Just wanted to add my thanks, and I hope that you keep adding your tips to this post. I have almost two years left with my infuse, and I am in the planning stages of my own rom with this post as one of my stepping stones. I am hoping to be able to fill a small part of the void as you experienced devs move on to other phones. Hope you don't mind me asking for tips and tricks as I start getting up to my elbows in code.
