    Do you find Harmonia 2.0b just as useable as any of the other current IHO ROMs, are does it look/feel/function roughly in some way due to it's "betaness"?

    I'm sure LeslieAnn wouldn't mind adding what she feels is missing or what's on her short list of things to do to bring it to a non-beta status.

    From when I was playing with it, it seemed just as usable. Of course I didn't really do a full review of the ROM (you know, use it for a couple days, install all your apps on it, etc etc).

    But from what I could tell, it was definitely very "snappy."

    I will probably make another update to my custom mod when 2.0 is un-beta-ed. lol Of course this will have to completely change since the base ROM is a big difference.

    BTW (somewhat off topic) the froyo theme for CM7 that watskyhotsky found and it does a pretty damn good job of turning your android "retro"

    Would you mind posting a screenshot at some point with your CM7 ROM themed with the Froyo theme?

    You'll get approx. 30MB more user storage with 1.6.1c. Pretty significant in my opinion.

    Yes, I believe you will have to switch to xionia recovery to flash those. I'm going to try using UOT Kitchen myself to whip up something, packages from that will flash in clockworkmod.

    Thank you for this ROM, booting up for the first time now, looks impressive. IHO kept bugging up for me and it was just horrible.

    Of course some of the things I changed to make it seem more like froyo, like in the ADW settings, setting the App drawer to display 4 across, black background, and setting the lock screen to slide.

    You can use newer recoveries to flash the statusbars, just be sure to grab the newest ones as there are two sets.

    You can flash 1.6.1c without 1.5.

    Flashing over old versions should be okay, but remember 1.5 had storage issues, so it's very possibly the cause. 1.6.1c seems to have all of the older issues fixed (finally).

    Also, if you haven't done a fresh/clean install in a while, it may be worth doing.
    I did end up doing a fresh install. I had over 100 apps and it took a while, but everything seems to be working OK again. Thanks.

    I did have a question about restoring texts from either the backup I did with Titanium Backup (also did one with My Backup Root) and/or the nandroid backup I did before re-flashing.

    Is it possible to restore just the texts I had on the phone before I re-flashed it? No, I was not smart enough to do it from GoSMS beforehand.

    you can:
    backup your new install
    restore your last backup, use the tool to save your txts, and then reinstall the new backup.

    I really don't think that this will work.

    The reason I rooted my phone was to install apps on the SD card - the phone has under 200MB available for apps (as we all know). I was constantly fighting the low memory message. After rooting and then running Link2SD, nearly all the apps have been moved to the SD Card. I have over 100 apps on that backup.

    When I tried to restore the backup, it put everything back on the phone, which does not have enough memory to restore everything. Unless, there's a way to tell Titanium backup to restore the app to the SD Card, I think this won't work.

    But you got me thinking, I suppose I can restore just GoSMS and that may bring back the texts?
    I'm not sure how to tell Titanium backup to go back and read a previous backup file, but will check it out.

    IIRC, there's an option in titanium that allows you to either 1) have Android put the files where it wants, or 2) put them back where it found them

    your nandroid has the txts in a database.
    restore that backup, install gosms if you have to, use it to save the txts.
    the other apps in the backup don't matter for this.

    Thanks. I found the option to restore it where it was found originally and set it. Doing the backup in Titanium backup, I chose to restore only the data. I checked, and didn't see the texts in GoSMS. I then chose to restore the apk and data and didn't see the old texts then, either. I rebooted the phone. The old texts still do not show up.

    Before I re-flashed the RAM, I copied the entire SD card to my PC. I still have that. Is there a way just to copy a folder from there to my SD Card now and get the texts back? If I try using the nandroid backup, is it possible to get just the GoSMS text out of that restored? I don't want to restore anything else, just the old texts for GoSMS.

    One other thing that has changed since I started fresh on the phone with Harmonia 1.6c:
    Quick pressing the power button still shuts the display off, but when I long press the power button, I no longer get the options to go to airplane mode, reboot, or the other option I can't remember. Can I make the power button work like it used to?

    If that failed, you either had a bad install or something Titanium restored damaged it.
    This is one reason I dislike Titanium. It's very "geeky", yes, it does a ton and you can restore almost anything. My problem is that it's not always clear what you are restoring. It created quite a few issues for me. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic program, it's just easy to overwrite something without realizing what you are over writing.

    1. No lock screen
    2. Home and search buttons wouldn't work

    not really. they're buried in the backup.
    you'll be restoring a whole backup just to get at the txts buried in it. then reflashing with the newer backup from your fresh install you will make just before restoring the backup with the txts to pull them out.

    You either had a bad download or a bad flash.
    It happens.

    Yeah I must have had two bad flashes. The third time was the charm. It's working great now. :-)

    Leslie just wanted to tell you thanks for this. I've had my optimus since it came out and have run everything but this (was on aospmod for while,now on IHO). I put 1.61 on my wifes phone a few days ago and about crapped my pants today when I saw that it had 17% battery and hadn't been plugged in for 60 hours. I'm switching right now.

    Question: Any plans to further 2.0? And, any ideas on whats up with the new market?

    Thanks again!!
