(RC2.2)



Legendary ROM is a collaborative effort between kmullins88, myself, and the rest of the ERA Team... I have teamed up with ERA in hopes that we can bring the BEST Epic ROM to the table for feasting on... So we hope you enjoy your treats! :cool:

Thanks qbking77 for the review and how-to install videos:

Changes to the OP... Include a "Full ROM Download" section, where new users can find the full Legendary ROMs. In the "Changelog/updates" section, you'll find the changelogs, and smaller updates for users currently running Legendary.

Big thanks to
kennyglass123 for hanging around the thread and helping others... Big help when other things need our attention.

Neat! I'll flash it the moment it's available. I don't know if you're taking requests but I'm going to make a couple anyway, maybe for future versions. :)

1) Disable the battery full alert.
2) Fix the volume rocker to go all the way down to full silence without vibration.

With or without these features, this looks like it'll be my next rom. Thanks!

I'll try to implement ASAP...

Are you getting rid of carrier iq on this as well???

My plans are to remove CIQ, yes... It's alot more work than i had previously thought it to be, though.

The modem's available in OTA... if you odin back to EC05 modem and then flash the EI22 modem update it should be good to go.

Now whether or not someone can create a .tar ball from this is still a waiting game... If it doesn't surface by tomorrow, I'll probably get on it.

Have you even tried his current rom Stocky-ish ?? It locks in on satellites really good with the fascinate gps files.

I use STOCKY-ISH_ROM_v6.T1 before returning to the froyo firmware
and, I think it is "hardware problem" in my Epic GPS signal reception :confused:

* I compare with some other devices in the same location, and I am the worst epic in receiving satellite signals
until now i'm still looking for a solution for the my GPS problem


i hope so, but this rom version release without the modem,
but nothing is impossible...

have you tried it on cm7? mine used to be horrible til i flashed that... after it locked 7/7

I would agree, cm7 gave me the best lock, then I tried Stocky-ish the latest release with the fascinate gps files and locked 6 out of 8 which is good enough. On cm7 I did get 11 out of 11.

Downloading now. Can't wait to get my GTalk video rocking!...... and other gingerbready goodness too!

Update 1:
CANDY CORN!!!!!

Update 2:
Music is working (FLAC).
The hotspot app isn't modded (already mentioned in a previous post).
The first boot took a little while, while the word "Android" flashed... give it a minute or two.
The screen rotate feature is so fast it's sexy. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS! the 3 second rotate on other roms was killing me.
The camera app and Gallery works for both pics and video.
PEAP authentication is listed for wifi login which can be hit or miss depending on the ROM. THANKS! The WIFI connected instantly and works.
The GPS got a fix WITHOUT WIFI LOCATION HELP in under 20 seconds in Google Maps to within 20 meters. It centered in on the front of my house (which is where I am lol)
The compass works.
3 bars of cell signal (normal)

Update 3:
The lock screen looks right in landscape AND portrait mode. Haven't come across a ROM that can do both that I recall.
GTalk video chat WORKS!!! It bogs the phone down a bit, but nevertheless, it works!
The hardware keyboard is working flawlessly. No skipping of keys. Did you patch the keyboard, or is my typing just better than usual?
Bluetooth sync'd without issue... Didn't even ask for the "0000" password
Phone calls are improved over bluetooth (subjective, I know, but people were having a hard time hearing me on Froyo ROMs over bluetooth.)
No crashes yet, but I've only had it running for 20 minutes.

Update 4:
Super user permissions work
The market app works
Google+ is pre-installed and works, but had an update in the market. Youtube did as well.
The speaker works.

I have to say... First impressions are VERY good. The one thing that's really sticking out here is the speed. There are no delays at all (save GTalk video) in anything I do on this phone. Thanks for all the hard work, Joshua! I'm going to hold on to this ROM for awhile to come I think.

Off topic, but I just realized that I joined in January of 2009, and this is my FIRST POST! WTH was I doing all this time?! I always login, but I guess I've just never been this excited about a ROM. :-/

Update 5:
Not really sure how to tell, but I had a question. Have you removed Carrier IQ or should I flash the nociq zip from this post?

Update 6:
God I love updates! I read that you want to remove CIQ in one of the first posts. Check the link in post 5. k0nane just got the package up. I'll flash it to see if it bricks the OS now.

Update 7:
The nociq patch installed correctly, and the phone is back up and running. I'm not sure what if any visual changes there are, but apps still work, I still have cell signal, and the only thing outside the normal is the black helicopter with the sprint logo hovering outside my window....I uhhhh gotta go... tell my family I love them!!!

    Battery Full Notification (REMOVED)

    Anywho... I did get to learn a bit last night about where some methods were hiding. lol

    statusBarPolicy is NOT in services.jar, as with the vibrant... and there's nothing in android.policy.jar. lol

    ended up finding what i needed in SystemUI.apk and just voiding out some of the smali in .method private addFullChargeNotification()V

    See below if you would like to know how this is done.


    In the SystemUI.apk

    \smali\com\android\systemui\statusbar\policy\StatusBarPolicy.smali

    Change this:
    Code:
        .line 2026
        const/high16 v1, 0x701
    
        invoke-virtual {v0, v1, v2}, Landroid/app/NotificationManager;->notify(ILandroid/app/Notification;)V
    To this:
    Code:
        return-void
    
        .line 2026
        const/high16 v1, 0x701
    
        invoke-virtual {v0, v1, v2}, Landroid/app/NotificationManager;->notify(ILandroid/app/Notification;)V
    Plain and simply, this skips past the invocation of 3 methods within addFullChargeNotification(), which are pretty self explanatory.

    1. notify() - Makes your notification in the notification bar when the battery is full.
    2. playTone() - Plays the sound when the battery is full
    3. turnOnScreenWithForce() - Forces the screen on when the battery is full.
    I didn't want to go this route, but the one time i tried removing this code (i only tried once). The notification bar would disappear when the Battery turned 100%.


    Don't forget to hit thanks! ;)

    Sorry this is taking so long, all... I'm really busting my ass to get this installer working before i go giving anyone the option to convert over to MTD...

    Basically...

    If you're Legendary 2.2 - Update ROM - Which in this case just tells you you're already on 2.2 and that there's no changes.

    If it's not Legendary 2.2 - Backup system, THEN check to see which partition type you're on.

    If MTD, format MTD, and do full install

    If EXT4, format EXT4, and do full install

    Restore ROM

    Update Kernel (Always, just to be safe, and just incase of updates)

    FINISHED!


    Problem i'm having is with a few things right now... Mostly with implementation of the full install after formatting either one way or the other. It's more of a hassle that i'd expected, and i'm NOT having fun with this. lol

    As soon as i get this done, i'm going to throw together a zip that does a backup, formats to MTD, and restores... So we don't have to keep doing these CWM backups.

    Again, sorry this is taking so long... I'm working my a$$ off to get it done. lol
    7
    phewww..

    soo 2.2 is not far away, just a couple of changes.... sorry i havent been helping much its pretty hectic in my life right now...

    im always thinking about how to make this rom better tho so dont worry guys..

    Just want to wish the ERA team a Merry Christmas, don't know if you all celebrate but wanted to share that sentiment with you all and your families.

    Thanks... I do appreciate the holiday wishes. Baby's first Christmas has been crazy! So much new stuff... And at almost 4 months... She can unwrap her own presents once I get a tear in the paper started. Lol

    On a dev note... I do plan on getting back into the swing of things... But most likely not until the new year. I have to work through some bugs with a few things. (Ie. Updater-script, possible kernel, few mods that the epic hasn't seen yet) don't want to go into any detail as I don't want to get anybody's hopes up... But keep watching.
