    STOP USE [ROM] [Coby MID1042] ▶Alien Droid◀ (Advanced GUI customization) [11.30.12]

    Hey guys! I origionaly made this ROM for The Kindle Fire and I decided to port it over to the Coby MID1042. This ROM is based off stock firmware but it has many GUI additions.Lets get into it!!!

    DOWNLOAD>>>>
    DO NOT DOWNLOAD UNLESS YOU ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE WIFI PROBLEM (I AM WARNING YOU)
    CURRENT BUILD:
    V 2.0 11.30.12 download here

    OLD BUILDS:
    V 1.0 11.18.12 download here

    STOCK ROM FIRMWARE:
    download here

    DESCRIPTION>>>>
    This ROM is made for people who love customization, It has an advanced theme chooser, battery icon changer, WiFi icon changer, and a soft key style picker. All these options will be in the app I developed called "GUI Settings". More GUI settings are to come in later builds. In addition to all that it has lots of other tweaks including add blocking.

    FEATURES>>>>
    These are just some of the features of this ROM:
    *alien shop: download free themes and mods and apply them directly from the app
    *custom theme switcher app made from scratch by me (app is called GUI Settings)
    *battery icon changer
    *soft key changer
    *WiFi icon changer
    *custom boot animation (made by hyperrunner)
    *gapps are preinstalled
    *custom default wallpaper
    *add blocking
    *root file manager
    *some bloat removed
    *added zip and zipalign binary (used by my app)
    *added updated wget binary
    *added cp binary because for some wered reason it did not come with it
    *disguised as Galaxy Nexus for more apps to choose from app store
    *rooted

    HOW TO INSTALL>>>>

    You will need CWM recovery. If you do not have CWM recovery then follow this guide and make a backup!
    (1)download ROM form computer of directly from tablet and transfer to built in sdcard
    (2).reboot into recovery by typing "reboot-recovery" from terminal emulator/adb shell or by holding down the silver button and power button
    (3).go into "install zip from sdcard">"choose zip from sdcard">then select the ROM to install. (The install will take a long time)
    (4).once it is done then WIPE data and cache then reboot and it should take about 30 sec to a min to boot into ROM.

    DISCLAIMER & BUGS>>>>
    WIFI PROBLEMS...CAUSES ALL ROMS TO HAVE WIFI PROBLEMS I am not responsible for a bricked device but I will surely help If something goes wrong. The only bug that I have noticed is that after installing a theme, sometimes the screen acts abnormally by rotating randomly until you reboot.

    THANKS>>>>

    powerpoint45 thanks so much for this ROM! Looks like you are currently the only game in town with a custom ROM for the mid1042! One suggestion, you might want to add a note to the OP warning people that the CWM flash will take a bit... it took so long I got worried! But all is well with patience and the custom boot ani is awesome!!!! I've been using it all night and it seems to be working great. VERY smooth when swiping between screens, tons of customization options. I am having WiFi issues however. It is very intermittent and for a while it wouldn't let me connect to my wifi at all. Also, no Google Maps? and it appears I cannot even download from the android market...any thoughts on that?

    Whats the "proper root"? Also in an update I will add Google maps and voice search. If you would like I could upload Google Maps for you. I will look into changing the WiFi scan interval but if you have not noticed, WiFi is sometimes hard to reconnect to directly after applying a theme/mod.

    Hmm that is weird.Well I might have found out the WIFI. Problem but also for now you can click on alien shop app then click "turn wifi on" to boost connection. In the next update I should have it fixed.I will probably have an update by next Sunday. Here is Google maps apk http://db.tt/yS6GehO0
