    Metropolis Rom 1.5.0

    Screenshots will be posted here :)

    Downloads are in #3 Addons/Themes will be in post 2 :)


    Download rom (derp)
    copy to your phone (internal or external sdcard)
    Boot into recovery (power + vol up + home til you see blue text in teh top left corner)
    TWRP go into the wipe menu and choose factory reset (no matter what rom you are coming from)
    CWM choose wipe data/factory reset on the main menu
    Flash the rom normally


    Rebased on NA1
    Knox free
    Should have gotten most if not all the bloat, lemme know if i missed any.
    Got something special now, check out post #2

    Previous versions:
    Based on MF2
    Removed some bloat (mostly annoying metro apps)
    Bootanimation support
    updated supersu to 1.41 and busybox to 1.20.2
    Youtube HD inverted
    Fresh slate starting from MD3 premium suite upgrade
    Added Arocker's 4 way reboot mod
    Added Note 2 camera/gallery
    Added the public beta of the wallpaper app, it needs more wallpapers (original submissions only people i can google myself :p ) and a proper name, as it isnt really my wallpapers :p
    Added Multiview support (thanks to gruesomewolf, edgeez25, and Arocker)
    Changed sh to bash for a better shell experience
    Removed the custom bootanimation and sound i spent hours working on because people couldnt figure out how to remove it and/or swap it out themselves. get used to see this flashing android logo as its obviously not worth my effort to try to make my rom custom.

    Rebased on MB2 (4.1.2 official)
    Pop up browser added
    Bootanimation support
    Init.d Support
    Custom bootsound

    fresh start based off leaked LL1 rom (4.1.2)

    Custom power on song
    Custom bootanimation
    Bootanimations are done properly so should fix dual core bug, hopefully...

    Actual bootsplash screen custom made by myself
    Fixed updater script so its a bit smarter
    Note II popup browser
    Fixed gallery flickers

    added init.d support
    insecured kernel (adb runs as root)
    boot animation support


    Based off leaked MetroPCS jellybean build

    0.0.5 Public release

    0.0.1 Initial version
    baseline rom

    Some of you may notice there is some additional ring tones as of 1.5.0, I got some cool people on reddit to create some for the use of my custom roms :).

    JimeCide made the following ringtones:

    Latest version:

    Going with a new way to report bugs:

    ive provided a sample bug report for everyone to see and kind of follow. hopefully people can see something like wifi tether is busted and comment on the bug saying yup me2! instead of having 16 threads of it up. this will help myself and people who wished to help answer questions/issues :)

    Yes it's best if you get an sd card and store all your backups in there

    no the system wipe isnt the internal memory format ya confusing those lol so dont worry not going to delete any personal data. i still have things in my internal from the first day i got my gs3 so dont worry about erasing anything else.

    I believe the installer script needs to be updated. As nasty stated, shabby needs to update.
