Sapir - September 26th

It took longer than I meant, and some of it was due to unfortunate merges, but the new release is here.

Nothing new, except the CM updates - which also means Calculator will now work.

Some of the users didn't like the transparent status bar. While I like it, I can relate - so, hopefully next build, I'll put a toggle option for that. I'm also working on tablet mode and individual DPI changer, but both are still some time coming.

I'd like to hear from you on new features you would like here in the comments section.

Download links, as always, on the right side.

Now, the full updated change log:
  • Added DPI Changer in Display settings
  • Transparent nav bar / status bar
  • Additional Battery styles in status bar, including circle
  • Brightness control in lock screen
  • Option to disable auto screen-lock after a phone call

  • T9 Dialer searches also in company and nickname

  1. Request wise, I'd love 8 lockscreen shortcuts vs the standard 5 offered by default.

    A fix for allowing default camera app to save to sd-ext would be lovely :-) I use Camera Zoom for photo's, so that is directable for photo's but video is reliant on internal card saving with default camera, as I am sure you already know :-)

    Keep up the ace work fella! :)

    1. Yes, I'll put it in the to-do list. I like that as well :)

      Which device are you using? (bug-wise)

    2. The ROM is currently available for Samsung Galaxy S III, but to 4 more devices as well.
      The download links are to the right, under the title Latest Versions"

    3. Sorry for the late reply, I use a galaxy s2, cheers for responding to my reply for hopefully reasonable room requests :)

  2. Hi,EREZ..M using your 20 Build n its working smooth but batery drains very fast in abt 4 hrs contious usage of surfing .Think lots of users having pblm wd less batery backup frm Jb rom ..m using JPZ modem .Radio is utilizng more batery,can i plz know how to fix it.Thnx for giving jb sapir build.

    1. I suggest trying the 26th - or waiting for the 28th.

  3. Agreed, I have had experience better battery performance with the 26th release, nice one :-)

  4. I'd been using your rom for a while and I liked the transparent status bar. I would like to request the Status Bar 90% or 100% Transparent. I tried Miui Rom but your Rom it's way faster and smoother. Looking for a workaround or a fix I'd found apex launcher to hide the status bar, it looks bigger the screen but isn't the same.
    Hope you can include it.

    Thanks for your great Work
