FIRST THING TO DO AFTER SETTING UP AN INTERNET CONNECTION / THINGS THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
Go to SuperSU app (located in your app drawer) and when the prompt for update appears, press INSTALL button! This is imperative for root because without this update you will face difficulties on giving root to apps such as Root Explorer. This will install a new list of Su Binaries.

AFTER INSTALLING THE UPDATE - RESTART YOUR PHONE!!!


If you have problems with getting the keyboard to appear, don't panic. Do this: Go to sms - new - in the message spot (or contacts) press and hold until the menu appears - press Input method and then select Ice Cream Sandwich keyboard.

I suggest you restart at least once, after you've finished setting up your new rom - it will improve overall speed (don't know why, it just does)

For a faster and long-lasting rom, it is IMPERATIVE TO DELETE the following folders from your SDCARD (not only for my rom - it is a general thing):
/data
/.Trash
/Android
/Lost.DIR




Because I have changed the theme, to get rid of those gingerbread status bar notifications line, go to SETTINGS - ADVANCED SETTINGS - INTERFACE - NOTIFICATION POWER WIDGET - Select "Hide indicator" and "Hide Scrollbar". (or you can set the color of the indicatior to something invisible).


Prologue:

I am so happy with what this project become. At first it was a rom with a theme and a few things but now it has its own personality, it is no longer a based rom, it is a hard worked rom from a hard working guy. I have spent several hours and days from my own time to make this stable, faster, stronger and in the same time adding stuff to reach look and feeling of an ICS rom.

Now that JellyBean (Android 4.1) is out (in a small manner), adding elements to this rom to reach look of JB is imperative (although it is pretty much the same as ICS in terms of graphics - changes are internally in JB).

This ROM has helped me in understanding and learning some things about Android internal's stuff. I am more than welcome to learn even more and I know that I am by far to be called a developer, mostly you can call me a modder or some sort. However, doing this sort of work will continue to consolidate my knowledge and hopefully someday I will build my own rom.

Let's talk about kernel - because here I spent almost 60% of the time:
Kernel is FLYKERNEL - This Kernel came somewhat stock because out there you can find many tweaks available to improve it even more than it is.. (tested). So I started to first read a lot of documentations from various sources and understand how everything works. First I've made horrible mistakes with internal task killer (who have installed beast v1, beast v2 knows what I'm talking about), then I started to retweak it, and then again. So here I was on my chair, flashing test builds on my hero like a crazy person.
After internal task killer was fixed with lower values, I started to implement tweaks one at a time (implement - build - flash - redo). It was not an easy task because it takes alot of time to flash a build, test it, retweak, reflash and retest.

After all of this, I have cherry-picked tweaks from this kernel and set the internal task killer to work best for our small amount of ram.

I hope all of you can appreciate this work as much as I do and hope you have a nice stay on this thread.


So why did you changed the name?

Well, today I've worked almost 12 hours on the rom and in all this time I've listened to Shpongle (youtube it) and I've said to myself, why not changing the name since almost everything works so different right now? If you don't like it, I don't care !

I have not noticed anything yet other than what I mentioned above.

This is my new favorite ROM. Thanks!

Why not a Decked_X? I think it's little faster.

@ras_mastav, have you've tried this? It has huge memory tweak within init.rc and init.goldfish.rc.

You will get ridiculous free ram and it moves fast! Faster than Decked_X I must say. And the main reason for not choosing Decked_X is because the .apks we're not compatible with some mods! I needed a pure CM 7 rom!

@Ciprilik, you can go either way, but to be 100% sure, boot into the rom for the first time and then flash the patch!

I don't like the stock Gallery app - Just install Quickpick. It's way better!
2. A2SD - I thought this was broken but since I don't have SD card partition (because you don't really need it unless you install hundred of apps) it was not tested. Will try to add it in the next release.
