This is a great factory-like ROM
as I am using this as my main ROM, will try it all day tomorrow & if I feel that it is slow I will switch the SystemUI
Thinking of doing the same, making this my full time ROM. It's a toss up between this and CM10.1 (JB) with slimbean (JB) being a middle ground choice. The JB ROMs released in the last few days have reached a high level of stability.
This one gives me an ultra fast, simplified, clean and well organized interface that eliminates redundancy. I get a working FM radio and camera along with the previous mentioned unique Power Manager, plus overclocking.
JB ROMs lose the Huawei FM radio, needing Spirit FM to replace it. Found that Spirit FM will mute sound if any other app plays a sound, requiring manual intervention to restart it. JB ROMs also have no fastboot, so a reboot takes quite a while.Suggestion box submissions
This a great ROM that could be made even better. Some ideas:
#1 Add screenshots of the Power and Profile Manager to the ones on the first post. That making this a standout ROM for battery-life conscious owners (if integrate Toggle 2G in suggestion #3) below.
#2: replace Touchpal with Smart Keyboard Pro. If I install Smart Keyboard Pro, which looks identical to the JB keyboard, then I consider the overall functionality of this ROM to be superior to the JB ones. It feels like a factory ROM.
#3: integrate Toggle 2G
into the ROM. The only feature I miss of the JB ROMs is the 2G/3G toggle button. This ROM allows creation of different profiles where users can switch off GPS/sound/data/etc. However, missing is an automated switching from 2G to 3G. The 3G radio on these units drains battery very quickly. Toggle 2G allows automated 2G switching based on a set of options.
#4: HwWeatherLiveWallpaper.apk is 15MB in size. It's storage/resource heavy which I never use. I consider it a waste of space. Could link it as a download for anybody that wants it. Could take the idea further and make the package as a lightweight base, with additional ZIP packages added depending on need (eg: hw wallpapers).
