    Not that Im aware of, sorry. That would be up to whoever is working on GSM radio support. That part of things is beyond my current skill level. lol

    There are a couple of added bonuses Im adding to this release (official I suppose. lol)

    Biggest thing, at least for me, is that I am adding in some custom ringtones! I have taken some of the battle music from Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core (PSP game), and used segments of some of the songs, clipped them, added an 8db bass boost, and widened the stereo effect a bit. Should be an interesting addition! I am personally a HUGE fan of the Final Fantasy series, and have 2 hacked PSPs (a 1000 and a 3000. 3000 is from Singapore). BOTH have Crisis Core on them, and as many legacy PSX games from the FF series as I could fit. lol Some of the older ones are actually pretty fun still. Im spending several hours getting these ringtones clipped the way I want them.

    Also, for those that want it "just because", I am including Beats Audio in the next release. Its hard to tell (for me) if its making a difference or not, but its in there, if anyone wants to test it hardcore. :icon_ lala:

    The download link still says the 9th is that wrong or that just not updated? No worries I'll just wait for B3 or official whatever you call it.

    Right. No video codecs yet, but at least its good enough for a perfectly good daily driver. I use it 99% of the time, and only swap back to my v4.5 install for things like camera features, and thats about it. But I could probably do that on ICS with a camera app if I wanted to. lol

    I have only been running it for a day and it seems a little bit smoother and battery a little better of course Chevycam took out some apps that were useless to me and it made a difference I haven't had time to really play with it I've been really busy building a monster gamer PC for a friend :)

    Your still using BETA 2 if your installing right now. The official version is uploaded, but not posted yet. Should be in a few minutes though. Just finishing up the OP changes.

    I just realized I uploaded the release with my ringtone in MP3 format, not OGG. It won't show in the ringtone list otherwise. I will upload seperate "patch" in the OP with the correct ringtone format in it, for those that want it.

    None at all its very responsive and fast to the touch, so far everything works that works in AOKP for me. Maybe they needed to wipe something or it needed two wipes
