    Thank you!

    Also, I wrote a quick review of the Elf II on my blog here. There are a few benchmarks and some basic stuff about this tablet. I will probably add some game tests too.

    Thanks for sharing the ROM!

    I'm puzzled here.

    There are apps which are installed on my GT-N7000, but these apps can't be installed on the Elf2 (w/ DarkElf v0.2)

    In Google Play web portal it did see the new "Samsung GT-N7000", but, it just report as item incompatibility.

    On another custom ROM (feiyu), the build prop with "Samsung GT-I9100" is fine.

    I only modified the model and manufacturer so that Gameloft games doesn't say the tablet is incompatible when you start the game. I believe feiyu's rom has modded fingerprint too that may change Play store compatibility. I'll look into it. Can you tell me a few apps that you are able to install on feiyu's but couldn't install on mine so I can evaluate my changes?

    I have a same problem. Your ROM is fine, especially tutorial, but on GT-N7000 has got less compatible aplications in Market then I9000 which use in feiyu. For example Chrome browser, my internet banking aplication for tablet, some weather and time widgets what I use. I think it will be better in next version if you use model of Samsung I9000. Because now, I go back to feiyu ROM.

    OK I will mess about with the I9100 mod, I'll try to match the compatibility of the feiyu rom.

    I don't know about languages just yet. I'll put it in the planned list.
