I use adwlauncher, v6 doesn't seem to work with it. I get a lot of "not found" prompts instead of what I should be getting. I'm going to test out launcherpro and zeam
I'm not sure if/why the file size matters, but to answer your question the c800 recovery image is quite a bit bulkier that the e739 from what I can tell because there are literally more files. There are double the .rc files and such.
I'm still moving, doing the big push this weekend, so hope to get my build environment back up by next thursday,,nobody else wants to do it along with me?
