    I'm not a member of the team. But I just saw the post put up on their main page, which explains some things. It's a good read:

    Except ESE53 wasn't paid for. The Motorola employee released it himself for free. I find it funny that they say all this because IIRC Sholes/DroidMOD guys are the ones who originally PAID for the 2.0.1 SBF about a month ago and released it.

    Well that kinda dose it for me. These guys just seem full of BS. I will be flashing to Pete's rom Sunday when I have some more time. Gotta love how the try to strike fear into people with the water mark comment.

    eh. no worries. there are many better roms out right now. they were on the top originally but i think they would really have to step up the game to compete with most of the current rom releases.

    I was never a big fan of their rom to begin with. the very first sholes rom I thought was way too buggy, then when pete made his bugless beauty I never looked back.

    At the end of the day, all rhetoric aside, whichever ROM is running best for me at the moment is the ROM I'll use. Something better comes along, adios! That's the beauty of having a flashable device, we can go where the wind blows... The drama behind the development is just an interesting diversion.

    Yeah, I for one have not been counting the days until DroidMod 2.0 is released :rolleyes: DroidMod 1.0 was on my phone for about 5 minutes so I will give 2.0 the same kind of opportunity.

    Is it just me or was Sholes being updated regularly? It does seem like forever since anything...anything at all was updated. Then again...I haven't checked. :D

    DM 1.0 has been working flawless for me the past 3 wks. I really don't see a reason to flash to a new rom every day just because everyone else is . Stick with a rom that is dependable and has fewer fcs as possible and stick with it, that's my opinion.

    It seems to me like they are all weird and dramatic, they may not be... at all. but i am not one to get tangled with something like that, i ignore it and their product

    I happen to like the way my phone is working right now and I like droidmod 1.0 so I am happy to wait for them to update. I also like that they seem to have a lot of integrity. I am not a total dummy about my phone but a lot of the root "stuff" does go right over my head so I feel better letting the experts deal with the finer points. Keep it simple for us less knowledgeable folks so we can all have a wonderful Android experience. :)

    Just because EVERYONE is running cynanogen does than mean you have to too ? It sound like the" IT" thing to do now. Do your own thing, homie. No disrespect. I am totally happy with my rom now. Running @ 1g constant, no fcs, and its DM 1.0. To each his ( or her) own. Peace.

    I was rooted before the whole Sholes Mod Rooter (in fact, I thought the push-to-root thing was bad) and was running a few of the SM roms after switching from the early BB's by Pete.

    I liked all the SM's, up to 2.0.5. 2.0.6 started to get buggy and DM 1.0 was ok, but on my phone it had a lot of memory leaks.

    It was a nice product, and I think the SMUpdater helped a lot of people root, but I can't be bothered with all the BS... from both parties.

    I actually nandroided back to my 2.0.5 build and stayed there until the ESE53 rom's came out. Then it was just a matter of seeing which one of those gave me the best battery life.

    Cool...do your own thing. No one is telling you to do what to do. We share opinions and experiences here. I personally don't like the DM rom and I can't stand the 12 yr. old girl drama that has been DM for the last couple of months. I don't think they should be airing their team's personal squabbles in forums while slandering each other. That doesn't scream integrity to me and it turns me off even more to their ROMs.

    They bring all the drama on themselves. There is no need to post a big rant like they did and down talk all the other dev's. I ain't buying the holier then thou act they try to portray.

    Oh, hey, on one hand, I could have a kickass ROM with all the latest leaks that haven't even been released to stock users that's also been tweaked. But it's WRONG!

    I mean, why would I go with the ROM that's wrong when I could have an outdated, ancient, buggy, slow 2.0.1 that's barely better than stock? I mean, come on, it has no piracy!

    Oh, wait...

    These guys are funny. At least they gave me an interesting read while bored at work. I never used Sholes or Droid mods, because I have been happy with other releases. Sitting on BB ESE53 (0.6) atm. I won't likely play with a new rom until zuesdroid sense rom (beta) comes out. And I will probably just play around with it a bit and put .6 back on until Zuesdroid releases the Sense rom based on the Incredible dump (rather than the Desire dump)...

    Ex-DM user. Their Devs are arrogant and elitist (with a few notable exceptions). They constantly condescend and feel as though their product is a gift from teh gods. Newsflash: It's outdated, there's no reason why anyone should still be using it. Even their arch nemesis Pete, has a far superior ROM currently - and he's not an asshole

    I love how they wont use the ese53 file but tons of stuff in dm1.0 is from either the nexus or the milestone which is also illegal. Anyone who believes their integrity crap is pretty gullible.

    For those who dm runs great for good for you. Everyone should use the rom that works best for them but it doesnt mean you have to buy this kind of BS

    Ive been using sholes Mod for the longest. I never had an interest in Rooting till Sholes came out and I love it. Im still on 2.06 and have never moved because Ive had no issues with iy. I didnt upgrade to DM 1.0 because I heard it was very buggy so I'll stick with 2.06. If they ever come out with a 2.0 I may upgade or just wait for an Official 2.1 update.

    Hey, I would recommend trying out Cyanogen's ROM, A.K.A, Koush's...Download ROM manager in the market and it flashes his recovery image for you, then downloades his latest ROM, and does everything you'd ever need. Just like DroidMod except, 10x better. If not more lol. Just a recommendation bud :) If not, enjoy DroidMod, I'm just doing some advertising for Koush, his ROM is awesome and he has the same set up as DroidMod, except no Drama and it's great! (even though I don't need the set up...) but its always convienent! ;) Just was offering a suggestion! :D

    I see it as half "here's what/why we're doing/not doing," and half just telling people to settle the F down. I'm running 1.0 and have no issues. If any of those other ROM's had some "killer" feature then I'd try them out. But until that happens, a ROM these days is a ROM. Fast is fast, compared to stock, and no FC's is a joy.

    But as with anything else. It's all just one big pissing contest in my opinion.
