    Well, most of the time when you flash it downloads your apps from the market. So I would guess all those apps have at least 10X the number of downloads they wouldn't otherwise have. I'd think updates also impacts that number. I don't know if Google filters that by unique users or actual downloads.

    I mean, Titanium Backup and Set CPU are/were almost required apps for rooters, so even 2% would be @ 1M users.

    No chance those are uniques.

    plus those three are in the 50,000 to 250,000 downloads range, so that's not saying much...could be 50,000 downloads or 250,000 or anywhere in between...and i'm sure the same 50,000-250,000 who download setcpu are downloading titanium. it's not as if a whole new group of 50,000 are downloading each

    i'd say less than 1%

    Yeah, I'm not going to argue <1% or <2%. Heck, I bet the numbers using replacement launchers aren't even that high, 20% tops but would be interesting to look at the numbers.
