I have been using my SGV for just about 2 weeks now. I love this phone!!! I rooted it last week with every intention of flashing the first ROM a Dev threw at us, but I am really liking the phone the way it is. I installed ROM Toolbox and run the CPU governor as Performance and I/O CFG. Only a few things that I would like to change is remove bloatware, i.e. Gmail etc. and WiFi tethering. Any tips or tricks to do either? Also, I have a few apps that I enjoy and thought I would share in no particular order. 1. DirecTV Remote Pro 2. ROM Toolbox Pro 3. Set DNS Pro 4. Apex Launcher Pro using the Elegance theme. 5. Live365 Mobile App 6. Mobile Signal Widget Pro 7. Battery Widget Plus 8. Clean Master I am am true believer of supporting app developers and try to use the Pro or Plus versions.
