Default [ION] [ADDON] SMOOTH ION for Stock ION Roms (update 09/11/2012)


Presenting Smooth ION the smoothest experience ever on Xperia ION. (you have the right to disagree)

What "Smooth ION" is not?

  • It is not a ROM.
  • It cannot be flashed independently. (Requires ION Stock ICS Rom)
What is "Smooth ION"?
  • Collection of apps.
  • Build prop tweaks.
  • Init.d tweaks.
What does "Smooth ION" contain/do?

(V1)
  • Xperia GX Home Launcher. (credit serajr) (not in At&t version)
  • Jellybean Status bar with Sense 4 recent Apps. (credit ou! & DdcCabuslay)
  • JB Adreno_Drivers_V3
  • Latest Sony Xperia V Walkman. (credit Rizal Lovins Sundanesse)
  • Google Now v4. (credit ReekoTubbs)
  • Add Jellybean Keyboard (not in At&t version) and Hackers Keyboard (my personal favorite ).
  • Adds init.d support if not there already.
  • Adds init.d tweak scripts.
  • Adds tons of build.prop tweaks.
  • Delete unnecessary apps.
(V2)
  • No Apps will be installed.
  • No Apps will be deleted.
  • Tweaked the Init.d scripts.
  • Added Supercharger tweaks.
  • Works on MIUI and CM9 too.
(V2a)
  • Forgot to add supercharger tweaks as mentioned in change log for V2. added them now.
  • Contains just the tweak. Just flash it on V2.

Before Flashing
  • Install CWM Recovery.
  • Deodex your Rom.
  • Install another home launcher, just in case if the GX Home gives fc's. (only for V1)
How to Flash
  • Download the zip and copy it to the SD card.
  • Boot your phone into Cwm recovery.
  • Flash the zip.
  • The initial boot may take time as the Cache and Dalvik cache are cleared.
Download
  • SmoothION v2.zip - 37MB - 9/11/2012 (md5sum : 2b2f22d0d1e88ab834e4e687813b52d8 )
  • SmoothION_v2a.zip - 145 KB - 27/11/2012 (md5sum : 633bc1596b356f821a9795723ef17798)

Yep! That's why I always have a second launcher. Just in case. Some reason the other GX launcher wouldn't work on the 28at but would on the 28i. Idk why

Give me some time. I am flashing at firmware right now. Let you know the solution.

On a second thought ... have you deodexed the rom?
