First wanted to say that this is a great ROM! Competes with minco for best batt life for me but has MUCH more customizability than minco .

Second is that GPS is not locking on 2.0 where 1.0 worked fine...anyone else having this problem?

Thanks MyComputerDoctor for the ROM!

I flashed 2.0 over the beta1 with cache/dalvik/system wipes and just fired up Google Maps for the 1st time. It got GPS lock from inside my office within about 10-15 seconds (my desk is about 15' away from the nearest window).

I flashed the Rom this evening. I've been playing around with it for the last half an hour or so...

Most of the stuff works.

Bugs:

had a bit of a bug with the softkeys. After adding a 4th key and then removing it, then restoring defaults.. Home button wouldn't bring up google now ring... had to swipe up before it appeared.

Also as one poster noted... the "use light theme" option in the text settings doesn't work... no matter what the Text app is dark... even after a reboot.


Other thoughts:

1.Boot animation isn't as smooth as it should be, not sure if you're using low-res images or if it's the animation itself but it's not as crisp as I think it should be.

2. Your custom Icons and dark theme is good, but it would be nice to have the default jellybean theme as an option.. Perhaps used team baked dark Gapps for those who want them and stock JB for those who don't...

3. don't know if you went out of your way to make it so difficult to change your phone, text, browser, & Contacts apps but Cm10 themes can't change them. Launcher theme engine can't change them.. have to do it manually.


Final thoughts. you're on the right track, but what you might see as "signature" features of your ROM (Dark text app, custom icons that are hard to change) i just see as someone making it difficult for me to make it MY phone... You have a good base.. now let me make it mine. that's what customizations are for right?

Thanks again for all of your hard work.
Unfortunately, the inverted portions of the apps are an all or nothing modification. The changes are coded into my source and to change it if would have to have separate builds or branches which would take to long to work with.

I appreciate the bug report but if I start adding to many fully backwards compatible options that's when the real bugs begin and loss of speed and fluidity comes in. I am building this ROM to my liking and there will always be complaints no matter what. I have learned this from my several years of development and through trials and tribulations I have learned to pick a game plan and stick with it.

I'm loving the ROM. Please keep it up.

Just a few things from this post,

1. True about the boot animation for me,
Not the biggest deal though.

2. However, not true about Aokp and Cm9 10 themes for me. On Red Blast in theme engine and the things you say are not themed are indeed themed, for me at least HA.

OP thank you one again.
