    157 running like a champ. Down loaded 159 and will install later. As far as wiping ...yes every time. It takes only minutes to set back up.

    YES.

    gapps install to /system, so if you re-install, you will need to re-install gapps as well (/system always gets wiped on a rom install). You don't need to upgrade gapps, but you may as well.

    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    I love how being wrong always ends up with me learning something new and interesting. :-)

    I know it formats /system when it installs, because my custom ringtones, notifications, and manually installed apps get wiped out. So I looked at the installer script (updater-script in the zip file)

    It starts by extracting and running backuptool.sh, a script that I wasn't aware of until just now. That tool will make a backup copy of certain system apps into tmp, and re-install them into /system automatically (which includes the google apps). It also looks in /etc/custom_backup_list.txt to find apps.

    This is actually a really cool discovery, I'm not gonna lie. I think I'm going to be able to modify that custom backup list to make CM hang onto my ringtones and WaveSecure for me!

    I've always reflashed gapps after the nightly update. Doesn't flashing clean out the gapps (like maps and gmail) which are in /system?

    And my answer appeared while I was typing this. !!

    Thanks for pointing that out. I thought I was going insane because I know I didnt install gapps and yet they were there, lol. If you do edit the script, would you mind dropping a hint on how to do it? Or is it very simple?

    It's very simple. Just create a file named /etc/custom_backup_list.txt and edit it to contain the filenames of things that you want to survive an install. The filenames are relative to the root of the system partition, so leave off "/system"

    For example, my /etc/custom_backup_list.txt now looks like this:
    Code:
    app/com.wsandroid.apk
    media/audio/notifications/Kimmunicator.ogg
    media/audio/ringtones/Kiddo.ogg
    media/audio/notifications/Droid.ogg
    xbin/sysrw
    xbin/sysro
    I haven't tested it, yet, but I'm 99.9% sure this will work exactly as advertised.

    Same here, really like all the extras!

    I'm new to ROM-switching often, you might say I'm a "Nightlies Newbie"

    Noticed one issue though... Voice Search crashes when I press the mic button on the virtual keyboard. Any help for that? (I've ~gotta~ have voice input for text messaging!)

    edit: nevermind^^^... I went to Market, searched "voice" and Voice Search 2.0.1 showed up as not installed, even tho it was!... now all is good.

    Running 159 nightly. Too many apps are running in the background eventhough I never used them. They restart even after killing them. Other than that it is perfect.
