JimdemDroid Tweak Package

Featured at XDA Portal!
Here is the package that became very popular in Greece and loved by many users. Increase your phone's speed, battery life, optimize the overall response and make your phone more beautifull with this little update. It is designed for CM7 roms (for mdpi phones). The JimdemDroid Tweak Package includes the best tweaks for you phone. With a simple installation through Clockworkmod recovery you can enjoy it's benefits.

Features:
  • Optimized response/scrolling
  • Faster boot/shutdown
  • More free ram (Thanks to Juwe ramscript)
  • Fast multitasking
  • Fast taskbar
  • Better audio quality in videos
  • Instant GPS lock (GR users)
  • BRAVIA Engine
  • XLOUD Sound Drivers
  • Faster screen rotation
  • Better battery life
  • Faster wake/sleep
  • Keyboard type Xperia Stock
  • Clock Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Dialer type Xperia stock

Requirements: (Every kernel both stock and custom is supported)
  1. A CM7 rom of your choice
  2. Clockworkmod Recovery (Included in most roms)

Files: (From 21.1 version and above, the tweak works with every CM7 rom)
The newest version implements also the optimizations of the previous.

DO NOT REMOVE BUILD.PROP
It contains the code for loading many aspects of the tweak!


Universal tweak (All cm7 roms+GingerDx)


Lite versions do not contain visual changes, custom themed apps, custom fonts and generally do not alter the appearence at all

Installation:
Through xRecovery or CWM Recovery, make a full backup. Then, transfer the zip to your sd card and through CWM Recovery, install it. It is not required to do full wipe. The first boot might be slower than normal.

Various instructions:

Use of Rescan Media Root:
This app disables android's feature to search for media after boot. Disabling this increases our boot speed. Open the app and select "disable media scanner". Close the app and you are ready.
Modules:
Modules for rom (dualtouch, undervolt etc) are included in the tweak so you just install your rom and then you install the tweak.

Screenshots:



Known bugs (Due to framework change) on full version of the tweak:
  • Clock in center not working
  • Kernel info doesn't appear in settings
  • Sense lockscreen appears as sliding tab
  • (Reboot Option) Reboot to CWM recovery not working

Known bugs in both full and lite versions:
  • DSP manager not working due to XLoud
  • PowerAmp 2.0+ FC
  • Wi-fi issue on MiniCM

Most of the above problems are resolved by using the lite version of the tweak that does not contain graphical changes

It should be ok and with custom kernel. Although you need to remove modules from the zip before installing. And i can't guarranty you that it will work perfectly. Some users reported that it was running fine

Have tried the Update 21.2 without full wipe.
Using GDX V21 with Alfs KernelSo far everything seem normal

Confirm working: Call, SMS, Wi-Fi, 3G (Data)

Performance:
1) Notice the screen more responsive.

Bug (??)
1) Center clock not working
2) Pattern lock screen seem different (Not as tidy/nice as original)
3) No Kernel info found in "About Phone"

Thanks for the great Tweak

Thank you for the feedback my friend! Sorry for the bugs but they are due to change of framework (xgin framework customized by me because it is very beautifull). If you can live with those bugs then it is ok Do you like the appearence?

Edit: Version 21.3 is up!
