    Release notes for SS 4.96 (this is NOT Gingerbread .. that is in the works and is 5.0):

    NOTES:

    IF you run another launcher - DELETE Launcher2 - if you don't it will take up resources (do this by deleting Launcher2 from within ChevyNo1Tools)

    I suggest not wiping and just installing over what you have now. If you have any issues - wipe and re-install. Before you do - run a backup - then wipe - then install - then restore.

    IF you select Chevyno1Tools as the default for the menu key by mistake - open Settings from the app, drawer, manage apps, click ChevyNo1Tools and click 'Clear Defaults'.

    1. Based on 2.2.1 source code (aka FRG83)
    2. Data throttling 'hack' (see other posts) is included
    3. Ability to disable phone activating when hard keyboard is opened
    4. 'Odd' issues with 4.95 should be resolved
    5. bkapps/rstapps now can restore ALL settings, INCLUDING desktop widgets!
    6. Issues with Corporate Email fixed
    7. Updated in Rom Manager
    8. In recovery the date will say 1/14 - that was my original release date and did not get switched to 1/17
    9. I know this is not a LOT since the last release - but given my extremely short amount of time to dedicate here - it's the best I can do. Working hard on Gingerbread, aka SS 5.0!!

    For anyone that gets the blank/black screen after the bootanimation, and you know the phone is running ... try this (will attempt to fix this in next release):

    Also, for those that are getting an FC on wired tether .. that should not have been included in the ROM.

    The fix is to use a tool such as RootExplorer or TitaniumBackup to DELETE the file from /system/app. Then reinstall from the market, and you should be good to go.

    The link leads to a page that says internal server error. Also is there an unthemed version?

    Works great! Is there a way to get the apps to scroll smoothly and not scroll back a little when it goes up? Thanks for all your hard work!

    Also, when I pull down my notification bar it stills says SimplyStunning v4.72. How can I update that? Thanks again!

    @jmed99 - for the apps issue - are you talking in the pulldown, or in the app menu (are you using ADW?). For the pulldown text - go into Tools, Statusbar - can change carrier text there

    I'm not using ADW. When I tap the app button (between the phone and web buttons) and the apps come up and scroll through the apps, they scroll but will scroll back and forth a little at the end of scrolling.

    Ahhh - well that is part of the stock 3D launcher - if you don't like the slight bouncing - you really want the 2D launcher ... which I have not built for this version. If you really want it, I can build it ...

    In one of your recent versions (I think 4.9) it didn't do this...but instead it had a full screen of apps and scrolled smoothly. This version and most others only has 4 rows of apps and kinda scrolls back and forth at the end of scrolling. I prefer the other way...is there a way to set this back to the way it was in 4.9?

    I hope this makes sense! Thanks for your help!

    Oh...ok...I guess it's the 2D launcher I need then. No need to go through the hassle just for me.

    Sick! Downloading over 3G! Are you getting FC upon opening mobile networks? I know they were working on a solution over on xda but I wasn't sure if it was resolved.

    Nope - that is fixed :) Had that fixed last week, but this is the first ROM I've put it in.
