    Ive used Cm6 and had some homescreen lag issues so i tried liquid frozen yogurt 1.6 and i love it. i ran the slayher kernel and it seemed to be doing just fine. it is snappy and battery life is better than CM6. I also tried simply stunning v4.8. I really like SS a lottt but with the chevy kernel my battery life was absolutly terrible. I don't know why that was so i switched back to Liquid froyo 1.6 and my battery life is a lot better now.

    Does anyone know about UD extreme 8? ive heard good things but i just wanted to know a little bit more about it. So basically my question is what do you guys think the best ROM and kernels are for performance and battery.

    Thank you

    What do you want to know about it?

    Kernels are very Droid-specific. What works great on my phone may throw yours into a bootloop and not work. It's really hit-or-miss as far as kernels go. But I LOVE UD8.

    As far as this issue goes, opinions are like assholes. Everybody's got one. Most of us are happy to recommend something to try, but hesitant to declare anything as "THE BEST" without making it clear that it's our subjective opinion.

    That said:
    My two favorite ROMs are UD8 and the new Miui ROM out of China (that's what I'm using now).

    My CURRENT favorite kernel is ChevyNo1's ULV 1.2 GHz , but it depends on which ROM I'm using.

    Ok thank you. Also I see ur running ulv, wat r the benifits of that? I always see the option of ulv lv and medium v. I have mine currently running 1ghz with low voltage and it runs great. What are the differences for voltages?

    Quick answer: Low voltage and ULV kernels allow for longer battery life by sending less juice from the battery to the CPU. I didn't used to be able to use some of the older ULV kernels but the newer ones work great for me. Just try to have a handful of kernels installed on your SD card so if you run into a boot loop you can quickly flash a different kernel in recovery.

    I was using Sapphire 1.1 and liked it. Wanted to try UD 8.0 and I love it, especially the easy customization it offers.

    Right now I am in between UD8 with the Watermarked theme and Charity. They are both smooth and fast. Charity seems a bit smoother and faster but by how much is pretty subjective. UD8 with the watermaked theme is just plain nice to look at and use. I have tried lots of kernels and keep coming back to the Slayher 1.6 kernals and the 1000lv. I like where the slots are and it just seems faster and smoother than anything else I have tried. UD8 with the stock kernel works very well also. I have tried the ulv kernels on a number of roms and I just can't get them to work on a consistant basis but every phone is different. There are plenty of options out there, you just have to try a few and see what you like and what works best on your phone.
    I have also had good luck with the plain FRG22 Deodexed.
