Tools & Apps Included
  • Ported the Acer MT launcher as its very lightweight and has lots of nice features (this is locked into memory so will always stay running).
  • links2sd So you can store your apps onto the SD card. I recommend setting this up the minute you boot into the ROM and change the settings so it automatically places apps to the SD Card.
  • CPU Setting in menu.
  • Camera ICS has replaced the default Camera as the one it comes with really isn't that good (it may crash the first time you open it, but after that it will be fine).
  • MIUI File Explorer.
  • Settings Menu taken from AtomicMod.
Other Changes
  • System Apps Updated (Play Store installed instead of Market ect.)
  • 3D animations
  • Custom theme
  • Added the ICS GenuineWidget.
  • ICS Themed Widgets
  • Installed the Google Talk with Video chat.
  • ICS Music Player
  • Adreno 200 drivers have been updated.
  • aGPS installed for improved GPS so you can lock onto more satellites.
  • Mobile BRAVIA® Engine improves video processing and images.
  • Beats Audio + XLound
  • V6 SuperCharger fixes many of the Android memory problems and speeds up the phone.
  • Kick Ass Kernelizer
  • 3G TurboCharger
  • Overclockable (best settings: Max-998MHz, Min-122MHz, Governor-smartassV2, I/O-cfq)
  • Auto-zipalign and defragdb on boot
  • Auto Calibration of the battery on boot.
  • Cleans up Cache and redundant files on boot.
  • Plus many improvements taken from this thread.
Known Bugs & Common Problems
  • The front camera is upside down.
  • On first boot the top bar is blank. To fix plug in the USB to your PC. After that it will be fine.
  • Can't play music from the home screen media wheel. Its a bug because of using the ICS Music Player
  • First boot is very slow.

DOWNLOAD - Kickass Rom V1.1b

MD5: 6dc63e381205d5b436740088275e4f32




Was built for the Vivacity, So is working 100% with that phone apart from the camera bug.
For Orange San Francisco 2 use the kernel from here: http://android.modac...erclock-kernel/

Addons

If you do not like the Acer launcher you can flash this to use the Sony Xperia S launcher. If you decide to use this launcher I would recommend overclock the phone to get best results.

Flash with CWM once the Kickass ROM has been installed.

This video was taken with the my Acer Phone so the Acer Bubble notifications aren't part of this ROM but the Sony Xperia S launcher acts and looks the same on the Kickass ROM as it does in this Video.

If anyone wants to build a ROM/fork from this feel free to do so. You don't need to ask me beforehand.

Bloatware?? The added apps are in data and are easy to remove. The other changes are optimizing the default Android settings and values or replacing system files with better/newer versions.

Try it for yourself. Install it and run some benchmarks. I am willing to bet this will score higher then most if not all the other ROMs on here.

it looks decent but it will never outrun either of the Cyanogenmod ROMS

Bold claims, you're coating a lot of people's work there.

Otherwise, it's good to see more ROMs instead of the pitiful excuse for a forum that we previously had. :P

Its just something I put together for myself. My main phone is the Acer MT. I just took most of what I did with the custom ROM I built for that and added it to the Vivacity. I thought some people may like it as its got a few unique features you won't see in other ROM's, so I decided to share it.

I am pretty sure I am the only person that has been able to port the latest Acer launcher. So apart from Acer phones this is a feature you will only see in this ROM.

Won't this just be an APK and maybe a lib? Looking at it... it doesn't seem buried in the System UI like HTC Sense.

Seems almost like you're saying the work of the people in this forum is total trash.

Narcissistic much? I have no clue how or where you have got this idea from. Making a claim that I have the fastest ROM isn't trashing other peoples work. Its a feature that this ROM has. It runs fast so why wouldn't I let people know that?

The downfall of making it run fast is its slow booting. So that is an issue with it. It also has a problem with front camera being upside down. This ROM is far from perfect but it is very fast and will do well in benchmarks.

Also why would I trash other peoples work? Honestly I don't care what other people are doing. I gave my Vivacity to a family member and decided to build a custom ROM for them. Once I made it I decided to share it. I am a Linux developer (google my username) so only do this as a hobby.

Narcissistic? EVERYONE here does amazing work, raverrr and n4y4nrules, jasonleeds, flibblesan, Sebastian404, Fuzzra. Some of which have come and gone and we would have nothing without them.

I build from source - that doesn't mean my work is appreciated more than anyone else's - in fact probably less due to the instabilities present in that form. I have no clue how or where you got that idea from either.

It wasn't the informing people of the performance, it was the way it came across - almost insulting to everyone in this forum who does amazing work for this unsupported phone.

I am willing to bet this will score higher then most if not all the other ROMs on here.


Then let the numbers speak for themselves. Let people draw their own conclusions. You shouldn't need to effectively tell people "oh don't bother with any other shoddy work, this is going to outrun everything so don't waste your time".

Sorry, I'm a little peeved and I'm going to cool off.

Edit: It's not a contest, and you seem to be challenging everyone here. If it was a contest I wouldn't be talking to tilal to try and drive CyanogenMod forward, I wouldn't be basing of Fuzzra's amazing work.

Thanks

Its linked in the main post. He don't like it if you use it and don't say you are. I have clearly said its in use and link to it.

Edit: raverrr

As I won't be doing that many updates to this as I don't own this phone anymore. I will post all the scripts changes I made so you can use it in your ROM.
