Most of the ROM's out there are as stock as possible, and I'm probably the most appreciative of the great work the true developers do in making all of this happen. This custom ROM, however, is optimized with the best tweaks and fixes around, with a good looking theme.
As we all wait anxiously for a stable release of ICS that we can use daily, I have decided to re-theme my ROM by porting over many elements of the ICS source. v2.2 provides a taste of ICS with the status bar, clock widget, settings widget, all icons, and much more in the UI.
Download and flash MAGLDR version then install cLK kernel below
