    Why contacts?? cuz it's easier to find phone numbers and other contact info... jk!! :D

    my only concern with apps from the mkt is that when updates come out, you can lose the "theming" of the app from the rom. but, i guess i can just not allow "auto update" for those apps.

    i agree with this...if you dont know what he is talking about...in the phone app, the 4 tabs at the top with dialer, recent calls, contacts and starred are all kinda hard to read.

    Black status bar.

    not even sure if this is possible, but when i walk with the phone in my pocket, it slides open and somehow comes unlocked (may have fixed that tho) is there any way to not have it "wake up" when you slide the keyboard out?

    awesome ROM...i dont even look at other peoples stuff now...haha

    I think I prefer the white status bar, but I would be ok with whatever the majority decides. I would like to see the signal bars larger, though.

    Non-transparent pull-down.
    Maybe green highlights when making a selection, instead of red.
    Can the launcher redraw fix (HOME_APP_ADJ=1) be built into the ROM?

    BTW, this is the first ROM I have flashed, and I see absolutely NO reason to even entertain the thought of trying a different one. GREAT JOB!

    Here's another 1+ for black status bar.(as there are currently no sense like themes that work with v2)

    That feature that allows you to swipe away a single notification from the pull down would be nice.

    Great work with this ROM. Fastest that I have had on my droid without a huge sacrifice with battery.

    If you do release a clean vanilla version I ask that it be themed in some way as PE v2 was with the Droid 2/X notification bar, icons etc....Otherwise you know I'm good with anything you roll out sir.....:)

    Well My buddy talked me into trying out ShadowRom..and that was because i talked him into trying PE. But the one thing that i did like about Shadow Rom is that when you click ADD/to home screen and click to add widgets insted of having a bunch of things it was broken down into personal folder.. For example instead of having 30 Beautiful widgets there would be one folder that you click and then there is all the different widgets.

    You with me??

    That's just the app Widget Picker - does the same thing.

    You can do this with most any rom, with the AppWidgetPicker app from xda.

    Some Ideas for v3

    I have tested all of the rom's, I must say I like PEv1 better than v2. Some things that I think would be amazing if PEv3 could incorporate that some others have and really make it stand out as long as no performance is lost would be: 1) Easy color customization of the Time, Date, Notification <UD) 2) Ability to install any app to SD <UD) 3) The circular disk style battery in Green to Orange\Yellow to Red with percentage in the middle in 10% increments 4) Droid X player app 5) Google market apps\updates 6) Working Compcache or Swapper 2 works very well and doesn't require added script. These are just some ideas. Keep the audio settings app. It works great. I truly think if you could add these things then you would have the best of every rom out there. Built off of PEv1 base. That one is screaming fast. Thank you.

    Agree with the larger signal bars.
    Green would be cool but i like the red as well
    And a big yes on the launcher redraw fix.can't stand the redraws.

    I really don't see any need for many additions. App removal can be accomplished with android commander, so ROM doesn't need slimming. My only issue is the evolution theme seems to make the ROM buggy. Also, LOVE the incorporated theme with the stock ROM. Droid 2 or X whichever theme. Makes the vanilla experience that much sweeter. As long as I can have elite and evolution theme, I'm here to stay. My only other issue is battery life. I don't know how UD does it, but my phone sips battery juice on UD. It's just too bloated feeling to me. Like windows....

    Edit: Yes adding the redraw fix as a standard. Especially for those that have yet to stumble across it.

    The only enhancement I could bother to ask for is a built-in method to manage the notification light for email/gmail, text, missed call, etc... That is the only thing I liked about CM6.

    I'm on board with the apps from marketplace idea. Not too keen on icons changing in the status bar since I feel those attribute to the clean and simple theme.
