Anyone try this yet? How do you like it?

    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.
