    I just wanna take a moment to say thank you to Kenharkey, he has really brought some sudden life right up into this phone. Using Phenom's roms as a base, you write up guides and all sorts of roms out of nowhere and now even have us noobs making roms. That's amazing dude, you're definitely a developer worth worshipping. If I knew you in person, I'd definitely buy you lunch, no homo lol. :p

    I had this phone years ago when it first came out. Watched it sprout it's wings and lose its virginity to CWM. At first it said no... With persuasion and some beer it finally gave, and hence Sleipnir was born, harmonia, tagged, ics elite, all of them. I used all of them. And never got a chance to try the real ics, much less jb since I upgraded to an Evo 3D, and then to an Optimus F3. But I have still watched the forum every day since I left the phone, because it was my first Android, with my own money I paid for it too.

    I just say this as a thanks, and tell my story, I can't believe how far this phone has come, it's literally a miracle, because I remember watching everyone struggle just trying to get recovery, and I actually helped with that because it kept over writing our custom one due to a file.... Anyways!!!! Enough of my chatter box mouth. :D

    Thank you Ken. You're an inspiration man, you have given so much to this community, and I know you're in a rough spot in life, I figured you needed some nice words said, to make your day. Hope every thing works out for you dude. :)

    This will just be a post for anyone to thank anyone they would like. It's been a long time coming and it's all worth the hard work. :)

    I also want to thank phenom and ken for breathing new life into this phone and staying on top of it with updates and such, without them, I would still be using limited and boring GB ROMs. Their work is greatly appreciated by me and all other Elite users who are rooted and future users to come :D

    I agree, I am totally noob to this, just got the cell for 10 bucks and dont even have a data plan on it, prob wont, just using it to play games etc and using groove IP via wifi to text and make free calls.

    I only flashed the AOKP, so I cant comment on anything else, but that ROM works great.

    Thanks Ken

    Yes, I realize that now, got the names mixed up ;)

    I wish I wasn't so lazy and try out a few other ROMS though.
