    I can't remember where I saw this, but some framework had the battery percent left replace the standard battery icon on the status bar. Anyone know where you can get this framework or how you can add just that "widget"?

    It was a little different I think, but not bad I'll probably use it anyhow. Too bad the 3G icon doesn't actually cover up the stock 3G

    I tried to apply that theme to metamorph and it rebooted my phone. Perhaps it's not compatible with bugless or something?

    Cyanogenmod was the first rom i tried. seemed a bit laggy for me. I switched to Bugless Beast after reading Matth3w's root guide and love it. However, I'm thinking about switching back for this reason.

    Also, I've been reading that using ROMManager is an unstable way to do things. However, that's the only way that i feel safe flashing new roms. I guess that's a question for another thread though lol.

    I've seen this as well.

    If you go to the blackdroid page
    (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/bl...otation-2-3d-launchers-built-source-more.html)

    and click on nextheme screenshots
    ([THEME] NexTHEME-v2.0 Enom_1.8 .1/ CM_5.0.5.6 Final Beast! =) - Nexus Nation Forum)

    It shows it. I tried nextheme but it was super buggy and had a LOT of force closes. I ended up editing pete's ESE81 stock framework with some of the icons from nextheme to get the same look but running a LOT smoother. I forget if it actually showed the battery life or not though.

    I installed cyanogenmod for droid v5.0.6.2 again (this is the third time) and it still keeps rebooting on me every few minutes. I don't know what the issue is, but to me, this is by far the worst ROM I've tried to date. I don't know how to troubleshoot these kinds of things so I guess I'm stuck.:mad:
