First, credits to JAC & Drizzy, QTek, Cyanogen, Haykuro, twistedumbrella, CC, johnnylicious, others and of course XDA itself.
*Thanks to Reignzone for help in the thread.

Partitions needed: Fat32/Ext3/Linux-Swap
Before flashing, format your ext2/3/4 (DO IT!). Also, do not use terminal to do this, rm *.* does not removed everything. And, always wipe data before flashing.

Known Issue
WiFi Tether - If you get a warning message, just press ignore. That will close the app the first time, but open it again and press ignore again, then it should work. You might have to do it a 3rd time to get the binaries to install.
Swap is not persistent - fix here

BFS REPO - All are update patches. Just boot to recovery and flash, no wiping needed
BFS230 is the most stable, flash that if you are having prolonged problems.
After updating the Kernel, boot the device once fully, then reboot to recovery and run "fix uid mismatches"

BFS-304 and most data from SENSE UI - compliments of ccyrowski and co. Thanks!
It is an update patch, DO NOT WIPE. (Btw, it's not mandatory)
Also BFS-304, just itself has been added to the repo.


* Set swappiness to 0 and the kernel is going to start swapping only when absolutely needed.
* Set swappiness to 100 and the kernel will preemtively swap out memory you are not using.

If swappiness is set to 0, swapping will occur when I start editing a big document or navigate to a big web page. So, while I will be able to jump from window to window pretty quickly, I’ll experience delays when using one of the memory-hungry applications intensively. Try yourself values of 0, 100 and a few values in between to see which best fits your particular use profile and understand how each one of them will affect swapping.
Great thread for configuring swap, USE IT! (I personally recommend swappiness of 30 or 40, but it depends on how fast your sd card is or how you use your device, so it could also be 100).

Partitioning with Ubuntu. This is what I use personally.

SMS works fine. WiFi fails to turn on or off for me. This ROM definitely feels fast though. Are there any plans on doing a CompCache version? As with the Qtek ROM, it gets slower and slower as time goes on.

Wi-fi works, but sometimes you will need to restart since it hangs, not ideal I know. It does work, I promise.
