BOYPPC-SHIFTPDA's CM7 Go Ex V42 200dpi ROM

This is the MAGLDR recovery version of Cyanogen 7 Gingerbread ROM with Go Ex launcher, 200dpi screen. The ROM is very fast and low battery consumption, but I'm so used to MIUI ROM now that I hate having to re-download everything after a ROM change.  Of course there are other backup/restore software, but it's just not as fast as the MIUI backup utility.  200dpi screen makes everything small, but you can fit more on the screen.  For people with bad eye sights maybe this is too small, but I have perfect eye sight so it's not a big deal. I'm not sure if it's 200dpi, but I remember reading the post saying that 200dpi would make the scrolling and other transition effects more smooth.  My verdict is that the ROM does respond very fast so I was pretty happy.  But I did experience occasional

I backed up my data from another MIUI ROM and restored it on this NDT ROM, for the most part it was working fine, but all of a sudden I can't use the auto-rotation feature, my phone would keep on rebooting once I change the rotation of the screen.  I turned off auto-rotation, then everything was fine again.  I thought something was wrong with the build,

A little background story


It seemed a long time ago that I was still running WM 6.5 and android with dual boot on the HTC HD2.  At first I got a Sony Ericsson X10H, I couldn't stand how bad the software was.  Sure I loved the look of the Sony phone and the camera was really nice and the flash was bright, but I can't do anything else with the phone properly.  It didn't have hardware multi-touch capability either so it was really hard to navigate.  Now the X10H has a software mode for multi-touch so I guess it's not all bad now.  But I couldn't wait so long, I would go mad.  Didn't know what I was thinking when I got the X10H, just wanted
