[ROM][4.4.4][ALL] SlimKat 9.1 UNOFFICIAL [29/12/2015]

Recommended Posts

Why?

Because the sensor on the touchscreen has to work when the screen is on standby.

Great idea. My powerbutton isnt working that great anymore and i dont want to use the volume buttons that often. Would be a great idea!

 

i found this app on google play https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=xzy.android.shakelight

It works really fine, now i wakw my screen simply by touching proximity sensor.

maybe it's good for your slimkat?

You have a very nice feature in SlimKat for remapping keys.... the way you said will drain your battery

This function wakes phone without using home or volume button?

Well, no.. But you can power off it with long press action keys, for waking up the phone you need atleast the volume keys.. Other ways drains the battery (tap to wake, proximity sensor etc)

Hello chil360.

Plesse can you add the new KGSL Driver from Moddingg33k in your kernel?

Thanks

I've spend quite a few hours on creating 2 patches for upgrading the Y300's kernel KGSL drivers:

They are cherry-picked and merged from MSM's KitKat-2.7.stable branch as of 2013-05-21 (didn't have more time to go on).

Have fun cool.png (@ chil )

EDIT: that was like 12h of work ... waste of time IMHO, since I don't play games on the Y300 anyway laugh.png (experimental update of sληορsιs with patched kgsl driver -> http://www.modaco.com/topic/372447-kernel-y300g510-stock-huawei/#entry2225391 - does NOT work with this ROM - )

Newest version 2.7.1.. it didnt work with the previous ver(it was an old version, i cant remember witch). so i updated it.

maybe it's not the twrp, i'w been changing roms with no problems till the 6.2.

I don't know how but now 7.6 works. when i was installing 7.8, the installation time was to short, and i probably wasn't doing things right. i don't know....i'll wait for 8.0

Just updated from SlimKAT 7.6 to 7.8 on my G510, using TWRP 2.7.1. Did not check out all the details yet, but everything seems to work fine so far.

 

Procedure:

Advanced Wipe Dalvik Cache, Cache, System

Install SlimKat 7.8

Advanced Wipe Dalvik Cache, Cache

Install Slim Mini gapps 4.4.4

Advanced Wipe Dalvik Cache, Cache

Restart System

 

Finally, after some minutes and one or two manual restarts, SlimKAT 2.8 had found all apps, data, settings etc. I had used on SlimKAT 2.6 before. :)

OK. thank you for the details. the thing is, the installation of 7.8 rom lasted about 5 seconds. and i know that's not posible.

Did not know that wipes are exececuted by the script, just blindly adopted the procedure from other Smartphones/ROMs I had used.

 

So with my recent, successfull Slimkat updates I could learn now that needless wiping of already emptied caches does not defect the installation.  :-)
