I currently have a MyTouch 1.2... actually came from a Motorola Cliq. I like the MyTouch much better than the Cliq and I'm still within my 14 days to return the phone. A few questions.. What would be better, a rooted G1 or a vanilla MyTouch 1.2 running 1.6? Better meaning faster.. not just faster going through screens, but running apps as well. I find that I use Google Maps a lot, and right now run some apps that seem to be a little laggy on my MyTouch, would I see an improvement on a rooted G1? MyTouch 1.2 is going to get android 2.1 soon, which is what I heard.. so in overall performance what would be faster, MyTouch running 2.1 or rooted G1 running the fastest and stables rom available for it? I do realize that as far as hardware specs go, the MyTouch 1.2 is a bit better with its 288mb RAM compared to G1's 192mb RAM (please correct me if I'm wrong). I COULD root the mytouch, but the lack of roms for it isn't worth the risk to me. And the 2.1 update coming up is making this decision harder.
