    Thank god for the Update.zip he includes! lol I JUST installed 7.6 it seems like. I have more Nandroid backups because he rolls stuff out so fast. I'm not complaining...I'm happy to have quick updates...I just can't keep up! :D He builds these faster than I can install them lol

    Well, my benchmarks more closely match 7.6 than when i was running at 1.1ghz. Currently running 1.2ghz and it's a lil early to call it stable. Oh, and I coulda swore the update information hasn't changed since 7.6. Anyone know specifically whats diff, or do I need to clean my contacts?

    Yankee, you have to now click on the link on the first page for the update log.

    It's too bad the live wallpapers aren't interactive - but they're still pretty sweet.

    Of course I knew that, I just was..er..testing you. Yeah, lol. Thanks though.

    Hmm...my build in my About Phone says Bugless Beast 7.8. I was prompted to check that when the change log said you can only OC to 1.1ghz and I'm still on 1.2. Said it was 7.9 in the headline...

    EDIT: Yeah..I'm an idiot. Need to clearly read and not skim.

    live wallpapers are only interactive if you have launcher, without that no interactive wallpapers but launcher doesn't work properly, some bugs that makes it not be worth it for me.

    Or a home screen app that supports it. I have GDE and mine are interactive!:D

    wow I didn't know about that, thanks for telling I'm going to try it since launcher it's full of bugs :-D

    Home++ has not played nicely w/ these and has been force closing way too much lately. Think I may play w/ the Launcher solely unless the wallpapers prove to be too buggy, or unless Home++ gets an update.

    Only difference I see is that Pete removed the 1.2 ghz slot. Which is okay since it wasn't very stable. Well for me at least

    yeah I agree I never used 1.2 anyway ... everything else working well, no lags no issues so far!

    Make sure you empty all the home screens of everything before you install. There were a few people that complained of it being laggy. I removed everything before I installed it and it has run perfect for me.

    the only thing GDE can't do is the Screen change animation like cube with an Animated wallpaper for some reason.:thinking:

    That sucks I don't use it but I'm sure Pete will at the very least spit out a patch with the quickness. He is pretty much a RoM producing machine.

    I don't know if it's affecting this, but Facebook seems to be having issues altogether. Just going from my PC I keep getting error pages.

    Mine wasn't working either but all I did was logout of my account and then log back in and it works fine now.

    just tried that and now it's giving me errors. facebook almost always has some type of problem.

    Sorry to hear that. It seems like every time I install a new rom I have to log out and then log back in and it works. By the way, I just went from 7.4 to 7.9 and I am loving this so far! I was overclocked to 800 but decided to take the plunge and go to 1000 and so far BEAUTIFUL! I love the live wallpapers.

    I am with UBRocked - I had just upgraded to 0.7.6....

    Ahhh, well, according to his tweet, do 0.7.7 or 0.7.8 and then use his update...

    UBRocked VZW Nexus Please!!!

    Okay so I had just upgraded to 7.6 and after trying 7.8, then updating to 7.9...I am back at 7.6 for a few reasons.

    1) I was running at 1.2...and it's gone

    2) Custom theme lost...don't want to do it again cause it wasn't easy...had to move files, use multiple themes, etc.

    3) Facebook doesn't work...went back to 7.6 and my facebook app is working propertly...

    4) I was running at 1.2...and it's gone (I know I already said that but damn...I liked 1.2) :D
