    So I was looking through some threads about other home replacements and came across one or two that was a really nice feature.

    In the Status Bar Pulldown, there are the Power Control options (turn Wifi on/off, bluetooth on/off, etc).

    I know that Chevy has focused a lot of effort on the status bar theming itself, but what about adding some functionality to that status bar? I'd love to get rid of the power control widget on my homescreen.

    This is, I'm sure, more difficult to implement than changing colors, but IMO it could really give Chevy's ROM something that no one has ever done before and set it apart.

    Thoughts?

    Check out the video in this OP Chevy, this is what he is talking about, at about 28 sec:

    [ROM] Zen-MIUI v2 Android 2.2 + MIUI

    Everybody wants those controls in the pulldown but I don't think it's been done except on this ROM's base.

    I hear that BlackDroid has been working to implement some of the MIUI features like this one, the dilar, maybe the lock-screen into his next UltimateDroid release. I see parts being really cool, and should be tossed into other ROMs. I am excited to see this, however it means that themers like myself will have to sit down and figure some things out...
