    thats weird, i wonder whats causing that. can you make sure you have the lgHiddenMenu.apk in your phone and that you did not remove it?

    i really dont know, Internet Data enabled is the only one i can tell that does something when enabled or disabled (data wise)

    Not really necessary but still pretty cool. If you could add the animation/picture that pops up when you continually tap on "Android Version".

    Thats from a different phone, isnt it. that activity would be hard to implement (by me) as i only managed to link settings.apk to other apks

    how would this fit in the >>Tools<< section? :D

    How about linking it up to ROM toolbox? That's beneficial tool as it's an AIO. :p

    Lol







    True, but why go through 3 touches (menu, settings, romtoolbox) when you can access it by simply touching it once (assuming its on your desktop)

    The same goes for ROM manager, but it somehow worked its way into the settings (blame fuzzy).

    By allowing it to stay there is my way of paying tribute to our fuzzter :D

    Linking it to ROM toolbox is touchy. I originally had it linked but you can only link it to either the free or paid version. You can't link the free, buy the paid, and it automatically change. The links are different. Which is why i chose ROM manager. Most Everyone uses it and it's free. :D

    The first test run i did of this new style of settings was a Jelly bean type. It had an accounts section that the accounts on the phone; Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc..and a spot for "Add Account" which this thus eliminated the the tab we already have for accounts.

    I didn't like it, found it pointless so I started over.

    Because it has to be flashed. Some system apps cant be installed by simply placing them in the apps folder and rebooting.

    My advice? Just reinstall your ROM. ;)

    What do you mean? Just flash your ROM. You don't lose anything. Just don't wipe data.
