    My power button is also shot. The phone isn't 2 years old yet but I've abused it. It can take a beating. I also use the volume rocker to wake the phone. Quick Boot is a decent app for reboot options, and it is free. My upgrade is not until April so I'm not repairing it. A built in option to remap buttons would be outstanding.

    Installed a reboot app and a screen off app.

    Now I want to dismantle the phone and fix the power switch. Maybe i'll check YouTube...

    you know that Moto was nice enough to hardcode a hot key reboot similar to Alt-Ctrl-Delete except on the Moto keyboards it is ALT-CapButtonAboveALT-DEL

    not a fix for wake lock events but works well enough enough for reboots

    I know with RZR you can maneuver with the pad on the physical keyboard and use the enter key.

    LogCat

    REALLY LOVE this ROM !!
    but also REALLY NEED to enable logcat. have not found a way on 9.0 to get it working. ONLY have OG's to develop on, and is important to have logcat in dev environment :)
    Nice to see the screenshot showing that it can be enabled or disabled in the new 10 rom.

    P.S.
    Steel Droid is ROCK SOLID, I use it because the official ROM crashes too often and the reboots are terrible,
    SD 9 just seems to work - it is my preferred ROM on all OG's that will take it (Have 1 that only official ROM works with???? - POS).

    Hey Chevy I saw in your newest update you are looking for a new launcher, why are you ditching Go? (i'm just curious Go never went well with my phone(s))

    ...so you made me read the first post...:blink:
    Someone ran up his bill...that really sucks...if it wasn't him I'd be having a little talk...

    As far as free launchers, I have been partial to Zeam. Even though I paid for ADW I still like Zeam better.
    I always get the force close on boot (seems no matter what launcher I use), but after that it runs great. It has a small footprint, it's customizable, and fast. I don't know about theming with it, but the icons change when I apply a theme.

    I just figured I would give users something thats a bit more easily customizable. I am having a hell of a hard time getting a theme made for GoLauncher, even with the template, and a full guide. Its more frustrating than I think I want to deal with right now.

    I really hope to see a way to lock apps in memory (similar to liquid and cushy's roms). I've had little luck with the GoLauncher feature. If it weren't for that, SD would be my daily driver because it is stable as a rock and screaming fast! Can't wait for SD10. Thanks for the great work!
