I think this is done. so moving it from WIP to Release
This ROM is just a compilation of work by many developers. I do not take any credit of development. I have just collected and compiled different parts of roms. Also modded few apks and deleted many... This ROM is compiled to suite my taste and purpose. Planning to share as like minded may find it useful.
This rom do not include sync apps for google(contact&calendar) or samsung to keep internet usage to minimum. I use email.apk to configure all my mail accounts.

-Flashed Stock XXKPQ ROM
-Flashed universal CFROOT by Amit and UC7 kernel by Doomlord
-copied ChippyROM.V2.XXKPQ.zip to SDCARD
-using CWM recovery installed zip file
-last image is the bootlogo that i made. You can download from here.
To install, you need to place this image in the folder /mnt/.lfs/ as logo.jpg with RootExplorer or any other root file manager
Apart from apps included in ROM I recommend following apps
1. Root Explorer(absolutely essential)
2. Quickpic (better than stock viewer)
3. OperaMini(faster browser)
4. Moboplayer(excellent video player)
5. HaxorScreenFilter (control brightness)
6. SMSBackup (backup SMS to your gmail account)
This rom includes work by Tarunagg, blaqkarma, trip007in, vivek and fuss123.
Obviously works by doomlord, and amit and many more developers from xda-developers.com were essential ingredients.
Rom flashing is always risky. Flash only if you are ready to take that risk. I will not be responsible for any direct or indirect damages caused.
