    I am finding myself flashing my phone several times a day. Tweaking roms moving ring tones or other things that one rom may not have. I am wondering am I going to burn out my phone doing this???? LOL I just can't settle on the perfect combination. The most consistent ROM for me yet has been Evil Eris 3.0 but the GPS doesn't work. I loved White Widow but a day after install it started lagging badly. I want KaosFroyo but I have to have a working camera. And my favorite keyboard is the HTC_IME_mod!!!! And all the roms don't have this one. grrrrr

    I am just getting a little frustrated.

    I think, in my non-pofessional opinion, that you may have an addiction or new found syndrome.

    Might be able to get naming credit: Tingsteria/Romflashphilia.

    The rush of flashing is unlike any other, I know what you're going through man. There's help out there, people that will help you get your life back together. You will feel the urge to flash whenever possible but you have to fight the urge. JUST SAY NO

    I tried WW and many others. What I have found is there is always something small that is not working.... camera, or gps or something else. Currently I have restored my phone to stock installed the 12mb update and then re-rooted. I then went through and removed as many (stock/lame) apps as I dared. (did some experimenting)

    I think I like things better this way. I would now love to be able to somehow have an over-clockable kernel, and install a different lock screen etc...

    I've even been poaching some ring tones from the other rom's. ;-)

    That's what I love most about this rooted phone...... I CAN CUSTOMIZE!!! ;-)
