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.

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.

this reminds me of the good ol hero days imma have to try this bad out
Indeed, those days were very good.
Is the genie widget the thing at the top that shows the weather in the screenshot?
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).

Thanks for comment, we appreciate it!

music widget doesn't work, when tapped doesn't load the music app...just a heads up. Also why no lockscreen music controls? Looks pretty good but miss the little perks, thanks anyways.

The HTC music player was replaced with the MIUI player, which is far superior in my opinion. I will post an add on for those who wish to use the HTC player. Unfortunately the widget was left behind in the first build....sorry.

If you want better battery life try nets 4.3.2-cfs-nosbc-havs-less kernel... seems like a good rom so far, trying it out to see how it compares to KingsUltra... almost seems like its the same rom just with a different theme. Good work tho.

Another good suggestion is to flash the HTC Sense kernels #'s 17 or 15. A lot of people including myself have had pretty good battery life with them. As always though, this is a trail and error process.

    I would like to apologize to everyone for being MIA as of late. We moved here to DC in October of last year, and still do not have a job...lol. I will say I haven't tried all that hard to look for one, as we had a nice little nest egg to sit upon...and I was unpacking, putting this house together, and building ELITE I, II, and III.

    However, it has come to that "point" where I need to find myself a job asap...lol. I have drove all over Annapolis and DC, throwing my resume at anyone who would take it...plus spent countless hours online filling out applications to every job site known to man :)

    So that is where I have been this past week...I just don't want you guys to think I have been ignoring you.

    Thanks everyone for supporting each other!!!!

    I reallly didn't want to explain in this great of detail of my "possible" woes...but I wanted you to know it's of real importance that I focus alot of my energy on finding a job, as we will be needing the second income here very, very soon.

    With that said and out of the way...

    While I was driving around thinking....I came up with some killer ideas, and some new slamming features for ES4 :) Plus I've been scoping the thread perodically and listening to the ideas you all have mentioned for the next release.....and I think you will end up being pleasently suprised with would you find in ELITE IV :)

    Thanks guys!!!

    Thanks everyone for your continued interest in ELITE Series, and I apologize for being extremely MIA as of late.

    I have been taking a break from all the craziness of my laptop, internet, and XDA. Yes, I'm still looking for work in the DC area...however, we are also getting ready for a big move (yet again).

    I have built two ELITE version in my spare time (what little I have with all the packing)...one of GB with Sense 3.0...and one of MIUI. Some of you might not like MIUI, but of all the AOSP's out there...MIUI is the smoothest I've tried.

    I will post my work in the proper places. GB/Sense 3.0 here in XDA and MIUI theme over at the MIUI forum.....all in due time :)
