Installation instructions

  • Please read the flashing instructions carefully and follow it exactly.
  • Download the ROM.zip and xposed.zip to your SD Card
  • Download a 4.2 Kernel of your choice
  • Reboot to recovery
  • Make a Nandroid Backup
  • Wipe Data/Factory reset
  • Install zip from SD Card -> select the ROM.zip
  • Install zip from SD Card -> select the Kernel.zip
  • Reboot
  • Once the phone boots up, enter your information in the setup wizard.
  • Turn off phone and enter the Recovery again
  • Install zip from SD Card -> select the xposed.zip
  • Go to Advanced -> Fix Permissions
  • All done, reboot and enjoy.


Kernel is NOT included! Choose any latest 4.2 Kernel


Just one more thing, fixing permission messes up the XUI MOD settings.
So please open XuiMod and select "Scrolling Mod"
Select Scroll Configuration -> Turn it off and on again
go back one page
Select Overscroll effect -> Turn it off and on again


For best smoothness, go to Developer options and set all the 3 Animations scales to 0.5x

FAQs:
1. My screen does not wake up wehn i press the power button, just the navigation lights come on but nothing else.
Ans: The issue is witha conflicting script and will arise if you are from a JB out of the box and using Bindaas bosst kernel.
To fix this you need to delete all the init.d scripts except the SWAP script, using Root explorer or ES file explorer...

One word Awesome....!!!!

Its as fast as SUVI TITAN v15 ( I always had a nandriod of v15;) but from now onwards this will be my new nandriod)

Initially i experienced lags
So i was going back to SUVI TITAN v15 but before going back i thought lets experiment, so i flashed stock kernal :D:D
after flashing stock kernal i noticed that snappiness was awesome but camera and messaging didnt work.
enjoyed the snappiness for 2 hrs then again was going back to SUVI TITAN v15.....
But before going back to SUVI TITAN v15 i flashed platinum.... and woooaaahhhhh
Everything is awesome......
Thanks a lot bro:good::good::good::good::good:

I wanted a ROM in which whatsapp (10MB), Hike (10MB) and Drony (40MB) (proxy bypass for college Lan) would always work in background
SUVI TITAN v15 gave great performance but available RAM was just 70MB when all the processes were running (With greenify ON),
But this ROM is Beast it gives 160MB free even when above apps are running. Tested the ROM for almost 12hrs now

Games Tested : Virtual tennis pro, FL commando, 24, Real cricket 14........ No lags (no need of gltools)


Only thing missing from SUVI TITAN v15 is the silky smooth sound quality....(No cracking + 3D effect)
Also cant change dpi to 240:( bcoz lockscreen ring and dialer gets cropped
But no probs bcoz after experiencing the speed and snappiness this ROM cant ask for more...
Again thanks a lot...:good::good::good::good:
Tested the ROM for almost 12hrs now
off to sleep:eek:


And If anyone liked my review ...... please thank @ibshar for this awesome ROM

Thanks for all the review guys... I will try to answer some of your problems.
@pradeepmaddy: Try re-calibrating your batter once, It should not drain so fast. Perhaps the phone is not showing the correct percentage due to which it is showing it like that, try restarting the phone and see the difference in battery level.
@ashish_zarekar: You can configure the gesture navigation app to disable for specific applications specially games. About the wake up problem, I think it might be related to kernel, try some other version and check.
@manjunath1958: To set the lock screen widget, just wake up phone, then without unlocking swipe left to right form left edge. Then you will get an add button there, just add the xwidget from there. And then you can remove the other lock screen by long pressing and deleting it. Tethering and hotspot should work fine, enable it form Settings->More->Tethering & Portable hotspot.
@SMARTY BOY: Thanks for the add-on, I will add to op.
@Kapil Gureja: I have uploaded a few xwidgets that I use, you can download this the zip file. This is not flashable, just copy and extract to your SD Card.
