I like tutorials on XDA !!!
Really.
If you didn't read at least 10 (ten) of them, you're NOOB!

OK, that's what I did with my hov, primou gsm. With TWRP 2.6.3 recovery. Link: http://techerrata.com/file/twrp2/pri...3.0-primou.img

First of all, you are already rooted!!! If not, follow guidelines on XDA, like: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1598964 and http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1713257 or use WinDroid HTC One V Toolkit: [url]http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2471243

Second, NO GUARANTEE at all that your hov is like mine!!! So, if you do anything, here's a touch: I'm not responsible for burning, bricking, destroying, misplacing, loosing, exploding, leaking poison or whatever possible and impossible YOUR hov will do! But, if it works, you'll have F1 hov!!!

Third, I assume that you know WHY are you installing 1ceb0x shpongle rom to your hov!

Some said, that this guide works also with other custom roms, regarding procedure... Try and see...It should work with Primou POmega Beta4 v2.3.1 - One V - Aosp 4.2.2: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2600510 as it's based on Shpongle rom. BIG BIG THANKS Aiko0923!!!

1. Download latest shpongle rom, (or 20130521 version without Halo): http://www.mediafire.com/download/m5...u_20130521.zip THANKS Seraz007) and kernel to pc: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2230656 Yeah, also gapps, if you don't have them already. I personally use Ironman Kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2367804 It's up to you...
2, Factory reset
3. Backup sd card to pc
4. Wipe sd card
5. Reboot into recovery
6. In recovery, wipe system and everything else in advanced wipe, everything!!!
7. In recovery, copy backup of sd card from pc to phone sd card (shpongle, gapps and everything else you want included, of course). If you don't know how to mount sd in twrp, ignore everything before and after…
8. Flash kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1747168. Program is discontinued, but working like a charm!!! THANKS shubhamchamaria Now, of course, you can use also WinDroid HTC One V Toolkit: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2471243 THANKS WindyCityRockr or Android Ultimate Toolbox Pro: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886562 THANKS despotovski01. It's up to you which tool U use, not just for kernel install, also for recovery, apks...
9. Boot into recovery
10. Flash latest shpongle rom (or 20130521, without Halo) Again, up to you...
11. Reboot system
12. Reboot recovery
13. Flash gapps
14. Reboot system
15. Add whatever apk you need... and you're on your own...

Then I installed (if you don't like that apps, forget):
- V6 SuperCharger: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=991276 Awsome!!! Thanks zeppelinrox It's not for noobs. Read carefully!!!. Sorry if you brick your hov, your fault!
- Turbo boost: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2145133 Triple swap, recommended values… (Edit: use guideline in post #4, if you experience any trouble. BIG THANKS to nereis) also, some users suggest to use just 50 MB in /cache. I still have 75 and everything working well, but... SOME SUGGEST that SwapItOn is better idea: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2359182 - up to you!
- CrossBreeder: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2113150, don't touch a thing, unless you know why…
- Viper4Android (sound) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2191223
- One Power Guard (battery) – still the best, forget other battery apps… http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1947559 - - NOW EVEN BETTER: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=47760222 Some users said that there are better battery apps out there... Please, use them, I just like that, because it's working for me...

For 3rd party camera, install what you like, here's the thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2314084

Yeah, like many said, I forgot to mention Greenify: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...sfeng.greenify Well, 'cause I believe that you all use it anyway...

I found also that GravityBox: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2316070 is working like a charm.
Also XblastTools are great: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2294419.
You can tweak, well, a lot... However, GravitiBox and XblastTools are almost (I said almost) identical, so choose one (works for me, but I will not tell which one1).

I DID ALSO FOLLOWING (PLEASE, PLEASE, you're doing that on YOUR OWN):
While on Shpongle and Ironman kernel, I did:
- S-OFF: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2558740 (no problems at all, I have on PC Win 7 Ultimate, x64)
- Remove Red Text: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2164185 (like a charm...)
- Change CID: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...26&postcount=4 (super CID now...)
- Change Splash Screen: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=14 (perfect...)
AGAIN, you're doing that on your own. Your hov may differ from mine a lot!!!

Oh, and, please thank 1ceb0x for everything!!!!! Without him, we would be blind…

But now we have our new hero: Aiko0923: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2600510

just found out that when you flash turbo boost, it disables the swap that comes with Shpongle ROM flash.

Fix the permissions of 01swap in init.d (chmod 775) and you would get a lot more swap space. Might as well use it since that internal SD isn't being mounted anyway.

First, THANK YOU!!!
Second, well, I read all posts in Turbo Boost, and, if I'm not completely wrong, idea of Turbo Boost is, to disable system swap and replace it with it's own... So, of course, also Shpongle's swap is disabled...
Third, I made change you suggested, everything is working excellent, I (unfortunately) can not see any difference...
Fourth, I updated OP with your tip/trick...

First, I think we need to assess the pros/cons of swap, and this would highly depend on your usage pattern.

I have another similar spec'd low RAM device that has is running on stripped down barebones (Greenify most stuff, modded autostart receivers..etc) and its working well without any zram/swap. For the HOV I decided the internal nand can take some abuse and still outlast the irreplaceable battery, so making use of unused internal space since we cannot change the partition layouts makes sense.

Pros:
1. More RAM (technically swapped out stuff isn't in the RAM) but we have increased multi-tasking capability

Cons:
1. Slow I/O reading/writing to the NAND as opposed to fast RAM
2. Risk the NAND dies and your phone goes dead
3. More CPU overhead to organize all the I/O, and even more if you use compression like KSM (I think this is still a worthwhile compromise to reduce the amount of data written)

Using swap makes the phone slower in general, but you can also do much more with it. If you like lots of stuff open in the background, browse web pages while listening to music, switch between apps to copy stuff back and forth, this is a nice compromise.

If you are going to use swap, I would say you might as well use lots of it! That is even if you don't see an improvement.
You are spreading out the writing stress across a larger number of cells, get more multi-tasking capability for the phone and see low memory killer work much less often.
