    And here we are. After a looong long time I'm back on track and working on the long-waited V7. Everything changes one more time: while the ROM is still open-source, this time the development process will be shared step by step, and you will have the possibility of trying the rom in every development phase,just like a Cyanogen nightly. So that everyone will get the best out of this ROM: everyone is a tester, everyone can be part of the development providing fixes and advices, everyone can suggest a feature integration! We're all contributing to make DMod the best ROM ever, so stay tuned! :highfive:

    1 - Download the ROM
    2 - Put the zip file in your internal/ext Sd card
    3 - Reboot in recovery (CWM,TWRP)
    4 - Flash the ROM
    5 - Follow the instructions on the AROMA installer
    6 - Wait for the process to finish and reboot


    V7 NIGHTLY BUILDS: You will have to build them yourself. Just go to this link https://bitbucket.org/dariolob/dmodv7/downloads and press "Download Repository", that should download a zip file of the ROM. It isn't ready for flashing though! You will have to extract it and re-zip it to make it work with custom recoveries :) Don't worry, you'll have to follow this process only for nightlies, every beta will be released through a ready-to-flash zip as every other ROM!


    Tethering is not working well for some users. To fix the problem just flash CrossBreeder, you can find it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2113150

    Hey guys, I have some news for you :)

    - AROMA installer is fully working! Just before launching the installation you will have to choose your device and specific files will be installed. V6 will see some extra stuff included in the AROMA script!
    On the other hand though, AROMA doesn't like my updater script, it says something like "Got 4 args, 3 expected" As my updater script is always the same I'll have to investigate a bit more.
    - That said, I've themed lockscreen so that it shows the flare effect like in S4 :D Also, a S4 themed music player will come with V5;
    - S4 Polaris 5 is working very well on our device, and also S-Translator is finally working :)
    - Finally after some intensive tests I can say AOSP camera is fully working on our device. I will share the apk as soon as possible!
    I don't think I will integrate transparent statusbar because it's quite buggy and it turns full white in some apps

    Today I will focus on this updater script thing and if I manage to solve it you'll V5 this evening! :eek:

    Oh and 1k thanks for my 1k thanks :p
    Hey guys, here I am! Sorry for my absence but sometimes real life takes over the dev one :)
    'Til now dolar4ik has done a AWESOME work integrating all the remaining V5 features in V6. Now I will take care of the last things and then DMod will be officially ready :)
    Stay tuned!
    DMod version 6

    Current status of DMod version 6:
    • based on latest AMD3
    • supports 8190, 8190N and 8190L variants
    • all features from v5 ported successfully (some useless features are removed)
    • improved usage of AROMA installer (more options)
    • WIPE ONLY version due changed sources
    • huge clean up
    • and more new features (full list will be provided later)

    Now we need some time to test it on 8190 (my phone) and 8190N (@dariolob phone) and implement one missing feature that we wanted to add.

    If everything OK version 6 will be released next week.

    And little secret:
    We will provide convenient place to post, discuss and resolve bugs and features so it will be easier to track current "in development" features list and bugs.
