    If I'm going from bb .2.1 to .4 do I have to wipe data and cache?
    You shouldn't have to wipe data and cache from any of the other Froyo builds. So, you should be fine

    I had some trouble with rom manager for the first time getting over to bugless beast.

    It's a good idea to flash rom manger 2-3 times. My backup didn't work from Rom Manager so when I got stuck in a boot loop I had to wipe everything, reload an older froyo build I had, and get back running with that.

    THEN I did the three re-flashes, downloaded BB .4 onto the sd card, rebooted into clockwork mod recovery for manual update and was good to go.

    One member recommended NOT using OTA updates with rom manager and froyo, to instead download them on the PC, move them to the sdcard and apply it from there in manual mode.

    That worked.,

    and btw if you remove the stock mms with the scripts, then google voice will not get push sms for you. As soon as you put it back on, google voice will receive push again.

    Yesterday was my first full day with BB.4 and I was impressed. I unplugged my phone at 6:30 am and it died sometime after I went to sleep at 3AM. So battery life is good for me. The phone mostly was idle from 7am-4pm (work) but then after that I was texting people and calling people the rest of the night. Not much data going on but its a darn good start.

    I am clocked at 528mhz, stock for the rom i guess, and the phone is so quick I really dont think i even need to download another kernal. Might try anyway to see if any use even less battery.

    Very stock android, i think it includes some visual tweeks but I havent found them yet. will play with it more today.

    IIRC, the BB.4 ROM/Kernel is already OC'd @800mhz. FWIW.

    As for me and my battery life...... I think I discovered the cause of my atrocious 10-15% drop per hour... I'll report back after a few days of testing to be sure.

    I noticed the same thing.

    .4 is running great for me.

    In setcpu, go to settings and make sure your device is set to autodetect, not droid.

    I am using BB.4 and I like the RedLine theme by roberj13 from the rom manager, I also got the goodies folder from JRummy to add a new boot animation and new live wallpaper

    Hey everyone, I was just curious as to where to find good themes that are compatible with the newest BB release. What themes are people running on their Froyo Droids? Also, if I want to revert back to the original BB v0.4 theme, how would I do that after installing a new theme? And finally, is there any drain in performance or battery life (as when you use an alternate launcher from the Market)? Thanks!

    Thanks for the tip. Boot animation I dont care about because my phone is rarely off. But themes I like

    Does anyone have a black bar mod for 0.4? And not one where it changes the Widgets and all that, just one for the status bar?

    I am using 928 black glass. I love it. He has a back to stock update.zip if you need it as well.

    Not sure about the battery questions. Seems the same but .4 has been harder on the battery than .3 for me.

    .4 has been pretty decent for me. At the end of the day, around 11ish at night, I usually have around 30% remaining. I usually unplug the phone at 8AM, so it's not too terrible.

    Just installed nextheme for bb v0.4. All in all, it looks amazing and runs well. Only thing is, it seems as if the signal strength is not displayed properly.

    EDIT: I put it on airplane mode, and then turned airplane mode off. Now the signal bars display perfectly. All in love, I really love this theme. It takes virtually no toll on the battery or the speed of the device. I'm guessing this is because of the fact that its not simply a launcher application, but rather a full-fledged UI modification?

    I don't like the fact that it changes your Widgets, icons, and all that. I just want the status bar changed to black lol

    +100 for this rom, I love it. I just rooted a couple days ago for the first time and I tried a few different custom setups and this one rocks! Thank you for all the work that was put into it!

    Since Im a newb still to this rom, and well rooting in general. Do the BB v.04 themes that can be found on this site in the sticky, work on droids as well? I just install them the same way I installed v.04 correct? probably a dumb question but I'd hate to make a mistake if I can avoid it
