Sapir - October 2nd Release

What is going on in here?
I've got the following things lined up:

  • Remove the reboot requirement for Navigation Bar enable / disable - this helps with some games and has been requested a lot
  • Integrate Tablet Mode - Currently causes a lot of merge issues
  • Individual DPI - Still in design
  • Transparency Toggle for Status Bar - Looking for a solution
While I'm working on this things, however, there are a lot of changes coming in from CM, and I don't want you guys to miss out on them, which is why the list above takes some time to implement.
When things get a bit more stable on the CM front, though, the proprietary Sapir features (as well as merges) will pick up pace as well.

So, for now, with the links on the right side as usual, here is the updated changelog:
  • Sapir: Added DPI Changer in Display settings

  • Delay auto screen-off when answering call

  • Option to keep the proximity sensor on during calls using a headset
  • *** (Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000) * Using old partition structure, so data partition is large enough for user applications *

  1. New release doesn't boot! I also tried a clean installation with full data wipe but there is no boot animation and it still doesn't boot. It must be the build!

    1. As this is a multi device ROM, I need to know which device you're using. :-)

  2. please...cause my dataplan is only 1gb per month

  3. Works fine Erez thank you very much for this nice work.
    Where to find the table mode, i can` t see them. THX

    Best regards, chris

    1. Still being worked on. Sorry if it wasn't clear. :-)

  4. As I still can't report bug or idea on xda, there is some
    1 - I can't connect my computer to my Gtab shared wifi if I secure the wifi with a password, but there is no problem with an open wifi. I never had a problem with CM9 (tested with windows and Linux mint).
    2 - do you know anything about the EAP-SIM protocol, my provider use the simcard id to allow us to connect to a collaborative free wifi, if this is an easy thing to add to your rom or to the CMbase, It will be great appreciated by a lot of french users I guess.

    Thanks again for your great job

  5. Hi, the new release cant't boot.
    Samsun Galaxy s2 is my smartphone.
    after installing the rom and reboot I get a black screen and the phone will not start.
    Damn ..... I had to install another rom to resolve. :-((((

    1. It's a kernel issue, I'm sorry. I'll try to sort it out today - but for now, please put another kernel.

      To the others - this is only a problem with the Galaxy S II release.

  6. I had no boot, but that was sorted by applying my usual siyah kernel, so instal 4.1.5 and I bet you will be fine and pleased with the results.

    Erez, again, brilliant rom, I checked out the state of play on RR, Rootbox & Super Nexus today, your rom is still by far the best Jelly Bean Release!

    1. Thank you. I'll work on the kernel issue. By the way, Siyah will probably be my regular choice for Sapir.

  7. The Samsung Galaxy S II is back in the game. Sorry about that.

    1. Grabbing rom now, will see if default kernel has boot issue prior to putting siyah back on :)

  8. new rom boots with default kernel, but on reboot it soft locks. Siyah does not sort it out either.

    I'll hop back to 2012102 for the moment, good luck resolving!

  9. ah, reading through dorimanxs notes on his kernel, I see latest builds of JB sources may have black boot issues, maybe that's my issue with the 04102012 release!

  10. Hi Erez,
    Does your ROM have fast charge feature? In case it doesn't, can you please consider adding it in the future?

    Thanks for this great ROM and your hard work
