So... i took it apart almost as soon as i got it in the mail to add a usb hub.. long story short.. i was unsuccessful. and rather than reopen it and put everything back in its place.. i opted to just throw some electrical tape over the wifi dongle thing and stick it to the back... that got annoying and i took it apart to put it back inside.. and while i had it apart i decided to paint the back... this is what i ended up with.Uploaded with ImageShack.usUploaded with ImageShack.us

After covering wring Wifi with electrical tape, did it get better?You have the unusual unlock screen, how did you make your setting to become so?

well.. with the wifi dongle on the outside i did get better reception.. but not amazing reception... i'd like to solder a wifi pig tail to the dongle for an external antenna.. but i really really suck at soldering.. as for the lockscreen im using dxtop as a home screen thingy.. i found it in the blackdroid repo..http://repo.blackdroid.netim using the newest ecotox rom and downloaded the newer aptoid client from that repo... then added repo.blackdroid.net as a repo.. after it updates there are tons of packages including dxtop.*edit*forgot to mention the hub... the wiring confused me.. the colors were in different orders on the hub and wifi dongle.. so i wasnt really sure what to do.. i think im just going to order one of those connector breakout boards.. whereever i saw those at..

Yeah, I remember the crazy color coding on the wifi usb wire - the hard part of it was the wire had the right colors - red white green black - just in the wrong order! What a nightmare waiting to happen for sure! BTW - love the paint job!
