As for my issues, my Wifi connection keeps dropping as I am using the device. I have to go back to the Wifi settings and click scan a few times to get the connection back.

Thanks, but I don't see the auto-hide option anywhere in Settings>System. I'm using Hash's #3 ROM with kernel build 6.
For volume, I'm using RubberBigPepper's Volume Control from the market, but I noticed this time around it won't let me position the slider where I want. I had it at the very bottom right over the menubar, but I can't overlap this one so it's right above the time.
