We are all here to learn, take from community and give back to community!!!

FAQ is HERE read it before posting.
ROMS should contain everything you need to enjoy ICS. You are not required to install any Add Ons, simply download the latest ROM, flash it, and go!
You are STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing, and if possible avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup - these can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug. If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience strange behaviour.
THIS IS NOT A SUPPORT FORUM - it's designed for Devs to exchange critical information.
