There are no truly ICS themed ROMs for our phones as they're all themed by either the carrier or Samsung. That's why we have to debloat and re-theme them afterwards with Vertimus,etc., to undo all the carriers crap. I'm sure this too, will be coming shortly.

Thanks for all your hard work and lack of sleep, Shoman!

Is there a way you could include the program manager widget? And possibly a gb style keyboard? The Samsung drives me crazy haha

Is this ROM hardened against ads?

Just installed/got up and running. No snags on install after full wipe coming from ICScrewD. After first boot wouldn't see my MicroCell - airplane mode toggle usually fixes this, didn't this time. Reboot resolved it however, so all good there.

Taking a chance reinstalling missing user apps with data from TiBu...will see how it goes.

At any rate, VERY NICE ROM! Thank You!

Edit: Really like the 6 bar signal icon. Also like that you didn't include Swype as a system keyboard, makes updating from SwypeBeta much easier. Looking forward to your updates!

I only get it when I click email since I don't have it installed. Weird.

Ok, I think it's just the email.apk I put in. It's FCing and that must be making social hub FC too. Otherwise I don't have any real issues. Good work

Usually let the market install then restore the data for the apps.

Yea not included. I wonder if the APK from GB will work.

Native screen shot worked for me just now... have to hold vol down and power for about .3 - .5 seconds...
