    I am looking for a vanilla 2.2 ROM to use on my incredible. I have not been keeping up the the custom roms lately however so I am looking for some suggestions. I know that CyanogenMod used to be a good option but is it still considered one of the best or does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Thanks.

    I highly reccomend the adryn roms.. they are simple yet work very well... I have used his roms for about 2 years now( omnia, Dinc ) they always are very stable and reliable

    If I understand it correctly, the approach taken by the two are a bit different:

    Adrynalyne's Vanilla starts with a leaked version of the stock htc rom, strips out the a much of the htc junk as possible while keeping things performing fast and stable (basically rosie? - the launcher + widgets + clocks. Most notably, the phone-related components - dialer, logs/contacts, phone screen, answer screens - are still htc).

    CM seems to go from 'ground up' type of approach, adding to and modding a vanilla version of android. It is very much vanilla, which a number of nice but typically controllable tweaks. This includes a vanilla style dialer, phone, contacts, etc. With the current stable version, it seems the most notable missing component is the camcorder.

    Currently, I am running adryn's pbnj2, which has been working very well, save for the htc phone related issues (mitigated by some add-ons, but not yet to my liking). My biggest problem is that I have invented how I want the phone to look and function, but it is almost a hybrid of the two. In order to deal, I might just take some vacation days and try to develop my own solution.

    CM is compiled from source. However, its still using Eclair components, due to the fact that we do not currently have all the Froyo source released for the Dinc, like the kernel. So their job is much more difficult to fix things.

    CM will be a better product once its all fixed.

    Sorry if this is obvious but the leaked version of 2.2 is from HTC and includes sense correct?
