    Do you have to do a wipe and all that stuff or can you intall right over 2.5.2 without any issues?


    Just noticed it is only for sense. Any word on a vanilla update?

    I'll try without wiping first but I don't think it would work. 2.5 to 3.0 sounds like a big step in core OS programming.

    I wish it was vanilla. Still going to give it a go.

    I don't think it looks good at all. I would much prefer using Launcher Pro or ADW over that new home screen replacement.

    The bottom dock bar is terrible.

    Nothing says you can't use those.

    I know but if I am going to use LP or ADW why do I need this? The change made to the home screen and rosie are its main feature.

    Coming from the Droid 1 I think the Sense UI is a little refreshing and the fact that the calendar and bookmarks widget are smaller helps it come very close to my old Droid setup.

    I'm digging the look of the bottom dock. Still wish the phone button was in the middle but I'll get used to that soon enough.

    He has a launcher in there of his own so you can chose whichever you want. I'm using launcher now and keeping Home Switcher to see which I like best. I've been using ADW so we'll see. Flashed King kernal #3 since the rom put it back to #2.

    you may have just convinced me to wait for vanilla, assuming it will come out. I guess i was just excited to try it out.

    I had major problems with the revised home screen locations. Too many spots led to overlapping widgets which in general looked really sloppy. I don't care for the 5 column app drawer, but to each his own. I do like the new dock, I think it's nice and simple. Don't care for the new notification window, it's hard to read in bright atmospheres. Overall I think I'm going to stick with 2.5.2 if no improvements are made. It's a shame, some of the things I loved about 2.5.2 are now gone.

    So does this now come with the kingxkernel #2 or is this one different than the one everyone else reflashed 2.5.2 with?

    I ask because its labeled 18. Kingklick kernel #2

    I cant seem to get my apps to move to my sd card. I just upgraded to skyraider 3.0 and I thought this upgrade would fix those problems. Can someone help? Before I forget, I did upgrade my baseband to 2.0 and it still didnt help.

    I can not be bothered to update and have to set everything up again (did it Saturday) and deal with the chance of boot-loops, etc. Titanium helps a lot, but still have to set everything else up again. I could care less about OCing a 1ghz chipset and already get great performance with apps and Flash. I see nothing in the rom to suggest it is any better than the current 2.52, just that it is newer.

    I will wait for the official release to hit and be modded and then I will update. You folks that do this update stuff every other day must be some compulsive types ;)

    I will wait and let the dust settle :)

    i guess not... just loaded ROM and 1st test of vid cam, the camera made a horrible noise and reboot after 1.5 seconds of vid... 2nd try on vid, no noise... but reboot after 1.5 sec of vid.

    I'm going back to 2.5.2. I like the look of 3.0 but there are enough issues with it to make me scream.

    Rom Manager doesn't acknowledge that I'm a premium member even though I bought it last night.

    Widgets overlap each other.

    The clock I use from Beautiful Widgets is messed up, the back ground gets shrunk so most of the temperature info is barely visible.

    I can't download any HTC widgets, I use the Notes widget a lot.

    Seems much slower than 2.5.2 as well.

    Maybe the update fixes those problems but since Rom Manager thinks I'm still a free loader, I can't get the update.
