    I'm looking forward to a battery meter that's more accurate than 10% increments. Maybe that can be achieved with this one.

    My battery is accurate. I've been using it for 2 days straight without charging it once and I'm only in the yellow. And that's using Android Market, messing with widgets, changing wallpapers, adding ringtones and generally messing with the phone. ;)

    patiently awaiting

    I too was using a moto droid rooted, overclocked @ 1100mhz, I think the droid was more stable running the home I preffer to run. I love Sweeter home 2. [yes now it likes to crash from time to time]. There is no othere like it. I can take the time to build my own layout, or download one others made then edit it up to my liking. I haven't been able to really try building my own on the DI. It crashes more when editing on here than it did on my droid.

    I wish I could use htc's widgets with sweeter home 2 since most of htc's are full page widgets. I could link certain one's to a button saying say friendstream and have it popup ontop of the rest not using up an entire page itself, like there favorites, and weather. You get the idea. I find the battery meter to be ok, just the battery itself drains so fast. I knew it would from the specs but didn't think itd be this bad. I do plan on getting a larger battery soon.


    Im currently hoping since I cant use there widgets I can uninstall them once I have root. I think they maybe whats causing SH2 to crash so much cause once it crashes I use System panel to shut all I can then I go back to editing for a while. I can sometimes editing for 20 or so minutes before it happens. On my droid I could go a halfhour sometimes more once I overclocked. Sorry to rant. Just kindof wish I waited a bit longer to get the DI since running SH2 and my home the way I like I think the droid was just as fast. Yes at stock speed it was much slower, but still was more stable. This is my honest opinion not saying everyones runs like mine.

    root is a neccessity for all the development, and hacking we see here.
    theres no reason a phone should be locked. we should be able to do whatever we like to them, once we buy em..
    and they should all be as noob/brickproof as the droid was.

    Subscribing. I'm going to get the incredible after its rooted and available for tether. I wasn't going to but it seems there is no chance of the iphone coming to verizon anytime soon but I want the wifi tether for my ipad.

    hopefully these files can help someone figure something out..
    i found among these files, whitelist, _dev, etc.. tons of files that have to be able to help the ubersmart. also included is the OTA update, that wrote something to recovery(possibly the whole recovery.
    figured might be somewhat useful..
    bunch of zips inside the main zip.. unzip for the actual folder



    Incredible files
