Just wanted to give this thread a bump and say that I've been using this rom the past few days after using a couple different versions of 2.2 and its performing LOADS better than those ones were.
For instance, when i was listening to music on the froyo rom, the audio would often skip several times at the beginning of the track, as well as if/when the screen shuts off or the slider is locked. it also skipped like mad any time i tried to multitask and pull up another app while playing the music, or sometimes when i was doing nothing at all. I also notice that a couple games that the tablet could barely run, at really low FPS, now run significantly smoother. I love how when i use a advanced task manager to kill apps, they actually stay dead instead of rising like zombies an dloading themselves into memory again. Even if i set the tablet down for an hour and come back to it and check the list of running apps, its still zero!
I also reallly really like now no special loader (or whatever its called) was used in this rom because they seem to really bog things down and effect stability, and theres no need for it IMO since the homescreen layout/grid is more than sufficient as it is.
However, i have had some weird problems with this rom that i didnt have even in the other roms. I've got a few random app crashes with apps that have always ran fine. For isntance Dolphin crashed a couple times, and ESFileExplorer simply wont work at all, crashes every time i tries to launch, but thats ok cause ive switched to this app File Expert or sometign similar and it works great. Also, i had a hard time getting Market to download anything. I tried the whole clearing the data/cache of the google framework service or whatever, but couldnt find it on the list. so i went down the list and cleared the cache and stuff for anything that had Google in the name and then it started working. and i guess there was a couple times when the text i was inputting didnt appear as i was typing it, like i would type a message in AndChat and the text box would stay blank but when i hit enter i could see my text displayed in teh IRC channel, or i would type something and hit backspace to erase it and it wouldnt erase but if i hit enter nothing would appear. ... just a few weird problems here and there.
But i used the tablet heavily yesterday/lastnight and had no problems at all, everything ran so great, and things just felt way more quick and responsive than i ever remember it being before. Like the keyboard typed even quicker and more accurately. And its SO nice not having that stupid slide unlock screen that the 2.2 roms have, so that when im driving in the car and want to skip a song i just have to touch the screen to wake it up, instead of touch the screen and the have to look at it to find the ccircle and drag it and blah blah, it was a stupid "feature". I had to give up using a couple apps that only worked on 2.2 (like Feedly... but i've been using gReader pro and it works well enough) and the better compatibility with wireless gateway authentication stuff, but its totally worth it.
hvdwolf, please continue to make nice, lightweight roms like this. Im so sick of ppl making them with a ton of bundled, unremoveable apps and unnecessary GUI changes that make everything run slow. even birdie's "lean and mean" light version of his 2.1 rom doesnt run as fast as this on, cause of the ADW loader or whatever its called. I think ~90% of ppl looking for a custom A7 rom are only doing so for market and root access, and thats all that really needs to be included, with all the unnecessary fat trimmed
