    Just used the new SMUpdater to root my Droid, but don't like the revert back to the 2.0 unlock screen (half moon swipe). Anyone know if there is a way to change it back to the 2.0.1 left-to-right unlock screen?

    BTW- This makes my Droid freakin' awesome.

    Redo the ROM install, but this time pay more attention to the options that you are choosing. ;)

    Otherwise, you would have to extract the proper 2.0.1 *.jar file (android.policy.jar ... I believe) out of the installation ROM and push it to your DROID in recovery mode.

    You don't have to root all over again, just reinstall the ROM. Or install one of Pete's ROMs. It's all fast and easy now that you are rooted and have sprecovery installed.

    All great now. Thanks for the help.

    Actually the circular movement is more natural. Move your thumb left to right while looking at it, it move in a circular pattern not straight.

    I actually liked the older lock screen but like some of the info on the newer one - :p

    The circular one actually just goes left like the current one. I think they did the circular just for the look - :p

    The sholes 2.0.3 ROM includes the arc swipe by default unless you deselect it. It isn't an overclocked ROM, but SetCPU works well and my Droid is now running at 800 with no problems. MUCH faster transitions. So far it's been bugless for me, but it's only been overnight and an hour at work. Bluetooth, wifi, GPS all work with no problems so far. The multi-touch maps update created probkems for people with this ROM before the maps update came out, because it's running multi-touch before Google updated maps. I suspect there will be more speed bumps once Google releases a browser update to support multi-touchey goodness.

    The weather only shows in Celsius when it's docked at night, though. That's going to be irritating. If I click on it to see the forecast, it is in Fahrenheit.

    And lastly, the audio at full volume crackle is back.

    ahhhh thank youuuu i KNEW i wasn't going crazy! heard a crackle at full volume and i thought, NOOOO! thought it was just a fluke. i hope they fix it.

    also the arc unlock swipe puts it on vibrate mode now instead of silent, which i don't care for.

    It literally takes like 3-4 mins to reflash, just open the program and it will tell you it has already downloaded the rom and that it will use that one. You then select flash and it will load up the screen for 2 mins and then go through the options. But make sure you read them and deselect the ones that you don't want. I seriously have flashed probably 10 times already(long story).
