    Suggestions/recommendations for and after installation [IMPORTANT]


    0.Don't restore anything from titanium backup.. its better to download apps from play store...
    1.Rom is tested only on fxp, mesa jelly bean and nAa's 2.6 kernel kernel , however it should work fine on others[/B]
    2.In MX player , by default use SW decoder.. if the video doesn't work properly , only then use HW decoder.
    3.Keep all the animation set at 0.5x in developer options
    5.[optional] you can delete 1 of the launcher apps. [2 included]

    NOTE : do not use seeder or anything else with this rom ( you dont have to ).. if you do then don't post here about battery life... thanks.


    Note : only for unlocked bootlader
    1. copy super jelly bean and gapps to sd card
    2. flash any jb kernel for your device..
    3. (optional but recommended: flash stock ics .587 ftf excluding kernel and simlock.ta files..)
    4. boot into recovery
    5.full wipes
    ie :
    wipe data / factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    wipe dalvik cache
    in mounts and storage , wipe system , data and cache

    6. flash Super Jelly Bean
    7.flash gapps : use this link : Gapps For SJB
    (8. flash a patch (if available!))
    (9.flash wifi modules of respective kernel (if they are needed)

    Note : after install , let the rom settle for atleast 15 to 20 minutes.. then reboot and use as normal :)

    ( gapps not included )​

    Caution : I am not responsible for any damage done to your device or your head by using this :p you are making these changes on your own..

    Rules : All XDA rules.
    Do not use this rom as a base for your own custom rom. because a lot of hard work has gone into making it.. thanks.

    FAQ :

    I am having bootloop( never boots just shows kernel logo and bootanimation ) . What to do ??
    Please follow the steps and install correctly because hundreds of users already use the rom without any problem !

    I am having a laggy rom
    Do a clean install of the rom ie wipe data(factory reset) , wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache , wipe system , wipe data and cache

    My wifi is not working
    flash the wifi modules (present in addons ) of the respective kernel . it will be present in the kernel thread !!

    My keyboard/hardware keyboard is not working
    You need to disable the hardware keyboard, to enable any other keyboards. The hardware keyboard will still be working, even if you disable it ;)

    I get a status 7 error in cwm after wiping system

    1.That's normal because the rom.zip wants to get information about your phone and after wiping system it can't do that. Open the zip on your pc, go to META-INF -> com -> google -> android and open the updater-script with a text editor (like notepad++). Now you delete the first few lines with "assert" and "getprop". Repack the zip and you should be able to flash!

    2. If you did the first method and you still get a status 7, could it be you are on lupus kernel? Read the FAQ for more info/help!

    CPU settings :
    No OC , interactive governor and deadline as scheduler !!

    which kernel do you use ? :
    nobodyAtall's 2.6 kernel with No OC ,stock settings

    Can I even use lupus kernel ? :
    It looks like you get a status 7 error while installing the rom on lupus kernel, so better use another one (you can install the rom on any kernel and then flash lupus kernel if you want to, but it seems like there are some problems with lupus)!

    Why is rotation not working? :
    You have to enable Auto-Rotation in settings -> display -> auto rotation!

    How to fix superuser? :
    Please try flashing this. It should remove the superuser.apk from /system/app. Then please reinstall superuser or supersu from playstore. If the zip doesn't work, please report! :)

    How to enable ANT+ on this rom? :
    Follow the steps on this post by steinarlundemo. Thank you for this great method!

    How to disable the button backlight? :
    In system/etc/hw_config.sh, look for echo number > $dev/button-backlight/ and change the number! Change it to 1, to disable the light. (Thank you washwash for pointing it out here)

    How to fix offline charging (charging when phone is turned off) on this rom? :
    Flash the zip from this post by sud.vastav. Thanks for this!

    what can i do to repay you ?
    just hit the thanks button here

    pm me if i've forgotten somebody..
    Few basic tips to really get the most battery out of your device..

    1.Try changing the kernel if you have a heavy battery draining
    2.Reduce the screen brightness and the screen time out to a comfortable value
    3.Don't Overclock as i said many times already.. use 122/1024 ( even for gaming )
    4.Turn off wifi , bluetooth etc when not in use
    5.Before going to sleep , turn off useless apps such as whatsapp running in the background
    6.Restart your phone once everyday or every two days.. ( i restart my phone everytime before putting it for charging , i usually re-charge only when the battery reaches 1 % )
