Perhaps the best JB gaming rom (consistent framerate during graphic tasks )

De-Bloated (All useless applications removed )

Some quality applications built in

Very Gaming Friendly

7.marchinho6 says : Your ROM is " JUST PERFECT" !!!!




8.spirou91 says : Hi,

This rom is perfect, I love my Arc with it!


9.SS4Serebii says : Okay, It's been almost a day since I've been using Your 4.0 and When you say PERFECT, I seriously second that! THIS IS THE MOST SMOOTHEST AND FASTEST JB ROM I've seen run on My Arc.
No Over Clocking, No Funny things of anykind, This is sooo Bloody Smooth and has so much Free RAM even After I've installed Messenger, Whatsapp, 3rd Party Keyboards.
I can't believe I'm saying this but this is even Faster than CM10 :P
Great Job!!
Looks Like I got a keeper JB Rom! ^_^


10.Juztapose says : first thing i feel is stock-like battery draining, best cm10 ever


lolo9393 says : After more than one year various roms trials and testing I am very satisfied and somewhere very surprised by this last release.
SJB is mature and fits with our device making all other ICs roms "obsolete".
battery last awesome, few % lost at night wifi on! no trick.
phone dialer doesn't lag like either. (was my most important claim, before was no other ICS roms opening apps in less than 5 seconds , dialer or the contact interface!!!!) not to say the camera....
Great work you have done. Congratulations!!!!


kendiquest says : Your rom is always great, I love it. SJB can do that others cant. Thank for your great work


aakash43 says : Review of this ROM after 3 day usage.

UI (4/5)
Very smooth, my friend also have neo v and he said amazing no lag at all very very smooth (5/5)
Launcher is quiet ugly but smoothness compensate for this (5/5)
Every thing is very responsive (settings,messaging,contacts and many more) (5/5)
Camera UI is weird (3/5)

Battery Life (6/5)
Amazing, better than ics and gb. After 14 Hrs of normal usage % drain in battery is only 13%.(6/5)

Performance (gaming)(10/5)
No OC default settings.
Coming from Jader's UHD 4.0, i want to say that this rom is beast for gaming.

Games which are incompatible with UHD (like fast and furious 6) are working flawlessly.
Games Tested
NFS MW -(not a single lag noticed)
Carmageddon- (same as MW but starting the game is quiet tricky, first skip intro and then press home button afer 10 sec long press home button and choose the game and voila now it is working)
Csr- working like charm (not even starting in UHD)
Fast 6 - Amazing
and at last my favorite game SG Dead Zone
SG Dead Zone -played 3 matches without any FC.

Music (4/5)
First i thought i'll miss walkman but DSP manager totally surprised me. I'm Using Creative EP-830 Headset and boss what a thumping bass i got.

So totally this ROM is Tailor made for neo v.
Rating 15 out of 5
THanx harsh586 for ur amazing work.


DomusX10 says :
This ROM has reached perfection, re-invented and re-defined it, improved it and goes towards the creation of a new term to indicate it ...Absolutely perfect combination of fluidity, performance and system optimization.


pren22 says :
Ok,so i'm using this ROM for 3 day now and it hasn't got any slower i installed a lot of apps,games...and the ROM is running almost as fast as gingerbread.At first i was skeptic about this ROM,i said "well this just like other jelly bean ROM promising but,still slow..." ,so i installed to convince my self...First fresh install it was super fast,the fastest ROM ever tried,even faster than Gingerbread,so i tested it and installed apps,games,used a lots of apps,camera recording,perfect no lag on playing recorded videos.I know 3 days is not a long time but when i used other ICS/JB custom ROM's they lost on speed pretty fast after i installed apps and games,and camera recording was always a bug,fc and laggy.I know every ROM is grate,but this ROM is awesome,super fast,super stable,super smooth,everyone has an opinion...
Thank you OP for making such a awesome ROM keep up a grate work

And loads more across all threads.
Thank you

4.turn off wifi , bluetooth etc when not in use
5.before going to sleep , turn off useless apps such as whatsapp running in the background
6.restart your phone once everyday or every two days.. ( i restart my phone everytime before putting it for charging , i usually re-charge only when the battery reaches 1 % )
