    Awesome :D

    I just hope the fact it's a port doesn't hurt the performance.

    It's called "personal choice". Let's not turn this into an argument for/against SenseUI. For the many users who enjoy it, the possibility of a 2.2 port is major news.

    I wasn't trying to do that Slug :) (if you see there is a smiley there >>> ":p", meaning I was joking....). Was just adding my opinion. Anyway sorry if my comment was about to begin some argument or a flame war. Will refrain further from any personal comments. Again sorry.

    More major would be a nice 2.2 Legend Rom with proper porting. <<<last one I swear :D

    Oh and something to the matter http://bbs.goapk.com/viewthread.php?tid=30011&page=1&extra=#pid270983 (from the VR Irc) should be the Gratia rom :)

    Great news. I like launcher pro better cuz its faster, but its hard to find a comparable replacement for the fast smart sense dialer and the cool sense clock that has a stopwatch, timer, world clock, weather, etc. No other clock widget compares to that feature-full clock. With that said I cant move on from sense

    Feeling the pain. :(

    Elelinux + LaunchPro has been on mine but I really miss the weather/clock widgets and syncing (sad I know, lol.)

    My Froyo Rom certainly wasn't as zippy as 1.5 even tho it was outdated, really looking forward to this.

    I presume the guy is a tester trying the ROM? Hope to see more pics or video hopefully.

    If it really is 2.3 like people have been suggesting, perhaps there's a good chance it's similar to 2.2 and we can run it?

    I became a fan of VillainRom on facebook for this lol. The last post was on monday saying "VR13 is a work in progress!" I hope it comes out this month and I'm sure it most likely will :)

    I think I'll play it safe and watch for Villain Team to release theirs. VR12 is so stable, sense hasnt crashed once since I got it. Plus there seems to be some bugs with the ported one. Or at least I'll just wait for that one to stablelize.
