    Two questions on the status bar, not even requests for fix's... just questions to be answered, you would think this would be easy enough... yes no?
    I'd rather have him working than answering my questions, if he chooses to do so in his spare time. Many people have lives beyond this, you have to respect that. Be appreciative of what you have, and learn that everything worth getting is worth waiting for.

    Work takes time, words take seconds. I am appreciative, and patient, and I've been patient for a while now. Also, I do believe I've stated that I'm aware of his life "beyond this"... still, I attend college and work and still have time to do idle chit chat here, I ask no more of him than I would myself.

    I try to tackle this.
    When I first got my DX people wanted to mod the notification bar have it say things other than verizon and change it to black.

    There is a way to do all this. What your wanting shouldnt be too hard. BUT it might be on the optimus. Seeing as how things like mms are overly complicated I would think removing notifications from the notifications bar could be complicated.

    Skinning the bar tho is fairly simple process. I suggest maybe using your google-foo and seeing how its modified and if you can just skin it out.

    Personally if I was the dev of this rom, I would have ignored the question to. It seems a bit condescending and the follow ups have been kinda demanding.

    Eh, be that as it may on whether he perceives it the same way or not... I just want to know how to remove something (Without the obvious problem of there being a gaping spot still taking up space) from the status bar. He modded it, he can make a rom, I thought he'd be the smartest one to ask such a thing.

    Thinking about it more, there probably is away.
    If you turn on airplane mode the bars and 3g icon goes away and the airplane shows up. And so on and so forth, so theoretically its possible to edit the code to just not show the icons in the notifications bar. The real question is no is it possible but how hard would it be? And is it something more people would like? If only you and maybe three other people want it, its not something most people would spend time on.

    Again I suggest google-fooing and see what you come up with. We both know you know how to use google..just off the top of my head.

    As far as processing power goes, this phone is fairly slow compared to other modern phones. I wouldn't expect too much out of it for gaming.


    On a side note, does anyone know the full implications of:
    debug.sf.hw=0
    in build.prop?

    I hear other roms have it set to 1 for a smoother UI:

    This option controls the way the OS renders the UI! (hw=0) Uses the CPU to render the UI and (hw=1) Uses the GPU to render the UI! The original 1.6 builds for the Streak have this option to (1) and by some crazy reason the 2.1 builds (including Modaco's r2) have this to (0)! This is why you think that the Build is slow!
    debug.sf.hw setting - Android @ MoDaCo

    I see it was enabled in a previous Rodimus release but it is disabled in the most recent one.

    New version posted of the ROM as well as the Black and Blue theme. Bluetooth and wifi location fixed with some other improvements under the hood.



    As for removing icons from the status bar, it requires decompiling services.jar and editing statusbarpolicy.smali. Changing the color of the status bar requires editing the png. In the future, utilize google to find yourself an answer. Responding or not responding is my prerogative regardless of how long it takes.

    P.S. I didnt realize i had to do this: And the file I have attached to this post. Download it, unzip it, and put the 2 files inside in your android\platform-tools folder created from installing the SDK.

    Idk what it means.

    You're posting in the wrong thread.

    Nope. Haven't bothered with that yet.

    Added a flashable zip to remove the clock from the Black and Blue theme. Gives more space in the status bar.

    Anyone know how the battery life is compared to the Stock + Xionia ROM? I'm on that now but ready to try something new. My main concerns are battery life, and how much space is included in a ROM (as right now I only have like, 12mb left )

    I thought you changed it to 10

    Also the popup menus look weird like half gingerbread and half froyo.

    Space-wise the Stock + Xionia ROM is better. Once I install all the apps I need, I have about 60mb left on Stock + Xionia vs about 35mb on Rodimus. In terms of battery use, I didn't see much difference (compared to CM7-based ROMs these two are much better when it comes to battery use).

    Didn't mean to come off as anything bad, I just really wanted to know. That being said, thank you very very very very very much for the zip to get rid of the clock. In case I want to revert to full stock for any weird reason, is that reversible? Doubt I will need to, but it's still nice to know.
