Now that's nice. How would one accomplish this? I'm hoping to get it setup so it's nice and fast but also have a good stock backup to reflash with Odin if I end up bricking it.

To be honest, the GPU scores were pure luck. Sometimes it runs like a freight train, other times it doesn't. The rest is a tweaked kernel, minfrees set to "Optimum" and Greenify kicked in (Greenify is a must for low-RAM ICS devices.)

Yeah, I found Greenify and Seeder when I got my VL-107 walmart special. But it does seem to help.
This Reverb does seem to run pretty smooth, mainly I just want to be able to flash it as close to original state as I can if I manage to total it like I did my 2 Devours and my Illusion.

I setup Greenify on the kids D2 tablet that has 300 and some odd mbs of ram and running ICS..... what a difference! It went from taking 5 seconds to open the app drawer to only a fraction of a second! Definitely a must have ;D
With the donate version you get the Xposed engine integration :D

I successfully partitioned my sd card to fat32 and ext2, thus allowing me to install more apps to the phone and the sd card. I used the minitool partition software, xp/Vista /7/8 compatible. Now I can use link2sd and it seems to be working very well so far.
 Those with low internal memory and nice big sd cards might give it a go. Word of advice though, this will wipe the sd card, so make a backup of any important files. I found the Minitool for free on cnet, so a Google search should do. Just follow the instructions at the link to the t, stock & custom roms should work fine. Now install and enjoy bunches of apps without the low internal memory issues. Custom Rom's have separate instructions at the bottom of the page in the link.

http://www.noypigeeks.com/android/tutorial-a-guide-to-link2sd/

I have tested this on my Galaxy Reverb and it Does Work, I have not noticed any issues yet.  Though some apps may not work with it, I have found none. :)

I take no credit for this guide, nor am I responsible for damaged sd cards, as I did not create it and can not fix corruption.
I'm sure if instructions aren't followed, you could possibly corrupt your sd card. So please please read and re-read the guide before attempting this.

Also after you create your first fat32 partition / the bigger one, do not try to re-partition it to make the second partition. You will see a blank/unnamed column with smaller storage just below the new partition, this is to be your second partition/ ext2 or ext4 depending on your Rom. This smaller one is where the link2sd will put your apps+data+libraries. The bigger one is what will be left for average storage / music, pics, videos and other files.

Hope you enjoy.

This will add CWM to your stock Reverb. Flash in PDA section in Odin.

should work fine on the phone test it out and let me know, if it works then you can make a nandroid backup of the device

Cool news, I will get right on it when the phone is charged, though i'm not sure how to make the nandroid backup. Also will I need a .pit file or do I just flash the cwm by its self in the PDA slot?

I started doing a bit more homework on flashing the cwm and stumbled upon this,

 http://androidforums.com/reverb-all-things-root/673189-cant-access-cwm-recovery-mode-reverb.html

My questions are: do you think we/I can get the flash done and not have this issue? If that does happen, would it be fixable?

Honestly if I brick this one, my wife will kill me. Lol :) But I'm more than willing to give it a go if, in your opinion its safe.
Phone is charged and ready.

Ok so I decided to let'em hang and give it a go. No need for a .pit file. Cwm install was successful, now making a backup to external sd. Will post results soon.

Backup successful, reboot successful, backup is in cwm file.
What's next?
Would it be safe to somewhat modify some of the the files within the backup using Nandroid manager or another app of the like.

now that you have one backup, do a factory reset go in and make a backup of the stock system. and zip it and upload it somewhere and i will make a rom for it,  then all you have to do is restore the first backup and your phone will be back to where it was.

Ok backup of stock is complete, I tried to do a restore after that and it says md5 mismatch. What do I do now?

Edit: fixed with the help of area chat. Thanks guys.:):):):)

Had to flash cwm test 8 from prior link, tried to restore from a fresh backup, got md5 mismatch, just renamed the file without spaces. Tried the restore again and it worked. Then downloaded the cwm touch, which is very nice and easy to read btw, then boot into recovery and install cwmtouch.zip from sd. Rebooted into recovery again and did a fresh stock backup to sd, then did the recovery from the new backup, it  went just fine, all system and user apps installed.

Uploading stock recovery to Google drive, will post a link, not sure how soon though, my net is slow.

Rooted Stock recovery.7zip:

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B6BVKFcDM8uKbk4zdlFoWHRXV2c/edit?usp=drive_web

I will leave this file in drive for public download. I'm sure someone will need it at some point.

  Here is a picture of cwm touch. Its not the best quality pic and its side ways lol, sorry for that. Though it doesn't look it in the photo, it is easy to read and the touch works well.

Update:

I recently received an OTA update to JellyBean for the Reverb. I was told not to do the OTA, because I have CWM installed and could brick; so I started looking for the update in a zip format, I found it and made a fresh backup before I installed it. I then re-flashed CWM test 8 to remove the touch cwm, then installed the JB.zip, booted, and made a new backup with JB installed. Then found zip files of busybox, and chains supersu, booted into recovery and installed both, then rebooted and made a new recovery with root privileges installed :), renamed to JbWithUpdates then tried restoring from that backup, all was successful, and I'm still rooted.
Jb update added: Google Now and facial lock amongst other features.
Hooray for JellyBean, and good bye to ICS.  :):):):):):):):):):):)

If files are need, post here or pm me and I'll get them linked.

Note; I do not take credit for any of the compiled files or work, nor am I responsible for damaged devices. I'm only responsible for writing the above basic guide.
That said, I have tested on my own device an can confirm working.
