How does this came to be:
Some users reported that they really like the Experiment ROMs because of it's fast swift performance. But other users go to the Megalites because of one obvious downside of the Experiment ROMs; some Samsung Apps will not work (for the reason that the rom is so stripped,some dependenciess are not present to make the apps run).
So here is the answer to all Megalite-Experiment ROM lovers out there: MEGA-lit-Ex Series:
I believe this is the most stripped custom ROM in the B7610 community. This ROM has been a result of some sleepless nights of experimenting and research, so please don't try to reverse engineer it
Since this will be a series of ROMs, specs will vary (because of builds, pagepool value, tweaks etc.), though generally the MEGA-lit-Ex ROMs will offer:
- 300-400Mb free ROM storage/ 90 to 100Mb+ available RAM
- the speed of Experiment ROM series
- Samsung Apps will now work (via new cabs provided)
- Some Samsung Apps can now be installed in other storages (My Storage/Storage Card)
- Some defaut Windows Mobile apps can now be installed in other storages (My Storage/Storage Card)
- first boot Customization with XDA UC
- And many others
Exciting isn't it
Currently these are the removed applications and are now available in cab form (note that those with * can NOW be installed in My Storage/Storage Card)

HELP OTHER USERS CUSTOMIZE THEIR DEVICE BY USING XDA UC
Since this is obviously a stripped-naked ROM, help other users customize their device by suggesting set of applications that will be installed via XDA UC. You can post your suggested app list in this thread and post some screenshots too. Be creative and show off your device' installed themes and apps c/o XDA UC
XDA UC in the MEGA-lit-EX series is set to run at first boot,so customizing your device has never been so easy: Just drop down your favorite apps, themes, tweaks files etc. in your XDA UC folder and flash MEGA-lit-EX!(please see additional instructions on how to use XDA UC) .
HELP ME IN ENHANCING THE ROM, NOT REPRODUCING IT
Actually this series has been in development since the my first Experiment ROM was introduced here (yeah months ago ), so if anyone has the plan of reverse engineering the MEGA-lit-EX ROM and the new Samsung/WM Apps cabs available and rebrand it to a new custom ROM under your name, Go Ahead In reality, I have no power to stop anyone from doing that, because the ROMs I produce here are free for everyone to download, use and keep. But I know if you have the conscience to realize that this was a result of some huge amount of effort, research and time, you won't be doing that, ei'?
Instead help me in enhancing the ROM by suggesting helpful things or in developing the storage-installable Samsung/WM cabs (those that cannot be installed in other storage like Touch Player)
Are You Ready?
MEGA-lit-EX ROMs are available in the 2nd Post. Enjoy!!!!
