Thanks ...

..with init.d enabled to run scripts , we can do many things !
- perhaps the most important will be to enable Supercharger V6 on your device !
( need some times to read & understand all on V6 Supercharger topic ! ....my custom rom offers all the prerequisites for successful installation ! )
- you can enable / disable some function on rom ;
- also you can find on XDA forum , some utile scripts !
( you do not need to install any scripts, just put on init.d directory ! it will install (run) automatic on boot ( when you open your device ) - you can also see a file script by using notepad++ on windows , or using > sudo emacs name_scripts on linux/ubuntu ! )
Good luck ! :good:

Will do. I'm very busy with work for the next few weeks. After that, I will get cracking.

Thanks a million for all your work.

Hi Surdu,

I have installed and running Clean_Slim&Fast V02 but I seem to have a superuser issue.

I have root!!! but any apps requiring root permission is not getting added, superuser is there but nothing gets added to its allowed list I dont even get the popup to allow or disallow root.

Any ideas?

***EDIT*** Fixed by installing SuperSu

Nenamark2 fails to load on this version of Clean, Slim & Fast with the following message:

Initialization failure..java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: No configs match configSpec [argb 0565] [depth 16] [stencil 0]
That should be a supported pixel configuration according to Quadrant's System Information. Did they update the PowerVR drivers between 4.0.24 and 4.0.25?

Also, The Bard's Tale used to work properly on 4.0.7 with the purple textures and full audio. On all 4.0.4 based firmwares (Archos and surdu's) graphics are fixed, but the dialog cuttoff bug is present and it gets worse and worse with every version that has a "Fixed dialog cuttoff bug" in the "What's new" section.

I have a noob question ... :p

I want to make a "clean install", so if I am right I have to:
1- Format device in SDE
2- Flash Official_4.0.25.aos from Archos (Don't lose SDE after that)
3- Reboot
4- Flash this beautifull ROM (as usual)
5- Reboot
6- Reboot one more time
