    Well, I've had my Indulge now for about 6 months. I rooted the phone as soon as I got it, but I wanted to stay with the Stock ROM since I was to lazy to flash another ROM such as Basix and transfer over all my apps/work on to it and then just start from the beginning again.

    Well I finally got bored of my phone, and it got too boring for me after that new feel to it went away and I felt like buying a new phone, so when I had woke up today in the morning I decided to flash Basix and the Electric Sheep kernel to see if that would make me feel different about the phone, and Im happy I did it because it was completely worth it. I feel like my phone is new again, and it's like 10 times much better now. So after using Basix for one whole day now, I can say its a great ROM and k0nane did a great job with it.

    Those that are still on Stock, should switch to Basix with the Electric Sheep kernel, its completely worth it.

    Haha I know man, wish I would've done it sooner. And I was just getting ready to sell this phone because it got so boring, but all it needed was a nice revamp.. its feel like a new phone again to me.

    My wife just got me this phone and I was very eager to flash Basix:D and so far i really like it. I just wish i didnt have to flash my updated radio drivers but that could just be some other issue.Just really excited to have something new to play with.

    You should flash the Electric Sheep kernel for even better performance if you haven't done so :)

    Being a complete newbie in all of this, what order would I have to flash each of these?

    I have noticed that on every reboot I loose my homepage icons and widgets. Is there a way to keep this from happening?
