    Was waiting in line at the grocery store and saw it listed. Did a backup and I'm about to flash the rom. Hoping I don't get a new paper weight at the same time.

    A note on themes.

    I have only had the chance to test the 928droid theme with metamorph provided by vmanisme in a previous post. The theme applies fully and looks great in conjunction with the other modifications to this rom.

    If anyone wants to go about testing other themes with this rom please help the community and let us know so we can get full customization out of this bleeding edge release

    Out of the gate this ROM is fast. I did run into a problem though, I can't update google maps from the market. I keep gettin "installation unsuccessful."

    The battery icon is awesome.

    Not sure what is going on but when I try to view the wallpapers all I can see is the grass one, all the others are blank and cause Android Home to stop unexpectedly.

    Trident, is this a possible "fix permissions" issue? I can try it on my test phone. Give me a few. I have seen this with a few of my Moto Droids during ROM testing....

    Sorry for the issues guys.. :(

    This was really hard to build without actually having an Ally. I get mine tomorrow so I'll be able to do a lot of the simple bug smashing before releasing from now on.

    My phone won't even allow me to ''Fix permissions'', I get a ''An error occurred while attempting to run privileged commands!'' Not to worry Trident, I appreciate all of your work on this, keep up the great work and if I can help you out in any way let me know and I will try to help you out.

    Execute "SU" before trying to Fix Permissions.

    I'm having this issue also, but have installed launcherpro to help stop android home force closes. Also my battery icon at the top is reading 60 but in settings its 70.

    I ran the SuperUser Permissions and ROM Manager is listed in the apps list as to allow it. Is this the SU you are talking about? I can tell it to forget its settings and it pops up when i first try to fix the permissions and ask and i allow it yet it still gives error.
