This is an ongoing developer project to make way for a modification that will entirely transform your device, but retain the aesthetics and the experience of your phone. I know you've seen tablet mode roms before, they change two lines in your build.prop file which you could easily edit yourself in seconds and maybe throw a keyboard in there to make it work better. It's a start, but this ain't enough. This thing has potential, but it is wasted the moment you try to stuff a full blown tablet into your poor phone. Yet we all know our high res phones can very well handle more than silly 1-column layouts. So the magic must be in between somewhere, a place that Google must have overlooked and left blank. Yes, this rom strives to drop your device into tablet mode, but it won't stop there, it will reshape and redefine ICS to make it all a useful addition and not just a cute novelty. we're calling it: Hybrid Mode, best of both worlds.


Pretty simple really, download and flash :P
- Full wipe isn't always necessary, but always highly recommended. Don't bother with bug reports until you've full wiped.


- Set the font size to 'Large'
- Go into the navigation bar settings, hold your phone in landscape, change the button quantity to 5, then back to 3. (Buttons shouldn't be crammed together anymore).
- Check "Auto Hide" in Settings, System, Statusbar, to finally get Fullscreen (or Hold power button, and press "Toggle StatusBar")
- Launcher Settings: margins: SMALL (If youre using Apex / Nova), show permanent searchbar: YES, Grid: 5x4, resize all widgets: YES, Wallpaper scrolling: OFF


- The same as the Pyramid unofficial cm10 build as of now.
- Headphone Routing (Use the headphone routing app from the market for the moment)

I would give this a try, but the HTC keyboard is a must. No keyboard on the market even compares. Paid or free.

However, thanks for the hardwork and I hope you get the responses from the XDA community you expect. I think you will.

Thanks again for a change.
