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.
highlights of ROM..
1. ext4 filesystem
2. ICS theme by Tarunagg
3. build.prop from Poseidon ROM by balqkarma
4. removed bloats
I have managed to complete ChippyROM_v1.0 for myself, if you want to try it, please feel free. This is not entirely my work. I have used various files from many developers as base and modified them to suite my taste. So this is not super duper space age ROM.. Just a simple lean and clean rom with descent reflexes to meet my purpose for I 9003. Custom wallpaper gallery and speed tweaks implemented. Its highly stripped down XXKPH Gingerbread ROM of 150 mb as compared to 345 mb of stock ROM. Link to Release is here ..ChippyROM_v1.0
I have made this ROM primarily from work/office profile point of view where i wanted to keep the distractions to the minimum. GUI required was sleek and responsive. So i have removed many default programs and modified few. I have used darker colors which demand less amount of power so that battery can last longer.I am attaching few screenshots here.Thanks to many SMAARRT_GEEK_ANGELS0x0 who relentlessly putting their efforts to make I9003 device worth using. Constructive suggestions to make this ROM better is always welcome.
