6.1 Taskbar seems OK with 6.5 - should I worry?

Hello Group

I've looked at several 6.5 specific custom taskbars, and none seem to be to my liking. They all have icons that look great on a computer screen, but on my phone they become something that makes me wonder "does that blue blob with a silver center mean am I on speakerphone or that I'm getting charged a billion dollars a minute because I'm roaming?"

I'm using instead a 6.1 taskbar, "Spikes MicNeo Taskbar Varient 3 v2" with MightyMike's CDMA fix. The icons are clear and obvious (IMHO)

Because it's a 6.1 taskbar I don't get the Spinning Marbles or a "prettied-up" OK and X button, but that's fine by me.

I'm just concerned because I've read that 6.1 taskbars are supposed to be incompatible with 6.5

Should I worry? Or does the proper response to this question have to do with "looking gift horses in the mouth"

Thanks to all who respond.

Why worry...

if it works it works...the big issue really is taking a 6.1 or 6.5 taskbar icons and using them for 6.5.X which features a smaller (shorter) "taskbar."

If you want peace of mind...there is a 6.5 taskbar fix cab floating around out there...chech Mighty's ROM thread for an attachment.

OK.. I'm a noob so I'm not sure of the thread you mean. And search for a post with the word "taskbar" in it by MightyMike is kind of like looking for hay in a hay stack
