And in the case of that guy, he has used the phone very less, you can see it

Sent from my Xperia neo V

And here are an explanation for that..

Brightness is at the lowest setting that you get with "disable auto brightness" enabled. And i even found that too much sometimes late at night.
But during that time i used maximum brightness for a short time as well to read a pdf.
Wifi is in my room. baseband 64 with very good signal reception (full bars) and 2g only. (data disabled)

I'm not trying to say that everyone should get the same battery life as me. In fact you should NOT get that much battery if you are using your android phone the way it was meant to be used.
And that is: the "always on" nature with updates and notifications etc.

What i'm highlighting here is that the version does not have a deep sleep issue at least. If it drains too much power while using some phone functions, that's different...
One twitter app that checks for new content every 5 mins would be enough to never let your phone deep sleep for example.

Anyway, after downloading an listening another 1.5 hour long podcast yesterday, here is the final picture before i charge my phone.

Question codename_9 onwards
Instructions

for lockbootloader
- after restoring the backup, u need to install CWM manually (searh for it, will add link later on)
- then u need to install stock wifi module
- delete /system/lib/module or /system/lib/modules
- then flash this: Stock wifi modules (this is from Night-Elf's kernel thread)
- after u finish all of the above make a new full backup, so u have a fully a nice one to restore when u messed it up

patch for neo
- after finish flashing the rom, reboot into recovery
- flash custom zip & navigate to folder named -=codename_##=-
- select codename_9_neo_patch.zip

walkman & volume+
- to really feel the different, use headphone
- open walkman, play your favourite music
- open volume+ > go to headset setting > enable audio modification > EQ Presets > select 'Beats Emulation'
- press home button to exit & enjoy it

odex script - optional
- use this wisely & with precaution
- flash custom zip & navigate to folder named -=codename_##=-
- select codename_9_odexing.zip
- it will odex the rom (system/app & framework only, data partition are excluded)
- remember this, if you want to replace any apps that already included in the rom, add it before you flash this zip
- or flash rom > add your apps > odex the rom (since my rom will not wipe your data, you can do this over & over again )
- or you end up with bootloop (reflash the rom & its fixed )

QuickPanel Setting
- disable brightness & flashlight on statusbar, it will slow down battery use in display
- also disable network widget, some user reported that it is not working

Spare Parts - removed
- window animation > off
- transition animations > fast
- this will make it snappier

SetCPU
- download it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=505419
- don't forget to thanks there
- set smartassV2, min freq 245Mhz & max 1024Mhz (recomended)
- run the recomended for at least 1 day, let the phone settle down - Important!!
- when the phone settled down, you can set the max to the freq that you desire
- add profile for screen off, use conservative, min 122Mhz & max 460Mhz (any lower and you may feel lag)

Setting ringtone/alarm sound
- open the music file with ES File Explorer, assign it as notification/ringtone/alarm

Google Maps 6.5.0 ownhere/Brut.all
- I prefer this one
- download it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=12361226
- don't forget to thanks there

Wifi issue, if any..
- use this only if you have issue with wifi signal drop
- Blade Wifi Fix

Recommended
- use QuickPic & Boat Browser
- it is faster & use less ram compare to stock one

And in the case of that guy, he has used the phone very less, you can see it

Sent from my Xperia neo V

And here are an explanation for that..

Brightness is at the lowest setting that you get with "disable auto brightness" enabled. And i even found that too much sometimes late at night.
But during that time i used maximum brightness for a short time as well to read a pdf.
Wifi is in my room. baseband 64 with very good signal reception (full bars) and 2g only. (data disabled)

I'm not trying to say that everyone should get the same battery life as me. In fact you should NOT get that much battery if you are using your android phone the way it was meant to be used.
And that is: the "always on" nature with updates and notifications etc.

What i'm highlighting here is that the version does not have a deep sleep issue at least. If it drains too much power while using some phone functions, that's different...
One twitter app that checks for new content every 5 mins would be enough to never let your phone deep sleep for example.

Anyway, after downloading an listening another 1.5 hour long podcast yesterday, here is the final picture before i charge my phone.


Quote:

Q: I found a big bug on your rom !!!
A: Reflash stock 42/62 firmware first, then u can report back.


Quote:

Quote:

Q: Can i Overclock the CPU?
A: Yes, before u do that, let the rom settle down with default freq @ 1024Mhz for at least a day

Quote:

Q: I did overclock the cpu to play games, after a while it reboot & bootloop.. Help please..
A: OC one freq step at a time, use it for a while to test it stability. During the testing uncheck 'Apply at boot'.


Quote:

Q: How i can tell the GPU (graphic) is Overclock with Night-Elf's kernel v9.6 experimental?
A: It will OC when u open a 3D game


Quote:

Q: Why 3rd party camera (i.e. fastburst, instagram etc) apps not working?
A: Remove Flashlight (camera related) from StatusBar Widget, open QuickPanelSetting.


Quote:

Q: I want to have stock/original Gmail, how i can get it?
A: Uninstall the current one in the rom (use titanium, intek's system cleanup etc), reboot & download a new one from Play Store.


Quote:

Quote:

Q: I'm having issue with SuperSU, some apps stuck at "asking for root"
A: open setting > manage application > SuperSU > Force stop. Then reboot

Quote:

Q: I want to switch to Superuser instead of SuperSU
A: If u want to switch to Superuser, remove SuperSU first. There is an option in SuperSU, Cleanup > Switch superuser app. Then reboot & flash Superuser zip.

Quote:

PROTIP:

For extra performance, disable notifications. Logging does not impact performance much.

installed the new rom for unlocked boot..
looks everything fine.
will share my experiencr tomorrow.

Edit: first impression
wifi- ok
wifi teathering- ok
camera front & rear- ok with hd record.
bravia engine & xloud- ok
for me... all ok
......................................
major noticible difference with respect to stock rom:
scrollable notification widget
some speed tweak
Some new apps-- cpu spy, spare parts..
.................................................. ..........
request to developer:
some apps i like has been removed like - xperia timescape for sms ,missed call ...all in one. although other timescapes are available in market but not for sms. so can provide a zip so that can be pushed to system via recovery.
