Why bother though?
The moment you install 2 new apps, the phone becomes unusable.
Personally, i just installed the first 2.1 firmware and i enjoy using it (rarely) for a few minutes like an antique.
Really makes you appreciate today's smartphones [emoji28]

    Welcome to DarkyROM.

    // This ROM will make your Samsung Galaxy S blazing fast
    // and add a ton of features which greatly extend the capabilities of your phone.

    // This ROM should be compatible with all SGS variants [not tested with all]
    // If you don't have an international I9000, use the Darky App and skip the kernel and modem (i9000M and i9000T users skip just the modem).

    Enjoy! ;)

    Hi Community,

    I've been invited to TechTalkUK - they do audio podcasts about everything tech related.

    5.5 is so good, there's no word for it, no issue with anything, don't even need to enable lagfix it's super smooth even without.

    Not getting any FC when receiving calls, using barcode scanner, every bugs I've read about here seems fixed... :love:
    mpiercce --> Post
    Having used both Doc's and your ROMs, I have a lot of respect for what both of you have done!

    Monitoring the forum closely, I know why your ROM is now catching Doc's in the number of views and downloads - it's simply the best. Clean, easy and a 1-step install on version 7... unbelievable! (I've been using your stuff since version 4 off and on but have stayed with you since version 5.)

    This is the best ROM in terms of ease of use and stability. It is not the fastest in terms of the quadrant score but that is misleading for it has yet to crash, GPS working perfectly, very good battery life. (There is no need for me to improve the Quadrant score by installing another kernel; BLN does not provide enough functionality for me to want to install another kernel simply to get this feature as everything works harmoniously.)

    Doc's ROM has become too fiddly to install compared to your!

    Thank you and keep up the good work! (You've allowed me to wean my addiction to constantly updating my installed ROM with this version.)

    Have a Happy Holidays!
    jjjpppjjjppp --> Post
    After using this rom for two days, I am very impressed about how much power Darky has squeezed out of the rom, the processing power, smoothness and battery life are nothing but excellent, this killer rom leave no room for other roms! Well done Darky!

    A small tipp from me ;)

    // How to make the animations even smoother //

    > Open the App 'SpareParts'
    > Window Animations >> Very Slow
    > Transition Animations >> Very Slow

    This looks like butter! So smooth ;)

    Darky's v9.0.2 Extreme Edition


    >> Use the DarkyROM Configurator in the Market
    >> to customize the ROM


    >> If you encounter any issues, reflash the ROM!

    >> [Guide] Installation Guide for First Time Users
    >> [Guide] How to upgrade on Darky's ROM


    v9.0.2 is a major breakthrough in many cases.

    >> Introducing a new era of ROMs
    Darky's ROM v9.0.2 is here.
    I worked together with some very creative minds - let me present you Hristo "Ficeto" Gochkov, Andrea "DarkMan" D'Alessandro and Marco "Markoid" Barbera.

    Ficeto is responsible for the new Script Engine since v9.0.
    DarkMan & Markoid coded the DarkyROM Configurator in the Market.
    DarkMan is also the new hoster for - Thanks for this!

    So, before you start saying "Thanks darkyy", thank these awesome men.

    General Note
    Besides the usual bugfixes [we fixed almost every known bug] and new features [a lot of new ones, every single one is tested several times!], Ficeto created a whole new Script Engine, which allows you to customize the ROM before it gets flashed. Read below for the explaination & documentation.

    Completely New Script Engine [by Ficeto]
    The most important and cool part about this new script is that you need to download a single file and chose the way you want it installed and which applications you want included. Surely this will lead to many more goodies, which will include multi-device support, more kernel choices, more modem, themes and anything else you can think of. It’s a kitchen in a ROM :)

    How to customize the ROM before flashing
    First, open the Market and download the DarkyROM Configurator App. Open the App and select the packages you want installed. If you are currently on Darky’s ROM and you are wondering if you should wipe your phone, now it’s a good time :)
    >> v9.0 will clear any problems you might have left from 8.x or earlier.
    If you are already on Darky’s and you remove apps through options before a no-wipe flash, apps that are not in /system (fonts and third-party) will not be deleted.


    The ROM itself will decide if it will wipe or not.

    >> If you are NOT on Darky’s ROM, your data WILL BE WIPED, no matter what!
    >> If you ARE on Darky’s ROM, your data will NOT be wiped, unless you tick 'Wipe' in the Darky App.
    >> If you do NOT use any of the options bellow, ALL applications will be installed (just like the ROMs before)

    You don't have to use the Darky App to install the ROM. It's optional.


    // Introducing a new era of ROMs //

    Introducing Darky's Developer Crew
    >> Joël "Darkyy" Staub
    >> Hristo "Ficeto" Gochkov
    >> Andrea "DarkMan" D'Alessandro

    >> You can have a green circle battery instead of the Gingerbread Battery
    >> You can choose between multiple kernels - for now, we implemented the latest Voodoo 5.2 [default] and SpeedMod K12Q T4 500Hz [as an option for the GT-I9000 and default for the Captivate]
    >> Automatic Wipe / No-Wipe Detection
    >>>> if you are on Darky's ROM >> No-Wipe [will keep all apps, settings, SMS etc.]

    >> Multi-Battery Icon Support [Included Green Circle as an option >> with the Darky App]
    >> Multi-Bootanimation Support [Included Nexus S Gingerbread Boot as an option >> with the Darky App]
    >> Removing Apps you don't need [several packages to exclude, like Samsung Social Applications, Swype, Live Wallpapers, Extra Fonts, Third Party Apps (SGS Tools etc.)]
    >> Choosing the fixed Lockscreen Wallpaper which uses the Samsung Gallery [but drains more battery in some cases] or just keep the default >> No Lockscreen Wallpaper [but better battery life // MUCH better standby time]

    >> The ROM detects your current lagfix situation [it will keep it automatically]
    >> The ROM will create a new single install log for EVERYTHING >> /sdcard/Darky/install.log
    >> You can see everything in this log - if it wiped, detected devices, lagfixes on/off, mounted filesystems, copied apks, deleted directories etc.

    >> The ROM will automatically check if all the files are copied correctly and will note it in the install.log

    About my battery life:

    Previously I was on Darky's v5, with that the phone lasted 2-3 days with normal usage.

    After flashing to v7 (with 100% battery) I also got the fast drainage problem. Here is what I did:

    1) Turn OFF phone
    2) Charge till it says it is FULL
    3) Start in RECOVERY (volume UP+Home+Power), here WIPE battery stats (it is in the "advanced" menu)
    4) RESTART android (yes, it might already be on 98% or so)
    5) USE phone heavily. Don't worry if it drops too fast. Use it till the Android system turns OFF automatically (it happens when your battery is below 1% - for me the phone was on 1% for about 40 mins. This is where it heavily miscalculated ;)
    6) PLUG IN your charger, TURN ON android and wait till it is FULLY charged again. (It is better if you don't use the phone at this charging up)

    Now, after you disconnect the charger, you should still have 100% for some time (I've been using the phone for 32 mins - writing this post - and it is still on a hundred percent) and with this, I got back the 2-3 days battery life with normal usage.

    Also, you should set WiFi to: "Never when plugged in" and by default I disable Data Network. But my phone is using WiFi all the time so it doesn't really matter :)

    So to summerize this method, the key is to show the phone the battery's minimal capacity too, by using it till it is on null. Because with charging to 100% than wiping or flashing only introduces the maximum capacity to the system and the minimum is only guessed. THIS gives the faulty reportes and makes us think the phone drains too fast.

    Try this method, than feel free to share your results :)

    FAQ [updated for v5.5 by R64]

    Various information and other notes (like bugs)

    New FAQ for v5 Series!
    [completely made by R64]
    - updated 16.12.2010

    Questions like these are asked many, many times.

    I have made a small faq with the recent issues with JPU roms. I have found these questions and answers in this or other threads. Note that I haven't tested each fix or anwser because I don't have all these problems.

    Most people don't read faqs but these problems are asked soooo many times it is most likely your problem is listed here.

    I'm having weird issues and force closing apps like 3D Gallery.
    Try wiping the cache and dalvik cache. You can wipe these from the CWM menu. Just wipe them anyway to make sure this will not cause problems. Your cache and dalvik will be rebuild at next boot so it will take longer to boot the first time.
    Still doesn't work try to uninstall and reinstall it after wiping the dalvik and normal cache.
    And if it still doesn't work? Then follow the clean guide.

    I am having problems connecting to KIES
    This is a known issue with the JPU firmware. Fix is here: Or if you want to try, download and install a Terminal app from Market, and run the following commands:
    chmod 0777 /dev/usb_mtp_gadget

    I have problems mounting the sdcard on my pc, or it shows as a cddrive
    This is Fixed in V5.5. otherwise use this:
    If it you can acces it but can't write to it from your pc try to disable usb debugging

    Titanium backup doesn't work/ apps restored by it don't work
    This is a known issue, for fixes see this thread

    Battstatt and TJAM don't work
    Those apps won't run on JPU based roms. There is an update for it in the market today (16-12-10) which should fix it.

    I am getting errors when I try to install it or load cwm
    Make sure you are flashing cwm from recovery 2E and NOT 3E. If you get the signature verification failed error you are flashing from 3E. Also make sure you have all the lagfixes disabled and all tweaks disabled. And don't flash the rom from recovery 2E or 3E but from CWM.
    If you have a froyo rom with 3e you can install 2e by following this post:

    Apps that use the camera don't work anymore
    Fixed in V5.5. Otherwise Flash Voodoo 5 Advance:

    Launcher Pro is not saving my settings
    Fixed in V5.5. Otherwise use root explorer and delete /dbdata/databases/com.fede.launcher

    Can I flash other themes on this rom
    Yes you can BUT make sure that theme is made for JPU roms. Custom JPU themes so far all work. If it doesn't say it's for JPU ask the author if or look in the topic if it works. Note not all themes have the extended power menu, if you flash that theme you will lose the extended power menu.

    Can I flash custom kernels with this rom
    As long as that custom kernel supports JPU firmware it should work. These custom kernels are all new so bugs are to be expected. Read their posts/thread to know if there are issues.

    I can't apply a wallpaper for the lockscreen
    This option is for samsungs default lockscreen only. It does not work with the default AOSP lockscreen used in this rom.

    I have terrible battery life
    Charge your bettery to 100%, then reboot into cwm recovery and wipe the battery stats.
    If using wifi you can also adjust the wifi sleep policy to when screen turns off. under settings>wireless and networks>wifi settings>press menu button>advanced.

    When pressing powerbutton instead of getting the power menu phone crashes
    Did you flash a custom theme or battery icon mod? These can give this bug.
    To fix it restore your back-up. Don't have a back-up? Well learn from this to make back-ups. You can alsoe reflash the rom again.

    My phone seems stuck at boot with the glowing S logo
    If it is your first boot after flahsing it can take a really long time to boot, That will be normal afterwards. Even after flashing another theme the first boot can take ages. If something is wrong it will vibrate and eventually go black. Then reinstall the rom or use clean guide.


    Old FAQ & Bugs

    Version 4.1 - Bugs
    The Multi-Touch Keyboard force closes (crashes) when choosing it.

    Install the Multi-Touch Keyboard on the SD-Card.
    Instructions are in the first post.
    The keyboard will remain white ;)

    Version 3.0 - Bugs
    - Popup Menu has a graphical bug (thanks for everyone mentioning this) Thanks R64 for fixing!

    - The Market issue - Download unsuccessful - has NOTHING to do with this ROM.
    I can't download apps on my HTC Desire HD, too.
    It's the Market itself, just wait for Google to fix that.

    FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

    - CWM = ClockworkMod Recovery (mostly used to install new ROMs)
    - SGS = Samsung Galaxy S
    - lagfix = makes your Galaxy S fly!
    - ULF = Universal Lagfix (by sztupy, integrated in SpeedMod)
    - ULK = Universal Lagfix Kernel (the same as ULF)
    - Firmware = Base System of our Galaxy S (provided by Samsung)
    - Circle Battery Mod = shows your battery in 1% steps
    - FC = Force Close (Crash of an App / Component)
    - BLN = Backlight Notifications

    - more defintions to come, just ask them in the thread ;)

    I'm coming from an Eclair (2.1) Firmware, can I flash this ROM?
    Sure, just follow the instructions above.
    Just download CWM & your desired ROM, enter CWM and install the ROM.

    I'm coming from a Froyo (2.2) Firmware, can I flash this ROM?
    As long as you've got Recovery 2e installed, yes.
    Check the link here (--> CF-Root by ChainFire installs Recovery 2e)

    I flashed the SpeedMod Version but my Galaxy S is slow & stuttering, why?
    You need to "ACTIVATE" a lagfix from the CWM first. To do so, check the installation instructions above.

    Here's a guide by rajeeva for fixing the Droid X Keyboard correctly.
    This is a right proper guide, I used adb shell with su permission.

    1. Goto /sdcard/Multi-Touch Keyboard/x2keyboardblack.apk and rename to DroidX_KeyboardGreen.apk and copy it to root of sdcard

    cd sdcard/Multi-Touch\ Keyboard
    mv x2keyboardblack.apk /sdcard/DroidX_KeyboardGreen.apk

    2. Then goto /system/app/ and copy DroidX_KeyboardGreen.apk to sdcard as a backup just in case.

    cd /system/app/
    cp -i DroidX_KeyboardGreen.apk /sdcard/DroidX_KeyboardGreenBk.apk

    3. Then copy your DroidX_KeyboardGreen.apk in root of sdcard to system/app
    cd sdcard and give permission

    cp -i DroidX_KeyboardGreen.apk /system/app/
    chmod 644 DroidX_KeyboardGreen.apk

    4. Reboot your phone and goto settings -> Locale and Text
    Press Choose Input Method and check "Droid2Keyboard German Black"


    If I installed v4.1 and want to have the stock Samsung look is it still possible to apply this patch "Remove Darky's Raw Steel Edition v2.2 Theme @MultiUpload" on the first post?
    No, don't do that. It will cause your phone not booting up anymore or getting Force Closes everywhere.

    Is there an Unthemed v4.1?
    Just use v4.0, the differences aren't that much, that you'll notice anything.
    I recommend a "Wipe data/factory reset" in CWM before installing v4.0.

    What's the difference between v4.0 & v4.1?
    v4.0 doesn't delete your Apps when installing it over anything else.
    v4.1 is more secure to install and will delete your previous Apps.
    v4.1 SpeedMod has the newest K1 Kernel 300 Hz, v4.0 has the I.1.1 Stable.
    v4.1 SpeedMod has the BLN App integrated by default, v4.0 does not.

    I just flashed Version 4.1 (SpeedMod or Voodoo), and the baseband is XXJPM not JPO (Settings/About Phone -> Baseband) Is this a bug?
    No, that's normal.
    I mixed the JPO Version with the JPM modem because I got better GPS results with it ;)

    How can I enable the Weather Widget from the Homescreen as in the screenshots?
    This is a paid app in the Market: Beautiful Widgets
    I included a Steel Clock which goes perfectly with the whole Steel Design.
    Just switch the skin when you are configuring Beautiful Widgets.

    Where can I download Eclair? And can I flash it with CWM?
    Just head over here and follow the instructions there or here at XDA how to use Odin.
    You can't flash a stock Eclair Firmware with CWM.

    When I flash the SpeedMod v4.1, is the K1 Kernel 300 Hz included by default, or do I have to flash it myself? I ask this because you have a seperate link for the Kernel and the ROM.
    No additional steps needed.
    Just install the SpeedMod v4.1 and you will have the K1 Kernel 300 Hz automatically included.
    I posted the link for the Kernel for people who want to install the K1 kernel over the Voodoo Version. They can just flash this file over CWM.

    When using the SpeedMod Version, can I flash other ROMs with a kernel which has an integrated CWM - without flashing to Eclair first?
    If you installed the SpeedMod Version successfully, you can flash other CWM Kernels & ROMs without any additional steps

    I get an error when flashing this ROM!
    Did you disable any previous lagfixes?
    If you didn't you have to reflash an Eclair Firmware with Odin first.
    When in Odin, choose Re-Partition & choose the 512 pit file.
    I recommend JM8 for flashing, because this includes some important *.rfs files which will prevent any errors when installing my ROM.

    How do I disable the Voodoo lagfix?
    Just use any file explorer to do that.
    For example, use "My Files" and create a folder called "Voodoo" (without quotes) on your internal /sdcard. If the folder already exists, skip this step.
    In this Voodoo folder (/sdcard/Voodoo) you need to create another empty folder called "disable lagfix" (without quotes).

    I'm already on your ROM vX.X, can I flash to the newest ROM without losing any data?
    In v4.0, your apps won't be deleted. I recommend a "Wipe data/factory reset" in CWM before installing v4.0.
    In v4.1, I changed the way the ROM handles your previous data, because there are too many people who had problems with it.
    v4.1 will DELETE your previous data/apps completely.
    However, this ROM will NEVER touch your SD-Card(s).

    SpeedMod Version: Is ext4 better than JFS?
    JFS is experimental.
    I really recommend ext4.
    In the end, it's your choice & phone.

    Is this ROM based on Doc's ROM?
    No, I rebuilded the whole ROM to get rid off his base.

    How can I use the Backlight Notifications?
    You need the SpeedMod Version for this.

    In v4.1 SpeedMod, everything is already prepared to use.
    In v4.0 SpeedMod, you need to download the App "Backlight Notifications" first.

    Just activate the BLN in the CWM (Recovery Mode, see instructions in first post).
    Then open the App called "Backlight Notifications" and configure it for your needs.
    Tested & confirmed working.

    How can I get better battery life?
    Froyo Firmwares have worse battery life than Eclair Firmwares.
    The battery life is something beyond the control of the Dev's.
    The Firmware (from Samsung) is responsible for the battery performance.
    I hope Samsung takes a note of this and works on it.

    Some tips on how to improve the battery life:
    - Deactivate Wifi when you don't need it.
    - Use 2G (GSM) Network mode only.
    - Deactivate the mobile internet connection when you don't need it (long press the Power Button, then turn off Mobile Data).
    - Disable the Automatic Sync (Push), when you don't need it.
    - Turn the screen brightness lower (I always leave it on Auto and get great battery results).
    - Switch into flight mode, when you start playing a game or CPU/GPU intensive application.
    - Disable the Auto Rotation (in the Notification Bar).
    This won't stop the sensor in Games etc.
    - Use the App SuperPower by ChainFire and try to find your best combination.

    Allgemeine Bugs
    - Das Market Problem - Download fehlgeschlagen - hat NICHTS mit diesem ROM zu tun.
    Auf meinem HTC Desire HD habe ich manchmal das selbe Problem.
    Das Problem liegt beim Market selber, wir müssen einfach warten bis Google das repariert hat.

    FAQ (Häufig gestellte Fragen)

    Erklärungen & Abkürzungen:
    - CWM = ClockworkMod Recovery (wird meist benutzt, um ROMs zu installieren)
    - SGS = Samsung Galaxy S
    - lagfix = macht das Galaxy S rasend schnell!
    - ULF = Universal Lagfix (von sztupy, integriert in der SpeedMod Version)
    - ULK = Universal Lagfix Kernel (das Gleiche wie ULF)
    - Firmware = Grundsystem des Galaxy S (von Samsung)
    - Circle Battery Mod = Zeigt die Battery in 1% Schritten
    - FC = Force Close (Absturz eines Apps)
    - BLN = Backlight Notifications (die Tasten leuchten beim SGS, wenn eine Nachricht da ist)

    - Mehr Erklärungen & Abkürzugen kommen bald, einfach Fragen stellen im Thread ;)

    Ich komme von einer Eclair (2.1) Firmware, kann ich dieses ROM flashen?
    Sicher, folge einfach der Anleitung im ersten Post.
    Lade einfach CWM & das gewünschte ROM herunter, gehe in das CWM und installiere das ROM.

    Ich komme von einer Froyo (2.2) Firmware, kann ich dieses ROM flashen?
    Solange du das Recovery 2e installiert hast, ja.
    Folge diesem Link hier --> (--> CF-Root von ChainFire installiert das Recovery 2e)

    Ich habe die SpeedMod Version installiert, aber mein Galaxy S ist langsam und ruckelt, warum das?
    Du musst zuerst einen Lagfix von dem CWM aus aktivieren.
    Folge einfach der Anleitung im ersten Post.

    Ich habe die v4.1 installiert und möchte den Samsung Standard Look haben.
    Ist es möglich, diesen "Entferne Darky's Raw Steel Edition v2.2 Theme @MultiUpload" im ersten Post zu benutzen?

    Nein, das ist nicht möglich, da die Dateien inkompatibel sind.
    Das SGS wird nicht mehr starten.

    Gibt es eine v4.1 ohne das Stahl Design?
    Benutze einfach die v4.0, die Differenz ist nicht so gross, dass du etwas merkst.
    Ich empfehle einen "Wipe data/factory reset" im CWM, bevor du die v4.0 installierst.

    Was ist der Unterschied zwischen v4.0 & v4.1?
    v4.0 löscht deine Apps nicht, wenn du es über etwas anderes installierst.
    v4.1 ist sicherer zum Installieren, da es alles vorher löscht & "reinigt".
    v4.1 SpeedMod hat den allerneusten K1 Kernel 300 Hz, v4.0 hat den I1.1 Stable.
    v4.1 SpeedMod hat die BLN App standardmässig installiert, v4.0 nicht.

    Ich habe die Version 4.1 (SpeedMod oder Voodoo) installiert, aber die Modemfirmware Version zeigt XXJPM und nicht JPO (Einstellungen --> Telefoninfo --> Modemfirmware) Ist das ein Fehler?
    Nein, das ist normal.
    Ich habe die JPO Version mit dem JPM Modem gemischt, da JPO viel bessere GPS-Performance bringt.

    Wie kann ich das Wetter Widget wie im Screenshot bekommen?
    Das ist ein kostenpflichtiges App im Market: Beautiful Widgets
    Ich habe im ROM eine Stahl Uhr eingebaut, welche perfekt zum Rest des Designs passt.
    Wähle einfach "Elegant Steel" in Beautiful Widgets.

    Wo kann ich Eclair downloaden? Kann ich das mit CWM flashen?
    Einfach hier entlang oder hier bei eine foreninterne Anleitung anschauen.
    Du kannst keine Standard Eclair Firmware mit CWM installieren.

    Wenn ich SpeedMod v4.1 installiere, ist der K1 Kernel 300 Hz schon vorinstalliert?
    Ich frage das, weil bei den Download Links der K1 Kernel noch seperat erwähnt wurde.

    Keine zusätzlichen Schritte notwendig.
    Einfach SpeedMod v4.1 installieren und dann ist der allerneuste K1 Kernel 300 Hz automatisch integriert.
    Ich habe den Link für den K1 Kernel 300 Hz nur angehängt, damit man von der Voodoo Version wechseln kann.
    Einfach die .zip Datei mit CWM installieren.

    Wenn ich die SpeedMod Version benutze, kann ich dann andere ROMs mit einem Kernel, der CWM integriert hat, flashen - ohne dass ich zuerst auf Eclair muss?
    Wenn du die SpeedMod Version erfolgreich installiert hast, kannst du jedes andere CWM ROM / Kernel ohne zusätzliche Schritte flashen.

    Ich bekomme einen / mehrere Fehler wenn ich dieses ROM installieren will!
    Hast du alle vorherigen Lagfixes deaktiviert?
    Wenn du das nicht gemacht hast, musst du zuerst eine Eclair Firmware mit Odin flashen.
    Wenn du in Odin bist, wähle Re-Partition und wähle die 512 pit Datei.
    Ich empfehle JM8 zum Flashen, da diese einige wichtige .rfs Dateien beinhaltet, welche viele Fehler vermeidet, wenn man mein ROM installieren will.

    Wie deaktiviere ich den Voodoo lagfix?
    Du kannst einfach irgendeinen Dateiexplorer für das benutzen.
    Nimm zum Beispiel "Eigene Dateien" und erstelle einen Ordner mit dem Namen "Voodoo" (ohne Anführungszeichen) auf deinem internen Speicher (/sdcard). Wenn der Ordner bereits existiert, überspringe diesen Schritt.
    In diesem Voodoo Ordner (/sdcard/Voodoo) erstellst du jetzt nochmals einen leeren Ordner mit dem Namen "disable lagfix" (ohne Anführungszeichen).
    Dann neu starten und warten bis die /data Partition wieder umkonvertiert wird.

    Ich habe schon dein ROM vX.X installiert, kann ich auf dein neustes ROM updaten ohne alle Daten zu verlieren?
    In v4.0 werden deine Apps nicht gelöscht. Ich empfehle einen "Wipe data/factory reset" im CWM, bevor du die v4.0 installierst.
    v4.1 ist sicherer zum Installieren, da es alles vorher löscht & "reinigt". Einige Leute hatten Probleme mit v4.0, darum diese Entscheidung.
    v4.1 wird all deine Apps etc. komplett löschen.
    Dein interner Speicher wird NIEMALS vom ROM angefasst.

    SpeedMod Version: Ist ext4 besser als JFS?
    JFS ist noch experimental, also in der Beta-Phase.
    Ich empfehle ext4.
    Schlussendlich ist es deine Wahl & dein SGS.

    Basiert dieses ROM auf Doc's ROM?
    Nein, ich habe extra das ganze ROM neu gebaut, um seine Basis wegzuwerfen.

    Wie kann ich die Backlight Notifications nutzen?
    Du brauchst die SpeedMod Version für das.

    In v4.1 SpeedMod ist alles schon vorbereitet.
    In v4.0 SpeedMod musst du das App "Backlight Notifications" zuerst herunterladen.

    Du musst einfach die BLN im CWM aktivieren (siehe Anleitung im ersten Post).
    Dann öffnest du das App "Backlight Notifications" und konfigurierst es nach deinen Wünschen.
    Getestet und bestätigt, dass es funktioniert.

    Wie kriege ich eine bessere Akkulaufzeit?
    Froyo Firmwares haben von Grund auf eine schlechtere Akkulaufzeit als Eclair Firmwares.
    Die Akkulaufzeit ist etwas, was die Dev's nicht beeinflussen können.
    Die Firmware von Samsung ist für die Akkulaufzeit verantwortlich.
    Ich hoffe, Samsung nimmt das ernst und arbeitet daran.

    Einige Tipps wie man die Akkulaufzeit erheblich verlängert:

    - Deaktiviere WiFi wenn du es nicht brauchst.
    - Benutze das 2G (GSM) Netzwerk.
    - Deaktiviere die mobile Internetverbindung, wenn du sie nicht brauchst (drücke lange auf den Anschalt / Power Button, schalte dann das mobile Netzwerk aus).
    - Deaktiviere die Automatische Synchronisierung (Push) wenn du diese nicht brauchst.
    - Verringere die Bildschirmhelligkeit (Ich habe diese immer auf "Automatisch" und habe eine sehr gute Akkulaufzeit).
    - Aktiviere den Flugmodus, wenn du anfängst CPU/GPU intensive Apps wie Games lädst.
    - Deaktivere die Automatische Rotation (in der Benachrichtungsleiste).
    Dies wird den Sensor in Games etc. nicht stoppen.
    - Benutze das App SuperPower von ChainFire und finde deine eigene Kombination.
