KWIQ-ICS



First off, this Rom is based off Evervolv-Acies-2.2.0a1-supersonic with permission of preludedrew.. Please go hit his donate button, he's done more than a lot to bring true ICS to our OG's.




This rom is something I've been working on for fun and to get a better handle on what works for mods and tweaks on 4.x.x roms. I chose Evervolv's base because of it's minimalistic & stable qualities. This is 4.0.4 with HWA combined with what IMO is the fastest most stable kernel I have ran so far on any ICS roms. Most all mods and tweaks are built into the ram-disk so they are present at first boot every boot. This seems to provide for a more responsive experience with the proper settings. I do not claim the settings I've used to be the best possible for ICS or any other roms at this time, the current version will reflect settings I have tried out with positive results. Those parameters are a WIP and I will continue to update as I'm aware of and find better settings, all input and suggestions is highly welcomed. Feel free to run your favorite scripts tweaks and mods, if you would please share your results and best settings. Please read and follow "How To Flash" below for best results
Thanks and enjoy!


The Goods

Fully ODEXED system and framework

 write /proc/sys/vm/dirty_expire_centisecs 200
 write /proc/sys/vm/dirty_background_ratio  15 
(this way it is pre-existing from first write in case systcntrl is removed/changed)

Things to do
Code:
Optimize all system app pngs
strip languages from framework/ and system/app
status bar/notification toggles
center clock mod (possibly MIUI style)
sense 4.0 style task managing
refine ramdisk mods for better responsiveness
include option for non fso (sbc?) kernel
find better camera app/fix lag
theme some stuff
have an ice cold beer
Open for all suggestions feel free to ask!


NOT WORKING
Code:
 - No 4G
 - No Front Facing Camera
 - Camcorder F/C, Camera is buggy at best
 - Netflix(Audio works, no video)
 - Some apps may or may not work

Changelog
Code:
4-17-12 -First Public Release


How To Flash
Code:
1) Download rom to sd and verify md5
2) In recovery manually wipe everything except sd card
3) Flash THIS or another cleaner script.
4) Flash rom, when prompted flash GAPPS
5) Reboot
6) Enjoy my bootani, (had the lockscreen up after the 29th "flash",  I know..)
7) Skip the set up and disable auto sync
8) Allow phone to "settle in" for a minimum 5 minutes
9) Sign in/sync etc.
10) when all set up reboot

 I recommend changing the governor in Evervolv Toolbox/ performance and see what works best with your phone.

Let me know how it runs for you guys, the odexing made a huge difference, but it really needs to settle in for a bit upon first boot.

Glad you mentioned it, I borrowed some of Papa's oom, and tcp buffer tweaks, I need to update in the OP, totally spaced it. Sorry Papa I'll get creds up asap!

Sorry for the hold up, I posted Evervolves latest gapps in OP. Let me know if the others worked out or not.

Rom flashes fine. I used gapps from another ics and it works too. I even flash dta2sd and that works also. Phone rebooted 3 times and loaded up normally.

After it loaded and sit for a while, I managed to install most of my apps with a few exception. Those apps that's not from the market, I can't seem to install. Let's say, rewired Pandora won't install and a few other apps. No explanation, just say not installed.

Rom seems to be running pretty smooth, except as I'm typing this on my phone. Its a lil choppy. I guess you can say a lil delay from one letter to the next.

I'm going to flash "mason I sbc" and see if that makes a different.

Edit: didn't flash the kernel yet. I waited a while and install swype and all is well now. It fixed the keyboard lagged for stock keyboard.
