    I've just installed MavRom on my D3 - it's the first time I've rooted this device and first ROM I've installed. I'm impressed so far, my D3 seems to be a little faster and the battery life is much improved!

    A couple of questions though...

    1. Where's Swype?
    2. After rooting and before installing MavRom I did a backup from CWM recovery. Is it safe to rename the backed up folder? I'd like to call it something like "Stock Rooted" instead of how it's named currently (date/time).
    3. In the Maverick Toolbox, Memory Settings - what's the difference between the 3 options?

    And now a suggestion...

    In the Maverick Toolbox, bunch of the items allow you to install or uninstall an app, or install a different version of an app. It'd be nice if the tool showed what the current setting or installed version is.

    Excellent questions

    I am in almost the same state as you, in the process of flashing my first ROM on D3. My understanding of the Memory Settings from reading the forums is that it basically decides how aggressive the Android OS task killer will be in reclaiming memory. The stock option is the most aggressive and MavBasic is least aggressive and Mav Deluxe is supposed to give you the ideal mix with best battery life. See comment below -
    I could be wrong - I am still a n00b on D3.

    1. The ROM has been debloated. Therefore, no Swype. Go here, get the Swype beta, its much better IMO anyway.
    2. I've never had an issue with renaming a backup. Not to say that you won't, but decide for yourself. I'd move a copy of the backup to my PC just to be sure.
    3. Socal's quote from Buckmarble defines it.

    Cool, thanks for the udpate. Is this your ROM? If so, do you think the suggestions I had about the toolbox could be incorporated into the next version?

    Fairly certain the stock (blur) apps are installed. Easy check for that is to check after you first install whether the text messaging app (blur) or SMS messaging (aosp) is installed. It would be in the app drawer. I'm pretty sure it is, in fact, text messaging.

    I'm part of the team, but the Toolbox is Pedward3x's creation.

    This rom is pretty slick. How do I turn off the auto correct? It's pretty annoying...

    Edit: I turned it off in settings, but it still auto corrects everything. Or at least it thinks it is. Especially in sms messenger 2.3.3.

    Edit again. Nvm. Figured it out. I guess the options were under multi touch keyboard settings. But i'm using the hardware keyboard..... w/e. Thinking out loud.

    would it be possible to get the stock weather/news widget app added to the toolbox? i really prefer that one as it's the same one that was also on my droid1.

    Mav stock wallpaper

    Thanks for this rom guys, it's awesome. Just 2 questions.

    1. When I switched themes using Maverick Toolbox I lost the throwing star wallpaper. How can I get this back? I'd really like to use it with the stock GB theme.

    2. How can I get the "favorite contacts" pulldown folder with a different theme/launcher?

    Thanks

    Edit - figured out number 2. It's the quick contacts widget.

    This seems to be the place to ask questions, so - is there anyway to get the stock corporate/ exchange email client back? Or at least the look of it?

    Agree with the post above for Mav 3.5. Please have the corporate email and universal inbox and universal message widget like the stock Rom. Juggling the different emails are the most important. I had to remove the Mav 3.0 because of the corporate exchange email issue. Also I have found when I logged into my Android Market account many of my apps that I had installed on my Droid 3 are no longer compatible with the Mav Rom 3.0 and can not be installed. Case in point Swing by swing Golf GPS. I had to go back to stock, back it up with Ti Back Up and install the APK. I have know idea why this happened but there were other apps like eoeAppInstaller Pro that are no longer recognized.
    For me the stock ROM is good with out all the bloat, but for me I don't mind much of the Blur. The WIFI tether is important too with out the need to do the Radio Hack so yes that was nice to have in Mav 3.0. I understand your build will be based on 5.7.905 update. I will wait for Mav 3.5 to try out.

    Not sure what issues others are reporting about corporate email on MavROM 3. I have no issues at all using it to connect to my companys corporate exchange server and get and respond to about 50 emails a day without any issue. As a matter of fact this is amongst the best corporate email and calendar phone and ROM I have ever used (blackberry, Droid1,iPhone in the past).

    Aside from occasional sync issues it functions fine for me also. I was asking more for aesthetic purposes; and I've never really liked the way blur incorporates all the accounts.

    I did manage to change some of the display options and it's feels a little more like how I want it.
