...And much more optimizations i don't remember.......
SuperleggeraV7 includes all previous released fix and some mods (so no need to install them)
Before asking about problems & customizations i suggest to search in the thread,probably you'll find the solution
This rom will not wipe your data(if yo came from a previous version you'll keep personal settings and apps)
But i always suggest a clean installation to avoid problems!
If you think this version have more app then my "standard" you can use SystemCleanUp to uninstall what you don't need
If you are on ODEXED version,i suggest to use SystemCleanUp to re-odex apks after updating them through market or other ways(you'll gain in speed and partition free space)
More free ram?: under system apps or with Systemcleanup disable/freeze "Google Play Services" : is useless and eat many resources...(unfreeze it only if you wanna update it,but not needed)
Except for the mentioned features it's Stock,so it is not supercharged,or init.d tweak etc.(in this way everyone can add his own tweak and further increase performance)
Locked or unlocked Bootloader
FULL WIPE IS HIGHLY SUGGESTED!!
This time i returned to the classic flashable zip so no more needed to make 2 or three step during installation...
To install it simply flash the zip in recovery(Ray users),it will not delete your data partitions,so if you are coming from a previous version you should not loose your data&settings,but i Always suggest a clean install(wipe data,cache etc...).
During installation the zip will create 2 folders on your sdcard:
needed at first boot(open apps drawer-menu-customize lightning-restore-select SuperleggeraV7) to restore my ideal configuration for it (swipe to Right for photo,swipe to left for video,swipe up open apps,swipe down expand notifications,keep press on home for music,two click on home for quickpic,menu button for task manager,home button for dialer,two finger swipe up to add item).
here you can find the various devices specific Patches for Arc,Arc-S,Neo,NeoV,Pro,cwm and init.d for locked bootloader.
REMEMBER TO FLASH IT BEFORE YOU EXIT FROM CWM!!!!!!!!!!
Rom is fully deodexed so you don't have to worry about installing mods(lately i'll upload new ones)...BUT...i've included a flashable zip to reodex the rom when you want inside sdcard/SuperleggeraV7_PATCHES/odexer.......
Rom "SHOULD" be good for locked bootloader too(feedback are welcome)....
WARNING:FOR NOW DON'T USE ADDONS ETC.. FROM V6 (THEY AREN'T FULLY COMPATIBLE)SOONER I'LL UPLOAD NEW ONES!
This is not meant to be an explanation of the difference between a rom odexed and deodexed, rather only a few tips on how to behave when dealing with applications and mods in my Superleggera Rom.
There are many threads on XDA that explain the difference in a "scientific" way.
However, we can conclude that a rom (or application) ODEXED is faster, takes up less storage space and ram .....
BUT it is very difficult (sometimes impossible) to modify.
For this reason I advise you to install everything that you need (especially mods containing framework files) BEFORE you apply my odexer zip.
....Or even better if you kept a deodexed CWM backup from which to start if something goes wrong....
You're ready to run&hit thanks!
