THP never ceases to amaze me. Just when I thought he had out done himself with apkenv, he has brought the Harmattan community Cyclotron. The app (well mod really) takes the swipe to a new level, by allowing the user to swipe diagonally from the status bar to switch between apps. I can’t really do the app justice, so just watch the video below.

    So much potential wasted, sad.

    Oh. My. God. What a shame that my N9 is my ONLY phone and I’m too chicken to risk having to reflash it (I haven’t even incepted it…)

      I bought my N9 last Thursday. Took a while, but incepting it is brilliant. It’s not even that hard, one of the helpful members on the maemo forums pointed me in the direction of N9 Tweak Tool, which has bucketloads of tweaks via scripts and mods in one easy to use package.

      • Gasbond

        Can you tell me how to incept it? it is hard or what?

        • Ed

          First of all make sure you’re using PR1.3. If not, update or flash it.

          Then allow other sources (in installation) and activate developer mode.

          Download this:

          Install it.

          Run the app (make sure you’re connected to the net).
          It will ask you to download a pdf either in English or Russian.

          Create a backup [tweak K]. After this completes, select [tweak EE] and follow the instructions to install inception and aegisctl.

          Need any more help, don’t hesitate to ask.

    • Gasbond

      Go get one fast man, I had a black 16 GB N9 for nearly one year, then about amonth ago I got a new white one, it is really one of the best phones ever, and remember that it is a once in a lifetime, it is the last Nseries device,it is an extremely unique device, it can do almost everything:)
