I suppose ,this should be the ROM ,you guys have been waiting for 😉
Flash as One Package
File name : Arkas1519.tar.7z
Odin File name : Arkas1519.tar.md5
Yes i had beeen desperately waiting!! :p Thanks..! : Wil flash tomorrow. Should i flash Directly frm the current perseus x?
No backup the apps .factory reset . and then flash .
use stock recovery since the links are broken in Px recovery .
Flash stock ROM .
Ohk so u mean backup n recover apps in stock rom first and then again back up n recover in arkas 1.5,right? N which stock rom? 2.3.6 or 2.3.4? Thanks
Flash stock ROM
it wont boot (File system restriction when jumping from JFS to RFS )
go to recovery with T+power or
#reboot recovery (it’s shell rooted so you can do that when you see I5510)
Factory reset and you are done
Thanks for support , n pls tell me which stock rom should i flash .
Do whatever you want.2.3.4 or 2.3.6.the rom is based on polish 2.3.6. So only radio matters .KPA OR KP1
Thanks .will come back with good feedbacks by tomorrow hopefully 🙂
Just flashed. Things are looking good 😀 But one strange thing happened. Titanium backup is recognizing only 16 apps out of 50+ apps that i had backed up. Although i havent lost anything really important, as I had backed up individual app data separately like go sms,contacts,ultra notes notepad etc……but this may have been serious if i hadnt done so:p
The backups are still in sd card, but manyyy , infact most are not detected by titanium. i wished i used the other backup app lol…and perseus x had actually messed up a lot of things like incorrect backups and restores etc , that may have been a reason too.
But it feels good to start afresh esp. with only required data n apps in phone.!!This ROM seems awesome , n no problems yet like i had in persues x 😀 ..Hope it will be another long term ROM for me like Arkas 0.543 🙂
Oops really sorry. i was a fool yesterday . I had used filter in titanium backup, hence many apps were not visible. titanium backup is great, and so is your ROM… this is the best by far! simply superb… enjoying each moment using my phone..and im not exaggerating! lol
was so much awaited for this one
so it just use usual flash with odin?not little complicated like perseus X right??
One package odin flash.easy .simple. no fur .
PX was/is in different league altogether.
thanks skilled 😀
I dont know how and why!!! but after flashing it as one package in odin, my phone language changed!!!! i did try ur *#272*IMEI# method but it shows XEO and option as instal.. when i click it shows a msg “must be 3 chars” !!!!!!
Just flashed indian csc file using odin! back to ENGLISH!!!
you should have just changed language to english using locale and text .
will the system run if all partitions are on ext4? i’m running Perseus X with willing’s CWM (and it’s actually fairly stable [wifi tether has workaround]). was planning on doing an update.zip method for this.
Well since many problems are encountered due to rfs-bml-ext2-cwm ,this doesnt have ext4 mount point .
Arkas will be rfs-bml due to sheer simplicity .
Perseus will be ext4-CWM for sheer performance .
That way confusion will be less .
The system will RUN with Perseus X kernel btw on ext4 . 😉
i see. thanks for the clarification.
so i can extract the files and build an update.zip using the updater-script of perseus x and use the perseus x kernel while keeping cwm or not possible?
Change to willing’s update binary since I haven’t tested my scripts on CWM .
Use Perseus X update script however .
hory sheet it works!
built an update.zip, works with cwm! thanks for the info.
uses Perseus X kernel.
Arkas 1.5 Einherjar, Perseus X kernel, flashable without Odin. just need some adb commands.
permission to upload and post link here?
No problem 😀 .
oh, wait…having some root issues. going to try to find out why.
superuser permissions are automatically denied even if set to allow, no prompt comes out at all.
Yeah . I had the faint idea that may happen .
Dont worry .
Anyway I am gonna release Perseus X2 soon with dmesg off and some more stuff .
SOC also does not work.
i get this
????dtoolbox???????: permission denied
busybox was not symlinked correctly?
toolbox was not symlinked correctly .
you cant symlink files already present .
tried removing the symlinks in bin and xbin. shell works correctly now. but i’m still getting instant denial on su permissions.
I will make a working zip after some time . 😀 .Not to worry . 😉
thanks. this is driving me insane. tried several times and several methods. can’t root to work for the life of me. the rom itself, however is really fast. next to useless though without root. oh and willingmagic’s tun.ko works. hexedited it to match kernel’s vermagic.
I should do that in next 2-3 days . 😀 .Perseus X2 for power users .
thanks for the fix.
in the meantime though, couldn’t resist. installed it the classic way.
cool bootscreen though i liked dmesg better. makes people go wtf when they see it 😀 hehehe
dmesg is awesome .except the lockscreen sometimes gets on the nerves .LOL.This Rom is actually like Leviathan of Froyo .Stable and Good check point . 😀 .I should dabble in ext4 some more . Though I want a Odin ROM for pX2 since I can use NJ-ext4 instead of ext4 (CWM is good but not that good ) .Will dabble for some time and see the options for the X2
i don’t mind the lockscreen dmesg popup there. something nice to look at
ext4 is nice. ext2 tends to crap out a lot on me.
one more thing though, where can i get mad2sd?
going to try to take a crack at this again.
so next step would be how do i unroot this?
Eiherjar ironically works faster on rfs than on ext4 .ext4 is giving a hell on my phone .root is working.
but music playback is really choppy (try pulling down the notification bar while playing music) and the song will skip. then tested using PX kernel, music playback is fine.
unfortunately, PX kernel does not support rfs. so i’m stuck between a rock and a hard place. i don’t mind using rfs when this problem is solved though.
PX on ext4 is faster than jfs but lots of silent crashes and kinda unstable. strange that ext4 using trisk recovery doesn’t work but when on cwm it boots.
yeah .its repeated on pX2.
what do you mean it’s repeated on pX2? as in the bug still persists?
ext4 is still unusable on ext4 as compared to JFS or reiser .
well as long as there’s a journaled fs in there. i’ve had ext2 crap out on me several times and was greeted with a lot of fc’s then after.
though any idea on the music playback problem?
and unrooting this one? i removed su and superuser.apk and SOC still doesn’t work. hangs at gingerbreak.
us the other method to root since pX kerenel doesnt have ro.secure=0 which is needed for gingerbreak.
what other method?
In the end Rooting means pushing su binary and superuser.apk to /system
gingerbreak is just an exploit used to push the su binary and superuser.apk
Flash as one package in CWM recovery
ah this one. thanks. going to try it out once this boots.
nope, both root234 and root2342 doesn’t work. i type su in adb shell and it still gives me regular shell. like this
and logcat shows
/system/bin/sh executing 0 on /system/bin/sh using shell /system/bin/sh : sh
when i type exit it’s as if i have another shell running.
I will post my broken build tommorow if you want .No guarantee if it will work smooth.
sure. thanks for your patience.
@skilled: off the topic question…. interested in mythology eh??? Ur names are named as leviathan, perseus, Einherjar
Well the names are also ganymede ,mercury ,energon ,……
Interested in bit of astronomy too lolz 🙂
Hey skilled can you check the download mate… I downloaded the file twice… Cant seem to extract the .md5 file from the downloaded .tar.7z file… Anyone else having issues??
what error are you getting .Use 7Z archiver .Winrar is not that good for 7z .
a noobs question :
ext2 ,ext3 and ext4 for the second partition on sd card…using link2sd works.
i havent tried before but main sd card partition will it work with ext2? or should i let it be fat32 itself..
i got 8gb class 6 sd card 1gb is ext4 for link2sd and 6.75 gb in fat32 format… can i try with ext2 or ext4…thats m asking
sure you can try
Music wont auto detect mp3’s
videos wont auto detect
ans you will have to use root explorer for all navigation .
will play once..lol
off topic ques..
jus flashed cwm on polish 2.3.6 and i went to revovery..
its giving many mount error like recovery log mount error..
however they just pop up below on the screen.. otherwise recovery works fine..
so is that ok? i want to be cautious cuz dont wanna brick my phone again hehehhe.
i want to flash cyanogen mod so wil it work fine?
CWM doesnt support rfs .so it’s just useless on Arkas and Stock ROMs .
ext iterations of Perseus X are only supported by CWM
i am not goin to backup or do some change i jus want to flash cyanogen mod as update from sd card via cwm.
will that work? or it is also not supported?
if not than tell me the sequence of flashing.
thats supported .
You can check the older posts or the google group for details about flashing CWM .
is this rom support cwm??
Nope . Last time checked ext2/4 was not used in Perseus X .
can i use this rom even i have a stock rom 2.3.4 ..?
can this improve the performance of my phone thanks..
yeah can be used on 2.3.4 .
definitely noticeable increase in performance .
for installing this rom is need to format the sd?
No need to format sd . Do factory reset however .
everything is working smooth…..find it better than cyanogen
just videos are lagy on mx video player
having arkas 1.5 in my phone testing link2sd and mad2sd and work but dt doesnt work when i check via TE its always said ‘a2sd not found’ try to run from system/bin but still got same result…running out of idea”
Nb: i tried link2sd mad2sd and DT separately.
technically all three of them should work .check permissions of a2sd
oh yeah skilled
i just want to share my ported themes
it based on ice cream sandwich
i take the icon from galaxy 3 and galaxy gio ics themes
this theme for 2.3.6
maybe you can include it in one of your rom :p
but it still have some bug
i can’t explain that
because i only can speak english a little bit
here is the download link
i already make a update.zip for that 🙂
The framework is great !!! .
i think the “bug” is the Notifications banner .
lets see if I get time to fix it .
at the notification banner
i’m get confused and lazy to fix that 😀
Flashed this rom. lang is in polish so changed the language to eng(us).. lang changed to english but titanum backup is still in polish..
reboot should fix it.
how to fix lag of videos ??
and how do i install stock rom keyboard from your other custom rom to this rom??
overclock ?? Actually I can run 480p videos without any lag .MX player with SW Fast mode .
Install the keyboard from market .I had given the link earlier.
please help me . My version is 2.2 . I flash 2.3.4 or 2.3.6 by odin and my screen is to get dark.I never seen anything.what can ı do ?
Phone doesnt support GB sadly .Try going back to Froyo and then to GB
thank you skilledchaos. I back to froyo . am ı the 1.5 einherjar flash by odin on the 2.2 ?
No you need to have stock GB installed for the bootloader .You can use the stable 0.564 Leviathan (Only ROM other that the Ganymede 1/3 to cross the 1K mark ) on Froyo .
I don’t think its d case…..but just an idea….can one package flashing be d source of such a bug……if so…..can u prepare a doownload file with individual pda etc.. for stock gb atleast?????
well .Odin OPS dictates how afiles are flah. A tomato will be tohmato or tomahto
my phone doesn’t support GB too!
i’ve tried flashing stock GB, Ganymede3, and Einherjar but all failed. screen got dark and blurry. do you have any solution or suggestion for this problem? or patch maybe?
now i’m back using DarkEnergon… 😦
don’t know why, but some phone got this black blurry screen problem (mine not)
and still no solution about this
check the video about that GB screen problem at youtube
yup, i’ve seen that video on youtube too. which is only showing a problem without solution…
does flash player works??
about to test that one.
doesn’t seem like it. someone please prove me wrong.
Very strange .It works fine using this method .
ohhhh! didn’t paste it inside lib. just in com.adobe.flashplayer/
is there anything to get the battery icon in percentage format..
u suggest that icecream sandwich update “seven” posted above what say??
otherwise a great rom… works well and smooth and finally my link2sd reboot problem also solved..
no fcs so far…bit problem restoring apps with titanium backup..but that maybe just me…
thanks to u skilled
well tried cyanogen mod for 6 hours and my conclusion is that it isnt my cup of tea cuz of the bugs that are still present..
specially the call dissconnect error.
so i flashed this rom and its awesome.
no fcs no bugs.
however i have two ques..
1. why is availble internal memory so less by default?
i checked the apps but i guess they dont take so much space ie. cpu tuner, filexpert.
2. what is the default setting that i shud set in cpu tuner so that i get the same value of stock 2.3.6.?
1.)Deodexed ROMs take some space in /data
2.)600Mhz Ondemand governor deadline governor .
One question, Why it states Perseus X as boot loader animation and not Arkas animation? Though it is not required, but thought asking you once.
Anyways, thanks for the rom, you rock!!.
lol cos there is no Arkas boot animation .
this is my cpu setting
is it same as stock?
I/O is deadline for stock
Does TouchWiz still stay.. Does it still retain all features of touchwiz??
hey skilled, a ques, how to deodex ROM??
i mean how to convert .odex and .apk into 1 .apk
Use baksmali .
A wonderful effort guys 🙂 keep it up !
I was just wondering : Arabic letters are displayed but not connected, is there anything i can do to solve this problem ?
thanks guys for your support 🙂
