    So I have been jumping back and forth between Cyanogen and Bugless and I have to say that Bugless as been the smoothest and most stable for me. However I do miss a couple things from Cyanogen and was wondering if there was a way to add specific items to Petes ROM. Namely:
    -Battery percentage in top bar
    -reboot option as well as turn off in the phone options
    -apps to sd...

    Any ideas would be awesome!

    I pushed the apk for spareparts and music from cyanogenmod onto BB and they work.

    I don't know if you can do the same thing for the things that give you the restart. I doubt the apps to SD would work. I've only tried cyanogenmod once for like a day. I like BB too much. I don't use apps to SD, my card is filled with music.

    where? I am using BB 1.1 with smoked glass and i cant find a setting to add the percentage. I looked all over spare parts and cant find it. Where did you find that option?

    I just pulled these apk's from CM and replaced the apk's in the NexBeast update.zip and reflashed. The apps are there and show the desired options, but do not give any of the desired functionality.

    Not an option in the Smoked Glass theme for 1.1 unfortunately.

    I just used metamorph and applied a different battery icon. I like the round one so this is the one I used (it was originally created by switchblade5984 modded by loumarjr to change color as well as show the battery percent.) Then I used Metamorph to apply it over my already applied Smoked Glass theme. Voila.

    You can also probably find a regular icon that shows percentage if you look around a bit.

    awesome! i didnt even think to use metamorph but it worked great. I am going to hunt down one similar to the one used in CM but thats for putting me in the right direction.

    The apps to sd and shutdown probably have, xbin files, or someone stuff besides the apk that is needed for it to work.

    I did not put the apks into the update.zip I extracted them out of cyanogenmod, and then used terminal emulator to copy them over the current ones on the system.

    The reboot function is something in the coding that programmers other than cyanogen can't do at this point. I was told something to this effect once recently.

    The advanced phone options can be found in XDA forums and it is pretty simple to replace and load. The picture ID is a bit smaller thank NexBeast though (not sure about BB v1.1).
    Bear in mind I only had BBv1.1 on for a day so I don't remember the phone functionality and if he added these advanced features that Cyan has.

    I tried the spare parts and music apks. I flashed them and tried copying them to system. I even tried using scripts to switch the app. Still can't get my music player to skip tracks while sleeping or use the spare parts options. I am not overly concerned with the spare parts stuff, I was just seeing if I could get it to work. The music thing would be cool though.

    It's working for me using Smoked Glass on 1.1. I didn't download BB from Rom Manager though ... that one is incomplete for some reason. I went to Pete's original post to download the Rom, then ran through Clockwork Recovery. Also downloaded the themes from Pete's original post. Have had no problems or missing features since installing that way.

    So when you loaded it from the zip file you got the option in spare parts to add in the percentage to the battery? If so I am downloading it right now...

    No, it isn't an option in spare parts that I found. It just appears.

    I dont know why when i loaded bugless it doesnt show the time up there but using metamorph works pretty well for me. I might have to try the modified phone apk as well.
