PocketPlus, HTC, and FTouchFlo...

Ok, so I've built my own rom using Helmi_c's latest kitchen, actually I've built several now, and am still having some issues. Before I started using Helmi_c's WM6, I was using WM5 with SPB Pocket Plus. I really liked the scroll feature of this program and also the "X" close function, everything else though was pretty bland and not all that cool looking to be honest. After discovering HTC Home, I'm 100% sold on it.

So after trying a few different rom configurations, I've discovered a few conflicts:

1) I can't use HTC Home and SPB Pocket Plus at the same time. Therefore I can't get the scroll feature AND the "X" close feature of SPB. (I've tried disabling most of Pocket Plus except for the scroll and "X" close features, but it was way too glitchy and slow with both running at the same time)

2) I really like HTC Task manager for the "X" close function, as it allows me to leave programs open until I choose to close them. However it conflicts with FTouchFlo and locks up or severely lags my 6700. Oh, and another thing weird that Touch Flo does is while scrolling in Internet Explorer, it opens WMP... what the hell? It's done it repeatedly... I'm guessing from little tid-bits I've perused in the forums that this piece of software is still under development and needs some more work?

So, is there another alternative to TouchFlo? Because I really want the scroll feature!

Thanks for your help!

Don

i have found that the Pocket Plus smart closer does a way better job that the HTC closer. so I opted not to install the HTC plugin. I use pocket plus without the Home plugin but instead use the SPB mobile shell.

i have used all 3 in a previous rom..for a long time with zero issues, but the pocket plus only for the safe mode feature. they all worked well. i do find however that touchflo prob conflicted with slide 2 lock. after disabling it it never hanged.. so are u using that too? now im using htc home n touchflo.. i havent installed pocket plus in this rom coz of space issues n ram issues.. im already down to 23 after a soft reset.. but i will do try to include it in the next cooking..
i always felt that the htc task manager 1.5 worked best out of all the x buttons coz it actually closed the application on clicking on x. the others merely minimised it(even the 2.0).this made sure u dont have 2-3 applications running n hogging ur ram... which usually happened in the other buttons.
Also if u use both of the htc n pocket plus x buttons they will def conflict. but there are options in the menu to disable one of them. then they work good along with the touchflo..
i think the touch flo is irreplacible and really cool as it actually scrolls in ALL the programs ...

I'd recommend posting your selections file to show folks specifically what packages you're installing to see what is conflicting.

Interesting. I'm using PP4 and the HTC home, and have only had issues of a short lockup while PP loads. I had disabled some functions such as buttons IE and files on PP, thinking they were conflicting, but it made little difference. I do find that customizing the HTC home affects performance so I minimize the changes to the plugin and all is well.
The only changes are transparent background and clock. If I change the icons it starts to bog the system down, particularly on reset.

Thank you in advance!

Oh, and another thing... totally off topic, and you can flame me, cause I didn't do a search before I asked, but I tried to use SprintTV because in the kitchen it says free for all carriers, but I couldn't get any of the programming to load... anybody else tried this and had success? I'm on Verizon.
