I ain't posted in a while, but been an avid stalker ;).

I'm using this rom with apex launcher in system apps, and supreme trilogy V3 and OC to 1.19, and I must say my phone has never felt as reliable and quick as this, even when it was on GB.

This is defo a keeper for me. :D

Does making Apex a system app make any difference? I just usually install it, and remove the default launcher using Rom Toolbox.

It seems to have made a big difference for me a lot smoother and quicker, and had no re-draws either when exiting apps/games etc.

Been using it since last night and had no problems.

OK, made it a system app, I'll let you know!

Update: Doesn't seem to make any difference, but then again, it was fine before!

I'm using smartass2, but I don't think it makes much difference between that an ondemand.

I'm using CPU tuner and have 4 different profiles set.

As regards to launcher, maybe me putting it in system is just having a placebo effect ;) but definitely feels quicker and have had no re-draws whatsoever since.

Sweet, working perfectly. Did a backup just prior anyways. Little more fine tuning and then I will have a ROM that is ripped!

Maybe it's just me, but it seems that the CPU speed in this rom does not go below 320mhz (by default, without something like No-Frills taking over). And then I flashed Paul's OC kernel and it also does not go down to 245, but at least drops to 300. I'm using CPU Spy to see this behavior. Can anyone confirm?
It seems a waste to have the CPU running at 320mhz in idle state. The stock boot.img and CM9 both go down to 245, and it seems to cause no problems running those roms.
Also, after setting the CPU to 1190 in No-Frills, I had a crash and reboot. I haven't had that before, but I can't say for sure it was that the speed was too high for my CPU. Maybe it was something else?

The reason for this is there seems to be a lot of lag at wake up on most of the rom's for this phone as well as caller I'd lag . Setting the CPU slightly higher helps or is supposed to help things run smooth when the phone wakes up .Either way when your phone goes into deep sleep it isn't running on these values as you will see running CPU spy.
As for over clocking my phone runs fine on 1.228. As is already known some phones chips can handle higher settings then others but in all honestly there is not much difference between the slightly lower settings then mine.
