metro. simple, clean, fast
I had created this CFW with the thought in mind that I would use this myself. Now, I thought it would be beneficial for me if some beta testers could advise me on various aspects and report bugs as well as their fixes. I'll be highly thankful.

(Down for maintenance!
Hard reset BEFORE flashing! It is important or you won't get qt!RM-625 to be fixed soon. RM-588, RM-504 too within 10 days. If you want me to make it for your RM, please post it in the comments!
This download contains core files too. So, no need of downloading binh24's core files from ever slow FileSonic. Delete Private, Resource, Sys, System, Patches, Data from memory card! Don't backup settings using OVI. Then JAF it!
