1) Could you explain the differences between Ray kernel and ThePasto Kernel please ?
2) Did you use any Ram Manager (v6-SC for example) ??? If not, could I ask you why? (I obtained great smoothness with the old RC1 and V6-SC ;) )
3) Wath is content into the Addons zip ?? Does it only disable the ICS animations ??
4) I'm not good in developing, but I see a Mod for the sensation, that allowed a sort of fast cache into the phone memory.
Could you check here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2145133) how it works and decide if can be usefull for Liquid too ??
