    Yes i was thinking it would be nice to simply have haptic feedback when long pressing the camera button when the phone is off so i know when the music controls are disabled or enabled.

    Otherwise, everything is running perfectly.

    You can use the 4.7 watermarkD theme just fine on 4.8

    Just curious to see if this is the same behavior... when you try, do you get a blank toast notification on your screen (just a small empty square)? That's what happens to me.

    I have tried removing and re-applying SU permissions to "multiple packages", to no avail.

    You can for now disable apps the manual way if you have root explorer or something similar... go to system/app, mount r/w, rename apps you want to hide by appending filename with ".bak". This is exactly what the scripts do. Press mount r/o when you are done as always.

    You SHOULD be able to use skip forward/back play/pause buttons on any A2DP enabled bluetooth device, as this is definitely supported by Android. I use my Moto S9 BT headphones just about every day, and I live on those buttons! And now, all these media functions play nicely with one another on 4.8.

    I have the Moto S9 BT headphones also and all the controls work fine. I've had the speaker, Moto EQ5, and the speakers controls didn't work with SS4.7 either. call button works but skip pause/play do not work on the speaker.

    update:
    well there is somthing wrong with my stock music player, I can now use the speakers controls skip, pause/play when using btunes...where can I get another copy of the stock music player???

    Stunning!

    I isstalled SS 4.8 over UD8 without any kind of wiping. The droid came right back up like nothing had happen! no issues at all so far. Very nice! I miss the extra led notifications in UD8 and the rotary lock screen, but I actually like the default blue theme in SS. I am only getting 1100s and 1200s in the quadrant standards, I was getting 1300s and 1400s in UD with Chevy's 1100 LV Kernel. Is this normal? (I know this theme came with a 1000MHz kernel) The phone is just as snappy though!

    Get "Music Mod" from the marketplace. It's free and it's an enhanced build of the stock player. Mainly, it adds some nice widget options and a much improved "Now Playing" screen that is fullscreen and uses your wallpaper as the background.

    did you try fix permissions?

    go to chevy tools > scripts> backup and restore > fix permissions.

    After it says finished, reboot.

    try it again.

    If that doesnt work...then after fixing permission go to.

    settings > applications > manage applications > chrome to phone > force close and clear data.

    Then go open chrome to phone again and set it back up...that way...it will be fresh data and fixed permissions.

    Use root explorer...go to /system/app/chrome2phone.apk....long press...rename...add .bak at the end.

    Should read chrome2phone.apk.bak

    after that...go to the market and download chrome to phone app. See if it installs.

    If it does....try it out. If it works...go back into root explorer and delete the chrome2phone.apk.bak file.

    if that doesnt work...try to fix permissions again.

    If that doesnt work...dont know what else. It sounds like its specifically related to the chrome2phone app though...unless you are having issues elsewhere.

    gsearch is already installed. My gtalk works as well.

    I was unable to install street view for google maps. I renamed street.apk to street.apk.bak, rebooting now...going to install one from market and see if it works.

    I had issues with UD8 myself. My girl uses it, no probs. It is laggy from time to time. My problem was kept getting FC process.acore when I used ADW launcher and tilted my phone. It would not load widgets, etc. Scrapped UD8.
