READ THiS!!

Rom Information!

THE GOAL OF THIS ROM, IS TO STAY AS CLOSE TO STOCK AS POSSIBLE, REMOVE WHAT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED AND ADD
WHAT I FEEL SHOULD BE ADDED TO IMPROVE UPON THE STOCK BASE.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO ME IS STABILITY, THAT COMES FIRST!, BEFORE MODS AND FEATURES, NEXT IS SPEED AND FLUIDITY FOLLOWED BY, USEFUL MODS THAT MAKE OUR LIVES A LITTLE EASIER.

THIS ROM IS NOT THEMED OR SKINNED IN ANYWAY, AND WILL REMAIN A 100 PERCENT STOCK IN LOOK AND DESIGN.

DEVS, DO NOT USE ANY PART OF THIS ROM WITHOUT CONTACTING ME, AND DO NOT USE THIS ROM AS A BASE!

IN CLOSING, PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK!, AND ENJOY MY ROM!! :good:
