    ***** ROM Reviews *****

    Lithium Mod ROM Review

    Initial Setup and Boot
    As with any ROM, it's important to read the info and changelogs, specifically in this case because - unlike most ROM's - this one wipes your data partition. If you like installing new ROM's without a wipe, be prepared, you will lose your data, so make sure to do a Titanium backup first.

    The boot was generally quick for a new ROM. I don't put much stock in the initial boot time as a measurement factor since it only happens once, but for its part Lithium seemed faster than most on my phone. Most of my apps were restored through the Market. There are a few usual suspects that never restore regardless of the ROM, so I don't hold this against it. Titanium took care of those.

    Appearance and Performance
    I chose the Alternate Dark theme and I have to say, it's one of the nicest looking themes I've ever used on my Droid. I'm really going to miss it when I flash another ROM. It has a very classy black look with chrome accents, and themed all of the applications I would expect it to. The lock screen is absolutely awesome looking.

    Performance with the stock kernel is so-so. I used it long enough to determine that it was stable enough for everyday use. I did not encounter anything unusual with the stock kernel, but I quickly replaced it with a jdflg kernel after a bit of use.

    I would give the overall performance of this ROM a 4/5. It's not the fastest I've ever used, but it is definitely speedy, and a bit ahead of the pack. Transitions are very fluid and in normal use it's (mostly) hiccup free. Quadrant scores - for those who care - are what I would expect. I routinely scored in the 1400's - just a little bit lower than what I had pulled with Succulent Desire 7.0 and the same kernel.

    Features and Bugs
    Like other source-built ROM's, Lithium offers several nice usability features. These are things that I normally don't care for myself, but can be very handy. The power button includes the always useful "Reboot" and "Reboot into Recovery" options, which worked flawlessly for me.

    Included is an app that I am not familiar with, but found to be an extremely nice tool. "Absolute System" has options for app management, a built in file browser, live wallpaper and font changer, app2sd settings, and plenty more. The inclusion of it in the ROM by default exposed me to it for the first time and I really like it.

    Battery life is generally good. I haven't noticed drastically different battery life with many of the ROM's I've used lately. With the same SetCPU profiles and speeds they all generally perform pretty closely. I found that I had the same battery life I expect based on my usage, which is sufficient for using the phone through a long day without the need to charge.

    I have yet to experience any real bugs with this release. Lithium scores extremely high in both features and bugs in my book.

    Conclusion
    Setup 3/5 - The required data wipe could be an annoyance.

    Appearance 5/5 - Alternate Dark is one of the best themes I've ever seen.

    Performance 4/5 - Above average, but not leader of the pack.

    Features and Bugs 5/5 - Long list of useful features and no bugs in my testing.

    Overall (Not an average) 5/5 - I have to give this one a perfect score. The only real annoyance was the data wipe - which didn't personally bother me since I would have done it regardless, and did. Bugs are non-existent, features are plentiful, performance is above average, and the Alt Dark theme (which I highly recommend) is absolutely gorgeous.
    I would love to keep this one around for a while.. but you know, I'm flash happy, so even the best won't do, and of course I need to keep the reviews going.

    Enjoy!

    Flashed this after wiping.. and it was a no-go for me. For starters, 3G disappeared.. and while I was able to sign into my gmail account, I couldn't use the *228 option to activate my phone..

    This thing looks awesome, so I'm a bit bummed that I can't give it a spin.. restoring back to SS 4.5 as we speak..

    So far, this ROM is nice. Pretty snappy even with the stock kernel. I can't decide which theme to use (and now I have to add Watermark'd to my list of potential themes), so I'm trying out a few. I do have one issue. Right now I have the Alternate Dark theme on. I love the look. Very clean and simple. But Swype won't work properly. I restored all my apps and data using Titanium Backup as I've always done. Swype is there. When I go to use the virtual keyboard it's there as an option and the Swype keyboard comes up. But when I actually "swype" nothing happens. I see the little tracer line across the keyboard, but no words pop up. But it will allow me to type on it like the stock keyboard.

    Not having Swype will be a dealbreaker for me. I'm going to try another theme to see if the problem persists.

    I just tried uninstalling/reinstalling Swype and I got the same message. I really need Swype to work, so for now I'm back to version 5.0.9.

    I am using the Watermark'd theme, and my swype does work. I deleted all instances of swype in data/app and sdcard/downloads (where the swypeinstaller downloads to), then followed the directions in the Swype email.

    Note: I did wipe before flashing.

    Using Droid X theme. Pretty awesome, was having lots of troubles with different roms. This one is snappy, good looking. Willing to trade lack of features for stability and speed.

    Been running since it released yesterday. SMOOTH! Running the 928 theme with only the stock 800mhz kernel and it is a snappier than most of the roms I usually run with Chevy's ULV 1.1. No bugs or FCs yet. So far, looks like one of the best to date. Nice work Jrummy!

    Oh, almost forgot...that Absolute System app included is a gem!

    You have to check out Black N Bold by thebowers. Although the OP says it's coming soon, the ROM is available if you click on the screen shot link (it will take you to the forum where he's posted the info and a download link is there). It's a fantastic looking ROM. I'm still having issues with Swype, but I might be willing to go without it just to keep this theme on my phone.

    Flashed the Gala theme, I absolutely love this theme and have been looking forward to it. I've had a few reboots that I'm quite sad about, I of course did all the wiping, etc, etc. I'll see if it continues anymore today or tomorrow and try a reinstall. Anyone else seeing this the Gala Theme?

    I've had Swype problems before with other roms, have you tried re-installing using their installer file? That has worked for me....

    Excellent Rom JRummy. I stuck with Kangerade for awhile but I flashed this today and Im loving it. Coming from Kangerade 5.0.9 I didn't wipe and the phone runs flawlessly.

    The Absolute System app is incredible. Great work
