    This rom is incredibly stable and does every thing I ask of it. Yet most the post around here are for Liberty or Apex. What gives?

    DarkSlide v4.2 is my go to ROM. While I do check out all the newest releases to see If I will like them I always go back to DS. There are some ROM's that are slightly faster than DS but I still haven't found a ROM that has the speed AND stability of DS. In short I LOVE DS!

    I was on darkslide before switching to apex 1.4. I really liked it and seemed even more stable than apex. I may go back, I'm not sure yet. Apex does seem a little snappier.

    I liked it but it was laggy on my phone. I am guessing my phone could use an SBF honestly. Anyway on Liberty right now.

    DS, FTW...
    Tried Ds 4.1, liked it a lot, decided to try another (apex) was ok for a minute, then became unstable (YMMV) went back to ds 4.1 waaaaay better for me.
    Now on 4.2 and my radio is much cleaner, better voice quality, the transitions are smoother and all around, IMHO, a more refined ROM

    I installed DarkSlide 4.2 sometime after originally rooting my X and really liked the ROM. The ONLY problem I had with it is, since it is already heavily themed there are really no themes available for it, if someone wanted to change to something else. Other than that, it is a great ROM!

    Could you guys post some pictures of it? I was thinking about trying it out but I'm not gonna bother if the theme is ugly.

    May flash this sometime.
    Thinking about venturing in to making a rom, figure that would easily take months to learn.

    I have thought about this in the past, and still kind of do. I just think about all the questions and support I'd have to give, and then those feelings of learning/making a ROM go away......hahaha :p;):D

    I tried darkslide in both normal and blur,they both ran very slow on my device,and i found the animations not only annoying,but they slowed down the transitions,I wiped both backups with days.The stock moto rom was much faster than Darkslide on my phone.I find rubix roms run best on my device,liberty is unstable after a few days,and gets laggy,only way to keep it is to keep installing a fresh version off the sd card. I wish i had more choices,as i love the look of Darkslide,I tried dl form different sources,wipe cache,data,format,install,didnt matter,it was just Sloooowowww....I wish i knew what was wrong...
