    This rom is great, just enough tweaking to make it fast and smooth without
    ripping it up so many things dont work.
    I like to flash diff roms to see whats,what but now with this rom I have quit using others.
    Not that some others are not good but
    RMK has done a good job here and will keep following his roms

    I tried a few of the others and were never happy with one thing or another about them but I really like this ROM. I would highly recommend this ROM if you are like me and want a stable tweaked Sense ROM.

    This ROM really is excellent. Plan on upgrading to 2.6 (there is an upgrade or full install process with this latest version if you have 2.5) as soon as I get a chance. I've been using it for a while now and have really grown to like it. There isn't a bunch of extra themed stuff making it strange to use and there isn't a whole lot of bloat or junk just floating around in it.

    RMK really trimmed the fat and left all the fixin's in this one.

    Outstanding ROM that deserves more attention and respect than I've seen it garner so far.

    I love this rom. Unfortunately I have horrible battery life right now, but I doubt it's rom related.

    Great rom. Needs more love from the community. I personally like Sense. I tried a couple different vanilla roms but sense just makes some things so much easier. The built in toggle widgets for gps, bt, wifi, etc are excellent.

    This rom is perfect for people who are skilled enough to root and flash roms but are not comfortable with all the extra customization that can take place. All the other roms made me feel uneasy about possibly bricking my phone but this rom I sometimes forget that I am running a custom. Trims just enough excess off to make it run smoother without completely changing my phone.

    I am backing up and going to install this.
    Any word on charging time? That is really my only complaint with Skyraider

    Installed through Rom Manager and did a full wipe coming from SkyRaider 2.5.2

    It has been on the Skyraider bootscreen annimation for the past 15 minutes plus.

    Should I do a battery pull?


    edit: 25 minutes - pulling battery

    edit 2: didn't help - still getting stuck on SkyRaider boot - any suggestions?

    edit 3: fyi, SkyRaider is the only rom I have ever flashed - I am new to this stuff.

    I've never had a problem flashing a ROM but if I were in your situation I'd boot into Hboot, then bring up recovery and do a nandroid restore and then go from there.

    Have you tried booting into recovery and wiping everything (Data/Cache, Dalvic) placing update on sdcard and install zip from sdcard?

    I did a nandroid and am back up and running. Really want to try this. Re-downloading the rom.
