    ROM
    Bean_Whiz-CM10v2.2.2CX

    Default

    This is a TouchWhiz 5.0 Theme and Launcher from the Galaxy S4.

    The only way to make this work was to actually insert the TouchWhiz 5.0 theme.apk and all of the TouchWhiz 5.0 launcher elements into the ROM.zip.
    The only ROM that would would allow for this to be done and not get freaky was the SlimRom by thekraven which he built totally from source code.
    I had never tried the SlimRom for some reason till now, but it is the fastest, smoothest Jellybean ROM I have ever had on my phone. I'm impressed.


    This ROM being only a very slight MOD of the SlimRom, so it uses all the other fixes including the Virgin fix (tested on my LG Optimus V). Radio works on JB 4.1.2. ZVD based.
    Note: If you get tired of the theme,the launcher,or the keyboard you can easily switch back to any of SlimROMs (as long as you don't delete any of them).


    thekraven deserves all the credit for such an awsome ROM. I just gave it a different look and a couple of tweaks.

    Pics:










    This is the reason I used this theme over others. Some had the brightness slider in the notification drawer. This takes up too much space in the notification drawer and is not needed if you choose the brightness slider in the taskbar option.

















    Bean_Whiz-CM10 ROM/MOD/THEME: Updated Friday 2 May 2014

    ROM will take ten minutes to boot on initial install.


    Bean_Whiz-CM10.v2.2.4-ext. The entropy_n_rngd-tool instead of Seeder (Seeder can be a security risk in the right situation). v2.2.4-ext = Finally found a terminal emulator app and lib file that works+the Fly-On Mod script (included license folder this time so it will work) as well as Toucan4267's cache to ext script and a better boot animation
    You have to have a partition on the sd card to use it. I would suggest making a 1GB partition on your sd card if you plan on using Link2SD (need to have an 8GB or better SD card). I use Link2SD with this so I have a UI and more control and can put my widget apps onto the internal storage as well as move apps back and forth between system and sd partition. Link2SD is also the best at deleting system app that I don't need. With Link2SD and Tucan4267's script I have 82 downloaded apps and still have 141MB of free space on the internal storage.

    http://www.mediafire.com/?tmbiimjcpu5mr17 Unzip this before flashing as the ROM.zip and the data folder (with the Fly-On and local folder) are inside.

    Bugs/Bean_Whiz-CM10.v2.2.4-ext: Speaker phone still does not work.


    SlimRom_Gapps2-oldvoicesearch. Has working voice search and working Google quick search box.
    Slim_Gapps2-oldvoicesearch
    MD5 sum: 29b5317fef683b6868c997b71c7dd2fc

    Bugs/SlimRom_Gapps-oldvoicesearch: Voice search works on everything, the actual quick search box just opens up the stock browser, doesn't actually initiate a google search in the browser. The quick search box works great when search items requiring a browser are typed in.

    WARNING: Never link a terminal emulator to the SD card partition and then attempt to flash a recovery. It will bork your recovery partition so bad you will need fastboot commands to straighten it out (after you figure out how to even get into the fastboot screen)

    This ROM works best with the ClockworkMod 5.2.0.7-th7 Touch Screen Recovery.
    If you made the partition on the SD card with the Xionia recovery, you will need to revert back to just one FAT 32 partition then re-make partition with a ClockworkMod recovery. To do that go here: http://androidforums.com/optimus-v-a...d-version.html
    Go down to just below Note #2 in the first post for Windows OS computers.

    This is the recovery that you need to use with this ROM: ClockworkMod Recovery 5.2.0.7-th7
    For more info and to give thanks go here: [RECOVERY] CWMT Recovery 5.0.2.7-th7 (T is for TOUCH!) OV
    This has been tested and works, both for making the partition and for sucessfully flashing everything needed for the ROM.
    I have made a flashable zip of this recovery so you don't have to type in any code. just install like you would a ROM (Do not wipe or format anything, though) from your current recovery. Then select the "reboot recovery" option in whatever recovery you currently are using. It will then reboot into the Touchscreen recovery.
    Flashable zip can be found here: CWMTRecovery_5.0.2.7-th7_thunderc
    Note: You can not flash an upgrade or radio.img with this. You need the Xionia recovery for that. If you have the flashable zip version of both the Xionia and Touchscreen recovery's then you can switch back and forth from one to the other without ever having to type in any code.
    Flashable zipped version of the Xionia can be found found here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/att...ery-signed.zip
    Go down to the bottom of the first post and click on the attachment. This is used and is only needed in case you ever get into a recovery loop or need to upgrade/flash a radio.img.


    For a proper pre ROM installation wipe and format as well as what to do after the first bootup, go here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...ml#post3163105
    If you follow this to the letter and you used the 5.0.2.7-th7 recovery to make the SD card partition and flash the ROM and Gapps you will not have any problems with the ROM other than the RAM getting low.
    For this problem use Fast Reboot from the PlayStore.

    Don't forget: If you need to use the Virgin fix, flash it right after flashing the ROM.

    It will only boot with the supplied kernel. It might boot with another kernel once it is all setup, but I doubt it.
    I would stick with trying the CAI kernels as the supplied kernel is the 2.6.35.7-CAI-test23-HK, or maybe one of bigsupersquids latest kernels.

    If it does work with another kernel let me or thekraven know.

    Bean_Whiz-CM10 ROM/MOD/THEME:

    Bean_Whiz-CM10.v2.2.1. Still has Seeder and the sd ext script. This means you will need a ext.4 partition on your sd card before you can use this version.

    MD5 sum: 4130fa04cb319289bf6d0b3b9772dafb

    Bean_Whiz-CM10.v2.2.2. The entropy_rngd_tool instead of Seeder (Seeder can be a security risk in the right situation). No sd ext script, so you don't have to have a partition on the sd card to use it. I would suggest making a 1.5GB partition on a 16GB sd card or a 1.0GB partition on an 8GB sd card if you plan on using Link2SD. I use Link2SD with this so I have a UI and more control and can put my widget apps onto the internal storage as well as move apps back and forth between system and sd partition. Link2SD is also the best at deleting system app that I don't need. With Link2SD I have 83 downloaded apps and still have over 90MB of free space on the internal storage.

    After sign in you have the choice of the Holo launcher or the TouchWhiz launcher (I did this in case some didn't like the launcher, but like the theme). Let it sit for a couple of minutes then reboot. Now go to the settings menu and choose Theme. Select the TouchWhiz theme. Once it is installed back out and reboot again. After reboot your good to go.
    Be patient during the above process and only select something once. It is a little slow right at first, but once you have rebooted after theme install it should be fine.

    Don't forget: If you need to use the Virgin fix, flash it right after flashing the ROM. Then flash the Gapps.

    Hint: I use Fast Reboot to safely close all apps, then it opens up only those that are needed. This gives me a little more RAM when it gets low.

    Could you post a screen shot of the messaging app with a conversation? Nothing important of course, just a couple of sentences exchanged back and forth.
    The reason I ask is I have no 3G or phone service at this time, but need to see if it looks like the S4's messaging app. It actually has different colored conversation boxes.

    ...see, I JUST RECENTLY had to drop DOWN from SlimROM because CM10 all around was giving my OptiS some real fits in some ways or others. Now you're tempting me to go BACK UP TO IT. (Full color icons in a JB ROM for the OptiS!? YES PLEASE AND THANK YOU!!!)

    As far as an iPhone-themed keyboard, you COULD also just get A.I.type or buy A.I.type+ and select the "iPhone 4" theme from that.

    Battery stats take a while to build up. The time off charge stats in "Battery" section aren't right. Might be very careful with overclocking.
    You need to clear the PlayStore data after restoring backed up apps from Titanium Bakup. Thats about it.

    It's there. It's where I downloaded it from when trying to find a voice search that worked.

    What version of the ROM did you download? I think v2.2.2 with Link2SD is the best way to go.

    As for the old voicesearch.zip gapps ics 20120511, i must be blind, cause i surely don't see them on that page. Not a problem though, i really didn't use voice search that much, i'll use the gapps for the slimrom.

    I'll have to upload the zip to my Mediafire account.

    PS: Don't mess with the CPU speed until after you have everything how you like it and make a backup. Then when you mess with the CPU speed you have a good backup to restore if it really goofs things up.

    WOW. So far, this ROM is pretty beastly!! Running it with both the Touchwiz launcher & Touchwiz theme, and it looks amazing. Tripped out my lil' sister when she saw that it looks just like what's on her new phone (a Samsung Galaxy Ring). Ahhhhh...the priceless awesomesaucity of it all.

    Quick question, though: is there any way you could include the clock widget from the Galaxy S3? (I think it'd have to be the S3's since the S4's is based on the sexy 4.2.2 clock)

    Still working on finding a hacked apk for the Clock widget that has the stopwatch and countdown timer when widget is long pressed.
    Just tested hacked Xperia keyboard that works with this. Will upload to Medifire tomorrow. Will only include in v2.2.2 unless I get enough requests for it in v2.2.1.
