Brilliant work Nik, glad to see you here!
Quick Question, how did you manage to fix the lock screen line? Did you resize or did you just remove the dark background?

The two don't compare. ICE DS is sense 3.6 and this is sense 4.0

Nikhil, mate! Could you give a brief about the quality of Camera images and videos?? Is it optimized compared to fallout??? Just came across this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1533238 !! I've kept it on the download!! But just wanted some idea as to the Camera!!!

Thanks :D

The thing is brother I haven't actually tested anything as I don't have this device .. you give it a test and tell me how everything works for u
