    I have been using this for awhile now and though quite happy, overclocked to 850...dont notice a difference when i push it for more....., i wouldnt mind trying something new that isnt buggy and with added features...anybody out there moved on from this rom without looking back???
    oh the only bad feature is Everything loads on boot and until i kill the appz with atk it lags a little...no other complaints though so whats the benefit of another upgrade???

    is a smokey place.
    Why not just stay with Pete.. go to his 2.1 ROM.


    [ROM] Bugless Beast V0.7 (ESE53 Beta) New Patchers Available! 3/10/10


    You'll have to do a full wipe and Nandroid restore... but when you all done setting it up... and getting the optional Smoked Glass Theme installed, (now via easy install via update.zip), you'll be on the latest and greatest.

    Check out the link and read up... I've pushed everything to my phone... Chevy's SS, Ulitmate Droid's 2.1 ESE53, and Pete's v7.... using a multitude of different kernels ... with and without JIT... and so far I'm finding Pete's to be the most stable running Adamz new LV kernel... battery life seems decently improved... and it doesn't run as hot as she use to run.

    After that check out Chevy's: [ROM] Simply Stunning 2.0.2 Release - ESE53 2.1 - (3/9/2010)

    And Blackdroids as well: Ultimate Droid 6.0 (ESE53 Base) - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    Yes, you should definitely update to a ESE53 ROM. I was using 0.7.6 for a long time but finally updated when the ESE53 leaked a few days ago. It is so much faster and is well worth it.

    I was close. Many suns ago I was on BB 0.7.5 and made the easy move to 1.1 (still a 2.0.1 base ROM). Yesterday I took the plunge and made the not-so-easy move to BB 0.7 (a 2.1 base ROM).

    I will not look back. Even without the overclocking kernels, it is super-stable, lightning fast and beautiful. Plus, hey: it's 2.1! So I am sitting pretty for awhile until 2.2 or even 3.1 comes out.

    I put down my anchor and intend to stay right here. I highly recommend it.

    i got droidmod 1.0 on my phone and it runs good. What are the major benefits of switching to this rom?? Does it include the wireless tether feature?

    I suppose wifi tether is supported with a kernel addition, but I don't use it because (a) I'm not sure how to install and run it... and (b) PDAnet works fine for me. Having the Droid physically connected to the laptop charges the Droid as I use it as a modem.

    BB 1.1 does fine for me, the casual hacker :rolleyes:

    Battery lasts much longer and is the #1 improvement for me, that alone makes it worthwhile to run 2.1 ESE53. Also I see no change in stability in Pete's 2.1 ESE53, super solid.

    ESE53 is a very worthwhile update. Take the plunge, there's a few to choose from but Pete's is probably the most stable. I had one random reboot and it's been all good after that.

    BBeast was what made me want to root, and I've been a happy man ever since. But each ROM I've used afterward have gotten better and better. Just DLed BlackDroid's Ultimate Droid 7.0 and it's the fastest and most responsive ROM I've used yet (currently using AdamZ's 1200 kernel...1300 would boot loop).

    I don't think you can really go wrong w/ any ROM. These guys and there beta testers are working overtime to put out the best possible ROMs.

    The ONLY "bug" I have noticed with Bugless Beast 0.7 so far is that, when docking into the docking cradle, I was given a choice of either "clock" or "multimedia station". I thought the multimedia station was what I wanted, but it force closed every time I opened it. Select instead the "clock" and check it to use that as default. It's the exact same thing, as far as I can see, and it works brilliantly.
