[ROM][15-08-2012] ~×~ EliteMod & Kernel ICS ~×~ [sd-ext/swap/dataswap]
EliteMod ICS 120728 + EliteKernel ICS 120906
Turbo just got a new meaning.
This mod is a custom ROM based on AOKP ICS ROM and modified CM9 Kernel.
The primary aim is to dramatically increase device speed while also maximizing battery life. Secondary aim is to provide a platform with seamless app2sd integration. The bonus is getting rid of some annoying post-flash steps and settings.
To achieve this required highly experimental steps outside of the scope of Android's security system and direct intervention in userspace.
Be aware that I made this mod primarily for myself, I went to extremes to squeeze the last bit of performance out of my device. Expect no flashy stuff, just raw power and great base for your customization. I guarantee no support whatsoever and any modifications you make to your device are solely your responsibility. It's a good idea to always nandroid backup first!
Warnings - must read:
1) Do a nandroid backup
, this ROM is not for everyone.
2) Full /data /cache /sd-ext wipe is mandatory
before moving to EliteMod from any other ROM, even from AOKP! Not kidding!
3) This ROM relies heavily on the bundled EliteKernel. Flashing any other kernel unless I explicitly put a link in download area is probably a bad idea.
4) Flashing gApps or any performance-boosting packages is not recommended. Latest gApps are already included and tweak scripts may in some extreme cases break sd-ext support.
5) The ROM requires a manual reboot after account setup
, you will see REBOOT REQUIRED
on screen. Tap it and reboot the device as usual to apply additional tweaks. Any settings done before this reboot may be lost.
6) If you want to do a "Factory Reset" of this ROM, wiping /data /cache /sd-ext wipe is not enough. You must re-flash the zip to really start clean.
The usual: Do not use TitaniumBackup to restore System components unless you know what you're doing. Restoring Apex user data will forfeit fine-tuned launcher settings. Opera performance tweaks get applied after you first run it and then reboot, so it may not handle so well on first run.
