I just saw that at least one of my users couldn't find the download links. Although I thought they were placed in a good spot, that probably was not the case. So, first item of housekeeping - I moved the links for the latest versions for all the devices to the top of the right side of your screen.

Those of you who have been following the Samsung Galaxy Tab version of Sapir probably know that I decided to stick with the "old" partition layout which allowed for a larger data partition - more space for your apps. This is still the case. But, as a second item of housekeeping, I wanted to make sure the ROM will retain compatibility to CM, wherever possible. This also means that anyone upgrading from a Sapir build prior to 20120922 will have to follow a short procedure if they want their data kept:
Before upgrading:

  1. Perform nand backup from the recovery
  2. Install Sapir
  3. Install gapps
  4. Reboot
  5. Reboot to recovery
  6. Advance restore "data only" from recovery

You won't need to do this in the future.

Last item of house keeping - a cleaner look to the status bar and the navigation bar. At the request of a user (ArtoD2), I've merged the transparent navigation bar mod.

There are a number of other additions and changes - all will be detailed soon in the release post.
