    Default [Retired][ROM]Superclean 2.9.2 EA15/EB01/EB16/EC10 Based

    The last superclean thread became totally unmanageable due to its sheer size. It was growing at a rate of three pages or more a day, and its impossible with a thread that size to find answers to questions already asked.

    Original thread is here:
    http://forum.androidcentral.com/veri...8-updated.html

    So I am redesigning this thread to be a little more useful, and get some preliminary data out of the way.

    So, without further adue:

    FAQ

    Q: What is superclean?

    A: Superclean is a Samsung based rom, that was not built from source. Roms of this nature are typically copy and paste, zipped moddifications of OEM roms. This is no exception and I make no allegations to anything other than that.

    Q: Why not source built?

    A: As awesome as a source built, or aosp rom is, not everything is working yet. The folks working on aosp are far smarter than me. So while I can build roms from source, I myself lack the required knowledge to fix that which is broken, and Samsung went too far off the reservation for me to do much with it.

    Q: I thought jt1134 made the superclean roms?

    A: Quite true. Once he started working on aosp full time, he handed the reigns to me, as he didn;'t have the time to keep maintaining it. However, what started as a continuation from his work, ported to DL09 Eclair, has now taken a life and direction of its own, since EB01.

    Q: Is superclean just a stripped rom?

    A: Yes, and no. I stripped A LOT of touchwiz apps from it, modified the touchwiz framework, and replaced the launcher with that from Gingerbread. This aint no sippin' tea. Once the touchwiz apps were removed, I removed A LOT of the verizon framework, and some of the Samsung framework (drm). Then, modifications were made to current apps and framework, by me and other folks in the community. Bing has been removed, and completely eradicated. Visual voice mail, has been eradicated, and the dialer even has a proper working voice mail button (mapped to google voice). The car dock has all working functions, minus Bing. Unlike the original car dock with EB01, this one even has a car dock dialer.

    Q: Is superclean based on EB01?

    A: Not entirely. Since 2.6, it has been a mixture. EA15, and EB16 are test roms meant for USCC. In many ways, they are superior, but we cannot use them directly. So I parted them out.

    Most apps were EB16. This includes the bluetooth functions. All hardware, touchwiz, maps, and obex framework is from EB16. The rest of the framework is from EB01. The car dock application is from EA15.
    Many of the audio libs are from EB16, as well as some audio configurations kept in /system/etc.

    Q: What files have been modified for extra/better functionality in superclean?

    A: As of 2.8:

    Framework.jar
    Android.policy.jar
    Framwork-res.apk
    twframework-res.apk
    CarCradle.apk
    Settings.apk
    Browser.apk
    Camera.apk
    Mms.apk


    Google apps were updated, as well as a few added. The rom is deodexed, allowing for mods and themes, while saving space. It is zipaligned, which can lower ram useage of apps.

    Q: How is battery life?

    A: Battery life is a mixed bag. Some find it awesome, some find it horrible. This is currently out of my hands. All Froyo versions and roms currently have their issues with keeping the phone from sleeping. While I made not have these issues, many do, and it cannot be denied that there is a problem somewhere. There is no one direct cause that I have found, as of yet.

    Some tips that have helped others:

    Turn off GPS when not in use.
    Open/close Maps.
    Turn off auto rotate when not in use.
    Try DL09 modem.

    Q: Why does my GPS suck?

    A: Samsung decided to change some things for the GPS in Froyo. I don't have the specifics, but in short, it doesn't work quite as well as it did for DL09. There is no longer a gpssetup app, although ephemeris data is still beuing pulled. I myself don't have too much issue, but some do.

    Some tips that have helped others:

    Turn on GPS from Settings, not QuickPanel, at least for the first time.
    Make sure Google Location services is enabled.
    Try to lock on, while outside.
    Download GPS Aids from the market.




    Q: Why can't I get my MMS while connected to wifi?

    A: Make sure Data is still enabled in Quick Panel. When MMS is received, your connection will use 3G to download it, and 3G alone. If you miss it the first time, chances are it will never download.

    Q: I cannot send and/or receive text messages?

    A: You need AT LEAST, a DL09 modem with this rom.


    Q: I installed a theme, and now the phone crashes and <insert function> no longer works?

    A: I encourage folks to use themes, but I cannot support them. Please discuss this with the theme owner. Thanks!

    Q: My phone goes to sleep, only to never wake up!

    A: I'd love to take credit for this, but cannot. This seems to be a common Froyo bug. I have been unable to track it down, but it seems to happen MUCH less frequently to those who do NOT restore with Titanium backup. So I've little doubt its a rogue app(s) out there.

    Q: I cannot use the back button in Contacts!

    A: Try recreating your Contacts shortcut.

    Q: I need an app you removed, where do I get it?

    A: I include patches with my rom, in a list. If you don't see something, let me know, and I will do my best to get it to you.

    I will add to this Q and A as time goes on.

    Some other useful tips given by members:

    Quote Originally Posted by Gizmodroid

    If you return to a stock package that includes a stock recovery and kernel then your phone will overwrite CWM when you reboot. So after you odin the CWM recovery, do not let it boot fully before flashing superclean.

    SuperClean installs the latest CWM during it's install. Do not flash CWM after the SuperClean. At best, it is unnecessary. At worst, you are flashing an older file.


    Some general tips:
    Flash the rom, preferably when the device is full on battery.
    Clear dalvik-cache, via cwr, and if you have problems still, consider a data wipe.
    Do not restore data via Titanium backup, although apps, *should* be ok. If you have problems after restoring data, I promise, its not by my doing.
    Change wifi sleep policy under wireless settings to never when plugged in.



    Now for the fun stuff, the rom!

    I release superclean in two versions currently, voodoo and non voodoo. It includes recovery kernels for both. These roms support clockwork recovery 3.0 ONCE INSTALLED. They cannot be installed with CWR 3.0, due to serious issues I had with Edify scripting. This goes with the patches as well. Some, if not all of this probably stems from the fact that we are using BML partitions, while the rest of the sane world uses MTD. It may also be that I need an update binary from Samsung and not Google. I'll have to investigate that.

    Patches are all installed via cwr 2.5.x, along with the rom.



    Screenshots:



    Changelog:

    EC10 source built kernel. Uses jt's source, has bln/voodoo color/voodoo sound as expected. Is further undervolted than jt's. Voodoo only. For nonvoodoo add, a disable_lagfix file or folder to a Voodoo directory on your sdcard.


    2.92

    --Full rom again.
    --Based upon EA15/EB01/EB16/EC10
    --Contains EC10 kernels, with fake hotspot monitoring module.
    --Some framework reworked to remove what I believe to be the LAST of Bing.
    --Auto restore of apps should no longer happen (nor is possible).

    Voodoo


    Nonvoodoo


    --Just a small note. I didn't get a lot of feedback from my testers or IRC, so please note issues (not via PM!). Thanks.


    2.9.1 patch (Requires 2.9, DO NOT FLASH IF YOU WANT TO KEEP LOCKSCREEN MUSIC CONTROLS!!!)

    --Tweaked the GPS in an attempt at faster locking.
    --Removed aosp and rotary music controls as there were crashes and random reboots reported (for me as well).
    --Added media scanner tweak scripts. Run from adb shell or terminal emulator (with su)
    fast_media disables system scanning
    default_media puts it back to default
    Both will reboot you after running.
    Note: if you wipe while fast_media has been set, you will lose your ringtones and media sounds until you set default_media.

    Voodoo and Nonvoodoo compatible


    2.9:

    --Moved backed to tried and true eb01 kernels. Sorry tetherers, the modded eb16 kernels were just way too unstable.
    --Made certain non voodoo had latest recovery.
    --Music controls on aosp and rotary lockscreen, credit to sbrissen.
    --Modded Development settings to include working settings to keep screen on while charging.
    --Messaging application has been modded to have the goofy Samsung colors toned down some. Thanks, kenesis. Ported from here:
    --Re-added verizon location services framework in an attempt to get better working GPS.
    --Contacts have been reverted back to eb01 for stability.
    --Date and time are now in the notification bar.
    --tw calculator added back in. Lets face it, its more functional.

    FOR THOSE WITH TIME LAG ISSUES:

    Some testing has been performed in IRC, and beautiful Widgets may be the culprit. If you have it, uninstall it and see how things go.

    ROM:
    Non voodoo


    Voodoo


    Mirror:

    Voodoo








    Kernels(optional):
    It has been brought to my attention that eb16 kernels are not converting voodoo for some in 2.8.
    As an alternative, I am supplying links to these eb01 kernels.

    Non voodoo



    Voodoo


    Kernels included in 2.8 (warning, may not be eb16)

    I rooted for the first time last week (2.6).

    Questions:
    What is the difference between Nonvoodoo and Voodoo?
    When updating versions (Like if I go to 2.8), does the phone get wiped again?
    Kernels? Can I possibly get a quick answer to, "What exactly are Kernels with regards to phones, and in what situation should I be concerned about updating them?

    Thanks.

    Here's some informative reading that will answer your question.

    When updating versions (Like if I go to 2.8), does the phone get wiped again?
    No but you should perform a backup, a dalvik cache wipe and maybe even cache partition as well to be safe, prior to flashing.

    Kernels? Can I possibly get a quick answer to, "What exactly are Kernels with regards to phones, and in what situation should I be concerned about updating them?
    With EB16 kernel, it has the dummy wifi tethering capability as far as difference between that and the EB01 is not much at all. You can try flashing each one and decide with which one suits you better.

    no it does not, it will only flash the OS and Kernel, if you want the DL09 or EB01 you either need to already have them or flash them via Odin

    Yup same directions just use one of those files, but chances are if you are running 2.6 you already have one of those modems. you can check this by
    Settings>about phone>baseband should end in either DL09 or EB01

    Now for my question, This does not make sense to me, i have flashed 2.8 and when i boot into recovery i still get e:missing bitmap....etc

    I was under the impression that fully function CWM ALL was the latests version. I mean besides 3.x. which wouldnt make sense to instruct people to flash since its not fully functional.

    He is saying not to flash another CWM but dont you need to either flash CWM all via odin ,,, or ,,,, already have update.zip for "new" CWM on your SD card, so either way depends on what your starting point was,,,,,so to me this statement is misleading unless for everyone else CWM All is popping up after flashing and im just the one off dummy.

    Yeah, that didn't make sense to me either because he is referencing jt1134's thread at XDA which is CWM-ALL, and I've never known any of the superclean ROMs to include cwm. CWM-ALL installs directly to your boot partition which is why it doesn't need update.zip and you can boot directly to it. For the voodoo people it stays permanent, but for us nonvoodoo people we lose it whenever we flash a new ROM. This is because he is correct in saying the stock kernel replaces CWM-ALL with stock recovery. I have just gotten in the habit of reflashing CWM-ALL every time I flash a new ROM.
    Shouldn't we treat this world like the Garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?

    Your mileage may vary but reasons were already put in the FAQ. Please refer to that.

    Well, you can try the eb01 kernels, but truth is, if one works and the other does not...I wouldn't be looking at the phone...

    The .zip in this thread is flashed through clockworkmod, not odin. The odin files are in DroidXcon's thread

    yup. Just wipe cache and go to Advanced-Wipe Dalvik Cache before flashing.
