    Read in the past where things weren't working such as camera, bluetooth, GPS, LED notifications, etc. And then I stopped paying attention for about a month :) But now, my phone is bugging me every 30 minutes that an update is available, so I either have to move to stock 2.2 or something else, so would much rather have vanilla.

    So was just wondering if there are any vanilla Froyo builds with everything working? I see that two of them are in RC status, but are they stable enough to use without major headaches?

    I want to know as well. I just tried that ruby 1.1.0, its what i'm running right now, and it is stable, but the camera only goes to 3mp. I am looking into the new vanilla of skyraider rc3, I will let ya know what I find out!

    Virtuous is completely stable. It's basically just the 2.2 OTA, decrapified.

    Cool thanks, I'll try this one. Sounds like the vanilla ones are almost there, but not quite 'production ready'.

    I'm researching the same...have been for the last week. I haven't tried a "vanilla" version yet, but I'm looking forward to it! Virtuous2.5 is excellent I have not found a bug yet and everything works. I want to try vanilla I might just go for it this wknd and give it a whirl!

    Skyraider vanilla is rock solid, but not a true vanilla, just has as much crap removed as possible. That being said its my Rom of choice right now.

    The 3.0 RC2 version or are you using 2.5.2? That's the one that seems to me the most solid after all the reading over at xda I've been doing. So no issues at all for you yet? Can I ask you are you using the stock kernel or something else? Thx :)

    I'm using SR 3.0 RC2 vanilla, 2.15 radio. .92 hboot, KK #1 BFS. Setcpu at 1113.. Rock solid so far. You must bump the battery.

    I'm loving SkyRaider Vanilla 3.0. Awesome ROM. Looking forward to checking out Ruby once they get the camera, wifi, and Bluetooth fixed which sounds like it will be soon.

    sorry havent been on, still on stock kernel, had an issue flashing a new one and remembered that after flashing the #1 hydra at the time I had some probs with 2.5.2 so since quadrant scores aren't my main use of the phone just stock for now ;) I had to do the occasional airplane mode trick even on 2.5.2 and some very minor bugs then went to wave rom and when sr3 dropped I nandroided back to my 2.5.2 and installed over the top saving me lots of time, but I mention here because its been extremely solid even though I didnt wipe, I figured it would be a hot mess. No complaints at all. I did have one random reboot, but to be honest it may have been my reboot app (oops confirmed, had it on a main screen just touched it and phone rebooted ;)) so yes no bugs so far using stock kernel loaded on top of (no wipes) a 2.5.2 load.

    It also looks like SR 3.0 Vanilla will have a final version some time this week. It really looks good at this point, no need to keep flashing for me. Finally.

    K, that's what I thought. Not sure how that recommendation ended up here when the OP was asking about vanilla ROMs...

    I guess it was recommended because none of the vanilla roms are completely stable yet (AFAIK). So if there's no completely stable vanilla roms at this time, I'd rather stay as close to stock as possible, minus the bloatware.

    I tried Ruby, but couldn't get wireless tether to work (even with the 'android.tether' folder trick). It's too bad, because I liked vanilla a helluva lot better than Sense. I'll prolly stop back by in a few weeks and check on the state of things, as it sounds like they've almost got all the kinks worked out :)

    Staying off-topic: Virtuous is pretty good but it does still have a few quirks, although none of them have really been a deal-breaking experience for me. YouTube via browser doesn't work, you must use the YouTube app. That's about all I can think of. I've had a few other issues but I can't be sure that virtuous is at fault. I used Frankenrom b6 prior to this and it was just as solid. I too am looking to try out a good stripped down vanilla rom, all I've used is sense roms so far.

    SkyRaider 3.0 vanilla has been really stable for me.
