    This is a STOCK Gingerbread MOD to AreaROM3.0. It mimics the Galaxy Nexus S.

    NOTE: The reason I used AreaROM3.0 was because it is working flawlessly with the PRL updates, Calendar, Camera and more. Very Stable, excellent ROM.

    All feedback is very welcome and NEEDED!!!

    Here are some of the changes...

    1. No Kernel Mod, so you can download and update whichever you like. I will provide this link to the AR30 working You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login though.
    2. Camera Color Filters are fixed.
    3. Stock Gingerbread Calendar Added.
    4. MIUI apps Removed.
    5. Boot Animation Removed.
    6. Gingerbread Wallpapers (including Live Wallpapers) and Sounds added.
    7. Tweaked build.prop.
    8. Stock Gingerbread Graphics all around.
    9. Stock email app added.
    10. Stock Widgets added.
    11. Changed AreaRom 3.0 Font Colors to Factory Defaults.

    UPDATE: Reworked graphics to better fit screen size. Smaller and load faster.

    Flash this just as you would AreaROM 3.0.

    Yes, still trying to find that little graphic... I think it's one of the icons used in the statusbar... but I'm not sure where it exists. I do believe it's in the SystemUI.apk. When I finally figure it out, I'll release that file for updating.

    Okay, updated the install to correct the Calendar issue. I know which graphic it is... and I "somewhat" fixed it... the line (See screenshot) is the only thing I need to fix now.

    I also need to fix the color of the volume sliders. So far, those are the only two things.

    So, if you flash this without doing a factory reset, you should retain everything.

    If you don't want to risk it, boot into recovery and use Android Commander or ADB to push the framework-res.apk file into the SYSTEM/FRAMEWORK directory.

    I have flashed each "update" to my phone each time and it kept all of my settings/data/etc.

    Okay, Font colors fixed in status bar. Should be about as close to stock gingerbread as you can get.

    Just to let everyone know, the reason I chose AreaROM 3.0 is because of it's flawless connectivity with MMS, PRL updates, etc. I also have the calendar fixed and all features of the camera working as well.

    Enjoy! Please comment.

    I'm not sure why you assume I use taptalk to read the forums, I never downloaded that app, I am using the google chrome web browser, that automatically comes with 3.2, but I'll download another web browser and see if that works, thanks. :]

    I love what you have done with 3.0! I loaded this rom last night before I went to work and Installed all my favorite app's.
    It's smooth, fast, and very snappy. I'm actually able to run a live wallpaper now with no lag where as before it was impossible for me. My sound is loud and crisp, good battery life even with AR51 946 OC kernel.

    A couple things I have noticed.
    My calendar has a black line though the mid top across the first week of the month and even moves when the phone is tipped sideways. It's not a big deal though.
    (EDIT: just noticed the screenshot of the calendar has the same line so the previous thought was pointless lol)
    My signal strength has went down quite a bit from 3.2, but I'm sure that's to be expected.

    All in all this modded version of AreaROM's 3.0 by kingfhb was created impressively well and I recommend everyone give it a go at least.

    Thanks so much for the feedback!

    The black line on the calendar will be fixed... I just need to replace on image file in the framework. Working on that. The signal strength is not a problem with the ROM... the way the graphics are setup in Gingerbread are kindof  weird (ICS too actually). The green bars are only shown every OTHER signal level... in between is displays white bars.

    Example: The range is 0 to 5 (I think)... There are 2 graphics for each bar, A "Normal" and a "Full". I would assume these represent Half bars (without showing only half a bar) and "Full" bars. The Full bars are Green, Half bars are White, and NO SIGNAL or Zero bars are grey. Now here's the tricky part... There are only 4 bars!!! SOOO... the 4th and 5th set of bars are duplicated to show Full. (Stock gingerbread only has 5 images, zero through four, not 12, zero through 5 doubled, like AR30).

    That is why your signal strength "appears" lower... because the percentage is spread across a doubled set of images to account for "half" signal bars. If there were half-bars or a "strength number" you would see the same signal strength you've always had. I will work on making it more accurate.

    So, in closing... those are two things I have to complete to make the MOD perfectamundo!
    1. fix the black bar on the calendar (framework update).
    2. fix the images for the Cell Signal (SystemUI update).

    It will be an update though (non-distructive) so you won't have to flash the entire ROM back (I hope).

    Unless anyone else finds any more. Thanks again for the comments and finds! I hope everyone enjoys the MOD! And the future MODS to come! ICS, XPERIA, and JELLYBEAN.

    Yeah, if you already have 3.0, you should retain everything and it will add the new apps as well. You will however have to reflash your kernel if you changed it to an overclocked one... it does overwrite the kernel.

    That's not a problem with the MOD. I had that happen to me and then the next voicemail I received and deleted it went away. That is something to do with the way the ROM itself is reading the information from Straight Talk. Maybe ask DroidHost, he would know more about the way it uses that information than I would.

    Ok so i have a problem. I can teather wifi but not receave wifi. Even after reboots. Reflashing fe16. Reflaahing the rom.  Nothing has worked any ideas?

    ok so its been a month and ive been trying diffrent things. on the market "FXR WiFi fix and rescue".apk will fix this problem, or atleast it worked for me. I was having trouble in the IP handshake and connection would drop at that point and try to reconect continiously.

    If anyone has this problem try this as a last choice but just before you factory reset. reflashing of rom will not solve the problem. At least it did not work for me. Hope this helps somebody in the future to not haft to wate a month trying diffrent apps.

    I still do not no what the underlying cause was.

    Ok, let me say I love this rom, great work u guys. But I figured I would tell you guys the few errors I found (some may be features) even though I think you may have already stopped work on this rom, I figured people have a right to know about these little glitches.

    1. 1 to 2 second screen wake up delay

    2. Missed sized video position bar

    3. Unplugging headphone while picking a ringtone using android system, or unplugging headphones while creating an alarm causing phone to switch to call log

    4. Sometimes when headphones are unplugged, media continues to play

    5. I have noticed about 2 hours less of battery life (I don't use the battery control app)

    6. Storage option in settings can sometimes display incorrect amount of memory left in internal or external, along with memory display in manage applications

    7. Default blue tooth name is "My Samsung Prevail"

    8. 3g speeds seem decreased slightly, from about 43 kb per second to 36 kb per second

    9. (And this one irritated me the most, but i think its supposed to happen) When you co to cm recovery and tell the phone to create a second partition, it data wiped the phone.

    If I find anymore I'll report them here

    Quick question...once you flash it, do you still do factory reset, or is that necessary? Thanks for the AWESOME work !

    I always use the option in CWM Before I flash. Just seems to be a cleaner way to install.

    In your screenshot of the drop-down menu, your images look a little big. Otherwise it looks great.
