    I would go with the cm7. I have only come encountered one bug, when you turn your screen off with power button it then try the power button to turn it back on its buggy to get back, What i do is just hold home button and it acts just like the power button to turn back on, After flashing to the cm7 rom go in settings then CyanogenMod settings then display, Uncheck screen off animation then your set to use home screen button to get screen back, It works for me,

    Dont forget to flash the mms fix after your first boot after flashing cm7

    cm7 comes with the most features but is still a bit buggy. we have some ironing out to do.
    gingerlike is more stable with less functions. I would say go with what suits you the most when given such info

    Yeah im sticking with cm7, even though I had a lot of bugs with it... but i wish that when i dial a number it shows the contact corresponding with that number, instead of going allll the way into the contacts and fishing it out lol

    I have found that having a live wallpaper fixes the screen issue it lights right up.

    the MMS from what i have learned is to be flashed after the first boot from flasing the cm7 rom, so flash the CM7 then boot then go through setup by pressing exit( keybord issues) then boot into recovery then flash the MMS Fix and reboot thats how it got working for me hope it helps.
