    I want to download this rom, but i just need to know:
    1) Does the battery life weaken due to this rom?
    2) Can I return my droid charge back to touchwiz? (If so, how?)
    Thanks in advance to whoever answers these.

    With 4.1.1 The signal bars reverted to stock, the battery indicator keeps switching back and forth and so do the other indicstors.

    Any clue on a fix?

    I think that was by design although mine don't switch at all and that's fine by me

    no it doesnt weaken battery , the people who have seen battery drop wiped data and this seems to have fixed that problem, most likely a corrupted application or poor code.

    there is a downgrade package in the forums this will bring you back to stock

    Gmail and Maps is already in system. the updates Google pushes out via Market go into /data. And if you put everything in /system and Google pushes and update out it won't update correctly.

    I've gotta ask tho why would you be concerned about space as I'm just curious. It is highly unlikely you will eat up over 1Gb of internal memory just by apps and other stuff installed from the market. Most apps are not very big. Personally to this day I don't get understand everyone wants all this internal mem. For me give me more RAM in DDR2 or DDR3 and the biggest sdcard possible and I'm covered.
    I still have an old school mentality when it comes to internal app storage. I feel a reasonable amount of space should be 2GB at the max of useable space. I do agree with you though I would be a lot happier if we could get 1GB DDR3 RAM so these $600-750 mini computers can run without any hiccups or slowdowns.

    If I had to put a priority I would say Processor, DDR3 RAM, Internal App Storage.

    I have had great battery life so far. You can restore back to stock. Just use Odin and flash the Rooted Stock ED1 downgrade ED2 ROM and then accept the update to ED2 and you will be stock.

    So the cell signal icon is stock intentionally? the wave look was much cooler imo. Is there a way to get it back?

    The white contrast is cool stock against black, but the waves and blue have sex appeal. Altered beast should be wild. Sterilized looks are too corporate haha

    I really like the black status bar and the cell and battery icons. I noticed that the battery changes to stock when usb is plugged in or in charging dock.

    I gotta tell you even with all the problems still in this "alpha" rom, it still kicks butt over the stock rom.

    THANK YOU!

    you like the stock cell bars? Have you seen the ones they were using with the wave effect..? Wayyyyy better.

    Eh. I prefer to have regular bars. Those circular signals and the wavy bars were too flashy and confusing for me. I constantly got confused on which signal is which. I prefer one solid color bar insead of a multicolored image.

    Simple is better. At least for me.

    that's understandable, when I first saw it I was like "WTF!?" Then I just gave in to the feel and title of the ROM, it really is an Altered BEAST. I keep my home screen and app screens free, everything is in the dock, but The status bar and pull down screens are pretty crazy.

    I'm sure someone will make a super stock super clean rom, but this again is like a wild child.

    Hey DroidXCon,

    I really like the Buddies Now widget (surely I'm not the only one!) and was wondering if that's available in AB, or if there are plans to have it available?

    Been enjoying my Charge for about a week now, and I think I want to at least root it, but I'm new to android but I'm not quite ready to commit just yet. I upgraded the OS on my Blackberry Storm a few times but not quite sure I wanna pull that trigger on this just yet. I have, however, been reading this thread religiously. Well done, sir.

    Wow this was so EASY TO INSTALL. GREAT JOB. Im going play around but I do have one question. It asked me if I wanted to install this update, i510.EE4

    I shouldn't install it right? I haven't heard of this update. Weird.

    I am in the middle of installing your AB rom and Odin is stuck at FactoryFS for about 12 minutes now. Any way you can help me out? This also happened to me before trying to do the flash back from ED2 to ED1 rooted which I ended up bricking the phone. Luckily I got it replaced. It may be something with the PC I am using but I have tried various USB ports and Samsung drivers are all ok and all antivirus are shut off. I am nervous to unplug the usb cable or shut the program down. I dont want to brick this one like the other
