Code:
*** Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any damages to your device. ***


Intro

This ROM is purely AOSP and nothing more, no unnecessary tweaks or changes. I like my ROM to be close to AOSP as possible with the fewest changes to the source. That being said there are a few tweaks needed to have a working Toro ROM so I will list them and continue to add what android changes.

Title of this thread is Pure Toro AOSP, so I will never add any Mods or Apps to this ROM unless it's something android adds that's significant.
I will have 2 builds going this Pure AOSP build and one that I will modify to my style. Now released!

New GApps 8/23 added, please use the package included in this thread.

"included recovery"

what does this mean? if I flash this ROM it doesn't get rid of my CWM recovery, right?


Yes it will not get rid of your CWM recovery, the stock recovery was removed from the installer. I was saying that I could add it back and upload the file if somebody wants that recovery with this rom.

You win lol

*fixed Thanks.

Hey error, thanks for another stock rom. One thing I noticed is that you did not include the eri.xml fix. Any chance to include a hotfix? Or can I just go to Root Explorer and edit it myself? Thanks!

EDIT: Never mind, I think I need to edit it from the framework-res.apk. :/

I didn't include the eri.xml fix because I didn't feel it's fully necessary, but I will since it's not a huge change. Thank you.


Awesome ROM! I had some problems with the other stock-like ROMs which are not present in this ROM! Very fast and stable.

That was fast, thank you hopefully you enjoy it. Battery life is also good for me. Let me know how yours is after a few days !

many thanks for the 4.3 ROM! for those running it, have you had any issues with the data connection dropping so far? i've seen reports of that in other 4.3 ROM threads so figured I would ask.

There should not be any data dropping while on this ROM. If you do encounter any issues please let me know.

New update including eri.xml change and few small changes. You can just flash over v1.

First off, thanks for your time and work. It is appreciated.

Do you know why there is that "bug" with Google Now reporting location reporting as off? I haven't had the rom installed long enough to see if I get any issues related to it, but it just bugs me that it keeps showing that card.

Obviously if it works, then that is great, but something must be causing Google Now to think otherwise and that could possibly indicate another issue we don't realize yet.

Again, thanks. So far it seems to be running very smoothly.

Right now I am running a new build that I made some location service changes everything appears to be reporting correctly. I am still getting the Google Now message though. Hopefully I will have it fixed tonight or find a commit for it. It too bothers me seeing the message in Google now.

Could it be a complication with the new battery conscious location services 4.3 was supposed to introduce? I am by no means a developer or properly educated about the new location services, but they sound like they may work quite differently than what 4.2.2 and earlier used.

My Google Now keeps asking me to turn on location services but they are already on. None of my location based apps work such as Maps, Earth, Ingress. Help?

    Hey guys sorry for not posting. Been out of town for 2 weeks due to work, just wanted to let you guys know I am not gone. I should have a new build out tomorrow night. Due to some transparency issues I think I may remove it for the time being. Also going to use cyanogenmods quick settings in tomorrows build with 4g lte toggle. Few fixes and going to have halo updated. Thinking to include theme chooser in the next build or later, what do you guys think ? I enjoy just stock look but have no problem adding more to pure toro just don't want to get too crazy :)

    Blacklist a MUST in all roms

    ♦ToroNex-Vanir

    You have to long press the application in recent apps and go into app info to enable it.

    I think those able to send/receive MMS on 3G are quite lucky. And whatever build you're on - stay on it! Like I mentioned before, no other ROM has been able to smooth that issue out for me, and this one is no different. I think it may just boil down to VZW APN stuff, or radios, but either way, just thought I'd add my $.02.

    I haven't heard of the problem but I would think it's due to Verizon. Try deleting the Mms.apk from system/app folder and using the Mms.apk from the stock ROM. I doubt it will fix your issue if it's on every 4.3 ROM you have tried but it's worth a shot. Also what's your PRL # ?

    New build is out Pure Toro Modified v1.61.

    Should fix issues with nav and statusbar transparency and added CM quick settings with 4g lte toggle.
    I am going to release another build of Pure Toro Stock soon, it will be more AOSP then the last few builds.


    Edit: Settings crash in v1.61, new build v1.62 will correct that issue. Sorry about that guys.

    New build JLS36I is out for Pure Toro Stock v5. I took out a lot of extra features I added in such as boot animation and wallpapers. It still has google services and what not listed in the feature and fixes. I also adjusted the signal strength for LTE with the stock rom.

    Should have the new version of the Modified ROM out this weekend.



    Blacklist feature for call/texts added yet?

    ♦ToroNex-Vanir

    No, I've been working on it though and hope to have it in this weekends build. I will PM you if I end up adding it in.

    a fellow xda member that uses the reference ROM. He had all the data issues we whine about. Once the ROM updated to 4.3.1 they were gone. Keep in mind Reference ROM is pure AOSP.

    I noticed it's definitely a lot better but let me know if you guys encounter any issues.
