Used this rom for a day and i like it so far. Been a CM/Liquidsmooth user for a while and this is just a breath of fresh air.

So far so good! Love the rom.

As a sidenote, it fixed a long unresolved issue. People wouldnt hear me, nor would i hear them, unless speaker was activated. May it be this modem or rom, it made me believe it was not the hardware at fault.

I'm running apex too and I noticed the same.
Plus the notification bar doesn't show after booting. only after you pull it down manually.

Any solution for the redraw and notification issue?
can this be a memory management issue cause I also noticed that the phone slows down badly when you run a memory hogging app like Google+

These are the only issues I noticed, room runs like a charm otherwise!

I fixed the redraw by changing the dalvik.vm.heapsize in build.prop file from 128 -> 192.

Lol i forgot to install the camera, how can i get it back? Lol

Download it from HERE and copy it to /system/app with any root explorer application. Also you need to change the permissions according to the other apps in the same folder.

Hi j0ep0 ,

Thanks for your last update (XXDLJ4), yes I am a little late :D

Just a thought... I think the Aroma installer suks a little with your ROM and it moves away from the base as kristofpetho mades it... It's your work and it's your ROM, I'm OK with this...


Maybe it's a little work for you to provide two or three version of your ROM but I like the concept of the choice of three different ROM's without Aroma Installer.

About 540 Mb for a stripped ROM... (Yes, I understand how works the Aroma Installer :D).

Some tweaks in the Aroma Installer are useless and in double (check the "adtweaks" folder, if you need some helps or advise feel free to PM about your tweaks), some addons would be in a separate package, no need to make them in Aroma Installer... No need Aroma Installer...:D

Two version of your ROM is fine I think an "extreme light" and a "light" ROM would be fine, the goal is a light ROM, so...

Aroma thing is not compatible with the concept of the ROM..., provide some flashable ZIP's for some apps missing and for some tweaks->USER-> XDA->Android Development and Hacking->Android Software and Hacking General... No need of all these tweaks in this ROM, please.

Provide a good basic Sammy's ROM and let the choice for the user in a separate package, not in Aroma... it's not the same thing. The Aroma is well done but who really knows what he is doing in Aroma choice...????

Make youre ROM, kernel, modem, "RAM management", etc... can be downloded and flashabled aside without Aroma...

I can not explain too ... :(, hard sometimes

In any case this XXDLJ4 seems a great base, a little clean-up in the ZIP and it's fine (deleted the Aroma folder :D) .
Smooth and fast, no issues till now ;)
But please mate, keep the the basic concept ;), not an Aroma thing like all the ROM here...

    HyperLight ROM Series

    Details on the latest 1.4.1 version, check here

    Combining the work of two highly recommended XDA members/developers, wanam and kristofpetho, my intention is to provide you with a clean, fast Samsung based ROM.

The base ROM is 199MB (Slim) or 215MB (Compatible), you can add tweaks, samungs applications or 3rd party applications with the Aroma installer.The Aroma installer lets you add addditional tweaks or applications wihtout reinstalling the whole ROM. Note: Aroma installer available in 1.3.1, not in 1.4.

    If you want to use any part of my work, ask my permission first! Please respect the authors of the included mods and contact them if you want use their work. If you like my work, hit the Thanks button. If you really like my work, consider buying me a beer or whisky with the Donate button.

    HyperLight 1.4.1 Released

    Considering the amount of time available, I'm doing a non-Aroma release for 1.4. It's built on the latest XXELKC Official firmware from Samsung. All the usual tweaks are there. Seeing the responses regarding the theme, there is a normal (250MB) and a themed (238MB) version.

    - XXELKC Base
    - 23 Toggles
    - Loud Volume
    - Modified brightness
    - Multiwindows (full control by LegendK95)
    - Pop-Up browser
    - Startup tweaks (zipalign, SQlite defrag)
    - Build.prop tweaks (usual Hyper** series)
    - All wanamlite mods

    - Optimized system files
    - HyperNote theme
    - Grey add-ons

    Thanks again for your support! These reactions and the amount of download of the ROM reminds me that a new version has to be made. Today and tomorrow are very big (and busy) days for me privately, so probably this weekend will be HyperLight time again.
    You people really know how to brighten someone's day. Again I appreciate your responses. Been busy and had some annoying issues with the script. Therefore release is delayed a bit, but I'm happy to offer you the release candidate for HyperLight 1.2. Based on XXDLJ4, the ROM is updated and issues like transparency are fixed and the home button doesn't close apps when the screen is turned off. But there are other major changes due to the new aroma installer. Offering one download file, you can still select your flavour, kernel and basic tweaks like Supercharger and BestMultitasking.

    The aroma config was built with support from Turkbey and wanam, who should receive credits for it. You can choose wipe options (under testing) and an optional EFS backup. Also, the most requested add-ons are added in the zip, so you don't have to install seperate zip files anymore. All this results in a larger ZIP (~500MB) but if you choose your desired flavour and install no add-ons, you'll end up with a stripped, lightweight ROM.

    New are the Advanced tweaks based on PimpMyRom by Androguide.fr, I've preselected some tweaks but feel free to choose your own. Watch it with the multitasking/memory tuning tweaks as they might interfere with SuperCharger or BestMultiTasking. Also you can select the best config for GPS based on uour country, credits again go to Androguide.fr.

    Finally, I've added some theme options with support from raubkatze. Some of his mods like grey central clock, transparant pull down, grey icons are integrated in the ROM. Nothing is forced, you can also choose to use stock wanamlite look or add your own theme, e.g. Android-GX or JKay Deluxe.

    Replies are welcome, but please do a full wipe/factory reset when experiencing FC's. I've tested upgrading from 1.1 and clean install, it can happen that upgrading from older versions like 0.8 results in boot loops of FC's. If that's the case, a full wipe should fix it. Special thanks to Nexx for beta testing!
