    They're all basically the same. Flash one and if you don't like it try another. If we were on Twitter I'd hit you with one of these #thesethreadsarepointless ;)

    I'm a CM7 fan and always wind up back on it

    Liquid 3.0 is supposed to drop tonight, at least the last I heard it was, if so it should be a good choice. I wasn't all that impressed with the latest BlackAOSP and I didn't try the other AOSP rom he just released based on OMG roms. You could check out CM7 it is the base of many AOSP roms and is stable. I did like BlackAOSP 2.1 but I think he took it down so someone would need to host it for you ;) I could but not until later tonight. Really most of them are stable and good roms the dev's tweaks to each really makes the difference.

    I'm glad you didn't take it the wrong way. I was hoping you took it as me joking around. In all seriousness you can't go wrong with CM7.

    Yea, that's ok. You can upgrade if you want, but it's not a necessity

    The 8/28 GAPPS has a separate zip to flash for Gtalk video. You can flash them back to back, just a heads up if you want working video chat.

    Oh, and back on topic, can't go wrong with CM7. /f Liquid finally posts 3.0 and it works with some other kernels, might be worth a shot too. Otherwise, CM7 IMO.

    up until yesterday i had been running liquid. i had been haveing spectacular battery life without changing kernels,or even UVing the one that comes with it :eek:

    i really dug the UI on shift ao5p,and it worked great on my phone,tho it dint so much for some.

    having said that,theyre both cm7 based and i usually wind up back on that as well.

    OMGB,OMFGB are built from source,not from cm7. they are OK,but im partial to cm7s settings and tweeks.

    as has been said- thats the great thing about rooting. you dont have to pick one and stick with it ;) try them all! :D just restore the backup of your favorite and keep rollin :D

    what you looking for? I'm much more of a noob than the guys posting above, but i have flashed the rooms the guys named above.

    In my experience this isn't a debate really. They're all very similar. I run launcher and a theme so they all look the same anyways. The main difference is battery life. For me it hasn't been close. cm7 with imoseyon 3.5.8 kernel and you're set. runs great, amazing battery life.

    But try them out. Flashing takes like 15 mins including time to restore and backup everything.

    Yellow, I'm just playing with my spare bolt. Trying to decide on what to flash. I have run CM7 on my DX, that was complicated at first but i have flashed that (those) devices well over 100 times. the bolt is new to me, not unlearnable though.
    In CM7, what was your biggest dissapointment? for the DX it IS the camera for most.

    OH, also, I assume (since I'm rooted), all i have to do is download CM7, reboot to recovery and flash (i did see a note that you didn't have to wipe, i don't believe that). Do you know if the restore in CM7 is as friendly as the DX. Meaning you could do ADVANCE restore and restore DATA only and get your device back pretty quick even from a GB Stock backup. (in most cases that is)..

    If you're not coming from a previous CM7 build you 100% have to do a full wipe. I'm not sure about the advanced restore as I always just make a nandroid, I would suggest doing the same just in case the advanced restore doesn't work.

    I just installed the Teambamf rom that was debloated. after i updated the radio, scecond flash, i then did an advanced restore (CWR) and restored the data from my Stock rooted.

    Took a while to boot (probably cause it's deodexed. and all my DATA / APPS came back to life. Sweet. and i didn't have to use TiBu
