"One KANG to guide them,
One KANG to show them,
ONE KANG to RULE them ALL!!"

Intro :

This project start out as a port from another phone and turned out to not go over so well. I looked and looked for a better way of doing things. Then I ran into jmztaylor on xda. I initially was gonna use his rom base as a start when he recommended that I give building from source a shot. I then began by starting my own Git. And learning from there with the help of jmztaylor I was able to fully build from source and add a bunch of my own changes to the rom within the build itself. This rom is built for speed, and performance. I have integrated al ot of my own tweaks deeply into this rom. To the point where unless you know how to break down the boot.img and get into the ramdisk you would never know they are there except for the increased in speed and functionality. Next I was able to achieve the couple of mods that ive included with the help of ropodope, jamieg71, and mazda.

ScreenShots :

Instructions :

  1. Download Rom
  2. Boot into recovery
  3. Wipe system, boot, and cache
  4. Flash Rom
  5. Reboot
  6. Splash screen will Take a very long time...sometimes 3 to 5 min
  7. Log into Google
  8. Open Up Super SU and let it update binary if promted
  9. See a2sd section
  10. See batterybar section
  11. Enjoy

A2SD Instructions :

  1. Start terminal (can be found in app drawer)
  2. Type SU (then press enter)
  3. Accept su
  4. Type a2sd install (then press enter)
  5. Go through prompts (Select no to question)
  6. Code:
    Moving app data, and cache can and will cause instability DO NOT DO IT
  7. Reboot and enjoy

This version of a2sd doesn't not install upon flashing rom. It requires that you go through this process. I have chosen this route due to some wanting it and some not and me not wanting to make multiple versions or you having to flash any extra things to not have it even though Mazda did a great job creating that script. This version of a2sd acts completely different it will recognize on reboot as it bindmounts your apps from the ext instead of symlinking them. Symlinking is now used as a backup fallback measure in case something were to ever go wrong. It is also in theory faster and contains a smaller footprint and only works on ics or higher roms at the moment.

Miui Battery Bar Instructions :

  1. Go to settings and choose Miui Battery Settings
  2. Turn off the battery bar then turn back on.
  3. Choose thickness
  4. Choose color of bar (Auto is on by default and it is white) (ICS bllue hex color is ff3f9bbf)
  5. Enjoy (Sometimes it can take a few min for battery bar to show up)


  • DO NOT select yes to move app data and cache to your sd card
  • DO NOT try to install V6 Supercharger, COD, or Smurfed Out tweaks
  • DO NOT Flash anything at the same time as you flash this Rom

[ROM] LOTK CM9 Papa Smurf Style (8/1/12)

Questions & Answers

Question Can I Run Smurfed Out, Supercharger V6, COD, or any other performace tweak with this rom?
Answer NOPE it will bootloop, pause, lag, or generally mess up your rom and you will have to wipe and start all over.

Question Should I wipe when coming to this rom?
Answer Yes and No. Yes if its your first flash, No if You are updating rom (Once there is an Update)

Question What should I wipe?
Answer System, Cache, Boot

Question I'm stuck at splash screen?
Answer The rom vacuums your db and reindexs it making it run faster. This takes a long time. It takes my splash screen sometimes 5 min to go to boot animation. Be patient and it will boot I promise.

Question Super User doesnt seem to be working?
Answer Boot back into recovery and fix permisions

Question My status bar is gone?
Answer Take a screen shot by holding power and volume down at same time...IDK why but this works lol

I feel like a giddy school girl as i wipe my phone and get ready to flash.

Nothing like a Papa Smurf Rom with Jamie and Rope thrown in. Because of you guys im keeping my evo till i cant find parts for it anymore. I laugh at my Sg2.
