    I recommend AfterBurner. And make sure the themes you're downloading are CM9/AOKP mdpi themes, and NOT CM7 themes.

    I was just about to recommend that one. Also if your a starwars fan my rebel Alliance is red and black.

    If you're talking about the afterburner theme I had already found and applied it lol. Thank you for your help. I am happy with it.

    EDIT: Ha apparently nitestalkr already recommended it. Thanks guys. Looking good.

    And thanks tdm for this ROM. I'm loving ICS on my poopy old Optimus V.
    And if you want a cool looking red boot animation, I can link you to my crimson serpent animation, its a flash able zip.

    I've been pondering what to do about space issues in jb and one possible solution is to override the partition sizes in the kernel to give more space to system and less to data. This would make sdext pretty much mandatory. It would also require a matching recovery kernel. And it would mean a full wipe would be necessary when switching to/from other roms.

    How many people don't use sdext and/or would not want to do this?
    I'm definitely going to try whatever solution you settle on, but like Sammy, I'm a little concerned about the fallout from people not following proper flashing directions. It's inevitable that someone will post a panicked thread, with spelling and grammar that indicates they've been possessed by a LOLcat.

    We like to label them as noobs
    I try to do the best I can to help em out, but the grammar and poor sentence structure, and not to mention the lack of details they provide, get to me sometimes... when will they learn how to google, or at least attempt to look for answers before asking questions??
    Can't live with em.. and well... the other half of that saying would be false xD

    I never knew that was possible.. using chrome?? I'm guessing?? I don't use chrome.
    and you kinda have to link your phone to your Google account if you want to use the play store..

    How's AOSP coming along?
    I only ask because it seems like it's so far behind CM9 and AOKP now.. hasn't even reached early beta yet. Are you dropping AOSP? Or just not giving it as much attention as everything else?

    I like the idea tdm. In my opinion, if your gonna customize and trick out your phone, you need an ext partition to get the full experience. Plus it's a simple process. I miss the days back when i was a noob. Research first, ask questions as a last resort. It just gets painful when every 4 or 5 posts people ask the same question over and over. I say go for it tdm, but in the flashing instructions, just include a quick, simple instruction on making an ext partition or add a link to one of the in depth guides available. As far as doing a full wipe, as long as you use TB, it's painless. I would actually do a fresh install everytime you had an update. Well, until the nightlies, lol

    I'm running jb on my tablet without the vsync and triple buffering. (The Dev is waiting for the binary from TI) and it is still way smoother than ics. I like the idea of using sdext to make things fit. I have been using it forever, and its simple enough. Just label the thread advanced users only. If you get something going and need a guinea pig, pm me. My wife got a new phone and I'm a bit jealous so if the partitions ruin my phone in testing, I won't be too upset, I want a reason to get a new toy.

    yeah i'm using chrome.. I hate IE....don't care for Fire Fox either...makes me wonder if i save a bookmark on my PC if it would automatically show up on my phone...be nice if everytime i wiped and reflashed all my apps would automatically re-install....that happened ONCE....cant remember how i had my settings set to do that


    YUP....save a bookmark on the PC and it shows up on my phone...this could prove to be very irritating

    Are you on AOKP? I think my apps auto-installed the last time I flashed CM9, but it hasn't happened since I flashed AOKP. There's not a PlayStore setting, is there?

    I'm on aokp now....I have the settings set to sync but it doesn't work now.....flashed the latest nightly after a complete wipe and guess what?..
    My phone NOW goes into deep sleep....YAY...lol..I wanna uninstall nova launcher...just stick with the rom's launcher...can I do that?

    if you dont want your bookmarks to sync, delete ChromeBookmarksSyncAdapter from your gapps.zip before you flash... :-)

    you can use whatever launcher you want as long as it supports 4.0... i use holo for both gb and ics... nova and launcher2 have always given me nothing but problems... just make sure you move whatever you choose to system/app before deleting the other(s)...

    you can use any root capable file manager to add/delete apks, etc...

    You can use Titanium Backup to uninstall it, or any system app.

    For those of us on AOKP, andrewnelson23 has found a little work around for YouTube. It's not a permanent solution, but it may work well enough for some.

    Do not use link2sd, mount2sd, or any other 2sd script with this ROM.
    Does this include apps2sd? and what happens if you do?

    I can see enough issues with overriding partition sizes that it's not worth while.

    Instead, I think moving /system/app files to /sd-ext/sysapp at boot might be a workable solution. Downsides include:

    1. No sdcard, no boot.

    2. Must boot into the rom to make space before flashing gapps. Possible workaround: package a custom gapps that installs to sdext.

    Thats all I can really think of at the moment. Sounds pretty clean to me.

    backup everything on your sdcard to your computer. go into recovery. select partition sdcard. choose however much you want. I did one gig (1024) but 512 should probably be fine. wait. put everything back on your sdcard.
