Would be interesting if chameleon could be mixed with the hybrid engine.

running it now its really smooth and all and i love the green style, but the transparent status bar isn't that good cause when i open the app launcher the transparency vanish slowly and that looks just weird.
and the signal bar transparent is strange too i just had 1 bar and i thought wtf is that on the status bar =)

but i really love the design it looks pretty cool but im using franco kernel with gamma settings and the settings without gamma the gray's from settings are just not dark enough
if i could design my own style of system it would be truly black + purple and pink just looks really awesome

Nice to see this ROM officially on xda. I gave it a try when it first dropped and it runs extremely smooth.

If I could make a couple feature requests. First would be an option to disable the quick settings toggles and just use the miui style ones. Second is an option like in miui to enable security on an per app basis (ex.: requiring a password or pattern to open certain apps).

Other than that keep up the good work it's nice to see some unique roms being made.
