I have not tried these with fission or rubix yet but in the past I have used their stuff over roms with and without themes and its worked fine

In Root Explorer, which is the battery .apk that I want to confirm exists before modding it with metamorph?

I'm not too sure the names of the files in root explorer as I usually just install my new one over my old one without messing with the files....did you rename it .bak or did you delete through root explorer?

I didn't do either. I just unzipped it through metamorph and it worked fine.

You don't - I was just trying to follow the instructions on the droidpirate site, where they tell you to make sure the file you are trying to mod is present in the system/app folder of your phone. When I realized that was all they were using root explorer for, I skipped that and just unzipped it through metamorph.

Finally! Got my issues resolved. I needed Voice Search by Google not Google Voice. And Google maps allowed to use GPS. Now I am going to make a back up of this so I can get back here if something goes south on me!

Has anyone figured out how or know if it is possible to use other GPS apps besides Google Maps with this ROM? I use Google Maps daily for work and like having VZ Nav and Navigon as backups in case there is a street Google Maps doesn't have yet. VZ Nav will keep telling me I don't have my GPS turned on and Navigon just keeps searching.....

Same issue here, but then it stays at 60% for the next 6 hrs. Here is my battery progression today.

Unplug, 100%
Absolutely no use until needed to text 2hrs after unpluggin, 80%.
Been in meetings all day and no usuage, 60% after about 4hrs unplugged.
4hrs later still at 60%.

Don't know, but I don't really feel that the battery is worse, just the indicator is doing something weird.

That might be true. I keep thinking my battery is draining faster but then there will be periods where it lasts longer than it should. I do feel like once it gets down to around 30-20 it goes really fast. When I see that 20%, it's down to zero in like an hour.

Is it normal that Need For Speed still shows up in my app drawer? I went into Root Explorer to see if there was anything I wanted to rename, and there weren't any of the apps on the "safe to remove" list for removing bloatware - ok, makes sense since this is blurless rom and has unnecessary apps removed. But Need For Speed is still in my app drawer, even though it's not in my system/app folder.
