    I've been running smoked glass 6.01 for about a week now, and before that sg 5.01 for about a month. Other than bugless beast, I haven't tried any roms out. I'm quite pleased with SG, it seems stable and speedy. I'm kind of wanting to try out something new just for giggles. Any suggestions? (and why of course)

    Well I have flashed almost every rom and found some good ones along the way. But now that I have been running Cyanogen...I can't get away from it. Once you turn off the LWP's...it is fast and everything is so smooth in the rom. Little things like fullscreen browser just set this ROM apart from the rest IMO.:D

    Running BB .9 right now. I have been switching between that and cyanogen. Cyanogen is really nice but my phone was running warm and my battery was taking a hit.

    OK, all the Cyanogen posts got me interested.

    So I,

    Made a nandroid backup of current ROM (ChevyNo1 Simply Stunning v2.0.2).
    Installed ROM Manager app.
    Flashed Clockwork recovery.
    Made a Clockwork backup of current ROM.
    Downloaded and flashed CyanogenMod ROM v5.0.5.3
    Played around.
    Made a Clockwork backup of Cyanogen v5.0.5.3.
    Flashed SPRecovery with the DM Updater app.
    Booted into SPRecovery.
    Restored nandroid backup of Simply Stunning 2.0.2 Just to see the ease of switching back.
    Everything is still good.
    Reflashed Clockwork.
    Restored Cyanogen v5.0.5.3 backup.
    Downloaded and flashed bekit 1.2 GHz 7 slot kernel.

    Running smooth and still testing it out.

    BTW, the updated ROM Manager now can flash SPRecovery.
    Makes it easier to switch back and forth.

    The Ultimate Droid ROMs are the best imo

    i am doing a super mod that does mega stuff and the colonels are all lined up. its insane. it is way fast and super mega and powerful and you only wish you had it, it runs flash version 20.2 and its just more than anyone can handle, its in extreme beta, it turns the phone into an HTC but at the same time it makes it run on ANY NETWORK! I got it from... lets say "A FRIEND" yep, i love it

    I am doing something similar myself except my focus is on letting my Droid run native Windows applications (both 32 and 64 bit). So far so good but Autocad is running a little slow :mad: The 3d video is superb! I just hate wearing those funny glasses while using my phone :cool: Tomorrow I will work on "thought activated bluetooth dialing" as there have been many requests for this feature.

    I am on Cyanogen 5.0.5.3 and before that it was Chevy's Simply Stunning. I am still a fan of that ROM but Cyanogen has me hooked. I think that other than trying out different MM themes and updating I am home.

    NexBeast .9 is by far my favorite so far.

    BB .9 I tried SS 2.2 but it was running a little warm so I went back to BB. Cyanogen is nothing special IMO, BB seems to run better and faster so I am sticking with it for now.

    If you like BB .9, you'll LOVE Nexbeast .9...it is pretty much BB .9 on steroids

    What does it add besides the theme? I am not a fan of themes, I like the stock look personally.

    It has the 3D launcher w/ 7 screens. Also comes with either Chevy's 1ghz kernal or AdamZ's. I'm not really a huge fan of themes either but this one is very simple and clean. It's not overbearing with colors. You should give it a try, if you don't like it flash back :p!

    I'm quite in love w/ the Ultimate Droid ROMs. I've personally gotten the most optimized performance from them, and it's the best looking ROM for me. I'd love to show a screenshot, but I forgot how to do it, lol.

    Personally, I've never tried a bad ROM, and I love that they all have their personal flair. That's what so great about the Droid. You can truly make it your own.
