[ROM] OnePlus #OneRomAWeek – SlimSaber 4.8

SlimKat Bacon SaberMod 4.8 Unofficial builds

Making SlimKat faster and smoother

SlimSaber: SaberMod toolchain 4.8.4
SlimKernel: SaberMod toolchain 4.9.3

I’m not responsible for any damages on your device.

Some of you perhaps already know me from SlimSaber main thread i9100. My focus is to compile roms with custom toolchain SaberMod for more performance and smoothness.
I choose SlimRoms because it is a lightweight and not bloated rom, but it still has rich features.
The rom and the kernel are tested by me first before I make it available online. I could have overseen something during testing, please be understand.
In summary, it is still SlimKat that is compiled with SaberMod toolchain. You can consider this build is nightly and the build from the official thread is stable and weekly.

What makes different from the official SlimKat

  • Compiled with a custom toolchain Sabermod for more performance and better battery life
  • Compiled with the GCC optimization level -O3
  • Compiled with strict-aliasing compiler optimization
  • Added patches to fix GCC strict-aliasing violation rules
  • Added ARMv7 optimized string handling routines for more smoothness and more memory optimization
  • Disabled SQLite fsync to increase I/O performance
  • Cherry-picked some AOSP bug and memory leak fixes
  • Cherry-picked some KitKat bug and memory leak fixes
