Popular Galaxy S III Mod Pack Released for Galaxy S I9000

Development on the Samsung Galaxy S III has been on fire recently. That being said, development on other devices to include Galaxy S III goodies such as the new launcher, new widgets, and a certain voice assistant have been steadily making their way across XDA in the form of single mods and, in some cases, mod packs that include all of them. We brought you news of a Galaxy Nexus mod pack that brought several Galaxy S III goodness at once, and now the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 has one as well.

The mod pack for the Galaxy S is much like the one for the Galaxy Nexus and even appears to have been created by the same team of developers. Users can install this mod over top of pretty much any ICS AOSP offering, including CM9, AOKP, and SlimICS. The sole purpose is to bring the Galaxy S III-exclusive applications to the device. The pack includes many SGS III widgets and applications, as well as much of the small stuff such as sounds, icons, and wallpapers. As XDA Senior Member smalldookie states:

Bored with Stock-CM9, SlimIcs or AOKP? But you go crazy when you don’t get your nightlies day by day? You like the SGS3 style and miss some features of the stock ROMs?
The TWICS-Addon-Pack adds a bunch of stock-apps that where ported by xda-members, some SGS3 feeling with (system)-sounds and icons directly ripped from leaked frameworkres.apk/systemui.apk/systemapps of the SGS3 ROM and many more features to your phone.

The mod pack even plays nicely with the CM9 Nightlies, so if you’re a compulsive flasher, the mod pack can be re-installed every day right along with the ROM so you don’t lose any of the functionality.

Hit up the original thread for more details, full feature list, and download links.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
