Default [ROM] Simply Stunning 5.6~GB 2.3.7

Well, I guess this rom will be the epitome of YMMV, but it has put new life in my Motorola A855 (OG Droid); so much so that I will probably not get the Samsung i515. This ROM runs much better for me than CM 7.1.

So without further ado, here's the two threads (Oh and BTW ChevyNo1 has become too busy to support his rom, but, it is what it is):

[ROM] SS 5.6 (2.3.7) Incl. 1% Battery and Other Goodies

[ROM] SS 5.6 Bug Thread

Read more, post less. All the 'bug fixes' are in the second linked thread. At least that is what I used to make this a very good daily driver. As the first post stated, do NOT use another kernel, nor the V6. At least that is what I have done and it is working better for me than (and I hate to say this) the regular cyanogenmod 7.1 rom.

good luck

And to add, I guess SetCPU would be the preferred method to make your clock settings 'stick' but otherwise, playing Angry Birds and leaving said app(s) are pretty much smooth as silk for me.

You happen to have a copy of this ROM I could get? The original was on Megaupload, which is down due to government crap....

edit: Found one of the links for the unthemed one does work. That's enough for me to try the ROM performance wise, anyway...

I do have a copy of the original rom in my collection, however it is the 'themed' version that I have been using now for almost two weeks without any problems other than what I already posted.

Look to my "Droid Files" link and then this specific file name:

SSD1-GB-5.6-update.zip

The gov't hasn't (yet) shut me down, lol. . . . . my site is chump change and I don't have ads; hence I make no $$$ from what I host. . . .
