    Has anyone used or tried the following?

    Memory parameter augmentation (v6 supercharger style scripts and such)

    CPU under clocking and profiles

    Link2sd style apps2sd

    Dalvik cache increasing and linking to SD

    Font editing apps

    Modifying the status bar apk

    Modifying the battery charging animation files

    Modifying the Shutdown files

    Lockscreen apps

    ....

    I know that I can replace some system apps with market apps and add market apps to /system/app so they survive a factory reset. (Browser for dolphin HD, added root explorer and a few others though some don't work a lot do.)

    But I'm wondering about the other stuff.

    I use v6. Works perfect (remember to set the supercharger file in /data to root and run at boot).

    I've been able to change the font.

    I have not been able to change battery animation yet, they are in qmg format.

    Able to underclock via setcpu and also rom toolbox.

    I've changed the shutdown animation and sound also.

    More important is getting a custom kernel developed. Then we will have standard animation file support. Cwm is secondary, as we can pretty much do everything through Odin, it just takes a couple extra steps.

    Cwm would definitely make things a bit easier though.

    Had a question about this: I didnt know I was supposed to put this anywhere, I thought it just put it's self where it needed to be. Should I put the pdf in data or the v6 folder that is created?

    After you run the v6 script it puts a file called 99supercharger.sh in the data folder. You have to navigate to it in script manager, click it, choose the options root and boot, then run it.

    This step is necessary because we are on a stock rom. It tells script manager to run v6 at boot, making your settings stick.

    Edit : its in the data folder on your phone.

    It should look like this in script manager when you go to the file in the /data folder -
