Load and boot went very smoothly and quicker than most ROMs that I have tested in the last few weeks. I have to say that is an awesome boot animation! I installed the stock themed ROM with the patch and market fix and selected Launcher Pro before doing any customizing.
Sync with Google did not go very well as only about 60% of my apps restored, used TiBu to do the rest, I do have a lot of apps about 120 so its not surprising to me. The only ROM so far that has restored all my apps was CM6.
This ROM is smooth and very snappy. The stock kernel performed well and I was able to get 12.5 MFLOPs and 1089 on Quadrant, this is good for my Droid with any stock kernel at 800Mhz and actually better than most ROMs. Battery life is a little less than average for me during constant use for about 3.5 hours I lost 40% of battery life.
Everything seems to work well GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi. The few things I did have a problem with was the Shazam issue which has been noted in this thread and a continual FC when trying to change contact information, it is isolated to just a few contacts but nothing seems to fix it. I believe it may have something to do with a Facebook sync that I did, but I have never seen the android.process.acore FC before.
All in all this is a good beginning to a ROM and I believe that these issues and others that have been mentioned will be quickly fixed and the next verzion will be great. I give this a 2.5 out of 5.
