Some will say, this tutorial is the same as this (input &%/$% of your choice) did for Shpongle rom!!!
Well, like I wrote in tutorial for Shpongle rom: "It should work with Primou POmega...", but, unfortunately, no one seems to read or remember that.
So, YES, almost the same tutorial, but, as usual, for some, title is important


OK, that's what you can do with your hov, primou gsm. I did! With latest TWRP recovery. Link: http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/primou

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: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....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!

1. Download latest POmega rom, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2600510. Yeah, also gapps - choose one: http://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=5649 (or, my favourite, Slim gapps: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2265564.
And kernel: http://d-h.st/gEg. I personally use Ironman Kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2367804 It's up to you..., both working like a charm!
2, Factory reset/Nandroid backup or else... Copy all backups to PC or cloud!
3. Backup sd card to pc
4. Reboot into recovery
5. In recovery, wipe system and everything else in advanced wipe, everything, sdcard included!!!
6. In recovery, copy backup of sd card from pc to phone sd card (POmega, backups, gapps and everything else you want, of course). If you don't know how to mount sdcard in twrp, ignore this tutorial or learn first how to do that…
7. Flash kernel with: 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...
8. Boot into recovery
9. Flash latest POmega rom
10. Reboot system
11. Reboot recovery
12. Some say, that it's better to flash kernel AFTER flashing rom. Up to you, try and see, I didn't...
13. Reboot recovery
14. Flash gapps
15. Reboot system
16. Add whatever apk you need... and you're on your own...I restored all apps from backup that I did with Android Ultimate Toolbox Pro. Link already somewhere in this post...
17. Install one app with which you can uninstall or freeze system apps... Which app it will be, it's up to you, search around a bit... Then uninstall or freeze what you don't need. One by one and not important ones... You'll learn by mistakes...

Then install (I installed in that order, rebooting into recovery and wiping cache/dalvik between installs) :
- V6 SuperCharger: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=991276 Awsome!!! Thanks zeppelinrox!!! Read carefully!!!. Sorry if you brick your hov, your fault!
IMPORTANT: POmega rom has Fly-On Mod Tweaks included. So you have to uninstall them first, before installing V6 Supercharger. If you don't know how, it's better to skip installation of V6!
- Turbo boost: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2145133 Triple swap, recommended values… (Edit: use guideline in post #4 of Shpongle rom tutorial, 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: 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 FX (sound) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2191223 Yes, XHiFi is already in rom, but you can have both...
- The New Pure Audio: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2293589 YES, it's working GREAT with V4A If your hov protests, put V4A in compatibility mode...
- 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

Also XblastTools are great: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2294419. You can tweak, well, a lot...
However, GravitiBox (included in POmega) and XblastTools are almost (I said almost) identical, so you can choose just one (works for me, just one, but I will not tell which one).

I DID ALSO FOLLOWING (PLEASE, PLEASE, you're doing that on YOUR OWN):
While on POmega and HellBoy/Ironman kernel, you can (please in THAT order):
- S-OFF: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2558740
- Remove Red Text: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2164185
- Change CID: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=14
- Change Splash Screen: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=14
AGAIN, you're doing that on your own. Your hov may differ from mine a lot!!!

Now, if you know to read and if you follow the guidelines, you SHOULD NOT have any problems. If you do, you did something wrong, sorry for that, do everything again, correctly...

And go to POmega thread and hit "thanks" to Aiko0923...

You're right Sorry, I didn't check the link from the thread...
Here it is:
- for red text: https://app.box.com/s/8o4r6lkndpzl41v9c9gw
- s-off, Windows: https://app.box.com/s/9axh9f1jmxc3pjn8mj4f Linux: https://app.box.com/s/wllfllih0y3d8cp8bpn8 - of course, everything is also here: http://rumrunner.us/, but, just in case...
Unfortunately, hboot is stil not there for primou...
