Andromadus Mimicry ROM – version 1.5.0 (September 4, 2012)
...Or how I learned to stop worrying and love the ROM

= Mimicry for Jelly Bean?!? =

* * Be sure to read this post here * *

= What is this? =
Based off CyanogenMod 9 and forked from thee mighty Andromadus main repo.
– Daily merges of new CM9 patches & additions.

– Combines the fast and stable base of Andromadus/CM9 with new, unique features!

– Goal is to take advantage of our devices' hardware in a time where new ROMs are focused more on next gen devices – offer unique features to the Vision.

AROMA Installer provides the user with choice on installation, saving preferences for future versions.

= Newest Changes! =
Version 1.5.0 – September 4, 2012 [link]
– Merged in new CM9.1 changes

Requested Feature! Added remove all recent apps. Longpress app or press Trackball in Recent Apps overlay

New Feature! Added adjustable StatusBar background color and transparency

New Feature! Added colorize to Notification Shortcuts -- Change both the stock and default app icon colors on the fly! Toggling Notification Shortcuts resets the color

– Completely re-coded Notification Shortcuts -- faster, less unnecessary redraws

– Fixed Notification Shortcut alignment and spacing. Now draws and scales properly depending on available width. (Toggled on by default)

– Fixed exception in Notification Shortcuts causing Settings to crash on blank shortcut redraw

– Switched notification shortcut background pressed drawable to use notification_item's - will work with colorization to provide better theme consistency

– Modified default StatusBar color to act as an inactive default to allow themes to take priority

– When setting the date to appear in the StatusBar, it now maintains the same font size as the clock

– Applied hwc prop change to [mostly] fix corrupted text issue

– Updated translations for existing languages and added new languages for: Romanian, Czech, Lithuanian, Portuguese, Slovak, Serbian, Turkish & Chinese traditional!

– A big thanks to new translators: bogdan5844, CebeLL, daanas, dakf, Filip.Hunka, GizMoQC, hezeri, Jinxtedium, karalaine, Krusty, magno23, matteoa91, michuo, Petrs, shared_ptr, skui, TBest, TheGed129, tomaja & Whippler
