    I'm not sure... I think... somewhere...
    I want to know, Evil Eris or Kaosfroyo? I'd be using the latest version of each, I've tried, each, and they both run smoothly. I prefer Kaosfroyo because it has no Sense, but Evil Eris is very stable and very sexy. I can't decide, what do you guys think?

    My lord that was fast, but my real question is stability, or functionality?

    Well... what have you noticed to be unstable? I haven't used Kaos yet, but there doesn't really seem to be any huge issues (other than camera and LED) from what I am reading. I only used EvilEris for about 5 minutes (couldn't figure out how to get a2sd working), so I can't comment on that one. I use White Widow with no problems, working Apps2SD, overclocking, built-in Spare Parts and ADW Launcher... love it so far. I want to switch to KaosFroyo eventually once all the kinks are worked out, but it's gonna be tough to give this one up...

    I used EE for a few hours and then found KaosFroyo and have been with that since.

    I just like the look and feel of Froyo over 2.1...

    edit - and I just finished flashing v24 :)

    My main problem with Kaos is I never know when a new update has been released. I often times skip four or five versions. Is there a way to get notified of the updates?

    I've tried every ROM I could get my hands on and White Widow is about the best IMO.

    I just reflashed my phone to EE3, I found that Kaos was not working so well.
    Nope, can't live without 2.2. Went back to Kaosfroyo 24

    While I liked kaos the sprint branding drove me nuts. So back to xtrom I went.

    All Froyo ROMs are full of bugs which keep me from using them. For now, CELBv2.8 is my main rom unitl CELB CM6 is more stable.
     
  17. WW-4.4 or CELB-2.8 if you want aosp/vanilla Eclair(2.1)
    EE4 when its released, or sensable if you want sense based Eclair(2.1)
    Kaos FroYo if you want AOSP/Vanilla FroYo(2.2)
    wait if you want sense based FroYo
     
  18. there is a non wipe patch you can flash to change it back to vzw btw
    Its in the Kaos_Froyo thread over at xda in the eris development section

    uh....just edit /data/eri.xml :)

    rename this txt file to .xml, and change 'EriText="Android 2.2 FroYo"' to whatever you want, then push to /data

    KaosFroyo 2.4 is with out a doubt is the fastest I have used to date. No bugs at all except the camera which is no big deal to me.

    I prefer Sense, runs better IMO. I tried xtrROM a few minutes ago and decided to go back to EE 2.0.1 until Frame releases EE 4.0. I like the theme of 2.0.1 better than 3.0.

    I am sure I will miss the extra free space in KaosFroyo.
