Omega Files Kitchen Brings New Kitchen Experience to Samsung Galaxy S II
Some kitchens function like a developer’s toolkit and bring things like deodexing files and zipaligning apks. Some kitchens are like a themer toolkit and bring things like battery mods, icons, notification drop down enhancements, etc.
Some kitchens, like XDA Recognized Developer ::indie::‘s kitchen, called Omega Files Kitchen, come off as a user toolkit to modify their ROM and make it truly their own. The kitchen, installed as an application on a rooted device, is only available for the Samsung Galaxy S II, but that shouldn’t stop users of the SGS II from checking it out.
Omega Files has a variety of features, including:

When installed, the user can select from a wealth of mods, hacks and themes for users to select and install however they would like to in order to create a unique, personalized ROM. The app is frequently updated, with both bug fixes and new additions so the options and total number of combinations only grow with reliability.
For any Galaxy S II user who wants to check it out, you can check out ::indie::’s original thread where you can find screen shots, instructions, complete change logs for additions and fixes and discussion. As per the norm, be sure you make a complete back up before tinkering with your ROM, just in case something goes wrong.
