    Conquest is based on the ND8 stock ROM. ND8 is a Sprint ROM. The included carrier "fixes" merely add the correct access points for 3G/LTE service for Boost/Virgin Mobile as well as applying a cosmetic carrier label to the lock screen/notification panel.

    In short, it's a Sprint ROM but works fine for Boost and VM.

    CHANGELOG

    07/28/2014: 6.1
    • SYSTEM: Re-enabled lockscreen style selector in settings
    • SYSTEM: Enabled particle lockscreen style
    • SYSTEM: Enabled watercolor lockscreen style
    • SYSTEM: Tweaked battery/power save quick settings tile layout/behavior
    • SYSTEM: Tweaked Wi-Fi quick settings tile layout/behaviour
    • SYSTEM: Re-enabled lockscreen shortcuts for non-AOSP lockscreen styles
    • SYSTEM: Changed quick settings tile icons to match AOSP/CyanogenMod icons
    • SYSTEM: Enabled screen off+volume up flashlight in settings
    • SYSTEM: Replaced Wi-Fi Hotspot notification icon with icon from CyanogenMod
    --------------------------------------------------
    RELEASE NOTES: OK so a few of these probably need some clarification so I'll start with the lock screen shortcuts. Lockscreen shortcuts only work with the non-AOSP lockscreen styles. If you have a live wallpaper enabled on any style other than AOSP, the lock screen will revert to the un-styled circle lock screen.

    Next up we have the quick settings tiles. The tile will no longer show "power save on/power save off" under the percentage. If power saving is enabled, "power save" will now be displayed under the percentage, and hidden completely when power saving is disabled. I feel that this gives the power save/battery tile a cleaner overall look. The battery levels for the icon have also been adjusted to match AOSP.

    The Wi-Fi quick settings tile will no longer show "Wi-Fi ON/Wi-Fi OFF" under the SSID. When Wi-Fi is off, the tile will be labeled "WI-FI," and the icon will be in outline. When Wi-Fi is on but not connected to a network, it will be labeled "NOT CONNECTED," and the icon will be a dark, full Wi-Fi icon. When connected to a network, the SSID will be displayed below a light, full Wi-Fi icon.

    The flashlight option has been enabled in settings on the main page under the "DEVICE" heading. This functionality has only been tested the KT747 kernel included with Conquest. It may or may not work with other kernels depending on how they layout the device filesystem for the camera flash.

    The rest is just cosmetic tweaks and adjustments. As always, if you run into any bugs, please post them here.

    CHANGELOG

    07/28/2014: 6.3
    • SYSTEM: Removed Google captions from accessibility settings
    • SYSTEM: Removed Text-to-speech from accessibility settings (still available under Language and Input)
    • SYSTEM: Fixed Particle and Watercolor lock screen style settings not sticking after reboot
    • SYSTEM: Fixed battery icon levels for Battery quick settings tile
    • SYSTEM: Wi-Fi quick settings tile label tweaks
    • SYSTEM: New, cleaner boot animation (based on the old one)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    RELEASE NOTES: Another tweak to the WiFi tile text. This time to match the AOSP behavior. Wi-fi off shows "WI-FI OFF." Wi-fi on, not connected shows "WI-FI." Wi-fi on, connected shows the SSID.

    While working on the TTS and captions issue, I remembered that I had removed a few options from the settings app for the 6.1 release so the changelog for that release has been updated.

    Hope everybody likes the new boot animation. It's really not that much different from the old one, just less cluttered in my opinion, and also about half the file size of the original.

    Speaking of file sizes, the zip for this release is smaller overall because I managed to knock about 6MB out of the Settings app by nullifying (reducing size to 1px by 1px) a bunch of images that we don't use. Please if you notice anything off due to this, let me know (screenshot preferable).

    Not experiencing this and no reports of such from any other users thus far. My recommendation is a full wipe and reinstall of 6.0+6.3.

    Tw launcher has never been a part of this ROM. Also, there was no 5.3 release of Singularity.

    CHANGELOG

    08/04/2014: 7
    • SYSTEM: Added carrier name to mobile data quick settings tile when mobile data is on
    • SYSTEM: Added data type indicator to mobile data quick settings tile
    • SYSTEM: AOSP-style ring/silent/vibrate selector on power menu
    • SYSTEM: Added reboot to recovery option on power menu
    • SYSTEM: Linked battery icon percentage text color to battery charging bolt color
    • SYSTEM: Linked battery fill color to status bar text color
    • SYSTEM: Fixed Accessibility settings items force closing
    • SYSTEM: Removed Activate device from settings
    • SYSTEM: Removed motion settings from settings app
    • SYSTEM: Added Hidden menu/dialer code menu link to Developer options
    • SYSTEM: Enabled PRL write in ##DATA# menu
    • SYSTEM: Added theming support via Quantum Themer theme manager
    • SYSTEM: Integrated modified eri.xml into framework-res.apk for Boost and Virgin Mobile users
    • SYSTEM: Enabled several more lockscreen effects
    • SYSTEM: Restored stock TouchWiz sounds for lock screen effects
    • SYSTEM: Camera shortcut to AOSP lockscreen when "Camera" is selected from lockscreen shortcuts in settings app
    • APPS: Updated pre-installed/optional apps to most recent versions (as of 08/03/2014)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    RELEASE NOTES: There are currently two themes to choose from and you can see by the updated FAQs that I most likely won't be making any more myself. I encourage anybody that wants to make a theme to do so. If you submit it here, I will add it to the downloads section. And yes, I finally caved and added a reboot to recovery option to the power menu. There may be other tweaks and changes that I forgot about in the interim. This was originally going to be an update-only release to version 6.4 but due to the number of changes, I decided to release it as a completely new version. However, the changes aren't complex enough to require a complete re-install so there will be an update and a full release ZIP. If you're on 6.3, you should have no problems flashing the update ZIP to bring you to version 7.

    Special thanks again to bob-st, Madbat, roirraW "edor" ehT, and wetbiker7 for testing this release for me and helping make sure it's as rock solid as possible. As always, there may be bugs present that we didn't see so please post here if you encounter any problems.

    Extract the QRT file from the zip file. Place it on your internal storage.

    BTW, the orange theme is super ugly.

    Nah. I like it. It did make my system lag a bit at the beginning but after a reboot it runs smoothly again.

    Moon is correct. The orange theme is really ugly unless you are a Florida fan :)

    Ugly, ugly theme. But not as ugly in the upcoming release as it was in the initial release I guess.

    Anyone know of a way to make the system settings background flat black instead of having a gradient?

    I seem to recall there being an xposed module for that very purpose.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=45442947&postcount=654

    Otherwise, decompile framework-res.apk and edit the styles.xml to suit. You could also decompile SecSettings.apk and edit it's styles.xml if you only want it to apply to the settings app.

    Hey, any possibility of adding in the CM lockscreen, with 4x4, 5x5, 6x6 etc grid instead of just default 3x3? I've tried installing the Xposed module, and it just crashes preventing me from unlocking my phone.

    Not a chance. However, feel free to implement it yourself if you'd like to.
