WETA V20 TELEGRAM CHANNEL



WETA Update notification only channel - Update notifications

This here is my personal setup and thought i'd share. Usually i test extensively before releasing to public, but if you do find something detrimental to the usage of your device that is either Force Closing or simply not working, let me know and i will in turn inform whether that is something i will tend to.

WETA is made for Music geeks like me, its main focus is stability and Audio. It is Based off latest firmware currently, and will always be using the most up to date firmware base.

This ROM is built from stock system images, decompiled and modded by me.

V4.0 (T-Mobile)
Ive scooped 200mb of bloat/LGApps out of this version, the result is a pretty snappy system. Rather than having the extreme debloat script, im going to start uploading the rom zip in the debloated manner. There is a new 2.0 LGApps aroma zip on the Download page. This isnt for the faint hearted or LG app fanboy. LG Message and LG Music are gone. Along with almost everything LG. I rely heavily on google apps hence why i went this direction. See post #2 on XDA for the list of removed apps. WETA 3.3 is going to sit there until people arent so scared to use 4.0.
Be sure to wipe Dalvik and Caches.

V4.1 (T-Mobile)
Added V4A XHifi option
- This mod works great as a standalone eq. I am preferring using the equalizer in this in conjunction with V4A FX. (turn off fire equalizer in V4A FX)
Added WETA mods Substratum toolkit theme
- Has all the nav bar and status bar heights, Nav button themes, some other tweaks. Install Substratum from the play store to use.
wetamods sub theme also has some added features i didnt state.
- hide swipe to unlock text on lockscreen
- Disable All rotations (WETA default is to allow all rotations)
- Screen on when unplug (WETA default is screen off on unplug)
- **experimental, "theworks" this activates a couple of things in framework i noticed, referring to cpuboost for animations, test it, see if it does anything.
- Rounded Recents cards, some like this, some dont. Im liking at the moment
- A bunch more Nav button themes.

V4.2 (T-Mobile)
Separated Audio mods so they can be installed independantly from each other
Updated WETA mods sub theme with new WETA nav bar (hollow)
Updated WETA mods sub theme with some status bar signal icons

V4.2.1 (H918 + US996)
Updated forced high impedance mod

V4.2.2 (H918 + US996)
Added immersive mode options to WETA Reboot app
- Using immersive status bar, forces the status bar up into the signboard as default. To swipe to other signboard pages you need to swipe down from the top first to activate normal status bar.

V4.3 (H918 + US996)
Introduced ARISE Sound System Deuteronomy 2.4 as audio engine option
- Selecting ARISE (under WETA Audio selection) will install arise instead of WETA Audio drivers.
There will also be another selection box after that gives you addon options.
- ICE Config selection will popup if ICE selected

V4.4 (H918 + US996 + VS995)
Added Dolby Digital Plus option
Updated ARISE to 2.74a
Dolby Atmos DAX and DAP updated
Added 6th ICE Config
Added ICE Presets

V4.5 (H918 + US996 + VS995)
Completely customized Second Screen Status Bar
- Added 3minit battery and clock in second screen option to aroma
This activates the custom SS status bar. To use you must set the "show time while content is shown" option in second screen settings. Then you need to activate Status bar immersive mode in weta reboot.
*Be aware, although you can certainly flash 3minit battery and clock to both second screen and the normal status bar, you will most probably have a mismatch in sizing.
*Using a mixture of potato clock on normal status bar and using 3minit batt and clock on second screen is an option.

Hiding Status Bar Icons

Some of you may have experienced or seen the SystemUI tuner in most other devices firmware. I myself, when shifting to the V20 from Nexus and Pixel devices, have missed this quite a bit. Below is a known method to hide status bar icons reasonably easily until i implement a method into the ROM.

Using a terminal emulator...

type; "su" enter
then type; "settings put secure icon_blacklist (your selection here)"

"your selection here" is a list of the icons you want to hide. They all need to be added at the same time, with a comma separating each option. Each time you run this command it clears out the last entry. So say you wanted to hide the alarm, bluetooth and Cell Data icon.. youd be typing "settings put secure icon_blacklist alarm_clock,bluetooth,mobile".

To restore to stock, type "settings delete secure icon_blacklist".

Below is a list of commands to add to the icon list.

cast
hotspot
bluetooth
zen
alarm_clock
managed_profile
wifi
ethernet
mobile
airplane

Possible causes for common issues
App FC.. If you have several force closes of misc apps, you most likely have bad data relating to themes. Uninstall or delete all themes and theme apps. This includes LG themes and Substratum. Substratum has a theme cache which if not wiped can cause a lot of issues.

Google play services crash.. I haven't seen this is a long time. Though if it happens to you its usually related to Webview. If you have uninstalled Chrome, then that is your problem. Simply dont uninstall chrome if you dont know what you are doing.

--->

How to install...

Use a method to install TWRP and Flash SuperSU first. Get this done on a stock first, and boot into it to make sure you are stock rooted. Also read as much as you can about rooting the V20.
I use TWRP so can only recommend that recovery, but i am sure you will be fine with others if available.
Make sure WETA zip file is in your internal SD card, and head to recovery and flash the rom zip file. Reboot.
ENCRYPTED DEVICES - You need to decrypt your device to use this ROM.

--->

system and boot.img retrieval

I will only accept stock system.img. this means you need to be stock rooted, not on another stock ROM off XDA. Thanks.

In terminal emulator or adb shell. Type "su" to get root permissions..then

dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/system of=/sdcard/weta_system.img

...And do kernel too....

dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/boot of=/sdcard/weta_boot.img
