Changelog:
7/20/12-1.6:
-Completely redone with tons of modifications including but not limited to:
CRT animation
Services.jar modifications for removing of logging and enabling ADJ values to be compatible with V6 Supercharger script
Modified framework.jar for removal of some logging
ICS icons
Modified framework-res.apk
3-in-1 Power menu
SystemUI mods for quickpanel settings
Unlocked messaging options galore
Enable camera while in call
Enable music player while in call
Removed 100% battery charged notification
Removed accuweather logo from lockscreen
Enabled Folder View for Messaging app
Enabled Spam/Blacklist for Messaging app
Enabled native call/messaging block in Settings
Increased MMS recipient list to 50
Increased Contact links to 15
Enabled WiFi priority list (FCs when trying to set it up. Ignore for now)
Enabled Bluetooth Wideband Speech,Dial-Up Networking, and FTP support (experimental, not sure if working.)
Kernel now ADBs with root access by default
and more!
7/24/12-1.61:
Tweak CPU scaling slightly to eliminiate lag when turning on the screen. Let me know how it works. I may need to loosen the frequency a bit more.
Enable dual core always when charging, but back to defaults when on battery.
Remove "Hot Boot" option as it apparently either doesn't work, or freezes the phone until it works. Besides, it's not a very "graceful" way of shutting down the system. So, I guess it's now considered a 3-in-1 reboot menu.
Renamed the power menu option "Download" to "Download/Odin Mode"
Updated kernel to support bootanimation.zips
Added ICS bootanimation
Added back universal search from LF9
Default kernel governor is now MSM-DCVS.
7/28/12-1.7:
Updated to LG8 files and added back all tweaks, mods, and settings.
Added back the ability to change WiFi frequency band
Updated to LG8 kernel
Added "all rotations" per request (Thanks fergie716)
Added lock screen rotation support per request (Thanks fergie716)
Removed CRT animations per request (Vdubtx) and because they didn't properly work with the new surfaceflinger in LG8.
8/7/12-1.75:
Added browser debug menu by default.
Removed ContextAwareService (that is responsible for the headphone/headset icon and popup when inserting one. Also, FCs sometimes)
Removed mms server settings from messages. Causes server changing randomly. EDIT: Just kidding, it's purely cosmetic.
Updated 70cputweak to switch back to OnDemand governor as the current "msm-dcvs" governor stays at 1.13GHz almost all of the time, degrading performance slightly but more in benchmarks.
Added back "hot boot" option, but renamed to "Quick Reboot". It works, just not like I thought it would. This also fixes "Download/Odin Mode"
Odexed Framework.
Fixed data roaming issue.
Enabled long press volume to skip tracks when the screen is off.
Removed SysScope.apk

Remove SysScope service. (TrevE/Team Synergy)
JellyBean Animations.
Removed ScreenOn when receiving SMS. (option available in messaging preferences)
Added "display always on" under development settings.

Added "quick launch" under display settings. (not sure what it actually does)
Removed data connectivity lost notification when roaming.
More services.jar edits from the v6 supercharger thread. (zeppelin indeed ROX)
Remapped volume keys to be shutter keys in camera app.

Looks good man. Question, unless I interpreted it wrong, this rom is de-odexed?
この こえ かれて も きえない メロヂー

The difference between the strong and weak willed is that the weak traverse with wounds covered up and hide when attacked, while the strong stride on with open hands and tears. Wounds bared open, and will continue to go on, even when broken at their core
