V8
We’re going QVGA only on this one.
Now based on my own source tree build.
Updated messaging app, check settings within app to change settings, now full screen.
Full screen AOSP apps.
Updated Helix Launcher, (app drawer is 5×5 and transparent)
New ‘Car Home’ Launcher from the droid 2.1 update. Nicer square launcher. much more car friendly I think.
Optimize on first boot. It will take a little longer..
Spare Parts now in Settings
No more swap or compache

Instructions:
I recommend you wipe, it may work if you don’t but you may have issues
Boot, when launcher first opens, do menu ->confirgure to set to full screen.
The notifications pull down is accessible by doing menu->notifications while on the launcher.

Known Issues
Possible landscape issues with Launcher
No BT audio
No camera

Again, this is bound to be a masterpiece if the remaining bugs are tackled. But right now it’s at the point that it can be used for everyday usage, Stay tuned for further development!

You can follow development in the original thread.
