Are you referring to TW launcher tweaks?

Thanks!
If you know how to modify the apk its in values-sw360dp-xhdpi/dimens.xml or integers.xml. Theres guides on these forums for how to do it. Edit first result from a google search.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1990801

If you're going 5x6 you may need to find one that size to get your dimensions to look right. Thats the trickier part of it.

Also remember those apks won't work but this is a guide of how its done.

No but once I update my ROM and theme to the latest S3Rx base my theme will be pulled for him to add to the aroma.

After using both kernels (KT747 and stock 3.4.0-1514807) I have some comparison notes on their behavior. I wouldn't say these are totally objective but same apps and data, relatively little else changed:

KT747:
- higher battery usage without tuning
- comparable battery life after using ktoonservative governor, lowering min clock speed
- choppier UI and app performance
- Bluetooth media connection drops out periodically every few minutes

I should have taken a screen shot of the battery usage, but essentially I got 7-8 hours of moderate use on wifi and phone would run a little hot. Not great. Didn't see any abnormal process behavior in System Tuner, possibly a wireless issue. (bluetooth?)

Stock kernel:
- decent battery life even with relatively heavy usage and background network activity
- stable bluetooth connections (so far)



At least in my case, it's clear I should stick to the stock kernel.

OK so I'm going to take a stab at building a kernel. I've never build one from source yet so it will take some time. But I'm hoping to least build a stock kernel with a better toolchain and separate WiFi modules. Hopefully that will give everyone working WiFi.

You won't have to because it will work on the t999 too so I'm sure someone will test if your wanting to update.

In that case I'm upgrading tonight and trying out your latest release until I update my ROM.

Okay, so where is the settings.db file I need to edit to remove the Smart Network switch that you mention in the changelog? I've done a search of my entire phone in ES File Explorer with no luck.

Also, is the "volume up" torch function built into the ROM or do we need the xposed module to do it?

Thanks for another winner!

Do you know if Vpn works with stock kernel in this rom?

Can anyone help me to verify? I'm on likewise and it doesn't work.

Is there any way to remove the popup message when enabling the wifi tethering that tells you enabling wifi tether disables wifi? I can't stand it!
