Why would I flash this ROM ?

This ROM is for people who want the latest Samsung ROM with full Right-To-Left (RTL) and Arabic shaping support changing as little as possible from Stock.

What's exactly changed from stock?
  • Rooted.
  • Fully Deodexed. Browser does not lag (Thanks brightidea).
  • PNG Optimized and Zipaligned. (Smaller memory footprint).
  • Used my universal framework patcher to get RTL support in Android's menus and text fields. This patch also gives you correct alignment of text.
  • Used brightidea's latest Gmail + Browser RTL files. This will give you full RTL and arabic support with any text in these apps and their dependencies.
  • Photoshop stuff: Small battery percentage, and Green 3G and Wifi Status bar when connected to GServices.
  • Stock Kernel with CWM and Root (ChainFire's)

yep, still remember our deal

i dont' have time coz i'm leaving right now. but if you're flashing KE2, try to place only my new libwebcore.so in it and see if it crashes. The problem in libwebcore.so is gone for now i think, and thats the best way to test it.

we might be still having a problem with my font though. so you guys can test and try with different fonts to see if anyone of em will work.

I have some pretty good reason to believe that this is what Samsung has intended to give us. my initial tests also verify that

if it still crashes, then its either the fonts (first scapegoat), the deodexing or any mods you might have added to the system. so basically another problem for another time
