    Wow...I had given up. I had tried Velocity, Bionix, and finally tried this one last ROM to solve my phone's freezing, random reboot, and random sluggishness. But this ROM, with it's SuperSU and when I downloaded the BusyBox free app (not the JRummy16 version; Stephen/Stericson), it all started finally working again. Love the look, love the speed, makes using this phone bearable...no...more than bearable until I finally upgrade in May :) Thank you Devs!

    So, say I want to give this ROM a whirl. I've just got one problem. I have the Star Wars: The Old Republic security key app, which (very inconveniently) does not come with a way to restore itself if it gets wiped. Meaning that I would have to call up Bioware customer support and have them remove it from my account (again, because I've had to replace my Ally once). I previously upgraded from Bionix 0.8 to 1.0.0 and kept that app completely intact by not deleting the caches, per a suggestion from rgocal. Worked perfectly. However, I sense potential problems if I decide to switch to StormDroid without deleting caches and data. Titanium Backup apparently doesn't backup something necessary for the app to work after a restore, so that's not an option. Anyone know a way around this problem?

    You should be fine flashing over to SD from Bionix. Nothing in /data anyway.

    Try "Boot Animation Changer", on the market/google play, has a good variety of animations and it's really easy to use.

    Loving this rom thus far, have no complaints :) can't wait for the blue ics theme though; kinda like blue better than red o.0

    Whats going on guys. I used to love the shit out of the ally but sadly mine was stolen from me at work of all places. Would rather have the ally over my current stratosphere... not much Bacon or support. I got spoiled by this community.

    Excellent ROM - had Velocity and started having problems 'progressively' got worse. Switched to this, and has been running solid - no problems - couple 'tweaks' to get everything perfect, and I'm getting 2-3 days out of the battery depending on how much I talk on it --

    Excellent job, devs - thanks again!!!

    Any update on the themes or the fix for the current known bugs such as bluetooth, or the gmail banner being unreadable?

    two questions:

    1. Is anyone else having the problem where the top of the gmail is getting cut off? The 'inbox' and 'account' buttons are only half visible and impossible to press.

    2. Is the flash for the download app coming soon?

    Ok so this rom is running great (have it OC'd 780mhz and the phone is better than ever), but I do have a couple issues. First, I have the same gmail issue where it doesnt show the options at the top of the screen, and I also have a problem where it doesnt show the month when i view the calendar in month view..

    both of these are pretty minor, but one thing thats strange is when i charge my battery not only does my icon disappear (known issue), but my battery level DROPS rather than raises..

    What could cause this? I was thinking of clearing battery stats in recovery, but not sure of any other things this can mess with? Any info is much appreciated.

    Now, another issue I have is that there is no Music app in my launcher? Has anyone else had this problem? This is a big one for me.. I download lots of music from fildo and other sources and need my music lol...

    Any help is much MUCH appreciated!
    Keep up the great work!

    We're working on that. There will be a patch or something at some point that should fix that.

    The disappearing icon is a known bug but I've never heard of it losing power. Try doing a full cycle charge. Drain the battery to below 10% and then charge it all the way plus ten minutes. I have no idea if that will help at all, but I do it frequently.

    We left out a music player to save space. If you need music so bad, go download a music player from the Play Store.

    Hey, guys!

    Thanks for all the work on this project. I've been playing with it on my active Ally and noticed Bluetooth works... mostly. I've paired a standard headset just fine but can't pair my car's hands-free (Sync). Every attempt ends with the Ally saying "The application Settings (process com.android.settings) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. [Force close]" I suspect it has something to do with the required PIN which the other headset does not need.

    Other than that, no real issue. Yeah, the top of the screen in Gmail, but I can still get email just fine so it doesn't bother me. GPS is as accurate as ever, and everything works well for what I do.

    Looking forward to testing v2.1!
