    I also rooted the "dummies" way recently and am on PlainJane. I do know that this rom is not compatible with live wallpapers.

    Also from what I've gathered, having root doesn't mean you can simply delete the stock apps. There is a .zip file right under the link where you originally downloaded the PlainJane.zip that when flashed will remove the bloat (extra/not-as-useful) stock sense apps.

    I did not lose my lock screen when I flashed this ROM, so I don't know what to tell you there. If Live wallpapers were a main reason for your rooting your phone, I might switch to the new evil eris ROM because I believe that ROM, supports LWP. That migth solve your lock screen issue as well. Dont hold me to it though. Im sure a quick search will find you the answer you need.

    You can use lwp but you just need to use the nexus launcher rather than the sense ui. I have lwp installed on my just so i can show of to friends and family that i have a live wall paper of mario :D
