    Changelog

    This ROM is based off of Pete's Bugless Beast V1.1. He put a lot of hard work into it, so if you enjoy this, or his work, please donate to him! You can find the link to his donate and the original BBV1 thread at the following:

    -1.2Ghz LV 7X
    -1.2Ghz IV 7X
    -1.3Ghz LV 7X
    -1.3Ghz IV 7X

    P3Droid kernels will also work great - Get them here

    Clean-up Scripts
    -Remove ADW Launcher
    Code:
    su
    sysrw
    rm /system/app/Launcher.apk
    sync
    sysro
    
    -Remove 3D Launcher (Launcher2)
    Code:
    su
    sysrw
    rm /system/app/Launcher2.apk
    sync
    sysro
    
    -If you need to have video MMS (this will break changing the LED color):
    Code:
    su
    sysrw
    rm /system/app/Mms.apk
    mv /system/app/Mms.bak /system/app/Mms.apk
    sync
    sysro
    
    OPTIONAL Mods
    -Default Droid Fonts
    Install just like you would any other .zip file (with either Clockwork or SPR). No wipes necessary (or suggested!)

    -Stock Nexus LWP
    Place file on SDCard and run the following
    Code:
    su
    switchlwp
    
    -Themed LauncherPro 0.3.0
    Install as you would any .apk. If you have LauncherPro already installed, you must uninstall first.

    -NexTheme Wallpapers
    Put em on your SD card, set them by choosing wallpapers, from gallery...you know the drill

    Suggestions
    -Do a PRL update *22899 or *228 option 2
    -SetCPU (available in market)
    -Android Terminal Emulator (free in market, this name, not the other one)
    -Change transitions and window animations to 'fast' using Spare Parts
    -Before you decide on which launcher to make default, go into the other one and delete everything off the desktop
    -If you're using ADW Launcher, follow the suggested settings below for super quickness!
    -If you're looking for another launcher, LauncherPro from the market is also great! Themed version also available!
    -Report your bugs/success here!
    -Follow me on Twitter! (I can get back to you more quickly that way)

    ADW Configuration Suggestions
    I personally use these settings, and have found them to result in a zippy home screen:
    -Screen Preferences: Uncheck orientation sensor, turn scrolling speed and overshoot to 0
    -Drawer Settings: Turn off new drawer, animated drawer. Columns to 5 in portrait, 6 in landscape.

    BUGS
    -If you are using a notification tone from your sdcard, please disable 'SD notification', as it may cause a reboot loop when trying to access the sound file before the card is mounted
    -Virtual keyboard on homescreen w/ LWP causes a freeze

    Enjoy!

    How were you able to get the battery percentage to display in the battery? Is there a file I can use just to install that feature, like a metamorph theme or something?

    Sorry, they are hard coded into the actual images. This is a makeshift way of actually getting the feature (but does not allow it to be turned off via spare parts).

    It also only shows 100, 80, 60, 40, 20, and 10 levels.

    If you want, I can zip those files up, and you can push them into your framework-res file, though it will not match unless you have NexTheme already.


    here are the images. you need to push them into framework-res.apk in the res/drawable-hdpi folder.

    It's a full ROM...so you'd need to wipe first, and backup if you don't have a Nandroid of current ROM

    You can install over version 1.0, though I suggest removing the wireless tether app first. Just run the following code in terminal emulator:

    Code:
    su 
    sysrw
    rm /system/app/wireless_tether_2_0-pre10.apk
    sync
    sysro
    
    I've already got reports that this works, but you should make a nandroid just in case :D

    Did you do a full wipe? How did install?

    This was pete's version, or mine?

    EDIT: I've updated the OP with instructions on how to install over an older version of the ROM, as well as posted the video on what I consider "optimal" configurations for ADW Launcher.

    Just to be sure if currently running the NexBeast V1 if I run the script I don't have to do a full wipe?
