I once served in the USMC from 02'-08' I purchased the G1 in 2008 and then watched the Android OS turn the mobile world upside down. I then got the Nexus One followed by the Samsung Vibrant. I also have the HD2 running Shubcraft CM6. I've been following the Android community for a while now and couldn't be happier doing anything else. "Go Green, get -C}[\][D[R[-][][D-"

    I just downloaded it and tried it out. It looks ok.. something different than the thousands of floating android bootscreens.. ha ha ha. I’ll keep it since I’ve been a Star Wars fan since 1977.

    does it work on other phones?

  • tmogeek

    Anyone know the directory to use this with the nexus 1 running CM6.

    Uh this phone takes forever to boot. The Vibrant could boot 3 times in the time it takes that phone to boot once.
