It’s been a few months since Windows 8 officially gone live. I couldn’t believe it myself that I failed to notice in sounds scheme changes in Windows 8 after days of 6.5 release so I waited for a while to have more updates to push in one go. This should give you better Windows 8 user experiences reflected from real Windows 8 environment.
After deciding to leave stock ROM permanently for better use Xperia Z, I tried searching for existing non-stock ROM and must say I may need to build some for my own. This ROM will be compiled with latest Linaro toolchain with optimizations for better performance and sound reproduction. You need to have bootloader unlocked with CM10.1 kernel flashed before continue.
It took me a long while after making tons of optimizations and tests. Version 4.0 will support virtually any ROMs as I tested on stock/CM10.1/AOKP/ParanoidAndroid/Carbon and they all worked fine. Now I moved to CM10.1 ROM as there’s more to play with there with bunch of compiling and optimizations. I’ll release my own CM ROM to be used with this soon and then I’ll fully shift my focus on Windows 8′s Mountain Lion project.
Today I thought to make a quick comparison blog post of the two systems, Windows 8 and Mac Lion OS X 10.8.3 in regards to their design, features, ease of use and the flexibility they each give in terms of the different devices which work best with them.
Version 3.0 is out now. Lots of changes to be done with for this version. You can flash this on CM10.1 devices now. I tested on stock CM10.1 and it worked fine but I won’t guarantee it’ll work on any CM-based ROMs. Audio quantization is done on extreme level such as superclock frequency (256 times of base frequency) and also support 48KHz for videos. I think 256x is highest possible in existing applications. Speaker is optimized for louder volume but only when xLoud is enabled as some like me prefer original volume without xLoud. I also replaced Cyber-Shot app with volume key capture mod ones for taking underwater shots.
