    Hi Paul - should I completely remove Xposed and its modules first? Or wipe its data? Should it be added to the exclude folder? I've used the procedure above, and Xposed is surviving reboots but not surviving switches. I'm only activating it in Sense.

    Thanks for all your help!

    Yes - just noticed I have the same. I assumed this was because I disabled Sense launcher and used Nova, but that isn't right. I dirty-flashed, so will try clearing data for screensaver.

    Thanks Paul - yes, adding com.android.provider.calendar to the exclude folder worked.

    Thanks for the quick response, Paul

    Yes, Google Calendar installed in Sense after removing it from the GE Switch folder. Should I do anything with the CalendarProvider.apk? Should either apk be added to the exclude list?

    Re. Beta 8:

    Synced Google calendar data seems to disappear with each switch, and has to be synced each time in both instances. I have multiple Google accounts syncing, and the calendar data comes from one account.

    Xposed still uninstalls when I switch.

    A great ROM and a brilliant idea - thanks Paul.

    I have a couple of minor but somewhat annoying issues to report:

    1. I have Xposed installed in Sense, however 'app_process' is lost after each switch, requiring a reinstall and reboot.

    2. I installed Google Calendar in Sense, however it is removed after switching.

    Hi Paul - can you confirm, does this enabled menu item provide a 'long press back for menu' option, and thereby remove the black menu bar from legacy apps?

    If so, this alone is worth the hassle of rooting...

    Great giveaway. Now, how do I sync it with an Android phone?

    I think the point is that Honeycomb is a strand of Android designed specifically for tablets; phones would be expected to follow the alternative strand (Gingerbread), with specs more suitable for a small screen.

    From a commercial perspective, these specs make perfect sense, and will appeal to manufacturers; none of the current crop of devices support this resolution, so Samsung, Viewsonic, etc. can get busy selling new tablets to people who've invested in premature technology, rather than having to release updates to 'old' technology, which generates no new revenue for them.

    Couldn't you just have your phone send all calls to voicemail?

    I have the same problem. I can't find any useful information on this issue.

    Indeed - got there in the end. My own finding was that the generally given instruction to envoke recovery mode by holding back / power + back / back for two seconds each was inaccurate, and in fact the timing is around a second for each action.

    It's clear that cwm isn't exactly dangerous, but as it can't be invoked without an operational rom installed, its value is limited. As it also appears to cause an instability, its value is even further degraded. Certainly, I'd be disappointed if Paul chose to release future ROMs in a format that required cwm, at least in its current form.

    I'll continue to experiment.

    I'm glad you've said that, because right now I'm struggling to have this PC detect recovery mode.

    Okay, based on what has been said so far, as I understand it, the dangerous aspect is specifically around losing data, the irony being that CWM offers the best solution for restoring in these circumstances. Presumably, however, there is a genuine and real of bricking the Vega in a specific set of circumstances: if the BSOD happens while rebooting the Vega to USB-Host mode, presumably you won't be possible to communicate with the Vega in order to re-install the system image.

    For what it's worth, with a bit of experimentation I've now had my first BSOD after maybe 100 reboots since installing CWM. A pain, particularly as I don't have easy access to a Windows PC, but definitely not the end of the world.
