    If you actually read any of his resent posts or checked his twitter, you would know that he is in fact working on BB v0.5. Try not to think on other peoples behalf.

    The 10% increments are not going to happen unless Pete starts making his ROMs from source. The vanilla framework does not allow for taskbar battery increments other than 100%, 80%, 60%, 40%, 20%, 10% and 0%. No if's, and's or but's about it.

    Alternatively, you can get any number of apps that provide widgets and taskbar notification on battery level, so please stop beating this poor dead horse and just move on.

    Oh, and to the OP, if that's the one thing keeping you away from BB, then I truly feel sorry for you.

    What is difference between built from source and vanilla framework? Kind of a noob at the terminology... Thanks!

    Built from source means built from source code. Instead of trying to backwards engineer the Android OS, they take the source code, make any changes that they want, then compile the code to make the Android OS.

    Vanilla means straight ol' Android without any enhancements from 3rd parties like HTC (Sense) or Motorola (Blur). Google actually calls this "Google Experience", everyone else just dubs it Vanilla.

    :icon_ banana:I agree with Bendystrawboy. Ultimate Droid is a top notch Rom. I know some people on this site don't want to hear about it but, the fact remains, UD is AWSOME!:icon_ banana:

    Im running UD right now, But lol, i disagree with your statement. I think you made a typo. "the fact remains, UD is AWSOME" needs to be changed to "My opinion remains, UD is AWESOME"

    My CPU usage on my Droid is already at max levels. I'm trying to avoid using any apps that I don't need.

    bottom line, (and unfortunately) no 10% increments in BB 0.5, but Pete already said BB 0.6 WILL be built from source, so maybe on 0.6 :)

    He should be able to implement it. It is just editing an xml to point to another image at a certain battery level. There is no turning this off however, unless you flash a .zip that contains the undited xml.

    Correct--I'm running BB right now with 10% battery increments. It's not a difficult mod if you search the forums. Whether Pete thinks it is important enough to include in the next build is another issue.
