    So its out Ubuntudroid 6.0 EB28 Ubuntdroid 6.0 EB28
    Now I ask this here so I dont piss off any devs on SDX, though they probably watch other sites.
    Can I flash this over my platinum ROM with out problems?
    If I dont like it with Crudkernel can I safely flash Vamp's recovery and kernel? And If I do like it better with Vamps recovery and kernel how do I customize it myself?

    Thanks for any help

    Yeah you can. just make sure you wipe your phone. You can put whatever kernel you want on there as well, even recovery.

    Sorry for being a noob. i am looking to change from vanilla to this (vanilla still wont let me have my wifi).

    which steps of the root process do i need to redo? i was satisfied with vanilla, but the wifi thing has been making me sad. i really just want my phone to function.

    i have vampiros recovery btw.

    can anyone post their scores for ubunt? I've been running with just the ultimate kernal and my phone has been working great. Don't want to risk ruining everything if the scores/stability aren't too great

    I've been having memory usage issues and want to try something but need help. I want to flash back to stock, reroot the phone, flash a deodexed template and then UbuntDroid 6 again to see if that helps.

    Now should I flash back to 2.1 stock and OTA update or flash the stock 2.2 they have available on SDX? I plan on rerooting with Vampirefo's EXT recovery or would it be better to root with CWM for UbuntDroid 6? Lastly to flash a deodexed template, what template would I use first before I flash UbuntDroid 6?

    Stock 2.2 flash, Use Vampirefo's EXT recovery first, Just the deodexed template, no more.

    Since all I have ever done is flash ROMs before I'm assuming this is the template I should use EB28 Stock theme template (deodexed) ?And after the template then UbuntDroid, right?

    So like the noob idiot I am I decided to format before I flashed the full stock 2.2 at 11:30pm sunday night.. However I formatted EXT instead of rfs and my phone wouldnt work. Well to make things better things better my computer had crashed last week and I had to redownload everything i needed to restore my phone. So here it is 1:30am and I go to work in 6 hours and my phone is almost back to normal. Life is grand i tell you.

    Ok question time. I now have stock 2.2 deodexed with vamps 2.0.9 kernel and ext recovery. But I am still running rfs format. To get ext format should I use recovery backup, format ext and then restore data? And afterwards flash ubuntdroid?

    Yes, that would be the way to do it. Make sure all the data is fresh. So if you could, download everything anew once you format to EXT4.

    Just flash it the same way you flashed vanilla. Nothing else to it.

    ok, so dumb question, is UbuntDroid similar to a launcher such as ADW? I hadn't heard of it until I saw this thread so I thought I'd ask.

    It is a ROM. ROMs are much more than themes or kernels. They basically change your entire phone around. This is a complete ROM so it also includes a kernel and a theme.
