    Fix permissions in Rom manager or download rom toolbox from the market. Also with stock, you will need to do an "apply at boot".

    @Moonpig

    Fancy Widgets in the market. Has a nice clock. You're welcome!

    Should I get the Samsung Nexus S, LG Optimus 2X or use a crappy phone until November/December and then look for the new phones that are supposed to come out October/November?

    LG Optimus 2X gets my vote, stronger camera and a MicroSD card slot. Dual core 1Ghz with a Tegra 2. Much much better phone, about twice as good as the Nexus S.

    Sorry i misworded this post. I was on droid and wanting to give you a quick reply.

    Leave it disabled if on froyo as it runs smooth as is, saving yourself some cpu cycles and edging battery life a touch.

    This LFY 1.95 is the fastest rom I have ever used. I have yet to get a force close or any lag. I will try to stick with it if I can deal with the jacked up incomming call screens.

    I got a fix for that; flash a different theme. I use Revolution:
    http://android.markjohnston.us/DL/LFY/THEMES/RVFY1.95.zip

    Here's a topic I posted for themes on that rom. Then again I can cook a theme if you want me to

    I'm going with a 3 year contract, so budget would be 200$ or so (O2X is 99$). I will listen to music, use Wi-fi, and perhaps play a small amount of games. I will text occasionally. idk if I can cope with a crappy phone xD

    In Canada... Videotron. Uses same band as T-mobile

    The things that I do like about the Nexus S is the screen (AMOLED), that slightly curved glass, and the roundness of the phone. I was leaning towards the O2X anyways :)

    Thanks all!

    Got a link to a wireless shop? I can take a look around if you want me to. but O2X so far got me hooked. Hell if I was able to i would get one myself.

    But do you think it would be worth the wait to get the likes of Samsung Hercules and HTC Ruby?
