    Did you get Jelly Bean via root and flashing a new rom?

    root is not required, just recovery and select the jb leaked file (read up on how to preserve root if desired, and all caveats). Wait, isn't there a howto on this forum?

    What's the dock? Is that the home back and multitask buttons?

    The dock appears when I swipe up on the screen and disappears when I swipe up again. The screenshot is with it hidden, but it is the standard dock in Nova Launcher.

    I've kept it simple so far. No changes to the launcher. The background is a live wallpaper, but it changes with the time of day- gets lighter after dawn, and darker as the suns going down.

    So, I'm assuming there is now a built-in screen shot ability? :D

    (There wasn't on my DroidX until I rooted)

    Yup. Hold volume down and power for 2 or 3 seconds.

    You also have to hit both buttons at the same time!

    I need to find a launcher that will hide the home back and recent apps buttons. Anybody know of one?

    No, but I have been hoping it will come soon. It will probably require root though. The navigation buttons are in the SystemUI.apk.

    I've been looking for an excuse to root. That option would do it. Trouble is, unlike my old tbolt, everything in this phone works as is. Makes rooting unnecessary for the most part.

    Made the circles thing with Ultimate Custom Clock Widget.

    Then, I replaced the icons with Desktop Visualizer.

    We'll see how it works with lag and smoothness.

    That's pretty cool. I especially like the dialer!

    All stock still (save for quite a few things disabled). Maybe root for JB is around the corner though :cool:

    Am I the only one with the almost permanent line across my notification bar???? If so I think I need to trade in my phone so many random issues that no one else seems to have...anyways here's mine I like to keep my main screen simplistic, and I got my Xmas wallpaper up

    This month, I decided to switch it up again and change my theme. Inspired by a mycolorscreen.com theme, I made it to go with the jb Google search bar. I'm one of the few who likes the search bar there.

    I'll definitely continue tinkering, too.

    My current setup, based on a mycolorscreen.com theme:

    I'm still tinkering. I'm gonna hit up wallbase later to find more backgrounds.
