This is collaboration between myself and DjSteve, with some huge contributions from ADW_Maniac and others, you know who you are
I've been given a present today from someone in the East. so I think its fair that I pass it on...
a kernel from a gb rom, with some appropriate files to go with it.
YOU must flash these AMSS & DSP to go with it..
If you don't know how to flash AMSS & dsp then DO NOT TRY THIS
I'm not responsible for USER ERROR
there is no overclock or extra governers, but tbh you don't need them at the moment,
this is quick and stable staggeringly so. it will do for a few weeks!
now onto the nice stuff
this is a 2.3.3 rom, its pretty quick overall, and fairly stable.
it has EXT4 fs (tweaked till its nipples bleed)
it has some very funky memory hacks
its a mix of lots of different things from AOSP code, to dell binaries (we're changing what we can as we go, but frankly its not easy reverse engineering these)
3d scores, IO scores are pretty quick
Overall its very responsive rom
Linpack scores > 41
Fingerprint is set to 2.3.3 CRESPO to allow all market apps to be shown
Its not themed at all, so native gingerbread stylee
It has a modified HOSTS file to block adverts
I've included the following key functional FREE apps (support their devs please)
VTL launcher, its a launcher designed for landscape and very configurable, also uses ADW themes
total commander rc1
volume Plus (from the mighty meltus),its gingerbread so we can have a proper equalizer!
Clocksync (helps with the timedrift)
Hackers Keyboard (stock keyboard but better!)
YOU MAY NEED TO FACTORY RESET, especially if you flash it over a 2.2 rom
If you're flashing over 2.3 build then at least delete dalvik cache.
but factory reset is recommended
BACK UP YOUR SDCARD BEFORE FLASHING (at least the any photos!) failure to do so may see them eaten by the phantom photo fancier.
thoroughly recommend the following apps to go with this
lgCamera (very tweakable 720p camcorder!)
Fastweb install (works fully here)
GET YOUR COUNTRIES GPS.conf from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1233359
extract it and copy it (with total commander) to etc/gps.conf
if wifi doesn't work then you may need to change the number of channels in the wifi advanced menu
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<Please note this is still a WORK IN PROGRESS >>>>>>>>>>
