    I am trying to install this but when I select the zip file and click Yes to install, it gets stuck on Installing Update. Has anyone had this issue?

    Another vote for VVM. I just like the button to work in the dialer.

    I'll second for an option to use the blur gallery. Also I know some people like the aosp camera app but I like the widescreen camera the x comes with.

    I'm thinking about jumping on the twitter bandwagon just to follow Fab and some other tech sites, lol.

    This. :) The Blur alarm and desktop clock are fantastic. Oh, and make sure we can add back the weather from blur.... it is the only one that works with the moto dock that I can tell.

    Is there an easy tutorial on changing the words on the pulldown menu like liberty has?

    I gleaned what I could from this post (thanks lynseyw) and edited the eri.xml file before flashing (using a hex editor and 7zip).

    The instructions seem worse than they are, but I didn't use adb to push it. I would assume you could ninjamorph the .xml file but I just did it before even flashing the ROM (Apex that is).

    Changing the "Verizon Wireless" lockscreen text

    Hey guys, the Blur Email and Gallery options are in the customize apps menu already. I'll be sure to add VVM, don't know how that one slipped my mind.

    Keep up the suggestions, thanks!

    Inside the framework-res.apk there is a folder named "res" I believe. Inside that is an XML named "eri" Inside that you can edit the dropdown text. Faber has a tutorial for it on his theme thread, don't have the link on hand.

    once you have actually gotten the pulldown you want its quite simple, just use ninja morph, How-To: Droid in Notification Drop Down Bar - xda-developers that tells how to do it.

    and i think if fab asked kejar how he did the liberty toolbar pulldown edit, he may tell him ^_^ or give him advice or help on it

    hey fab how difficult would it be to theme swype with apex in it?

    say how darkslide is, and where darkslide is on the spacebar, do you think you can do soemthing similar but have apex on it?

    just curious, i love the darkslide swype theme, and keyboard theme, just wondering if you had any ideas of implementing that

    Can you make sure swype is the latest version? I can't go back to the preinstalled dx version now haha.

    No, that sounds right. All that the widget add-on does is is sort widgets from the same program. So if you have Beautiful Widgets, instead of having all of the different types of widgets listed out on the select screen it puts them into one folder which you can then select from on the widget menu. It makes for a much more clean and easier to navigate menu all in all.

    Fab.... if you don't implement a pulldown text editor... can you at least change it to "Apex 1.4.0" or something like that... instead of "Verizon Wireless"...

    Sorry everyone, Apex may get delayed a little, I have to get this hit and run sorted out. If all goes well, I'll have this guy tomorrow.

    Man, that sucks! Sorry to hear about someone hitting your new car! :mad:
