    so chevy wont be around for awhile, as he stated in his moving thread.

    To make it easier on chevy when he gets back, Im starting this thread for people to post ideas, requests, or suggestions for 5.3. Im sure some of us are going to stray and try out other ROMS in the coming weeks, as chevy said himself if there is something u see and would like it to be in SS post it up :)

    I personally just put the GB MIUI on my spare droid (its no SS) but it has some nice features....so i am adding the first request/idea.

    its kinda hard to see in the screenshot, at the very top is a small green bar which is the battery meter. VERY clean look, and the charging animation is pretty slick aswell.

    I saw on a friends dx that he can clear individual items in the drop down. That would be nice to be able to do.

    You can do this already on D1, pretty sure I could since at least Froyo. Just press & hold an item, then swipe right, and it will clear off that item only. Prob different than on the DX, but it's there :)

    In LGB there was a feature to allow you to turn on the phone by using the volume up/down button.

    It would also be nice to have script to remount /system read-write and to perform a hot reboot.

    Widgetsoid has a reboot function and one of them is hot reboot. And it's free, so that's always awesome. You can make a dedicated hot reboot widget. I just tried it and it works.

    I'm surprised more ppl don't have ideas!

    Here's my second....its a setting in CM already but missing in SS. The option to change to answer call screen to a rotary aswell, instead of sliders.

    Got it on 5.2. Pretty sure chevy said he will build it into 5.3 from the start :)

    Here is another one. Have the ability to set the read ahead value that will persist after a reboot. This is the value that you put into the /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb file to improve the read performance on the SD card.

    Yes, it is just a matter of putting a script in the /system/etc/init.d directory to set the value when the phone boots, but having it in tools as yet another thing that can be tweaked, will make this performance improvement available to more people.

    I would love to see the themed version of SS 5.3 be a mix of SS blue and Honeycomb! I love some of the honeycomb theme pieces but love Chevy's statusbar icons and animations.

    I must start out by saying this is the best rom. That said i do like some features in Miui. Can you add the miui dialer and lock screen. The dialer is the best i have used. The lock screen allows you to have a different wallpaper on it compared to the homescreen.

    Not sure that is possible regarding the dialer port. MIUI's dialer has been requested for numerous Froyo roms with no sucess. Apparently it is written into the OS and can not be fully ported. UD did a half port of it in his TUD roms. Maybe a full port on GB would be different?

    yes a customizable background for the lockscreen apart from the homescreen would be cool, maybe some SS Widget options for the lockscreen?
    Is it possible to have a One-touch camera button usable even from the lockscreen? I find myself sometimes wanting to take an immediate (well as close to immediate as possible) picture of stuff sometimes and it'd be nice not to have to hit the lock button, slide, open camera app, wait... then snap the picture.

    Will this mean that apps I have on my sdcard that I have shortcuts for on my desktop will load their icons right away and be able for use? Right now I'm using adw with a few folders n apps in dockbar n one or two direct shortcut to app n they come up with the android blue themed system default icon for abot a minute. In the interim can you explain how to do this? Much appreciated.

    Well, until the SD card is mounted, no application that uses the card will be able to run. And applications and widgets that are actually on the SD card won't be able to load. However, after the SD is mounted, the performance of the reads to the card goes way up. The easiest place to notice this is with the gallery.

    So, no, it won't improve the boot up time of the phone as far as the widgets and apps that are on your SD card are concerned. But, I would guess that applications that are stored on the SD card should start up a bit faster with this change. Might not really be noticeable. I couldn't actually say as I don't have any apps on my SD card!
