ParanoidJelly - ParanoidAndroid 2.81 - Hybrid UI ROM for the ZTE Skate - Android 4.1.2 - JellyBean

This is my build of ParanoidAndroid JellyBean for Skate.
It's the descendant of my previous CM10 release - OctoJelly.
I decided to incorporate ParanoidAndroid framework since I find it
very useful regarding UI capabilities and I prefer it over plain CM10.

This version of ParanoidAndroid is the latest that's based on CM framework.
Paranoid team abandoned further development on top of CM framework and switched
to AOSP framework. I might take a look at the new development as soon as it settles down a little (still chaotic).

OctoJelly is not going to be maintained separately anymore, so please don't
ask for it
. If you prefer plain CM10 UI; I predefined a "Stock UI" profile in
Paranoid preferences (Launch) which can be used to turn off Hybrid mode.
From now on, this is the ROM I am going to make further improvements to until
I move on to some new device (might happen soon).

This ROM is for advanced users not whining about all the well known problems.
Also check out the WTF-shooting section below.

Known issues
- Camera flash not working - it's unlikely to be fixed at all (at least I am not going to try anymore after couple of failed attempts)
so please, don't ask for it over and over

- Voice input - won't work on our device since it needs libs that are available for armv7 only. (VoiceInput for GoogleNow works)

Paranoid profiles
I've prepared a set of 4 preconfigured paranoid profiles which can be used to quickly switch UI type. They are accessible
via Paranoid Settings / Launch menu.
- Stock UI - use this one to turn off Hybrid mode and thus get Stock 240 DPI UI
- Optimal UI - optimal parameters for Skate's screen size - this one is pre-set as default
- Phablet UI - a bit smaller than Optimal UI - hybrid between Phone and Tablet mode
- Tablet UI - the smallest

- Boot into clockworkmod
- Backup your current ROM (optional but highly recommended)
- Wipe Data / factory reset
- Wipe cache
- Advanced / Wipe dalvik cache
- Mounts & Storage / format system (just to be sure)
- install zip from SD card - choose ROM zip
- install zip from SD card - choose Gapps zip
- reboot

Upgrade instructions - without wiping data
- Use Paranoid settings to backup your Paranoid settings
- Download ROM, Gapps ZIPs to your SD card
- Boot into ClockworkMod
- Backup your current version (optional but recommended)
- Wipe cache
- Advanced / wipe dalvik cache
- Mounts&storage / format system
- install zip from SD card - choose ROM zip
- install zip from SD card - choose Gapps zip
- reboot
- Use Paranoid settings to restore your Paranoid settings
- if you experience stability problems or other undesired behaviour, go for fresh install!!!

WTF-shooting
I can't install apps from Play store. They show as incompatible. WTF??
1) Go to settings / Accounts and remove your Google account
2) Launch Play store and enter your Google account details when prompted

I am experiencing massive battery drain and data usage. WTF??
This is Google backup in effect. If you let it turned on during first phone setup
it is now trying to download/upload your phone's data from/to Google servers.
Either wait for the operation to complete or simply turn off Google backup in
Settings / Bakup and restore

I can't see some Google apps like Play store, Gmail even if I installed gapps package. WTF??
Your system partition might be too small to run this ROM. You need at least 200MB space
on system partition. Use TPT Helper app from play store to repartition phone's internal memory.
Skate_v2b layout is recommended. WARNING: TPT process completely wipes all data from internal memory.
Data on SD card remain untouched.

I am experiencing frequent reboots and/or apps force closing. WTF??
Blame aliens and go for clean install with full wipes.

I installed this ROM but neither Camera flash nor FM radio is working. WTF??
You gotta be kidding, right?

Device tree: https://github.com/C.../tree/jellybean
Proprietaries: https://github.com/C.../tree/jellybean

Respect and credits go mainly to Tilal and KonstaT for doing all the dirty
work to bring JellyBean to ZTE devices and the whole androidarmv6 project team
, Paranoid Android team, and all the others
involved. Special thanks to daemond for great patches solving the remaining issues (FM Radio, sound routing, HW VSYNC, video playback)

@C3C0
Great work on this. You've taken the pressure off me to release a final cfx2. :D

Would it be possible to update your repos/add patches for the things you did to get WiFi tethering working. I've seen the kernel patch and according to that there are 3 others.

Cheers and great work again :D

@tilal
I pushed my current device config to github just now.
Commit dealing with native wifi tethering is here:
https://github.com/C...0226958f679cb1d

Yeah and maybe one important note: check wifi FW_PATH in your device config.
It is possible you have them switched.
Correct is
WIFI_DRIVER_FW_PATH_STA := "/system/etc/fw_4319.bin"
WIFI_DRIVER_FW_PATH_AP := "/system/etc/fw_4319_apsta.bin"

I do recommend it for daily use although you always have to expect the unexpected. ;) (this applies to all non-gingerbread ROMs)
I run it for couple of days without any major issues and video playback is fine, too.

Hi, is there any way to get Trebuchet launcher? I love its simplicity. I know that Nova is nearly same and better but I like Trebuchet more :) .
HAPPY NEW YEAR :) :)
