    I have looked through the forums and couldn't find. Sorry if this has been answered somewhere , but I am wondering if I root after the Gingerbread update, are there currently any good roms that could be installed. Thank you

    Im currently running this rom and it is the best one i have yet to put on my phone. Fast, stable, looks good and if u like touchwiz u cant put it back on. Phone is so much more snappier and quickier than stock GB.

    I would recomend this rom to anybody

    If u have any problems at all with the rom post in that forum over at xda and toad life is always checking in for bugs. He updates pretty often. Im still running build 16 and love it. The newest build is 18 with a few improvements.

    yeah i gotta join over there and ask about some sort of lockscreen option. With this ROM there is only one, the default one.

    Funny, I flashed this earlier today on my wife's phone and i have to admit it's exactly what I was looking for. After dealing with the 3 week countdown on Frozen for the last 6 months or so I can't express how happy I was to see that this rom left the data formatted RFS.

    CleanGB is clean, fast, and so far extremely stable. If it lasts more than 3 weeks between flash-to-crash I'll buy the guy a beer.

    Are any of the lockscreens safe to flash on ei22?

    This thing is so stable I hate to screw it up. My wife is almost ready to throw the epic in the trash...

    edit. Answered my own question. I found a great theme for her with everything in it I wanted that was made for ei22. It's actually really nice.

    I put this theme on my wife's phone:

    [ERA][THEME][EI22][10Lock] Strawberries & Cream v.11.12.13 - xda-developers

    I went ahead and installed ADW with the pink theme and the pink swype as suggested too. She absolutely loves it. Everything works perfectly but for some reason everytime she makes or receives a phone call it force closes the phone apk when she hangs up. It still works fine though so I'm not too worried about it. It has all of the cool lockscreens in it too.

    I should note I installed it over CleanGB.
