    The first day it was pointed out to me - I updated the code, built it, ran a speedtest, installed it, ran another speedtest - and things got faster for me.

    That being said - I tested a few more times, and noticed that once it got SLOWER. However - because we run on a network that isn't static - it's really hard to gauge if it has a positive effect or not ...

    Think of unthemed as stock - which I believe has the 'ugly gray bar' ;)

    I want to be clear on your problem - there ARE people that get a blank/black screen right after boot animation, which is a brightness issue - is that what you are getting?

    Larry - tried what you said - and experienced what you experienced. HOWEVER - the first time you run the camera, it goes through a LOT of initialization code before it will work. Look for the overlay buttons on the right (flash, etc). If they are not there - it is working and will FC if you try to do anything. Wait until that shows up - THEN try video - that worked for me.

    OK I will take a look probably because the names are almost identical and I search the package list for 'ADW' - might have to change that!

    As far as not. bar speed - speed is relative to how much info it needs to go through. Because my color changes are on the fly and do not require a reboot - it has to roll through everything on the bar when you pull down, to set the colors to what you have specified. Haven't had a chance to dig into the code yet to see how I can optimize.

    I have been unable to get ANY of the new markets to work without FC'ing .. that is the only reason I have not included it as part of the ROM. And even still - the market has not updated itself!

    I also run wired tether and it works just fine for me. Can you capture a logcat when it fails and send it to chevyno1.droid@gmail.com?

    wireless tether works for me as well. No FC

    I also tried to port the new market to SS4.96 with no success.

    The only way I would see it working is to possibly edit framework xml's for market ? If Chevy cant get it working, I might as well give up. lol. I have no where near the knowledge of chevy.

    However....I will keep trying.

    you didnt wipe though. If it was working for you in 4.95 and you didnt wipe....thats your answer.

    Im working on the new market right now, as well as getting wired tether to work if I can. Wireless tether works fine for me.

    This part here is some of the best news I've heard in a while. It's like seeing the horizon just start to get light knowing the sun is coming up. Hopefully though, it's not an Arctic Circle morning. :)

    He is referring to the ability to be able to turn the data connection off without having to activate airplane mode.
