    I believe it is fully functional and is one of the most popular roms right now. That said, you don't even have to tinker with the overclock as its built into the kernel.

    I have been running 2.7 since it came out. It seems to work pretty well. Very smooth and no issues that I have come across.

    I tested it a little bit it seems to be working just fine. Running darch's 2.2 atm, might as well run that, battery life is better and everything works except the camera preview.

    The only real keyboard lag I get is with handcent when replying to a quick message (the one that pops up on screen). Otherwise, no lag for me.

    You do not have to install that recovery image. I am running RA 1.6.2 with no problems.

    You will not have the market place or any other "google" apps until you flash the "google shitz" that he has there.

    Correct, you are already rooted, you do not have to install that recovery image.

    Currently still running Darch2.7. As for removing those apps, you will remove them using adb. It is the same concept as pushing/pulling, but with different commands.

    Basically you would do the following:

    adb remount
    adb shell
    cd /system/app/
    ls (*Note, this will show you what all is in the current directory you are in)
    rm nameofapk.apk

    That is it. Hope that makes sense for ya.

    ccapasso, do you know how i can get my visual voicemail back? you probably know already that when you get a voicemail you get both a sms text and a vm notification. i read on xda to get rid of the sms text notification, i was suppose to call the number that was on the sms text which was 408-970-0000 and after the prompt to press 2. well i accidently pressed #1 and now i dont get any visual voicemail notifications at all. just a sms text telling me i have a voicemail. now i have to call that number everytime i want to check my voicemail. please let me know if this can be fixed. thanks!

    I see that you fixed your VVM. Good to hear. I have been using google voice for a while now and haven't had to worry about Sprint VVM.

    Can't update prl from an aosp rom, that's the one benefit of using Dense UI, you can update all that from it.

    ##775# does absolutely nothing for me. Just sits there, as if waiting for another entry on the keypad.
