About script for control "/system/vendor": (Very big tnx to igogold)
Partition appslog (/system/vendor on MT15) mounted to "/v_mtd".
If "/v_mtd" small 100mb, then his automounted to /data/idd (Neo V). (On CM9 not mounted)
If "/v_mtd" large 100mb, then check:
1) Having any sub-directory on "/system/vendor" directory.
2) Having file "/system/etc/dalvik-move"
If some check true, script think this ROM modded: removed sub-directory ("app", "etc", "firmware", "lib", "pittpatt") on "/v_mtd" and mounted dalvik-cache to this parted. (This give more memory on "/data" partition).
If this check false, script mounted /system/vendor. (For correct working on stock ROM, on CM9 version not mounted)

Yeah!! It's officially released!!

@wielku

zram, compressed memory. Better multitasking.

cleancache, automatically remove outdated dalvik cache. Clear more space in data partition.

Both need to be activate manually..

Thumbs up
thanks nightelf, so far your kernel works well with
JJ_hybrid_ROMv3-Neo,

but the Overclocking part with Set Xperia seems freeze my neo,

i think it was just because i changed the kernel with Set Xperia working with an old kernel by others

besides this, everything goes well so far
