    im on 4.5 and have made a nandroid backup of what i have right now. if i go to the droidmod site and download the updater. can i go to that ROM and try it out and just go back and forth if i wanted to? what do i have to do to make this work correctly?

    You probably know this, but if you like the droidmod you can use a smoked glass them and apply it over the droidmod using metamorph.

    Ive seen people talkin about it...havent messed with it at all. does droidmod use the 2.1 launcher or 2.0.1. i like that aspect of smoked glass as well as the stability of it. i had sholes at first but took it off.

    I think 2.0.1 launcher becuase it adds 2 screens but not the new 3d app drawer and such, and isnt unstable like the 2.1 launcher is as people say.

    As for metamorph, i just recently started using it and its awesome! i can use droidmod and pretty much change any part of the theme with just a metamorph file.

    There are other threads on switching between droidmod and other ROMS. i have no insight on tht as i have never used a rom other than droidmod. From what i have read though, yes you can switch back relatively easy with nandroid recovery, its just not as simple as loading a (.tgz?). Im pretty sure thats right but someone more knowledgable on tht subject should chime in or point you in the right direction.

    i have a nandroid backup set from earlier today with the smoked glass. i love smoked glass. i just like to experiment. so i wanna try droidmod but i dont wanna loose what i have set up already. i havent had any stability issues with the 3D launcher on there either. phones been great! i guess it just loves me:)

    Well honestly why would you want to change? Just wondering because what does droidmod have that adamz doesnt? I understand the curiosity to try other roms haha but if its running well and nothing to add really with droidmod, not much point.

    eh just for something to do i guess. im new to rooting my phone and it has intrigued me to try different ROMS i guess. plus i think droidmod has live wallpapers right? smoked glass doesnt.

    True about the live wallpapers thing, and i do like them alot. can u just apply the live wallpaper .zip though to your ROM? Thats what i did on the old droid mod before it was incorporated on the newest ROM.

    I had the sholes rom and then changed to the new droidmod one and it killed by battery really fast even without live wall papers. So i switched back to the old sholes with smoked glass through the nandroid backup in recovery so yes you can just switch back if you dont want it
