NOTE: My other mod, MultiWindow Complete Control is included in this mod, you only have to install the application.
You may be asking yourself now, what the heck is this all about?
Well, let me tell you. Simplistic Framework is a compilation of framework mods and hacks for Samsung based ROMs, with each mod FULLY costumizable through a control app (like AOKP).
That being said, most of the mods are coded from scratch by me.
This will literally turn your stock ROM into a very powerful ROM, packing many of the mods you all like, and ones you'll get to like
Who is this aimed at:
Everybody owning an N7100, on a custom ROM or stock one.
For ROM cooks look at the F.A.Q
Is this free?/How can I get the control app?
Yes and No, some of the mods are pre-enabled for you.
Other mods need the donation control app to enable/control.
NOTE: All people who donated to my previous project Multi Window Complete Control will receive this for free!
NOTE2: The Multi Window Complete Control was supposed to be a part of this framework, and only be in the donation version, But I left it out as FULL free and posted it for a bunch of devices, so make sure to check that as well.
Enough chitchat for now! It's time for me to convince you, here we go:

The apks can work on any Simplistic Framework starting from V3, and this allows to create something I like to call a "Battery Library" where someone can post a thread full of these batteries

Q: I'm a developer. Can I integrate this framework into my ROM/Theme? A: Of course, only you have to not include the control app.
Q: I'm having conflicts/fcs because of the custom rom/mod I'm using. A: Most probably this is caused by lidroid's toggles, to fix that just delete lidroid-res.apk from /system/framework and reboot.
Important Note: My GCEs (British exams which are very important) are about to start, and I'll have to give them my all, so I won't add any new features, or work for any other device until they are finished. However, if new firmwares come out, I'll try my best to update as fast as possible.
sorry but as a donated user, where can i get the latest v2.6.1 app? coz there's no mail since the initial release of the control app...
