On this stock rom I cannot open Sysctl Config. It force closes instantly, Ive tried uninstall and redownload but it still does it. any ideas?
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!

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:

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

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.
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.
