    Working on that n carrier banner atm.

    My usual bag of tricks, plus borrowed ideas from mt and added cmscreenshots, used the Black Chrome theme Shiny ported over. When I post the ROM it will have my normal OP layout with description etc etc. ;)

    Yea its in the title lol 'Plagued'!!! ;)

    Well, provided its coming with the black chrome theme you should've called it "Black Plague" Rom like someone suggested on another thread :D

    I think you can apply the stock theme by aplus, cause when I was on GSE2 I flashed it and it looked stocked.
