    Don't like the new Velocity theme? Flash this just like you would flash a kernel. Do not apply over anything other than Velocity stock theme!

    Flash this just like a kernel. You must reboot into recovery once more after installing to wipe your cache.

    Thank you so much, download just finished and will be flashing.

    Does the Apps2SD feature require a class 6 SDcard? I think the one included with the phone is a class 4 and I read somewhere that it requires a class 6.

    If I format my SDcard to ext3, Windows will no longer recognize it, correct?

    It's best to have a class 6, but it will work with lower class cards as well.

    Will Windows fail to recognize my SDcard via the USB cord if I format to ext3 for the Apps2SD feature to function?

    Nope. It will still see it.

    I did notice one thing just now. With the flashlight app if you close it by clicking home the front LED will still blink but if you exit it with the back button it will stop blinking.

    Just wanted to throw that out there.

    "-lwp remove or restore Live Wallpaper apps"

    This script appears to have a type in the mount command. Have to type "sys -rw" first to mount the drive as read-write.

    All previous releases I was able to download directly from my phone, a little let down that I am not able to do so with this version.

    Also, I will be releasing a theme for this within the next week or so if you aren't feeling the way it looks!

    Thanks for your hardwork Trident.

    Thanks so much! This is amazing! Just a few questions. So im running velocity .3 with the turbo 4 and i have my 16 gb sdcard partitioned. How do i install apps off of my sdcard wen transfered from my pc? i used to use thinkfree office. I tried using the terminal and found the files on my sdcard but when i tried running the .apk files, i got permission denied. The superuser app is allowing terminal su permission of course. How can i install these apps? Specifically, im trying to install setcpu downloaded from ppcwarez instead of paying for it.

    Which ROM are you using?? Did you go back to V.2 ??

    I miss the transparent status bar but needed the APPs2SD so this is a winner so far. At this point, all my APPs are redownloaded and working perfectly. Google Voice has a bug that the first attempt doesn't play the voicemail through the speaker phone. GPS still seems to take about 4 minutes to find me, but that's not a Velocity issue.

    So far so good Velocity...thank you

    I restored back to Velocity 0.2

    0.3 ran a bit hotter on my Ally and seemed a bit quarky...
