Virtuous Prime

Welcome to Virtuous Prime. This is a pretty much stock build of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich with tweaks and optimization's by the Virtuous Team.

Virtuous Prime is the result of a collaborative team effort by the following developers:

Virtuous S-Series

S-Series ROM's are pretty close to stock, with basic optimisations and tweaks. This series is designed for people who rely on their device 24/7 and are not looking for the latest and greatest features. These ROM's will only be updated if and when an official release is announced.
We also encourage people to use these stable builds as bases for their own ROM's.

More information can be found on our Blog.

  • Deodexed
  • Fully zipaligned

  • Rooted

Other Stuff

Useful Information

I changed the behaivior of the internal Power Modes.
The Normal mode button now activates the 1.6Ghz mode.
So you don't have to use any other apps anymore. Just boost your CPU via the built in Quicksettings. :)

  • Everything else


Instructions

  • Make sure your Prime is unlocked and you have CWM installed (see this thread for help and a handy tool to do that)
  • Shut down the prime
  • Hold both the Power-button and the Volume-down button until the splash screen appears and some white text in the left top corner is visible
  • Release both buttons and press the Volume-up button
  • The device now boots into your CWM recovery
  • Make a backup of your current ROM
  • Inside CWM select "wipe data/factory reset" (optional but highly recommended)
  • Then flash the rom zip as usual

Downloads

Make sure you do a full wipe (aka "wipe data/factory reset" in CWM) before flashing this!!!

Please note that the ROM needs to settle down after the flash so give it at least 10 minutes after booting to reach the normal speed and smoothness!!!

What I've been waiting for!

Oh man, I can't wait to get home and flash this. I'm ridiculously excited to get my flashing fix on the Asus now. Good job on getting this out there, I'll post again once I install and give my 2 cents.

Edit: Installed, restored all my apps. So far the tablet is running very smoothly. I didn't do any metrics before I installed, so I can't compare, but I'm happy so far. Can't wait to see what else is added to the ROM.

Awesome work on getting a custom rom out on 'Unlock Day' :) can you confirm whether the 'sd card' aka. internal memory partition will get wiped when installing the rom via CWM or not please ?

I installed the rom quite a few times and also used the normal wipe data feature. None of those actions wiped my internal memory :)

Awesome, downloading and flashing right now, matching DHD and Prime.....
... well almost. :D

P.S. Thanks for all the help earlier, and the point in the right direction.

Can confirm, I have wiped every partition possible with CWM today several times and I can say categorically that internal memory is safe and sound.

Doing the necessary back ups so I can install right now.

The android development section for the Prime is finally starting to look proper :)

I hope the next versions of this roms are flash overs of the beta and not full wipes, because those always make me hesitate and wait for some big change to make it worth it.

Dammit, I was just thinking how I couldn't wait to change that as well. You must be reading my mind. :D

Ah well, where there's a will, there's a way!

EDIT: Installed, seems super smooth at the moment, love that I have been able to wipe everything properly and start from scratch with a great ROM.

Are the kernel mods you're planning related to the wifi idea you had about the aux antenna? Or are they just improvements overall?

I am a bit sad kernel flashing won't be as easy, so many features are a bit harder to get...:( But I'll try to get a kernel with working init.d tomorrow :)

And with init.d I can give you better performance too :)

Great work buddy on being the first official custom Rom out on Prime. Plus its on the same day unlock tool came. Can't wait to try out your ROMS down the road once I decide to Unlock. Ill make sure to send thanks your way once it resets. I ran out at the moment. Very anxious to see how you tackle the wifi and GPS issue like discussed before. I remember you told me about some method done to the Desire to extend wifi range or something.

THE ball has started rolling and no stopping its momentum. Prime steamrolling all competition in sight!

Keep up the Great work. I had a feeling you was working on something behind the scenes ;)
