[ROM] [stock 4.1.2] Droid Nexesque v3.6 XT925/XT926 "Fast, Stable & Reliable"

** Disclaimer, this is something I am posting here from the www.droidrzr.com forum with direct authorization from the OP to also alert everyone on XDA Developers and the direct download link to the Rom. Ive flashed soo many different Roms and this works the best and in my opinion is the most fast, stable and Force Close free. Battery life is one of the best I've seen for any phone as well. Thanks for this great opportunity to get this to every user smart enough to flash it adamjmtz and JP1044 **

So, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a real developer, but I have spent quite a bit of time reading the INTERNET. This is a stock-based RAZR HD ROM that I have themed and debloated to be as close to a stock nexus experience as possible (hence the 'nexesque' name). I basically like things to be clean, unintrusive, and stable.

DISCLAIMER: I built this rom for my own personal use and I’m posting it on here for you to try. Blah blah blah, if you brick your device it’s your own damn fault.

OPTIONAL ADDON STEP BY STEP GUIDE ON CUSTOMIZING ROM provided from user hallokitty. Special thanks to him.

The framework is an apk easily installed: http://dl.xposed.info/latest.apk (From this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1574401)

GravityBox is here: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.ceco.gm2.gravitybox - there's a link to the APK, currently 2.6.9

Just download them both, install the first framework APK first.. then open it. Choose the "Framework" option at the top. Press "Install/Update". It will need a reboot after.

Then install the GravityBox APK.

In your app drawer, go into "Xposed Installer", you'll be back at the same screen as before, press on "Modules", and check "GravityBox". I think it may even need a reboot again, I don't remember.

From there, just go into GravityBox in your app drawer, it has a few good tweaks - the main reason I got this one is because I can make the Navigation Bar smaller so I have more screen space, you can show the menu key etc.. Also you can center the clock on the status bar, make other visual changes to the Rom and many other tweaks to Nexesque.

As for the DPI, I just went with this simple app in the market: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.texdroider.texdroider_dpi

I'm currently running at 240 and I've had no market issues, but some apps will think you're on a tablet, so it can look odd. I had no problem with any of the settings I tried so far, so I can't report any real issues with that. I didn't try any crazy values though, I say between 200-300 is probably going to work fine.

The link says 926 so is this for the xt926 or will it also work on the xt925? I'm a little afraid to go onward without a little more info but it does sound like a nice ROM to try out :)

This is what I've been able to find for you Safe Strap users: " I have this ROM running via safe strap right now. Built it out last night.

SS 3.12

My procedure: Erased rom slot 1 completely by doing standard cache wipes and wiping the OS. Then activated a different ROM slot. Then clicked rom slot 1 and deleted it.

Rebuilt rom slot 1 with a 2 gig partition. Did all the standard wipes again before I installed. Mounted system only, unchecked other boxes. Installed ROM. Once this ROM was installed wiped cache and dalvik cache & booted, no issues to report yet"

wifi not work

my device is 925, and I own the safestrap procedure that legend221 described. The rom flashed normally, but the wifi does not work.

What could have happened?

I removed the kernel in post #2 as it was an alternative for the Rom but not a requirement.

Performed a full wipe and re flashed just the Rom by itself and it fixed my wifi issue at a local hotspot.

I use mobile data 99 percent of the time so I never noticed before.

Try the same and let us know if you can connect now.

I installed with CWM and now it worked. It's a pity I have not got the safestrap = /

Glad to hear.

I don't have safestrap and am unlocked. Being unlocked is better than having safestrap as some users have tried to unlock but their phones are already upgraded so they cannot unlock their phones anymore.

You should be happy you are unlocked :)

Is there an option in this ROM to remove the soft keys at the bottom of the screen? I use PIE Controls and don't need or want the built-in soft keys. I'd prefer to have the screen real estate. If that option exists I'd love to give this ROM a try.

    adamjmtz, the creator and reason that this Rom exists has great news for any and all that's flashed Nexesque or has interest in it:

    So, I have a pretty cool announcement to make!

    This rom started out as nothing more than me wanting a stock-based rom with all the bloat removed. I took a stock-deodexed rom from vtwinbmx and just experimented with removing different apps to see what happened (I had no idea what I was doing). I was happy that I had cleaned up the bloat from the rom, but I was still unsatisfied with the rom. I'm really into the stock look of android, as many of us are, so I started replacing app and system icons with google icons. Still unsatisfied, I started to photoshop the .png files inside apps that couldn't be replaced with aosp apps (due to my own technical limitations) to try and make the apps look more like aosp. I soon found myself chasing the dragon of rom development, but I hit a wall because modifying apps isn't always as easy as swapping out image files. I started to learn how to decompile and recompile apps so that I could modify the messaging app and system framework. I could probably spend a lot more time researching android development and doing more complicated modifications, but I decided to avoid that rabbit hole due to schoolwork and whatnot. I decided, instead, to focus on keeping the rom simple and without frills for the purpose of maintaining stability. Apparently quite a few people appreciated that philosophy and rather than flashing the rom and running off, many of you have reported bugs and have made valuable suggestions for improving the rom. I wouldn't have had the motivation to maintain Nexesque if it wasn't for everyone's feedback and the incessant prodding for rom updates *joke. Developing the Nexesque rom and maintaining this forum thread have been infinitely more enjoyable than I had imagined when I started and I'm glad you all have been here to test and help out. Ok, ok, that's enough of that...

    As I didn't want to leave you all high and dry after my move to the Nexus 5, I mentioned that I would be more than welcoming to anyone who was willing to take over development of the Nexesque rom. I received a message from jp1044, who expressed interest in maintaining the rom after my departure. I am very grateful that someone stepped up to the plate and I hope that you will all welcome him as the new main developer for the Nexesque rom. He is the founder of Team LiteSpeed, who developed the FlyingJelly roms for the og razr, bionic, razr m, and razr hd. I am more than certain that he is an adequate replacement for me on the Nexesque rom and will probably add more to the rom than I ever could.

    Please welcome your new leader, JP1044

    --------------------------------

    And this is from the member that's over the development for Nexesque JP1044:

    First of all, thank you to adamjmtz for letting me take over this awesome ROM. I love the simplicity, stability, and goal of this ROM and can't wait to continue the legacy. Of course, Nexesque will stay mostly the same as it has been but I'll probably add a couple of my own touches, but nothing that will stray too far from what this ROM already is. I hope to carry this ROM into the RAZR HD 4.4 era. Again, thanks to adamjmtz for allowing me to take over development and I look forward to developing this. If you have any questions, just reply here or PM me.

    I really appreciate the review of the Rom. That's exactly my thoughts after running Nexesque from the beginning and it has only gotten better with each release.

    I have a favor to ask, do you think you can do a step by step instruction for the Exposed Framework and Gravity Box module? And what is the DPI settings that ended up working with this ROM? I'm thinking of adding it to post#2 and crediting you for it of course.


    sent from my xt926 Droid RAZR HD flashed with Nexesque v3.5 - Link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2510965

    The framework is an apk easily installed: http://dl.xposed.info/latest.apk (From this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1574401)

    GravityBox is here: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.ceco.gm2.gravitybox - there's a link to the APK, currently 2.6.9

    Just download them both, install the first framework APK first.. then open it. Choose the "Framework" option at the top. Press "Install/Update". It will need a reboot after.

    Then install the GravityBox APK.

    In your app drawer, go into "Xposed Installer", you'll be back at the same screen as before, press on "Modules", and check "GravityBox". I think it may even need a reboot again, I don't remember.

    From there, just go into GravityBox in your app drawer, it has a few good tweaks - the main reason I got this one is because I can make the Navigation Bar smaller so I have more screen space, you can show the menu key etc..

    As for the DPI, I just went with this simple app in the market: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.texdroider.texdroider_dpi

    I'm currently running at 240 and I've had no market issues, but some apps will think you're on a tablet, so it can look odd. I had no problem with any of the settings I tried so far, so I can't report any real issues with that. I didn't try any crazy values though, I say between 200-300 is probably going to work fine.
