    ^+1 Good luck with that. I've researched it and the best I can tell there isn't one due to the bluetooth stack with Dinc. (Whatever that is). I sure hope I'm wrong.

    if you are rooted, you can load any aosp rom and use the wiimote app in the market. Works good on my phone.

    How do you know if your ROM is AOSP or not? I am using Skyraider 3.5

    Really Cincy? I expected someone that's been around as long as you to know the difference between AOSP/Sense ROMs. Anyways, Skyraider is sense. AOSP is a ROM like C7 or OMGB

    Thats probably why I don't know the difference. I refuse to use any ROM outside of a Sense ROM. I've tried the "non-sense" pun intended ROMS and don't like them at all. I find myself trying to make them look as "sense" as possible and wonder why I go to all the trouble when there are perfectly good sense ROMS that I love out there.

    I've been around and read TONS and there are things I don't understand. ASOP is just one. Another is the difference between zip aligned and not zip aligned. Not only do I not know what it is, I also don't know why it matters.

    AOSP (android open source project) is any rom built from the android source code. MIUI, CM6/7, Lithium, Ruby etc.
    All roms are zip aligned, it's just an archive optimization tool for .apk files.

    I highly recommend trying to "unsense" yourself, don't let it hold you back. There are a lot of very nice alternative UI's out there... MIUI being my favorite.
    Very easily themed (takes longer to download the theme than it does to apply it) can even very easily piece together parts of different themes to make hybrids.

    I've used MIUI it's a fun ROM to play with but not real practical. I like using a launcher not folders or just putting my apps over 10 screens. I've used CM6/7 as well but not for long. I really do find myself installing clocks that look like sense clocks but never work the same, looking for widgets that look like sense. By the time I finish tinkering and personalizing it, it looks like a Sense knock off. I don't fault anyone that likes LP or other launchers with non-sense ROMS but they are not for me. I've tried the new sense and I love the idea of it but it sucks that there are still "phantom calls". Once that is worked out I will likely go with Uber ROM or any Z ROM out there. Until then Skyraider is nice.

    Thanks for the information above. If I read what you are saying correctly Sense ROMS are NOT AOSP?

    Correct. Sense is HTC's skin that they put on top of AOSP to make it "their own". I've always been a huge sense fan myself, but I recently started using LP and I have to be honest, I'm not missing sense at all.

    The iControlpad looks nice, do we have to wait for someone to write an app so it can be used like the Wiimote?

    I find it to be just the opposite, after I used MIUI for a couple months, then I switched to gingerbread for a couple months, I realized I didn't like the app drawer and prefer having my apps in folders and like how I can put apps on the dock (granted I only have maybe 50 apps). I only use 3 screens and one screen is just the calender and power widget. But I do like the htc clock, and "fancy widget" is an awesome alternative. But now I do wonder if I went back to a sense rom if I would still like it as much as I used to.

    AOSP is technically any rom that someone has taken the android source code and compiled for a phone. All other roms are done by taking the source code from HTC (or whoever) and tweaks are made.
