    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..

    D/L link..
    *********** - online file sharing and storage - download Droid.Customizer_v1.0_Themed.rom.tar

    Market: When trying to download an app, I'm stuck on either Starting Download, or Authorizing Purchase. Any way to fix it?

    :( i feel bad for man.. cause your going to have to wipe, i've found that to be an issue with some,

    first try wiping just your cache partition first and rebooting, and if that still doesn't work, then try this before you wipe data

    make an advanced nandroid backup of
    boot
    data
    system

    then return to SPRecovery main screen and wipe data/cache and cache partion 3 times

    then restore just your data from the backup you just made nothing else


    if none of those work, then sadly your going to have to wipe data/cache so your phone is clean then restore the ROM and reboot..
