I HATE SMALI!

Note - About Killah_Bean.BuildRC4
This rom is deodexed so first boot will take a while, dont get scared, Touch the screen and navigate throughout the phone at first boot for touch recognition, also when it boots it will restart again to add root support.This rom was built with Android Kitchen 0.218, Deodexed, Zipaligned & Scripted with Android Kitchen 0.218. Overall this rom is for speed and stability, and to show off to your friends that the admire has ICS. Many hours of hard work was spent into this rom, so if you love it hit the thank you button or if you have a issue pm me for a faster response! I do not accept donations (of funds), but if its the case of hardware, I will except that. The original theme is themed to look like samsung released a OTA ICS Upadate for the Samsung Admire (Until metro adds there crap).

Why does it say RC4?
Answer : RC means "Release Candidate" Build may not be the final version, but a variant that has no fatal flaws or bugs, on the stabilization stages to become the final product that is the Stable variant.
Did you change anything besides the kernel & file system?
Answer : Yes I did. I changed and fix major issues which was a problem in previous builds.
Did you update the stock theme or any of the themes?
Answer : No, don't really see the sense of updating the theme. The theme is already up-to-date.
Did you fix the camera button?
Answer : Unfortunately, No. I seriously don't know whats up with that button. Pressing the button is supposed to launch the camera app but instead doesn't. Still looking into it though.
Why did you switch to RFS file system?
Answer : RFS file system is extremely slow and problematic and doesn't open more.
While EXT4 gives a lot more than you think.
New Build! [EXT 4]
Old Build! [RFS]
