Installation Instructions & User Guide - For extra ordinary experience

Installation Instructions

Use TWRP by BindassDost - Visit TWRP thread
  • Reboot to recovery & go to wipe menu
  • Just factory reset (It's available in one click)
  • Install ROM from SD-Card
  • Install Kernal
  • Wipe cache + dalvik cache (It's available in one click)
  • Reboot
And for simple CWM users:
  • Wipe data
  • Wipe cache
  • Wipe dalvik cache
  • Wipe android secure
  • Format system
  • Install ROM
  • Install Kernal
  • Wipe cache
  • Wipe dalvik cache
  • Reboot

Follow each & every instruction in order !

ROM will take 8 to 12 hours for more buttery experience & proper stabilization

User Manual - For Better Performance & Battery Backup | Gamers | Daily Users

To get more battery backup:
Go to Settings ---> Advance options --> Performance --> Advance settings --> Touch screen
OFF the Sweep to Wake Sweep to Sleep & Double Tap to Wake then ON the Set on boot button

Reason: S2W | S2S | DTW are available at the cost of more power, means touch will not go to sleep so logically it will use more battery but if you love these features then enjoy them ;)

For advance users to get more performance:
Go to Settings ---> Advance options --> Performance --> Advance settings --> Dynamic Fsync
FSYNC stands for file sync. Disabling it boosts the performance, responsiveness and database.

Warning!
Disabling has a side effect of a possible data loss but there are 0.10 out 100 chances. So disable it and enjoy the snappy phone ;)

Don't increase SD read ahead amount !

Keep your phone clean by:
Go to Settings ---> Advance options --> Performance --> Tools
Clean residual files
Optimize databases

Do it after few days !

Don't use Xposed Framework ! It makes ROM laggy.

Don't use battery saving apps, these apps uses RAM their self ;)

Don't use task manager, these apps uses RAM their self, ANDROID has best built-in task manager ;)

Restart your phone once a day :p

WARNING! ROM is tweaked at its best, don't try your own tweaking, you'll lose stability & get bad results.

Pls help ... installed the ROM but not able to input the account name as the keyboard doesnt appear. From status too not able to access the various buttons.
Wiped the data, wiped the cache, wiped dalvik cache, installed the ROM, wiped the cache and dalvik then flashed bindass kernel. Anything else need to be done? :rolleyes:

There is no keyboard issue with the ROM !

I have flashed ROM many times & not faced any problem... Have a look a screenshot below ;)
And for instructions, you have followed them wrongly (Not in order !)

Follow each and every instruction in order & properly !
