ROM EviLocity 1.0 Android 2.2 Rabid ROM ----- Elocity A7+ ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted Image
Main features:
- Fully rooted with proper edit to boot.img for ro.secure+0 in the default.prop
- Based on last official 3.0022 firmware ( All A7+ no old A7 components).
- Edited proper default prop to 0,1,1,1 instead of 1,0,0,0
- Removed bloat apps
- Added EStrong Suite - Task, Security, and File Manager, and Rootexplorer.
- WiFi tweaks.
- Build.prop edits for performance, ram consumption (360MB free, varies).
- 1% Battery MOD
- Some graphics and font changes
- Duplicated libraries deleted.
- Some build.prop tweaks to improve performance, wifi responsiveness, and better ram consumption, etc
- Use UOT screen transitions
- New boot animation. "Zombies" ( unfortunately the system boots so fast now, you only get to see the whole thing the first boot. LOL)
- As far a testing goes everything works

Issues - None it did not have already(so far). Still has the SOD (sleep of death) issue. I have found that utilities that can set WiFi to "sleep never" help and I used Overclock widget to set the minimum power to 500MHZ. The system by default drops to about 150-200MHZ and when it drops that low it seems to hang. I have also found having something plugged into the USB can be removed and replaced quickly and the remount causes it to let you take it out of sleep. Perhaps other overclock tool can do the same and work better?

Download EviLocityV1.0

When installing an 8GB or smaller microsd works well.

Install Instructions:
This runs like a normal update so you should still have your apps, but the following is the best way to flash this ROM. Either way backup your files before using.

If by using this mod the world comes to and end, or you are suddenly sucked back in time only to accidentally kill your grandfather leaving your future uncertain, I take no responsibility for the consequences. Oh yeah. same thing if it screws up your tablet.

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. REMEMBER TO BACKUP ANY THING YOU WANT SAVE BEFORE FOLLOWING THESE INSTRUCTIONS. THIS WILL WIPE YOUR TABLET TO A CLEAN FACTORY-ISH STATE.

I have not tried using the built in update process in the system settings, feel free to give it a shot first, but this is the best way in MHO. Always have at least 50% battery but better still be plugged into power.

1. Copy the the update.zip file to a microsd either directly on your PC or through USB to the tablet external drive. In this case /sdcard/sdcard-disk0. Make sure it is the only update file on the card.
NEVER INSTALL ANY UPDATE FROM THE INTERNAL STORAGE. If something should go wrong you could be stuck with that same image reloading every time you try to go into recovery and you may never have a way to remove or get past it.

2. With the tablet powered off power on by holding down power button for two seconds, then release and press again and hold until you see the message " Hold power for 5 sec...."

3. Release power after the message "booting recovery kernel".

4. Wait until the Android with the triangle and exclamation over it's head pops up.

5. Press the home button to bring up the recovery menu. Use back to move down, and menu to select

6. Scroll down and select Wipe data & cache, then select Yes delete all user data . The tablet will reboot, just press and hold power until you see the recovery loading message again.

7. When complete select Wipe cache partition and wait until complete.

8. Select Apply update from external sdcard.

9. Scroll to the update.zip file and select it.

10. Wait for it to complete then select Reboot system now when prompted. Device will go through a few screen changes just sit back and wait for the boot animation.

The first boot will be slow as it has to rebuild the cache.

If you find this ROM useful, please consider the donate link in my signature.

So far so good...

I was able to apply the update off the USB with no problems.

Smooth snappy system now compared to the stock.

Haven't been able to apply gapps yet...play store crashes everytime I open it.

Gonna do a full wipe and try from the SD card.

I know some people don't like that I usually don't add Gapps or Play to my ROMS. One reason is I don;t use it because to me it never works properly unless you do a full Gapps install, and that just uses resources, when you can get 1mobile and Amazon and between those to apps cover just about everything painlessly.

You could look for the fix_permissions script and download and run it, not sure if it runs on 2.2. Let me mess around with an installed and if it works I will either release it in this thread as an add on or add it to a new ROM version. If fix_permissions works on 2.2 I will add it to my next version.

Thanks for the input.

No worries, I just have so much invested in Google from the early android days, but most new stuff is on my amazon account. So far its been a pretty stable and fast rom compared to stock. I'm surprise this little tablet hasn't gotten a better following as its been up fro grabs in the 75-81 range for the past 4 months.

thanks for your hard work in getting this out there.

I just got two more of these in the mail, so I'll be running this firmware against my old A7+ with rooted Stock ROM + GAPPS. Right now I'm pretty partial to GAPPS, but if there's a significant performance bump, I might be content to go without it. I really like how I can find apps on my computer and send them to the device with GAPPS. APK install from a flashstick works well enough though.

I've gotta get the third running Cyanogenmod, which is something I've yet to play with.

This tablet's up for sale for $70 on 1saleaday right now, fyi.
