[hide=Installation:]
Place ROM on the root of your SD card and flash via Rom Manager or in Recovery. WIPE DALVIK CACHE, WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET, FORMAT /SYSTEM, FORMAT /CACHE, FORMAT /DATA (a bit over kill, maybe?) but this will ensure that you have no issues whatsoever from the previously installed ROM that carry over.

Special Note: If you use Titanium backup for restoration restore APPS ONLY NO DATA

Special Note: If you use Titanium backup for restoration (shame on you) j/k restore APPS ONLY NO DATA !
What's with dissing TiBu? Yeah, I know it can be abused, especially by those who chose to restore ALL apps & data. But I've restored non-system apps & data many, many times using TiBu without a problem ... following "GLD's Method for a Clean Install and Restore Using Titanium Backup" posted at DF. If there's a bonafide reason for shaming folks, I'd honestly appreciate hearing it, since I've yet to see it being an issue ... and having done so multiple times the past couple of days.

You may have missed the j/k at the end of that line in "internet" speak that means "just kidding". Restoring data using TB has caused countless issues which I've had to troubleshoot as a Rom dev over the last two years. So in the interest of saving myself and the users of this Rom lots of time chasing down issues that have nothing to do with this Rom I gave some advice. Data can easily be corrupted and transferred during a TB backup ask any Rom dev that has their act together and they will tell you the same. It was just a suggestion it's your phone do what you want with it my man.

Making these vids makes you more approachable and you seem like a down to earth guy. I've never owned a phone that you have devved for so I don't know your work directly.
Your defiant kernel was fine the few days I tried it. With so many kernel choices, I hope you don't blame me for trying another.
Also you look like you can pound some beers is another great reason to get on ur rom. lol (if you don't drink, forgive me)
