F.A.Q :

Q - Why you mustn't quote the hole post ?
A - As you are killing us dude !

Q - Why mustn't I ask for ETA ?
A - Simply , we are students and colleges so we are busy with our studying and other life problems !

Q - Why mustn't you Spam ?
A -As Organization Is the key to achieve the impossible !

Q - I have faced some issues, which is not mentioned in the 'Not Working' list........?
A - For bug reports, the least we can expect from you is a logcat taken during the issue. Or atleast, you could tell us how and when did you face the bug, how can we reproduce the bug to fix it. Reports without any of these will be ignored.

Q - Can I use your ROM/any part of ROM and modify it and release it separately?
A - Yes you can. But please mention proper credits.

Q - I flashed this ROM, but I dont find any Google App, where can I find it?
A - gapps will be mentioned later in OP but you can get them from any where and flash it !

Bug reporting
How to report a bug?

  • First off all, check the 'not working' list and see if the bug you are facing is already mentioned or not. If it is, stop right away because the concerned people working on the ROM are aware of the issue.
  • If the bug/issue is not mentioned in 'not working' list, check the Frequently Asked Question (F.A.Q) and see if issue is resolved already.
  • If the issue you face is not in FAQ either, you would probably post a reply in this forum, and not PM anyone, about the bug.
    • Attach a logcat.
    • If not possible, mention a proper way how you encountered the bug.
    • Also mention any 3rd party stuff you installed. (Like mods, themes, kernels etc)
Following things WILL NOT be considered as bugs. So please do not post such bug reports, they will be ignored.
  • Low benchmark scores. Even if Stock results better.
  • Poor performance in gaming. Even if Stock results better.
  • High RAM usage/low RAM available.
  • Various kernel control app crashes.
  • Crashes of various UI elements when a custom theme/mod is applied.
  • Random reboots, and other issues caused by flashing custom kernel.

For who wants to help me fixing bugs or want to build SlimKat

For who wants to help me fixing bugs or want to build SlimKat :

First of all you should know that patches/hacks of CM11 won't work with this ROM so we need to start fix all bugs from the beginning .

In order to start building this ROM you should clone the trees provided in main post .

You should use java6 and make3.81/2 to build SlimKat without errors .

Known issues while building :
  • "sec_format.h no such file or directory" --->As the file Isn't already exist in the source so download file in attachments and put it in frameworks/av/media/libstagefright .
  • "font_7x16.h no such file or directory" --->As the file Isn't already exist in the source so download file in attachments and put it in bootable/recovery/minui .
  • "no rule to make target vendor/slim/prebuilt/common/bootanimation/.zip needed by out/target/product/mint2g/system/media/bootanimation.zip" ---> that's because Slim uses prebuilt bootanimation and doesn't build it while building system and it should copy the specified bootanimation which is convenient for device resolution but there's an error with that so all you need is to go to "vendor/slim/prebuilt/common/bootanimation/" and copy "480.zip" file and paste it in in the same directory and change its name to ".zip" .
  • If you used the RIL source in the tree you will get building errors "can't locate symbol" so I removed it from the tree for now !
If You came into any other problem post here in the topic and we will try to help :good:

Well.
Handling 2 projects.
Wat about the positions of projects.
I mean that which one was going to finished??.
Cm12.1 mostly fixed just hwr left about which I can't make a clear prediction ! and for this ROM I think fixing things will be more easier because HWR Is already works and for RIL I should just Implement the fixes from cm11 to this ROM and with a little more organization everything will work fine !
So I think this ROM will be finished faster depending on how much free time I get !

Note : sensors are fixed now !

@LahKeda
I tried alpha 2 and didn't saw any mobile network.
I couldn't even install terminal as system freezed 5 times in 5 mins.
Do i need 2 enable sims from somewhere?
(So,RIL problem still exists)
Dual SIM ?

I have a single SIM and it works .
Note : I've figured out what is the problem with video recording and will try to fix it .

PS : Please guys chill out and keep fighting and wars out of XDA . @Razvan please do your job here .

@LahKeda
Any news?
(anything about system freezing)
I've figured out what is the problem which is that a return in matroska decoder not = 0 which make system crashes .
I'd disabled the check function and system freezing went away but camera didn't work and got some random reboots as a result of null pointer - maybe something related to the function I disabled - .
Anyway I'll see where is the problem come from . and good thing I've found something related to video recording issue so we may get a build soon . also Reboot to recovery working .
