How To Install RandomROM:

This is a CWM compatible zip installer. I, personally, would recommend updating to A clean installation is always recommended after wiping /data, /cache, and /dalvik-cache. However, this rom should safely flash over any previous RandomROM version you may have, preserving data and settings, and hopefully any other EC05 rom(I haven’t tested them all :P ).

After RandomROM is Installed:

  • Open Terminal Emulator and enter the following:

This will freeze Updates, SNS, and DRM the same way Titanium Backup would. Substituting “superdefrost” for “superfreeze” will thaw these services out instead.

  • Heavily recommended is to disable data syncing once you’ve imported your contacts and to reduce screen brightness to the lowest comfortable level, disabling auto brightness.
  • Advanced Task Killer has been included and pre-configured. Simply place a widget on one of your homescreens, and click it to quickly and safely close all erroneous apps/services. Auto-kill is disabled and an ignore list is included.
  • Ad-free is included, but may need to be run to check for updates.

The following can be downloaded and flashed through CWM:
