This ROM is a collaborative effort between members of Team PATB. We hope you enjoy running it as much as we've enjoyed putting it all together. Like all ROM's this is a work in progress and we hope to add much more to it as we continue. We try to test everything before releasing but please be patient with us if you find any bugs or issues. We'll do our best to get them fixed.
Fixed the skip tracks
Removed excess batteries
Added the OTA to the main settings
More toggles in lab tools!
Some clean up and orginization
Known Bugs: Unfortunatly the 160 char bug still exsists, we thought it was fixed
Still make backups before flashing stuff from the updater
A big shoutout to @jimmydene84 for hooking us up! Also @sleshepic for some tweaks.
This update has changed a lot so it's really important to clean install (wipe cache, dalvik cache, factory reset, system, and data in twrp, I am not sure what to select in cwm). Also, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACK UP BEFORE FLASHING ANYTHING ELSE!!!! A lot of the stuff may break you from the updater, so please post in the thread whats ok and whats not if you try anything.
I'm probably going to miss some changes for the changelog, but heres what I can remember:
Added Lab Tools to the settings app. Inside the settings app you can find:
Lab Rats Updater. This replaces the TN updater and is still located in the app drawer as well for user convenience.
Reboot button for user convenience.
Rom Control including the following mods: general, lockscreen, clock, and various status bar mods. This is located in settings under lab tools,
Changed some tweaks again, thanks to @sleshepic for some of his!
23 toggles are now default
Back to LK8 kernel as Saber isnt good for everyone but it is still the Rat kernel of choice.
More theming as usual including some awesome toggles, drop down, loading symbol, text selector icons, and more!
Debloated some more, but I don't think most users will notice any loss of functionality.
Removed TN stuff, as Team Pinky and the Brain are all we need! We are also going by the Rats of Anarchy as we needed more than 2 rats lol. We arent sure exactly what name we are going to stick with, we are always open to your thoughts tho!
Added a new boot animation to remove TN and the other text. The quality isnt the greatest but it will be improved at a later date.
Added new PATB script when flashing.
This is the first time we have ever needed this for a base on release day!
Anything from the updater may break you as most of it needs updating.
A few of the batteries do not work correctly and are labeled nothing to see here and move on.
The draw to create a cropped screen shot does not open the cut out screen. It is still saved to your screenshots it just doesnt pop up with the options.
Music controls are picky on when they work and what music player you use. If you find a way it works best post it in the thread. Thanks from @jimmydene84 in regards to Lab Tools:
Thanks to Didact74 for is tireless efforts and the s3 and willingness to share his guides and mods mainly this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1928943
Beanstown106, synergy team, and alliance team for porting it already (used code reference from all when i got stuck)

My personal AC!D tweak reccomendations:
-Go to settings\sound\music effects and ensure Noozxoide EIZO-rewire PRO series is selected. This is now done automatically in 2.1
-Open the Noozxoide EIZO app and select Line-Out Audio Monitor\(enable) Deliver balanced natural sound\choose
"unique" digital presets
-Enjoy your great new sounds
Setting up the updater for auto flashing
Go into the updater/settings/reboot type. Select CWM for CWM and OpenRecoveryScript for TWRP.
Now when you download zips, hit reboot and install and the updater will do everything for you! If you move the updater location to your external sd card, it will break autoflash!
Stepping in here as a member of Team Nocturnal and as an XDA Moderator. Things are starting to get out of hand (here and in other threads). I think it's time this conversation is closed.
Yes, Mijjah was an extremely valuable member of TN and of XDA and yes he will be missed. He's not offered up publicly his reasons for "retiring" but he's got his reasons and they are good ones. Let's let him have the time he needs and be thankful for what he's already given us.
Life will go on and so will development. I even have it on good authority that he will be helping out behind the scenes with some dev work.
