If all you do is use standard theme chooser themes, then yeah, ODEX is probably your best bet

The only reason non-odex is good for heavy theming is that ODEX roms don't allow for statusbar transparency (like are found in certain theme chooser themes), and certain other changes that requires the classes.dex file in the systemui.apk (which ODEX does not have).

Thanks! Good info.

the down direction for my trackball isn't working...got in to recovery and was like WAAAAAAAT!? lol. a little pivoting force placed on my usb connection while plugged in - tried the whole range to find the right one - and then it worked but only when i hold that little bit of force on it.

haha, turns out i can even just push down and off of my usb cable to move the selection down (instead of rolling the trackball). it's not perfect, but humorous.

the things we do to keep our erii alive - and using the freshest GSB...

You should install ScaryAlien's alternate version of Amon_RA that allows you to use the hardware keys to move up and down and select as well as the trackball.

See http://androidforums.com/eris-all-th...-required.html (use Scenario 3).

I probably don't want to hear the answer to this, but can I just flash this on top of 3.8 or do I have to wipe and reinstall gapps, apps, and settings?

Wipe data and dalvik like it says, just to be safe. Apps should redownload automatically. But yes you'll have to redo settings. took me about 4hrs. :P

Hmm, would definitely need a logcat of you trying to connect. Not sure if I've ever used the feature, so I'm not totally sure what you're talking about. Anyone else experiencing this?

Yorb would be correct lol. 4.0 has a totally different framework so it'd be wise to start fresh

Okay, so I don't know what's going on here, but there have been some apps show up in the market that used to work with my phone on previous versions of this ROM and on other ROMs, but now say they are incompatible with my phone. What's going on. So far there have been two, but I am still trying to restore everything to the way I had it and have about 32 apps left to remember and redownload since the TB backups of the same apps in xtrSENSE don't work in GSB. Does anyone have a working apk for either Ministry School Timer or Google+ I could get from you?

MongooseHelix posted a working (older) version to Google+ on CS's forum in response to the newest version not working with the Eris. Here's a link to the post...

4.0 odex working well so far.

Did the full wipe/reinstall. The market didn't install all of my apps, but after an hour of manually installing them they're all here... at least the ones I actually use (housekeeping is good). Installed CS's HTC-IME-MOD keyboard (have come to like it better than the stock gingerbread version--larger keys for our tiny screen).

Working well and feeling a bit snappier than 3.8
Thx, Shed!

The ring lockscreen is amazing. Love getting to my most important apps without having to unlock and go it.

Thanks workshed.
