    Take your pick. They're all so similar, it's almost silly. And ... keep in mind what works best for someone else may not work best for you.

    They are all the same, more or less. Not sure what the community opted to go with this disjointed method of creating 25 rom's that do the same thing instead of just working on one good rom.

    But I digress. Anything worthwhile will be based on the ESE53 and will have overclocking and wifi tether. Aside from that, there shouldn't be much of a difference.

    If you have a particular theme or special program you need, then make your decision based on that.

    haha Yeah, they are all so similar that a new dev is being banned from alldroid every week due to accusations of everyone ripping each other off.

    Heffalumps and woozles I tell ya.

    Personally, I really like ChevyNo1's work. The ere25 SS rom he released last week is VERY stable on my phone. Of course, I also had to snag the Greek35T launcher2.apk, since Chevy doesn't use Launcher2 on any of his ROMs.

    I simply used the stock ESE53, and rooted it. Then I added the sprecovery.
    That's about all you have to do with this new rom, seeing as all the cool apps are already on it. And once you do this, you can then use nandroid to restore to a OC'd 2.1 kernel, if you want to OC.
    ... not much reason to use a so called "custom rom".

    I've been waiting for Taz to release a 2.1 kernel, because I like his work. One thing I don't like are these kernels that force 10 slots for cpu frequency (or anything over the normal 5). But Chevy's new 2.1 kernels are all 5 slots, so I used nandroid to install one of those.
