They do shady stuff like this all the time. A friend's husband had his account canceled because his phone would pocket dial and they said the short calls were consistent with those of a drug dealer.

Battery power and stability are what I look for most in a ROM. You guys got any suggestions?
Wow. I'm getting close to an hour screen time for 10% battery. With SHOstock3 2.1 and aj's kernel. I switched to aj's kernel because ss2.1 was so bad on battery compared to 1.8 and earlier. Try switching kernels.

Yes razen_kain the kernel is what affects battery, and performance.

You need the PhilZ CWM first if you don't already have it.

Put it on your sd card, boot into CWM, wipe cache and dalvik cache, flash kernel, reboot recovery, go to kernel specific options and reset ExTweaks profiles. Reboot.

The siyah kernel has evolved into AJK. Search the threads for AJK i777. The current version is 1.3 at the moment. They install easily in recovery just like you flash a rom. Just make sure that you already have Philz custom recovery, otherwise the ajk kernel won't work. Also read the installation instructions carefully. You have to clear cache and dalvik, flash the kernel, reboot recovery, then reset stweaks.

-Download Odin and unzip wherever you prefer on your computer.
-Download the Root zip, and place on the root of your Ext.SD.
-Download CWM V6.0.2.7 Odin flash, and install it using Odin with the provided instructions.
-Boot into CWM make a backup.
-Flash the root zip in CWM.

but wanna make sure i do everything rite. like for expample, it saids place the root zip on ext SD card, but do i take the sd card out my phone and place it into the sd slot, or do i do it via cable?

and it says boot into cwm and make a backup, but how do you make a backup?

then it says flash the root zip in cwm
WHAT?

Are you just spamming this thread? Please don't post off the wall opinions here that just confuse others.

As you can see at the top of this post we have been done down this road before. Please do not post crazy things here. We have tried to help you before, why do this again? All answers can be found in this thread. If you're not willing to put any effort in to reading, I'm not willing to help!

Traffic pumping? REALLY?

I haven't switched my kernel just yet thinking about giving that AJ 1 a shot just to help some more with battery life looks like mr cook is having good luck with it but I use a few apps to help with battery also CPU sleeper kills 1 of the cpu cores when the screen is off and boosted my battery life alot with just that android assistant I use for alot of things but it has a decent task killer in it also that I use to get rid of running apps without me having to worry about it and I dont know if you mess with it in the dark much but I do and its bright on the eyes even all the way down so night mode allows you to take the brightness down even further which also helps did find a problem with that night mode app though if you try to install an app you cant click the install button while its running for some reason but other than that its good.
