SlimBean ROM - Android 4.2.2


Tired of oversized ROMs bloated with countless number of features and settings?

If yes then this one is for you. It was built from SlimRoms sources and

contains carefully selected set of the most important and useful features.

At the same time, The ROMs size is just over 150 mb in my build, so in order for it to fit you will have to flash one of the LatinIME keyboards

Visit official site for more info: http://slimroms.net

This ROM comes with HoloLauncher HD by default.

This is a rom suitable for advanced users only not whining about all the well known problems

or missing features.

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.

Respect and credits go mainly to Tilal and KonstaT for doing all the dirty

work to bring JellyBean to ZTE devices, Dazzozo for doing his work on the blade2, the SlimRoms team, C3C0, he made this ROM for the skate and provided sources, the whole androidarmv6 project team, CyanogenMod and all the others involved. Special thanks to daemond for great patches solving the remaining issues (sound routing, HW VSYNC, video playback, ...)

Thanks for this. Installing now and will post back after i've played around with it a little.

EDIT: I've installed the ROM and it's working nicely. However when i try to install the INT2EXT+ script the phone stops at the slim been fading image and just keeps repeatedly flashes the logo.

P.S. Sorry for the double post. Mod please delete the other comment.

You can use no frills to overclock but there also is a performance menu in the settings app where you can oc, without the need for qn additional app

Loving this rom so far, it's got all the things I like, Centre clock, The battery level as a line along the top, Jelly Bean, Full control over the CPU and it's low in size to boot.

Great work, Thanks!

Don't follow both instructions, follow only the first one

I managed to install it (using 2nd instructions :P), but without int2ext script cause when i flash that it wont boot.

Is there any specific reason why dhis script isnt working here?

I like this rom. I'm using the crescent version but have no performance options under settings. I cant uninstall halo launcher and I'd like to make the os animations run faster

Thanks for the work

Making the animations run faster is achieved in the developers options that you can activate by going to settings about phone and tapping "Build number" quickly 7 times, I think that will also unlock the performance options.

Installing Holo luancherHD can be achieved by using any "root uninstall app" from playstore, or simply removing the apk

You need to use the usual CM10.1 method to get the performance section, go into the About section of the settings and tap on the Build Number at the bottom 7 times, this will then let you see the developer settings.

As for uninstalling the halo launcher you could do this with Titanium Backup, you can also do it by deleting the apk file using a root explorer.
