I really have to look into fixing that button to open the manually entered city. I didn't even know about that button until you brought it up, so I can't promise as quick results. I usually take a week between releases to find more bugs.
And as for the GPS Location.. to get that working would take a lot of time. The deal is that there are many other dependencies that package needs, and I'd have to sit and find out what they all are, and cook them in. Unfortunately, I don't have time to do that.
To see the performance impact of the weather graphics on the UI, go to the weather tab and remove all locations. Notice when you click "Menu" on the bottom right the smoothness of how the menu opens. Now add a location, update the weather, and repeat. You should see the menu slide up noticeably slower. Now image that effect taking place on the everything in the entire home screen. That is why I disabled weather from appearing on the home screen.
Thanks for the kind words! I more or less figured I would be the only person to use this rom due to the fact is it is neither a real 'Lite' ROM or a full 'Sense' ROM. So I really hope others are enjoying it like I do.
I enjoy seeing what you do with my beta kitchen setup
I have an idea that I think would be really up your alley since you appear to have a lot of time to devote to the i920 projects. It was something I was messing with prior to my ooberlite but I think it would be a beneficial project to bring to the community and it would span over multiple devices and possibly be the most kick-ass plan to hit modaco in a while.
I think you should research utilizing a ramdisk mixed with the use of extendir to fully unlock to potential of the i920. If you can use extendir to house manila from the windows directory and or trick manila to think its still in the windows directory, and host it and all required dynamic link libraries on these virtual windows directories, while realistically being loaded and RAN from RAM, I believe Sense will be run at the fastest speed that it could possibly be run at.
The entire system will be boosted. Page pools could be minimized because relevant packages will be installed to RAM at boot.
It would require mortscript, extendir, and ramdisk.
Or maybe I am just hallucinating...
