I'm looking for some custom Jelly Bean 4.3 Roms based on official Samsung Rom for my i9100, so it would have Touchwiz also.Currently i keep switching between CM10.2 (4.3.1) and Wanamlite 14.7 (4.1.2).
I like Wanamlite just because it uses the Samsung Touchwiz interface i like so much. Other than that, any other stock Rom, rooted and debloated would do just about the same.What i like about CM10.2 and cyanogenmod in general is the speed and stability the Rom feels like. Also, the latest 4.3 Roms gave me infinitely great battery lives compared to any other JB Rom i tried since. And judging from other posts and reviews on the internet, Google worked their magic on 4.3 for small batteries run through the day (almost double the life of 4.1.2 or even worst 4.2.x). So it seems the perfect combo for me would be a 4.3 custom with TW.
I'm a Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 user and I wanted to know how to run touchwiz in tablet mode. Do i have to decompile SecLauncher2.apk and edit the code so that it becomes accurate when using with landscape mode or is there an xposed module. Or do i edit build.prop file? I don't want to install other launchers or get ParanoidAndroid.
I am a galaxy s2 gt-i9100 user and i use touchwiz launcher in landscape mode. I have edited my launcher to look like a tablet for my s2 but i wanted to know how to hide the dock from the launcher or move the app drawer icon on top right or bottom right. Is there a way to do this? Also i dont want to install a different rom or launcher.
i have a galaxy s2 gt-i9100 and i wanted to know how to hide Apps and Widgets tab in the app drawer and also make the app drawer fully transparent like the galaxy s5? I decompiled seclauncher2 but i dont know what file to edit
I had an encrypted I9100 on Cyanogenmod 9. After a factory reset I installed Cyanogemod 10.1. Everything runs smoothly, but about 12gb of my internal sd space was misplaced during the installation and is now missing. Only 2 gb is currently available. /sdcard cannot be mounted, something about /sdcard/android_secure
I ran some commands in adb, and the space is still there, but it needs to be replaced / repartitioned somehow.
df -h Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on tmpfs 395.6M 48.0K 395.6M 0% /dev /dev/block/mmcblk0p7 98.4M 87.0M 11.4M 88% /cache ~ # mount /data
I have a Galaxy SII running Samsung 4.1.2 ROM rooted and deodexed, but the /system folder only has a limited amount of space even though I have 16GB internal memory, is there a way to sacrifice some usable memory to get more /system memory so I can add some stuff to /sysem/app etc?
I'd want root access is to install Titanium Backup or a firewall to freeze/block access to a certain Chinese Android Market app. The app in question sends out a notification to feature new Chinese apps everytime the phone is given internet access and there are no options to disable it within the app itself. And since it came with the phone, it cannot be uninstalled, and of course, it restarts immediately if stopped.
One-clicks do not work-- they all result in directory/permission errors. For example, superoneclick will hang on step 7 and doomlord's method would reboot the phone without making any changes.
It would seem my only resort would be to use a different ROM, but there are no ROMs for this phone. Of course there are methods using similar MTK 6573 phones which are usually just clones in different casings, but I've read that using non-specific ROMs will result in a brick as there are slight differences.So how should I go about rooting this phone? What are the risks of using a non-specific ROM?
I'm on gs2 I9100 cyanogenmod 9 and can't find a solution to encrypt internal databases like sms, call logs, contacts... ( so in /data).
No problems with documents in container created by luksmanager. But i wonder is it possible to make a sort of preboot script who mount after correct passphrase a luks container who is symlinked in /data ? Because android ics built in encryption installation stop at beginning.
Is there now new method or app to encrypt full or partial phone? Maybe new encryption function or improvement in JB? Pattern/face unlock fixed?
When I got my phone at the end of last year I rooted it using a Chain-Fire kernel - v 4.2, I think. After flashing, it worked perfectly, since when I have flashed the old bootloader to get my USB Jig working to remove the yellow triangle and flashed a patch again to allow the USB Jig to reset the binary counter.
I have very much wanted to install and get the new Sky Go application working.
What I had to do was flash the Stock kernel for my Stock Rom - I have never messed with my Rom - it is Gingerbread 2.3.4 in a CPW phone here in the UK.
Doing the flash and installing Voodoo OTA (to temporarily hide my root) has been enormously successful
Now then to my query....
The original Chain-Fire mod v 4.2 installed CWM.
After of course cancelling the "hide root" function to show my phone as rooted once more, I went to do a backup, using CWM but it refuses to work. It says my kernel needs v 5.0. Obviously the Stock Rom I flashed to get Sky Go working has thrown CWM some what.
I have downloaded Rom Manager from the Market but this seems not to work either - it starts to work (reboots) but then halts with the following messages: -
E : failed to verify whole-file signature
E : signature verification failed Installation aborted
What I would like is some way of installing a backup previously made before flashing the Stock kernal and also to make a fresh backup now.
For the last 5 days I am experiencing extreme battery drainage(Android OS nearly 100% Battery Usage ). Back when it began I did not install anything suspicious or battery consuming software. I never go full screen brightness, and all unnecessary apps are either deleted or disabled. I have tried Factory Resetting, Wiping all possible caches, systems, internal/external SD cards. I even tried manually deleting all folders from my PC. I have tried installing custom kernels, roots and even stock ROM. Right now I'm with stock ROM with CF root.
Phone state: Model number- GT-i9100; Android 4.0.3; Baseband v. i9100XXLPS, Kernel v. 3.0.15-i9100XXLPQ-CL223505 se,infra@SEP-94 #3; Built number IML74K.XWLP7. And here is what I get from the battery report :
I have tried full discharge and charge to 100% and calibration. Even cleared the battery stats It just doesn't work. I am using Nova Launcher. Even after going back to TwLauncher I am still getting 98% Android OS usage. I don't use Data Mode and Wi-Fi isn't always on. When charged and calibrated at 100% at 21:00pm, in the morning at 9:00am phone battery is completely empty and shut down.
I'd like to use the stock ROM, with a nice battery stable kernel & still with Nova Launcher. NOTE: This is still happening with a NEW battery.
Recently, my phone is leaking power in a crazy speed. (i9100 4.0.3). Before sleep, I turned off bluetooth, wifi, 3G, gps, all motion sensors. Switched it to flight mode. After about 7-hour sleep, 10% battery was lost. This happened for the last few month.
I installed DX BatteryBooster, from its monitor I learnt that almost all the power went to Android System, if click at it, it says included packages:
Remote Device Management Service. Software update Video Maker
im a galaxy s2 gt-i9100 user and how do i make my status bar thinner as it is taking up a bit of space?? Do i decompile systemui.apk or seclauncher2.apk? And what line is it to edit? I do not want to change my lcd density as touchwiz becomes weird and i do not want to install a 3rd party launcher.
How to root galaxy s2 i9100 official jelly bean without using odin or computer. I mean direct installation of cwm and superuser through custom recovery. i want soft root only for using titanium backup and other root apps not for installing custom roms. just a soft root without changing the kernel.
I just got my hands on a new S3 its an amazing phone and I love it. However, I cant stand Samsung's UI "Touchwiz" I tried looking here on how I can remove it but couldn't find anything. is it possible for me to run vanilla Android and remove Samsung's UI?
I love the Samsung camera app, and it works much better than the stock camera app on AOKP on my SII I777, but I understand my ROM needs to be Touchwiz based to run it...Can I install Touchwiz on top of my AOKP ROM to install the official Samsung camera app.
I'm not sure what I must've done. But nevertheless my stock Touchwiz firmware from my Galaxy S3 is gone. I must've deleted it while doing a factory reset, because my play store was acting up.
I would like to flash back to stock Touchwiz on my phone but when I looked for it on ROM Manager and in recovery all my previous backups were gone. So I was wondering if there is a way to get my stock firmware back or maybe even retrieve it from my phone from someplace it could be hiding.
Some more info: I am running CyanogenMod 10.1.3 and rooted with clockwork mod. This is on my Samsung Galaxy S3. And I am with T-Mobile on a contract in the United States.
Any Touchwiz Xposed modules that allow me to get my TW notification shade to more closely resemble the Nexus/stock experience? And if not, at least make everything smaller so I can fit more in the screen.
I had a Samsung Nexus S which started to have this strange Android OS battery drain some weeks before the OTA ICS came in. I read thousands of forum posts to try tons of stuff to solve the problem without any success.
I then decided three weeks ago that it's obviously time to get a new phone so that I bought the Galaxy SIII (int). Strangely I still have great problems with my battery life which brought me here to ask some pros now.
Phone: Samsung Galaxy SIII (int) ROM: StockROM (4.1.1) and CM10 Nightly Carrier: German E-Plus
What is the most noticeable about the battery drain is, that it appears in standby (over night) in both ROMs, Stock and CM10 likewise with some minor differences. In 10h standby (Wifi on, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC all off, only few widgets, AquaMail on push) battery goes down from 100% to 70%.
After all, I tested both ROMs in the same situation over night and the bettery drain is pretty comparable (see the screenshots).
What I already tried (in both ROMs):
- disable all Google Maps autostarts and disable all location services
- disable apps like Gtalk, G+ etc.
- uninstall AquaMail
without any effect on the standby battery drain...
I own a Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100, when i bought it (2nd hand) it was running on 4.1.2 version, now I updated it to 4.3 with Cyanogenmode, but I don't like that it doesn't have the original look... need clean 4.3 ROM and a good guide to install it? I don't want any other signatures....
