5. Flash FORMAT_ALL.zip....then in same recovery, flash ELITE ROM.
Reboot.



Series III is largely based upon a new look I have created for ELITE. I wanted to go in a direction that’s a little less “themed”
looking, and more like it could have come directly out of the box. My ultimate goal for the evolution of ELITE is a clean, professional look
that Sense UI started to bring to us. I do hope you like it as much as I.

A few remaining apk’s and png’s were optimized, making the ROM smaller in size, have a smoother feel, and handling even faster than its
predecessor. A few suggestions posted by you in the ELITE thread were also implemented in this series. I have themed this heavily upon
the newest version of Android “Honeycomb” while trying to maintain small pieces of Series I & II.

Quote:

The Market itself gets updated from time to time and brings the themed Market back to stock green. Once an ROM release has been posted, there will not be an updated market until the next release is posted. To get around this and gain the themed market back you can...go to Menu/Settings/Apps/Manage Apps. Find Market and hit Uninstall Updates. Then either go to Titanium Pro and freeze Market Updater or a file explorer like Root Explorer that gives you read/write permission, go to system/apps and find Marketupdater.apk and rename it .bak. That will keep it from happening again.


I would like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart…for all your continued help/support for me and each other. Especially
to the new XDA’ers who are new to flashing, and new to this ROM. What kernel is best for battery life seems to be the most popular subject,
and I appreciate those who give feedback on what is working best for you….in hopes it works best for others.


Thanks again everyone for your amazing support....



Thanks to: Aamikam for his work on optimizing all the apks and .pngs and for the best combination of animations. omegasun18 for all his hard work, contributions...and thoughts!!! Pseudoremora for the second post upkeep, and for framework mods. JsChiSurf for power control widgets mod, compact taskbar clock, 33 frame battery charging animation....and SO much more! Myn for Rosie setting app, and sound advice. Bustadroid for square glass app icons. Manup456 for wallpaper and insanly hot themed music app. Wes342 for help with animation.

Feedback is always welcome...I would love to hear your thoughts. Ideas and requests could very well make their way into ELITE Series III. Add-on's will be posted for those who wish to use other keyboards, music apps, email clients and more.

Check back often for updates to ELITE and be on the lookout for more exciting things.

Indeed, those days were very good.

Yup, that's correct. It can display both the weather and news if you'd like or have them display seperate information (personally, I prefer both).
