Ok thanks for your thoughts on that, at the moment I'm stuck between Gen X and R64, I think I like R64 just because it's more clean and professional looking. I also tried tangerine which is a port from a Nexus S theme, that's a very polished theme, just not me. One thing I love about Gen X is the cool animations :P

I just flashed Doc's v9.9 ZSJPG Rom and swapped from Gen X to R64 theme. It's pretty nice and I like the notification bar a little better as it's readable now. I have not noticed a dramatic speed increase with ZSJPG after installing all of my apps (130+)

Wow, 130 apps is insane.

I did try something different, I got the Va Green Mod theme as a base and added bits and pieces from R64's Radioactive Green theme(mainly the notification bar). Turned out alright, I guess.

Does anyone have a cwm flashable file that can reinstall Swype?

You can do it manually; Swype is made up of 2 files, swype.apk, and libSwypeCore.so - using Root Explorer set to R/W:

- copy swype.apk to /system/app
- copy libSwypeCore.so to /system/lib
- reboot

Pretty sure that should work!!

If price wasn't really an issue, would you guys get a Huawei X5 or this? When is the Galaxy 2 coming?

Soon to be first time Android user.

Just installed Doc 9.9 ZSJPG Rom. Looks good so far. I like that they have modified the power button to include Recovery and Download options, was used to them when using Darky's rom.

I was having issues with ZSJPG being slow (random pauses) so thought reformatting from EXT4 to RFS and back again would help, ended up not being able to boot so just reflashed the rom from CWM and now it's a lot faster.

So are you still running RFS?  I have to say that EXT4 doesn't seem to make much difference speed-wise, and in some cases, it almost feels less-smooth than RFS. . . . . .Who'da thunk it? Surprised

I'm using EXT4 now, I find RFS is still a lot slower for me as I have a lot of apps it tends to get fragmented very rapidly.

Yeah that makes sense - I don't ever have a lot of apps installed (around 65), so it probably doesn't have the same impact.

EXT4 is supposedly more battery-efficient than RFS too, but I've never found much difference.

Just read on XDA before that Doc is saying ZSJPG has a few bugs - will take another look next week.

Have you done any tests without any lag fix?  I still haven't lag fixed, haven't in probably 3 months and I find the phone smooth and responsive.

Running doc's build 9.9 and I'm getting that bug where sometimes all the sound starts going to the small front speaker instead of the speaker on the back. does anyone know how to fix this from happening? apart from this and asphalt 5 disappearing after re-boots 9.9 seems fine and quick.
