After mulling it over I rooted last Friday. After starting with KaosFroyo 3.2 and migrated over to Cyanogen Tazz 2.0. My phone is so much better now, espcially in terms of general responsiveness and, especially, phone responsiveness. The Detailed Leak Root Tutorial was very helpful. One editorial suggestion. When you guys use the term wipe, you should say that you are referring to the phones RAM and not the SD card. The thing that took the longest was backing up my SD card. I used ASTRO to back up my apps, Backup Pro to backup my data, and ADW to back up its settings. This really helped me to have my phone up and running the way on want it very quickly. I have a few questions about apps that are no longer available. I like the stock picture viewer in 2.1. With the Eris, I find the stock viewer faster than Gallery but I don't see it in the market and it was not in the Gapps zip file. Also voice recorder is gone, although I can use Note Everything for this purpose. My more general question though is what you guys think about 2.1 ROMs vs. 2.2 ROMS in terms of responsiveness, phone behavior, available apps, and any other criteria you think are important? When responding, please note that I don't have any particular need for the Sense widgets (I already ditched them when I switched to ADW). One more specific question. With the official ROM, I could disable always on mobile network, which I did to extend battery life. This option does not seem available with Cyan Tazz 2.0. With the power options, I can switch to 2G but not shutoff the network when the phone is sleeping. Are there any 2.2 ROMs that preserve this feature? Is there a workaround? As always, thanks in advance for your feedback and input.
