    I guess the answer to that would be of assistance, it is smoother and faster than stock, mighty dream and dream rom. I have tried all these roms and this is by far the smoothest. Live wallpapers run smooth on it, although I have not done any speed testing others who have show a marked increase compared to the other roms mentioned. if you are interested please read up via the link I have provided.

    I 2nd this rom. It's fast and it's awesome. The few other roms I've tried all seem to run well, but they have the same feel of the origional android.

    For the people that have tried this, would you say this is one of the better ROMs right now? Or should I stick with my recently updated Radioactive Froyo 1.8.5??

    I would stick with 1.8.5. The rom posted is a port based on 1.8.5 and contains no other changes more than cosmetic changes.

    I loaded Interceptor last night and it feels really nice. The touchwiz thing will take some getting used to though. If I can't figure out how to make screen #2 the home screen though I'll probably go back to launcherpro. The rom though feels great on the phone.

    I also liked launcher pro. I don't think there is a way to make a default screen other than the home screen 1 when you hit the home button. I've tried if someone else figures it out please tell me. But I'm getting use to it quickly. You can add (menu - edit) more screens, up to 7 and there are dots at the top which will quickly get you to that screen. I really like launcher pro when you hit the home screen a second time and it would show all your screens, but I've found the dots at the top are much quicker and more useful.

    After reading lots of bad reviews of touchwiz and never hearing anything good about it I thought I would never want to use it, but I'm quickly becoming a fan, even though it has the feel of an iphone rip off.

    Basically it's awesome for now, and as soon as something better comes along I'll jump ship, but it's a lot of fun at the moment or on the moment. (are you tired of those jokes yet haha)

    It's installed from the SD card in recovery mode, so it shouldn't.

    But it's recommended to start with a fresh 2.1 with root when you first switch to it so you will wipe it when you do that. Once on interceptor you don't need to wipe again unless you "brick" it and need to start over.

    If updating from a previous version of this rom or from stock de03 w/root, flashing from recovery won't wipe the phone. OTH, if you've been using another rom, it's a good idea to flash back to stock de03 before flashing this rom which will indeed wipe the phone.

    Noobnl's has nothing added in the way of eye candy, about the only thing he added was the 3d gallery which he has since removed. It's about as vanilla as they come, which is fine by me. Dearmas's rom comes themed with added software that he giddily takes all credit for. Personally, I find Dearmas's constant chest thumping, the complaints I've seen about negative comments being removed from the threads with no notice and the whole points system thing to be an annoyance. I tried his Ultimate 5.0 because he claimed it fixed the lockup issue, it didn't fix it one bit. I tried his Interceptor v5 yesterday, but I'm not into heavily themed roms. It seemed to run fine in my brief test, no faster than noobnl's and maybe a little less battery life (not nearly long or scientific enough to be sure). Flashing interceptor is much more involved than noobnl's (or just about anyone else) and the "you better have points if you want the final version" threat is a big negative issue for me. I went back to noobnl's 1.8.5. I doubt I'll try v6. I wouldn't fault anyone for digging Dearmas's stuff, there's a lot to like. It's just that I get the feeling that when I'm on his site I'm dealing with a bunch of 13 year old, and I'm way over that.

    I have to admit that I agree with you 100% on that. I've been a big supporter of dearmas since I tried his first ultimate dream rom but that threat has me wondering where he is going with this...

    No one ever said he made everything in his roms work by himself, but he puts it together in such a way that no one else has done yet from what I've seen. I was ready to pay the big bucks to upgrade my phone without a rebate but honestly now I am pretty happy with it using his roms. When he or I finally move on to another phone I'll probably hit his donate button to say thanks.

    Agreed and battery life is AWSOME! Though I really think AMS isn't quite ready for prime time. Too many things missing from the site. I.E until after I mentioned the lack of Voicemail on the ROM and the need for a kitchen with apks to replace what was removed from stock, someone finally posted them to the downloads folder. And before that to their own site. I also noted a lack of experience in helping with answering questions (you excepted KIDD). All said, it is a Wonderful ROM.

    The site is down Link isn't working. Either he is putting up his v7 or I got banned w/out warning for my comments in my last post here.

    Really want to try this Rom out, but can someone help me to with step one which is to flash it back to stock. Please provide a link if necessary. Very much appreciate it.

    BTW, where can I get that Grass wallpaper?

    The first step is to flash the stock rom with recovery which is available here:

    file

    That establishes root for you and puts a stock rom on the phone. Install that, log into your google account and allow it to completely synch everything, then boot into recovery and flash the rom.
