    Going to give this a try. This looks promising, and it is going to have the reboot feature when hitting the power button.

    This is some pretty good news :)

    I didn't think Pete would come out with a 2.1 ROM til 2.1 was officially released....

    Couple of observations

    - This has autobrightness which Pete's does not
    - Notifications are black on black
    - I LOVE the 2.1 launcher with the phone and broswer, I wish I could just add this feature to my BB 0.7.5... I couldn't care less about the app drawer because I never use it but the browser and phone icons save space on my home screen for other icons.

    Most importantly...this is the slowest rom I have ever used. Even with overclock set to 550/1000 and the DroidSwap set to 96-98MB, and having done a complete wipe prior to installing, the lowest benchmark I can get is about 140ms slower than my worst benchmark in Bugless Beast.

    Here is what I see

    no backlight on the keyboard
    pull down of notification bar is white with black text (like 2.01 stock)
    had to do a complete wipe and not restore data (did data the first time and would not load)
    reboot option is there after hitting power.
    doesn't say verizon, instead its tcdma 64

    still checking things out
    matth3w simply stunning rom has the same skin on the launcher and seems to be faster then this one.

    I wonder what has caused all these new 2.1 ROMS to pop up all of a sudden?

    Leds work when screen is off, but once you turn it on it goes away. I see what you meant by black text on black bar. No likey, going back to simply stunning now.

    I'm going to try Simply Stunning and then call it a night. If it works, great, if not I'll just wait for the real 2.1 to come out and get the launcher from there.

    Honestly all I care about, and the only reason I am even bothering, is because I like the phone and browser icon on the launcher thing.

    If you want that I think you can push the launcher2 to your system apps and then use the GlassTheme on metamorph to change the look of the laucher. I'm pretty sure this would work but I'm trying to learn all this stuff myself.

    Well I flashed Simply Stunning and it seems to do the trick AND be fast, so no need.

    Matt, if you like the the "launcher thing" try AdamZ Smoke Glass 4.1, it is a stavle 2.01 rom and includes eerything that BB has with the "Thing" you like that is in Simply Stunning.

    PS: I have had Simply Stunning running since it came out and have had no problems at all. I also installed the Multi Touch Browser and Gallery as well and adding the email and Amazon(just renamed them). It has been the most stable 2.1 and I have tried all of them

    Well I've tried every one but the AdamZ and I think I'm just going to stick with BB 0.7.5 because it's stable, quick, and has no issues.

    I tried simply stunning last night and it was great for like two hours then I was getting force closes and worse yet a bunch of hard resets every time I tried to install something or install a widget. that was after a clean wipe, etc.

    That being said, I'll give adamz a look. After all, it only takes about 10 minutes to restore my BB via Nandroid should I not like it.
