Defrag DB’s on boot
Busybox 1.19.3
Native screen capture
Beats audio, Dolby, SRS, and EQ in music player
HTC Quicklaunch widget from bliss also added
Unlocked more settings in Browser

All other stock sense 3.5 goodies included

For a full list of tweaks, changelogs and all the shout outs, you can check out the original thread found right here .

Some early reports indicate that there’s still a few bugs to work out and aamikam is quoted as saying

Ok guys, remember this is the first release and has not been tested on all the devices yet so please post feedback, Thanks

So if you happen to flash this beautiful piece of work and find something, it’s been asked that it gets reported so it can be fixed.
