Well, try to use always a 2G data network (GPRS and Edge network is enough for whatsapp and gmail) and uninstall "Load Monitor". Disable Vending Updater and only sync gmail and whatsapp.

I did with this rom what I'm able. This rom is working with ext3 format without journaling, so it wastes less battery. At the same time, it is working with the lowest memory usage system because of Zeam Launcher and the framework I used.

So, it works smoothly and quickly as other ext3 roms.

I tried other ext3 roms just to compare the battery usage, and with this rom I save around a 30%.

Best.

EXT3 without journaling == EXT2
and ss far as i remember it has to be enabled kernel side,or requires edits in the way cwm formats partitions.

Not exactly, it is an ext3 working as ext2. So, with this rom you can choose between your kernels or turbo, it is not necessary format the SD partitions.

Makes no sense to use ext3 without journaling,because it becomes ext2 renamed,since the one of the few things updated from ext2 is journal.

I know about this things, thank you anyway. I've prepared a rom bundle in which people can choose between have ext3 with your kernel or use ext3 working as ext2 with turbo.

Ext3 let you work as ext2 but ext2 doesn't work as ext3. So, I've chosen ext3.

I prefer use ext3 as ext2 because is good for the SD, because saves a bit of battery and because gives me the option to choose your kernels or Turbo one. This way avoid people to format the SD in ext2 forever and ever.

This way is more versatile. That's all.

New instructions for dualboot.
New instructions for dualboot.


01. Run Windows Mobile.

02. Install "Gen.Y DualBOOT WVGA v1.0.6.0-Storage Card.cab" in Windows Mobile (it’s inside the bundle). You have to install it to "\Storage Card", not "\Windows", take care of that.

03. After it's installed, you have to edit the Windows Mobile Registry using "Total Commander" file explorer (inside the bundle). The registry location is at [\\\Plugin\Registry\HKCU\Software\Gen.Y\DualBOOT]. <--- This is located in the android mobile root but not in storage card root. (Note: If you don't manage with Total Commander, as well you can use "PHM Registry Editor" for editing the registry: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Gen.Y\DualBOOT]).

04. Inside DualBOOT folder find a registry named "AndroidBootFolder", click it and write “npkboot” without quotations marks. I've left a list describing what the keys are for:

---> "AndroidBootFolder"= npkboot <----- boot haret.exe from npkboot folder: \Storage Card\npkboot\haret.exe
---> "AutoBootAndroid"= 1 <----- 1 if you want to autoboot Android or 0 for autobooting Windows
---> "AutoBootEnabled"= 1 <----- 1 for enabling autoboot or 0 for disabling it
---> "FastBootEnabled"= 1 <----- 1 for enabling fastboot or 0 for disabling it
---> "StorageBootMode"= 1 <----- 1 always, take care of this setting

05. Reboot the mobile and changes will take effect.


Best.

Well, in my case the battery works properly during 20 hours and the wifi is working too. I disable wifi and 3G and I use 2G because for whatsapp and gmail is enough. I only use wifi when I need it but after I always disable it for avoiding drain the battery.

Uninstall Load Monitor and any Task Killer and use Turbo Kernel. With Midnight Kernel sometimes the wifi doesn't work. Follow again the installation instructions. I'm sure that you have problems with the battery and with the wifi because of Midnight Kernel.

We only use Midnight kernel for install the rom in ext3 format, after we change "npkboot" folder for having Turbo Kernel.

We use a rom installed in ext3 format, but working without journaling when you use Turbo kernel for avoiding battery drain. Please follow the instruction carefully.

Best.

Congrats!!!
Well, after having great feelings with GoDroid, I've dared to use ZeamDroid and the results with battery and the rom performance are the best. Congrats.

I follow all yours instructions (great work, too), and I've realized that with ZeamDroid you almost get the same speed working than other ext3 roms, even when you disable journaling for using turbo kernel. Great idea, man.

Thank you so much.
