    This is one massive update to my ROM. I have personally themed damn near every image in it. A LOT of help came from Sonny Sekhon, author of the ICS theme for T-Mobile Theme Engine. Many thanks to him for getting me started on this!


    Changelog: (ITS A BIG ONE!)

    :blackdroid: Reverted back to Music 2.3.7 instead of 3.x for speed

    :blackdroid: Fixed default system battery capacity to 1390 for the BP6X battery
    :blackdroid: Fixed middle ring unlock issue that caused soft reboots
    :blackdroid: Made ICS Roboto font the default
    :blackdroid: Adjusted power profile to better suit the D1
    :blackdroid: Color-matched Settings icons for a better visual appearance
    :blackdroid: Persistent ADB notification is off by default

    List of easily removable apps:
    Calculator
    Calendar
    Email
    File Manager
    Live Wallpapers
    Magic Smoke Wallpapers
    Music
    Search
    Theme Manager
    Visualization Wallpapers
    Voice Dialer


    Recommendations:
    Wipe EVERYTHING before installing, or you WILL have problems.

    Give the ROM time to run, before judging it. It will be slow to start, but speed will increase as things settle in. Wont take long, maybe a few minutes!

    As for the Market, you need to sign into your Google account FIRST, and then the icon will appear.

    Credits:
    Here are my thanks, in no particular order:

    This rom is SMOKING fast... Two finger rotation is for the Google Maps. Also I gotta say that boot animation is pretty awesome ;) But I'm biased.

    DeskClock fc's on me when i try to create a new alarm. Was thinking of pulling the apk from another rom and pushing it on this one. Not sure where I would replace the DeskClock.apk

    update: nm, found where to put it. Took DeskClock.apk from LGB 1.85 and pushed it to this. Alarm works fine now

    I love the look and feel and music 3.0 is great. I do have one small issue. My wireless tethering isn't working. The binary and config files are successful and I've fixed permissions and rebooted. I've been through and toggled nearly every setting. I noiced your post mentions a fix. I was hoping for some tips as my log seems to be reporting no failures. :S

    Anyone have any ideas as to why music.apk is missing from my install?

    Everything else is working flawlessly.
