T68 & M96 Enhancements

To whom it may help:

1. I've modified the root process for our T68 (also works on M96) to install SuperSU instead of Superuser. Follow the instructions on this file: root.7z

2. The booxtor's update (20141014) for T68 (20141013 for M96) can work pretty awesome if you swap the original build.prop (remember change permissions to rw-r--r-- (0644) and owner to root) by the one attached on this post but previosly you must have installed: Lightning Launcher eXtreme (the attached "LightningLauncher" file is not the app, it is a really good presetīs backup for our device, so unpack the attached "LightningLauncher" folder on /sdcard/ path and restore it through the launcher settings).

3. With a CPU manager (I use Antutu CPU Master Pro) set:
-Within "Main" tag: Min. 996 / Max. 996 / Scaling: Ondemand / Set on boot (checked).
-For "Screen Off" profile: Max. freq. 396 / Min. freq. 396 / Scaling model: powersave.
-For "Low Battery" profile: Battery lower than 99% / Min. freq. 996 / Max. freq. 996 / Scaling model: ondemand.
-Within "Advanced" settings, change the I/O Scheduler to "CFQ" and "Set on boot" checked. (NOTE: the best I/O Scheduler for M96 is "Deadline").

4. To free space on system you can debloat your device easily deleting the next app list (with "SystemApp Remover" for instance, to avoid leaving residual stuff on your device):

AgingTest-release.apk (needed on M96)
AlReader.apk
Browser.apk (Other Browsers like Lightning Browser are recommended instead this default one)
Browser.odex (Other Browsers like Lightning Browser are recommended instead of this default one)
Calendar.apk (Other Calendars like aCalendar are recommended instead of this default one)
Calendar.obex (Other Calendars like aCalendar are recommended instead of this default one)
Email.apk
Email.obex
Exchange.apk
Exchange.obex
FBReaderJ-release.apk
LatinIME.apk (needed if you didn't get another keyboard installed apart from the default one)
LatinIME.obex (needed if you didn't get another keyboard installed apart from the default one)
LauncherTests-release.apk (needed if you didn't get another launcher installed apart from the default one)
Mms.apk
Mms.odex
NeoReaderTests-release.apk
OnyxBootPicSetup-release.apk
OnyxData-release.apk
OnyxDict-release.apk
OnyxOtaService.apk
OnyxOtaService.odex
OnyxReaderDJVU-release.apk
OnyxReader-release.apk
OnyxScribbler-release.apk
OTAUpdateTest-release.apk
PinyinIME.apk (Chinese people need it)
PinyinIME.odex (Chinese people need it)
Reader-release.apk
StartupTutorial-release.apk

NOTE 01: OnyxLauncher-release.apk cannot be uninstalled because it controls the backlight brighteness (/sys/class/backlight/pwm-backlight.0/brightness) and navigation indicator light. OnyxLauncher-release.apk can be uninstalled on M96 if you previously install Lightning Launcher.

NOTE 02: whether you erase this apps (specially the OTA ones) you still can update your device easily through the recovery bootloader (with the reader off, if you press back and power at the same time you enter in recovery mode, then apply a "wipe data/factory reset" and afterwards "apply update from external storage, be patient because it takes time).

5. After deleting this apps you will need others, like Root Explorer or Ultimate Rotation Control or ezPDF (best pdf reader that combined with ColorDict can be very useful) or Lightning Web Browser or Puffin Web Browser or Kindle or Moon+ Reader (for ePub files) or aCalendar or Button Savoir or Assistive Zoom Pro or MyScript Stylus or Bass Booster Pro, etc..
