I... don't have tabs in the settings app :/ Which part are you thinking about?

EDIT:

Hopefully, you got those e-mails regarding AOSP Phone, too?

EDIT 2:

*face palm*

I just realised what you were talking about:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2273807

I used the above guide, to an extent, the rest I had to adapt myself (since that was written for CyanogenMOD)

Use the above guide to know what you need and take whatever you need from Ultima.

this may be the last S3 Rom for a short while - im concentrating on finding work and getting the new S4 Rom ready for release atm, plus im currently putting myself through 3 courses so my time is becoming limited.

Im hoping this release will keep most people happy for now anyway

I will be updating to MG6 at some point

We hope this while will be really short :cyclops::fingers-crossed:

Well, I just asked for some info for the s4 and got my head bit off, so as it stands, I'm not doing a Sammy s4 ROM...I'm not sure where to go from here now...

Yess!! I know you don't like requests-- but I've been using your ROM for a few months now, I try other ROMs but keep coming back to this. Perfect balance of both UI's. Thanks man :good:

Isn't a bad request pal... I hope it will be approved :)

What MG6 feature are you desperate for? Newer is not always better!

Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk 2

theres not been any major changes in any 4.1.2 fw...always incremental, small lines of code added in

I dont know if that guy is expecting 4.3 features or summat....but, its the way of the noob - latest is always greatest :rolleyes:

People now wont use this rom or view the thread just because it says MG4 and not MG6 in the thread title

    • ETA requests will be ignored
    • Requests for new mods will be read, not necessarily actioned
    • Rom Control only works in English, other languages will fc (Translations are being looked at)
    • If you are experiencing lag in the gallery, wait for the phone to finish loading/caching all the images
    • To repeat, i will not add in any Touchwiz features that aren't already in the ROM
    • Do not ask for ETA's or early changelogs...its rude
    • There will never be a non inverted option for this ROM

    Cant take a screenshot?
    You must manually create the folder:
    /storage/sdcard0/Pictures/Screenshots


    FAQ
    Why dont i have any power menu toggles? - Disabled by default, toggle in Rom Control

    Too crowded in here, too many aosp roms, too many fanboys

    Im done, its been a nightmare all the way through
    Unless you release an update every couple of days, people arent interested - thats not what rom building is about imo
    I guess ultimarom is the one for you lot now, its based on my work anyway
    See ya around the forums

    Thanks to all the relevant people, you know who you are
