Ladies and Gentlemen….CYANOGENMOD 12.1 FOR THL 5000T TESLA!!!!
BUGS (NOT REALLY):
- Offline charging logo isn't showed correctly, a bit bugged, but it charge normally
- No USB Mass Storage, only MTP/PTP (Not a pain, it prevents SDCard Write Failures)
- If you found another, email me at RacerOttavio97@gmail.com, I'll fix it!
TUTORIAL (FOLLOW IT!):
- Enter TWRP Recovery (For installation and download, here on NeedRom http://www.needrom.com/download/twrp-touch-recovery-2-8-4-0-rev-1/
- DO A FULL BACKUP, PLEASE!
- Wipe Data and Cache
- Install CM12_THL5000T.zip
- After installation, if you prefer SD Card as Internal Storage, and your real Internal Storage as External (really useful if you have a 8/16/32/64GB SDCard and you want to play big games), install my personal SwapSDCard.zip, otherwise go to step 6.
- Then, Reboot your System
- WARNING: On first boot, follow the setup wizard and when you are on Launcher Home, go to Settings, About Phone, Click 5 or 6 times on Build Number, then go back and go to Developer Option and Enable the third option, Advanced Reboot. Then, hold Power Button, Choose Reboot and then Reboot Recovery. THIS STEP IS NEEDED, BECAUSE OF 2 MAIN REASON: 1) ON FIRST BOOT, CONNECTION DATA DOESN'T WORK AND 2) GAPPS AND ALL OTHER ZIPS NEED TO BE INSTALLED AFTER FIRST SETUP!
- While you're on recovery, Install GApps (Google Apps, like Play Store, etc…), Dolby Atmos (for a perfect Audio experience) and KingUser_Root (For Root, OBVIOUSLY)
- Reboot System
- ENJOY CM12!
THE DEVICE IS SPOOFED TO Galaxy S4 (i9500) FOR PLAY STORE COMPATIBILITY! SO, CyanoGenMod DETECT OUR PHONE AS S4 AND GIVE US UPDATES OF NIGHTLY! DON'T UPDATE WITH THOSE NIGHTLY, THEY'RE FOR S4, NOT FOR THL 5000T. UNFORTUNATELY OUR PHONE CAN0T GET UPDATES, AS IT ISN'T OFFICIALLY SUPPORTED!
On the first day of usage, I noticed a HUGE battery drain. Really strange, as our THL 5000T has 5000mAh Battery!! So I have investigated about that, and I noticed that the default CPU governor for CM is powersave. Well….it isn't a real powersave, because this CPU governor set all 8 CPUs Frequency on lowest possible, but it keep all 8 online! So you have 8 Cores Working at minimum, but all online.
The correct CPU governor for MT6592(m) is hotplug. It works in a better way: it "power on" cores only if the phone need them! So, if you play GTA: San Andreas, the Governor power on 4, 5 or 6 Cores, but if you stay on HomeScreen swiping like a moron, the Governor "shutdown" all Cores but one, and keeps that one at minimum frequency!
Shortly, Hard Work for the Phone => Hard Work for Cores. Relax for the Phone => Relax for Cores (and Battery)
To set CPU governor, there are plenty of apps on Play Store, like Kernel Adiutor(I used it), CPU No-Frills…..
REMEMBER: After set CPU Governor, let the battery drain until you reach 15, 20%. Then charge until full. You'll see than on second day, at midnight, there will be 60/70% of charge!
