Hi, I've been tweaking and testing all the ROM, everything perfect, im using "No-Frills CPU" for unleashing the Carbon Kernel power.
Governor: Alucard
I'll be posting the results and the battery life the next months...

But I have a big problem.
SOLVED: XInternalSD xposed module.
I was installing apps trough google play when "Insufficient storage space" notification came up.

I have 500 free mb in the internal-root partition !! (5,72GB TOTAL) Why is this message coming up too soon?

Is there any way to tweak the minium free space that triggers that notification and limitation? Like a flashable or xposed module?

I'll try XInternalSD to move apps to the internal sd... Hope that works...

I use Xcooldroid to move apps to SD. From no space to 3GB free.

Thanks for your answer, vrij.

Hehe XInternalSD is working like a charm. You should try it :) Because internal SD haves a bit more write/read speed than external SD (maybe it's unoticeable in daily-using)

Also xposed framework and lot of modules are working nice.
INTELLI3G XPOSED MODULE Not working (it leaves you with no phone signal)
Nothing to worry about, but obviously it would be nice to switch to 2G when you are not using your phone.
So I'll try [APP][2.0+] Toggle2G (Tasker/LTE/Rootless) [v0.3.5 / 1/13/2013] and post the results here.

I also noticed a little probability that phone freezes+instant reboot if you try to do lot of tasks when phone is "booting" or recently powered on (black screen, bugged recent app list[long-press home], launcher can glitch, etc). So you must keep it calm a few mins after turning it on. After booting up the phone, MAX CPU freq will be limited to 1401MHz. After a few mins, you can change MAX CPU speed to 1689MHz. Kernel probs

Carbon Kernel ondemand governor is not bad, it's working like it's supossed to do (default governor) but I don't specially like it. Im testing SMARTMAX as it seems to be a good option for balanced perfomance/battery.

I'll keep testing and reporting.

Be careful about flashing custom kernel to this ROM. Do a TWRP/CWM recovery backup of your full-working and customized ROM, then you can try installing kernels. If something goes wrong, you can still chat and call :)
(1- Wipe Cache+dalvik.
2-Flash kernel zip.
3- Wipe Cache+dalvik)

You can face WiFi not turning on issues (and maybe other bugs). You can even face "system ui has stopped working" problem
Be very careful. Always do backups.

Also CARBON KERNEL seems not 100% stable.
