Description


Vanilla RootBox is built straight from RootBox sources and always carries a very light installation with no extra/useless apps. This means, you can enjoy a pure Android experience combined with AOKP/CM features and some CM cherry-picks. Keep in mind Jelly Bean is only at the beginning stage of development and there will be minor bugs. Every RootBox releases are stable and always up to the challenge for a daily usage. If you're wondering how this ROM differs from any other AOKP roms out there, I only have one thing to say: Try it yourself and choose the one that meets your requirements.

Contribute to RootBox


Those interested in making wallpapers and bootanimation for RootBox, send an email to [email protected] with the following:


Information
  • Name
  • Email

Wallpapers
  • Attach wallpaper in email
  • Two sizes are required: HDPI and XHDPI

I'll review them and add the wallpapers in the next release. I will also choose the best one as the default wallpaper for official releases.

Bootanimation
  • Attach bootanimation or paste download link in the email.
  • Two sizes are required: HDPI and XHDPI

Wallpaper Resolution
  • HDPI: 960 x 800
  • XHDPI: 1440 x 1280

You can also contribute by creating icons for settings. Use proper sizes and always include compatibility for HDPI and XHDPI.

The reason behind this is very simple. I'm always busy and I've neglected the visual aspect of RootBox for a while now. It's time to polish it with new visuals!



How to Build RootBox from Source


Getting started

I will assume that you have some kind of knowledge with Linux and how to use a terminal. I will also assume that you have already setup all the android building requirements. First, you must create your working folder and initialize a repository with RootBox sources. The following steps will guide you in creating this working folder where you will be able to build RootBox.

You should now open a terminal (By default you should be in your home folder: /home/yourusername/)


Step 1: Let's create a folder in your home directory named RootBox. This will be referred as your working folder.

Code:
~$ mkdir RootBox


Step 2: Let's change our directory to the new RootBox folder we just created.

Code:
~$ cd RootBox


Step 3: Now that we are in our working folder (RootBox), we will initialize our RootBox repository by entering the following command:

Code:
~$ repo init -u git://github.com/Root-Box/platform_manifest.git -b jb-mr1


Step 4: It's now time to sync RootBox sources which could vary from a few minutes to a few hours depending on your internet connection.

Code:
~$ repo sync


Building Vanilla RootBox

Now that you have synced the sources, you're ready to build RootBox.

You can run the following build script:

Code:
~$ . build_rootbox.sh -device- -sync- -thread- -clean-

  • Device: Choose between the following supported devices: i9100, i9100g, i9300, d2att, d2tmo, d2vzw, mako and grouper.
  • Sync: Will sync latest RootBox sources before building
  • Threads: Allows to choose a number of threads for syncing and building operation.
  • Clean: Will remove the entire out folder and start a clean build. (Use this at your discretion)

Examples:

1) Sync sources and Build RootBox for GT-I9100 with 12 threads

Code:
~$ . build_rootbox.sh i9100 sync 12

2) Don't sync sources, clean out folder and build RootBox for GT-I9300 with 6 threads

Code:
~$ . build_rootbox.sh i9300 nosync 6 clean

3) Don't sync sources, clean out folder and build RootBox for SGH-I747 with 4 threads

Code:
~$ . build_rootbox.sh d2att nosync 4 clean

4) Sync sources, clean out folder and build RootBox for Nexus 4 with 5 threads

Code:
~$ . build_rootbox.sh mako sync 5 clean

This script will make a signed flashable zip file located in out/target/product/-device-/RootBox-JB-(Device)-Nightly-(Date).zip

By the way, I currently own a d2att and I do not have the Nexus 4 "YET" (will eventually get one soon). So some kind of feedback would be appreciated in order for me to fix things.

First to download from goo.im ;) will report if it work or not

Edit* boots up just fine, feels silky smooth so far. Will test the next couple of days and report on performance and battery.

    Building Vanilla RootBox

    Now that you have synced the sources, you're ready to build RootBox.

    You can run the following build script:

    Code:
    ~$ . build_rootbox.sh -device- -sync- -thread- -clean-

    • Device: Choose between the following supported devices: i9100, i9100g, i9300, d2att, d2tmo, d2vzw, mako and grouper.
    • Sync: Will sync latest RootBox sources before building

    • Clean: Will remove the entire out folder and start a clean build. (Use this at your discretion)

    Examples:

    1) Sync sources and Build RootBox for GT-I9100 with 12 threads

    Code:
    ~$ . build_rootbox.sh i9100 sync 12

    2) Don't sync sources, clean out folder and build RootBox for GT-I9300 with 6 threads

    Code:
    ~$ . build_rootbox.sh i9300 nosync 6 clean

    3) Don't sync sources, clean out folder and build RootBox for SGH-I747 with 4 threads

    Code:
    ~$ . build_rootbox.sh d2att nosync 4 clean

    4) Sync sources, clean out folder and build RootBox for Nexus 4 with 5 threads

    Code:
    ~$ . build_rootbox.sh mako sync 5 clean

    This script will make a signed flashable zip file located in out/target/product/-device-/RootBox-JB-(Device)-Nightly-(Date).zip

    I'm not upset at all, I'm just laughing at all this. You guys are pretty desperate to flash anything on your phones. JellyBam was initially a complete kang of Rootbox and then kanged PAC rom. That rom has changed its base so many times that you can't even tell what it's based from. You guys can talk about any rom you want in here, but smart users will know where the real work is being done. Btw, my exams should be done by the end of this month, so development should return to its normal pace afterwards. For those who think that Rootbox is not being updated, then you're simply being ignorant because I update RB sources almost everyday.

    New Feature : Breathing SMS notification

    Thanks to Kroz for the amazing idea and icons.

    What does it do: Instead of having an static icon for SMS notifications in statusbar, this feature will make the icon fade in/out giving it a breathing effect.
