    - Deodexed System for applying themes
    - Apps2SD (credit ChrisSoyars)
    - Native IM App
    - Longer Duration between wifi scans
    - LauncherPro (IMO best launcher on the Market)
    - Compcache (credit to Cyanogen)
    - HQ Youtube
    - HQ Video Recording
    - Custom Scripts (Listed Below)
    - Webkit (credit Cyanogen)

    I've been running this for about 6 hours today, I do like it as I have been running Steam 3.x for about 2 weeks. It has nice additions, I'm sure many will appreciate the Apps2SD! I should note that I do not know what the Webkit is yet, admittedly this may have changed my judgment if I spent more time with it.)

    I have switched back to BBv1 as it is just too damn fast not to use! Not only was there a difference in my SetCPU ms benchmark scores (of course there was, no biggie) but more importantly, the speed difference was noticeable during normal operation; mostly during screen transitions. As soon as more themes are out for Steam 4.x (like dark edge blue), I will try it again. Till then, I'm back on the beast.
