Sapir - September 22nd

The build for the 22nd is finally here. There are warnings, so please read this post.

The main non-CM addition to the build is the transparent nav bar / status bar and I'll detail the full log after the two warnings.

First, for all builds, there seem to be an issue with CM merges that cause a problem with SuperUser. However, there's a very simple workaround for that. Simply download SuperSU, open it and let it replace the su binary.

The second warning is specific to the Galaxy Tab Build:
I won't repeat everything I already said - I kept the old partition layout, others didn't, I told you so, yada yada yada. ;)
The Galaxy Tab build will WIPE your data if you come from a Sapir build earlier than this one. It's not an arbitrary decision, this is done to maintain compatibility with CM10, when they return to this layout too.

But, worry not. Please follow the following procedure before installing:
  1. Perform nand backup from the recovery
  2. Install Sapir
  3. Install gapps
  4. Reboot
  5. Reboot to recovery
  6. Advance restore only data

I just tried it twice and it's working - you lose nothing at all.

Oh, and I've started releasing Sapir for the d2att (a.k.a. SGH-I747, a.k.a. AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III).

  1. Thank you for your great ROM and also recovery data technic. I think build 22th is faster than ever. No problem so far.

  2. Can i set cutsom APPs shortcuts in lockcreen like the camera ?

    1. Of course.
      Open Settings -> Lock screen -> Slider shortcuts

  3. First of all, I would like to thank Erez for his awesome work! This Sapir Rom is impressive!
    I flashed build 22th, and My Tab doesn't recognize the sim. I restore the backup (sapir 13th) and it's the same thing. How is it possible?
