    Apparently in Cyanogenmod, there is a setting to change the long press home action to display RUNNING apps instead of RECENT.
    This is awesome.
    Also, there is a setting to make a long press of the back button exit the current app.
    This is also awesome.
    Is there ANY way anyone knows of to do this on rubix?
    or would drod be willing to implement this?

    OH and there are a few other roms out there with a clear lockscreen,
    Like the rotary one only theres no clock or vzw text and you can see the home screen through it.
    I desperately want this and have been experimenting but i dont think im capable of it.

    If anyone is even capable of pointing me in the right direction id be thrilled.

    i get the odd feeling the majority of droidforums members are not developers.

    Once Phoenix hits, its very likely this will be included in one way or another.
    It's very complicated to edit things substantially without it being a source built rom.

    The clear lockscreen is more simple, it's just replacing the lockscreen images, with transparent images, and completely stripping it down of the internal widgets. It's not substantial edits, although it's not something I'm looking to implement. Maybe a themer, perhaps.. I know linear has the clear lockscreen sliders.

    good to hear :)
    I'm very OCD and the lack of this feature was bothering me alot.
    The lockscreen i can live without.
    Do you have anything like a feature suggestion thread?

    No, since rubiX development is almost at a stand-still while working on GB and Phoenix for the DX, Fascinate and GTab.

    Ah. Well I'm a bit of a newbie. I'm not 100% on what this whole Phoenix thing is

    Good god, That's Glorious!
    I'm pretty excited.
    Are you going to discontinue Rubix afterwards?

    I don't know that I'll ever discontinue rubiX.

    rubiX has, and will continue, slowing down in production. Getting hard to maintain all these different devices, especially since I've been developing without a droid x since early december (the one I have doesn't count. no screen backlight, its mostly to make sure the rom boots before sending to testers)

    Ah well.
    Hopefully the good work done on Rubix will carry over.
    I do see some problems as far as fragmentation goes however...
    How are you guys going to maintain a rom on 5 or 6 different devices?

    The system and kernel tweaks in rubiX will be included in Phoenix.

    Fragmentation will not be an issue, as it will be built from the latest android source, everything will be the latest, with the same changes throughout. Very similar to the way Cyanogenmod works.

    Wow I'm seriously stoked! I'm assuming you guys are stuck until the DX bootloader is cracked... or gingerbread is released officially.

    Nope. Thanks to cvpcs' hijack method, AOSP is possible. Gingerbread has been booted on the DX, but it's not functional. Very little hardware worked, and I'm not sure about 3G/SMS/MMS/Calls

    Awesome!
    But judging by your post there's probably a ton more work to do.
    Well it's not like I will be able to afford a new phone anytime soon so hopefully I'll still have my DX when it comes out.
    Anyway if there's any way i can help you guys out, testing and such I'd be glad to help. I'm not a complete tool. :)
