo for i9300 (with changelist number) or official, without changelist number. It doesn't have to be exactly the newest one but preferably one of the newest (some regions still have firmwares from more than one year ago...). Also try to use XX(EMG4) PDA instead of f.e. UB(EMI1) because XX are international.
    2) Unpack .zip file you've got, extract .tar.md5 file from that, ignore kies file.
    3) Enter recovery and wipe /data. It can also be done through stock recovery (Factory reset) but it's important to turn off your phone after cleaning instead of rebooting it.
    4) Enter download mode after wiping/formatting /data
    5) Connect your phone to your PC and load your .tar.md5 file as PDA in Odin, then start flashing. It can take up to 5-10 minutes because it's a big file.
    6) Let it boot properly, when you're sure everything works repeat custom recovery & ArchiDroid flashing.

    Above steps update low-level parts of your phone, f.e. bootloader, params partition, tz partition and hidden partition. While it's highly unlikely that any of these components would cause problem it's highly proposed to update low-level parts of your phone from time to time, just to ensure everything works properly. Custom roms don't update these partitions, as they're only being flashed during flashing original Samsung firmware via Odin, flashing custom stock roms won't work here. Also you get "maximum" cleaning, because literally you're overwriting everything on your phone.

    If you have any further problems or questions feel free to ask them in this thread.



    [SIZE=+1]ArchiDroid Core[/SIZE]
    Q: When I want to use "Freedom", "AdAway" or other similar app which edits /system/etc/hosts file, it always fails, what's the reason?
    A: ArchiDroid uses it's own built-in AdBlock, which is widely described in development thread. Therefore to prevent issues and slowing down the network, hosts file are permanently blocked from any modifications. This has been implemented to ensure that you know what you're doing before you mess with hosts file. In most common situations, you can point your favourite hosts editor (such as AdAway) to ArchiDroid's hosts file - /system/archidroid/etc/hosts, as THIS file should be edited INSTEAD of original hosts file. However if you really know what you're doing, you know that adding rules to original hosts file slows down the network dramatically and your app can't be set to use other hosts file, then you can unlock original hosts file through ArchiDroid app bundled with ArchiDroid. However keep in mind that I don't support this method, as it's deprecated, obsolete, dirty and ineffective method of setting rules. If you want to do it in proper way, use ArchiDroid's enhanced hosts mentioned above.

    Q: I get "set_perm_rescursive some changes failed" error during flashing ArchiDroid. What's going on?
    A: Simply update your recovery to latest version. Latest CWM, TWRP or PhilZ Touch Recovery work properly. Initial support for this function was added in ClockWorkMod 6.0.4.4.

    Q: Whoa! What happened to colors in ArchiDroid, why they're "blacked out", "dimmed"? I want my stock colors back!
    A: ArchiDroid in default configuration applies custom MDNIE settings, which change displayed colors. Samsung (and AOSP) uses over-satured, plastic, vivid colors, while ArchiDroid uses balanced and natural colors for our super amoled. It's up to you if you like it or not but if you decide to flash ArchiDroid it will come with natural balanced colors. You can change them very easily in Display Options (ArchiDroid 1.X) or in Advanced Settings (ArchiDroid 2.X).

    Q: How to use delta upgrades provided by ArchiDroid?
    A: Simply open any terminal, for example Android Terminal Emulator, type "su" and then "adflash" command. You'll be able to set various options and get exactly what you want. Remember that only "git" mode provides delta upgrades.

    Q: My ROM reboots instantly after finishing first boot! What is going on?!
    A: As you may know ArchiDroid contains two parts. Android (ROM) and ArchiDroid Backend (init.d scripts written from scratch by me), which works "next to" Android itself. ArchiDroid backend applies some good settings for you and if it decides that a hot (or even hard) reboot is required, it performs it. Hot reboot is always required during first boot from full wipe and sometimes it may be needed also after update mode. You don't need to worry about that, it happens only once after flashing and is totally intended. If you want to learn more please read more about "ArchiDroid Backend" in development thread.

    Q: Why this ROM doesn't work with dual boot feature, found in Googy Max, Devil and Siyah kernels?
    A: It does, but only as 1st ROM. ArchiDroid includes AROMA wizard, which is compatible only with flashing as 1st rom. Luckily you can swap it to the 2nd rom after flashing but you always must flash it as 1st. This is known issue with dual boot, as it doesn't work properly with aroma-based roms. ArchiDroid is not faulty here.

    Q: I have a suggestion! Could you please implement it?
    A: ArchiDroid focuses on stability, performance, battery life and out-of-box solution. It gives you literally out-of-box well tweaked and ready-to-go system with nearly everything you'd ever need. However I've already implemented many suggestions proposed by a community, so feel free to let me know if you have a nice idea, I'll tell you what I think and if I'm able to implement it.

    Q: How can I use my own settings for Yank555 Kernel?
    A: You should download full Yank's kernel from his thread and flash it after flashing ArchiDroid. If you select Yank's kernel in aroma then it comes with a preset chosen by me, so you should reflash it on your own.

    Q: Which settings are best?
    A: ArchiDroid offers you a power of flexibility and respects your choice. All default settings are proposed by me, according to my taste and what I think is "the best" for you. In most scenarios you'll be very satisfied with my settings, even if you won't touch anything during flashing in aroma. However you have a freedom of choice, bunch of options to choose from and even a few presets, which give you full choice between performance and battery. For now I can assure you that default settings are already well tweaked and optimized, so I highly suggest staying with them, unless you know what you want :). The same goes with various "magic tweaks" and third-party modifications. I suggest to avoid them or mention them in development thread so I'll tell you what I think about them. Unfortunately most of these "magic tweaks" cause more harm than good.

    Q: I have excessive battery drain! What to do?
    A: ArchiDroid in default installation gives you BetterBatteryStats app, which is extremely useful for finding out what causes such high battery drain. You should launch BBS app at least one time (to initialize cache) and then reboot your whole OS right before going sleep. After boot enter your pin of course and let your phone literally "sleep" as deep as it can, of course with network turned on, because we want to get as close score as possible but without any useless apps running in the background. After night or at least a few hours in such total deep sleep unlock your phone, launch BBS and save log in .txt format. Attach this log to your post and hope for the best, we'll try to help you. All posts regarding battery drain WITHOUT BBS log will be ignored. If you won't provide at least BBS log then don't expect any help at all. ROM itself does not cause any additional battery drain. It literally loses from 0.1% up to 0.3%/hour in deep sleep, with 2G turned on and Wi-Fi turned off. It's your phone and your ArchiDroid. While I can prepare best rom for you I can't control what you do with it. If you kindly ask for finding battery drain culprit - I'll help. If you blame ArchiDroid for battery drain, I'll tell you to change the rom.

    Q: Okay, let me fix it by myself. I can see really big values under RILJ, multipdp and sec.fd.wakelock wakelocks. What to do?
    A: In general these wakelocks are attached to 3G connection. ArchiDroid supports "fast dormancy" function, which improves your signal and battery life during 2G/3G connection BUT it also needs to be supported on your provider's side. Basicly you have a few scenarios:
    1. Your provider supports FD, and you have FD enabled. That's great, you will get better signal and less battery drain compared to non-FD.
    2. Your provider supports FD, but you don't have FD enabled. Expect slightly worse signal and more battery drain compared to above option, but that's not a big problem.
    3. Your provider doesn't support FD and you don't have FD enabled. Same as above, however in this situation it's great that you disabled FD, as you're avoiding excessive battery drain.
    4. Your provider doesn't support FD but you have FD enabled. This is the worst case because you're wasting battery on FD requests, which are never accepted on the provider's side.

    There is no general answer if you should have FD enabled or not. We don't know where you live, we don't know architecture of your city, and we don't know your provider. If you think that 3 wakelocks described above in fact appear in your BBS log then you can try to disable FD and see if situation improved. To disable FD open /system/build.prop through any root explorer and find this part:
    # Fast Dormancy toggle. If your provider doesn't support it then it may be better for you to uncomment this line
    #ro.config.hw_fast_dormancy=0
    And then remove bolded # from second line, as showed above. If you'd like to enable fast dormancy once again simply comment it out. Reboot is required after these changes. WARNING! These wakelocks are pretty NORMAL if your phone uses 3G. They won't magically disappear, we're talking about excessive battery drain here. If you use 3G often then obviously it will require much more battery than 2G.
    And once again. There's no right answer if you either should or should not have FD enabled. You need to find it out youself.

    Q: This rom is awesome! Can I gain access to any beta versions? Weekly build is too old for me!
    A: Please read GitHub section in development thread. You'll be more than satisfied.

    Q: I see that you have many languages in aroma, could you add my own?
    A: Personally I make only two translations - English and Polish. All other languages are available thanks to appropriate contributors. If you want to contribute to ArchiDroid project and implement your own language then I'm very happy to hear that and I'm looking forward to merge your strings :). You should start with reading dummy.lang, I've attached proper instructions there. It's really easy job but it requires some patience and free time. If you're familiar with github or you want to learn how to use it then I'd be very happy to see a pull request with your language.lang. Otherwise everything you need to do is register at github and edit above dummy.lang file. This will automatically send pull request, which I can merge.

    Q: How can I disable these cpu stats on the top?
    A: This app is called "Cool Tool", you had an option to disable it in aroma. You can also delete/freeze it with Titanium Backup, or change it's behaviour in app settings.

    Q: When I switch to ART runtime, it automatically switches back to dalvik after reboot, why is that?
    A: If you have xposed installed then it forces dalvik. You need either to uninstall xposed or stay with dalvik.

    Q: My bluetooth headset doesn't work! I can hear only weird noise or can't hear anything!
    A: ArchiDroid 2.X is based on open-source Android sources. It doesn't have many closed-source drivers, while only a few have been reverse-engineered to provide you with functionality of your device. ArchiDroid 2.X will work only with a few BT headsets and it won't change until Samsung releases proper drivers, what is very unlikely to happen in near future. Either deal with it, or stick with a stock-based rom, for example ArchiDroid 1.X.

    Q: I think that I found a bug. Could you fix it?
    A: First of all, please notice that ArchiDroid 2.X is based on AOSP. Some things may be unfixable, while other are hard to reproduce. If you want to have your issue resolved then you must provide as much information as possible, because if you won't expect answers like "works fine here".
    Some things to consider:
    a) Have you tried full wipe and clean ArchiDroid installation?
    b) Have you tried "Bare Bones" preset during flashing, which gives you clean AOSP installation?
    c) Have you tried to reproduce this issue on latest OmniROM nightly build?

    If bug exists in nightly then it's global bug and either it's unfixable or will be fixed soon (next release). If bug exists in normal installation but doesn't exist on bare bones preset then it may be possible that third-party ArchiDroid function causes issue. In this case I'd be very happy if you could make some basic tests and try to find root of this issue. If bug exists also on bare bones preset but doesn't exist on latest nightly then it's ArchiDroid-specific bug and should be fixed in sources. It's ultra important to provide at least answers to following three questions. If you're advanced user it'd be also cool if you can provide a logcat (if possible) and more specific information f.e. how to reproduce a bug. 99% of the ROM problems are caused by the base, therefore I can't directly fix them and you should forward them directly to the OmniROM. Especially if you can reproduce bug in b) and c) steps.

    Q: Camera or Wi-Fi doesn't work right after flashing with custom kernel. What's the reason?
    A: In some rare scenarios it looks like flashing custom kernel in aroma may cause such issues. Users say that flashing stock kernel, first boot & loading camera, and then flashing custom kernel helps, however I couldn't reproduce camera/wi-fi issue, so it's not global bug.

    I've installed this ROM about a week ago, after I got sick and tired of mij slow device.
    And I must say, it's wonderful. Everything works just fine, fast and smooth.
    Only issue I found is that the camera crashes sometimes, but I see you are working on that and it should be fixed in the latest experimental.
    However, I'll wait for the next stable version to be released.

    Thanks archi, you put a lot of hard work in this to keep improving.

    By the way, could someone try to explain in simple language what the Hwcomposer does. I tried to find it here on xda, but I could really find a simple answer that I could understand easily.

    HWComposer is the "thing" which uses hardware (GPU) to accelerate rendering of 2D, mostly GUI.

    I9300 is infamous device for it's broken hwcomposer, which is due to samsung's policy of closed sources and no help for developers. Recently Dhiru fixed it for Nameless ROM Lollipop, and I backported his fixes to AD KK.

    With working hwcomposer, it draws rectangles (GUI elements) much faster due to GPU being available for that task. All common tasks such as drawing, resizing, scaling, interpolating etc. can be accelerated by GPU now.

    The final visible effect is that GUI is now much smoother, it uses less energy, phone heats less e.g. during watching youtube, and battery lasts longer.

    This is still WIP, but due to HWComposer being broken since ages, I had to backport it to stable branch of AD, even if I stated that I'm "done" with KK :).

    You'll read more in the changelog, in a few minutes.

    The volume of people complaining about the recent update highlights numerous things-
    Were not used to issues on any of Archis ROMs, stability is his calling card.
    Not all these issues are Archis, some of them are CMs, read read and read some more.
    Go read the Nameless ROM thread, the he composer implementation posed massive issues for them and just reading through it shows its not as stable as Archidroid.
    How much more can Archi get out of KitKat, would you put up with the current minor? Issues ( for me there's little that comes close to this ROM) so Archi could concentrate on the Lollipop build.

    The problem is, you won't achieve anything without experimenting, and experimenting causes bugs.

    We wouldn't achieve snapiness of AD if I didn't implement my optimizations, and trust me, they weren't bug-free, exfat was segfaulting, kernel was not booting, nothing was displayed on the screen, recent sleep of death issue is caused by that as well.

    The thing is, all of that was fixed, and we can again feel the stability of older version, with the advantage of new things.

    This is normal order of things. Either you experiment, and you go forward, or you stay forever on old, crappy and bugged sources. HWComposer was never working, Dhiru managed to make it so, and I'm now trying to backport it so we can win in long-run.

    You have older versions, you can use them. Nobody is forcing you to update. Moreover, the people that spot the bugs are users, not me, I'm physically not able to catch every bug. If there are not enough feedback on experimental releases, then it goes to the stable. And I'm fixing the bug after someone reports it.

    There are other ROMs if you don't like my philosophy of experimental & stable releases. You can e.g. use CM11, which is frozen since leaving of codeworkx and xplodwild, nothing has been added/changed/fixed since cm-10.2. Are you happy with that fact?
