    BB and Jrummy seem to be the most popular but as you know, it's totally preference for you and the hardware on your phone! they're like snowflakes! everyone is different!

    yes it is!

    i've tried out BB O.4, Jrummy's 5.0.9, ChevyNo1's Simply Stunning and Cyanogenmod 6.0.0 RC-1.

    SS was the smoothest hands down for me but running p3's 1.2 kernal i'm having the best battery life with nexbeast over BB!

    it's just too much fun running all these new ROMS and that signed bootloader for the X which is used by motorola to stop people from rooting might be a dealbreaker for me!

    droid for life!

    Running BB 0.4 here too and everything works. Tried Jrummy's 5.0.9 and had issues with bluetooth and the music player. And I don't know what Pete did, but BB 0.4 has totally changed the battery usage. I mean I can go the whole day and still have 60% battery when I go to bed! Either the battery level gauge is horked in this rom or I am having AMAZING battery life with it!

    Sapphire 0.8.4 is working great for me, built from source, no fc's, great battery life and runs smooth. Try it for yourself. start [CVPCS Sapphire Wiki]

    I say kangerade all the way. I'm running key lime flavored kangerade with chevy's 1.1 low voltage kernel, every thing works and works fast... tried some others and I keep coming back to this.

    I'm partial to Cyanogen 6, myself, but the market can be a bit wonky, still.

    I've ran BB 0.4, JRummy's 5.0.9, Saphire, Chevy's SS, and I'm now on CM6 RC-1. IMO CM6 is the best I've run, I REALLY liked JRummy's Kangerade but wanted to go back to a stock 2.2 look. I like CM6 and it's still a WIP, so any issues being had will be resolved. For me personally I haven't encountered any, battery life is good, haven't tried pairing my bluetooth yet, don't use it much. Again, it's just my opinion, the best rom is really what works best for you. Enjoy and happy flashing! :D

    I am running BB V0.4 with Nexttheme and P3 1100 Kernal, blazing fast and no force closes. Only thing I cannot get to work for the life of me is Wifi tether which I have been trying to get working using Wifi tether for root
