    Greetings.

    I rooted my 3 day old Evo over the weekend with a few hiccups. I'm now running CM6 and am reasonably pleased with everything. My question is, now what?

    I have better battery life, no bloatware, wifi tether (doesn't work - i'll figure it out in due time) and the usual stuff, but nothing really stands out right now. Any ideas for cool stuff I can do with my phone? Apps, hacks etc... I might try a different ROM later today just for kicks, but so far, not seeing anything special.

    Also, coming from an iphone, I find that I've ended up making my Launcher Pro plus home screen look very iphonish. Any ideas on how to spruce that up? I'm looking at threads elsewhere for themes and the like, but just looking for out-of-the-box ideas.

    Brrrrr, feels like the dark days. Well, don't have too many widgets because they chomp on the battery. Which ones can I use anyway?

    Loose the battery meter,CM has the option to add the battery %.WiFi tether should work with no problem,go to Wireless & Networks,Hotspot and it should work.
