These files do not wipe the data partition, so it is safe to flash over an old version and retain settings/apps/data.

Known issues

- Some users reported being stuck at boot, need to verify as both packages work well for me. A locked bootloader is most likely the cause.
- Supercharger script doesn't work properly. Furthermore, it is not needed since lots of tweaks have been integrated.


- First boot might take a while since there are a lot of tweaks to be executed.
- Reboot once again after it has booted for optimum performance.
- If you experience lags or slowdowns after updating to a new version, 'Wipe Dalvik Cache' in CWM -> Advanced.
- If you use Link2SD, make sure to 'Recreate Mount Script'.
- If you use DarkTremor's Apps2SD, make sure to reflash it in CWM.
- Wipe data / factory reset if you came from 1.1 or below.

Installation for update packages

1. Copy update zip to SD card.
2. Boot into ClockworkMod Recovery.
3. (RECOMMENDED) Do a Backup.
4. If you want a clean install of the main ROM, do a full wipe. Otherwise, skip this step.
5. Flash zip package(s) (always flash main ROM first).
6. Reboot.
