* First boot should be a bit faster now

Build 9r1:
* [9r1] Switched to the Base ROM being CFS with 10mb Hack (BFS 311 is unstable right now)
* [9r1] Internation GMaps comes built-in... Woot
* Upgraded base to CM 4.2.8
* BFS seems slow on the new kernel
* Updated SmartA2SD (G1 Users), System Dalvik-Cache will stay on data partition
---- If you install any themes or do a wipe, the ROM will do this fix automatically on boot
---- Much better speed for G1 users
* Includes Latest CompCache modules

* Included AdvancedLauncher (Hero-Themed)
* Meltu`s Audiomod: v2r2
* Re-encoded all MP3/OGG ringtones/notifications to a lower bitrate MP3
---- Did some research and MP3 uses less CPU time than OGG
---- Hopefully, this will slightly improve Phone apk slow start time =)
* Switched to Contacts.apk (Eclair Backport by ChainsDD, one more try lol)
* Upgraded to Market 1.66 (Not the new 1.7, not able to yet..)
* Enabled Bouncing Menus (CM got annoyed by them and removed them)
* Added Build.prop adjustment for increased 3G speeds / EDGE 12 (one more try)
* My ZipAlign Script runs on firstboot again for system apps
---- I remember CM talking about the new installd where it doesn`t touch System Apps
---- Data App zipalign will perform during DexOpt (aka installation)
Thanks to ID# for some good ideas I implemented in this build

Build 8.5:
* SmartA2SD (G1 Users), System Dalvik-Cache will stay on data partition
---- If you install any themes or do a wipe, the ROM will do this fix automatically on boot
---- Much better speed for G1 users
* Includes Latest CompCache modules
---- (xvmalloc.ko(by me) and ramzswap.ko(by Dwang) compiled from source)
* Switched to Contacts.apk (Donut with Contact Pictures by xenio2000)
* Revised the bootanimation (just looks better)
* Added Build.prop adjustment for increased 3G speeds
---- (Still EDGE-10 for stability of EDGE connections)
* ZipAlign runs on firstboot again for system apps (for people coming from other ROMs without wipe)
* Upgraded Fix_Permissions back to 2.03
---- Fix_Permissions no longer runs on boot - use it if needed
* Added scripts rwsystem/rosystem for easier system partition remounting
* Optimised ClearCache script
* Bug Fixes... lots that I can`t remember

* Reverted Contacts.apk to v1.1.1 (to fix problems with wrong contact images)
* Reverted Phone.apk to v21 (to fix freezing problems)
* Added back ClearCache to clear data partition caches and dalvik-cache (SLOW firstboot!)
* Updated to GMaps 3.3.1

* Updated to ChainsDD`s Eclair Contacts.apk v1.1.2
* [Build 8.2r2.1] Forgot to ZipAlign new system apps, added script for phone to do it
* [Build 8.2r2.2] Reverted Build.prop, drop connections increase greatly from what everyone says - but will include in International version (it seems to work well there)


Build 8.2r1 [Mostly Build 8.1]:
* [Build 8.2r1] Fixed Paid Apps Bug
* [Build 8.2r1 No-RAM Hack] Oops renamed boot image to fix update error lol - my bad

* [Build 8.2] GMaps 3.3.0
* Fixed and Better A2SD Setup
