What is best rom for performance gaming
I'd say the best approach is to use a kernel manager along with Tasker (or an app which does the following, they exist - I used to use one a long time back).

When the app starts, change governor to Performance. And when you close, revert to whatever your standard kernel governor is.

2 things: I haven't found any glitches with this phone when running heavy apps due to its hardware specs. Secondly, a more performance oriented kernel will drain your battery all day - so you're best having a standard config and using more power only when you need it.

I had this problem before. Its because Soldiers rom flashes a new firmware/baseband when you flash the rom. If you want to go back to Renovate, you need to flash the older firmware before you can flash the rom.

But why the developer doesn't respond to our request

Possibly because there are no updates to be had and he's busy with other devices or projects. Any support you need should be found earlier in this thread.

When you flashed Soldier's ROM, there's a very good possibility that you flashed an updated firmware and/or vendor. If you are going back to Renovate Ice 1.2, you may need to flash the older ARD4 firmware / vendor files.

*edit* what @tonysunshine said lol

    RENOVATE ICE G96X Nightlies


    changelog_stable1.png


    RENOVATE ICE G96X 1.2
    • -Fixed patched sepolicy not getting flashed with ROM (this fixes booting issues)
    • -Fixed libsecure files not getting flashed with ROM
    • -Fixed removing SystemUI Tuner (Tap and hold settings icon to hide it again)
    • -Added option to hide lockscreen clock
    • -Added option to hide lockscreen help text
    • -Reverted back to a stock ARD4 kernel with necessary edits to boot deodex ROM

    I only recommend flashing vendor if you are having problems booting. If you are already on RENOVATE ICE with no issues then there is no need to reflash vendor. If you have trouble
    booting, install the ROM first with no root selected, let it boot up and get to the OS, then reboot to recovery and dirty flash, selecting the root of your choice.
    If using magisk, for some reason the dalvik cache doesn't build on first boot. I have added a script that will reboot you soon as a boot is completed if your dalvik-cache isn't built.

    still the developer is no longer able to just answer it's bad part. pity this rom was the best and by far ...
    We are trying to work on an update, but there are issues with the base stopping us.

    Just wanted to let you know, that i've started to rebase Renovate to latest BRE5 Base.
    The problem is, that we cannot boot it atm, because kitchen do not patch the sepolicy file correct,
    so rom do not build up dalvik cache and reboots all the time. As soon this is fixed, i will start on porting mods/tweaks back.

    This could take a while, because i mainly have to do it alone, and never ported back all tweaks before, so please do not expect this in 1 day :)
