    I'm running it now @ 1ghz - no issues for the first hour. .. figured I'd go ahead and if there were issues it's a breeze to go back to 2.0.3

    well can you enlighten us to any changes please? :D

    a tad off topic but after i installed 2.0.2... my headphones crackle...they didn't BEFORE. it's not so bad that i can't listen but i'm thinking it's somehow related to the audiotoggle thing i now have in my apps drawer. i've been wanting to install a newer version than 2.0.2 but when i saw all the problems ppl were having with 2.0.3 i decided to wait it out.

    The kernel (at least based on it's name) is the same version as the last ROM (it says it is based on THIS version. There are other updates to the kernel that are in their Revision system that have not yet been rolled into this kernel.

    The menu has a "Maps" question, which I would assume deletes the old "Google Maps" for you. I am not having an issue with maps, so I did not do that menu item.

    I did not notice much else different in the install and it booted. There are NO new overclock settings.

    I would not recommend installing until someone from sholes explains what they have changed :D

    I am going to untar the updates on my Linux machine and see which files are different in the trees.

    EDIT - info below this line is added:
    The 2.0.3 system.tar was compiled on 6 Feb, the one from 2.0.4rc1 was compiled on 8 Feb. This is for 2.0.4rc1 version 151.

    Attached is the difference between the two trees (2.0.4rc1-mods.diff.txt), so it seems the only thing changed is indeed the actions related to Google Maps and making it removable from the installer. (This text file was produced by the command diff -uNrp 2.0.3/ 2.0.4rc1/ that was run with the ROMS and system.tar files unzipped in their own directory).

    Based on my previous message, I would not recommend anyone install version 151 (Current 2.0.4rc1) over top of version 148 (2.0.3 of the ROM) unless they are having issues with Google Maps force closing and they could not fix it by removing the maps manually already.

    I have no issues at all with 2.0.3 though ... so if you have 2.0.2, I would recommend 2.0.3 (or 2.0.4rc1 as they are basically the same thing). Not sure if it will fix your audio though. I will listen to something via the jack and see if I have issues now.
