This is the first ROM I have ever created and its very close to the stock one. Only some preinstalled apps are removed and some features added. I don't have the time to make much modifications so don't expect much "killer features" in this ROM.
The main intention for creating this ROM was that I was low on internal memory all the time so the main feature for me is the Darktremor Apps2SD support.
If you want to overclock, install this kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=866774

Custom status bar:
THIS WILL NOT WORK WITH STOCK ROM! Your ROM needs to be deodexed!
Many people wished a black status bar (including me) so I took a look into it. The tricky part of making a black status bar is to get the clock, date and ticker text color to white. There are some tools here in the forum for doing this automatically but none of them worked for me so I searched for a description, how to make this manually. I found it in a youtube video.
The easier part is changing icons, battery symbol etc because there is the great Ultimate Online Theme Kitchen. This is really great. Just click together what you want and let this kitchen cook your theme. . Most features should work but I have not tested them all.
If you want to create your own status bar feel free to extract the framework-res.apk from one of the following files. If you want to create a black status bar use the first one, if you want to create a white status bar use the second one.
These files are flashed like a ROM. (First reboot takes very long)
