--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
F.A.Q's :-
  1. How to enter in touch recovery?
    >> Press volume up button one time just after LED flashes and vibration.

  2. Is this working on blah blah?
    >> I don't know. Do some research.

  3. Why I'm unable to flash kernel.
    >>Is your bootloader unlocked? Flashing kernel required a unlocked bootloader.

  4. Battery drains like hell. WTF?
    >> Not kernel problem. It's your apps that are waking up device from deep sleep.

  5. Is it pre-rooted ?
    >> Yes it is, FXP's rom's also comes with superuser pre-installed.

  6. Does this kernel has X or Y mod?
    >> Do some research. Check thread, repo, commits etc.

  7. Which governors/IO-schedulers to use?
    >> Depends on your usage. See here for more info.

  8. I lost speedy kernel after new FXP's update?
    >> You must have flashed new FXP's rom without removing boot.img, flash Speedy Kernel again.

  9. I need more info on something?
    >> You can find all answers here, Google is our best friend.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips and Tricks :-
  1. Network Settings:-
    • Mobile Network > Network Type Selection> Select 2G (saves battery)
  2. Personal Settings:-
    • Personal > Display > Brightness > Turn Auto Brightness Off (set to lowest, increase from toggle when needed)
    • Personal > Display > Sleep > 30sec is more than enough (saves battery)
    • Personal > Location Services > Off (turn on from toggle when needed... saves battery)
    • Personal > Accounts & sync > Off (switch on when needed... saves battery)
  3. System Settings:-
    • Developers Options > User Interface > Force GPU Rendering > ON (increases performance)
    • Developers Options > User Interface > Windows Sale Animations > 0.5x (reduces lags if present)
    • Developers Options > Apps > Background Process Limit > 2 (can use your own number... gives you more ram other words releases ram)
    • Performance > Memory Management > zRam > 18% default (compress memory for increased virtual capacity)
    • Performance > Memory Management > Allow purging of assests > ON (allows the freeing of more ram when needed)
These above settings will help you increase performance & battery life!!
