Well I’m back to using a regular nightly now they’ve merged in the slide-keyboard revert. Its all working pretty well except that dialler is eating the battery.
I was playing around with ROMManager and found that once or twice it didn’t reboot into recovery when doing a backup, although it seems to work fine if you select “reboot into recovery” and I think its been fine when installing a new ROM from the SD card.
Anyway I found that holding down Vol+ and the power button doesn’t work anymore, nor does vol+/menu/power as some recommended. However vol-/power works, as does vol+/home/power!
