Looks great, the name fits the ROM, I'll flash it after the weekend.

Q: Which kernel? If I want to use Galaxian with your ROM, is it best to delete the init.d scripts you added? (by this I mean the tweaks)

Sorry, forgot to mention. It uses TalonDEV 0.4.3. The tweaks shouldn't be a problem, I didn't test Galaxian though.

Notes:
(1) Deodexing has the advantage of easy customization, but it breaks some apps like the browser. Since Simplicity needs few customization, it isn't required to do so. And since it's odexed, it will boot faster.
Not entirely true... sure, the first boot will be faster than the deodexed equivalent, but all subsequent boots will be the same. Please don't falsely advertise.

So its not a problem zipaligning system odexed apks?

Thx in andvace.
I haven't experienced any problem by doing so. So no, I don't think it's a problem ;).

Is this the first themed odexed ROM for SGS i9000?
Not quite sure, could be.

Is the 3D fix added to the rom? (Attached) credits to currydude and the person before that who uploaded it.
No, I planned to do so in the next version. Thanks for linking the file :D New version coming soon.

Very promising!
Could we have battery % ?
Thanks!
I'll add a battery percentage add-on soon. After installing the zip, you'll have the percentage ;).

I really like the looks of this ROM. Trying this instantly. ;)
Thank you :). Post your thoughts ;)

Not entirely true... sure, the first boot will be faster than the deodexed equivalent, but all subsequent boots will be the same. Please don't falsely advertise.
Sorry, didn't know that, I thought I had read that somewhere. Fixed. I thought odex files were optimized files to reduce disk space? So it still has an advantage ;).

Edit:
I just saw I forgot to add the kernel and modem in the installation zip. So please wait with installing till 0.2 is ready. If you already did install, you can install 0.1 to 0.2 update zip which will install the modem and kernel included.

I used APK Manager. I copied the system apk's and odex files to the place-apk-here-to-batch-optimize and then used option 15.

I don't know if it's needed to also copy the odex files.

No problem ;)
