So, I was just wondering, is there a way to get the battery to show in 1% increments instead of 10% because I'm like a freak with my battery and I'm constantly looking at the percentage to see how my battery life is going, but it's kinda hard to do that when it's in 10% increments. It was just thought. I don't mean to be a nuisance or anything.

The 1% mod is a "bad" idea here. I'd rather not tweak the provided battery icon because I want to make this as close to WP7 as I can. Problem with the 1% is I'd have to make the images show like this " 100% [==]- " and I dont think the status bar would show all of the image. Maybe a thought in the future tho. I'm in the process of making a ToolBox and building a launcher from the ground up so we can get away from launcher 7. When I get the ToolBox made, if the images work like stated earlier fit in the status bar, I'll provide an option within it to replace the status bar to "toggle" accurate battery display.

One of the big things I want is the "flat" appeal that I have given thus far as opposed to the "3d" effect of the images(compare Eclipse to GBP7 and you will see what I mean). WP7 doens't have the 3d effects on the buttons n such so that is what I want to make it like. If someone wants to make an alternate "theme" for the phone they are more than welcome, but at this point things will stay the same theme wise and status bar wise until I get the ToolBox and Launmcher made. The toolbox will allow quick replacement of the theme from the default "orange" to w/e the user wants.

NOTICE:
I appologize to everyone about the slower production of GBP7 but my old computer got trashed and I had to replace the HDD in it, thus all my work needs to be started over. I'm still in the process of resetting my tools and getting things back on track, but soon I will start back again. Seeing as to how I won't be dualbooting windows and linux, I'll have to get familiar with the linux side of android development(I need to get signing tools n such), but I think I found what I need. So soon you guys will see some new updates and progress on this.

No one has brought this up, but the current version is v0.5 << There have been several releases of this ROM and it is very stable, so don't let the version discourage you. v1.0 will be when I have the wp7 apps developed from source and everything will be as if it were a wp7 device with an Android OS. Once that has happened, I will start working on Google Integrationk; think of it as a Blur Device but without the bloat and strictly Google only. Facebook and Twitter may come along per user request, but everything will be built from source and watched closely as to how it will operate.

Thanks for all the support and I hope you guys enjoy this ROM.

Thanks for the explanation and everything. I was just curious is all. It's not that big a deal. I appreciate all your work thus far and look forward to see where you'll go with this ROM.

I skimmed through these threads and didnt see any resolve. The only problem I have is the black on black font in gmail and white on white in marketplace. Did this get resolved? If this is fixed, this the only ROM I want on my X2!

Since I use Gmail all the time, the weird color issue is the only reason I haven't played with this rom more.
