thanks guys glad you like it.
I did a logcat and tracked down the search thing. It also does it if you hit local search in music. I'll be throwing up an update to the theme later, so i'll put the fix for play store in there.
as for the GPS thing, that must be your phone. mine is never on, when i try using anything(weather channel, radios, etc) it cant find me. some phones have their own individual quirks. you might have got one.
Also, when most any rom is first loaded onto these phones, wifi is set to on, and background data and GPS. That's just how it goes. same thing when it came out of the box. So I'd recommend everyone turn those off so your batt doesnt drain quick.
