    I LOVE the watermark keyboard!!!! Which is why I've stuck with it even when you can't see the number when you bring up the keypad instead of swapping out one of the themed GB kb. They are working on this so hopefully that will be corrected soon, besides who can memorize the positions of the 10 numbers? I've run Fission and I was running Apex (good ROM & support) before trying DS on a whim....must be like certain illegal drugs, one hit and your hooked!!!

    DarkSlide is too ugly to use.

    I love the DS rom. I am currently running the nonblurred version and have had no issues at all. I have wanted to try out liberty but there always seems to be an issue with it(based on forums posts). So I have stayed with DS. Very hapy and patiently waiting for update to the rom

    You don't need to have 4.1 to get 4.2 ..you can just go straight to 4.2 .....mounting the system allows files to get pushed to install on your system ...when you are in clockworkmod system is not mounted ...some rom installations do this for you but with ds you must manually do it ....just follow the directions and when you go to mount system once its mounted properly it will change from mount system to unmount system ....once you see it says unmount system that means your system is mounted and you can proceed with your installation

    Well, I have tried most of the popular roms...Liberty, Apex and the like and they are great roms, but turned out to be battery eaters for me. I am back on DarkSlide 4.2 and love it. I have customized it some, but love to plug my phone in at night and still have some battery left, didn't get that with the other roms.

    Ok well I tried Dark Slide 4.2 and I can say it was ok but there was to much going on with the blur version I have to ask do people who use that rom the blur version find that

    ADW LAUNCHER EX
    and
    ADW LAUNCHER PRO


    installed on the blur version seems like overkill

    I nevered tried the blurred version of DS. Im running the blurless version of DS and Love ever bit of it. After being blurless for a bit now I can see that the current version of Moto Blur slows the phone down waaay to much. I havent tried using LP(P) since I have fully customize ADWex to my liking currently. But my phone runs fast and super smooth. I havent had a issue so its hard to justify trying other any ohter ROM's though I am very curious about Liberty as it seems to be very popular.
