    I've been using this version of PE since Saturday night (when you posted a dl link via Twitter) and I have to agree that this ROM is fantastic. Calling it a "BETA" implies bugs or that it won't work well as your daily driver. But with PE 6 this is not the case. I look forward to seeing what you have planned to add to the ROM, but as is PE 6 is nearly flawless.

    GLD - I downloaded the libaudiopolicy.so.zip again and again, could not extract it in 7zip (64-bit). I unzipped it in Win7, 64-bit and pasted it into system/lib after renaming the original file. A reboot left me hung at the white 'M'. Battery pull and reboot resulted in the same. I restored from rz nandroid. Installed the bluetoothladyupdatezip.zip and could not boot past the boot animation. Restored again and I guess I'll live without bt lady's voice. Have others used these methods successfully?

    All right, I'm not sure what is going on. I copied the file straight from /system/lib on my phone and used an update zip template that I've used countless times before, so this makes no sense to me. I'm going to pull both files until Greg can post a good one tonight. I'm sorry for the snafu!

    Thank you much... just wanted to clarify. Also, haven't used the bluetooth yet, it doesn't work at all currently??..and if not why would DSP be more important that bluetooth functioning properly? .. I've never tried using dsp

    Hopefully we can see at least a couple of themes ported to this. I know its only beta, but a rom this good needs some themeing goodness!

    I believe bluetooth works properly -- you just can't hear the bluetooth lady saying "Speak now" when you do voice dialing (you can see "Speak now" on the screen, though).

    Hmmm... okay thanks... hopefully an update patch is posted for this because hearing the prompt is very vital to me on the road, if not I may have to 'break' dsp myself to get that voice back!!.. :p lol thanks GLD

    As far as I can tell, there are at least 3 ways to lock the launcher in memory:

    1. LauncherPro has an option in Preferences > General Settings > Keep in memory.
    2. Settings > Elite Settings > Performance > Perfomance Optimizations > Lock Apps in Memory > Lock Home in Memory.
    3. Include ro_HOME_APP_ADJ=1 in the /data/local.prop file.

    I use the local.prop file method and do not check the boxes for the option in the other places. I would appreciate any feedback as to the best method. I don't lock any other apps in memory.

    edit: MBK, I have used BT quite a bit on a headset and a car speaker and it works great except for the lack of bt lady (which I really want also).

    I use the Sweeter Home 2 preferences to lock home in memory and check the box in Elite Settings, which creates the local.prop file with that script. And the good news is that the ro_HOME_APP_ADJ=1 line doesn't repeat itself every time you reboot.

    Should we lock the messaging app in memory too? I noticed there is no LED settings. I liked setting mine to red rather than the default green. So far so good though! Love PE ROMS.

    I have messaging and K-9 mail locked in memory -- but I have to admit I didn't spend a lot of time seeing if I missed any messages by not having it locked, either.

    Where did the "Droid" notifications tone go? It's also missing in the ringer sounds.

    Do you mean the final PE 6 which should be 2.3.4 is the new version of GB? Just want to have clarity. This beta is 2.3.3 which is the older version of GB.

    I just keep it on my sdcard in /audio/notifications and then I never lose it and the Droid always finds it. I'm attaching a zip file containing the Droid.ogg file, which you can extract and then place either on your sdcard as I noted above, or use Root Explorer to put in /system/media/audio/notifications.

    I'm not sure I understand what's unclear. The OP says that the beta is 2.3.3, but that the final release of this ROM should be 2.3.4 (in other words, he wanted to go ahead and release the 2.3.3 version, but he's working on 2.3.4).
