Open Framework
Accept Superuser request
Install/Update - reboot phone

Open Xposed Installer
Open Modules
Tick any you wish to use. Lets say XBlast Tools. Accept any superuser permissions.
Make any changes you want.
Reboot phone for them to be active.
ENJOY


My personal XBlast settings;

  • Visual Tweaks / Recent panel - Recent RAM bar
  • Carrier Label - Custom Carrier Label in Notification / "Sweet ROM"
  • Build.prop tweaks - 3G Speed Hack
  • Miscellaneous - Advanced Power-off menu (this enables 3 way reboot & screenshot in power menu)


How to setup Viper4Andriod FX Audio enhancement
Open Viper4AndroidFX
Install drivers then reboot
Setup how you like it.
For info on Viper Audio check HERE

  • You can used Xposed to change battery icons. Use the included ones in Xposed Modules or see this great thread from @kmokhtar79 for more

  • Use XBlast to change status bar icons, notification pulldown (transparency or picture), toggle colors, clock colors, hide notifications, etc... Experiment and find your own favorite settings

  • You will probably need to change lockscreen wallpaper after setup as it seems to change during flash, not sure what I did there, ha ha

  • Rom will need to settle for a few battery cycles before you start talking about battery life etc. ROM may lag a little to start with until it settles

  • I cooked this ROM for my own personal enjoyment and it works for me. *What works for me may not work for you. I merely put together what I like and use. If you don't like it then please don't flash it or even download it as it costs me personally for file hosting.

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR DEVICE. IF YOU CHOOSE TO FLASH THIS ROM OR ANY OF THE ATTACHED MODS THEN THAT IS ENTIRELY YOUR CHOICE IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG.

Sweet ROM V10.5 WHITE LT9 Jelly Bean 4.1.2 *

For this version I have gone WHITE. If you don’t like the theme then don’t flash it and stick to the very stable and in demand V10 which had been downloaded more than 25,000 times. I have included essential mods but kept the rom lighter so users are free to add their own sound enhancements, themes etc.

NOTES
  • Gallery takes some time to build cache (for Air View) but next time is fine

  • Snote known bugs / facts
    1. Snote is unable to be killed by task manager. To close it down you need to Long Press Home button then swipe it clear from recent applications. This is confirmed to work.
    2. Snote from Note 2 (as included) doesn’t work with finger (Pen only) and pinch to zoom doesn't seem to work either.

  • BATTERY LIFE – I would advise at least run a few cycles before you start talking about it.

  • Media Scanner - If you have Media Scanner drain (common in Jelly Bean) this fix could help

  • This is build is for standard dpi. You are welcome to try 240, 214 etc but I don't support these mods. Meaning I have no time to work on any fixes if you try to change dpi so please don't ask.

  • I cooked this ROM for my own personal enjoyment and it works for me. *What works for me may not work for you. I merely put together what I like and use. If you don't like it then please don't flash it or even download it as it costs me personally for file hosting.

You can try. I have only flashed (about 100 times, ha ha) as per install instructions in OP but I was coming from backup of my Sweet ICS ROM.

I would say it will be okay. Let us know how you go. Make a nandroid backup in case
