PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless If there's one defining characteristic of Android, it's the operating system's extensive customisability. Since I'm quite curious what you guys are doing to your phones, I figured I might as well just ask you what your phone looks like - homescreens, widgets, applications, lock screen, whatever. Another thing that has me curious - what Android version are you running? Do you use a custom ROM, or do you prefer stock?

I have been a bit shy to try it, how does it run? Is there an update.zip that work with clockwork or do I have to give up on it and repartition like they say on XDA?

Requires a repartition. This was the first custom ROM I ever installed on my phone, I had no prior experience at all. It took me 2 days of reading before I started and a day of taking a lot of care not to screw it up before I had it up-and-running.
If I'd been more comfortable with the process, blackrose largely automates the repartition. Then it was just installing clockwork and the actual flashing, which was totally painless.

Since getting it installed it's been an adventure. I have to use the tiamat kernel as the default one causes me to get sleep-of-death all the time, but on the build and kernel I am running I have a stable, fast device that thankfully is feature-complete enough for me to be satisfied for now. Certain camera functions are broken but that's the price I pay for running preview (not even alpha) code.
