    I thought I might share my experience with people on flashing a new rom for the first time.

    I followed this guide word for word and everything was a breeze.

    [GUIDE] Installing Darky's ROM on 2.2/2.2.1 (I9000/I9000M only) | Darky's ROM

    So far I must say the phone is working really good. I had OCLF lag fix before, but found that the phone still had lag all the time. Now it's extremely snappy. Tested as much as I could and everything is working perfectly. Battery drain is good too. I left the phone with 60% charge overnight with wifi on, and woke up 8 hours later and the battery was at 46%.

    The twlauncher is really good. Similar to LauncherPro which I normally use.
    The GPS works great and got a lock straight away so no issues there.

    I used Mybackup Root before I flashed the rom, and that recovered all my Apps and photos with no issues. It did take about half an hour to restore but I have tons of apps.

    So overall I'm really happy with this Rom.

    Don't know why I didn't do it earlier!

    I agree there are other Roms which definately worth a try. The best Rom I tested so far is Juwe's. My favorite Kernel is Damian's (Ultimate) which I use with the Ultimate Rom at the moment. I will try a mix between them next week...

    Its not any problem.
    Just use a wipe version. Do have a backup on your apps, before you change rom.
