    OK...I realize that there was a poll done about two weeks ago on this from someone else. But I'm asking again since it's been a few weeks and the devs have done (hopefully) a lot to iron out the bugs (I saw some familiar faces having trouble with wifi).
    So, same question...is it worth it to update to froyo if I'm content with my current ROM (NexBeast...and the only reason I want to upgrade to froyo is so I can "update all" with the app updates)? Or are there still enough bugs to make it not worth it for a casual ROM flasher like myself?

    I'm pretty casual and I'm running Kangerade 1.1 and it has virtually no bugs for me. Maybe I'm just lucky, but I think the apps have gotten pretty stable and any bugs that do exist have fairly simple work arounds.

    I'm enjoying the many many little things that froyo brings to the table. its stable and worth it hands down. I have removed all backups that pertained to 2.1

    Same here! I can't imagine ever going back to 2.1. There are just too many wonderful little goodies in Froyo.

    I rooted for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Kangerade 1.0 and haven't found a need to upgrade to 1.1. The first thing I noticed was speed.....about 3.5 times faster than the stock Droid according to Quadrant and the Kang kernal I'm using is stock. Froyo worth it just for speed

    I wouldn't go back to 2.1 for anything. Yes, 2.2 is well worth it, and it is getting better with every new release that comes out!

    I won't EVER go back to 2.1. I just can't wait for the official release ... or more importantly, custom ROMs based off of the official release. :cool:

    For me the Maket features alone are worth it.

    The only thing that's going to be disappointing about upgrading to the Droid X is having to go back to 2.1 (at least until someone roots it or VZW/Motorola sends out the OTA).

    Cool...thanks for the replies. So I guess it's unanimous. I'll root froyo this weekend.
