I wanna start by saying that I am in love with this Rom. GPS works great and locks pretty fast and I didn't have to do any fixes. My 3G data is faster than it was before I installed this Rom. Haven't tested 4G yet but i'll do that when I get home. The same goes for the wifi. I absolutely LOVE the music widget built into the lock screen.

I do have a few questions. Im sure they have probably been answered in one of the 155 pages but I tried searching to no avail.

1. I remember a previous CM rom that I installed on my OG Epic that had notification icons that were animated. (ex. the sms icon kinda spun around and zoomed in). Are these being worked on or were they scrapped?

2. I also remember being able to change the phone answer type in the OG Epic CM Rom. Has this been scrapped also or is it in the works?

Thats all I can think of for now. Other than that everything is great! I cant wait until the theme, icons, dock etc. are fully functional.

Thanks DEV's for your hard work and dedication! Blanca (Thats my phones name) is happy again! LOL

Kernel question for you guys:

I flashed the FDO2 kernel that darchstar himself posted here like 2 weeks ago and for the most part it has worked fine but I have been experiencing occasional LOS that requires me to toggle airplane mode to get rid of. Would you guys suggest I try the FD02 Rogue Repack kernel instead?

Its been low level for me on Fd10 I always thought the modem that was best has been el26. Might be a heck of a lot slower but, on higher modems I can get Los but never need airplane mode to fix. I'm on fd05 modem and it's alright. I know you talking kernel but stock kernel has always been my friend.

I hear what you're saying about the modem potentially being the problem, and that makes sense. However, my modem has remained the same since I first flashed this rom and I have only experienced sporadic LOS since I flashed the FD02 kernel darchstar posted a while ago which leads be to believe this is more kernel then battery related.

1. Was a theme. Cm9 doesn't have theme support... yet

2. I'm sure more customization options will come in time

Never got an answer on this...

Can I use steady hawkin's FD02 CWM kernel on this ROM without breaking anything?

Apparently YES according to numerous posts on the last couple pages. I'm thinking about giving it a shot because I had some LOS with the FD02 kernel darchstar posted a while ago. Of course, now its working perfectly fine so I will hold off until I get another LOS.

Does it improve battery life at all? That's my main concern...

I guess we'll find out after we flash it
