I'm pleased to present my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Honor 5X KIW-L21!

READ THIS WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU START! No, really, it contains everything you need to know.

About MoDaCo Custom ROMs

MoDaCo Custom ROMs are based on official ROMs. A MCR release is designed to feel like a stock Emotion UI ROM with optimisations, tweaks and complimentary additions that enhance the user experience. The aim of a MCR is to be ultra reliable for use on an everyday device.

This ROM is part of the 'Unified Honor ROM' project - ROMs with the same changes are available for all current Honor devices.

A MCR version with a more 'stock Android' like interface is under development.

Requirements

In order to use this ROM you must have a custom recovery (e.g. TWRP) installed. The ROM is installed at your own risk. A wipe IS recommended if coming from a ROM other than MCR or stock. BACK UP YOUR DEVICE BEFORE INSTALLATION!

Features

  • Based on the B330 custom ROM starter template (you may use MCR as a base for your own ROM)
  • ROM fully optimised with the unique MCR scripts
  • Updated power management policies to reduce instances of 'missing notifications'
  • All apps in ROM updates to latest versions (a considerable saving of over 1GB on /data!)
  • Busybox installed
  • sepolicy patched boot image ready for root
  • selinux permissive
  • Removed 'icons' from /system/themes (themes no longer need to include default icons again)
  • MoDaCo Custom Kitchen (coming soon!)
  • Multi user support
  • Multi window support
  • Preloaded Stockify theme stub
  • Numerous other small refinements - please see the gitlab commits for full details
  • This ROM is completely in version control at gitlab! https://gitlab.com/u/paulobrien/projects
  • Want more tweaks and changes? Post your requests in the support topic.

Changelog

Please see the post below this one for the changelog.

Installation

You should install this ROM on a device that has previously been updated to the B330 release.

To install this ROM:

  • Download the zip file from the links below and copy to your internal / external SD card.
  • Restart your device in recovery mode
  • PERFORM A BACKUP FROM THE MENU
  • Select the option to apply an update zip, and select the zip file you copied to the SD card.

Important Note: As this ROM is partially deodexed, first boot can take a long time. If you have not wiped, you can check for any issues with adb logcat. Be patient!

Downloads

Please do not mirror these downloads elsewhere.

Support

If you have a general question, please post in the topic.

Thanks

It's impossible to mention everyone who contributes to the Android community by name, but to everyone out there who does great work and shares it with us all - you have my gratitude and respect.

Future Updates - READ THIS!

By providing this ROM I am not guaranteeing that future updates will follow. Due to limits on my time and the fact that I have a large number of devices for short periods of time, it isn't possible for me to continue providing ROM updates indefinitely.

And finally...

Enjoy!

A BETA version of the new MoDaCo ROM kitchen is now available for this ROM.

Points to note:

  • The kitchen is currently in Beta testing, ensure you have a backup before applying the ROM.
  • The kitchen is currently running on our test servers - ROMs may take several minutes to be baked for downloading. We are targetting 30 second bake times ultimately.
  • The selection saving and custom zip uploads are currently not operational - these will return in a forthcoming build.

Enjoy! :)

Visit the ROM kitchen.

Release r3 of the ROM is now available in the first post and will be updated in the kitchen shortly.

By popular request, from r3 the rom is deodexed. This makes it easier to tweak and hack apps or framework, which will also increase the scope for mods going forward (I have several in development). This makes Xposed compatibility easier too - if you flash Xposed, edit the build.prop first to set hwtheme=0 and you should be set.

Again, by popular request, this ROM now has selinux set to permissive.

Finally, as always, the latest updates have been integrated into /system saving you valuable space on your data partition.

Important Note: As this ROM is deodexed, first boot can take a long time. If you have not wiped, you can check for any issues with adb logcat. Be patient!

You should install this ROM on a device that has previously been updated to the B130 release.

A quick update on r4, which is in preperation now.

Aside from integrating the latest updates as always, I've started looking at Facebook Redex, which shows some promise for eking out a bit of extra performance from the ROM. We can't just apply it to everything en masse (that doesn't work), but I've started working out how to integrate it into my existing MCR optimisation scripts. FWIW, my existing scripts do a much better job on pure size, but Redex should help in some other regards.

One thing that is really important for me for the ROM is to sort the 'missing notifications' issue - as such I've started a topic discussing it here in the Honor forum. Please have your say, hopefully we can sort it out!

Finally, a lot of changes are being prepared to bring the ROM closer to 'stock Android', around both the content and theming. The real potential of custom ROMs will be unlocked when APKTool works with Honor / Huawei devices, I am liaising with Connor, the APKTool developer, to try and make this happen.

Stay tuned! :)

Hi,

after a factotry reset I thought it was a good idea to delete all odex and system files too using TWRP.

It was not a good idea ... because after showing the start screen the Honor 5x KIW-L21 would not boot any more.

also reinstalling the backup in TWRP did not help.

Strangely after starting several times in recovery mode TWRP "diappeared" and the Huawei eRevery showed up.

I tried that but "getting package info failed".

Is your custom ROM suitable for me to have it installed with a newly installed TWRP.

You say it is an update ... so it has to have a working ROM ??? or not??

thanks Peter
