    Default [COMMUNITY ROM][2.3.3][ZVJ] Stock Rooted ROM Base

    -Community ROM-



    This base ROM is built off the ZVJ update released by Sprint/LG. Please feel free to use this as your base for building your own custom ROM either for just yourself or to share with the community. I'd really like to see some new ROMs come out of this.

    This ROMs feature List:

    -Rooted
    -Deodexed
    -Busybox installed
    -Ability to run scripts in init.d (will need to set permissions in the updater-script for your scripts)

    -Everything else is completely stock and has NOT been debloated
    -Rom is NOT signed


    Download:


    Please feel free to discuss ROM building in this thread. I will offer any advice I can as time permits, but please do some research as well and help each other out.

    Now let's see some new Killer ROMs!!!!!

    ??? I don't know what you mean by update feature. If you would like to try this as is, you would disable signature verification in custom recovery and flash like any other rom. At this stage though, its really no different than the stock update as far as performance and features go.

    I wouldn't mind trying rom building. Just a few questions. I know compiling a rom from source must be done from Linux, but can a stock based rom like this be managed from windows? It would seem so to me. Could you point to a few helpfully sources/guides/info for building such roms? I have a feeling anything I could come up with would be fairly juvenal compared to your ginger rom or (in my opinion) the master builders in team hydro. But I guess you have to start somewhere.

    I am curious if someone can flash this on top of ZVH radio.

    Then see how many of the "ZVH problems" are fixed.

    This will tell us which problems were fixed in the ROM/kernel and which require the new radio.

    My guess is most (if not all) of the problems were fixed in the ROM/kernel.

    I would also be interested in ROM building, I've been trying to get started for some time now.

    The first thing I recommend to all of you wanting to produce your own roms is to download the base rom I posted and open it up. Take a look inside at what a rom consists of. In the META-INF folder (a couple more folders in) you will find a file named updater-script. That contains the script commands the recovery reads when you flash the rom. It tells your recovery where to put the files and what permissions they need, as well as other stuff. Just study that for a bit, after some time, it will start to make sense.

    Then back to the front of the rom zip, look in system folder. There is the guts of the rom. Apks are in the app folder and essential framework files are in the framework folder.

    Google apktool. You will need that to decompile and compile the apks and such. That's if you want to let's say theme out your rom, or port features over from other roms like the notification toggles, or extended power button reboot mod, etc......

    I understand that I am just kind of rambling here and not really giving too much detail, but I'm just trying to teach you the way I learned. Open the rom, compare the insides to other roms, compare specific files (SystemUI.apk and framework-res.apk for example) to other peoples mods and roms. DO NOT steal their work...... but that's how you learn how they did it.

    Decompile framework-res.apk with apktool and study the xml files inside. There are tons of different visual and functional tweaks that happen in xml files.

    Anyway, the point I am trying to make is, dig in...... get your hands dirty. Oh and Google....... Google A LOT!

    If anyone is wondering another way to look inside of apk's is to use 7zip, it will open an apk like a zip file. You have to use an apk tool to recompile it. I tried recompiling an apk using 7zip and it didn't work out too well. But 7zip is quick and pretty easy to use. Also 7zip is very useful when you want to use .png's for battery or icons and stuff found in framework-res.apk. But always ask before you use someone else's stuff. If anyone needs help with graphic design for their ROM or a logo or something hit me up, I'd be happy to help.

    If you are inclined to spend a lot of money and want a pretty trophy with which to pass the next few years of your life that talks to you in a condescending voice, can't navigate to save its life, expects full control over all you do, demands $13 for a $3 purchase, allegedly has a single recessed button, needs an expensive computer and a credit card to do anything, hates your music and has purses designed just for it...

    Get married to someone you hate... or get an iPhone.

    That youtube video only explains how to compile from source. But you need a proper source tree.

    That second link...utterly useless. All it does is explain what each core component does and has almost nothing to do with making a custom ROM.

    im still learning what core component are....... today i learned what .so file are but i didnt get to the part on how to edit them and i learned how to edit the framework-res and systemui.apk or at least the graphics the tutorial that i read said to use notepad++ but whenever i open xml files all the code says is "null" everywhere there should be xml code???? im a little confused on that and then tomarrow im gonna learn how to use apktool
    and i pretty much understand the system libs and how they work with .apks but thats about it

    got any good tips......think of me as a ed 3 yr old in a helmet please go slow.......its my first time and im severly LD but once i figure it out im gonna bust roms all over the place

    You will need to decompile the apk's with apktool, such as framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk in order to edit the xml files. Sounds like you were headed that direction anyway so keep goin!! cracking the rom/apk's/files open and exploring is the best way to learn IMO.

    Well I used 7zip to decompile the apks now without reading anything I'm guessing apktool works pretty much like the command line version of winrar?? Just a little different though
    Maybe something like
    Apktool- compile apklocation
    Or something to that effect?
    But after I decompile the apks with 7zip the files are in a folder
    Do I keep the folder to recompile or did 7zip add the folder?
