The only thing I did was modify the line so that the zip would be willing to flash to the toroplus. It does not have CMDA/LTE connection, but it does flash and work on WIFI just fine. With it's limited uses ATM, I believe that getting working radios would be useless, and I only have a Verizon toro (though I know for a fact that this boots). Try it and see what I mean. Do not wipe system, or it will not boot.

Screenshot was on my Verizon galaxy Nexus, this build is for the SPRINT VERSION ONLY!

Questions?
A link to my original post and thank the original poster thingy would be nice, since I was the guy testing it and all...

Wow. That was pretty slick. Kinda difficult to get used to the gesture based ui. Its really snappy even though its still got its bugs.

I can't wait until the full release and support for CDMA networks.

And the sidebar dock like Ubuntu os is really nice too.

Definitely something different which is good. And even without cell connection, I like it better than iOS. HA


And coming from the Epic Touch, a 500mb ROM didnt even hit me as being huge. Most touchwiz ROMs are close to that size.

Wait wut?? Not sure what you mean but it worked alright. Only problems I noticed were that I couldn't install the apps listed under " available downloads", and I definitely still need cell service.

Either way, restoring was absolutely painless, so I don't know what toity mean by broken...
