This rom is my own creation based on the best (in my opinion) features available from other roms. I've found it super stable and pretty darn fast. This is my daily driver, and I'll always keep updating it for myself, but if there's enough interest, I'll release new versions here as well.
I'd like to thank all the rom developers before me, especially Bigxie(aka Fabolous), Mobile_Sensei, and Jrummy. Without their work, the blur based roms would suck.
A little about the rom:
I've always liked just a little bit of blur to make sure my phone can use 100% of its features, like hdmi, 720p recording, multiple mics used in video recording. I also hate the blur email app for exchange usage. So, I threw out the garbage, and brought in some goodies. Yes, there's two galleries (3D and blur) that's because I like the blur camera but love the 3d gallery. Keeping both just makes my experience more smooth. After switching back and forth from rom to rom, liking one feature here and another there, I began compiling my own apps and settings to run on my phone. I figure it's time to share and see what everyone else thinks of it.
You should be able to install this coming from any 602 or 605 rom. Recommend you have baseband .13p already.
- Download To SD-Card
- Bootstrap With D2 Bootstrap & Reboot Into CWR
- Wipe Data / Cache / Dalvik Cache
- Install the zip
- Go through initial setup
A little about the vortex script:
-Mount system for read write
-Mount system for read only
-Enable startup scripts (enabled by default)
-Disable startup scripts (in case you have some kind of issue)
-Fix CWR Reboot Option(only use if having superuser fc's and you've cleared superuser data)
-Set App install location to SDcard
-Set App install location to Internal(Default)
-Set App install location to Auto
-Change Carrier Text (changes pulldown text)
-Reboot phone (just in case)
Run the script as su in terminal emulator and use the menu
Also available are shortcuts:
As su, run the script with options:
vortex -rw (will mount system as read write)
vortex -ro (will mount system as read only)
vortex -enablestartup (enable startup scripts)
vortex -removestartup (disable startup scripts)
vortex -fixEmail (one time fix for moving from aosp email to cm7, v1.2 to v1.3)
vortex -fixCWR (will restore the superuser database to grant the reboot from power options su permission)
