    Half day and not one FC. Nice. Only thing I notice so far is gmail doesn't seem to sync, or sync in a timely fashion. Anyone else see this? Any setting I might be missing since I had to set it up from the start?

    I did set the sync setting to automatic and the account is set to sync.

    does name the file *.rom.tgz mean literally name the file beginning with an asterisk?

    or does the asterisk mean, to type whatever you want in it's place, like "update"?

    result would be update.rom.tgz
    ?

    my issue is a browser wont let me save a file who's name starts with an asterisk.
    also, windows 7 wont let me rename it to that.

    Download it thru Win7 and keep the name as is which should be Smoked.Glass.v.5.0.1.rom.tgz and then copy it as is to your SD card. Then just follow the directions. Watch when you're installing, there's a menu where you choose what you want to install but then the next menu you choose what you want to NOT install.

    Enjoy!

    Installed -- after bootanimation, screen went black. Had to reboot via battery :( Tried reboot again, faster second time, but screen black.

    Will try to reinstall wiping apps/data clear. Then revert if needed.

    ---

    Wiped it all it started up fine -- got some initial setup done. But most of what I try out is force closing right now. Can't get Titanium Backup to run. Tried to look at SD Card and Storage and it force closed. After that I couldn't switch through home screens, etc...reboot and try again.

    ---

    After reboot, faster than hell and everything seems to be running perfectly now. Titanium Backup loading up as it should. Will give another update shortly. So far, I like how clean the system is.

    ---

    Alright -- Titanium has restored all my apps. I'm good to go. <Whew>

    ---

    Dang, now getting constant FC's with Launcher2 -- seems to have started after applying BEAUTIFUL HOME widget. Will really miss this launcher if I can't keep it -- I love the app tray. Just crashed and restarted on it's own :(
    I don't know what I might've done wrong.

    ---

    I guess Launcher 2.1 just isn't for my Droid. Last good known restored (bugless running very smoothly for me with smoked glass and Chevy kernel).

    Still really appreciate this ROM and love the beauty of the 2.1 launcher, smoked glass, etc. I LOVED the clean installation and options in the startup. Very described and easy to use. LOVE the auto backup. Very nicely done Adam. If that 2.1 ever stabilizes (or maybe it was just me??), I'm back to try it again.

    6.0 is still in Beta...and there are some errors in the install scripts.

    Unless you like playing around and rebooting if you choose an otion that does not work...I would wait.

    He should have it done in a few days....maybe sooner
