My new rom Glazed ICS is out so go and grab it and ENJOY. This rom will no longer be recieving features in fact i will be taking away useless stuf to make this a bareboned rom.

GLAZED ROM

Updated 6-7-2012 Scroll Down For Changelog. Scroll down for installing not included gapps (Like talk).

Hello Forum i would like to introduce a new rom called Simple CM9. As you can tell by the name this rom is special since it does not have all the useless items that most roms have. This rom is Sweet and To The Point. This is my first rom ever so give me a break if its bad. (Hope its not). I made this rom because i really enjoyed Takenover83 original cm7 bareboned rom, so i decided to make a ICS one, also because some people were requesting it in the original thread. Anyways enjoy your SPEEDY KINDLE.

Will do as soon as i get home later.

do gameloft's games install in this rom? like gt racing, asphalt...
Whats weird is the graphics intense games like modern combat and ashpalt 6 work but other free gameloft games don't work. Ill see what i can do.

Put the following line in your build.prop

persist.sys.usb.config=mass_storage,adb

And the USB will work without having to go to Settings ;)
Thanks will update the rom later on.

It should be noted that this was recently added to the default prop in the kfire android (Hashcode's)
https://github.com/KFire-Android/device-amazon-otter/commit/3c69448cf98749305051be89fd3ea3562e19d95b

Should be the default behavior for most soon.

OP; always nice to see a stripped version, grats on the first release.

hey Hyperrunner,

Since nobody has reported any issues I assume it's a non-issue (at least with TWRP).

However, naming your ROM zip "Simple CM9.zip" with a space in the filename seems a little dangerous to me. You never know if all recoveries can handle spaces in filenames.

Huge fan of barebone type ROMs (esp. of the CM variety), so I loaded this one.

My System partition went from 244MB to 171MB. Bootup time for my KF went from 58 secs down to 35 secs.

Everything appears to be running smoothly ... not even a single hiccup to this point. Not much of a gamer, so I cannot comment on that aspect.

Was running the Vanilla CM9 ROM before this, so time and size comparisons are between that and this ROM. I also found the Vanilla CM9 to be very smooth in operation.

So far, it seems like the dev did an excellent job on this. Thanks, Hyperrunner.

Thanks for the notice will update that later on.
Also there are no problems for CWM since I tested it.

Sblood86,

Does this even work?

I might be missing something but I remember trying this with persist.adb.notify and putting it in default.prop and didn't work. I needed to have this property in build.prop to get it to work (so i ultimately put it in system.prop).

So to test I just did a full wipe and installed the latest vanilla rom.
However, in order to see the kindle as an usb drive I needed to go to Settings -> Storage and enable mass storage.

It seems it needs to be in build.prop...

Yes. It works tested it but still need to fix a few things before a new upload. Probably tommorow.

It works if persist.sys.usb.config is set in build.prop. But it does not work if it is just set in default.prop when building from source.

Seems like the code that gemedis posted earlier had adb enabled and kept the device from properly mounting. Got it all resolved though "persist.sys.usb.config=mass_storage" goes into the build prop.

    Since this is a fairly new release will there be any changes /updates say within the day or the next? If so I'll wait till then to try but so far everything looks and sounds great but yes as the other mentioned barebacked doesn't equal bareboned.

    Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using XDA Premium HD app

    The last update that came out today fixed most of the bugs. I would flash now since i fixed them today. Anyways you can just reflash a new rom over this one. As i know of. The only bug is the 15 Seconds pitch black bootup but that is being fixed will release in a week or so when i have more things to update. Wow i barely noticed my mistake thanks.

    Why did you take out Google Talk? AFAIK it cannot be installed via an apk. is there a way you could make a zip that would put it back for people who wanted it? I kinda also wanted the voice search, but I can live without it.

    Otherwise A+ great rom, glad to see ICS on this device!

    Just google "google apps" and download the latest ics version and flash that. You should get all the google apps missing.

    Sometimes an early write to backlight/brightness can fix early blank screen start-up issues (put the below somewhere near the top of init.rc or init.omap4430.rc):

    write /sys/class/leds/lcd-backlight/brightness 127

    I cant seem to find either of these two files?

    It seems like I can only mount storage via usb if usb debugging is off? Is this normal?

    Since the latest update "June 4th" i fixed this since i took off that option by default. So it should properly mount.

    I really dont know since the progress takes abunch of photoshop editing. I will surely try so dont go to sleep just yet.

    Hi Hypperrunner, I just wanted to ask what's the difference between this and the Vanilla and now since you added the SGT7 options how does it differ from it too? I am really looking for a ROM that will offer better battery life.

    Well the difference is features and usability. I try to make my rom really fast and have features that normal roms would without wasting to much of the devices resources. I think that this rom would have a bit better life because it doesnt have the live wallpapers and all the other things that were removed to be using up the memory and the battery when its locked or just using the device. Also another difference is that it features both of its main options such as customizing the status bar and lockscreen and it all is made into a simple package that is less than 100 mb. You can go check out other roms and see the size of them such as gederom is 140+ mb and all those extra bits and peaces really do matter to the battery life and performance of the device.

    Thanks guys for your support. I will update this as soon as i find some time to do it.
