V. About & Credits - it is clear

Before installation, make sure you have "allow other sources" set in settings and developer-mode activated.

* Download and transfer the .deb file (thanks to Ammyt & hxka) to your phone.
* Install the .deb file by the usual way (double tap on file).
* Go to application Homescreen. You will see a new icon (Thanks to 3llipsis) at the end of the list and you can see the PDF instruction inside the: /home/user/MyDocs/Documents
* Tap on it and it will ask you for password of devel-su (default: rootme)
* Choose letter you want and press enter (you can write big or small character).

* Run “Create Backup !!!” on your first use of this script, mainly because of Speed Up Transition and Landscape MOD.
* You can choose more of one tweaks separated by one space and press ENTER. (ex: A B D E ... Enter)
* If you choose O or R, choose it at the end
* A and B have automatic refresh and H and I have automatic reboot and if you want to use more tweaks in the same session, just put this letters at the end. Don't use A , B , H and I together.. For example, you want to install A , C , F and D - just put the A at the end: C F D A [hit Enter]

* To uninstall my application, do this by usual way, go to: Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications. Choose N9-QTweak and uninstall it. Another way – long press on N9 QTweak icon on the app homescreen.

  • If you uninstall this app it will leave the Backup files in MyDocs (/home/user/MyDocs/.N9QTweakBackup) and if for some reason you forgotten to restore your tweaks before uninstalling, you can do this manually or only one time by running the one simple command as ROOT: sh /home/user/MyDocs/.N9QTweakBackup/RESTORE . This command:

    1. restore your tweaks to default (except the new IM’s)
    2. Delete this folder (.N9QTweakBackup) from your phone
    3. Refresh your home and lockscreens
  • To update to new version, just install new .deb file.
Enjoy :D
