There are a couple of posts here about how to root the Transform and update it to Froyo (all of which are to Vampirefo's port I believe), but I don't see much discussion about the value of doing so. What are the advantages of the Froyo ROMs over a stock (2.1) phone or over a popular rooted (2.1) ROM? I'm within my 30-day return window and I'm wondering if the 2.2 Transform is faster or better than the 2.2 Optimus S or if I should just exchange it for the Optimus S. I'll root it and compare the two myself if I have to, but I was hoping someone could give me an indication of whether it's even in the ballpark of being worth (the risk and) my time-- especially compared to the Optimus. For example, if it's only a 10% real-world speed increase or enables free WiFi tethering, I wouldn't even waste my time because the Optimus S is at least that much faster and can already do free WiFi tethering. (It would be my 1st root so I'd prefer not to to spend the time getting up to speed, rooting it, and then restoring it so that I can return it if it's not worthwhile.) 1) Is there a significant speed increase in web-page download speeds or in other apps? How much? Has anybody quantified it? Does Angry Birds run silky smooth now? 2) Do any of the Froyo ROMs have a graphics driver (especially an OpenGL driver) that can take advantage of the built-in graphics hardware? (Apparently Samsung didn't include such a driver in the stock 2.1 ROM which may explain why Market version of Angry Birds is essentially unplayable on the 800MHz Transform but runs smoothly on the 600MHz Optimus S. It may also help explain why the Optimus S can download web pages faster. Not sure.) 3) Does video conferencing now work smoothly? 4) Are there any other benefits or features that make rooting the Transform to Froyo worthwhile? 5) Are there any cons to the new ROMS, like bugs, crashes, or features that stop working? Sorry. I know that I'm asking some questions that might be a bit time consuming to answer. Thanks in advance for any help!
