    Hello. I just changed my keyboard back. I wasn't a big fan of swype, so this is what I did. 1) make a backup in cwm, 2) copied the LatinIME.apk from removed apks to my sd card, 3) Fired up ES file explorer (make sure all boxes are checked in root settings of explorer), 4) go to system/app and long press on swype.apk and delete, 5) go to sdcard and copy the LatinIME.apk you put there earlier from removed apks 6) go to system/apps and paste the LatinIME.apk, 7) exit out of explorer and reboot phone. The new keyboard should be there. This worked for me. Hope this helps.:)

    Ok, since it seems like a few people are having issues with adding missing files, I thought I would be a little pro-active and write instructions on how I do it. This may not be the preferred way but it works for me.

    1. Look on you sdcard for a file called App_Manager

    2. Open up App_Manager. There you will find a file called App_Backups

    3. Open App_Backups. There you will find files:

    app_data
    backup_info
    misc_backup
    system_apps
    user_apps

    4. Open system_apps. There you will find all the normal .apks that were part of the original ROM you were on.

    5. Long press the file you are in need of. Choose copy NOT MOVE. If you move the file then you will not have it if you need it.

    Next part: Please do at you at your own risk as if you move the wrong file or paste it in the wrong location you can mess up your phone.

    6. Make sure you have a root access file manager. The ROM does come with ES File Explore which does give root access (thanks Lotta and Slayer72 for setting me straight).

    7. With root access go to /system. This can be found in the main file system of phone NOT your sdcard.

    8. Open [COLOR=Red]/system[/COLOR] and find [COLOR=Red]apps.[/COLOR] The title bar at top should say [COLOR=Red]/system/apps.

    [COLOR=Black]9. Paste the app you selected.

    10. Reboot. The file you selected will automatically reinstall itself.

    This will work on most apps that are moved to that location. I have only found a handful that don't want to play nice.

    If you need any help, please feel free to pm me or respond.

    I checked my sdcard and I can't find the file App_Manager anywhere on it. Is this something that should be there? Just curious. I had to go a different route because that file is not present on my card. A side note, what an awesome rom. You guys did an amazing job. Thanks.

    I have helped several individuals using this same method. Even though I am on Sprint and most TU users are on Boost, I believe that file should be on your sdcard. You are the first to state not having it.

    But chev and mav have put the removed .apk list up, so it will work that way as well.

    lol... It may explode because the ROM is just that awesome but your phone worked without before so it should continue to work.

    I'll switch to a different and more stable browser in the next version. Just wanted to test out chrome to see how it was.

    I've tested every browser on several different devices (SGtab 10.1 wifi, SGPrevail, Transform Ultra, S Infuse) and I have found that the most stable and fastest is the android browser. Second to that is Dolphin.. Trust me on that I have done Hours of testing on this subject with all of those devices..

    Speed/stable - Android Browser, hands down
    features/stable - Dolphin (works quite nice on the TU)

    Please do your own testing and post results here so we can maybe take a pole on what you guys like.. Hopefully we can get some good test results and not just get a bunch of random opinions

    Alright, it isn't that big of a deal seeing as how I hardly ever use it, but I can no longer tether my laptop to my TU.

    EPIC PROPS ON MEGATRON BTW. Fastest, smoothest, most responsive, and most efficient rom I have ever installed. You have set the standard Chev & Mav. Gratz! and a bazillion thanks.

    Where was I? Oh yeah, Tethering. I have tried everything. FoxFi is unavailable. I've tried pretty much every other free wifi tether app on Play and still nothing. Any suggestions?
