CHT version v2.0.0 bring major changes. Most of the mod has been rewritten from the ground up, every line of code has been looked over and optimized for speed. Lots of new features have also been added along with an addon widget framework. Generally the mod is more configurable than ever.
You must uninstall any previous version of CHT and soft reset before installing this one.
If CHT was cooked into your custom ROM, install over the cooked version.
A new version of CHTEditor is also available: CHTEditor v18.104.22.168 final – you must use the final version of CHTEditor with CHT 2.0 final.
There is no backward compatiblity with versions 1.x.x, so you can’t import old CHTE 1.x settings files.
But you can import saved files from 2.0 beta into 2.0 final. Similarly, future versions will be compatile going forward, so you will be able to import your 2.0.0 settings into any 2.x.x version.
If you’re upgrading from v2.0 beta, read this post.
Here are the highlights of what’s new in v2.0.0. A full list of changes is very quite large and you should read the user manual to find out all that’s possible.
These are just highlights, but I know you’ll discover the details by reading the manual and of course while exploring the home tab itself

Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
