Installation Instructions :
I RECOMMEND A FULL WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET & WIPE DALVIK Cache.
1.Enter ClockworkMod Recovery ( Recommended ) or 4ext
2.Perform a Nandroid backup for safety ( personal decision whether to backup or not )
3.Perform Full Wipe Data / Factory Reset
4.Perform Wipe Dalvik Cache
5.Make sure you place the ROM .zip file at the root of your sd card before you start the flashing process.Perform Install by zip and choose the Rom zip
6.Njoy the Rom
The first boot may take a while so please wait and dont start restarting the phone or remove battery or anything
After rom has booted up give the rom time to settle down like go into different menus and submenus till the rom settles down and you feel the speed
Go to Settings ---> Privacy ----> Tick Backup my settings --> Untick Automatic Restore & then untick Backup my Settings
This rom is bugfree . i have atleast tried to make it bugfree but if you find any bugs please report with the name of the kernel you are using . i will try and clear them as soon as possible
