ok ladies and gents...this is ONLY!! for install with CWM. Whenever there is a new MAJOR firmware release to a new version of Android (i.e. going from 4.1.x to 4.2.x), I will say push the firmware to your X5 and then you can reinstall CWM. That way the RKBatchTool will do a low level format of the NAND and keep your system running smooth. CREDITS go out to Minix for making this stellar rom used as a base!! UPDATE (2/16/13): ok so I finally got the formatting script working and it formats ALL the partitions correctly into ext4 format. It turns out that it was mostly related to the CWM previous releases were not able to format ext4 correctly and I believe also because the system partition was never really a true ext4 format. Well all is well now with the last 2 new releases from fun_, and from now on I will have a new setup on how to install my roms and keep up with the new firmware of Minix without having to go through all the hassle of reinstalling CWM and what not. I will drop my new roms later on...its 2:30am here right now and i'm bout to sleep now. Laters!! UPDATE (2/18/13): now you will have the option to change kernels after my rom is installed or before or whatever you want to do. As always, make a backup first cuz I'm not responsible for you losing your stuff. Read below for more info. UPDATE (3/07/13): Most likely this weekend, after some testing of course, I will be changing the way we install the kernels for use with my roms, so look out for that! UPDATE (4/08/13): I have refrained from updating to the new firmware until Minix fixes a few of the bugs. They said sometime this week, so we will see. Until then I have changed a few things, but more importantly how to flash everything. Well without further ado...here it is folks!!

What is has in it: Code (Text): Rooted! Bloatware removed Gameloft fix (credits Christian Troy) build.prop edits (just minor ones so that most games work, but sorry...no Tegra 3 games. Also these DO NOT work with Sopcast app) Apex Launcher (updated) Inverted Google Play - fixed and now able to buy apps (credits Bad Seed Customs) Inverted Google Now - updated to newest (credits B-Boy) Data added with some hopefully useful apps, don't worry they can be uninstalled Screen filter app init.d support (if you guys want to add tweaks, I will add my own later, but for now...)

Updated to koush's Superuser app and removed ChainDD's version Added new bootanimation (made by me! I will work on the quality as time goes on) What it doesn't have in it: Code (Text): see the NOTE below 5.1 Optical S/PDIF...yet... NOTE: if you want 1080p support, you must flash the new firmware first!! Then you have to reinstall CWM and then you can flash my ROM again! Or you can use my kernel flashing zip, but you use that at your own risk. Downloads are below in post #2. I have updated the way we flash the kernels again, so you can use the ones from above if you feel the need to change kernels. NOTE 2: Apex Launcher is the only home launcher that is installed, so if you want a different launcher, make sure you install another one FIRST before you delete Apex Launcher. Installation instructions: 1) Copy the .zip to your X5 2) Reboot into CWM 3) Click on "Install zip from SD Card" 4) Select the .zip and wait I would do a Wipe Data/Factory reset twice to be safe and no errors, even though my ROM will delete your data anyways...so do a backup before you flash!! You no longer have to wipe, as my rom will wipe and format automatically...so still do a backup before you flash!! If you guys find anything, let me know. Also, if you want me to add anything or look into something let me know as well...thanks and I hope you enjoy!! Please hit the "Like" button if you enjoy this rom, thanks!!
