Thanks for your hard work Giannis86. Great initiative.

I'll be using this on Manila2 (on release) until I cook something up myself

is anyone willing to test the version for the older manila?
i have a ROM with the new manila installed now so i need someone to help me...

i need the following from the test user:
1. Backup your files first (not required but always recommended)
2. Carry a series of tests and report CAREFULLY what items are still green in TF3D


ATTACHED IS THE BETA VERSION FOR THE OLDER MANILA. PLEASE REPORT HOW IT WORKS!!!!!
