Hi all!

This is a compilation of tweaks/themes/mods found around the forums (and elsewhere) cooked together with some of my own modifications and slimmed down into one firmware for the Galaxy Player/Galaxy S WiFi 5.0". Note that much of this is other people's original work. I have linked to sources for a lot of the features in the list. Go thank these developers for their awesome job!

My goals for this firmware are that it should look decent, be slim and fast, and have good battery life. If you have found or developed a tweak or mod that you think will improve this firmware, by all means do suggest it in this thread. However, keep in mind that I cannot work magic, and have used Android for less than a year. Even so, I will try my best to implement feature requests, and to fix all bugs.

This firmware does not include a kernel, so it should support all USA and international devices (and partially the Korean version) as long as you install the correct kernel (by rumirand or Entropy512) for your device. After installing the kernel, reboot into recovery and flash the zip at the top of post 2. I would recommend re-installing the kernel afterwards, just to be safe. Also, when coming from another firmware, you will probably need to "wipe data/factory reset." If you are just upgrading, you should only need to clear cache.

awww lol damn beat me to it. i was working on a rom with the newest KPL firmware a while back but never finished it. i haven't tried yours yet but I would recommend you remove that hosts file IMO. people put hard work and most of all time into their apps and it sucks to not get ad revenue from all that.

True... but there are people (like me) who have no way to pay for the premium apps even if they wanted to. I guess I'll remove it - if people really want it, it's not too hard to put back. (edit: that is, individually)

I have tried it ROM is very good. Everything works. But I will probably go back to Eryigit GB-2.3.6 G70ZCKPA because it supports more laguages. If you will find a way to add slovan languages gonna be happy to move to your ROM. Tanks for your job
p.s. I had a feeling that this rom is a little bit slower than the others.

As for me using a ROM in english is not such a big problem, but when you have an ability to use your device in native language its much more pleasant now I am configuring Eryigit rom 2.0 a little bit for myself. This ROM supports czech and russian. Yesturday I installed there a mix of John_2k2 and iJimaniac themes. It needs to be fixed, but it works at least. It looks very similar to this ROM''s ICS theme
maybe in nearest future I will try to add there advanced power menu and another toggle bar. If I will make it I can send it to you, so we can have all good features in native languages. but its a question of struggeling with my lazyness
