General Info & Introduction
  • Android Open Source Project: Or in short AOSP. Android is an open-source software stack created for mobile phones and other devices. The Android Open Source Project (AOSP), led by Google, is tasked with the maintenance and further development of Android. Many device manufacturers have brought to market devices running Android, and they are readibly available around the world.
  • Rooting: Android rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets, and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as "root access") within Android's subsystem. Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices, resulting in the ability to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized apps that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user.

Ok,i flashed the rom,i like it,especially the customization options.
One small request and suggestion,if i may.i'm using 240dpi and at this value,the answer call button is off centered to right.chasmodo from n7000 section gave me the solution,but it's up to you if you test it or not.

I quote him:

This works for n7000, I fink it'll do the trick for Optimus, too:

1. go to packages/apps/Phone/res/layout/incall_touch_ui.xml and

2. find the line that contains


3. change it to be


4. get the build going

Great rom! Everything seems to be working fine. Why is there no option to edit hardware key functions in lockscreen? I've never seen a custom ROM without that option.
