Laozhu z9 - the chinese knight rises

Hey guys,i installed laozhu z9 so fast as i could.

I thought i just will try it and then will be back on vivo 2.1.0...But now i don't want to change this Rom.
Before i will start my review i want to say that i couldn't use rom first,because after inastalling i was stuck on virtuous affinity logo.That's because of kenel.I flashed hunterwu 2.0.5 perfomance and all rom started working.

Thanks to laozhu team,must of bugs are fixed.First of all - APP DRAWER IN LANDSCAPE.Now it's 3x6,not 2x6.Music controller on lock screen is fixed too,like on all new chinese rom's.

Battery life is better,than in z7 and z8,but still less,than on other rom's.
I lost 70% of battery in 5 hours(intencive using).

Scrolling and animations look smoother(on 1.5 Ghz).

Sweep2wake is more stable.

New features:transparent dock in rosie,new button backlight options.All works fine.

What can i say in conclusion:z9 is a big step forward.Laozhu becoming leader rom again.

Thanks for reading.New articles are coming!

No tweaks,no issues,just ultimate perfomance

New ROM - VIVO 2.1.0.It is based on official one v rom with sense 4.0a and nice smoothness.I recommend to install hunterwu immediatly after installing rom in recovery.
For better perfomance use gpu acceleration in options.
There is no tweaks(even for quick settings,but you can install quick settings addition)
here's your link for rom
quick settings patch
flash it,if your synchronisation(for example,with google) doesn't work

aaaaand as i promised new versions of hunterwu kernel
2.0.5 perfomance edition and 2.0.5 battery life edition
i am using first version and it's really fast!
perfomance edition:
battery life edition:

Inspire 1.7.Review

As i promised,here is review for new rom.
So i hoped this rom will be better than laozhu z8 and it's really so.
Battery life is much better,interface works smoother,but still not ideal as i want(it's only my own opinion,this rom can be ideal for you)
English is included in rom by deafault,no problems with language.
Rosie iss like in z8,but little smoother.
Today i was happy,because i switched songs on lock screen pressing ON BUTTONS,not higher,as on laozhu.
Hunterwu 2.0.5 kernel is nice,based on g11 and redux mix,multitouch is fully fixed,battery life is balanced with ultimate perfomance
Venom tweaks and hub are working perfectly.All things are working.
Don't know what to say more.If you are on laozhu you can backup your apps and rom and try this one,i am sure,you will not be disappointed.

I have surprise for users who think that laozhu and inspire are not enough smooth,discharge battery too fast,use too much memory.
I have one more rom for you all,without venom tweaks,but with perfomance and smoothness you have never seen.I am using it with hunterwu 2.0.5 ''xxx'' edition(yeah,one more surprise ;D) and i don't want to change it,even it doesn't have fully customization.

Stay here,more ROM's and articles are coming!)

Always with you all,

Nik Trinity sensation XL final

Today we will speak about one of greatest rom based on android 2.3.5 - nik trinity sensation xl port.

It has many tweaks,such as rosie settings(2d,semi 3d-2d,custom personalization button),quick settings,crt animation and many other.

Battery life is brilliant.So android 2.x is more battery friendly,as 4.x.
Everyone on xda will say,that best rom based on android 2.3 is Nik's trinity sensation xl rom and cyanogen mod 9.

I personally couldn't say it's best rom,because i started becoming bootloops after using this rom for one week,i think it's because of my individual cpu,that needs special voltage values.I don't know why,but i always need a kernel with uv support and set uv values manually.

Antutu benchmark gave me ~4500 points with trinity sxl 5.0,so it's very and very good.

Thanks for reading,come every day,i am posting reviews and news every day)

Now I am Free!

or "now i'm on aosp"
hi all,today we'll speak about aosp roms(without sense) and their advantages

After unsuccesfull laozhu build I wanted to try something new,so i tried The Second Sun 2.5 - it's like Android Revolution HD but with small memory and perfomance patches.So i become the worst bug there-my friend didn't hear me while call until i rebooted device.(it's typical for 3.5-3.6 sense based rom's)


Then i remembered how smoothy was Ice Cold Sandwitch,that i used in summer.Many tweaks and flawless work.For incredible s the latest version is 8.3(official,but i found 8.4 on devhost and posted in thread the link).
What i don't like to do in aosp rom's-it's that i need to find programs i already had pre-installed in sense(nice dialer,sms,calendar),but sense launcher and all programs with their services made my device laggy.I like ultimate smoothness,that's why i used CM9 too,but there were some minor bugs.
On other hand,finding programs is experience too.

Don't worry,guys,that doesn't mean,that I will not make review for new ROM's,I already tried many of them and have many reviews in my head,just need time to post them all).

So now I am on IceColdSandwitch and I strongly recommend it to all,who need big battery life,like smoothness and tweaks to install this rom.I'm using 1.1 Ghz and it looks better that on 1.6 with sense 4.1.Maybe on tegra 3 sense doesn't lag,but for me it's hard to live with)

Note:Desire HD already have 8.8 vesion with fully working camcoder and other things are not fixed for our device,developer just doesn't want to answer on ics user's question.I haven't tried,but i will.One of solutions is to port this rom,i already used to do it and have small experience,just need some help)

About Laozhu z8

We usually associating new build of ROM like a magical with bugfixes and new features.But today wee will speak about laozhu z8-a very contradictory build.
I hope many who read this know something about laozhu,if not-that's one of best ICS 

roms,but now it's becoming more and more bugs.
I will speak about original version,not repack,that i sended to all,but must of bugs are there too.

1.Multilanguage...what's that ?
after installing this rom i saw only chinese and english selection,that's enough for 40% on earth,but what if i am in other 60???
morelocale 2 helped me partly,some apps still remained chinese or english
2.We're making a rom for phone,but we didn't fixed dialer
real.WTF?in z6 we had fully working nice dialer,but now it doesn't search in contacts and have only english characters,that's not enough for all
Laozhu developer says,that he included NEW version of z8 kernel,but in z7 it had UV support,z8 doesn't.I think it's just z6 kernel with new build number,nothing more
4.Sweep to wake-keep in shape!
ICS rom's became a sweep to wake feature,but only for turning off.Laozhu allows you to turn it on with s2w too.But this feature was unstable since z4 and it's unstable as it was.Hope it will be fixed.
5.We didn't test landscape
Have you seen how icons in app drawer looks like in landscape?Don't you think they are a little...HIGH?!We can add a row more or move it lower.

Maybe I'm too cavilling,but i was waiting for z8 with kernel,that includes UV and 

multitouch fix,with dialer fix,more languages and new features.Now I need to replace

my dialer,SU and other working apps from z6 and other sources and i think i will use 

Nova launcher again.I'm  tired to do it after flashing every new laozhu.

There was a little hope,that new sense launcher will use less memory and will be 

more smoothly,but...

So i hope laozhu will find all bugs and of course i'm 

respecting this rom for xLoud,nice tweaks,perfomance and 

almost all things working!!!


If you are reading it,you are interested in Android and most likely have an Incredible S device.Here i will post all my reviews,thoughts and ideas.Hope it will be interesting for you all.Let's start our blog!You are welcome to correct my mistakes(english is not my native language),criticize me and discuss.
