    Absolutely better than stock, and for the quick moment I had it, I believe it's better than Cyanogen.

    I just tested out SS 5.5 and I found the blue theme to be annoying. I am going to try to find a unthemed version

    princess got a galaxy S - while she's not going to root it, some (free) app reccomendations would be really helpful.


    just throw out some names of good apps that you lot use daily, please.

    Hey guys, I'd like some advice on upgrading my GT540 to Froyo or later. I've run out of space on my internal memory and can't install any more apps!

    red machine, Have you rooted that LG GT540 yet?

    You can flash clockwork recovery to your phone then you will be able to flash roms easier

    *EDIT*

    DAMN I THOUGHT I HIT EDIT

    It came with a 2GB SD card, but only Froyo and later supports installing apps to SD card. (it only has 128MB of built-in memory)

    No, I haven't rooted it yet as rooting requires flashing on this model if it has the Eclair firmware installed. I'd rather just upgrade it if I need to flash it.

    had to get a replacement for my evo yesterday. micro usb port stopped working, no charge :(

    they were backordered, so i had to wait a few days. got it now. tried a new rom, kinged synergy - i like it over "fresh", my previous choice. flashier, but still minimal - sense 3, etc.

    i did try cyanogen 7, but i really can't stand it. adw launcher i don't like either. i like the new rosie in sense 3 though :)

    yep, i had it installed last night.i don't consider myself picky but i just don't like how it looks. i think it may have been adw launcher i really didn't like, but rather than searching launchers i saw a rom that looked much closer to how i wanted.

    truthfully, i think it's mostly rosie(sense 3.0) that i like.

    the rounded phone/menu button on the bottom.

    For starters, Lookout. Then ESPN SportsCenter so you can follow your favorite teams, Flashlight, Bubble (level), Barcode Scanner, Wyse Pocket Cloud, and IMDB (so you can prove to all your friends that you are right).

    i need the dedicated dock at the bottom for the phone. i don't know why but having it as an icon is just not an option for me ... that's the way an ipod/phone does it too though, isn't it?

    i know there is a dedicated "dock" for it, but it's still a regular icon. i want it to look like part of the system, not another icon.

    For those of you with an HTC Incredible, the supposed final Gingerbread update has been leaked. Whether or not they are going to update it OTA later is still up for debate, as VZW has been wishy-washy with its decision to continue to support this EOL device. You can nab the update below.

    http://www.androidpolice.com/2011/0...ngerbread-build-for-the-htc-droid-incredible/

    I'll be trying it out this weekend hopefully if anybody wants to wait for some impressions. From what I've heard, there's not much difference in UI, but the texting lag issues are gone, and the phone is faster with better battery life.

    yeah it sucks, i installed go launcher and i like a lot of the features, but i really really want rosie at the bottom, not icons of any sort... i know jr said he could make launcher pro docks any type, but go launcher is set to use icons so that can't, can it? i know it can use custom icons, but they have a set size, no?

    Could do the same with go launcher if wanted. Can incorporate the typeface into the dock and use a transparent PNG instead of using an icon.

    i'm no stranger to photoshop and hacking around on the android's files. i wouldn't have an idea where to start though...

    i don't want you to do it for me, but if you could let me know file locations, etc. if there are any guides to speak of, thanks in advance :)

    oh! i understand what you mean now. make that my background, with the words, then a transparent icon.

    Yup. With Photoshop you can make your dock look however you want. I use launcher pro as its the most lightweight.
