However, here is the good news: I will be turning these removed items in "extras packs" so that you can add them back if you really want them. You, the end user, will get even more choice as certain "Extras Packs" will use Aroma so you can choose which particular features of the Extra Pack you actually want while leaving out the ones that you do not want.

*Velocity² is currently in it's Nightly Build Stages, although ~95% stable, things can still go wrong. I, Leigh Kennedy, will not be held responsible for any problems caused as result of you, the end user, flashing this ROM.
