    Default [ ROM ] Calkulin's E4GT v1.1 [ EG30 l Fast l Tweaked l Bat

    Source/Link: [ ROM / 11-9 ] Calkulin's E4GT v1.1 [ EG30 l Fast l Tweaked l Battery Saver Script ]
    Credit: Calkulin/xda developers

    Note: Android Central or I take no claim to this, just simply passing it along for you. Feel free to openly discuss anything with this ROM here, but for direct dev support I would recommend the source/link.

    Feature List

    Based on rooted 2.3.4 / EG30

    ROM includes:
    LoSt Exp+ kernel
    Most Samsung apps
    EStrongs File Explorer
    HTC_IME mod keyboard
    Wireless Tether
    Busybox
    and a couple more
    (Removed apps are in the sdcard/Removed_Apps folder)

    MODs included:
    Tweaked system(Very FAST)
    Kernel is undervolted by 50mV(Check the FAQ for different voltages)
    Necrosan's Hotspot Hack to unlock Sprint Hotspot & USB tethering
    Moved dalvik-cache to cache partition
    Reduced auto-brightness range for better battery life
    Removed haptic feedback from dialer & stock Android lockscreen(if you decide to use it)
    Notification bar will display TRUE network speeds, 2G(1x when used) & 3G(EVDO)
    Reboot & Recovery power menu options
    Swapped phone & message buttons in dialer
    TouchWiz launcher displays 5 dock icons & 5x5 app drawer
    Browser UA string selection
    Removed CIQ service
    Removed Camera sounds
    Removed messaging from call logs
    Colored notification icons
    Battery % on battery meter
    Transparent notification background
    Removed USB Debug notification
    Upped MMS send size limit to 5MB
    Annoying ads in programs are blocked
    And other misc tweaks/mods

    System has also been de-odex'd, apk's have been optimized & aligned

    Notes about Battery Saver script

    Can be used with stock or custom kernels that have init.d support

    It completely eliminates the need for an application to set CPU speeds or profiles
    Easily customizable if you use a text editor(scripts located in /system/etc/init.d)
    It will set Max CPU speed to 500MHz & Min CPU speed to 200MHz when a sleep
    If SetCPU, Overclock Widget, Android Overclock or QuickClock Advanced Overclock are detected, the script is ignored, so it will not affect them

    Preset profiles are:
    1.2GHz - 100-85%
    1.0GHz - 84-36%
    800MHz - 35-0%

    And just an FYI, even at 800MHz, the phone still operates very well & smooth but the battery saving are the real benefit


    v1.1
    Fixed browser & other minor issues introduced in v1.0*
    Fixed missing apps from Market
    Fixed some apps/games not launching
    Tweaked Conservative governor settings

    Added
    Necrosan's Hotspot hack(modded to fix browser scrolling)
    App Widget Picker v1.2.3
    Detection of Android Overclock & QuickClock Advanced Overclock to scaling script

    Updated
    Adobe Flash Player v11.0.1.153

    This rom rocks but it is the first and only one I have tried, I put the ICS theme on it and it looks freakin sick. But battery life improved so far and it is really really fast. I love the ICS theme so much.

    Only issue is keyboard keeps resetting to swype. Would post in xda but I'm new to android and don't have enough posts.

    I am running the same set up. I dont use the HTC keyboard but I am curious as to what step you are taking to switch keyboards, ie long press > select input or are you going into settings>local and input> then unchecking all except the HTC keyboard?

    FYI a new kernel just hit XDA tonight that includes mods to CWM off the 5.0.2.6 base along with other tweaks. It sounds like with Calkulin's ROM and this kernel things will just fly. A couple of people are already reporting 5,000+ Quadrant scores. I know how many people feel about benchmarks, but since stock comes in a bit over 3,000, I thought it was pretty impressive.

    Anyhoo, eat it up if yer hungry.

    Fyi here are some battery life shots running this ROM. Auto brightness. Wifi, gps, bluetooth on all day. Use includes about an hour of streaming an audiobook file via bluetooth and a half hour of Google music streaming.

    Not bad.

    Still on the latest EXP LoStKernel. I wanted to get a feel for the ROM before I tried the Team Rogue kernel. Easier to identify issues that way.

    Pretty sure you gotta wipe data too Sling. The format all ZIP Calk made takes care of all that.

    Did you flash the full rom before or just the update? Also did you make a back up in cwm?

    It's attached to the bottom of Calk's XDA thread. Download that, move it to your SD card and install it before you install his ROM.

    You have to wipe data and probably format /system to get this ROM to install correctly. Calk's ZIP utility makes that easy. But be aware yer gonna lose sms threads (unless you back them up), App data and other system settings. Also, people reported issues restoring Apps and App data using TB. So I used Appbak to re-download and re-install MOST of my Apps, and used TB to only restore a few Apps that I really wanted the data for.

    Edit - Hey I broke 1,000 posts today ... since June 2011 lol. Ugh I'm on these forums a lot.

    No need to do any wipes when flashing a kernel, maybe a back up just in case

    Yeah not data for sure, but I usually wipe cache and dalvik cache for good measure. In fact, I do that before I flash ANYTHING in CWM. Force of habit I guess.

    Grats on the successful install Sling. I was absolutely happy to help. It's going to take a few charge cycles for your battery to settle in, but after just one charge cycle, I've found Calk's battery script to really do a nice job. I had to PUSH my phone hard to drain the battery last night (I was re-calibrating the battery stats so I wanted to drain it). No real slowdowns with the auto undervolting either. Good stuff.

    Oh one more thing about this ROM. Calk didn't set the default wifi setting to "never sleep" in v1.1, so you'll want to make sure you do that manually if you haven't already. It may be a good idea to go though all of your system settings actually and make sure everything is set to your liking.
