    ROM
    RasbeanJelly/DanteRom v4

    Default [ROM][ZVJ][FINAL] 2.3.3 DanteRom v5 [UPDATE] 3/21/2014

    Now with HydroKernel, Notification QuickPanel, Swipe2Clear, and BatteryBar!



    DanteRom v5 FINAL - ZVJ

    ________________________________________________


    DanteRom is a stock based rom, using the ZVJ community rom provided to us by jstntp. This Rom has come a long way! All modifications have more or less been added that I had hoped to when I started this project . QuickPanel has been ported, thanks to Drews work and advice. Most recently I have modded the Settings Menu to remove the dreaded "Privacy>Factory Reset" option because of the risk of bricking your phone. Another new addition is a new Boot Animation, see the change log for details. Although this is lightly themed, I am soon going to be theming a little deeper. But that is yet to come. Please ONLY report bugs after reading/searching this thread for others with the same issue and and possible fixes. Also note that you flash this at your own risk, please read the entire opening post




    (Please note I have poor signal at home so these pictures are not indicitive of phone performance)

    ________________________________________________


    Why DanteRom?

    This is designed as a themed and enhanced stock based rom. I am working toward incorporating all wanted features. Though I have not incorporated all modifications I desire, this is still an on going project for me. Features will be added as I find them, feel free to make suggestions.

    The name Dante is partly in memory of a personal loss and as such kind of a tribute. Also, drop the "d" and you get Ante. Well this is me throwing my chips in to the game.

    Initial Release
    +GAPPS included!
    +Removed Sprint Bloatware
    +Performance Enhancements
    +Dalvik2Cache mod for greater internal storage

    +Removed ES File Exlporer and replaced with Root Browser Lite with develpoers permission.
    +Battery slightly re-themed to better match stock status colors.

    +Added BatteryBar files missed in last update.
    v2.3 Updates
    +HTC_IME keyboard now baked into the rom! It is themed to match the rom.
    +All apps have been updated, and those that can are in /system/apps to save storage space and allow maximum user data space.
    v2.5 Updates
    +Settings Menu modified to remove "Privacy>Factory Reset" as an option due to brick dangers.
    +New Boot Animation added. This is an animation that I have modded from the AOSP 2.3 bootanimation.zip. Please give feedback!
    v4 Updates
    +Updated to SuperSU, the next generation of root permission management.
    +Incorporated Goo Manager scripts to make future updates easier.
    -This also means that the rom is now on GOO.IM servers, under my username.
    -Also Goo Manager is included by default.
    +HydroKernel has been included by default with Drew's permission.
    +Updated all Google Apps.

    ________________________________________________

    About the Battery Bar Mod, this must be engaged from an app found within the app drawer. This is not my creation, but ported from this XDA thread. This seems like a very nice battery alternative/addition. You must first open the BatteryBar Settings app and uncheck "Show Battery Bar", close app, and reopen and recheck "Show Battery Bar" to engage. I recommend the #1 size from the BatteryBarSettings app as anything larger didnt quite look right to me. There are many options there, like changing its color. Automatic will place it as white (did for me), turn on static to get it to match current green battery.

    My goal here is to ultimately retheme the current battery indicator to just a percentage with now static battery in favor of this battery bar mod. Look for this in future DanteRom updates. See below for a new rethemed battery icon mod.


    This is a rethemed battery to reduce redundancy, removing the static battery part of the previous percentage battery icon. This replaces it with just the numeric percentage. Please only use with v2.2.1 or v2.3 of this rom. The above photo shows the battery bar in conjunction with this current mod to show changes made. Feedback is highly needed, as I am not quite sure on size, color ect.

    Boot to recovery, wipe cache/dalvik cache, flash and enjoy! And remember, feedback please!

    Battery.Percentage.v2.2.1.signed.zip

    ________________________________________________


    For those wanting the HTC_IME keyboard, it is now included! Swype is still enabled by default, simply enable HTC_IME from settings. This mod was found HERE! as well as the theming method I used.

    Want this on another ROM? Here is a flashable version!

    ________________________________________________

    Bug List
    -Double tap issue from ZVJ. Flash HydroKernalGB to fix Included by default.
    -Google Search, long press to delete single history event Simply update Google Search from market. Now updated by default.
    - Reported video issues from camcorder and streaming, CANNOT verify
    -FoxFi force close upon activation Moved to data/app to fix
    -Navigation not working. Update Maps from Play Store. Maps now up to date by default. Enable "Use wireless networks" via settings>location & security
    -Key press sound partially muted. Issue found working on fix.
    -Play Store error "Package File Is Invalid" - this is rarely seen to happen but is due to the dalvik2cache mod that is in place in some cases. The dalvik2dev mod by jstntp found here will fix you up but at the cost of a lengthy boot time.

    ________________________________________________

    Instructions:

    -Download DanteRom.v5.zip place on the root of the SD card. Although it says it is signed, it is NOT. Please disable signature verification until I can fix it.
    -Boot to Recovery, Cannibal Open Touch recommended but Xionia is still okay. (power down, then press Home, Vol Down, and Power and hold to the first LG splash)
    -Create a nandroid backup, this is a must.
    -Perform a full wipe, I use Debug-FormatALL.zip if on Xionia for simplicity. Seems Zefie's link is down so I uploaded it.(Zefie's page with the debug zips)
    -Disable Signature Verification and (now signed!) Flash the zip file.
    -Reboot and Enjoy!

    If after flashing and rebooting and you DO NOT have service, you likely are on the zvd radio/baseband which is incompatible with this, a zvj based ROM. The fix for this is quick flashable that will patch the needed files to get your service running. Simply flash this from recovery at any point after installing the rom, no wipes necessary. Notice, flashing this if you ARE on the zvj baseband will break your service. Only flash this if you know you are on the zvd baseband or have already discovered you have no service. This is based on the existing baseband patch. It has extra files that break DanteRom features so I trimmed it down here.

    ________________________________________________

    Kernel: (optional, but recommened)
    -Please install Rom and boot into the rom first. Then download the kernal of your choice and place on the SD card. Boot into recover and flash, no need to perform any wipes
    -drewwalton19216801's HydroKernal GB is my recommendation found here!
    HydroKernel now included!
    ________________________________________________

    [B]ATTENTION

    When switching to Dante.Rom.v5.zip from you MUST perform a full wipe. Not doing so breaks functions within the QuickPanel Mod, and maybe others. Do NOT report any issues if you have not.
    ________________________________________________

    I have tested Amphedamine and found it quite stable so far. Feel free to flash.[MOD]Amphetamines! Inject your Optimus today! - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    As always, backup first as this has not been intensively tested yet on this rom. I recommend flashing separately from the other zips, so boot to recovery, perform a backup, wipe cache/dalvik cache and proceed to flash.
    Amphedamine now included!
    ________________________________________________

    NOTE:
    Do not report bugs or issues if you did NOT follow directions and steps listed above
    ________________________________________________

    Want to help me out? I have a few option below!

    I am in great need of a new device to develop with for this rom and my many side projects here in the Optimus S forums. I never planned on doing this, as I do this work because I enjoy it and it is a challenge. But I have found I cannot make much progress without an actual device. So in the theory that every little bit helps, below is a donate button. Please help as you will all benifit.

    [ROM][ZVJ] 2.3.3 DanteRom v4 [UPDATE] 10/14/2012-btn_donate_lg.gif

    Here is another way to help, I do need more space to host my files. I currently use Dropbox to host and share a variety of files. How can you help? Very easy, simply use the link provided here to sign up and I receive 500mb for everyone who does.

    And who doesn't need a little cloud storage, 2gb worth for free! Still not conviced? How about that you can use the android app to instantly share files between your phone and your computer! And Instant Upload for your pictures means all those pictures you take will be waiting for you on your PC when you get home! Click Image below to help me out.

    pvyParts, over at XDA for this wonderfull mod and guide. Thanks !!
    Nick7 for pointing out how to get HTC_IME working within the rom.
    dynamite33, for his guide to porting the Swipe2Clear to the Optimus One.thekraven, for getting me started on finding and removing the sprint animation (also LOVE your CM7)
    zefie, for his great recovery and the format zips we almost all use.
    The Android Central Community as a whole
    Team Zeam, for creating an excellent launcher and allowing me to use it.
    FoxFi for such a great tool and allowing me to include it
    The developer of Root Browser, great program! If you like this, please purchase pro!
    thewraith420 for offering so much help on testing, you have been a great help!
    ________________________________________________

    I am open to feedback and suggestions. Notification Power Menu is on my list, but is still a little beyond my knowledge base. Notification QuickPanel now included. I also do not want to add any more bloat unless it adds something significant, so no Titanium Backup ect.

    Also, I have been thinking of removing live wallpapers, and then providing a flashable zip to restore them. How many of you use live wallpaper?

    Dalvik2Dev Mod - provided by jstntp
    ________________________________________________

    [BOX=.]Jstntp originally made this for HydroRom, and has given me permission to release it here. This mod is necessary to correct the Play Store error "Package File Is Invalid." This happens due usually to a large number of user installed apps. All user apps load partially into the Dalvik Cache during first boot. But the Play Store also needs space there during app installation. So the result is that new apps fail during installation. By moving the Dalvik Cache instead to the Dev partition it eleviates that space. The drawback, is that it is wiped on every boot and regenerated, so boot times are a little longer with this mod in place, so only use if you are getting this error.[/BOX]
    ________________________________________________

    [BOX=Installation instructions]-Download - dalvik2dev-HydroRom-ZVJ.zip and place on the root of the SD Card.
    -Boot to recovery
    -Wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache
    -Flash dalvik2dev-HydroRom-ZVJ.zip
    -Reboot and enjoy![/BOX]

    Below are a few more options. Dont like the dalvik2dev mod? Either remove or replace it with one of the zips below. Follow the instructions above to apply. Please note, simply disabling the dalvik2dev mod will return the dalvik to the data partition and impact your internal storage. The better option is the simply replace it with the dalvik2cache mod instead found below (this is the original dalvik mod that is included with DanteRom)

    Download - DisableDalvik2Dev.zip
    Download - RestoreDalvik2Cache.zip

    Well, zeam is less then half as big as the stock launcher and it is customizable. Love the scrollable dock, that is big time important to me for easy access to contacts I call nearly every day. Cant help with the feminine theme, but you are more then welcome to design a theme from my rom and I will then inturn keep it updated with the main fork (I will make this offer good for 3 or 4 themes for those interested in some theming work !!)

    Glad you approve, Drew. Truth be told, this is very similar to Ginger Rom. But I did what I could to make it my own and include features I wanted and thought others would approve. I am still trying to figure out that nasty power notification bit. Uck! But I am still plugging away at it LOL

    Yeah, I did like zeam until I realized I couldn't change the dock icons, it just bugs me, I'm kinda ocd about my icons being all pretty lol. It's fine though, I'm used to using a different launcher anyway

    The theme isn't a huge deal either. I wasn't trying to complain. I think you did a great job

    once you find a launcher that's your style, you can uninstall zeam from /system/app

    Zeam has replaced stock launcher2.apk and is in system/app. No reason to remove, just download a new launcher and set preferences. Or if adventuresome, pull your launcher of choice and move to system/app and delete zeam.

    Btw can't you make your launcher a system app with titanium backup, or will it not work right? Titanium, I mean. I know it can be shifty sometimes.

    Honestly, I did notice an increase with this mod. I have contacted him about incorporating in within the rom, so we will see. Every one, feel free to flash this mod, no wipes needed.

    also it says its for the optimus v, but it works with optimus s too.

    so dont be afraid.

    I am now running DanteRom with hydrokernel and amphetamines.....Man is this phone flying now. Im due to upgrade my phone in June, but I think im going to wait now that ive learned how to root and flash. This phone is so much better than a stock optimus.
