    * Droid: Fix for 50% signal loss reporting bug on Motorola Droid (Boyd Bischke) sounds interesting. Otherwise, probably won't switch from SS3.2 unless people rave.

    I was running into some issues with so that's the only reason I decided to try 5.0.7. So, after a long download over 3G, I upgraded (without wiping the cache).

    I agree with the poster above that it seems much faster than I'm running comfortably at 600 MHZ and don't have an overclocking kernel loaded right now.

    In, when I streamed pandora or last.fm, the connection would drop after a certain amount of time. Then, the phone would immediately reset. At work, I'm on the fringe of 3G and 1X service, so that probably didn't help.

    In any case, things seem to be working much more nicely in 5.0.7. I've been streaming all morning without incident whereas in the prior version, I was reseting after 15-20 minutes. Now, the connection drops are just drops in connectivity and not linked to a reset.

    Overall I'm very pleased with the 2 hours I've been using 5.0.7

    It could also because they disabled V8

    The new options for changing colors in spare parts are pretty damn cool. You have to reboot for the changes to take effect though

    I haven't played with Koush's ROMs for a while but I will give this one a try. Things have been running too smoothly with NexBeast and I am once again bored. I am sure once I get this one settled in the 2.2's will be available :eek:

    Just a warning, this will not work with any of the themes out there for it is too big of a change. So if you are using a theme and want to keep it you will have to wait a few days for the themers to update...

    So should I run bekit 800 mhz low voltage or leave the kernal that came with this one? Maybe run the LV kernal at 700 mhz? Or would that be too sluggish?

    just try some stuff out and see what works. I am running bekit 1.2 lv but I run everything at 1.2

    Running super smoothe and cool (temp wise). I used Fabs themed Launcher Pro because I dont like the Launcher2 and the 3D app drawer. Its running flawless right now. I dont know how to enable Apps2SD, still trying to figure it out.

    Heres the Launcher Pro. Its an app in the market, Fab just themed it. Looks much better to me. Has the zoom out feature from HTC Sense.

    Here's another pic. Tapatalk only allows me to upload one at a time or it'll force close. Sucks lol. You can find it over at "Themed ROM NexBeast V1.0.1." You can download the .apk on the first page. Look for Themed Launcher Pro.

    Launcher Pro looks like Helix Launcher.

    What's the difference? Also, I can't figure out how to get Helix Launcher to show up. Just default.

    Long story short, its similar. In my opinion its way way smoother. You can't customize the four icons yet, but I use all of them. Plus the zoom out feature, I like that as well.

    As far as getting Helix to show up, are you using what's preinstalled or did you install Helix?

    Coming from NexBeast and I'm extremely pleased with this new CM. Running on the P3 1Ghz kernel and it seems on par, speed and response wise, as NexBeast. Great work!!

    Only small problem I've found so far is that JuiceDefender crashes as soon as its launched, but a small price to pay for such a smooth ROM. Thanks for all your hard work!

    Restoring from Titanium Backup.

    I'll try installing from Market and then restoring the settings from TiBa.

    I read somewhere that data needs to be wiped from your home launcher apps and defaults cleared before installing this ROM.

    Do you guys have compcache enabled?

    I am curious as to how that affects the performance :D

    When you wipe data, it clears defaults. I always wipe before installing.
