    Default [MOD] Harmonious Bumblebee 2.2

    NOW SUPPORTS NEW AND OLD OPTIMUS V's !

    I made a mod of the latest Harmonia ROM with some apps added, some deleted, some graphical changes and some other added features from the Bumblebee 2.4 ROM. Unfortunately you won't be able to get the full benefit of my custom mod because nearly all the apps I added are paid apps, so you'll have to pay for your own I have however included some free versions (or alternatives) of the apps I did include. Full "changelog" is below.


    DISCLAIMER: I'm not responsible if you bork, brick, or in any other way damage your device. You should always make a nandroid backup, and follow all the directions carefully. Remember the old saying "measure twice, cut once."


    How to make a nandroid: Boot into recovery (Home, Volume down, Power buttons until LG logo appears) and find the backup & restore menu on your recovery. hit backup and watch it go.

    Recoveries: I used IHO Recovery (version 4.0.1.4.3, found here: ) However this should work with most recoveries that support edify scripting.
    If you have a newer OV (the one with the "S" screen) then I'd recommend using BobZhome's modified IHO Recovery as it has the necessary kernel adjustments. found here:


    DISCLAIMER #2: This is a mod, it is not supported by the creators of either Harmonia (LeslieAnn) or Bumblebee (obijohn). Do NOT go to them for help with this mod, post all questions in this thread.


    Screenshots:
    first picture is home screen using the Launcher Pro launcher, second picture is the notification area. (I changed the default background for version 2.0 because well, I figured some females might want to use the ROM but don't like that the default wallpaper is of a girl...lol you can find the original at the bottom of the thread.




    Some info on Harmonia:
    AWESOME battery life!!
    New installer, one of the rare Froyo roms with the newer Edify code to work with the newer recoveries.
    Updated Picastics kernel (with OV based ramdisk) supports old and new OV phones. (thanks to BigSuperSquid!)
    Mvdalvik, this gives you 175megs of storage space (about 40 more than previously available)
    Time without signal fix (Thanks Obijohn!)
    Power Button Reboot option (Thanks Obijohn!)
    Optimized drivers
    Internal wipe gone
    Wifi hotspot built into menu system
    Init.d support built-in
    Updated email (from 2.2.2)
    Updated MMS (from 2.2.2)
    Updated Gmail
    Swype!
    Speed tweaks
    Malware patch
    Everything up to date (Except Market)
    Activate app.
    To read more about the basis of my mod, the original Harmonia ROM: http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...age-fixed.html

    Changelog (what I removed from/added to Harmonia to create this mod):

    [BOX="PowerOn sound"]
    Changed the PowerOn sound (this is the sound that on the stock ROM, loads with the VM bootanimation) to the KDE 3.5 startup sound.
    If you'd just like the sound file:

    On Harmonia it loads with this screen:

    [/BOX]

    [BOX="Sounds!"]
    added the Harmonia sounds zip, so no need to go and flash the ROM then the sounds. This has them both, so all the original sounds from the stock ROM are there (minus the PowerOn sound of course).
    [/BOX]

    [BOX="Graphics!"]
    I added the black bars from the Harmonia thread here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...tml#post847192.


    I also changed the boot animation from the green Harmonia script to the bootanimation.zip that is in the Bumblebee 2.4 ROM (preview below).

    If you'd just like the boot animation, that is here:
    [/BOX]

    [BOX="Other things from Bumblebee"]
    I added the sdspeedfix script and the hosts file (only in 2.1) from the Bumblebee 2.4 ROM. If you load up stock (or the original Harmonia) you should see a difference in how fast your SD card is being read. For more information: The hosts file should help those Bumblebee immigrants feel more at home, as it blocks ads (and is updated as of October 13th, 2011).

    NOTE You don't need to download anything from there. I have already included the files, the link is just for those who want to understand what the script does.

    Also added in version 2.1 and above is the hosts file from Bumblebee. This file blocks most ads.
    [/BOX]

    [BOX="App changes"]
    Added:
    Dolphin Browser HD -
    Chrome to Phone -
    ColorNote -
    File Manager -
    Flashlight -
    Launcher Pro - (I've included both the stock launcher and Launcher Pro, for those that want to choose. If you don't want Launcher Pro, just get a file manager and delete it)
    Links2SD - (for those that want to move their apps to the SD card. Can be removed with a file manager)
    Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Music app (Music 4.0.1) - New Google Music 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich (Thanks to JerryScript for posting this find)
    No Frills CPU Control -
    Titanium Backup -
    Where's My Droid? - (for those times you've lost your phone and can't find it)


    Removed:
    stock browser
    Live wallpapers (I see no point in them, they just waste battery life)
    stock music app
    [/BOX]


    Latest version:
    MD5: 88fe8caed952a8b9b4da5d9eda85d55d

    Changelog:
    Harmonious Bumblebee 2.2 (updated apps and host file, changed status bar text; based off Harmonia 1.7 and Bumblebee 2.4, works with newer OVs): link above.

    Harmonious Bumblebee 2.1 (updated apps, added updated hosts file from Bumblebee; based off Harmonia 1.7 and Bumblebee 2.4, works with the newer OVs): (MD5: 43a9d0e173491064957117d9f8cfd81b)

    Harmonious Bumblebee 2.0 (based off Harmonia 1.7 and Bumblebee 2.4, works with the newer OVs) (MD5: 28a21112d4686c994cdf944dbad9a104)

    Harmonious Bumblebee 1.0 (based off Harmonia 1.6.1c and Bumblebee 2.4, ONLY works with the older OVs unless you add the modified kernel for the newer OVs) - (MD5: b92900a5a095f41702ec2905e9453039)

    Harmonious Bumblebee 1.0 has different apps and a different default wallpaper however. Included in 1.0 is: Links2SD, ES File Manager, ColorNote, Titanium Backup, OpenSignal Maps, No Frills CPU control, Dolphin Browser HD, Chrome to Phone, and Google Music beta.

    I have to give thanks to LeslieAnn and obijohn, for without them creating their ROMs for me to tinker with, I would have never gotten this together

    Certainly.

    I have on mine:

    GrooVe IP

    Google Voice (I didn't add because I didn't know if that many people actually use the GV app. but it is free and I can add as long as Google doesn't send me a cease and desist letter lol)

    Screenshot It () - Has a trial free version, but after the trial is over then you're stuck with it on your ROM, unless you get a file manager to delete it.

    I removed the stock Swype files and installed the Swype beta, however I was told Swype would frown upon placing the updated beta files on the new ROM, so I left it out)

    and Root Explorer - (which ES File Explorer replaced)

    The rest that are on my ROM as core apps are purely for my own purposes, like the Unified Remote (paid version), Photo Vault/Video Vault (to keep those "special" pictures away from the regular gallery), Beautiful Widgets (I didn't see a free version for that), and Green Power battery saver but unfortunately the free version of that didn't like being installed in system.

    I was originally going to put on Terminal Emulator as well, but alas it doesn't like being put in system either, and I haven't learned enough to edit the install instructions so I could install things to the /data partition.

    Now if you have a file manager, you could go in and delete all these apps and just use the ROM for the speed tweaks and graphical changes.

    Thank you. I have some of those already!

    I'm thinking of trying your mod. Hey, if I don't like it I can always revert to my Nandroid of Harmonia. If I do, I will be back to let you know what I think!

    When installing, do you recommend just wiping the cache and dalvik cache? Or should I do more?

    I'd probably recommend doing more, just because I like getting rid of my chances of screwing up. lol

    But I don't think I changed THAT much...so I guess you could try just wiping cache and dalvik...

    (I've always wiped everything when installing a new ROM lol)

    Do you just delete the file in /system/apps or are there other files for each program in other directories?

    Of a lot of the programs I replaced, I just deleted the file in /system/apps.

    I'm currently using Harmonia 1.6.1c but I'm considering using your rom. Some of the things I would of liked to change about Harmonia you have done: Via the bootup and deleting browser. Lets give it a go.

    Any chance you could post the boot animation...? I have looked under the bumblebee ROM and could not find it posted, and felt it was best not to resurrect the thread.

    Greatly appreciated...

    Sure, I'll have to do it a little later since I'm on my phone and it's on my desktop. But the boot animation won't be in the bumblebee thread because it wasn't something that was added afterwards, it was included in the ROM.

    EDIT: got the bootanimation out of the zip and uploaded it. Link here: (also added it to the first post)

    Hi, I've been wanting to try this ROM out for a while now but I noticed Harmonia has an update of 1.7. Would you possibly be able to make a 1.7 version of this MOD? Thanks.

    If you use the BB kernel, you will remove the newer OV display compatibility which Harmonia 1.7 has.
    Other than that, the updates are minor.

    Duly noted, but nope, still uses the Picasticks kernel. So as long as I don't screw anything up it all should still work

    Not that's its ugly or anything, I just don't like branded stuff. Is there a way to remove the Harmonia logo at the beginning? Also the sound. I like my stuff silent.

    The logo at the beginning is part of the boot kernel, so no easy way to change that without editing that file. Which can be done, but I dunno how lol (the harmonia logo is in every harmonia build from LeslieAnn)

    The sound at boot can be silenced/changed by deleting and/or replacing the PowerOn.mp3 file located in /sounds/poweron (I'm pretty sure that's where it is, if I'm wrong then sorry)

    Thanks, I'll look for it. Great MOD BTW. I love both Harmonia and Bumblebee.

    Once the 1.7 version comes out, would you be able to link me to where I can get the green startup screen of the Android bot instead of the blue? I just have a green phone case and I'd want it to match (yes I'm weird like that) . It would be possible to change the startup image right?

    Yup you can technically change both, but the Harmonia logo at the very beginning would be quite hard to modify and have it work, so I've been told. But the blue boot animation is just a file called bootanimation.zip and I believe it goes straight into /media but I'm on my phone and not running this MOD right now so I can't check but I'll let you know what I find

    Nice MOD!

    One issue I ran into...
    I went from BB 2.4 to Harmonious Bumblebee 2.0 and my Links2SD could no longer mount the 2nd partition on my SD card. Did a full wipe and ran the Bumblebee Wiper 1.3 for good measure before installing the new ROM. Went back to BB 2.4 and was able to mount the ext3 partition again. Not sure why.

    Also, any way to have the "Harmonious Bumblebee 2.0" take up only one line in the Notifications pull-down?

    It must be something Bumblebee has that Harmonia doesn't...I dunno what though. I know ticojpunk said that he got links2sd to work with regular harmonia but he had to set it up as fat 32. The farthest I've gotten was that it wouldn't mount the second partition at all. I'll have to take a look at bumblebee to see if there's anything I can do to fix that.

    As for the notification area, you'd have to edit the build.prop file. Find "ro.cdma.home.operator" and then if you delete the 2.0 off the end, or maybe just the .0 it could fit on the one line.

    Thanks, I'll try FAT32 and let you know if it works. The recovery I'm using (CWMA V-edition) creates 2nd partition as Ext3.

    EDIT: I reformatted the 2nd partition to FAT32 and it works fine now. Thanks for the suggestion!

    For editing build.prop file, is that something I can do with the ROM already installed? (and easiest way to do it?)
