Hi All,

 

sorry but could please upload the Switch.S4.Bet1.part1 file somewhere else? I really tried during several ocasions to download it and it's not coming... all I get is an error that states I don't have enough room on my computer, although I really have a couple hundred GBytes free on the destination drive and almost 100 GB free on the main (system) drive. I tried using Firefox/Chrome ... same result

 

Thank you for understanding

Patcher does not share data AFAIK. It dual boots 2 (3?) ROMs but each has it's own set of data.

Switch shares data so what you have in TW you also find in GPe.

P.s. You also have to consider Patcher was started using inspiration from using Paul's Switch and came at a much later date.

I believe it does actually.. Not sure about this though.. I'll post a link to it and you guys can check it out

 

Edit: According to the Dev all internal SD data gets shared, and in one of the earlier posts he said it was easy to implement data share so you didn't have to dl apps twice but he wasn't sure about app settings and such (you can just back those up though..) I haven't read much of the thread, just thought I'd share it.. Lots of people seem to be disappointed because Paul hasn't been updating this and some of them fell ripped off.. I know this probably won't make up for it but at least you'll get what you want.

Could anyone pm me with a link to this "patcher" project ? Really disappointed here, joined his club with silver membership and thought this is something really amazing, but it seem's Paul discontinued it...

http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2447534 there you go.. (That's the link for patcher in case anybody wants to check it out).

'' [Patcher] came at a much later date.'' That is true, shame on me for not checking the dates before (I actually thought it was the same thread I had seen on XDA a while ago), but you're wrong about what inspired it, Patcher was inspired by another XDA project, and that one was released before Switch.

Good morning all!

Firstly, apologies for the lack of updates - I've been busy working on a number of things, but that includes the next update for Switch! Switch has always been about not just a single release for a device (or a couple of devices), but also about enabling the Switch concept for a wider audience. With that in mind, i've been porting the internal changes for Switch to use the Xposed Framework, a task that is about two thirds done (and has presented some interesting challenges!).

What does this mean? Primarily it means that the ROM(s) used by Switch can be updated completely independently of Switch itself, which means faster updates when new releases come out, but also the ability to use other custom ROMs in Switch. Which i'm sure you'll agree will be awesome. :)

I'm aware that a GPe OTA is now available and i'll be incorporating this into a new Beta shortly, as well as updating the main ROM as required.

Rest assured, more awesomeness is coming! Thanks for your support. :)

I just read the OP and Paul actually called it a "unique concept".. At least be honest man :/


If there's something else that does the same, please share! :)

Sure! http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2447534 it's called Patcher and it's available on XDA. Obviously it doesn't do the exact same thing but maybe you can get something out of it, and improve on Switch in a way that actually makes it better and 'needed'. (and about the being honest comment -> your project was actually released before the one I mentioned [my bad lol] but there was an old project that did the same but it was just too dangerous and complicated..)

The unique aspect of Switch is obviously the data retention which Patcher doesn't do so...

Hey Paul,

 

When can we expect beta 3? Or firmware updates via ota. I'd like to have the latest GPe firmware, haha.

I'm in urgent need of help, I installed it on my phone and it worked just fine but when I tried switching back it didn't work. I turned it off and now it won't boot at all, in recovery or anything.

 

Any help please!

Well i'll be damn......d

Its booting in GPe after i did the following in Philz_touch recovery mode:
1. go to mounts and storage
2. format cahce and format system
3. reboot recovery
4. install zip beta1 (samsung rom)
5. reboot recovery
6. install zip beta2 (gpe rom)
7. Boot phone

You are now in samsung rom and use the switch!

Also if you want to udate (OTA) then you have to reboot in recovery and flash the zipfile found in /ota/download and reboot

Well that did the trick it now booted into GPE after 2 hours of flashing. Thanks

 

Edit* I should mention I tried TWRP and then gone Phillz recovery however, after saying yes to not alow flashing of rstock ecovery, it has broken me booting into GPE. So now it just keeps booting into TW rom.

 

 

Edit2* Just did the same steps above and all working again, GPE has some issues, no lock screen works, quick settings doesn't work, there are a few other issues, but the TW works fine so far.

 

Looking forward to an updated version of this, it is really is a great idea.
