    MyDroidWorld At It Again: Exclusive new Droid OS Release - FRG22 Fastest ROM Yet


    ***** ROM Reviews *****

    Review by YankeeDudeL
    This one is pretty simple, so I'll keep this short, sweet, and to the point

    Initial Setup:
    As reported, it takes quite a bit to boot up. Market synced up fine, restoring the majority of my apps.

    Appearance:
    Not much to report here. Pretty much just a stock theme. I did not try to theme over it, but considering most themes are put together for certain builds, I hypothesize that we'll have to wait for ROMs to start being built for this one.

    Performance:
    Very smooth, virtually no lag. But I'm not getting the great results everyone else seems to be. Benchmarks with both the stock kernel and others were unimpressive. High 200s short bench, and high 1300s on Quadrant, on 1GHz kernels. I suspect to get the most out of this build, we'll need to see what the custom devs can do with it.

    App and System Function:
    Everything worked like it should, including GPS and WiFi. I didn't run into any Market or app issues. This is a very basic ROM, mostly untouched, so you can't expect too much. The battery was well served, as there wasn't much to draw away extra power. Ran cool, lasted as it should.

    Overview:
    Being there were very few tweaks to this, you can't expect a whole lot. Mostly, I think we all just wanted to know how it performed, and it was average on my Droid, at best. As I stated earlier, it'll take a dev to build off of it and optimize. I trust that's taking place as I type this.

    Rating:
    3 out of 5 stars.

    So FRG01B was just released today and P3 already has a newer build available? Damn that guy's good.

    I want to hear the downlow on the actual speed of this ROM. Coming from SS 4.6 it's tough to beat.

    Keep us posted on your thoughts vs other roms. Wondering what differences there are.

    Initial reaction is that it's snappy. I'll have to give it a day or 2 but the redraw for launcherpro seems much better. I wonder what android kernel it's using.

    Thought i was having network problems but it seems to have solved itself. Going from YouTube or the browser into the launcher seems to have no lag or stutter. Renders perfectly...for now.

    Finally got the launcher to hiccup and take its dandy time to redraw. Will report more tomorrow.

    The Nexus actually got 2 OTAs. They first got FRF85(I think) then a few days later got FRF91.

    Maybe this is something similar and Droid users will be getting FRG22 in a week or two

    Flashed. Way, WAY faster than CM6-RC2. Possibly the fastest ROM I've used to date, and I've been doing this for a while. :)

    Wouldn't say there is a huge difference, but definitely smoother than FRG01B.

    I can't disagree with you shadow. Not only is it fast but I like the peace of mind it gives me knowing its made for the Droid. Hope these devs make good of this one.
    This is how I've always imagined the phone to work and the battery life is WOW.

    Replaces bb and I don't know if it works with any themes yet. Then again, I haven't been using any custom themes for over a month because I dunno what themes work with what ROM. Just playing the waiting game right now but I think the liquid frozen ice blueberry will be my next if anyone can confirm compatibility.

    Meh, SS 4.6 has been fast and snappy enough for me so far. I'll wait until SS 4.7 or whatever his next build is that will be based on this. I somehow think it can't be much faster though. I haven't had any re-draw issues or lag with it whatsoever for the last couple days.

    Everytime I try flashing this it says installation aborted and says the file is bad and then goes into a bootloop.

    I was able to install earlier today without a hitch. I would try re-downloading if it is failing to install. I was running LithMod and reflashed to this with no data/cache wipe. Installed perfectly.

    I just switched to LithMod and am currently in love with this rom. Is it faster than LithMod? The only thing is that I love how much customization comes with LithMod and such. So I'm not sure if you can theme this rom yet. Would love to hear your thoughts vs LithMod. I think if I say LithMod one more time I might go crazy:eek:

    I saw lots of people report that this could install over existing Froyo roms without a wipe... so I tried it. Installed over BB 0.4

    Initial boot took FOREVER but it's finally loading up. I'll report if I have any hiccups. Right now everything is VERY sluggish.

    Hey now, Pandora works once again! :D

    Gonna run this for awhile, and if it's solid & stable I'll try slapping MotaBoy's HTC Sense theme over it. It's built for FRF84B so I'm not sure it'll work well, but it's worth a shot.

    FWIW I also applied this over BB v0.4 and then went ahead and applied Fab's Nextheme for BB and everything worked. Initial boot took forever but all is good now.

    Only thing is, how do I get my phone to stop asking me to install the OTA.

    this rom is BLAZING fast, and it's a noticeable difference too. redraw on launcher has been spotless so far and load times for just about everything is NUTS

    Are you guys overclocking this one yet or is it the stock kernal that's giving you such good results?
