    Where is the option flash a new ROM because GB broke my phone? Because I did that. Running Apex and it is so much better.

    That depends on who you ask. Steven for one loves his new Social Widgets and blur in general :D

    I think it's nice too, definitely much better than Froyo.

    I will try ApeX out once it's complete.

    I would like the camera fixed, the dark first shot at night kinda sux, but I've adapted to that.
    A root would be nice so I wouldn't have to flash back to FroYo every time I screw something up.
    A ROM with the blur left in and the bloat removed would be awesome!

    AMEN!

    i don't use any of the Blur Widgets (except for the toggle widgets)....all i want is ApeX that LOOKS like GingerBlur...basically ApeX with the unthemed framework would be my dream....

    that is where you come in bouchy :D

    I'll probably give ApeX a try once it's in final form. I often try beta/RC releases but work has been such lately that I need a stable, reliable phone - and obviously, even though the RC may be stable, its very nature as an RC means it hasn't been tested as thoroughly as the final.

    Kejar had indicated he was going to make a GummyJAR for Gingerbread, which I would run in a heartbeat. GummyJAR was by far the best ROM I ever ran on my X.

    While I find this new Blur to be pretty good, I really have no qualms about running a blurless ROM if I get even a 10% boost in usability/stability/speed/whatever.

    i believe that has changed...he no longer has an X...so it will probably be difficult for him...he has a ROM for the Charge out now called GummyCharged

    I was actually just looking over his twitter. He said he passed along his trade secrets to Fabolous, so here's hoping ApeX is as great as GummyJAR was!

    ApeX was excellent before, don't get me wrong, but GJ was just an absolute rock. I don't think I ever got a random reboot under GJ.

    GummyJar was awesome.. Then Drod started using the base in rubix, which I ran for months. I went 2 weeks without a reboot and finally had to restart cause I wanted a new theme. :)

    I've been using Apex for a week now and have not had one reboot. So far so good. Im glad fab took some pointers..

    I ran the stock GB for a little while and didn't like it. Blur seems to get in the way of everything, slowing down the phone. I highly recommend a rom.

    Other.

    Waiting for FAB to release an official-done version of ApeX 2.0 for GB then I'll be content besides flashing different themes. Need to get these stock apps off of here. Battery life isn't that great for how much I've been checking Twitter during E3 the last couple of days haha.

    Waiting for Fab to get Apex to a more bug free build. For now, trying out the newest version of Liberty. :eek:

    Currently torn really . I was rooted and rom'd prior to the update.

    I miss removing the bloat as there seems to be no root for .596. short of me sbf'ing back to .340, and then using the TBH files. which I might do. the bloat is really getting on my nerves but honestly not affecting use of the device.

    I love having netflix. I have waited too long to have netflix. so there is that.

    None of the leaks performed well on my X.It took over 10 minutes to fully boot and become useable the .596OTA did excellent,however I couldnt stand the poor battery life,and rediculous message that kept popping on my screen about unplugging to converve energy...seriously? Im not a kid anymore,my mom used to tell me,whats worse is it sets off the ringtone notification,so you think someone texted you.I had to go into settings and uncheck the box,but it still pops up on the screen.
