Yes. There used to be separate zips for defy(+) and bravo -- now it's one zip.

Defy is my "daily driver" with CM7 but since this guide was posted in May I am very tempted to try CM11 as performance is lagging compared to the dual core 1.2ghz phones I've tried.

How has stability faired since then? Hoping all my apps can just backup and restore and still run.

Thanks for the amazing guide.

I found my Defy hanging in a drawer this weekend and it was still running CM7.

Thanks to your guide I've updated it to SlimKat and I'm happy to say that performance is pretty solid so far.

Resize partition?

I've followed the instructions to the letter, and when I get to installing CM11 I get:
Please resize partition before installing CM11
Then it fails to install.

Any ideas?

Hi! In my first post, I wanted to share with you the best settings I found myself testing the Defy.

Kernel Settings, for stable, no-reboots, daily use.
I changed parameters with Kernel Adiutor App.
Build version tested: cm11-20151129-Nightly-mb52x

CPU Governor: Interactive, 300-1000mhz cpu freq. (default nightly).
I/O Scheduler: Internal Storage: SIO - Read Ahead 128k (deadline seems very unstable to me).
External Storage: Same settings.

Kernel Samepage Merging: KSM: Enable

Low Memory Killer: Medium Settings

Virtual Memory: Swappiness=0
Z-RAM=30 mb

More than three days that it is running smoothly without sudden reboots.

Please share your results!
