Default China LiteRemix ZCLC2 v4 (Wave 1) based on Nexus / Hero355 (11/02/2012)

"Imitation is the sincerest of flattery."
Charles Caleb Colton (1780 - 1832)

Everything you need to start is included in the main archive. Use the v3.99 edition if you don't want the new icons and quickpanel. Bonus stuff such as ringtones, wallpapers, application/widget installs, boot animations and boot images are included in the extended bonus package.
If you want Java apps in main menu check the MenuCFG folder (in extras) before full flashing!
Big thanks to Nexus and Hero355 for their great work that this is based on!


A customizable CFW:
The Lite Remix is the most customizable CFW available for the GT-S8500. Customizable means: easily customizable by you. Once you did the basic install of the Lite Remix, you may choose which apps are installed, which apps show up in the main menu, how much app memory you have free, which lockscreen (original or new) to use, boot animations, boot screens and much more - all this without losing any data and having to set up everthing anew. Although the Lite Remix is originally based on Hero355's and Nexus' work, it now has many unique features.


A 'lite' CFW:
Although this CFW is lite in every sense of the word, meaning only the absolutely basic, non memory wasting stuff is included in the base install, you're not actually missing on anything. You may have everything other CFWs have in this one, too, but at your own choice and pace. You may add and remove anything that you need at your own will, and on top of that I'm providing easy to follow instructions for you to do so. The goal of this CFW is to be lite and easy on RAM, so that even HD Games like Tintin work good on it, while still keeping functionality. It is also intended as a solid base for other CFW projects of your own.


Thanks go to...:
This is based on Nexus' ZCLB4, Hero355's Amazing Turko CFW v8 and Hero355s Fully Lite ZCLC2.

HOW TO FLASH THE LITEREMIX
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Full Flashing
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1] Select from the CSC folder the CSC file fitting your needs (check 
    the accompanied text file). 
[2] Select from the MenuCFG folder the menu configuration fitting your 
    needs (optional, only if you want Java apps in the main menu).
[3] Full flash with CSC, MenuCFG and the files from this directory.
[4] Still confused? You might want to use Google and search for a 
    flashing tutorial.

I Want More App Memory!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Alright, I heard you. Just use the alternate FFS file inside the 
'zzz_extras' folder inside of the standard. Has to be applied during 
full flash, and you'll have to manually update Samsung Market this way, 
but you'll have ~10MB additional app memory, which might come in handy 
for demanding HD games. 

Music Hub, Caster, SevenIM, Widgets...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You might wonder where all the additional apps and widgets have gone. In 
the liteRemix, these are provided via a seperate extended bonus package 
with instructions included. You may add these to your running FW at any 
time without any data loss at all. Yup, your contacts, messages, memos, 
... will stay intact, even if you add these later on. 

Trouble with Facebook or SHP?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Use the MyAccounts patch from inside the folder called 'zzz_extras' (no 
data loss). This should fix almost all issues regarding the Social Hub. 
Some options inside the settings menu will be blank after using the 
patch. 

I Want The Original Lockscreen Back!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
No problem, just check the original lockscreen folder inside the 
zzz_extras folder. Again, you won't have any data loss adding this to a 
running installation. Starting to see a pattern here? 

Still want more?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Checkout the extended bonus package for a lot more stuff: additional 
ringtones, wallpapers, boot images, boot animations, BadaDroid patch, 
etc.....

Attention CFW modders:
Due to some heavy reorganisations some stuff that was previously in CSC://CSCsfs/SystemFS and in SHPAPP is now inside the FFS file. Keep that in mind when editing it yourself using my tutorials!

Old Stuff:
Old stuff (not recommended, but if you need it...) is still available from the old thread.


BTW: Again, I don't mind if you 'steal' from this one. In fact, I'd rather be flattered.
