I like the new ROM but why is there a strip of black at the bottom of the screen that is unusable even in full screen mode? Am I missing something? I am new to this so I apologize if I am overlooking something obvious with this.
Also, how do I get the google apps zip to install? Do I need to rename to update.zip & install it like that?
Your first questions answer is that the app may have ads and this ROM blocks ads. So you will see a blank space where the add would be.

That's the launcher. It needs to be restartted. Hit the menu botton and go into settings fro it and restart it, or forsce stop, whatever you have to do. its called zeam launcher if you have to go through the settings. I have a new launcher in the rom I'm working on which will fix these little annoyances.
Ok, at least I know what it is now. I tried both restarting & force quitting it but it still is there. Not a big deal. I will keep an eye out for your updated ROM with the new launcher.
Any feedback on my second question? What's the best method to install the google apps zip?
Ahhh...maybe I was misunderstanding what it was. The area that I was referring to is the app drawer. I had the open apps shortcut but I just dragged it to the app drawer like you said and that fills up the space I was talking about.
If I don't use the app drawer, is it possible to turn it off to "reclaim" that area of the screen?
To install the google apps zip go just drop the file somewhere on your sdcard and go into clockwork recovery and hit install zip. You dont have to rename it to update.zip with clockwork but you do with sprecovery.
