    I flashed LGB 0.8 about 10 days ago and have been enjoying it, it works great! I am currently running the Gingercomb Juiced theme as well which looks really nice.

    Just wondering, has anything new and exciting come along in the past 10 or so days? I haven't seen any change in nightlies or ROMS available in the toolbox since I purchased the app. Anything I might be missing?

    (I've been pondering switching to CM7 just for a change of pace but don't really want to bother with the SBF and am not excited with the overall look of the few screenshots I've seen of that ROM)

    Nothing new except for the toolbox update. Nightlies in the liberty world are more like monthlies (I'm not complaining). The rom is very close to coming out of beta so it's just minor stuff to iron out. The aosp liberty rom (justice rom) is out and i hope it gets ported to my d2 very soon! What else can I say, it's a solid rom.

    Don't judge cm7 by the screen shots. It only very recently was even born so there is only three themes for it. The rom is incredible. By far the fastest and smoothest rom I've ever tried IMO and it's only gonna get better. First true complete rom for the droid 2.

    3 themes for the CM7 ROM? Last I checked a few moments ago, there is currently, and roughly, 100 to 150 themes for it. I've got 27 themes on my phone so far.

    Yes on the D2. I use the HDPI themes, and a few MDPI themes Every theme I've checked out has been flawless.

    Even haptic is working? Thats always something I've noticed when trying themes that weren't made for that particular phone, all is well except for haptic

    This is not relating to the thread but the theme discussion.

    Cm7 has a theme changer that uses installable apks and not flashable zip files. It allows you to change themes on the fly and you can even download themes from the marketplace. Just search for "cm7 themes" or just "cm7" and there should be quite a few to check out. There are also quite a few of these apks floating around on android sites such as df and xda.

    Thats why there would be 100-150 to chose from. They are not rom or device specific and will work on just about any device/rom that has the changer.

    Wait wait wait.... mighty did you say this is the first complete ROM for the D2? As I understood the other ROMs were not technically complete ROMs because of the lack of a custom kernal, which is not possible because of the locked bootloader. Are you saying that CM4D2 has a custom kernal?

    The CM boots off of Froyo's kernels but is still a GB ROM by technicality. I imagine within a month it will be running off an official GB kernel.

    Themes aren't made for specific phones when it comes to cm7, if your phone uses hdpi and the theme is made for hdpi then it will work, and always will.

    Since we are on D2s, we would need to run HDPI themes. I have tried MDPI themes and the Theme Chooser would say something like sorry this theme is missing some assets to run on your phone... options apply anyways or bummer. I would pick apply anyways. Still works but some parts that don't sit well with the framework or like the Market just won't get themed. It still works for other areas and has not messed anything up. It just skips over areas that won't work and apply the themes to the compatible parts.

    So to answer the critical question... you would want to run HDPI themes for a full theme instead of half or partial themes with MDPI.
