    Anyone know of any good themes to use with this rom? Also what kernel are people having good success with? (good battery life/low time awake)

    Anyone that has any working mods I think this would be a good spot to post them. I have a few and will try and post them soon.

    I have been running Imoseyon's leanKernel (1.6.6 currently) which has been the most stable / best on battery for me. It is updated almost daily, and I am running an experimental version of the latest that lets me set the CPU MIN to 230MHz (also allows OC to 1420, but I am fine with 1200). I am running codename android 1.1.1

    Grab it here:

    Oh I just tried the fast key mod, and wow it is sooo much nicer. The lag from the soft keys is basically gone, much more responsive. I am also using the blacked out keyboard, which I reeeeally like, that can be found in the themes section here on df. Just make sure you use the latinimgoogle one, that's the one that works on cnd (1.1.1 at least)

    I don't know if this will work on 1.1.4, but here is the link: http://rootzwiki.com/topic/15160-modcodename-111-fast-glow-soft-keys/

    I know that 1.1.4 has sped up he soft button animation, but from what I remember it still wasn't as fast/smooth as it was with this mod on 1.1.1.

    The one thing that I would really like it a transparent bar for the soft keys and the statusbar. Plus anything transparent, or just a full out transparent theme :D

    Anyone know if we can get custom icons on the codename launcher?? I really like the codename setup and don't want to have a secondary launcher if I don't need one.

    A blacked out or transparent sub-menus would be awesome.

    well, i managed, in my opinion, to remove the first layer and now the sofy keys are bright as hell.. so i just need to keep doing it. As for the statusbar.. wow..lol I did some serious editing there and it went from fine to really messed up to back to fine after even more editing.. i really feel like these things just have multiple layers and ive yet to remove them all. Still workign on it but im also trying to update gtalk at the same time and.. at some point.. the t9 dialer has to be done cause, quite frankly, i hate the stock one...lol

    Someone asked for google reader too.. i can do that.
