Default [Q] Running 4.4.4, boot animations,clock fc,,Blaze4g,

love this rom, best Ive run since the days of the Sidekick. Couple of questions,

1) icons not turning blue when connected (wifi,tmo,batt), is that normal or a permission set maybe?
2) this had hardware similar to Sidekick, would the Blaxe 4g modem help or hinder the modem in this rom?
3) Im getting a "clock has stopped" notice constantly, I disable in apps but it reappears now n again.
4) Boot animations, are they possible to replace and how. I have a Simpsons one ,in System/Media,as bootanimation.zip but the only thing that happened was it went to "android" word logo (default?). so now the 4.4.4 bootani is gone but boots logo, 4 different zips,same result.
