IMPORTANT!! Please take 2 minutes to read this

• After completing installation of ROM at the end of the aroma installer, the script will ask if you want to reboot. Once you click finish it might cause an error. Don’t worry about this as the ROM has installed successfully.

• On my class 10 card, the ROM take around 5mins to boot. So if you are on slower card or nand, first boot and setting up will be painfully long. Please have patience.

• After signing in google and completing setup wizard, you might get blank screen. Wait for 10 sec and hit the hardware home button on your device. The launcher will show. If you get an “not responding” for setup wizard please click “Wait” . Do not click OK.

Developer option is not enabled by default. Please go to Settings>About Phone and tap on Build number 10 time. Dev options will be enable. Now go to Developers option in Settings and enable “Force GPU rendering”

• By default the Governor is On Demand. For better battery life and smoothness choose SmartassV2. Don't change default CPU frequencies. Keep it 245-998Mhz as to avoid bugs caused by changing frequencies. Dont forget to tick/check "set on boot" after changing governor.

Lock screen clock widget is slightly towards the right. You need to remove the widget and add again to get it in center (Don’t know if it’s a bug or feature but other ROMs have this too)

• On 240 dpi the lock screen widget, the date gets clipped if we enable Nav bar. So stick to default DPI is 200 and you are good to go. (200 is my preference since NexusHD2 ICS coz everthing seems so cramped on 240 and you have to scroll everytime for anything).

• If your are using Dual pane mode or tablet combined nav/status bar stick to 160 dpi or else everthing will got out of place.


IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM AND YOU WANT TO POST IT ON THIS THREAD, PLZ GIVE US AT LEAST THIS MINIMUM DETAILS
1) Tmous1024 or EU448
2) MAGLDR or CLK
3) What recovery? CWM, 4ext etc etc
4) Installation Nand, Data2Ext, NativeSD
5) Using Swap or Odex
6) System partition.

For example you can write " TMOUS,CLK,4ext,Data2ext, No swap, no odex, Sys=340MB. I have a problem *********"
Thank you for you time


Installation instruction
There are many different bootloaders/recoveries/method to install in HD2, but If you still new to HD2 and you are starting from scratch the fastest would be this.
1) Download HD2 toolkit and install HSPL, MAGLDR. Download and instructions here
2) Download 4ext recovery from here and follow this instruction bellow:

Just a brief understanding. During installation of rom has 3 options for setup. 1. NAND(Full, Custom ) 2. DataOnExt 3. NativeSD
In brief
1. NAND. Installing everything(System and data) on phone(Nand). Further you will have option full install or custom install
2. DataOnEXT. Installing all system files on phone(NAND) and Installing all data files on sdcard(EXT4 partition)
3. NativeSD. Installing everything(System and Data) on sdcard (EXT4)

Lets start with DataOnExt

I have attached a file for 4ext recovery from "Native sd" thread which makes partitioning of sdcard with ext4 very simpler.

Installing recovery
1. Download and extract the attached file in folder example lets call this folder "D:\4ext".
2. Boot in MAGLDR (By holding power off key during start)
3. Choose "USB flasher" Connect your Hd2 to computer using usb cable.
4. Run the DAF.exe from the folder that you have downloaded/extracted example "D:\4ext" click next > next> "(it will show error "readfile missing" no problem. just continue)
This will install 4ext recovery and reboot the phone

Partitioning SD card with ext4
5. Boot into 4ext recovery from MAGLDR (by choosing ADrecovery) you will see menu from 4ext which is quite similar to CWM recovery.
6. Go to "advance" > "partition SD card" > "Remove all partition and start from scratch"
Select the size of for 1st partition (Choose greater than 1024MB) (This will be the size of data partition)
Select the size of for 2nd partition (Choose "Skip")
Select the size of for swap partition (If you using Swap choose the size of swap partition or if not "Skip") then it will start formating and ask you what format do you want to format sdext.
Choose for format "EXT4" and Let it complete formating

Installing ROM
7. Now copy my ROM zipfile into the sdcard (You can do this from the recovery itseft by choosing "toggle usb storage" in the main menu and connecting hd2 to pc using a cable. after finish copying the file safely remove device from PC and slect unmount from HD2 )
8. In recovery main menu choose "install from sdcard"
9. Choose "NAND with DataOnEXT" and then choose full Install or custom.choose whatever you wish. continue with setup. ROM will install
10. Reboot and enjoy.

Note 1 Default system partition size selected for DATAonEXT is 390M(Why 390MB? since data is mounted on sdcard, why not use whole Nand as system).
if you want to adjust, change the value in flash.cfg in the 4ext folder before proceeding step 2

Note 2 the above setup is for DATAonEXT. If you decide to install NAND minimum install change to "system ya 370M" in flash.cfg and then continue step 2, 3, 4, 7, 8. (Skip step 5, 6) Step 9 choose NAND and custom

Note 3 . If you decide to install NAND full install change to "system ya 370M" in flash.cfg and then continue step 2, 3, 4, 7, 8. (Skip step 5, 6) Step 9 Choose NAND and full

Note 4 . If you decide to install NativeSD do steps 1 to 8. step 9 choose NativeSD. Install ROM. after installation reboot to MAGLDR.
In the main menu of MAGLDR choose 10.services > 1. bootsettings > 3. AD SD dir > select folder "NativeSD" (browse using Volume keys)
Go back to main menu
choose 10.services > 1. bootsettings > 1. Boot Source > 1. Android from SD

Really nice to see one more dev.
Thanks button(s) pressed.

It's a shame that I JUST installed Tytung's new JB yesterday, should have waited one more day!
I'm not a dev. Dont even know C++ or Java... But I do read a lot of Github, so I get some basic idea and succeeded luckily...:p

Dont replace Tytungs ROM.. Remember this is beta dont know what more bugs are present.... Just flash on NativeSD and try it out before you replace and regret...... Just a safe guard comment....

@macs18max: I don't know what happened with initrd.gz (NativeSD). It can't work with my phone. However, I used your initrd.gz (NAND) + HypoTurtle patch -> works perfectly. Your rom is the first 4.2 rom within working wifi. Thanks for your hard work :good:

Hey... Anyone else have an issue with NativeSD... I think it's my installer and the way I'm zipping it... For me I took one whole day to get the installer working right.... I tried more than 15times and finally got it working... For the same system files, and same procedure, sometimes I had superuser problem, sometimes SytemUI force closes... I'm using gzip in Ubuntu. I also tried 7zip (store mode) in windows but it failed....
Any idea's Zesjters? you r a pro in this...
