ParanoidAndroid 3+ – JellyBean 4.2.2 for Elf II, Aurora II, Crystal, Flame Fire, Hero, Zenithink C97 / C93 (update 2013-07-13)

Issues

* Who knows… This build has been compiled using GCC 4.7 and includes “heavy” optimizations (O3, Linaro’s strings, NEON memcpy and Linaro’s graphite)

Instructions (first installation)

* Grab TWRP recovery from this thread, unzip it and put uImage_recovery in the root of the external MicroSD card.
* Put rom (pa_elf2-3.x-$DATE-$TIME.zip) and gapps (gapps-jb-$DATE-signed-ubifs.zip) files inside internal or external sdcard.
* Turn on the tablet keeping pressed VOL- and POWER untill you see the green droid.
* Flash this file that will format /system, /data and /cache partitions, and from “Wipe” menu erase “Android secure”.
* If you wanna wipe internal memory content you can flash this file.
* NEVER flash this two “wiping” zips file posted above if you’re using an EXT4 partitioned device, in this case just do a “Factory reset” from TWRP.
* Flash rom (pa_elf2-3.x-$DATE-$TIME.zip), gapps (gapps-jb-$DATE-signed-ubifs.zip) and, the required compatibility zip (and the eventual “MultiUser zip” if you’re using a “MU” comp zip).
* Now select “Reboot system”.
* Enjoy ParanoidAndroid!

Instructions (upgrades)

* Take a backup of Paranoid preferences from “Settings” -> “Hybrid properties” -> “Tools” -> “Backup preferences”.
* Turn off the tablet and turn it on keeping pressed VOL- and POWER untill you see the green droid.
* Flash rom (pa_elf2-3.x-$DATE-$TIME.zip), gapps (gapps-jb-$DATE-signed-ubifs.zip) and, the required compatibility zip (and the eventual “MultiUser zip” if you’re using a “MU” comp zip).
* Now select “Reboot system”.
* After the upgrade restore Paranoid preferences from “Settings” -> “Hybrid properties” -> “Tools” -> “Restore preferences” and confirm the reboot question.
* Enjoy your freshly updated ParanoidAndroid!

FAQs

* If you wanna use a USB bluetooth device flash this zip after each rom update (flash it after the comp zip, practically as last file). It supports only CSR devices, they can be identified typing “lsusb” from an app like “terminal emulator”: the supported device will be present with an entry like “Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0a12:0001″ (“0a12:0001″ is the supported VID:PID). Do not boot with the bluetooth plugged in; plug it once you booted to android.
* If you don’t like Nexus 7 fingerprint and wanna use SGS-II instead flash this zip. Remember that changing fingerprint may screw Play Store, if it happens you’ll have to perform a “wipe data / factory reset”.
* WiFi now can stay enabled with display turned off. Note that if WiFi is enabled the tablet won’t enter deep sleep so if you’re more interestead in battery life instead of an always on WiFi change policy (on “Advanced” WiFi settings) from “Always” to “Never”.
* Internal memory is mounted at /storage/sdcard0, external sdcard is mounted at /storage/sdcard1. If you wanna swap them (and make primary your real microsd) just flash this file after flashing rom’s zip (you have to do it everytime you flash a new version of the rom and it is incompatible with multi user)
* If you wanna format your internal memory (it’s corrupted, filled of crap, etc.) just flash this file from CWM / TWRP.
* It’s better if you don’t change governor because the included “ondemand” has been customized to support “boostpulse” feature of jelly bean power hal. You can control min/max cpu frequency with display on/off editing these entries in /system/build.prop file (they’re listed with their default value): “ro.sys.min_cpu_on=408000″, “ro.sys.max_cpu_on=1200000″, “ro.sys.min_cpu_off=96000″, “ro.sys.max_cpu_off=1008000″.
