Re: [ROM][XWLS8 4.1.2][08/02] Chameleon v3.0.1 Samsung/AOKP hybrid

that is what i have been using currently, using es file explorer it works fine. its just when downloads complete, if i click via notification drop down window it says unable to open.

Apk installer works fine, and apks weren't corrupt. Its a simple problem yet i have no idea how to fix it.

U know, I have the same problem but I never saw it like a problem itself, I thought it was just the file explorer messing up (I use Solid Explorer) after knowing this behaviour I kinda got used to whenever I download an app file or whatever I would always go to solid explorer, look up for the file and open it directly from there... :p So it is not big deal for me...

not at all
our device isnt the newest or the fastest
you want high frame rate? buy a new phone that can handle android batter

Nah... Sll can run Android just fine.

The problem is that Exynos isn't totally compatible with Project butter requirements, as codeworkx stated in some post.

But the worst part is that CM10.1, even without the proper drivers and whatnot is hella smooth, while this rom has a random behaviour: sometimes its buttery, and sometimes it's choppy.

You're right but that's because of Samsung firmware not the exynos chip
AOSP I think will always be faster

That's what I was trying to tell you...

Weirdly enough, this rom has the whole Samsung frameworks and correct drivers... Why is CM smoother?

No it's wierd because cm doesn't have the correct Mali drivers and support from Samsung which stock has and yet cm is faster and smoother in animations and doesn't slowdown like this rom which is Samsung based
The only thing I'm missing is the great camera

Cm is indeed smoother but unstable in gaming. :) Plus the phone heats up alot. Mali v2 is the reason. Smoother but unstable.

Re: [ROM][XWLS8 4.1.2][08/02] Chameleon v3.0.1 Samsung/AOKP hybrid

And the audio is broken on CM, and the front camera is dodgy, and the rear camera has days off for no reason, and TVOut doesn't work, and the button backlights are wonky. Smoothness isn't everything you know... ;)

Yes in the past now I can really say it's awesome using it for a day I will keep reporting
If I see any issues I will restore my nandroid backup but as of now looks good to me

    THIS IS A ROM DEVELOPMENT THREAD ONLY. IF YOU WANT TO DISCUSS MODS OR ANYTHING NOT RELATED TO ROM DEVELOPMENT PLEASE USE THE CHAMELEON MODS THREAD


    Summer 2013 Announcement
    I'm going to be extremely busy over the Summer of 2013 so my involvement in ROM development is going to be limited. I will update/add features as and when I can. Please do not expect replies to PMs for now, especially development related questions.


    Base: XWMS1 (4.1.2)
    Kernel: Apolo 4.11 Light

    Samsung System Apps
    Camera
    FM Radio
    Some background apps

    AOSP System Apps
    Everything else

    In some cases, I have modified the underlying code in the AOSP apps to make them compatible with the Samsung base. Figuring out how to solve various bugs and compatibility issues has taken a lot of time and effort - therefore I would appreciate it if you do NOT use these AOSP apps in other projects without my permission - it's easy for me to tell if they are from Chameleon by looking at the decompiled smali code.

    Stock ROM functionality
    TV-OUT / stock FM radio
    Stock ROM Hardware Composer (Butter)

    AOKP features (more to be added for future versions)
    General UI
    - Configurable notification backgrounds
    - Recents - kill-all button, RAM bar
    - Hold back to kill
    - LCD density
    Lockscreen
    - Quick pin unlock
    - Configurable wallpaper, text color, battery %
    - Volume music controls

    Statusbar
    - Battery icon / battery bar
    - Clock - center clock, am/pm style, color, day of the week
    - Toggles
    - Signal style

    NEW v3.0.4

    Although I have provided this as a non-wipe ROM, if you're coming from a ROM other than Chameleon YOU MUST WIPE DATA. You will absolutely encounter issues if you don't wipe. You can restore User apps but do not restore system apps, and especially system data. Important: See FAQ in 3rd post regarding data wipes when upgrading from a previous version of Chameleon to 3.0.2

    v3.0.3 IMPORTANT: This is an upgrade zip from 3.0.2 only.
    Messaging: Ability to send MMS again. You'll have to wipe messages (shows up as "Dialer Storage" in System>All Apps) again, sorry! You can back them up using something like SMS Backup and Restore or Titanium Backup's Messages backup feature, wipe messages and restore.
    Framework: AOSP PDU (for MMS)
    TelephonyProvider: Using hybrid TelephonyProvider - AOSP for MMS/SMS (hence the messages wipe required), Samsung for Telephony
    Phone: No longer FCs if you open the Camera during a call
    Phone: Added ability to choose Network Mode (WCDMA/GSM/Auto)
    Dialer: Respects Vibration Intensity
    Lockscreen: Horizontal lockscreen layouts fixed

    v3.0
    System - Rebased to XWLS8
    System - AudioServices now respects key-press sound volume adjustment for AOSP (and 3rd party) keyboards
    System - MediaScanner wakelock fix included (credit to shoman94)

    Tweaks - Thunderbolt! scripts added as a separately flashable package if you want to try them out (they seem to have matured since the beta)

    *I've added an init.d script to enable the mdnie sharpness tweaks, but they won't kick in until after at least one reboot (I think the init.d scripts are run after the kernel checks for the setting). You can however reboot into recovery after flashing the ROM and enable them from CWM > Jeboo tweaks to enable them for first boot.

    Misc

    Known bugs

    3.0.2

    • [*]Sending MMS causes Messaging FC (Fixed for patch, will require wiping messages again - sorry! - Though you can restore them from a backup such as SMS Backup and Restore)
      [*]Opening Camera In-Call causes Phone FC (Fixed for patch - to be uploaded)
      [*]Horizontal lockscreen layouts are screwed up (Fixed for patch - to be uploaded)
    • Lockscreen Clock digits disappear sometimes. Seems to be a rare occurrence and reports say 3.0.1 had this issue too. (Hard to investigate, never had the problem myself)
      [*]Plugging in certain USB accessories (e.g. Game Pads) causes SystemUI to FC (cause identified, fix to be tested)
      [*]Dialer doesn't respond to haptic vibration intensity settings (Fixed for path - to be uploaded)

    The below bugs are for previous versions of Chameleon.

    3.0 AOKP BETA
    • Transport control view is broken FIXED with 3.0 AOKP Bug Fix Patch
    • Whatever bugs are in XXLSJ

    3.0 BETA
    • No CRT off animation
    • Whatever bugs are in XXLSJ

    2.01 AOSP
    • None

    2.01 AOKP
    Lockscreen
    • Lockscreen: Layout optimisations required when a secure keyguard is in use (e.g. The text "Emergency Dialer" wraps to two lines) (AOKP bug)
    • Lockscreen rotation: Weather text dissapears on orientation change, weather panel is fine (AOKP bug)
    • Lockscreen torch requires holding the power button from screen off to turn on. Of course, the problem is that if you hold the power button for long enough, the phone powers off, making the torch usable for only a very short time :) (AOKP bug)

    Statusbar
    • General: Date does not show - enable weather once to show it, can be disabled after that, the date will still show (AOKP bug)
    • General: When enabling options that require a UI restart (Notification drawer layout, Statusbar font size, Recents window style, Transparency), WiFi indicator looks like it's not connected, even though it is (AOKP bug)
    • Clock: Time in statusbar doesn't always update (AOKP bug)

    ROM Control
    • Lockscreen targets: Target pickers need better refresh handling, don't show default unlock targets (AOKP bug)
    • Lockscreen style: On first run of ROM Control/lockscreen style picking, Honeycomb is shown as the enabled lockscreen even though it's the 2-target ICS losckreen (AOKP bug)

    FAQ

    I'm already on a previous version of Chameleon. Do I need to full wipe to install 3.0.2?
    If you're coming from v2.x, yes, definitely.

    If you're coming from v3.x, you can try a dirty flash, but 3.0.2 has a different telephony provider which WILL cause issues with SMS unless you at least clear data for the provider. To do so, perform the steps in this post.

    I just flashed it and my phone is running like a snail
    As with all new installs, give the media scanner time to do its work and the system to build caches etc before judging the performance of (any) Rom
    55
    How's it going guys?

    Just thought I'd drop in to say hi and that I haven't disappeared forever. Still really busy (I'm getting married in three weeks). Once things have settled down I'll get back to developing the ROM.

    Thanks to all for the keeping the thread/ROM alive, and to everyone supporting new users..
