About
This ROM is based on MCR with a few tweaks and mods of my own. It's meant to be light and fast and yet stable as possible. The changelog might show newer versions but it might not be out yet. Usually i will update the changelog to let people know what to expect in the next release. v2.3 will convert to EXT4 automatically for you. It's not recommended to use PP or any tweakpacks because it might interfere with the tweaks currently in the rom.

Downloading :) Most people are waiting for CM7 I think.

But I will try this, because this one is available now :D

All downloads failed for me, have to wait 15min again to get another chance to download :s
Can't you use multiupload.com?

I got a couple of Force Closes so far, the Quadrant results are "normal", around 3000 points. The theme is standard Gingerbread.
I really wish those controls on the notification window. I don't know why removing them is considered a good idea. Also the LG stock music player seems very good compared to the standard Android.
Anyway, it seems to be a great rom. Thanks.

LE: the Eternity Project kernel 1.5b works without problems with this rom.
