    Howdy all,

    I rooted my phone back before 2.2 came out. I've played with CWM, made Nandroid and Titanium backups, removed bloat and installed most of the root only apps. What I haven't done yet is flash a ROM. This is mainly because it seems that while there are a crap ton of ROMs being developed out there all of them seem to either not be fully stable or are missing some sort of key feature (camera, videocam, bluetooth, LED, internal storage, etc).

    Are there any ROMs that you folks are currently using that's stable and has all the features of the phone working? If not, what's the closest one that you've found?

    Virtuous and SkyRaider are the most complete and polished sense ROMs out for the Inc imo.

    FrankenRom from adrenylyne is very stable and fully functioning. I have also used Virtuous, his are stable as well.

    Both of these are good. I use Frankenrom as my daily driver though.

    Yeah, as "most stable" I'd say Virtuous, FrankenROM, SkyRaider.

    Uncommon Sense is pretty good too. I'm not sure what the OP's definition of "fully featured" is though.

    Fully featured in terms of everything is working correctly (internal storage, the LED, camera, camecorder, etc).

    Good suggestions here so far. Thanks for the feedback!

    None of them that I'm aware of at this time though I've had it installed on Virtuous.

    Subscribed! I've been wondering the same thing. I installed ruby but the camera function made me go back. I'm waiting on one of the stock ones...

    Over the past week, I've tried CM6, Ruby, Virtuous, SkyRaider Sense, and the MIUI thing. Cm6 and Ruby were nice, but I found myself missing Sense. SkyRaider Sense was nice, but was a bit slower for me than Virtuous. Virtuous is what I have been using most and it is "fully functional" from what I can see and it's the best performing Sense ROM I've tried.

    MIUI was neat, but I just didn't like the feel and operation of it, although it too seemed pretty Snappy.

    Uncommon Sense has DSP Manager, I really like the ROM. Haven't tried camera and 720p but i'm sure they work fine.

    Virtuous is my favorite and is what I have been using.

    Virtuous now has the option in ROM Manager to download DSP Manager and have it automatically instal for you.

    I'm still fairly new to all the ROMs, I'm currently using Cyanogen 6.0.2 and I like it a lot. Seems pretty stable to me. CM6 is the first and only ROM I've used so far. Check out this site Welcome - The Incredible List.
