btw. not sure if it made a difference or not but i did flash the superuser fix immediately after flashing the rom before first reboot. and of course all is well.
thanks again DEVS!!!
rom very stable so far. flashed like butter. seems very fast. no wifi issues. good theming. i like the gingerbread keyboard (coolest one i've seen). can't comment on battery but i'm not expecting to be overly impressed (as i never am). honestly lots of good roms out there right now thanks bigfau and dman. it's so cool to have those kinds of options and any of these roms are very stable and can be run exclusively. my only hangup is that i'm a flash whore and even though nothing's broke, i keep fixing. lol. i really am going to hang on to this one for a while as it seems like it should be sufficient to do that.
