P A C man ALL IN 1


Check the Q&A Thread for PAC-specific questions! :D



ROM INTEL

Here we go then, This is the PAC-man AIO (All-in-one) ROM, for the Xperia TX. Since the TX isnt that different from the T, I compiled it, asked a tester to test it, and here it is! A big shoutout to @Rycon33 who did some extensive testing on the ROM for me.

I'm searching two more testers to test updates before releasing it into the wild. If you want to do so, please shoot me a PM :)
These testers will get the ROM, they will test it, and after the release to the public will take place.


PAC is a combination of the three biggest ROMs here at XDA. Paranoid Android, Android Open Kang Project and CyanogenMod. It features CM profiles, PA's Hybrid Engine, and ROM Control by AOKP. Everything!
A main complaint under the developers whom originally developed their features about 'mashup' ROMs, is that they are messy, and the different features aren't integrated as well as the individual projects. PAC was the first of all 'mashup' ROMs and has the best integration of them all. It took a LOT of work of thinking behind to merge the frameworks in the right order. These are not just your daily git cherry-pick developers trying to pull money off of XDA ;)
PAC-man has a solid team with good developers and device maintainers, bringing you this totally awesome ROM. :victory:

If you'd like to support me or the PAC developers, be sure to drop them a thanks / beer!

A: https://github.com/ParanoidAndroid/android_vendor_pa/commit/e99a9b192386ca186dfe5a52126ce6fbe7da79a5 - or grab one of the latest ParanoidAndroid ROMs and sideload /system/app/paranoidpreferences.apk

Awesome mate, many TX users will surely be happy.:)

Though still many things to iron-out(see the mentioned bugs and some you need to tell the dev), people will still be quite satisfied with the ROM as I did.

I just want to reiterate that during testing I didn't check if the voice calls are fine(lol it should be the basic thing to test).:D

Though I think even at this early stage, it's good that everyone gets to test it and it will definitely help the dev more because more feedbacks are going to flow.

So fellow TX users, flash it and give feedback.:)

I've been running it for the past few hours and everything seems alright.
The headphones don't seem to register but calls do work and everything else seems to be fine.
Keep up the great work, glad to see support for the TX as well. ;)

Bluetooth is kinda spotty so I can't accurately say if it works. It worked for a little bit with my radio but then it stopped working and hasn't worked since. :p

There's also a reboot whenever it tries to install something over 5mb's sometimes. I'm not entirely sure why but it happens whenever it feels like it.

Vibration does not work (already been listed) and the battery is draining kinda fast. Not entirely sure as I haven't fully cycled it but it has been kinda grr from what I've seen.

Also the touch screen calibration seems to be a tad bit off. I often find myself pressing something else when I directly press what I intended. Its not bad to the breaking point but sometimes I have to take a moment to think about what I'm actually pressing.

Now this looks interesting :)

Will give this a try once i backup all my stuff :)

UPDATE : my stock rom was rooted, but bootloader was still locked. so i got my bootloader unlocked, and flashed the pacman's boot.img. after booting into CWM, it says that "E: Unable to mount/data" Tried to format /data , /cache, /system , /dalvik-cache, all the same.

Tried TWRP, but also no bueno. Display was cut into half, and also got the same error as CWM. And due to that, I kept getting bootloops :(

Good news guys, I've been testing the latest build(2-June) and some issues has been fixed, e.g. still no random reboots here, creating lockscreen shortcuts is Ok now, and many more.:)

Though some minor issues is still there like no vibration and headset/earphone not detected.

But overall, ROM is really very fluid and smooth. Plus we can use those awesome themes available around. Check out those new themes like flatron theme and simplex theme. They are simply awesome.:)

EDIT: and we can enter recovery now(from OFF state) by pressing volume button. last time we can go recovery only when we're coming from OS.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll give it another try ;)
