Hi Guys,

This is my first attempt to build a custom rom. Hope to get better at it in the coming days. I started with Nooby's tutorial and am greatly thankful to him for it. The rom is still in an alpha stage as it is having some problems with network (Hoping other devs to help me out)

I have modded cm7 and have added the following,

* Removed AWD launcher and added Holo Launcher.
* Icons themed using JFK icons.
* ICS clock and roboto fonts added.
* Jelly Bean framework components added.
* ICS like settings screen thanks to Nooby
* Added Beats libraries.
* Build prop tweaks

To come:
* Network issue solved...HELP NEEDED
* No boot animations as of now...making mine
* More themeing
* Bravia engine
* Custom game wallpapers app (I an android dev just never tried rom building).
* Any wishlist from users...:P

Since you want ICS style, port full ICS theme over. It would be easier that way

Thats a point. But I rather the more the merrier. Name it Mod not KANG. Kang has cherry picks while Mod has what you have just done

Thats the spirit, you have full community support but be on track rather than over reactinng (hope you guess whom). I really need a cm7 rom for daily uses with a better camera.
And thankx for accepting my suggestions.
Best of luck.
