Installed MoDaCo SWITCH earlier and it's working just fine, might be just me but sense seems laggy, especially when scrolling on blinkfeed.

no more laggy than the stock rom always has been.

thanks for the link Paul, I'm preparing to flash now :) I haven't bothered to flash any roms on my One, so let's see how this beauty does.

I am now experiencing the issue where I try to switch to GE(having disabled the Fast Boot option already) and it would boot again to Sense. Tried this 3 times, will be testing a couple of other things before even calling this an "issue".


Please run this adb command. I am currently investigating.

Ok I received an invite for this this morning but I just realized I probably should not try to flash this lol. I am using the Sprint HTC One was that invite in error? So far I see no indication that this will work on a cdma HTC One. In fact all indicators that it uses the GE version of aosp to switch to correct? My guess is it would ruin the partition tables on my phone maybe the Sprint vesion of the One should be mentioned in the op with a donot flash warning?


Apologies, it is indeed not CDMA compatible.

It should be a little quicker in fact. ;)

I just felt lucky, punk ;)
So I flashed beta1 & beta4 over my existing 4.2.2 (2.24) ROM, without wiping.
And: it works! not a single force-close, everything just rocks. So far I've only completed the first boot on Sense and one on GPE, but it looks very promising.
I might go on with some custom-kernel-tests tomorrow :)

Beta 5 update zip released - flash over the top of Beta 1, 2 or 3 when in Sense mode. No wipe required. This adds com.android.providers.settings to the exclude list to maintain unique ringtones etc. between switches.

That's good news! :) It is designed to be dirty flash tolerant.

For custom kernels, you need to put the kernel boot.img in /system/SWITCH/sense/boot/boot.img or /system/SWITCH/gpe/boot/boot.img and then perform a Switch to activate.

I played around with that this afternoon already, but broke WiFi and wasn't able to get back to Sense, as the specific kernel also needs some modules, i.e. it contains /system/* files. I also unpacked those in the directories, but somehow it didn't work out.
Will keep you posted...

Ok a few questions.

First, Android always has to upgrade every app whenever I flash a beta update. Is this preventable or just part of Android's framework?

Second, will this be upgraded to Android 4.3 for the GPE? Or do both Sense and Android have to have 4.3 for it to work?

Finally, I've noticed a battery drain on my phone. Certainly, Android has battery problems already. Is it natural for Switch to take up a lot more battery? Have been Switch-ing a lot and upgrading betas. Did you notice any significant battery loss? Might be just because of everything going on at one right now.

Thanks!

Only if my update has changed the framework, which has only happened for one update so far.

Second, will this be upgraded to Android 4.3 for the GPE? Or do both Sense and Android have to have 4.3 for it to work?


It remains to be seen, but hopefully the two can coexist.

There won't be any additional drain for Switch, it's probably just because you're using it a lot setting it up, rebooting etc. etc. :)

umm, is it just me or the home button does not work in GPe after beta 5 flash? it vibrates and all, and double click works, but not the actual single press. Perhaps it's a conflict with sense, is there some way to wipe settings app because it has this option disabled in settings...

other than that, I must say this is exceptional work, huge thanks to Paul! Perhaps there is another adfree member coming ;)

Performing a Switch will use a fair amount of power, more than a normal re-boot. Once the beta has settled down you will only Switch every now and then so battery won't be as big an issue.

Hmm, sounds like it's just you unfortunately, it's OK for me. You can delete /data/data/com.android.settings* using root maybe?

Not much extra actually happens during a Switch though so it shouldn't be too much more than a regular reboot... it's designed to be quick and not intensive.

Same with the home button in the GE ROM, plus I can't open the quick settings tab

deleting did not help, and settings stick as they were unfortunately after a reboot...
