SMILE It's Not Illegal Yet
Was using Eclipse and decided to give this a shot. Have used CM7 on an OD and was happy with the build so I figured I had nothing to lose. I had no issues getting things set up and so far its running great! Thank you everyone who has done the hard work getting this working on the DX2!
I know this is like a child being told not to do something and then asking if they can do it anyway, but can I remove Rom Manager w/o breaking anything? Its stated not to use it because it doesn't work and is just part of the CM7 package by default so it would be nice to remove it all together. Also, can I remove ADW if I use ADW EX (Or LP+ if the rewrite ever gets done)?
Edit 3: I took the plunge and did it anyway, So far I had no issues after getting rid of Rom Manager, ADW (Used ADW EX) and the stock file manager (Used Root explorer).
Things I have noticed: Reboot does not give the option to reboot into recovery, you must use the BSR icon instead of any system menu shortcuts. This is likely because this build uses a different BSR then stock CM7. Not a big deal.
The pull down toggles, and customization of those toggles is amazing. I only wish there was a setting to resize the buttons slimmer (so more fit on the screen w/o scrolling) and taller (so they are not so tiny). Again, not a huge deal and in its current state is certainly better then any other Rom I have used.
She is FAST. Faster then ANY Rom I have used on the DX and DX2. Actually I really can't put into words how fast this device is running other then you will not be able to keep up with your screen tapping. Nearly instant response. Note that I have not installed any apps yet and 90% of the speed and random reboot issues I have usually occur AFTER installing a bunch of apps.
Will report back on the random reboot issue. I was still getting these with Eclipse though it was less annoying because the times I was sleeping I did not get woken up with the obnoxious "DROID!" boot audio. If the random reboots stop then I will be 100% convinced they were directly related to Moto's bastardization of the Android OS.
EDIT: If you turn off the boot animation with this [CM7] build you can get it to start from a cold boot in under 15 seconds! I do however miss the Eclipse reboot screen; man they did a really nice job with the animation in that Rom.
EDIT 2: WOOT Can finally change the device Host Name! No longer will my networks firewall report the phone as "android_device_asjkdhfkajsh5342" !!! I have no idea why this option is not included in Moto's Roms.
Edit 4: First Issue but its not a huge deal. If you turn off "USB Debugging" under Applications-> Development, the next time you reboot it will be turned back on by default. Not sure why it refuses to save this setting. It will turn it off but every reboot you will have to go back into settings and do it again.
