Hello Guys !

  • Using my latest Custom Kernel Version 1.3
    (Check the kernel thread , for changelogs), among other things: Overclock Ready + Several IO Schedulers and CPU Governors to choose from.
  • Featuring my Custom GFX / eGL Patch (Bye bye , graphical issues, and Lag that plagues all JellyBean Roms)

CyanogenMOD 10.1 Backported apps :

  • cLock; Beutiful Clock and weather Widget

Other features / Mods:
  • Aroma Installer (Supports Both Partitions Layouts, Stock and Extended)
  • Battery percentage (in steps of 1%) display Mod, and with new battery icons
  • Take Screenshot: Pressing POWER+VOL DOWN Buttons
  • Volume Rocker WAKE: Wake your device with the VOL Keys (doesn't work on DeepSleep)
  • Latest Stericson BusyBox

  • Settings and Recent Apps shortcuts on Status Bar
  • Multi Language (English as Default)
  • Minimal GAPPS from JB 4.2.2 included, rest of the apps can be downloaded from the Play.
  • And other things ...

NOTE: The BBoostManger app will "FC" ; that's NOT an BUG, i did that on purpose...
What you'll be using it's that app WIDGET to Overclock / Back to stock clock.

Thanks (i really don't have much time to test Roms ...)
The Source development is taking all my free time right now ...

WOW 940+ Downloads in less then 24hours, and only you replied here.
Feedback is really important in tracking bugs (?).

Luckly my FB Group is still very active, one bug they found was the Camera Panorama Mode, shows an Black Screen... will add the little patch in some minutes.



regards



EDIT: Camera Panorama Patch added
Check the Downloads Section

IF you have the single-SIM variant, it's normal that you get that message on the 2ND SIM.
If you own an Dual-SIM, then you did something wrong... Please Make an FULL WIPES on Recovery an install again.
If it persists, there's several tuts here on XDA, on how to recover your IMEI on MTK Based Devices.

hi

Some users said that on JB 4.1.x Roms, the Notifications from the facebook app (browser works ok) was giving random reboots and frozing the phone.

Well here's an new kernel for STOCK Based 4.1.x Roms Only (doesn't work on MIUI/Lewa) but its just an matter of repacking the kernel with MIUI/LeWa ramdisks (i wont do it for now)

JB 4.2.2 does NOT have this issues.


New testing kernel download here:

KERNEL_JB4.1_ZTE_v970._v1.3-R2.zip - 3.14 MB


This fix will be added on the next v1.4



Thanks to all FaceBook members for testing this new kernel, and helping me debuging the issue thru the day ...
Regards

MIUI itself is NOT compatible with Xposed framework, there's nothing i can do about that.
