Hey guys, after playing around a little, I managed to compile PA for the i9300! Anyway, I don't have any changelog as such

Story:

At first I'd successfully managed PA to officially support the i9300, but since the developer who replaced me would really listen to anybody and continued building with Nameless sources, which led to seriously messed up builds, which in turn made PA drop support for i9300, I decided to step in and provide unofficial support for the i9300 (Again). So enjoy!


Features:
Theme Engine (Not available in 5.1 Alpha 1, available in the newer build)

Bugs:
Video Playback

Android File Host
Basketbuild

Now Basketbuild :D

Thanks to:
The awesome PA team!

Thanks!
but i think that i will wait for it to be more in development.
The wake up from home butten, and probably other things as this is an alpha version.
BUT, as always, its good to see roms for our device. keep up the good work.
will definitely try this out when it go on a little.

It is happening!!! I know this day would come!! Love PA, downloading now. I'll post my experience later on! Thank you, so far.

Edit 24/02/2014 12:19 GMT -4 (Almost 48 hours after flash)
I've flashed it together with Boeffla-Kernel NG CM12, SuperSu Update 2.45, and Micro PA Gapps. Wifi works, Mobile Data, Camera and GPS either. I've not tested anything else. Only bug found is that TRIM is not working, but I dont know the future implications of it.
It is good for daily use, but some apps, as Mozilla Firefox and Facebook present FCs...

Edit 1 (22/02/2014 - 18:58 GMT -4)
I've just flashed it, together with Boeffla-Kernel NG CM12, SuperSu Update 2.45, and Stock PA Gapps. It is very laggy. Don't know if it is only me, or is normal. Any help would be appreciated.
Aside from it, Wifi works, Mobile Data and GPS either. I've not tested anything else.

Edit 2 (22/02/2014 - 21:09 GMT -4)
New clean flash, using the same kernel, SuperSu, but with the Nano-Gapps, seems to have improved performance. Only bug found is that TRIM is not working, wich may cause future problems, as slowdowns, lags and crashes. Camera is buggy, as always.

Were you able to use TRIM in your previous ROMs? I use Micro gapps with Boeffla NG and it works great for me :)

I'll try and post screenshots ASAP.

I am curious.
Why did you choose to use the boeffla defconfig to build the kernel? Why not use the cm12/nameless/omni/slim stock kernels?
That would probably make the rom boot with stock kernel. Users who want boeffla can simply flash over the kernel aftwerwards, which they have to do now as well

I shall try recompiling with CM kernel.

    Hey guys, apparently the AOSPAL team has dropped support for the i9300 because the maintainer was dense enough to not use CM trees and kernel source to build (he was using Nameless source) which created a lot of problems (ie- boot problems).

    I'll try building when I can :D

    Probably best to wait for Gokulbalram 's next build with a fixed kernel. Give the man some time eh.

    I'm building right now :D

    Let's hope it doesn't give any errors and boots properly *fingers crossed*
