    DO NOT USE THIS APP. YOU HAVE TO RE-FLASH YOUR DEVICE AFTER INSTALLING IT. THERE IS NO WAY TO UNINSTALL.

    1. Shaun

      did you follow the uninstall instructions?

      1. Ragz

        Did you try the mod? Is the picture grainy?

        1. Shaun

          it will be. The modification zooms in on a small image, so being "grainy" is a natural result. I'm not aware of being able to use a bigger size image at this stage.

      No way to uninstall? You mean other then the "cp" command?

      Seriously, the installer script for this makes a backup of your original call-ui.css file in the style folder. To revert, all you have to do is copy that file back and reboot.

      What's the big deal?

    3. Ragz

      Why? What seems to be the problem?

  3. Robbie

    The file is apparently no longer available. Does anyone have another link where i can get this? Thanks
