    Remember, this ROM is Deodexed, which means the first boot will take a long time, all subsiquent boots will load fast, the bootanimation present in this ROM does not repeat, so after it finishes your screen will be BLACK, this is NORMAL.. don't worry, it will load, just be patient.. :)


    Updating to newest baseband
    Credit for this goes to PETE
    -Download the update.zip below
    -place on the ROOT of your SDCard
    -Rename to update.zip
    -reboot into SPRecovery
    -make an nandroid backup before
    -apply update.zip
    -reboot and your phone will give you final instructions
    -YOU WILL NOT LOSE DATA, the backup is a precaution

    Changing Font
    Credit for this goes to AdamZ
    If YOU mess something up or lose any of your data its YOUR fault, not anyone elses..

    This is AdamZ's Droid Customizer from 2.0.1, however you

    can still use it to change fonts and bootanimations, NOTHING ELSE..

    so SKIP every step, excecpt for FONT and BOOTANIMATION... If you try to change something eles, you WILL be in a boot loop and have to restore,
    SO MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE JUST IN CASE..

    I'm installing it now. If there's a previously undiscovered bug, believe me, it will happen to me. Either way I'll be reporting my findings back to you.
