I've been trying to get a full Ubuntu install on an external USB3 SSD, but I could never make it boot. It turns out the files on the EFI partition have to be renamed. If one knows how to do that, the rest is quite simple.
I've been experimenting with a new renderer which would look a bit more realistic. Also, I'm planning to have a different kind of night mode: instead of having a black background, the overal contrast will be decreased and a few light effects will be added so as to simulate reading under the light of a night lamp.
Of course, there will be an option to switch back to the classic renderer as well.
I've been working on a custom GUI for Albite 3 which would be a lot slicker, faster and far more useable than what Java Mobile provides by default. The graphics content mainly comes from Android 2.x, though there are some thematic touches from ICS.
