    USB tethering is fine for the battery -- it actually charges the phone while you're doing it, albeit slowly. :)

    Ok, sorry, this is probably very noob, and I'm sure if I searched all night I'd find my answers, but, I rooted (frg22d) following motocache1's write up (awesome), got titanium backup, and rom manager/clockwork (both free versions). I downloaded bugless beast (0.5), but the market was, weird, hardly anything found. I tried cyanogenmod (6.0.0) next, but it continually restarted the boot animation. I mostly just want a black or gray notification bar, and to continue using Launcher Pro Plus. Anything else I'll figure out after. Edit: I fortunately made a back up right after rooting, so that's where I'm starting from in all this.

    Did you wipe between each ROM install?

    I should have mentioned that, I wiped before bb, as per instructions, but not before cm, I'll try cm with a wipe. I did a recovery in between the two, and had hoped I could get away without wiping before cm, dumb idea I guess.

    Bugless Beast V.5 is VERY specialized, so if you didn't wipe before CyanogenMod 6 (I'm assuming stable and not a nightly) you really were pushing your chances of having a bootloop.

    Ok, CyanogenMod (yes, stable, not nightly), worked with a wipe. So, if I can get just a bit more help (which I am very thankful for), can you recommend a rom/theme combo for a black notification bar, still using Launcher Pro? Also, do I need to wipe for themes or kernels, or only for roms? Again, thank you for your help.

    You only need to wipe when jumping between ROMs. However, you have to check to make sure that you don't need to reinstall the Google app pack when you do that.

    Themes don't require a wipe but DO require a backup. The same holds true for kernels.

    As for ROM/theme combo, if you can deal with ADW (I don't know if LauncherPro has its own notification bar settings) you can change the notification bar to black in CM 6 in the settings. Dig around for a while. :)

    Sorry if this is outside the scope of this thread, but I am still noob :) I've got LauncherPro running on Cyanogenmod, which is great. Now, I got Rom Manager Premium and Set CPU, and the couple ChevyNo1 kernels I've tried (low and medium voltage 1.1) make my wifi cycle off and on. The .8 kernel that came with Cyanogen works fine. Is this just my phone? I was looking forward to 1ghz. Edit: A much more annoying issue I forgot to mention: Apparently when placing and ending calls, the phone vibrates, even with all haptic settings off/turned down to 0.

    It could be your phone, it could be the kernels. What version of the kernels are you running?

    And for the record, none of that money you gave Koush for ROM Manager (which is still plagued by bugs, up to and including wiping out your recovery) goes to the CM team or Chevy or any other Dev.

    :icon_eek: Well, I've got a refund on that then, and I can live with 800mhz, but the vibrate on calls is something I'd like to change, if possible.

    Look in the settings. CM has a LOT of options that stock ROMs and some AOSP ROMs don't have. I can tell you the nightlies have a lot more, and other than the camera they're all pretty stable at this point. :) 6.1 is going to RAWK.

    What version of the kernels are you running? The 9-23 kernels don't seem to play as nicely with CyanogenMod as the 8-1 kernels.
