Q: What is the SVN checkout URL?
In the spirit of open source, the Axis SDS team is making everything in this ROM free to use. If you see something you like, you may take it and use it in your own private or public ROMs. All that we ask is that you keep the credits the way they are in the files you use and credit the team in your thread. Aside from that, you have the creative liberty to do whatever you want to the files. You may rename them, change the icons, or whatever else you please. Just please don't alter the credits.
Q: Does ART work?
No. Not at the moment.
Q: When is the next release coming?
There are going to be no announcements of scheduled release dates for this ROM.
Q: Are there going to be nightlies?
There will be updates via SVN, but I cannot guarantee new changes will be made every day.
Q: Any plans to make an Odexed version?
You can choose to odex the ROM via AxisTweaks. I will not guarantee that the odexing process will succeed however.
Q: I'm thinking of making a snide comment.
Don't. If you have an issue with something solve it via PM. Snide comments do not include "dumb questions." I welcome everyone to ask any questions they have, but please try not to post a duplicate question. I may snap if I see it over and over on every page. However, I do not know everything so if I ignore your question, don't take it personal. I just either don't know the answer or am too busy to answer. This is a community and we're all here to learn so help each other out.
Q: My benchmark scores are lower than when I used _________.
That's nice, but it doesn't mean much. As long as the speed of the phone is to your satisfaction everything is working as it should. Benchmark scores are used to show off if anything. Now you may be asking, "Why don't benchmark scores mean anything?" Well it's because there are so many factors that can alter a benchmark score that it makes them unreliable as a performance indicator.
Q: What benchmark app do you recommend?
If I had to choose, Vellamo Mobile Benchmark
Q: Why are there so many images in this thread?
I got bored on Photoshop.
Q: How can I help with this ROM?
Rating the thread 5 stars helps a lot. I don't really need testers, but would prefer to have someone in addition to myself try to port some mods over to the ROM. For example, if someone in the thread wanted a launcher with different modifications, I wouldn't really have the time do it it all by myself. People who contribute apps, themes, etc will have their mod listed under "Downloads" and will have their name in the credits.
Q: I like the Performance governor because it makes my phone fast, but I heard it's bad to use it all the time. Should I choose a different one?
Most people think that the performance governor is a terrible choice to use because it constantly keeps the phone clocked to the highest frequency and quickly heats up the phone, which proves to be true to an extent. What they don't realize is that the performance governor allows the phone to quickly complete running tasks and reach an idle state. This is good news for your battery because it will sleep faster. Of course, you wouldn't want your phone to be sleeping at 1.5GHz so to counter this, create a "screen off" profile using SetCPU
or any other performance tuning app and set it to Min: 380MHz / Max: 480MHz. Despite this setup, your phone may still run hot while the screen is on due to it running at the highest frequency which is not a good thing. This brings me to another topic. Is it good to underclock or set the minimum CPU frequency to the lowest possible value? Not always, no. If you set the frequency to the lowest possible value the phone will take longer to finish a task which will most likely lead to bad battery drain. In the end, there is no single best setup since everyone will tell you different things, but I personally use Ondemand at the stock frequencies with no profiles. If the Smartassv2 governor is available, I use that instead of Ondemand.
