SkyRaider Zeus 1.3 Release
The official thread for the SkyRaider Zeus is here: http://goo.gl/3J2fj. Make sure to check it out. This is a fresh new innovative Sense ROM for the Thunderbolt. I hope you enjoy it.
Please do not publicly release versions of my work without my prior approval. If you would like to use something, PM me.
This ROM offers a lot of new enhancements and optimizations over stock Sense. I have made some new Quick Settings, enhanced parts of the ROM and even took skins to a new level.
The expanded status bar has been completely reconfigured and optimized. You will notice quite a few changes to it over stock. The approach I took was create more room by removing unnecessary items while retaining and even gaining functionality. The recent apps bar is hidden by default, but you can access it at any time by long pressing on the title bar. To switch to Quick Settings, simply tap the title bar once.
I have added seven additional Quick Settings and created four of them myself. This is really just the beginning in this arena. I already have plans underway for more customizations.
There are a few enhancements to Rosie including a re-mappable buttons and custom button icons, drop to uninstall over the trash can, and an unlocked edit button to display application details.
Another unique thing about this rom is the addition I made to skins. The edge glow effect that you will find in this ROM can change colors simply by choosing another skin. Five skins are included with this ROM and each has a different edge glow color to match its theme. In addition, any other Sense 2.1 Gingerbread skin you find on the Internet will work with this ROM, however, if the edge glow graphics are missing, it will use the default images. A big thanks goes to wowthatisrandom for modifying the skins for me and helping out with testing.
Something new to SkyRaider is the addition of several original LTE tools to help make your life a little easier. For starters, there is an integrated Sense style widget for your home screen. There is also a Quick Setting for toggling while you have the expanded status bar down. Then there are some more advanced options like Auto LTE. You can configure your phone to turn off LTE when the phone goes to sleep and back on when you wake it up. The options include timers for screen on/off times in case you have a habit of quickly flipping on your phone just to check messages. All of the tools use an advanced engine I wrote to allow switching from 3G to 4G faster than ever (as long as you are within range of an LTE tower).
Lastly, you will find the Sense 3.0 lock screen in here along with several screens to choose from. I also included the Sense 3.0 Weather application. A big thanks goes to seo for the lock screen and weather items.
BIG BIG thank you to all of my testers. They really helped out a lot identifying bugs and helping make this ROM great.
