I built a current CM 10.2 tree using JustArchi-inspired optimisations (gcc 4.8.3 and -O3; as well as correct CPU target of a15 instead of a9; nothing that would require extensive code changes). The result is a fairly consistent improvement in most benchmarks, in particular many 0xbench's 2D tests are consistently *many times* faster.
I did it for myself, but would anyone be interested in me sharing it? It would be for i9195 only as it's the only device I have.
The point of such a ROM is that it can be flashed on top of CM 10.2.1.3 and just works -- no wipes necessary, no apps added or removed - it's exactly the same code, just compiled with newer tools and different flags.
That was the plan. I checked out "stable/cm-10.2" branch, since it had last commits this year, as opposed to "cm-10.2" branch which had last commits last year.
I haven't been on this forum a long time, i wanted to have some advice on updating the fw of my phone.
i have installed 10.2-20140107 unofficial serranoltexx and used it since, it works well but i notice hiccups now and then. I saw that CM 10.2.1.3 (stable) is out and i want to install it. Do i have to do a (full) wipe and install all my apps again or can i just download and install the 10.2.1.3 update without having to do anything with kernel and gapps and wiping etc..? If so, can i expect it to work just as good as i do a full wipe?
ps. i searched the forum but some say full wipe is necessary and some say i doesnt, thats why i ask here..
