    It's been a while coming, because Actngrezy has been working so hard to add new features (some of which he worked with Liquid on) -- and Actngrezy has also been working with Pete to help Pete learn to build from source.

    But here it is, Project Elite v.3. [ROM RELEASE] P.E. v3 (Built from source 2.2.1 frg83) - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    zipaling_apks - zipaligns all apks. if framework is not zipaligned then run this script while in recovery using adb

    Notes - the user interface tweaks if you check battery percentage, it will overlay another percentage on top of the one there. this is because I used images with a percentage in them so if battery images are switch to any without percentage you can still enable a percentage.
    - Still need to fix the save theme portion of the backup and restore theme in elite options"

    You could download it on your Droid -- I've done that using Dolphin HD a bunch of times.

    That's how I do it I still don't understand why people download it off computer and then transfer it. It takes 5 min

    Sometimes I download on the computer, and place it in dropbox (cloud service) in order to have it stored/sync'd to various locations (though this would also include my go-to kernels).

    Either works, depending on what I'm doing.

    There is a patch that stops random reboots. The issue is when unloacking in landscape mode with using regular lockscreen would cause reboots. I forgot to code an xml file. The patch is at droid forums ill post a link here when I get to my comp

    Edit: http://projectelite.davekover.com/Final/bootloopfix.zip

    Run right after installing rom and all will be good

    I'm liking this ROM so far, coming from LFY, its similar in a lot of ways (Love the Elite Options like the Liquid Tweaks for LFY).

    Quick things I'd like to note, maybe there's a workaround or something I'm not doing right:
    - Android Onscreen Keyboard Dictionary: Dictionary doesn't auto-suggest other than from what looks like my contacts
    - Wallpaper Gallery FC's: Go into Wallpaper Gallery and it shows two blank "Plus" wallpapers, click on one and FC. (This problem I've had on other ROMs as well, LFY and I think BB too)

    Concerning the Wallpaper issue, I do believe those rom designers put their own custom wallpapers into the gallery section of the phone, not "wallapaper." Look there and you might find a folder called "Liquid's Wallpapers" or whatever.

    I went from LFY and have tried both PE v1 & v2 and although I loved the stock feel of this ROM the auto suggest while I am typing messages or emails is a must have feature. Please (if it's not too hard) put it in this ROM and I'd love to give PE another whirl.

    They're on the sd card, under "Elite Papers." There are custom Launcher Pro docks on the sd card, as well.
