    I have run a bunch of Froyo roms already and nearly all of them have had significant bugs. Is there any suggestions for a froyo rom that is the most reliable and stable at this point, or am I just being unpatient? I'm running ROM Manager, any suggestions from there? Or is elsewhere better.

    You aren't going to get an answer to this question. Everyone will say something different. It depends what kernel you choose, what base rom, theme, what apps you use, your individual Droid hardware.

    This is pretty much something everyone has to figure out for themselves.

    For what it's worth I use Kangerade Red with P3's 1.2ghz ULV kernel.

    I'm stable as granite. Chevy SS v4.0 with Chevy LV 1.0 Kernel clocked back to 550/800 in SetCPU. The ULV kernel gave me trouble when the CPU was working really hard (during flash streaming, for instance)

    nstallion is correct. The answer to your question is very subjective. Ask 10 people and you're bound to get 8 different answers. And kernels are the trickiest part. What works with one particular ROM on one person's phone won't necessarily work on your phone. For me, P3Droid kernels work best (they're the only ones I can use above 1.0Ghz). I'm currently using JRummy's Kangerade - NexTheme (found in ROM Manager). On my phone it has been the most stable. I'd also suggest you try out the Froyo ROMs from ChevyNo1 and Bugless Beast (both available in ROM Manager). The only way you're going to find out which is the most stable Froyo ROM is to try some on your phone.

    Yup - just for reference, I am running Pete's BB 0.2 (I manually applied the fixes the he included in 0.2.1) and then installed Fabulous' NexBeast theme over that, and am using the gjdlfj 1.2 GHz LV .32 kernel and am rock solid stable. Manga apps (Manga Droid and Manga Viewer) tend to run the phone a bit warm, but I easily get several hours of reading out of them without the phone ever rebooting / powering off.

    The main reason this is going to be subjective is that all of our DROIDs are different, as is evidenced from the threads where folks complain that their DROIDs cannot do above 1000 MHz OCs, whereas the rest of us are easily able to run at 1200.

    I've tried different ROMs like others have said and right now I'm using Kangerade with P3's ULV 1.0Ghz . I found that for my Droid 1.0Ghz is most stable, but I have found a few 1.2 kernels that work almost as well. Just flash flash flash till you find that sweet spot.

    I've used BBeast, NexFro, and now Atlantis Blue (Succulent Desire) and all have been stable for me. The issues I had at first were w/ kernels.

    I've only ran BB and Kangerade....both with Chevy's 1.0 ULV.

    For me Kangerade was much faster as well as much more stable.

    Decided to try the Team Chaos Froyo ROM (in ROM Manager and on Alldroid)...no theme, but seems quite stable.

    Last night I looked at my battery indicator; 17 hours w 70% left! I had only checked my email notifications, etc, about 5 times throughout the day, but I had left BT & WiFi on.
    This is OCed 250 MHz low - 1 GHz high, using Chevy's ULV 1 GHz kernel.

    I like this option because it's a one-stop shop in ROM Manager... pick out everything all at once including kernel, theme, features, etc.... downloading now, so I don't know exactly how it will play out on my Droid, but I am hopeful!

    I am using Sapphire .6 that came out today and it is much faster and smoother than any other i had tried. Guess thats the benefit of being built from source. Im sure Cyanogen will be great once it comes out too.

    Im at BB first (or maybe second) Froyo release. I'll be honest, it's not the most stable thing in the world (I remember before Froyo, the 2.1 based BB I had was almost perfect), but for now it does what it has to do. I really need the pin lock function available in Froyo so I'm not even thinking about going back to 2.1. I haven't updated my BB because I have heard about there being some issues, and I simply don't have the time right now to flash a new ROM that could potentially make my phone have issues (only to have to worry about resetting my phone). Maybe this weekend I will look into updating my BB though. Pete's ROMs always seem to be very good so I was going to just wait and see what Pete comes up with, especially considering I don't have a lot of time to try all these ROMs out :) And I believe the word is "impatient", not "unpatient" :)
