    not to mention in the sholes mod the ability to turn the brightness down to about 2% as well as the keys off so when it's docked at night it won't light up the whole room

    1) Removing stock apps (Amazon MP3)
    2) Overclocking
    3) "AdFree" (Removes ads on most free apps)

    Explain the advantage of Custom Themes. Are they pre-made or do you have to spend time working on them.

    I am totally un-artistic and wouldnt even want to try to build a theme - but if they come pre-made that would be an incentive.

    I see all of the time people spend making kick ass looking droids but I'm just not that into it.

    I'd want overclocking... tether may eventually be worth something. What are the ROM's you speak of.
