    Froyd was being a bit... unstable for me... it froze on me 4 times today and had to be restarted and the battery life was getting on my nerves a bit so I've moved to Elilinux, uninstalled it's native home launcher and put LauncherPro on instead.

    Fingers crossed. :)

    I think that's the one ya, runs pretty good... only time will tell about the battery but the keyboard situation is better and I like the look of it, bit more unusual.

    It also seems to have a lot less useless apps built in that I don't really use.

    hmmm

    not flashed my phone with a new rom since 1.5 which was nearly a month ago.

    how's this elelinux rom going? is it worth a reflash? is it better than 1.5?

    I'm finding it much better, after moderate use for the past 3 days and I still have 50% battery left. Seems much quicker and more stable. :)

    Yeah, I would definitely choose Elelinux over froyd.

    (As it stands at the moment anyway).

    Snap, no problems so far and I've only had to charge it today. Very impressed.

    I currently have froydvillain 1.5, and have tried every combo of kernel/radio, tweaked settings. The battery life on 1.5 is atrocious. This ROM is a vampire.

    Do you find that elelinux 2.2 is better than 1.5 (significantly)?

    also, is everything included in the ROM? I have read a few posts talking about having to install a whole bunch of other things?

    Ie. can I just flash the elelinux 2.2 ROM, or do I need to get a new radio, kernel, etc etc.?

    Yes.

    Nope. Read the dev's notes beforehand though, as there are several options available should you wish to tailor the ROM. They are just options though, and not required.

    Yep, very significantly.

    Again - the Froyd guys are still immense and will no doubt sort out the bugs in the next release but, until then, I think Elelinux is fantastic and I'm sold on it for sure. :) I need to reflash mine with the special edition one at some point.

    Hehe I am currently on Floyo :p . Its android v 2.2.1 (ele 2.0 is too I forgot :/) :p And seems ok :D . Used even the blackmod theme for Elelinux 2.0 :D witht eh new flykernel11 will test more.

    I like the froyd too. But ninpo is taking his time :) . And I kinda like flashing. Not sure how much time those guys can do for a Hero. But ele and floyo devs are rolling :D

    Elelinux and Floyo have the same team of devs? (elelinux and erasmusx?) I know that erasmus give us the kernels, but they work 2gether? Elelinux's rom is based on erasmusx kernels so there should be a linkup

    No, they're two separate people but they do collaborate ideas.

    What do you think of Floyo compared to Ele 2.0?

    Well Floyo has no real themes and not sure he will have :) Not a problem though. What I dont like is trackball flash as notifications.

    The rom itself is clean :) cleaner as ele. (as ele compared to froyd I would say) The latest nightly are nice. Has some nice features. Like the swipe away notifications one by one.

    Speed, well its like the flykernel was made for this rom :) . Its smoother as on ele. Maybe even cuz its the 2.2.1 android.

    Dev. He is nice. Answers all :) (well almost :p my bugging him about the trackball flash didnt work) he is better in english I guess thats a plus to ele :D and he releases his sources.

    I would stay on floyo if there wasnt the trackball flash ...

    The theme is a deal breaker for me. Plus, you can always remove any bloat from a ROM with TB.

    I would like the new 2.2.1 (I mean, it's a bigger number, so it must be better!), but I imagine Elelinux will be releasing a version with that ASAP, so I won't bother with Floyo.

    Well BlackMod from Ele works on Floyo too :) (with the new features) . Eran said to be careful though with theming not from him.

    (and for some reason it seems my nandroids are bad...:( )

    That sucks. But c'mon, you've had so much experience flashing ROMs I'm sure you can have a fresh install up and running in no time :p

    I'm still going to stick with Ele for now. I only upgraded to 2.0 the other day, it's no time to be flashing a new ROM :p

    lol thanks, and strangely a reboot helped. and I was able to nandroid back to floyo. :p

    yeah I would say also stick with what you got now :) . Will just test a gmail notifier if it doesnt help with the trackball and am back to ele :D .

    EDIT: Gmail notifier now there is the green led and trackball flashing :D
    EDIT2: And when I shutdown the notifications in gmail :p and just let the notifier do its job then its all ok :p
