FireWalkerX Pure 1.0.55
------------------------------------


This rom is based on CM10 latest with my own optimizations

Feature List:
------------------
* Optimisations for better battery life
* OTA app for updates (Supports partial updates)
* BurningX Version 1.0 Kernel based on Siyah kernel (siyah and others based on it does not support OTA!)
* Gestures - 8 different gestures currently build in - see this thread
* Supports extweaks from version 1.0.33-hotfix
* Bluetooth Stereo supported

Download the file FWXPure-x.x.xx-NOGAPPS-signed.zip and gapps-jb-signed.zip and flash both
dont worry, if you forget to download the gapps zip, OTA will have it as an update.

Update: there is a minor glitch in the ast part, sometimes it will do the last patch, sometimes you have to do it by hand (its easy, your allready in recovery mode, just select
install zip, then zip from internal sdcard look inside OTA-Updater/download/firewalkerx-pure-1.0.40.zip :) fix is coming when i can figure out why it doesnt work on the last
when it works on gapps, there is no kernel update in gapps... strange...

adding features and mods that i find worth putting in

Pictures coming (for now, imagine CM10, since nothing has been changed on the UI yet)

Big thanks to:

i will post OTA Updates when bugs are fixed, or new features are added.

Im going to split it into to branches in the next release:
* Stable for those who wants updates once in a while
* Unstable for those who wants to live on the edge.

Default version posted to OTA will be stable, to go to the unstable branch,
all you will have to do is download the unstable-branch.zip after installing version 1.0.55 and zip it in recovery it will be small.
then you will be on the unstable OTA.

(Version explanation: major.minor.buildnumber)

Changelog:
Code:
1.0.55:

* Updated OTAUpdater.apk

* stable and unstable branches

---------
* Supports partial updates.
* BurningX 1.0 Updated with Siyah 4.1 sources (BurningX does not support dualboot)
* Bluetooth stereo working.
* based on 10.0.0-RC0 sources.
* Different installation procedure regarding GAPPS.

---------
* hotfix for extweaks support. Available from my dropbox link down below.

* toggle bluetooth; 
* toggle WiFi; 
* play/pause; 
* simulate power button (save the physical button);

Might give this a try, finally managed to get a stable-ish battery using the latest Siyah Kernel.

Hi firewalker,

moved to your rom. Thx!!!! I like the ota idea.
One question so far: your battery optimizations are kernel related ? Cause maybe will change to latest syiah ?

im experimenting with the ]dorimanx kernel right now, so i might push that one out instead of the one included with a new update within a few days...
after some consideration, ive come to the conclusion that ill go for siyah instead...
it will be included in the next ota, tomorrow or friday...

I have postponed the use of siyah, and siyah based kernels, i need to figure out why applying OTA triggers samsungs 3e recovery instead of the cwm based recovery, which makes it imposible to apply OTA patch automatically...

I understand ! ! But i flashed latest syiah (4.1rc1) for now without problems.
Bettery seems good. If ota works we will see after you`ve posted a new update. Will try by ota!

Day 2 day usage works quite well on siyah. Only problem is the automated appliance of OTA which doesn't work because all siyah based kernels include samsungs own OTA updater which only accepts Samsung signed packages

After using your rom for more than a day now i have to say job well done sir.
Im a fan of Dorimanx kernel but something went wrong from version .63 onwards. its had the perfect balance between performence and battery life (for my personal usage of course), But, Since i gotta keep on flashing, i flashed GMs latest siyah and must say its running pretty well, sad bout the OTA packages have to be signed by Samsung, oh well, we cant have it all, can we? :)
