    Lol @ DSP manager FCing - that was hilarious - I remember when it FCd constantly on my DROID before they finally got it working correctly with GB....

    Nice to see CM7 running on a BIONIC though - that means:

    1. we have recovery
    2. we have a bootloader bypass
    3. Here come the ROMs!

    But first he needs to release the bootstrap.

    The developers are amazing! I am so excited to be getting some CM loveliness on my new toy! You guys are awesome.

    He'll release the bootstrap once a working ROM is in place. For now, all I want is custom Recovery and the ability to make a Nandroid backup so I can really start playing on removing some of the bloat.

    Quick n00b question. If I ever mess with Custom Roms, but at a later date decide I want it stock again, will there be a flash for that? Im pretty sure, just wanna re-confirm.

    I don't know jack yet about Android phones and customizing, however, I've always been one to do that with my old Blackberry :p

    It's exciting to see a 2init ROM in action, but if some of the battery life woes of 2init carry over to the Bionic I would rather see some Blur-Based Bionic roms. Not to mention I really like alot of the blur apps. Especially the dialer.

    Ripping the blur apps out of the stock rom will be simple.

    Hell, I know that folks at XDA are already working on deodexing the stock files as it is. Since bootstrapped CWM Recovery is now a go, and since I, thanks to Joe and others, have a nice long list of what can and cannot be removed, I'm betting that a 'stock' Deodexed decrapified ROM should be right around the corner....

    Even if I have to spend all weekend making the damned thing myself

    Decrapified...is that the technical term?

    @ECHO ON!!! <-- ;)

    I stopped using DSP a long time ago anyway. DSP blows, IMO. (That is, unless it's entirely sorted out by now.) I use "Equalizer" from the Market, and just LOVE it!

    DSP on CM7 works like a champ on my OG DROID. Other than using memory and such, it's great.

    But Equalizer (paid) has cool little preset widgets, and programmable presets and other goodies. You really should check it out.

    OK, I'll go look.

    Loving the market on the web look and feel - being able to remotely install apps to my phone just friggin rocks.
