Re: [ROM][MTD][FC09] RandomROM THUNDERHAWK V | [5/21]Known Issues:-You've got questions, here's some answers!I really miss my old transparent messaging app, can I have that back?
- You can now! I've just released a few variations of transparent Gingerbread messaging!
How do I use my own ringtone, alarm, and notification mp3s?
Ah, Swype.Unfortunately, since the Froyo version that initially came on our phone, we've been employing the latest and greatest versions with better features. But all of them have still been betas, and they will all expire one day. I do not know if, or how to modify it to avoid expiration. Nor do I currently know where to pickup the next available version until I find one. Instead, I recommend doing what I have just finished doing. Install the swype beta installer.
- Create a folder on your SD card called "media".
- Inside of that create "audio".
- Inside of that create:
- "ringtones" for ringtones.
- "alarms" for alarms.
- "notifications" for notifications.
1. First, using a file explorer delete the following files:
- /system/lib/libswypecorexxxxx.so [the x's stand in for the exact number]
2. Next, head here to download the installer if you didn't get it with my rom.
3. The rest is pretty self explanatory.
You do have to sign up to be a tester if you're not already, I have been for some times. I assure you, it's a harmless process and won't flood your email account.
I wish I could make this easier, but for some time now, Swype has only been releasing beta versions and they will all expire at some point.
As a bonus, if you follow my instructions, then your Swype personal dictionary will carry into the new Swype beta!
I have been referenced to a site with some themed editions of the most recent versions.
Also, you can check here for a few simpler themed editions I have built into my latest themes.
Please Note that I believe these alternate versions will still expire at some point, thus, the installer is pre-included into my roms.
Re: [ROM][MTD][FC09] RandomROM THUNDERHAWK V | [5/21]Regularly updated installation information available on the download page.
1. Incremental Update over the latest version.
2. Install over another custom rom version.
3. Clean install.
Please Note: If you attempt a clean install over ThunderHawk III Final, you will have to wipe your phone and install a second time in order to override the incremental updater.Why not FC19?I'm going through a very busy part of my life and am the father of a now two and a half month old baby boy. FC19 is a leaked rom, which I no longer officially support, due to Samsung's habit to break more than it fixes in it's updates. Especially in leaked versions not endorsed by Samsprint.
On that note, I will be digging in to ICS via CM9, if Samsung doesn't drop something else first. I've been toying with CM9, and battery life is improving... It's still a phone and it needs to have power for phone calls when those times come. Check my site for any news on that.

Re: [ROM][MTD][FC09] RandomROM THUNDERHAWK V | [5/21]
I really like the look and feel of this ROM, plus now I'm not getting the FC09 Sprint update notifications that I was getting while running EC05.
The only problem I've had was choosing my own alarm notifications in Clock, but I just now read your advice above about creating the "media" folder. I will try that out ASAP.
I just made a donation. Thank you for keeping my two-year old phone feeling like a brand new one!

Re: [ROM][MTD][FC09] RandomROM THUNDERHAWK V | [5/21]
Thanks for another fantastic release, RandomKing. Been running this release for the past few days, it's great to have awesome battery life again. I'd been using the CM9 ICS port for the past few months until before coming back to Thunderhawk IV (2 weeks ago) and now V. Definitely enjoying being on MTD vs BML
Can't wait to see what you'd be able to do with tweaking a CM9 ICS build...I'd be all over that for testing and use Just sent you a donation as well, I definitely owed it you, as your ROM(s) have saved my sanity and kept me loving my Epic 4G.
