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

Recommended Posts

Hi Chil360,

 

I am with Slimkat 6.2

 

do you suggest to install SwapDrogonX on this ROM?

if yes, which one? V1 or V2?

 

has any one tried it on latest SlimKat?

 

by the way, thanks for your awesome work. This ROM is very good.

Back to slimkat after 2/3 weeks with B200 stock based AOSP ROM, I flashed 6.0 version and everything is working well....

Just after flash, I've seen something really strange: I opened nova app drawer and I've seen an icon saying "FM radio transmitter" or something similar... FM radio had its own icon.

After few seconds, the icon disappeared, and I haven't seen it animore since then...  :blink:  :blink:  :blink:

I think I noticed that the on the first boot on the first version that had working FM radio. I think transmit=false is in build.prop, perhaps FM app needs to start to figure that out?

This is an unofficial build of SlimKat 6 for the Huawei Ascend Y300, G510 & G330.

 

For more information about SlimKat go to: http://slimroms.net/

 

This is my first attempt at any android rom porting so use at your own risk!

 

This rom was made by porting Dazzozo's CM11 device tree to build against the SlimKat sources.

Now that the porting work is complete, I intend to update this ROM to coincide with the official SlimKat weekly releases.

There may also be a few test builds as I experiment with things before adding to the regular builds.

 

FAQ:

 

How do i get root access?

Go to Settings > Developer Options > Root Access and set it to Applications and ADB

 

How do I change the DPI?

Edid the build.prop file and set ro.sf.lcd_density=240

 

How do I enable Advanced Reboot?

Go to Settings > Security > Advanced Reboot and set it to Show Always

 

Downloads:

       Y300 ROM: Google Drive Dev-Host

       G510 ROM: Google Drive Dev-Host

       G330 ROM: Google Drive Dev-Host

       GAPPS: Any 4.4.2 GApps should work, Slim GApps is the official version for Slim but I use BaNkS GApps

Any chance this could be ported to a device with the same processor and chipset? Namely, the Neptune Pine?

I really like your ROM, but my clock isn't working.. I really need my alarm clock :-D Anybody else experiencing the same?? Tried both machines, Dalvik and Art. Cleared cache + dalvik. Still not working.

 

The flaws I had so far:

- Lockups, here and then.

- Some random reboots

- Clock is not working!!

- Internal and external SD are interchanged

- Can't convert usual apps to system apps in titanium backup :-/

 

cheers, z

The kernel is built with the linaro-4.7-13.04 toolchain provided by Slim. The rom is built with the standard gcc 4.7 prebuilt from the Google AOSP repo.

 

I have been experimenting with building the rom & kernel with different toolchains but haven't released any builds with these yet.

I tried building the rom with Linaro 4.8 but got graphical glitches in Google Play. At the moment I am getting good results using SaberMod 4.8 for the rom and SaberMod 4.9 for the kernel with no noticeable change in stability. I will probably release a test build during the week with this configuration so you can all try it and see what you think.

Has that differs linaro and sabermod? :blink:

SaberMOD is closer to GNU's GCC, just like Google's NDK toolchain, while they included various changes/patches taken from the linaro repo. Even Google does use some of the commits done by Linaro.

 

Linaro is working on optimizations for kernel code, toolchain and other stuff, while keeping all those things in sync to each other. In theory you get the best result using a combination of Linaro kernel+toolchain.

 

I've been comparing SaberMOD vs Linaro too already. It's not easy to say which of both is the "better" one. Recently quite a few developers on XDA switched from Linaro to SaberMOD.

I've been a little sidetracked with the kernel this week with the problem moving apps to sd (fixed in chil360-kernel-v0.45R2) so haven't got round to doing any more test builds with different toolchains.
 
I'm just about to try a build using Sabermod 4.8 for the rom and the Slim linaro-4.8-14.04 prebuilt for the kernel, I may upload it later if it's ok.

 

ANNOUNCEMENT:

My Google Drive account is getting close to the storage limit so I will have to remove some of the older builds. When I upload the next weekly (on Monday?) I will be removing all 2.X and 3.X rom zips.

Strange thing. 

 

Accidentally flashed the G330 ROM on my G510. While it does not recognize my SIM and the back speaker does not work, the user-interface feels abit better.

For example, with the G510 ROM i have a 1-2 second lag when unlocking phone (press button -> wait 2 seconds -> screen lights up). But with this ROM it's basically instant.

 

Seems strange to me..

I have just uploaded 2 Y300 test builds...

 

Build 1: Slim-u8833-4.4.4.build.6.3.20140711-CHIL360.zip

 

This build uses the SaberMod 4.8 toolchain for the rom and Slim linaro-4.8 for the kernel. Only a small change to the source code was made to allow building with gcc 4.8.

 

Build 2: Slim-u8833-4.4.4.build.6.3.20140711-CHIL360JA.zip

 

This build uses the same toolchains as Build 1 but the code has been modified to use the JustArchi V3 Optimizations

 

 

Please test them both and let me know what you think in terms of speed, stability and general smoothness compared to the standard builds.

Trying out the second one; so far I can only say it gets stuck when trying to switch to ART. :(

(later)

With dalvik everything seems to be OK so far, although the antutu score is the lowest I ever had with versions of this rom (the highest I had with 5.8).

(still later)

A reboot occurred, the phone was just lying there and rebooted. Maybe there was an incoming call, I don't know. Before that several incoming and outgoing calls went without problems...

(and still later)

Hmm yet another reboot, in the same circumstances

(...)

Switched to the version without optimizations. No reboots so far, however it also freezes on ART, and antutu score is also quite low (but slightly higher).

@anotherjib

Thanks for testing these.

 

In the JustArchi thread on XDA there's a link to a patch for ART for 4.8 toolchains. I'll add that when I next do a Sabermod test build.

I sounds like the JustArchi optimizations are a step too far at the moment but I might try a few smaller changes.

It's because the GCC 4.8 isn't compatible with ART. There is a fix for that in JustArchi github.

Edit: Don't pay attention to this message.

JustArchi optimizations are idiotic!

Do you at least look at the flags before you build?

Their are problems that are (mostly) solvable with aggressive loop optimizations (4.8+) referring to null and zero pointers (this affects & some other flags) & this guy tried to go with unsafe loop optimizations.

This is not actually 2.6 RHEL kernel so that you can disable debugging.

One more things Code Auroras msm code is not thumb compatible! :P
