NOTE: First Boot takes about eight minutes on my phone, be patient!
NOTE 2: If you end up having issues, always go back and try wiping. Start fresh and see if things don't improve.
NOTE 3: It'll take awhile for everything to settle down. Especially
after installing gapps and syncing accounts. Give it a few minutes to
settle and reboot a couple times. The system will speed up after that.

==== '''Helpful Tips''' ====
Overclocking is available in Settings --> Performance --> Processor. Tweak it as you like, but know
this: not all OV's were created equally.
==== '''Q & A''' ====
Q: What Baseband will this work on?
A: It works with all current Baseband, you do NOT need to update your Baseband, I'm still on ZV4
Q: Do I need the VM670NH recovery to install this ROM?
A: No, it's the one I use and recommend
Q: Can I use an A2SD script with this ROM?
A: No need...the rom will move your apps and dalvik to the EXT partition on your SDcard, if you have an EXT partition!
Q: Do I need an SDcard with EXT partition to install this ROM?
A: No, but it is very recommend to have one.
Q: Why was so much removed from your ROM?
A: This OS is so big it leaves very little room on your phone for your stuff.
Q: What do you mean by "foreign"?
A: Anything other than English and Spainish.
Why was Dalvik-Cache moved back to the Data partition?
Gapps did not like it being on the SD-EXT partition and you would
get the "Optimizing app x of xx" with every boot up. NOTE: Dalvik does
get really big, you may run out of room in Data if you have a lot of
apps. NOTE 2: Apps are still in the SD-EXT partition, only Dalvik was
Q: Why did you change scripts?
A: The A2SD++ script is written better, which allowed me to put
Dalvik-Cache back on your SD-EXT partition without any issue. I did edit
out parts of the A2SD++ because there is no easy way to erase the
Apps-Private and Apps-Data info from the SD-EXT, so I wanted to keep the
info on the phones DATA partition. Keeping the old info when flashing a
new ROM creates issues, just like when you do a dirty flash. Also I
found the ZipAlign did not work as well as the one I was using, so I
removed that part of the code from the new script.
