FAQ / Screenshots

AOSP Theme:

COMING SOON


FAQ:

Q: The AOSP lock screen vibration toggle isn't working? How can I have the AOSP lock screen vibration and NO soft key hepatic feedback?
A: To have the AOSP lock screen vibration toggle function properly a couple of things need to be set correctly in settings. 1) make sure if you have the "power Saving" toggle on that you UN-check the "Turn off haptic feedback" toggle. Then go into settings sound and make sure that the "Haptic feedback" toggle is checked, then scroll up and click "vibration intensity" and the "notification" value is the one that controls it.
As for having the AOSP lock screen vibration and NO haptic feedback. This one, you need to make sure that the "Haptic feedback" is checked like above and the "vibration intensity" and the "notification" value is set correctly again like mentioned above. You need to turn on Power Savings for this to work. Just UN-check everything you don't want, just make sure that the "Turn off haptic feedback" is Checed. This will cancel out the setting in Sound to activate the soft key haptic feedback and still allow the AOSP lock screen vibration working as well.

Q: Does this ROM update my baseband? If not, how do I update to the newest?
A: No. This ROM does NOT touch the baseband. If you want to upgrade I provided links above for flashable.zips for MDK and ME7 so you can decide which suits you better.

Q: I have an issue, when should I post about it?
A: Please ONLY post issues if
  1. you have done a complete FULL wipe.
  2. you are not running anything outside the stock ROM, meaning kernels, themes, MODs, etc.
  3. after you have completed steps 1 & 2 please kindly post your issue(s) and I will do my best to alleviate them.

Q: How can I donate?
A: My paypal donation link is set up to the left under my name click the "Donate to me" button, or my PayPal address is [email protected]

Q: What do I choose? MOD only or Full Install?
A: The ONLY time you want to choose "MOD only" is when you want to go back and add something, so say you are on v1.1.3 or any other version, and want to add the S Translate, you choose "MOD only"
that would be the only time
when you are installing a new ROM, such as v1.1.3 over v1.1.2 or even doing a full wipe install, always choose full wipe (Aroma does not wipe for you, though) so even after choosing the full wipe OPTION, you would still need to wipe the phone in recovery prior, or after the install.

Please don't theme base. Maybe an add on theme is good but I personally dislike most peoples theme taste. Whatever happened to the old days of devs...and themers. Seems like now it's themers building Roms and baking their theme into it. Blacked out is overplayed also. There's no aesthetic appeal to making something plain colors with no aliasing and dropshadow to enhance the dimensional appearance.

Anyways...that's assuming your 1.1 plans are going to be extensive. Minimally themed is best imo

thank you very much let me know how you like it. :)

Looks awesome. Native tether enabled/hacked? I travel a bit so this ends up as my number one feature in a Rom. I've not had good luck with the tether apps.

I just tested and it seems to be acting really weird, let me dig into that, thank you.
Although, this is with stock, a 3rd party app may work.

base is 100% non-themed..

this ROM will always be stock themed, with theme add-ons.. this is why I have a "theme" section in the second OP

my plans for v1.1 are already listed as well.


I also don't claim to be anything I am not.
I don't claim to be any type of amazing developer because I simply am not.
I am an attentive DEV, that enjoys helping the community and the challenge that I get from this.
I brought blocking mode and call/message block back to us Verizon customers, that's the only true DEV accomplishment I take credit for.

This looks cool.

So 1.1 will bake in the ME7 updates, did I read that right?

Yes you did. I got this phone on the 23rd of this month and had already stared on MDK so wanted to start with this base as I find it very solid, then move on to fully making v1.1 based off of the ME7 base that is now rooted, just want to be sure that there isn't any issues first.

Thanks for this Andy! As I told you recently in a G+ group that shall remain unnamed, you and scrosler are my devs of choice when I do run TW. And then there was only one! :D

Anyway, just got my S4 today, so it was perfect timing to see a BoneStock pop up here tonight! Thanks so much for your continued work and support, downloading now, and looking forward to the ME7 rebase! :thumbup::thumbup:

Settings, My Device, Rom Control, very bottom - Home Wake Button. You have to enable it then disable it again to get the Power button wake back.

My apologies, you already found it.

Just want to say - excellent v1 release andybones! I miss a few of the convenient addons, etc from Beans but a very solid start and, as always, I await the future. No problems whatsoever at this point - well, other than I finally found out my Samsung 64GB SD card is trash which is a different subject altogether.
