[ROM][Skate] RootBox - CM/AOKP/PA mix - Android 4.2.2 (20/03/2013)

Recommended Posts


... or "Yet-another-CM/AOKP/PA-mix" 4.2.2 ROM which I find quite interesting and fast.

Detailed info can be found in the original thread @ XDA: http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1806401

Unfortunatelly, I had to remove the Xposed framework that takes care of per-app UI layout since it's not compatible with our CPU.

Other than that, everything seems to be working fine.

Pie, as you know it from PA, has also some further additions. E.g. it shows complete (with clock and notifications) even if expanded

desktop is not enabled (when status bar is visible).

Reporting Bugs

When reporting, please:

1) provide as much detailed info as you can: e.g. what performance settings you use, method of increasing internal memory, ...

2) provide steps to reproduce the issue (if reproduceable)

3) attach a logcat containing info related to the particular incident (use aLogcat from play store)

Since I am not an Oracle I will ignore all bug reports that lack this information :)

Additionally, I will not provide any support for 3rd party user-apps that don't come with the ROM.

Thank you for understanding.

Tried it . MAN this ROM has the best features inside a box and it's super faster.

Also there's a bug when you open Message application , the status bar goes white and then stays black.

It happens in all white and bright apps. Related to status bar transparency which I was not able to turn off so far... Option for setting transparency level somehow doesn't work for me...
