Thanks Noahk11 for the snazzy banner

FireNoteMj5 Deodex V23XxX: aims to bring poprocks speed and performance optimizations a a well as a rebuilt camera for ultra high definition photos and video...V23X will optimize everything possible in the rom

FireNoteMj5 Deodex V20XxX Ultimate Grand Finale Build: Based on Att Mj5 Stock

FireNote V20XxX was not planned but after successfully modding and porting the note 4 touchscreen controller here you go...enjoy the pinnacle of the FireNote builds...

FireNote V20XxX Finale will be the final build of FireNote for the note's been a fabulous run with an amazing device that we made an awesome thread into a community over. ..i know most of you are with me over in the FireKat threads but for everyone else v20 is a love letter to FN n3 last hoorah with everything I could possible think of optimized boosted and tweaked...i hope you guys lucky enough to be on 4.3 enjoy this build

V20XxX is the culmination of every rom build to date, plus additional tweaks pulled from other roms I build for other device' should be the ultimate mix of battery life and performance with the same rock solid stability you know from firenote builds prior...if it's anything like firekat v9 it will be a great build enjoy

Massive Improvement to the Ui rendering and 3d rendering in general
1:1 zero lag or delay with s pen due to these rendering boosts
60 fps consistently throughout the entire rom
Absolutely silky smooth
Includes both Galaxy S5 and Note 3 Weather Widgets
V20XxX The Same As V17 with Speed and Performance but with several additional battery saving mods and tweaks from Firekat V11
V20XxX Should have dramatically improved battery life for standby and screen on time
*V20XxX and insanely fast...breaking the 24000 mark in quadrant

V20XxX: optimizes everything possible
Includes all tweaks and mods from the first 7 roms
Extremely Fast and Responsiveness
Liquid Smooth Ui
Quadrant 23,500 average
Battery Life Optimization: drops around .4% per hour on standby

Rebuilt Dalvik and Cache Control
Better Ram Management
Massive improvements to GPU Rendering and Load
***Highly Optimized Note 3 Runs 15 Degrees Cooler At Max Clock On Average: after 40 mins of high end 3d gaming the note is running at 90 degrees (battery temp)...which is 17 degrees lower than on stock...the back barely warms up on v8

Average Cpu Temp (Battery Thermo): 85 degrees down from 96 degrees on stock!!! Almost entirely removed screen dimming and overheating

Zero Wake Lag: screen turns on from deep sleep nearly instantly and shuts off just as fast

Insanely Fast: Quadrant Pushing Close To 24,000 Points: See Pic Below
Actions Like App Loading and Transition Animations Happen Nearly Instantaneous
Precision Tweaks To Xml, Build Prop and Various Other Tweaks
Extended Battery Life Tweaks
Lte and Hspa Tweaks For Improved Cellular Speeds
Several Additional Junk Apk Files Removed From System

V20XxX Features:
*Several additional mods to the build prop, Xml files, and System
*Focused precise Tweaks for speed, response, and battery life
*Battery life vastly improved standby time and increased run time efficiency
*Removed the delay when turning screen on from sleeps
*Remove nearly all lag entirely even in widgets menu for
***The focus of V20XxX was more refinement over v17 in every way to further improve the overall experience

***I highly recommend you activate developer options by clicking firenote Mj5 V20XxX about phone, then unchecking force 2d rendering in developer options then turning off developer will then experience the speed of firenote in all its glory...enjoy

This rom is meant to be a close to stock experience that's been tweaked heavily for greater performance, speed, touch response, and battery life

This is not a themed build, as there are several great themed roms already out. I wanted to offer amazing performance and provide the features you need to create a theme and customize your own personal build or stick with the stock look, while getting the speed and battery benefits of a custom rom...
**I included a few pics of my personal theme showing what you can easily do with the features I added...xposed and wanam will allow you to make themes like below in just a few clicks and a reboot or two.**

*Precise Build Prop, Xml, and System Tweaks: extremely fast and smooth
*Special focus on extending battery life with the extra speed and performance boosts through various edits and tweaks
*Modded Tw Ui: modified for responsiveness and speed, 4x4 layout (Special Thanks Bri315317 For The Amazing Launcher Tweaks)

*Hardware Acceleration
*Scrolling Cache Disabled
*Enhanced Dynamic Rendering
*Faster Scrolling Transition Animations
*Locked Launcher In Memory Eliminating Constant Redraw
*Video and Audio Tweaks: Video Locked at 60 fps HD (even thru benchmarks it hardly varies)
*Faster Reboots: Reboots in mere seconds
*No Delay In Phone Ringer
***Several More Tweaks throughout much of the system

***White Samsung Stock Keyboard From MI9

Cool Fire Note Picture Box thing Lol... whatever its called at the end of each post
Thanks Noah 11

My personal setup:

ASAP After Flash Freeze or Delete Att Updater

Right off the bat I disable:
Google Chrome
Google TV and Movies
Google Music
Google Books
Google Plus
Group Play
Samsung Push Service
S Health
Sensor Service

I also Greenify any apps I download that run in the background except system apps...I do not use the xposed mod for greenify

This is just my personal way I've found to extend battery life even further and improve the experience...obviously your mileage will vary depending on what apps you use and your favorite setups.

Hope you guys are liking v8
