Katalyst^2 changelog


List of modifications

Boot Modifications
Now get the freedom to choose your own Bootscreen(s). Unlike other CFWs, in Katalyst^2 you get 2 different Boot animations & sounds
Just select your boot animation(s) & sound(s). Place them in E:\Boot\ (automatically created by the FW). Rename them as-

First boot animation file - startup.gif
First boot sound file - startup.mp3
Second boot animation file - startup 2.gif
Second boot sound file - startup 2.mp3

Homescreens
Katalyst is the most flexible CFW in terms of Homescreens. You get to choose your own homescreens yourself (Not only just OraTsu like other CFWs, but also Orange Tornado & Vodafone HS)
There are 2 variants of the FW. One is the 8HS variant (No flash HS to avoid bugs) & the other one is the 9 HS variant (With flash HS) for those who can live with the Flash HS bugs.

These homescreens are provided with the FW-
Contacts Bar
Basic
Full page
Navigation bar
Shortcuts bar

Here are some links for HS threads (Orange Tornado & Vodafone). Choose whichever you like.

Collection of Vodafone homescreens by ravish_919

In the 9HS variant, you get samsung widget HS (Flash HS) without the samsung bottom bar. You can manually add/remove it anytime you want by simply placing this samsungtoolbar.mif in E:\resource\apps
