[ROM] B196 Ultra-Light

Found this on HTCmania

Working very well on my Y300.

Initially wouldn't download apps from Google Play, but did after a restart.

It's already pretty stripped, but I removed the default launcher and stuck on Nova. Everything runs VERY fast, and battery consumption is phenomenal so far, if it's accurate, its used 6% in two hours light use, including wifi, 3g, phone call.

Rom description doesn't say much, but worth a blast if you have the time.

Added mirrors to the files in case you have problems with Mega:

ROM: https://shared.com/r9idqvili0

Super-SU: https://shared.com/vsc70msgz6

NB These aren't my files, just providing a mirror. If there are any issues with this ROM, go to the HTCmania thread and talk to the dev, I can't help!

I downloaded it on my PC and copied it over. Did have to restart it twice though.

If you install the mega app on your phone, copy the url and go into the app and enter the url, that usually works.

I'll upload it somewhere and post the link here.

Can I install this using the system update app on the stock ROM or do I have to use TWRP recovery? Do i have to unlock bootloadet to install it and is it rooted or unrooted?

hey thanks for the info, i put this on my phone and im very impressed, no more vodacrap or huawei stuff i never use.

(first day flashing roms to the phone, after the usual panic about if i bricked it, I tried CM and MUMI and then this one was like a breath of fresh air!)

i was wondering, how do u find this one compared to the slim ROM @ http://www.modaco.com/topic/365199-rom-b196-slim-v1/

cheers:)

Very similar to slim to be honest. Once you've tweaked it to your requirements there's not a lot in it. This feels maybe slightly faster.

Threw a wobbly on me after about 15 hours of use, went really laggy and needed a reboot. Wasn't doing anything unusual.

Ok, just blasted this. First impressions.... fast, smooth. Not sure if I like the inverted notification tray and settings. There is a display bug in settings where airplane mode has a skinned switch and the rest don't. Aside from that, seems excellent so far.

Update. Works eel, but very heavy battery drain. 20%+ on standby on an hour. Back to Lunatic for me, best of what's currently out there.

You should try Shockey`s B196 if you didn`t , it seemed best from my point of view. Bugless compared to lunatic pandora and faster after all the junk is removed.

shockeys is a good rom .. but nit as fast as Lunatic. And the only bug I found in lunatic was the gallery edit, which is easily resolved...

Update. Battery nowhere near as good as Lunatic or even slim. Shame, but 15% in an hour of light use is double the consumption of the others.
