    Sorry, can't help you...

    For others waiting for this update, there is still no auto-backlighting.

    I think people are confusing "Live Wallpapers". The wallpapers DO present themselves (and animate), however the stock live wallpapers don't have screen interaction like they do on Nexus One...

    I'm going to give .5 a shot tonight (currently on .3)

    No issues with V.05 in regards to live wallpapers. I have Chevy's 1.2 kernal installed with the smoke glass theme. My phone is running great. You probably already tried it but try rebooting or pulling the battery out and see if that helps any. Or reinstall the ROM.

    Live wallpapers work fine for me too. The new launcher+ is awesome. Being able to pick how many home screens is great

    I'm running 7.6 right now. I think I'll take the plunge and try .5.

    Installed BB .5, then Chevy's 1.2 kernal, then SmokedGlass.

    Everything's running fine. The only issue I've ran into is the screen isn't as responsive, especially at the app drawer. I have to press it a couple times to get it to pop out. Anyone else?

    Also no dedicated Alarm app. I found you can get to it through the Clock app though.

    I think screen responsiveness issues like that are related to the kernal. You might want to give a different one a shot. I am using chevys 1.25 and have no issues

    Thanks! Works tons better now. Touch is responsive as always again.

    Only lag I see is when doing the screen switcher. A bit slow with that one. Otherwise, everything's solid so far. Getting everything back to normal so I'll report more if I find it.

    I've loaded V0.5 and I'm having no problems once I loaded Chevys kernal. I also loaded Smoked Glass. Everythins is running smooth.
