    I had to manually go into recovery and format cache then the md5 file was created when running backup.

    Still playing but what I have noticed so far:


    • Faster boot
    • Smoother screens on launcher2
    • Smoother boot animation
    • Overall a little faster and smoother then 8.1.1, more like 6.5 was for me.
    • Benchmarks are a little lower on both short and long (approx 10-20)
    • Helix2 kicks arse...... smoother and faster then ever. WOW!

    Updated through ROM Manager, and took the opportunity to switch to Chevy 7-slot 1.25GHz Low Voltage Kernel (from AdamZ 1.2GHz MV). Everything went smooth. Had to delete and re-add most of my widgets, but no biggie. I can confirm that the dial is missing from the *228 call. Can also confirm no YouTube app, but I don't use it really, so no biggie there either. Also noticed that the Astro File Manager says that "this beta version will expire in 3 days."

    All in all, I'm having no real issues so far, so I'm happy. Luckily, I made a backup earlier today in preparation, so I got a good one before CW updated. I'm sure it will be fixed in the next version (isn't it like every other version that this breaks?), so I'm not too worried about it.

    Not sure what all changed. It does seem faster, but then... I changed Kernels, so it's hard to tell where the difference is really coming from.

    Oh... one more thing. The SetCPU widget doesn't seem to track my temperature anymore. It's locked at 35C, even though the System Info page says different. I ran a 10-minute stress test (to test the LV Kernel), and got my temp up to 43C... but widget still said 35C. Anyone else seeing this?

    Used to have stock MMS app with black background and more options under settings: font sizes, notification color...etc. Did I forget to install something?

    haha Cool everything worked great. Thought I selected Helix2 and gave me 3D app drawer. Maybe same thing dunno. But this is sweet,. makes updating ROMs a snap.

    So in this update you can use metamorph to apply 2.0.1 themes too?
