  1. ROM Help

    So, I got stoned and decided to try a custom ROM, it was ill-advised because I accidentally wiped my SD card which included my Recovery backups. Yeah, super smart. So, I am using woundtights's AICP ROM, but it isn't working entirely right. For one, whenever I try to open Security Settings so I can enable unknown sources, settings crashes. So I can't install apps from my SD card. Also, once I install an app, I can't uninstall through settings...settings crashes. I have to delete apps from the system manually. Also, WIFI doesn't work. Mobile data works, but after I restart the device I have to turn mobile network settings on and off to get it to turn on. I am hoping someone here might guide me to resolving these issues? This ROM would be great if I could solve these issues. Sent from my trlteusc using Tapatalk
  2. ROM Help

    Well, gapps didn't help and the alpha ROM doesn't have more issues than the other five ROM's I've tried. At least the issues are consistent: no WiFi, security settings cause settings to crash. At this point, I just need to figure out which problematic ROM I like best. The SlimROM is small so I may go with that, but I've gotten used to this AICP ROM at this point. I need to get WoundTights deknoxed stock ROM, I think that's probably going to be the only one without issues....unfortunately its stock which means it will attempt to resist everything I do with it.

  3. ROM Help

    Well, I'm taking that under advisement. I'm currently downloading SlimROM alpha official, and once it downloads I'm going to also download the gapps package recommended for it. In the past, I ignored gapps because I used Blackmart as my play store, but that was a long time ago and everything has changed. I use Google apps now so I'm going to find out. Hopefully, that will fix the issues I've been experiencing. Thank you for your input, I appreciate it. Sent from my trlteusc using Tapatalk
  4. ROM Help

    Uh, no, due to WiFi not working Im downloading on a slow data connection, and many of the download links are broken Sent from my trlteusc using Tapatalk
  5. The following ROM's don't like me or my phone: Beanstalk 5.0050-20150308-trlteusc Beanstalk 5.0050-20150321-trlteusc SlimROM v.5.1 AICP v.9.0 Sent from my trlteusc using Tapatalk
  6. What Rom Is Everyone Running?

    I'm running an AICP build by woundtight. WIFI doesn't work, and mobile data turns off every time I restart and I have to screw with it to get it to turn on. I tried a Beanstock ROM by WT, but the setup wizard crashes so I had to restore my broken AICP build. Sent from my trlteusc using Tapatalk
  7. ROM Help

    Well Beanstock was a bust. The Setup Wizard stopped and decided to tell me about it every 2.5 seconds. So, I continue my pursuit of a ROM that doesn't have issues. I have to consider the possibility that I am doing something wrong during install or something. So far, every ROM I've tried has been the result of effort made by WoundTight, so I may need to try a different author. No offense to WT, I just have no luck with his ROM's. It's quite disheartening.

  8. ROM Help

    But I'm less than optimistic that I would be successful at building a ROM. ROM's used to be so easy to modify. I miss those days. The last ROM I attempted to modify went less than spectacularly. Sent from my trlteusc using Tapatalk
  9. ROM Help

    I've downloaded Beanstock-5.0050-20150321-trlteusc as well as gapps-kk20140105. I downloaded a previous version of Beanstock but it had issues. I am hoping that this version will prove fruitful. If not, then I may start the necessary knowledge building required for developing my own custom ROM. Sent from my trlteusc using Tapatalk

  12. Custom ROM, No wifi

    I finally bought a Laptop, its an HP Elitebook 8440p...Core i5 at 2.6Ghz, 4Gb RAM so I am a little closer to working on my issues. I'm going to track down some kernels, and see about updating hardware firmware, maybe I can get this sorted Sent from my trlteusc using Tapatalk
  13. So after flashing a couple ROMs, I found an issue with WiFi not working, and the menu "Security" selection crashes so no unknown sources. Research has led me to believe that it may be a recovery issue as in the recovery isn't flashing everything correctly. I use TWRP v.3.0.2-0 which...is the latest? Anyway, I'm curious if anyone else is having problems.
  14. ROM Help

    I flashed AICP V.9.0? I believe. Flashing stock would probably be wise, but stock ROM's are rather resilient to changes which I assume is due to the Kernel. I would greatly prefer a custom ROM. I'm considering getting Temeseks Cyanogen 13, but I will probably work on the AICP....maybe I can get it to work? Doubtful, but I am going to try. Thank you for responding so soon.

  15. Boot Animation

    Yes, they do. I figured that out eventually as I looked into it more. However, its no longer an issue...I got high and accidentally wiped everything in my phone including external SD, so I'm now running woundtight's AICP ROM which has some issues, but the boot animation isn't among them. In fact, despite the issues I have more freedom with the custom ROM. No surprise there. Sent from my trlteusc using Tapatalk
  16. Boot Animation

    Has anyone had any luck modifying the boot animation? I attempted to but only managed to remove the original and decided to call that victory. Sent from my SM-N910R4 using Tapatalk
  17. Virus'?

    So I've spoken to people who will swear that their phone (has/has had) a virus. Is this really a thing? I have never gotten a virus on an android device. I keep an AV handy as it is better to err on the side of caution, but I have never seen it detect anything. Are AV programs really necessary on android? Sent from my SM-N910R4 using Tapatalk

  19. [Root] Note 4 Sys App Pains

    My phone seems to be an anomoly. I got one that just isn't quite right. ROM Toolbox didn't recognize root until threw a copy of SU in (system/su/bin...?) a system folder. I just got a new laptop so I may see if I can Odin and / or flash something differently...maybe something isn't right. I had a couple issues with recovery and root. Sent from my SM-N910R4 [ROOT]
  20. [Root] Note 4 Sys App Pains

    When I rooted my phone I though my problems were over, but instead discovered that removing system apps is more difficult than expected. I have to fight the phone for every app I manage to pry out of it, as well as anything I want to add as a system app. I managed to get Apex Launcher, Lucky Patcher, ROM Toolbox Pro, and System App Manager installed on the system partition but its hit or miss when it comes to adding system apps. I've found that removal of apps is as easy as deleting them from system/app with a root file explorer. It is a pain though because removing some apps makes the phone act weird so I have to backup the phone through recovery, make changes, then make sure it boots and acts right, then make a new backup etc... The phone is stubborn. I need to flash a new ROM, but am still trying to decide which one to go with.
  21. App...decription(s)?

    Yeah, it definitely seemed reasonable to me when I tried that. If the information isn't absent altogether, I often am left without a credible source. It is a frustration, to be sure. Sent from my SM-N910R4 [ROOT]
  22. App...decription(s)?

    Is there a site or something that lists .apk's so I might know what purpose they serve? I am trying to get rid of crapware, but it isn't always clear what an .apk does based on the name or icon. One example would be "Tag.apk." WTF is it, and why did they...ugh. Anyway, if anyone knows of a database or site or something it would be great. Thx. Sent from my SM-N910R4 using Tapatalk
  23. Virus'?

    My experience reflects yours more or less. I use to argue the point with people, but they are quite certain they've been infected. I have never, ever, ever seen a phone I suspected of actually having a virus, but am glad to have my perspective reinforced. Sent from my SM-N910R4 using Tapatalk
  24. [Root] Note 4 Sys App Pains

    No, I set SuperSU to auto-grant root so that I dont have to micromanage. I even crammed TB onto the system partition. I don't really have any use for TB, to be honest. Sent from my SM-N910R4 using Tapatalk
  25. Custom ROM, No wifi

    The only ROMs I've used were ones posted by Wound Tight or others here. But, thank you for your input that may be useful info to have should I choose to revisit custom ROM. At this point, I think I'll continue work on my rooted stock ROM. I think I'll be able to live with it once I strip it of all the useless crap. Sent from my SM-N910R4 using Tapatalk
