Today I released the first nightly in the broodROM JB Series, it can be downloaded here
This version is fully built with Linaro (Cortex A8 Optimized) Toolchain, ROM built with “-o2″ , modules are built with “-o3″
It includes many new features, such as the new 3.4.45 kernel with OC/UV and Backup Manager. but its a nightly so don’t expect everything to work properly.
Most bugs are common to me because I didn’t code/fixed them yet. Anyways bug reports are always welcome!
At April 21, I posted that my “how to recover from a bootloop” tutorial was on the XDA Portal, but now it happened again but to my newer tutorial “adding features for your kernel”. Thank you XDA!

Nowadays I’m getting more and more spam messages (they still need to be approved but its still annoying) So I decided that you must have an account now in order to comment. I apologize to the real people who get fucked by the spambots…
Last weeks I’ve been collecting results regarding broodROM JB Release 3, I found the battery results very stunning.
At first I saw this screenshot and I was like Ah, that’s nice.
Then a while later I saw this screenshot and I was like, wow, this is sick.
But today, I saw this screenshot and I was traveling outside of the boundaries of the universe!
Also I made a little calculation
100 – 83 = 17
100 / 17 = 5.88
5.88 * 45 (hours of 17% drain) = 264
264 / 24 (days) = a little more then 11 days
broodROM JB Loves your battery!
Since I’m a Recognized Developer on XDA I’ve got this Invite for the XDA:DevCon in Miami, it’s located in one of the high class Hilton Hotels. It’s a really awesome opportunity but I don’t think I can raise enough money to visit the XDA:DevCon unfortunately. check www.xda-devcon.com
The PM I received:
“Dear ERDs and RDs,
Recently we asked your opinion about XDA doing a developer conference, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. We are going live with the announcement this morning for xda:devcon – a conference where developers from across the spectrum can gather and collaborate with other developers; where you can learn more about app development, UI/UX design, app security, root apps, and more.
The conference will be in Miami, Florida the weekend of August 9th to 11th, 2013 at the Conrad Hilton, a gorgeous hotel just off the Bay of Biscayne. We’ll have speakers, free food, giveaways, etc. We expect only 100 – 150 attendees, and the early registration fee is only $75. That said, RD and ERDs do not have to pay this! Just book a flight (or train or whatever) and send your travel receipt to email@example.com. We’ll reply with a unique code for free conference registration.
We’ve done everything we can to keep the costs to you as low as possible, including pre-negotiating room rates of $129/night (breakfast included!) and choosing Miami in the off-season (cheap flights!). The hotel booking code is:
*** REMOVED ***
Go to xda-devcon.com for more info, and we look forward to seeing you there in Miami. We have a lot in store for you!
XDA & xda:devcon Staff”
Maybe I can’t go this year, but who knows what next year will offer me
This weekend I saw that there was a new post on the XDA Portal pages, it’s called XDA-University: Flashing and Bootlooping
It’s a reference to 2 tutorials on XDA-U and one of them is mine the “How to recover from a bootloop” tutorial, it’s has already been posted for a while. But it didn’t reach for the XDA front page so far.
I hope to place more tutorials on XDA-U in the future
Thanks to some more lib removing and replacing the whole bin structure I gained another rough 10mb.
Also support for the Galaxy W (GT-i8150) has been added.
Check out the post for the latest 0.2 version
More bone then Android
This is a new small (literally and practically) project that aims for the smallest rom size possible. The barebone rom can be used for whatever you find it handy for, I don’t have any mind blowing idea on how to make it awesome so far, but I think it can become handy in some cases.
I just started this for fun, always wanted to know from the start how small a rom can be and still function. also I wanted to make my own repo manifest, which I also did now (current support is for ariesve and ancora)
Also this ROM is of course not for daily usage, so I don’t want people asking me where the CM settings are in this rom
Take a look on the project page !
I made the very first tool (i9500 Quick Flasher) and ROM (broodROM S4 RC1) for the Galaxy S4. I don’t have the device so can’t test it,
But I made my point by posting the tool/rom as first of all tools/roms

This is a tutorial about how to download and compile specific parts in aosp based roms (such as CM10)
Written for AOSP noobs like me a year ago.
Downloading rom sources is done with the tool “repo”, this is the most awesome downloader in existence. Not only it looks very cool, it also reaches top speed at all times. But it’s only for linux (which is good since when you are busy with aosp roms you should be on linux)
Why is it awesome? Since you decide yourself how many jobs (aka connections) you make with the server. This means you always will get top speed, there is probably no faster download method available on the Internet (except for speedtests, but they don’t count). Next to the downloading of specific parts it’s of course also handy to know how to actually compile them.
