Hello Radek and Team,

Just flashed v26 and I've got a totally new FR in my hands. Thanks alot 

Just one thing: Is it possible that the icon for "missed phone" calls is 
- well - missing? I'm using that new theme and it displays an icon for 
missed text-messages. If I miss a call there's just a blank space and 
the call counter.
