MiniCM9 Visuals

MiniCM9 Theme:

MiniCM9 theme, is the valid successor for MiniCM6 and MiniCM7 legacy.
It is designed as close as possible to the original specs of ICS, in order to be a lightweight, beautiful alternative to the stock theme. However it is tweaked in several parts of the UI, in order to fit better to x8's device's screen.

Screenshots:

Tips to make things faster

* You want to overclock as much as you device can handle. ICS requires more juice to run.
* Remove / Freeze system apps that you don't need, especially DSP Manager
* Install only apps that you need, don't bloat your system
* Consider using a swap partition / file if you got a fast sdcard. Swap will give more memory for the hungry ICS to consume
* Using Zram (Compcache) and KSM is also suggested as they will give you a tad more RAM for your apps. Note that they might also reduce battery life since they require CPU cycles.
* Trebuchet is beautiful but a bit on the laggy side yet. Consider installing another launcher from the market like Apex.

Don't report bugs if you are using thirdparty tools that claim to be boosting the performance (Supercharger, RAM Manager, etc.)
