    LF, to supplement my previous post, Steev's launcher fits the unit much better and seems to be smoother than the stock one. I do like it. Seems toblock up less too. Also the launcher does not respond in portrait mode for tasks like wallpapers and widgits. The gallery does not pull from the extsd card. Also if u use the gallery to load a desktop background it does not display the full image even when expanding the selection.

    I've been trying out volcano beta 13 on the 1024.

    I've been getting my battery drained by what appears is mobile network signal.

    Unchecking the mobile data in the settings did not shut off the mobile signal.

    The next thing I'm trying is putting it into airplane mode and then turning on the wifi.

    I was able to install VolcanoB13 on a MID8024. Everything seems to work well but the system seems a little sluggish. (I'm comparing to Nefarious 2.3 rom)

    In Quadrant I get 1400 versus 1600 (in 2.3). Wifi seems a little slow too. I'll keep testing it. Is there anyway in 3.0 to disable the Honeycomb theme? I disabled it in the Nefarious rom and it made things faster (although that was 2.3).

    Anyway thanks for the rom and keep up the good work!

    I'm using this ROM now for 2 weeks on a daily basis. Most of the time it works. This is what I found so far listed in order of most annoying:
    - Wifi needs sometimes to be stopped and restarted in order to work.
    - Sometimes applications get "uninstalled" I don't know why. Luckily I can re-install them through Titanium.
    - The gravity sensor not working is a nuisance.
    - HW support for video would be great
    - Camera is my last one.
    - after sleep I usually need to pop out en back in my SD card.
    For the rest this is most usable. I installed juice defender and RAM manager which seems to help.
    Any progress? New version?

    well, Thank god for On screen volume controls in the honeycomb. my tablet fell off the table the othe rnight and the volume up button doesnt work any longer. it is broken. :-( I tried to resolder it but didnt work. Oh well. vol down works and the on screen display comes up. fortunatley dont need it much. so... while I had it apart, I swapped my 4gb internal for a 16gb internal. ran the install again and it works great. nice large SD card partition. If only there was a way to save files outside teh sd card partition that woudl nto get zapped on a new flash.

    took the old internal card and repartitioned it to the full size so it is now fully useable. YAY!

    So, the "uninstalled" issue is apps getting moved (for whatever reason) to SD (not extsd). If an app is moved to SD and you restart the unit it will be uninstalled or rather ghost installed with a phantom showing up in the application list but not runnable. So just make sure it stays in internal memory and it will not be removed.

    I also installed Chainfire and it seems to make things faster but I am not sure why.

    Great work on this rom, with stable wifi, rotation, and camera it could be great
