|-----[Changelog / etc]
| This is based off of Beezy’s 4G beta 2 androidcentral rom,
| with several improvements made by me for Nexus S 3G.
| I am really trying to crank out stability and full updates in this beta
| so this can truly be a daily build.
| Since Beta 5 had a few issue, I have made beta 6 and resolved a few of those issues.
| -fixed many force close with languages
| -removed gmail 4 for now and put latest gingerbread version in so contacts will load
| -updated dpi to fix notification bar and resolution
| -included Astro
| -included Facebook
| -minor build.prop updates
| -other minor updates
| -some Apps will show up in the market as not compatible for your device,
| these apps are currently being updated for ICS release no worries.
| -This is not a huge release, but this is enough to make it a daily use rom.
| -Bluetooth does not currently work because of a missing file
| -Lag, if you experience lag after first boot. I recommend a reboot after setup wizard.
| -GPS is not fully accurate but is working close enough for now.
| -Languages have issues, some work perfectly others may cause the system ui or status bar to force close.
| -A release candidate will becoming soon.
| How To Speed Up Your System:
| In the Settings under the system menu you will notice Developer Options.
| In Developer Options under the Applications menu click Don’t keep activities,
| so every app will be closed when you decide to close it.
| You can also limit your background processes in here.
| - Whatsapp not available in Beta 6 market (fix contacts problem) : ftp://down.kwakkel.me/WhatsApp4ICS.apk
| - problems with gmail (Old version in beta6, new with bug in Beta5)
| - missing settings button scrolldown menu notification bar
| - errors when using different language (should be minimalized)
| - music controls missing in notification pulldown menu
| - Data Usage doesn't show application usage
| - flash player doesn't work
| - USB Transfer speed low (USB 1 speed?)
| - notification bar scrolldown doesn't work from lockscreen
| - change contact picture, selecting picasa doesn't work
| - force close when selecting display settings
| - Icons wifi/gsm/3g overlap on notificationbar
| - Sound effect in Google music stop working when you switch between apps.
| - Google Calendar: guest options don't work
| - pop-up where an app requests Root permissions is almost unreadable in portrait
| * facebook sync not working is not a bug Use Friendcaster instead
| * menu button does not work on homescreen is not a bug!
| MANY THANKS to Beezy for the NS4G Beta 1 and NS4G beta 2,
| We couldn't have done it without you ;-)
| And of course the rest of the credits go to Drew for the NS3G beta's (2/3/4/5/6...)
