I'm new to xda-developers but not completely new to android. I have also created my own ROM, which is pretty amazing trust me, but apparently I am not allowed to share it with others unless I get quite a lot of thanks and stuff so if this helps you please press the thank button.
OK, here we go:
=> (CM7.2 vo-1) =>http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...+2+rc1+by+vo-1
the kernel on this ROM is perfect so you don't need to change the kernel.
=> (Adrenaline™ Engine) =>http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...enaline+engine
this script will do, you don't need to fill your phone with scripts and stuff ok
=> CM7.2 (cyanogenmod 7.2) is obviously not in need of any app or script to control the CPU, to do so simply go to settings>cyanogenmod settings>performance>cpu and there you could do whatever you want. also cynogenmod is apparently asked by google to not include their apps in the rom so you will have to flash them your self to do so simply click on this link to download them >>>I'm a link
<<< and then flash the zip through clockwork mod ...
Also you may decrease the force closes by making a swap partition on your sd since you have a 16gb one. this also helps to smooth out some games and you will be able to do more multi tasking. to do this reboot into clockwork mod... (note if you partition your sd you will loose all data so copy all the things you have there to your pc and another thing partitioning your sd could decrease the sd lifetime) then choose advance next choose partition sd card now it will ask you to set the size choose 256mb and 256mb again thats more than enough for me but its always up to you mate.
once you have done all that and everything is up and running download root explorer or any app that allows you to access root directory. since cyanogenmod comes with this ****ing ADWlauncher (no offence to the devs) you defiantly gonna have to change it. this holo launcher thingy is the best home launcher ever so here is the link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1636478
download the latest stable version. now use your root file manager to move the apk file to this location /system/app then change the permissions to rw-r--r-- ok? now delete Adwlauncher.apk and adwlauncher.odex go it ? note!! install another launcher like launcher pro before you do just in case anything goes wrong. reboot now. cool.
there are many things you could do mate but I don't even know if you will use or read all of that so this is it for now if you run into any problem or want more stuff and tweaks let me know ill be more than happy to help
and good luck
