    Just got the X from the moto droid1. I always used the ultimate droid series of roms as they were stable and easy to use. I already rooted to gain wifi tether and underclocking abilities but it seems like the devs of roms here are different than the droid1's...so

    Whats a good 2.3 rom thats stable (so I can play 2.3 only games), themes dont really matter as I use launcher pro anyway.

    I saw the list of roms...just dont know which one's are worth a darn.

    Thanks,

    If you like brevity and speed, I'd recommend Liberty 1.5 or Fission. They obliterate blur and are fast.

    Went to liberty 1.5 thanks...seems good so far..other than the weather channel is now freaking out on me with force closes...
    Still shows as a 2.2.1 rom, need 2.3 to play some of the newer games....guessing gingerbread is not completely out for the x yet like my old droid?

    Are any of these a 2.3x (gingerbread) rom? I love the rom but I need the rom to say 2.3 to be able to download a couple games that supposedly arent compat with 2.2x

    No. They are gingerbread themed, but are still froyo. I believe there's a way to change your phone to say it's GB through the build.prop file.

    I tried Apex but I like Liberty much better. I'm not one to tinker with 1000 themes and widgets and stuff.

    +2 :D I've tried quite a few ROMS, but I always end up coming back to this one.

    I'm going to have to recommend apex 1.4.1. Unless you want a blurless rom.
