    I did a search but nothing turned up. I also did a quick search on Google with no relevant results. Anyone know where to find info about this?

    Haven't seen any bugs in it yet. Runs fairly smooth. I'll give it four days to a week, though, because that's when problems with ANY new ROMS start to show.

    Lots of reading on that page and although the developer is great at programming, it's difficult to decipher his English at times.

    I have been running his roms since his first one and they are all very very stable. I have yet to find a bug in any of them.

    sorry if this is an uber noob question, but i was wondering if it's really that wrong to install this over what i'm currently running, and using my current recovery? i know that it's recommended to reflash to the stock rom and forcystos 3.8.0 recovery , but man, i'd rather not have to reinstall all my stuff. right now i'm running littlejth 1.2 with joey's recovery 2.1.3. any help would be much appreciated.


    edit: never mind, i went ahead and loaded it all without reflashing and so far so good

    Dang, I'm currently on 2.2. How much improvement is 2.7 comapared to his 2.2 release? Also, I can currently use custom themes with 2.2. Can you use custom themes still with 2.7?

    Has anyone had any problems using this build.prop to fix the market issues?

    http://forum.sdx-developers.com/android-2-1/how-to-access-protect-apps-in-the-market/

    Also, I saw that the "Water" Live wallpaper has been modded??? I like the original so is there anyway to keep it?

    i didn't use his 2.2, so i can't say how it compares. but i've been running the 2.7 since this morning, and it's fast, stable, the 3d gallery works correctly, the video camera is very much improved, the gps locks faster, and my phone just works better period. and i'm running the licorice theme over it with no problems. haven't tried the market fix yet. i think i'll just wait for the developer to address that in his new version since he seems to keep pumping them out so quickly.

    Question. I did a backup in recovery 3.0.8. What exactly does that backup? Can I apply that backup to lighting 2.7? Thanks.

    I have no idea, I've had a bad experience with backing up my system and trying to restore. But I don't think it'll happen again. I've never restored a backup from recovery yet so I have no clue how it will work

    What ROM was the backup done on? If it wasnt a backup on the 2.7 ROM, you dont want to run it on 2.7. The backups should only be run on the ROM that they were backed up on, otherwise you could run into FC's, etc.
