    This is a re-release. The reason the last release was pulled was because things that I did not notice during testing were happening. Various applications were crashing and other bugs. Sorry for the issues.

    Thanks:
    Webst3r for helping me with the original black bar port.
    JRummy16 for helping me with the services.jar
    RobStemen for the amazing boot animation
    tgwaste for the framework-res.apk and the custom icons(vibrate and the battery) and the MMS icons for better look on the black status bar.
    To all my beta testers in the #epicrom IRC(If you go to the IRC and are there regularly you will be able to get pre-releases or beta releases of the rom to try and test and report bugs back to me)

    Changelog:
    Bug fixes
    New black notification bar
    Updated stock applications

    What is included:
    Black notification bar.
    HTC Clock Widget
    Motoblur mostly removed
    Modified messaging application(Credit to Cyanogen)
    Chips-Ahoy Cookies :)

    Screen shots are here

    Download is here (You click "here" :p)

    For support please join my IRC chat at http://www.webchat.freenode.net in channel #epicrom.

    Please if you feel it right to, donate. I am trying to get enough money to but a DROIDX to also develop on there. Please if you would like to donate here. Please read the whole page.

    If anyone posts a fix below in the responses please do not attempt to use it or do anything with it until I confirm it is a legitimate fix or if it will do damage to your device.

    I hope you enjoy!

    Agreed...the Blur Email app is one thing (along with the D2 Gallery) that they got right on the D2.

    You could try installing it and see what happens...

    wow we see just alike... because i also like the D2 gallery.. I also updated to the new Gmail that I saw floating around maybe Matt4542 could incorporate that into this rom as well...

    i did try getting the bluremail on the phone..

    I used the adb shell on my pc to push the BlurEmail.apk and BlurEmailEngine.apk to the phone and it worked fine except it only has the options for IMAP and POP3. There is no option to use a MS exchange server. I might need to push another .apk to the phone but for now going back to my nandroid backup... I didn't notice any bugs... but to be fair I installed the ROM last night messed with the BlurEmail thing then went to bed and have only sent a couple text messages since...

    Twins! ;)

    Thanks for posting your efforts...sounds like something is missing from the moto corporate sync engine...I would have thought the blur engine apk would do it (as you obviously did) but must be a few more apks needed.

    I may have time this weekend to do a little experimenting myself, I'll post back if I figure out anything in this area.

    Hi, I installed this ROM and I'm liking it so far, my only issue seems to be that I can't get a calendar widget to appear on any home screen, any idea why this would be? Thanks. (Complete newbie here by the way)

    I went back to 2.0 because my data was going so slowww. I did a wipe and even wiped davlik cache before making the switch. My nandroid worked so it wasnt anything with signal. :(

    Quick question... should I do a factory wipe in recovery before I install this ROM? I'm currently on Tranquility and would liket o use this ROM instead.

    I didn't have to do a wipe. I did have to reset my home screen widgets afterward, though. Nothing major.

    This usually happens if you dont manually mount system after you reboot into clockwork.

    you will also notice that it installs pretty fast if you dont mount it. I missed this part as well the first time I did the install.
