Instructions
**MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE USING AN HBOOT THAT HAS AT LEAST 240MB ON THE SYSTEM PARTITION (STOCK HBOOT WORKS FINE)** (Unless you are using a Slim version)

Recommendations/Requirements:
- A 512mb - 1.5gb ext partition (ext4 recommended) on your sdcard. Use this guide, and this guide only to create the partition. Partitions made using other tools (CWM, Minitool Partition Wizard, etc.) will likely cause issues.
-A somewhat decently functioning brain
  1. Download ROM and GAPPS
  2. Boot into recovery and make a nandroid backup (optional but recommended)
  3. Full wipe
  4. Flash ROM
  5. Flash GAPPS
  6. Wipe cache and dalvik cache
  7. Reboot
  8. Activate a2sd by running the following commands in the provided terminal emulator app:
    Code:
    su
    a2sd install
    y
    n
    y
  9. Flash the Fixes & Add-On's that you would like (found in second post)

Downloads

Build 5: Mediafire
- Initial release

Build 7: Mediafire
- Added new system animations
- A couple under the hood changes
- CM updates

Build 8: Mediafire
- Performance tweaks (rom is a bit faster)
- Graphic changes
- Trackpad wake
- LowSoundFixer

Build 9: Mediafire
- Bionic optimizations
- Navigation Bar
- Custom heights for navigation bar (Settings > Chromium ROM Settings > Button Height)
- Pie Controls
- Graphic changes
- New font
- Some other stuff that I forgot about

Build 10: Mediafire // DevHost // AndroidFileHost
- Fixed '0dp navigation bar height not working' - Choosing that option will now turn the navbar off as intended, so it is no longer necessary to use Expanded Desktop as a workaround
- More bionic optimization. The ROM is now significantly smoother.

Build 11: Mediafire // DevHost
- Hardware acceleration
- Camera improvements
- Graphic changes
- Build 10 hotfixes merged

Build 11 Slim: Mediafire
- Fully compatible with Alpharev's Data++ hboot
- System size is 165mb

GAPPS

Useful Repos

https://github.com/WoH
https://github.com/Evervolv
https://github.com/kshark27/UltraExplorer

Thanks to
-Cyanogenmod for rom source
-Evervolv for kernel and vendor tree
-csytracy for releasing the source to his cm build
-WoH for the device tree and a few other repos (bionic)
-parkedraccoon for helping me make the rom buttery smooth

Ports
Nexus One - tommypacker

Other Info
All in all, this ROM is Cyanogenmod 10.1 with a few graphic changes. It also includes various extra features that have been cherry picked from multiple sources. In addition this ROM is compiled without the use of cchache and only full clean builds are released. This means that it will take longer for me to compile, however it will result in a reduced chance of bugs and maybe even an increase in performance.

Fixes & Add-On'sMore Stuff & FAQ

How do I disable Navigation Bar?
Settings > Chromium ROM settings > Button Height > 0dp (off)

Im getting graphical issues & tearing throughout some apps in build 10. How do I fix this?
First go to Settings > About phone > Tap on Build number 7 times. That will enable the Developer options menu. Go into it and enable "Disable HW overlays".
This should solve all of these issues, but keep in mind that this option does not stick after a reboot. Therefore you will need to re-enable it upon each boot.
**There is now a fix for this - Download and flash it from the Fixes & Add-On's section above**

Recommended Settings for Performance:
First go to Settings > About phone > Tap on Build number 7 times. That will enable the Performance menu. Then go into it and choose these:

Processor:
CPU Governor - Performance
Min CPU Freq. - 460MHz
Max CPU Freq - 1113MHz

I/O scheduler:
I/O scheduler - CFQ

Memory management:
zRam - 26%
Allow purging of assets - Enabled
KSM - Enabled

Also install Nova launcher, as Trebuchet (the stock launcher) seems to be a bit laggy.

Here are some screenshots of the battery life im getting after a day of heavy usage:
Almost 4 hours of screen on time...Keep in mind that i still have another 20% battery left in the screenshots.

I could try, but I don't think I can make it that small. I've already removed a lot from.it.
Why not just use a2sd?...it works fine
