Series III is largely based upon a new look I have created for ELITE. I wanted to go in a direction that’s a little less “themed”
looking, and more like it could have come directly out of the box. My ultimate goal for the evolution of ELITE is a clean, professional look
that Sense UI started to bring to us. I do hope you like it as much as I.
A few remaining apk’s and png’s were optimized, making the ROM smaller in size, have a smoother feel, and handling even faster than its
predecessor. A few suggestions posted by you in the ELITE thread were also implemented in this series. I have themed this heavily upon
the newest version of Android “Honeycomb” while trying to maintain small pieces of Series I & II.
The Market itself gets updated from time to time and brings the themed Market back to stock green. Once an ROM release has been posted, there will not be an updated market until the next release is posted. To get around this and gain the themed market back you can...go to Menu/Settings/Apps/Manage Apps. Find Market and hit Uninstall Updates. Then either go to Titanium Pro and freeze Market Updater or a file explorer like Root Explorer that gives you read/write permission, go to system/apps and find Marketupdater.apk and rename it .bak. That will keep it from happening again.
I would like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart…for all your continued help/support for me and each other. Especially
to the new XDA’ers who are new to flashing, and new to this ROM. What kernel is best for battery life seems to be the most popular subject,
and I appreciate those who give feedback on what is working best for you….in hopes it works best for others.
Thanks again everyone for your amazing support....
