    Hey guys and gals, is it possible to put the blur found on the D3 onto the D2G, or really any other motorola/blur enabled phone? If so id really like to have it on my D2G because its blur is so far beyond atrocious it makes me sick :b

    Since Blur isn't an app, and an integrated part of the OS, there is no way to "install" it to any other device.

    I see. So there's no way to rip out the framework and such?

    Isn't accessing the framework a root thing? The D3 isn't rooted yet, but I keep hearing it's getting close. And thank goodness, because I get mine tomorrow!

    Do you think I am on this forum by mistake?

    Let see how good it is.

    Stock android email application = easy to assign seperate notfication tones for each account. Easy to distinguish between accounts via simple color coding. One click access to the combined Inbox.

    Blur = none of the above.

    Stock Android App drawer = Nice to use and smooth on this device.

    Blur = Crappy knock off of IOS.

    Compared to something like Launcher Pro it's the 80 year old geriatric of interfaces. Slow in response and forgets what it's doing on occasion.

    Is it better than the crap that came on the D2G? Yep.

    Is it better compared to the stock experience on the OG Droid? Not a chance in hell.

    The OP here has the system dump, which contains the framework files if ya know what you're doing maybe you can use it.

    Explain to me how blur is a knockoff of iOS. MIUI is the real knockoff, but is done to a point where it beats the original quite badly anyways.

    For those of you people running a D2G with cm...Take a looksee at my sig. I think you'll like it.

    Please explain how the new blur app drawer is an ios rip off, when ios doesnt even have an app drawer? And thanks for thinking your opinion is a fact.

    And I like how you give 2 reasons why. Even though one isn't even true lol.
    I like the new blur more than stock android. Its my favorite android skin as well.

    Sue me.

    You sure it's just 2. Pick up and iPhone and spend 5 minutes with it than get back to me.

    I realize there are only so many ways you can layout icons on a screen but there was nothing wrong with what was already there. The only improvement to the app drawer would be the ability to hide all the ****ware that come preloaded.

    Ok, but that's only 1 part similar to iOS...and touchwiz for that. Personally, replicated in adw ex, I find it's quite a useful setup; I have space in my dock to add useful functions. But I fail to see anywhere else it's a crappy knockoff. We're all entitled to opinions on blur.
    Try MIUI if you like iPhones so much.
