Welcome to Simplistic ROM Thread!

Developers: Do Not Use Anything from the ROM in your ROMs without permission, If that Happens, it is really easier than you think to spot it.
Also we're not responsible if your phone breaks out. Or if dragons pop out and eat you :p (I know I used this, but I like it)
Contact us for more info :)

Hello and Welcome the the Disaster Team's Simplistic ROM Thread. Enjoy your Ride.

The ROM has 3 Editions, we use Abbreviations to make it easier to type about.
Another Thing is that our ROM version is counted using Roman Numbers (e.g. I, II, III, IV, V..)

Now let's get to the abbreviations:
* Simplistic PS: Pure Stock
* Simplistic LE: Lite Edition
* Simplistic SD: Stock Disaster

So what do these editions mean, what does each edition offer? Let's look at a simple feature comparison chart.

So did you choose what suites you? Want to know more about that edition you chose? Look at the quick links on the right!

Want to know more about Simplistic ROM Control?
Want to know how to install the ROMs?
Then Scroll down to the next sections!

You may ask yourself about Simplistic ROM Control.
Well basically if you know AOKP ROM Control then you'll be familiar with it. Porting these features wasn't as easy as you think, and there is some features coded by me.
Simplistic Control is found inside the settings of both SD and LE Simplistics, pushed with a nice Icon to match settings.

Of course with time we will be able to get more features working, and even code features. So everything you see inside the Control APP works.

The ROM installation involves the same procedure that all ROMs use.

Important: Simplistic PS and LE are NON-WIPE
while Simplistic SD is A WIPE version.

To install the ROMs (applies to all editions):
*Download the Zip, don't extract it.
*Move the zip to the internal sdcard of your phone
*(Root Required) reboot into ClockWorkMod Recovery (CWM)
*Use volume buttons and home or power button to navigate. Choose Install Zip from sdcard.
* Then, Choose zip from internal sdcard. Navigate to the ROM desired, and select it.
*Highlight "YES" and confirm, then wait till it finishes
*Reboot and you're DONE! Wait till the phone boots.

Has anyone tried this rom yet? It would be interesting to see if there're the same data connectivity problems encountered in the other roms out here on xda, based on the latest KPA, LP1 and LP2.
I for one am using wanam's rom LP1 based which I found to be the most stable and which is of most importance to me, without 3G problems, but will definetely give this one a try tomorrow.
Thanks for your work mate and you'll get the needed feedback after flashing.
