    Of course, you should look close at the Android version and Mod version... ;-)

    "FEATURES" (TRICKS)

    ================================================== =======
    Open up the Browser, and type in "about:debug" (minus the quotes of course)
    This will enable debug settings and the Java Console.

    ================================================== =======

    Goto Settings -> About Phone, and click repeatedly on Android version and
    Mod version. You will see what happens. :-D
    ================================================== =======





    This is one massive update to my ROM. I have personally themed damn near every image in it. A LOT of help came from Sonny Sekhon, author of the ICS theme for T-Mobile Theme Engine. Many thanks to him for getting me started on this!


    Changelog: (ITS A BIG ONE!)

    3.0
    Updated system base to Android 2.3.7 - CM 7.2.0-RC0
    Updated to ChevyNo1's 1.0GHz MV kernel

    Updated Busybox to 1.19.3

    Includes fixed Torch app (themed to match ROM)
    Now theme is based on ICS with personal changes
    Themed all GAPPS as well

    Optimized all system sounds for 2MB space savings
    Included all system sounds from the Nexus S ICS dump
    Reverted back to Music 2.3.7 instead of 3.x for speed
    Fixed data copy error in updater-script
    Fixed default system battery capacity to 1390 for the BP6X battery
    Made ICS Roboto font the default

    Added ability to completely disable the lockscreen

    Persistent ADB notification is off by default

    List of easily removable apps:
    Calculator
    Calendar
    Email
    File Manager
    Live Wallpapers
    Magic Smoke Wallpapers
    Music
    Search
    Theme Manager
    Visualization Wallpapers
    Voice Dialer


    Recommendations:
    Wipe EVERYTHING before installing, or you WILL have problems.

    Give the ROM time to run, before judging it. It will be slow to start, but speed will increase as things settle in. Wont take long, maybe a few minutes!

    As for the Market, you need to sign into your Google account FIRST, and then the icon will appear.

    I haven't heard of anyone here trying out this rom yet. Nobody probably wants to go back to froyo im guessing. Just wondering if anyone has checked it out.

    I saw a pretty good video review here

    It seems like you get liquid performance but with froyo battery life.... Still its is always nice to have more branches on our CM family tree -AT

    I am running Liberty 3 currently but I ran Steel Droid X 3.0 (beta) for several weeks. I enjoyed it very much, and it performed well. Battery life was better than other ROMS I have installed however average benchmarks (using Quadrant Standard) were higher than most.

    This ROM is highly customizable and installs in a very minimal state. The install is a little tricky to avoid having the ROM bring up CWM recovery each time, but I'm sure the Dev included the instructions.

    The radios seemed to be better than some of the 2nd init ROMs I've installed, and being based on CM7 it was a pretty quick matter of finding out how to address some of the small issues I encountered.

    I still have a backup of it on my SD card, and I can sbf back to Froyo and restore it if anyone needs any specific information. I enjoyed the ROM very much and appreciate the work that went into it. Once I got it running the way I wanted it, it was and remains my favorite Froyo based ROM.
