AOKP P7500 SaberMod 4.9 Unofficial builds

40+ patches to fix code violation rules
Compiled using -O3 for the most optimizations
Included Linaro string handling routines for memory optimization
Using pershoot kernel for the stability


ROM: SaberMod toolchain 4.9
pershoot kernel: Linaro toolchain 4.7

Disclaimer
I'm not responsible for any damages on your device.

Based on my experience building rom with SaberMod toolchain on device i9100 and users feedback, I begin to build AOKP for p4 and decided to share my private builds with you all.
This build is compiled using SaberMod toolchain and like the official one, it is built from the same source: AOKP github
I could cherry-pick some commits ahead from AOKP team or patches from other repositories that I find useful.
The ROM and the kernel are tested by me first before I make it available online. I could have overseen something during testing, please be understand.
In summary, it is still AOKP that is compiled with SaberMod toolchain.

Latest release
Rom: 20131109
Recovery: CWM 6.0.3.6 compiled by pershoot.

Installation instructions
Coming from another ROM:
  • Flash latest recovery from here.
  • Full wipe: data, cache, dalvik cache and preload if you are coming from Samsung rom.
  • Format system partition manually.
  • Flash the rom.
  • Flash gapps from here or here.
Coming from previous unofficial build:
  • Wipe cache and dalvik cache.
  • Flash the rom.
  • No need to re-flash gapps. Gapps will be restored back automatically by backup tool during flashing.
Additional changes
  • Kill all button: Ported recent apps animated view from Slimbean.
  • Added CM 10.1 LockClock and set it as default.
  • Added Nova launcher and set it as default.
  • Added backup tool support, ported from Slimbean.
  • Tuned up auto brightness levels.
  • Removed some unused apks and media files.
  • Other possible changes that are included in each build release. See changelog for more details.

F.A.Q (Freaking Annoying Questions)

What is the difference between these builds and the official builds?
Short version: It is unofficial nightly builds whereas official one is stable builds.
Long version: It is built using the same source (github) like the official one but with these following additional changes:
  • Compiled using SaberMod 4.9 & 4.7 toolchain combo.
  • Contains some cherry-pick commits. See OP and changelog for more details.
  • Faster? Smoother? Find it yourself. ;)
What is Toolchain?
In software, a toolchain is the set of programming tools that are used to create a product (typically another computer program or system of programs). The tools may be used in a chain, so that the output of each tool becomes the input for the next, but the term is used widely to refer to any set of linked development tools.
A simple software development toolchain consists of a compiler and linker to transform the source code into an executable program, libraries to provide interfaces to the operating system, and a debugger. A complex product such as a video game needs tools for preparing sound effects, music, textures, 3-dimensional models, and animations, and further tools for combining these resources into the finished product.
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toolchain

What is SaberMod?
The term "SaberMod" is coming from:
SaberMod is a AOSP based ROM with some extra features added in and mostly from CyanogenMod. SaberMod started out pure AOSP when android 4.2.1 launched. Originally it was pure AOSP with a few extra features I ported over from CyanogeMod and linaro optimizations. Then I rebased everything off of rasbeanjelly because I liked many features found in rasbean. Since then I've modified a lot of the code so not much of it is rasbeanjelly based anymore. But you will still find some commonly used features found in rasbeanjelly. SaberMod is not a rasbeanjelly or CM clone, or KANG. Custom kernels are included for certain devices when available. These are personal builds we make for ourselves and originally became very popular in the nexus 7 forums. Features are very rarely added, and are built to SaberMod's team members liking. Currently there are two members of SaberMod working on this project. Myself and @jarjar124 . Please understand our time is limited and we are only two people who have lives, and do not have 25-50 members like CyanogenMod to add things. And our goal is not to add a bunch of features that bloat the system of the ROM.

What is Linaro?
Linaro is the place where engineers from the world's leading technology companies define the future of Linux on ARM. The company is a not-for-profit engineering organization with over 120 engineers working on consolidating and optimizing open source software for the ARM architecture, including the GCC toolchain, the Linux kernel, ARM power management, graphics and multimedia interfaces.

Cool!! I like the CRT animation like on the nexus :p can you also compile it for p4wifi please?

You know there's other AOKP ROMs too. Try infamousAOKP. I'm currently on it.

Sorry I haven't got the time to test this ROM yet.

Edit: Just flashed...overall its pretty awesome. A question, what kernel are you using?

i never use twrp recovery, but it should work.
you mean dual mount? i'm not sure if pershoot kernel supports this.

Thanks for your fast reply
I also not like twrp recovery but I don't have laptop to back CWM and beside that, twrp with touch enable are more comportable
I has just flash over twrp and it fine. Roller back some app and permission, review later
Thanks for your Rom, hard working

Your welcome. :)
You can flash recovery image with mobile odin. I usually flash recovery from pershoot's site with mobile odin.
Just saw on his site there is a new CWM recovery 6.0.3.4.

AOKP-p4-UNOFFICIAL-SaberMod-4.9-20130804.zip

Changes:
* Now compile the rom using -O3 GCC optimization flags. Rom feels smoother and respons better.
* Follow CM to re-enable dalvik performance optimizations.
* Use the ability to hide GC freed lines in logcat -> less logging.
* See the rest in changelog.

Note: The rom size is a little bigger than previous build. It is normal and caused by the -O3 compiler flags.

    good news...
    i have managed to compile slimsaber 4.3.1 for p4 device. :D
    slimsaber is an unofficial slimbean rom that i compiled with sabermod toolchain for galaxys2 and galaxy note.
    as i tested, it is much faster than this build aokp 4.2.2, especially with 1.4 ghz. the app just opens very fast.
    however slimbean doesn't have ui mode like aokp. so as you can see in the screenshot, there is separate status bar at top of the screen, but you can hide the status bar if there is no notifications. the navbar at the bottom is also center oriented, but it is manageable since you can put 2 another buttons.
    however the wifi indicator doesn't work, but wifi works fine as usual, just cosmetic thing.
    i'll test more...
