    It's called Ultimate Droid New Era. ESE81 base. Given the reputation, I couldn't help but notice that the only kernels being advised to use are Bekit's and when installing, it's being suggested that you wipe twice. However, there is apps2sd and several other CM watermarks (Pete and CM are credited) Make of it what you will. I wouldn't know what to compare, so I'll let you guys decide which way is up.

    Ultimate Droid -> Download Manager -> Ultimate Droid Roms -> Ultimate Droid "New Era" (FAST!!!!, MetaMorphable, Apps2sd, Fixed Launcher 2 (Landspace, and Fluid w/Live Wallpapers Enabled)


    EDIT: Meant to post this in the All Things Root (Droid) section, don't know why I didn't. Any of you special, cool mods want to fix m boo boo?

    BTW, I flashed and I had the same issues I first had w/ when installing BBeast. I flashed back to Fab's NexBeast. However, that has been a lil screwy for me today, for whatever reason.

    i just installed this to see what it was all about. it runs very fast at 600mhz and seems to be built off petes V1. cant be sure but it feels like it. its a pretty slimmed down rom its is actually a pretty nice rom. i am sure the die hard UD fans will like it.

    First time for me flashing UD. It's very much a mix of CyanogenMod and Pete's V1. It has the little extra's CyanogenMod has like 360, Apps2SD, the option to reboot after pressing the power button etc. in addition it has zipaligned system like Pete's V1 in addition to having most of the scripts from Pete's. It feels like a CyanogenMod base that has Pete's V1 build on top of it. It's actually a nice ROM.

    Ok that was something new to flash, back to CyanogenMod 5.0.6.2 for me.

    I agree ^^^.
    If you like the Jacker's Rom use it.
    I have a few Roms on hand including this.
    If you donate, allocate your donations accordingly.
    Some to Pete, some to Cyanogen/Koush, some to the Jacker etc...
    Everyone put some work in, just some more than others .
    You decide.:)

    To me a mix of ROMs is not a bad thing.. I might actually flash this one. It seems to have a lot of what I am looking for..if only it all works together. There is another ROM called "Dominator" with supposedly stable JIT that is intriguing me though. I might just have to learn how to mix ROMs myself to get what I want:p

    At least the UD team seems to be crediting their sources this time, at least a lot better, plus they say they will post everything on github for others to mix around. Maybe they are going to go legit..

    Ok, so I was thinking, the reason I went back to 5.0.6.2 after trying Pete's V1 and Fab's NexBeast are the little things that CyanogenMod has like 360, the option to reboot after pressing the power button, and my fav. the 3D launcher with 5 app's across. I have tried taking the launcher from 5.0.6.2 and using them on Pete's and Fab's, but no go:(.

    So I tried added the launcher to "New Era" by CyanogenMod and Pete....my bad I mean UD ;) and it worked. So is it bad of me to run this ROM for a few days, I hope not because it has all that I'm looking for right now.

    this rom runs about the same as petes v1 and cyanogen 5.6.2, go figure :) anyways if you like UD stuff this is a good rom. it seems he has started to give credit now as well. if you like UD you might try petes roms or cyanogen. fab also does a good job of mashing petes roms with goodies.

    This is posted on the UD site:

    **CAUTION**
    (This rom was only made to work with SPRecovery, If it is on rom manager (which works with clockwork recovery) it has been tampered with and will not be supported. UltimateDroid Forums is the ONLY place to get your ultimate droid fix)
