-TheFirlen

But perfect rom for gaming, smooth while playing Real Racing 3, haha, keep up the good work
- Vinardo_ZzZ 2000

-Download the ROM.
-Extract Kernel.elf file
-Copy the ROM to your phone's SD card
-Fastboot the Kernel. ( If you don't know how to Fastboot a kernel, do some research over xda, you'll find many tutorials.)
-Boot in recovery by pressing volume down button continuously at the Sony Logo.
-Wipe cache, dalvik cache and factory reset through CWM
-Flash the ROM
-Wipe data again
-Restart your device
-If it asks to restore stock recovery hit yes.

TimeScape + Widgets addon - Removed (buggy) SocialLife added is next version

GAPPS For Project GX - http://d-h.st/8gw


Download quickpanel settings apk and install it otherwise you wont be able to change toggles.Open quickpanel settings and untick all toggles in 4.1 and then through systemui preferences set the toggles!
Flashing other attachments isn't compulsory! Its a choice

================================================== ================================================== ========


My Personal Settings

-Set Background Process to 3
-Tick Force GPU rendering
-For smooth performance and battery life set:
*Max Frequency - 1.3 GHz
*Lowest Frequency - 100 MHz
*Governor - Hotplug
(Hotplug governor is tweaked for better dual core handling. Switches off CPU1 faster than before)
I/O - SIO
Activated Screen State Scaling for battery life



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
According to me switching off a core saves more battery than running at lower frequency with both the cores running

I will probably flash it, but which kernel allows us to go to 1.3 ghz? Also, could u use in the next version instead of ac!d audio this app?
Link:http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2202814
Finally, i think there is an app that gives us some stuff for gaming from xperia play. Can those make any difference?

Thanks, mokiwipeout
