Many people have pestered me to do something other than Gingerbread. So here it is :). Like GingerZaraki, ICZaraki is my own ROM built from clean CM9 sources plus nAa's MiniCM9 sources to make it more compatible with our tiny X8's. I'm still trying to get used to ICS/CM9 compared to GB/CM7 so please be patient ;). As always, the goal of this ROM is to have an extremely lightweight, fully functional, performance driven ROM running the latest CM9 sources with some special features :). I know many of you will be thinking why ICS over JB, right ? Well JB is still a train wreck to be used as a daily IMO plus ICS still has a lot of hidden potential

Bugs

HW Video Encoder/Decoder (like all ICS ROMS)

STOP RIGHT THERE

Once you go beyond this point, please note that TEAM ZARAKI nor XDA Developers will be held responsible for the damage caused by thee. In simple terms, if you continue and phone go BOOM, we no help or responsible :).

Requirements :

1. An X8 (LOL)
2. Unlocked Bootloader
3. nAa-ics-04 kernel
4. Baseband xxxxx015
5. Basic knowledge in how to save yourself from any problems that may occur ;)

DOWNLOAD ICZARAKI V01


Please DO NOT MIRROR ! PM me if you want a Mirror and I will make one !

Instructions :

1. Download the ROM
2. Place in in your SD Card
3. Flash nAa-04-ics
4. Reboot into CWM, full wipe, wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache and wipe battery stats
5. Flash the ROM
6. Reboot and enjoy

NOTE :

1. This ROM will only work with nAa's ICS kernel. Do not pester me if you decide to pull some smartass stunt and use another kernel.
2. You do not need to flash any Google Apps. It's already included in the ROM.
3. During an update, there's no need to full wipe. Each update will preserve your data.

Battery Drain : So far, I have not experianced any battery drain and I usually get 1 day + of battery life with really heavy use. If you are having battery drain, try this

  1. Charge your phone up to 100%
  2. Go to CWM Recovery with the charger still plugged in and wipe battery stats and dalvik cahce
  3. Reboot and you will notice the 100% battery has dropped to about 96%. Let it charge till 100% again
  4. When it displays 'Charged', pull out the charger and lave the phone alone for about 5 minutes.
  5. Use the phone like normal and make sure you drain it to 0% before charging in the future (let the phone die out by itself when it's 0%)
  6. Charge it to 100% again and repeat step 4 again.

Hopefully that would have fixed your battery drain.

NOTE : It is advised to follow those steps especially if you're coming from another ROM

Sources :

I'll upload the sources when I feel development for this ROM has reached it's end (or nearing it's end). Then you guys can build your own ROMS from my sources :)

CM Team for the sources
eagleeyetom for his guide and for putting up with all my annoying questions.
nobodyAtall for his sources and advice

TeamZaraki :) (Chris95X8, lucastan96, nazz.rule, SpyderX, AckeflyRzyle, Lloir)
Xelyt for his audio fix
Senior members who helped me out
Sony Ericsson for their awesome piece of tech

P.S. : If you can, please THANK the people mentioned above :)

Notes and Notices :

1.You are not allowed to soft-mod this ROM. Why ? Read this. Since I personally optimized parts of the ROM, I know each and every component of it, which means I'll know if someone has illegally based their ROM on mine. Already caught a few.

2. No, we will not give permits to use this ROM as a base ROM for Ligux, Lewa, MIUI, Zolox or whatever port you want to do.

3. Report any bugs you face, we'll do our best to fix it.

4. Suggest what you would like to see in future updates. We will discuss to see if it's worth adding. Please note that we're not obliged to add mods and fixes just because you want them.

5. If you don't like this ROM, please save your energy and time by looking through the other ROMS the X8 forum has to offer instead of spamming this thread.

6. If you have any questions regarding the ROM or anything at all, please feel free to PM me :) don't worry, I won't bite

7. I'm still getting used to ICS from GB. So please be patient especially when it comes to bug fixing and new features.

8. Please respect all the members of TeamZaraki as you would respect me. They are just as important. Any evidence of disrespect towards any of them will be reported.

9. STOP PM-ING ME ON HOW TO BUILD A DAMNED ROM ! Eagleeyetom has made a guide. Follow it. I'm not tech support.

Tips for Better/Faster Performance

1. Overclock, as always ;) my values, which I think should be ok for most is Min CPU = 245mhz, Max CPU = 729mhz/748mhz

2. Enable zRam (either 18% or 26%).

3. Enable KSM.

4. Disable CPU Rendering (may decrease Antutu Scores and bla bla bla)

5. Delete system apps that you don't use or think you could substitute with something better from the Play Store

6. Don't bloat your system with useless apps.

7. Create and use a Swap Partition if you have a fast SD Card (IMO, class 6 and above)

8. Use any tweaks, mods, apps that you think may help. P.S. If something goes wrong or some bug is created via these tweaks and etc, please don't report them here.

9. Use This MOD by CnC ROCK. It should provide some free memory for those of you obsessed with free momory on ICS ROMS ;)

Note : These are my and others personal recommendations for a better experience on ICZaraki. The fun part about Android is you can conduct multiple trial and errors to venture out and discover a totally new performance tweak. That's why I urge many to try and report if they make a breakthrough. I'll gladly add it to this post. However, they must be proven to work (at least 2-3 people who agree they work) and they mustn't f*ck up the ROM :)

Well, I guess that's all for now. Seriously tired out of my wits :eek: screenshots will have to wait. Don't think it'll matter. As you know, i try and keep my work as "stock looking" as possible ;) so if you've seen an ICS/CM9 ROM before, you won't be missing out.
