The Sense 3 Version available from TSN and Rom Manager.

First boot takes a super long time, after wiping the Dalvik cache, it has to rebuild it, and at reboot is where it happens.
This is a deodexed ROM now so the cache files build as your use of the device develops. T His means you will have faster reboots the longer you use the device but on the flip side you will have a lengthy booting process on first boot.
After rebooting let it sit for about five to ten minutes.
Walk away and grab a coffee cause your gonna wanna stay up and play with your newly MODDed ThunderStick all night...

(to install ThunderStick Notifier you can just hook up your phone with USB and answer yes to install TSN. If you answered no previously go to Window Explorer and open up the Virtual Drive with the ThunderStick Icon, Copy TSNUPDATER.exe to a folder of you choice and run it this will download and install the latest version of TSN)

or for your Mobile Device from the market

For what ever reason the notification bar disappears after first boot if everything is left alone for a few minutes after first boot it reappears. Alternatively, reboot.
This only happens on the update.
With the Full ROM there should be no problems.
If you used the update so you could avoid having to re-install apps, use TSN to backup your apps and re-install them after flashing the full ROM.
Creating updates that are able to retain app data is always tricky when everyone is using such a huge array of different types of apps. If an app force closes, I would recommend un-installing it and just re-installing. The app is probably relying on data that needed to be wiped.

Where is the boot animation mp3 located? I was interested in swapping it out with a custom sound
If you use ThunderStick notifier, it has a feature that will let you USSR any mp3 for your boot sound with any rom. To answer your question it is called thunderstick.mp3 in the system/customize/resource folder.

Its only been 3 days, but this is probably the longest I've stuck with one ROM in awhile.
Change log available from TSN

What/Where is TSN so that I may view the changelog? Thanks!
Using a ThunderStick ROM on your device, plug it in to your PC with USB.
If a popup does not display after hooking up your device with USB,
Go in to windows explorer and find the new CD-ROM drive created (virtual drive), On there, there will be a file called TSNUPDATER.exe
Copy this to somewhere on your PC and run it. It will download and install the latest version of ThunderStick Notifier.

The only fix for the VM Notifications that will work with this ROM is the one listed in in this Thread or from Rom Manager or TSN in the Mods section.
The BAMF fix is not based off of the latest leak (I dont think anyway) but is definitely not compatible with this ROM. This ROM uses a different framework.
Up until 2.11.605.3 most things have been interchangeable systemui's, framework files and a lot more but with this latest release it seems that interchanging files between different builds is no longer gonna work (with a few exceptions). This has been my experience anyway, GenII 2.4 and up are based completely on the latest build.
So the GenII VM notification fix will not work with other ROMs and other ROM's fixes will not work with unless otherwise posted.
To be on the safe side, if you find a fix for something else that is broke but it is not specific for ThunderStick Gen II let me know and I will see if I can come up with something similar.
erisshasnobattery was kind enough to put up a step by step on how to do the fix so this took no time at all to complete and worked right from the get go.
If you are so inclined post a thanks for him in that thread.

Oh yeah just to clear this up a little more,
You need GenII 2.4 or later to use the Fix from this post.
If you are using a previous version it will break your install for sure.
