    It works for about 24 hours, then causes massive crashing with basically every program. Anyone else having this issue? Its the alpha version for 1.1.1...

    Guess Ill have to wait to get a background on my home screen!

    Yup...well, the whole process of upgrading to 1.1.1 with hacks has caused my applications to crash nonstop. I'm in the process (right now actually) of downgrading to 1.0.2 to have something more stable. I knew it wouldn't be perfect, but I didn't expect it to be as bad as it was.

    Haven't had any stability problems with it (yet) under 1.1.1. But does anyone know if there is anyway to make in scroll down or up for more icons... or is it just swipe to the right for a second page of icons?

    I hate it compared to the old Summerboard under 1.0.2.

    Yeah I removed all of the files for Summerboard 1.1.1 alpha (including replacing the one file it replaces because I saved a backup of the stock file "just in case"). Everything's much more stable again.

    Yup, both friend and I noticed extreme instability with most recent SummerBoard (with 1.1.1). So much so, removed it and now running happily and *much* more reliably. Too bad, it's so cool to so easily swap themes, but that doesn't outweigh the need to have a phone I can count on.

    Like I said before, no SummerBoard to test with, but hearing that just turning off "dim wallpaper" is working for some folks. Worth a shot...
