    I root all my phones for various reasons, and have flashed ROM's before on the original Droid. On that device there were clear reasons to flash ROM's and since the community was ginormous, there was lots of information about the stability of various ROM's. So I'm new to the DroidX and wondering if there are any stable ROM's out that might be worth loading up (for fun and for performance boosts - not necessarily speed). I use my phone as a primary phone for work and home, so it has to be stable. Any suggestions?

    I should mention I have absolutely no affinity for Blur at all - I run LauncherPro on every Android device I use.

    I like Fission. It has removed all the blur that can currently be removed. It is wicked fast and the battery life is freaking uhmazing. It has been really stable for me. I get a performance increase running stock clock speeds with ULV. The ONLY thing I'd have to say is the downfall to the ROM is the lack of themes. There should be a lot coming soon but as of now not many. Hope that helped.

    Fission sounds cool. I'll try it. Can I still use LauncherPro with it? I'm ok with no themes as long as that will run.

    yeah you can use LP on Fission. and I just saw on their thread over at XDA that 2.1 is being released on monday. So I dunno if you would want to wait until then? or just install one of the current ones out. I'm currently on RC3 and it's very nice. :)

    Just be sure to follow installation instructions to the T. if not you might have some FCs and other stuff might not work. It is well worth it though.
