Any other ROMs allow you to control the music w/ the screen off other than SS?

    That's the most attractive feature for me, however it doesn't work. Do any other ROM's have this feature? If so, which? In case you're not aware, SS is supposed to allow you to skip up and down w/ a long press of the volume button and to pause w/ a long press of the camera button while the screen is off.

    i think he means using the volume buttons to skip the song and the camera button to pause/play the song. in any case, ultimate droid does both. it can control the music when the screen is off and has buttons to control the music on the lockscreen when the screen is on. Pandora works with the lockscreen controls(when the screen is on) but i dont think it works with the volume/camera button when the screen is off.

    Thanks everyone. I stopped using Chevy since it didn't work so now I am running UD, but it doesn't work w/ pandora when the screen is off.

    If anyone knows of a ROM that works w/ both the music player and Pandora when the screen is off please let me know. I had a pair of headphones from Verizon that I used to use and if I pressed the button it would pause/play either the music player or Pandora depending on which one I accessed last so I assume it's possible. I switched to Bose noise cancelling headphones and now I can't do that. (yes I know I can get a wire that has that feature for $50, but I don't want to spend anymore $ on them and that price is ridiculous)

    Sapphire has it. Plus you can pause/play with the camera button too. :)

    Btw, don't try the volume rocker part on pandora. Causes problems sometimes. Pause/play should work fine though.

    Thanks. Is it too much trouble to ask you to verify that pause works w/ Pandora? I'd really appreciate it! As long as pause works that's a start :)

    It does work just well. Just tried it again to be sure. Pandora 1.4.1 and Sapphire 1.1.1. And the volume rocker part works too, but everyonce in a while it can get caught in a skip loop and waste all your skips, so I don't bother with that part. I think it has to deal with people's screen off or min clock settings being to low, and the pressed command won't stop until after the not pressed command is over. Doesn't happen often at all though.

    Sweet! Thanks!! I'm going to flash it now before I head out the door. I'll be able to use this big time in a matter of minutes :). Which should I use if I want to install black glass? I see there is a sapphire theme, ruby and emerald. Does it matter?

    edit: Never mind. I think those are different roms

    Each is a different phone.

    Sapphire - Motorola Droid 1
    Ruby - HTC Droid Incredible
    Emerald - HTC EVO 4G
    Obsidian - Motorola Droid X

    The X version is still in development, though close to release, and then they might look into the Droid 2.

    Oh, and if you ever see a theme that works on any of these roms, it works on all the others. So if you see a theme for ruby or emerald, it should work for Sapphire too :)
