THIS ROM IS OBSOLETE. PLEASE SEE THE NEW VERSION.


CleanGB_LOGO.png


For those of us who just want our phones to $%#^@! work.


This is a clean EI22 based ROM with a custom Black theme. Most of the preloaded Sprint software is removed, with the exception of ThinkFree Office, MyFiles, and Memo. This ROM puts stability ahead of new features and is usally behind the curve when it comes to the latest mods. Those who are into bleeding edge/ricer ROMs will probably find this ROM boring.


Feature List:
  • Based on the original leaked EI22 NANDroid dump (noobnl)
  • Deodexed
  • Custom EI22 kernel with the following features: (source)
    • init.d script support
    • busybox/su
    • keyboard fixes
    • overclocking to 1.4Ghz
    • Voltage control
    • WIFI stability fixes
    • CWM5 Support
    • bootanimation.zip support (None included by default. Place one into '/system/media' and it will play)
  • Carrier IQ ("CIQ") removed (k0nane)
  • RFS file system
  • Stock Gingerbread Launcher with 3D fix (hoffman1984)
  • GPS Fix (hienkhieu)
  • Proper Reboot and Reboot to CWM Recovery on the power menu (Thanks to untermensch for the excellent quide)
  • Hacked Sprint Hotspot (Tortel1210)
  • 1% battery (Icons by Mendozinas)
  • 3G/1x icon fix (SenseiSimple)
  • CRT Off
  • CRT On (Thanks to Whitehawkx for the guide)
  • No battery popup
  • Screen stays off when unplugged
  • Volume rocker mod (sound on to vibrate to silent) (mkasick)
  • Silent Camera (SenseiSimple)
  • Scrollable Status Toggles - with 4G Button (lidroid, SensieSimple, 4G button mod, other fixes mods by me)

FAQ

FAQ:

Q: What's with the 'no root' kernel?
A: There are certain programs that will refuse the work if you have root access. The 'no root' kernel will strip root access at bootup and allow programs which refuse to run on rooted devices to run. To re-obtain root acess all you have to do is flash the regular CleanGB kernel in the first post.

Q: Where is the bootanimation.zip and how can I change the boot animation?
A: The stock boot animation is actually contained in the framework-res.apk file. If you want to use a custom boot animation, all you have to do is place your bootanimation.zip in the /system/media directory and it will play instead of the stock one.

Q: What about [insert feature here]?
A: See the todo list below

Todo/Coming Soon:

Honestly, I don't give a crap about CIQ, so it's not a high priority but since lots of people care about it, I'll incorporate it as soon as someone releases a noCIQ friendly hotspot hack.

Thanks for posting some screenies...and not for nothing but doesn't removong CIQ make a small improvement on battery performance and free up a little extra RAM...I mean after all were only working with 385mb as opposed to the new standard of 1GB?

Edit: theme looks nice and clean looking forward to your updates.

Wow I like the theme. When I saw blackish theme I was a little's turned off at first because I kind of hate those ones where literally everything is black and there is very little color at all. But when I saw the pictures I liked it as it looks mostly stock but with more black. Very classy looking.

Quick question: I've been hesitating on some of the other Tom's as they have had GPS or data or other weird issues that I am just not having running stock odexed with mkasick's ei22 key fix kernel and the GPS fix. I didn't know if the common theme there was the leaked dump or not. Have you seen anything like that with yours?

To be honest, I've had a few hiccups with EI22 that I never had with EH17. GPS has worked fine for me, but once or twice bluetooth has gotten stuck while turning on and the phone went into a zombie-like state. The bluetooth libraries and firmware are the same in EI22 as they were in EH17, so if there is a problem it has to be in the kernel. That's why I'm sticking as close to stock kernel as I can right now.

I've personally had no issues with data or WIFI.

Any chance of getting the power menu mod that includes REBOOT (and Reboot to recovery)?
Amazingly, this is the only EI22 ROM so far that has a battery % mod. Congrats!

Battery life is pretty sick on this! Unplugged at 100% before going to bed last night, and after six hours of sleep it was at 97%. Its now almost 12: 30, and am at 68%! Haven't even connected to my wifi yet, but do have an airrave, so I'm sure that helps. Thank you for this! Wondering how much more I would get out of it by flashing rodderick's nociq over this. Like the black too. Nice work!

May I ask why everyone is including the GPS fix into their ROMs? From my understanding from this thread. You don't need all the GPS locks as it is not needed and the reason you don't without the fix is to save battery life. I think the reason people have been wanting the fix was due to a separate issue that has since then been fixed.

You should leave the GPS fix out for those who don't want it. You can get good accuracy with just a few locks, and anymore locks is just a waste of battery life.

I think noobnl corrected his post since then to say that Samsung forgot to update the gpsd in the new EI22, still using a very old one from the early GB leaks and leaving us with a broken and half-working GPS. Therefore, it seems the only decent way to get good GPS performance again is to flash the GPS fix, which copies over the GPS daemon from the Fascinate (same as CM7).

Okay, the post was kinda confusing. I don't have the GPS fix on my current ROM and I get quick/accurate GPS... is it broke in some other way?

I am going to run my phone without the GPS fix for the few days and see how it goes. I'm very heavy GPS user so if there is a problem I will notice it. If GPS runs fine for me I will probably remove the fix because battery life is more important to me than useless extra satelite locks.
