SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.

Kill Any UI with UIFlex for WM
XDA member arealityfarbetween has posted an app in collaboration with XDA member cyber-junkie. There was an app that we talked about back in October called StartProgWOSense, which in essence killed Sense whenever an app was started and restarted it whenever the app was terminated. This new version of the application extends its functionality to other UIs as well, including but not limited to: Androkidd, SPB Mobile Shell, and many more. Your apps are bound to run smoother, especially for games like Need For Speed, Asphalt, and many other that are memory hungry.
Interested? Give it a go and make sure that you leave some feedback for the dev if you like the app.
UIFlex is a fork of StartProgWOSense with one major difference: It can function with any phone shell including, but not limited to; HTC Sense and SPB Mobile Shell. Thanks go to cyber-junkie for the initial idea and coding the excellent base that UIFlex has grown up from. Also to Mort for writing Mortscript, without whom none of this would have been possible!
In a nutshell, everybody loves a beautiful UI! Unfortunately beauty comes with a price-lots of our precious RAM! So, the goal of UIFlex is to allow you to run memory heavy programs without having to first disable your eye-candy laden shell, run the program and then re-enable your shell.
You can find more information in the application thread.
