Welcome to VanirAOSP.

What to expect:
- This is not a McCopy ROM. What goes into our build is well thought-out and not a bunch of stuff duck taped together because we could.
- maximum optimization. We do our research. We test hard. We build -fstrict -O3 globally and include a massive array of code optimizations and memory leak fixes that we write ourselves and eventually submit to AOSP or Linaro.
- originality in our source. We generate a lot of new commits being features or general code improvements. We are open source to share and improve the community but we also try to make sure we offer a unique experience.
- aesthetics.. hopefully in your opinion :p

1- EXT/EXT4 partition at least 400 mb required HOWTO
*clean install rom (recommended)

2- install mount2sd HERE
* maybe use other apps if u want (untested)

3- check app setting & install script

4- mark all content except Dalvik Cache (System Apps-Libraries-Data-Media)
* optional: use Internal MMC Readahead to 8Kb (using 16Kb)
* optional: use External MMC Readahead to 1024Kb (using 2048Kb)
* optional: from app settings unmark Use built-in busybox (that what i did)

6- Reboot 2-3 times

7- Select runtime Use ART

8- Reboot 2-3 times
* thats time for the big wait
* maybe the phone become crazy just reboot again
* Taste VanirAOSP ;)

what do you mean when you say
"soon to come -> quick cam and flash notifications busybox, embedded root, init.d, cron etc"

what kernel will work with this?
can you give the name or a link to the kernel?
OR the kernel is inside the ZIP?

Here. Just read the thread before, it's already been posted. ;)

@vashta: brightness works for me. :)

And I love the rom, haven't found single bug, I love the inverted theme, the choice of setting different number of tiles in quicksettings is awesome, lots of features, no FC for now...perfect! ;)
Only one problem, in notification drawer - quick access toggles, if I choose different tiles to show up, there are only few of them showing/working, some of them like network mode and mobile data don't show up in drawer.
Otherwise, everything's perfect!
Im using it with Vatsal's kernel and now my Arc S and me are happy. :D Thanks for this awesome job!
