Tweak for CyanogenMod7 ROMs on the Xperia X8 Adds Faster Experience and New Features

The unspoken motto of the modification world is that there is always more work to be done. No mod is ever complete, no tweak is ever the end-all be-all and no work is perfect. That’s why mods and tweaks exist, to make it all just a little bit better.

It is with this in mind that XDA Senior Member jimdem has released a tweak package for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 that takes the insanely popular CyanogenMod and, dare we say, makes it even better. The tweak package contains a number of modifications and very easy to install. Simply place the downloaded .zip file on your SD card and flash in ClockworkMod Recovery.

The features are plentiful, and include:

Optimized response/scrolling
Faster boot/shutdown
More free ram (Thanks to Juwe ramscript)
Fast multitasking
Fast taskbar
Better audio quality in videos
Instant GPS lock (GR users)
BRAVIA Engine
XLOUD Sound Drivers
Faster screen rotation
Better battery life
Faster wake/sleep
Keyboard type Xperia Stock
Clock Ice Cream Sandwich
Dialer type Xperia stock

So a few nice theme elements and a few fun additions and tweaks to make the experience smoother and more fun. Additionally, there is a Lite version that does not include any visual tweaks, just the stuff under the hood so there’s no worries if someone doesn’t want to mess up their theme.

For additional information, instructions and download links, you can find everything you need in the original thread. Also, don’t forget to make a backup before flashing anything, just in case something goes wrong.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
