So.....what is the best RoM.
Could you list your favorite roms and what their features are?
I second this...or at least point to the best section of a thread
ROMs are very preferential. Asking which is best is like asking which scented candle smells the best... you're going to get a different answer from most everyone.
White Window and Evil Eris are both very popular. I'm running PlainJain currently. When I first rooted, I rooted with PlainJain. I quickly tried several other ROMs, but ended up coming back to PlainJain. EVERYTHING works on this ROM and I like the stock feel.
Of course, these are all my opinions, but:
- if you are looking for a full Sense based ROM, similar to stock with better performance and even some of the least popular built-in apps removed, the latest Plain Jane or XTRSense 3.1 seem best. Ivan's Official 1.0 is also good but not updated with the latest updates provided in July.
- If you are looking for a ROM that has great performance, uses the stock HTC bits but not the Sense launcher, XTR 3.0.3 is great, and I've also tried and liked Tainted Tenzo.
- If you are looking for something without Sense, with stock Android, Eris LightningBolt 2.8 or Droid Does 1.1 are both very good.
I've tried just about everything, including Aloysius, Evil Eris, the Froyo ones (kaos and CELB Froyo, which are both still incomplete), but the four listed above are the ones I like best.
And, you can find 'em all here: Droid Eris Android Development - xda-developers
my favorite non sense rom is white widow
my favorite sense rom is aloysius.
evil Eris 3. 0 is the awesome if u like a sense feel to your Rom. rooted a week ago and tried a couple others, but for me this is everything and more!
While EE3.0 isnt the best looking ROM it seems to be the best performing and has the best battery life for me.
White Widow 4.6 > all
My vote is for CyanogenTazz V6! Great Froyo ROM. V6 just released and is working great!
mine is evil eris 4.0, only bug is no mms, but i dont use it that much anyway, i just post to Facebook if i have to
supposedly theres a gps bug but my navigation works fine
live wallpapers included and runs very fast and smooth
i doubt ill be switching until another EE comes out
I'm running Cyanogen Tazz 6 right now..... it seems to run good.
I'm loving the layout and the blue theme of Sense-able 3.1. Battery life seems good too. The clock widget is awesome!
for whatever reason when i tried that all downloads failed from the market, and i did all the steps right, i really liked the theme tho, but i had to go back to ee4 bc of that
you downloaded the Google app pack right?
yeah i flashed right after i flashed the rom, i probally did something else wrong tho
You need to partition your SD card!
This is my only gripe also. I'm interested to find a ROM with working MMS right out of the box.
Froyo's works with MMS.
But I don't have the latest version, I think...
+1 Sense-able was the first ROM after rooting. No change to battery life. I'll eventually try others but there's definitely no rush.
Snappy fast and smooth without OC the cpu..
