2nd i posted a reply to your problem back some pages, did you follow that?
3rd, either way, if you were rooted before, yes a wipe should clear any bugs ,i am running 2.0.2 fine. if u used this to root, follow my earlier post.
the widgits u see are needed by rom, just clear them from your desktop and you will never notice them , exclude bright control from any task killer also.
hope this helps
I not sure if this has been answered yet...after your phone is rooted and its running the sholes mod, will you still be able to download and install factory updates..ie when flash 10 or the official 2.1 software comes out?
