* Please Note: This installation removes the Cingular 7100 series theme that was previously available in the CSL 4.1 installation, which was designed for the EDGE-based 7130 handheld due out shortly from RIM/Cingular.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
