no, but apps that run in the background affect performance. have you reflashed peach?

No, would that help? I figured it wouldn't make much of a difference since we didn't load too much stuff on it anyway. If I do a hard reset, isn't it same thing or do I have to through the whole process with SD card?
And since I removed some apps it got a little faster.

Every time I try to flash Peach, the install fails. I gave up after downloading and reflashing three times. Suggestions?

I guess development stopped, nobody really follow up anymore.
I am trying to flash this fresh and get rid of everything, I am running Peach, can I just do a factory reset to rest to original peach? Or do I actually have to flash it all over after wiping everything?

if you delete or modify original system files that came with the rom you will end up in a bootloop when reset from the settings. So for precautions i'd download and install the rom again

Doing that right now, just wipe all, flash and reboot..
I was looking at other roms, especially rebel rom, but I guess this one is still the best. What launcher do you suggest (nova doesn't work :( and included awd is really bad)

I figured out that it was my TWRP version. I flashed it with a newer version and it worked ok. Didn't like Rebel at all, though. It didn't last any longer on the battery and was so much more limited than the jb roms I had been using. As I have posted previously, do a full wipe and install slimbean 4.2.2. That rom was my fave so far (and I've probably used about 5-6). I'm on rooted stock now with nova launcher and waiting on slimkat.

I can't get slimbean gapps link to work, it's dead.. :(
Also for some reason I can't get CWM to register the SD card, not sure if it is not hot swappable..

Do a search for a post by Artful Dodger describing his ideal setup. The link to gapps there should work.

Let me check his links, I got back into cwm finally. Let me first get PS working and then will hunt for gapps.


What do you guys suggest for a launcher on Peach Sunrise instead of ADW

Glad you got cwm working again. I like nova launcher, but I've used several, none off which really stood out.

I don't think cwm sees the external sd card. It never saw it for me. Pissed me off.

I see you finally gave up on Peach, thank goodness. You don't know what you're missing! Anyway I finished on the Exhibit with @smartguy044's AOKP 4.2 and was very happy with it. I'm going to leave it on there permanently, even when/if given to somebody else. Just go to that thread and download the ROM & Gapps. Slimbean 4.2 is good too but I thought AOKP beat it slightly with performance and stability.

I really wanted to try SlimBean but I can't find that link for gapps, it doesnt work in http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2185107


Question, what is included in gapps? Can we get just the play store and forget about the rest? I don't need any of the rest.

Yes that's it. Most Gapps packages just include Play, Play Services, Calendar, Google search (Google Now) and basics so those services work. Some larger ones include Gmail, Maps and such. If you use AOKP, just use standard 4.2 Gapps that can be found all over XDA (just search "4.2 Gapps"). The zip file will be around 80mb or so.

OK, I just flashed AOKP (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2177902) and its gapps man, I have been wasting time on Peach Sunrise, this thing runs very well and very smooth. Not that Peach was bad, but I had no idea I could have 4.2 in this condition on this old device, not to mention the languages. I asked people if I could get other languages like German, Greek, etc.. and it turns out 4.2 comes with it, stock out of the box.

AOKP runs fine, I won't bother with slimbean for now. Looks great! Thanks again!!

I need to find a way to SIM unlock this phone now..

Don't hate please.

Did you read the rest of it, I just didn't think 4.2 would run this smooth, that's all. Peach Sunrise is still the best because it has stock wifi calling and all other goodies and it is the most stable & compatible ROM. I have nothing against it, but not getting responses or nobody telling me I could go with AOKP and have all the languages I needed is just disappointing.

Theoretically, t-mobile will give you the unlock code if you ask for it. If you call and get push back, hang up and call back. The next rep with whom you speak might give it to you.

Well keep in mind it's pretty dead around here anymore, so many have moved on in reality there aren't too many people to answer questions left. Peach is no longer supported and no one really has any interest in anything related to GB. It's hard to believe but we are now five android versions later (4.0, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4). I know so many liked the Wi-Fi calling feature but truly there is nothing to be gained and everything to lose staying with a GB ROM anymore. Just my opinion as everybody is entitled to what they like. If it makes you or anyone else happy to stick with this or anything else, more power to you. I think you will be happy with AOKP though.

Well, I am on G2 right now, wife was using the Exhibit, and she moved onto P870, I am just working on this so I can send it to grandparents to use overseas. So the simpler the better and AOKP seems to be pretty simple, in fact looks to be near-vanilla.

We'll see what happens, actually I wanted to get an unlock code for the Lumia 521 but I was told that it is not that easy, in fact I bought 520 from MS Store and now it is going back because AT&T won't unlock it! Flat out rejects it. Anyway, hopefully T-Mo will be better. Will give it a shot. Thanks.

Actually I was thinking about GB ROM because I value camera so much. Its never been as good as it was on GB. Actually its pretty bad.
Its amazing they even got camera to work as it always seemed to be a struggle every time a new ROM came out.


On another note I may try Aokp as well but aoip has been the best for me hands down. It is almost as good as my wife's S3.

    Peach Sunrise is the first custom ROM for the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit. Based on stock UVLG3, it's deodexed, zipaligned, rooted, very lightly themed and uses a custom kernel. A CWM-based Recovery is required for installation. The industry spyware program Carrier IQ has been removed. This ROM is based on Samsung stock UVLG3 and is NOT vulnerable to USSD Dialer Attacks!

    Everything that works with stock works with Peach Sunrise.

    You can swap your internal and external sd storage using the included SwapSD app.

    ADW Launcher is default. This launcher is highly themable, with many hundreds of themes (including ICS) downloadable from the Market.

    EStrongs FM, Voltage Control, DSPManager and CIFSManager are included in the ROM.

    V6 SuperCharger is included.

    The stock WallpaperChooser has been modified exposing 30 new Wallpapers from Samsung, previously hidden in the source code!

    Extra features include busybox, bash shell, terminal, init.d support, rc.local support, remount script. Additionally, adb now supports root access, allowing you to do things from your command line that were not previously possible.

    Download Peach Sunrise 3.01 Android 2.3.6 HERE
    Download Mirror

    Kernel sources

    Installation

    CWM Keys:
    Home key = enter
    Back key = back
    VolUp/Dwn = highlight choice

    1. Back up your data. The installation will format your data partition. I suggest Titanium Backup, available in the Market.

    2. Download the peach.sunrise zip file & copy to either your internal or external sd card.

    3. Install Galaxy Exhibit 4G Custom Recovery (cwm) . If you're already rooted, you may install from the command line, otherwise you may install from Samsung's Recovery. Samsung's recovery only sees the internal SD, so copy the cwm zip there. Stock recovery sometimes takes more than one try to start.

    Easy way to start recovery
    * Make sure the cwm zip is on your internal (non-removable) sd.
    * Pull the battery from your phone.
    * Connect phone to your pc via usb.
    * Press & hold Volume-up
    * Insert battery

    Your phone will boot into recovery. Press the capacitive menu button (left bottom button) when you see the open white box and droid. Choose 'apply update from sdcard' and select the cwm zip file.

    4. Start Custom Recovery (cwm): Press & hold Vol-Up, then press & hold Power. Shortly after the plain white Samsung logo appears, release both buttons. Recovery should start after the color Samsung/T-Mobile Exhibit logo.

    5. Select ROMwipe. This step is required! You will have problems if you do not install Peach to a clean system.

    6. Highlight install zip from sdcard, then press Home.

    7. Highlight 'choose zip from sdcard/external sdcard, depending where you placed the download in step 2.

    8. Highlight the peach.sunrise zip file, then press Home.

    After you confirm your choice, installation should take less than three minutes.

    Big Thanks to Camcory for his assistance with the extended menu for this release!

    Remember to do a Nandroid Backup when you're happy with your setup!

    Bloat
    Peach Sunrise has been de-bloated, meaning that most of the junk that
    T-Mobile/Samsung includes to eat up your phone's storage has been removed.
    If you need some of that stuff back, download the bloat file below, it's all in there.

    ClockworkMod 5.5.0.4

    I've rebuilt our recovery image to include ClockworkMod 5.5.0.4. Thanks to Wilson and arco68 and of course Koush!

    Download HERE

    copy the cwm zip file to /mnt/sdcard and flash with recovery (stock or other).

    Easy way to start recovery

    1. Make sure the cwm zip is on your internal (non-removable) sd.
    2. Pull the battery from your phone.
    3. Connect phone to your pc via usb.
    4. Press & hold Volume-up
    5. Insert battery

    Your phone will boot into recovery. Press the capacitive menu button (left bottom button) when you see the open white box and droid. Choose 'apply update from sdcard' and select the cwm zip file.

    You can also flash via dd at a root prompt. You'll need recovery.img, contained in the cwm zip file This is considered to be advanced, but actually, it's quite easy.

    Code:
    adb shell
    su
    dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13
    reboot recovery
    cwm keys: home,back, vol-up,vol-dn
    9
    peach.v2.rc1.zip

    peach.v2.rc1.zip

    I expect that this will actually be 2.0, unless someone posts something show stopping.

    Very heavily debloated.
    swapsd included
    terminal included
    V6 SuperCharger included.
    DSPManager included.

    To swap your internal and external sd:
    open terminal.
    type "su" to become root.
    enter swapsd external to swap OR
    enter swapsd default to return to normal.
    reboot.
    This is only done once.
    The change is persistent until you swap it back.
    Please note than cwm does not recognize swapping.


    Currently, SuperCharger is not initially activated. I'll probably have a default active at boot in the future.

    To activate Supercharger, open terminal and enter su.
    When you have a "#" prompt, enter v6.
    A reboot is required after you exit the v6 script.
