Select the modules tab on the right, tick all boxes and then reboot

Hey Tillaz you think you can post the other non stripped rom with Gapps in this thread too with? I also tried this stripped rom but I found that Location via wifi does not work :-(

Also the CRT TV screen animation seems slightly broken, after the tv anaimation occurs it stutters a bit, the black background closing a tiny bit after the animation has finished.

Sweet! Much appreciated. Oh yes also there was some funny white lines across the top of the screen when I installed. Was mainly in gallery when loading pics. Are you going to post the tweak pack separately with the animation and other bits like last time?

Thanks for the update. Everything working well, even gps seems great so far, but as others have found with this phone, gps success is usually short term, so will see how it is tomorrow.

Any chance you could move the long press for recent apps onto the home button instead of the menu button? (or make it optional). This would allow us to use the Nova option of a long press on the menu button for search or whatever.

I have noticed that sometimes the recent apps appear for a second, then disappear, leaving me with a black screen. I have had this since I got the phone. I think it mostly happens if the long press is held for too long.

Will try this rom when i get in, what settings are you using for gps? Is a-gps and EPO assistance enabled? I have this exact same issue with long press

By the Way tillaz the system tweaks application that you link to in settings crashes if you already didn't know. I can do a logcat if you want later

Works for me. Tried the boot animation and soft keys tweaks, and both worked (although the on and off options in the soft keys do the opposite, and the onscreen soft keys are in reverse order from the hard keys )

i will correct the on / off button for softkeys,

but the order they are in is the stock AOSP way, its the vowney that has a different button layout for the hard keys,

i will make a modified SystemUI as an add on to change the layout for soft keys.

also will probably do all the updates threw the OTA now ;)

lastly, could someone post a screenshot of the main settings menu on the new version please :)

yeah, i left out init.d scripts, But i will probably add a part in my System Tweaks app to apply various scripts in the future with lots more tweaks.

as for Ceco's module, i would think its just using the "Holo.Light.DarkActionBar" theme and to change this all you would do is edit the AndroidManifest.xml

Change

android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Holo.Light.DarkActionBar"
To
android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Holo"

are you sure? i just looked and he is using

android:theme="@style/AppTheme"
which points to the Holo.Light theme when looking at the styles.xml just change the above From
android:theme="@style/AppTheme"
To
android:theme="@style/Theme.Holo"

or just remove "android:theme="@style/AppTheme" and it will use the device default (which is the Holo theme)

Oh right must have missed it. Also would it be worth adding this http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2251952 (allows support for theme chooser themes in AOSP)

Edit: Also i was thinking of making a ROM based on your repack if it's ok with you or i could try and create some things for your ROM ?

sure, what ever you feel like doing, both are fine with me ;)

about the x-theme engine, is a great app but the only problem is it does not support redirecting of styles.xml which is big part of theme chooser themes,

without this the more complex themes don't really work well, but i'm hoping this is some how resolved as i can actually add support to my currant themes so they work with both the theme engine & the x-theme engine :)
