    I've always been a sense guy, but I'm willing to experiment. I love my Inc and compared to my Eris, the speed is awesome. But I'm using several apps that seem to really slow things down lately so I'm going to make some changes. In your opinion, whats the fastest, most responsive, glitchless enough to be an everyday Rom?

    Cyanogenmod hands down. I'm always running the latest nightly and am so happy.

    I've wanted to go to CM7 but have always gotten freaked out when I start reading the intro (the stuff about some times it won't work, some things will come and go). Is it safe to say that this far in, I won't experiance these issues? Also, when I go the DL page there are the nightly's and stable. Am I missing out by going to the last stable as opposed to the nightly?

    I only run it part time now but there's simply nothing faster for this phone, not even arguable.

    So the reason why those disclaimers are there is so that you understand the risks you run flashing roms, in this case cyanogenmod. When cyanogenmod first rolled out to our device there existed many more bugs and things not working than now; that is just how it is. At this point you have two popular options.

    First is that you can simply flash the latest stable mod and enjoy your brand new device; enjoy it as if it is the only cyanogenmod you'll flash/use. This is a great option for someone who wants to try it out and will most likely stay on cyanogenmod as is.

    The second option is my favorite: I flashed nightly 30 or something like that months ago. Every night I check to see if an updated build has posted, flash the update and enjoy whatever bugs have been fixed and new features that may come from the newest build. This option is more intensive in that you must be proactive about making backups, must reflash a custom kernel if you use one, change your boot animation if you like that sort of thing, and most importantly, be accepting of bugs, glitches, and general imperfections.

    With that all said, I must admit that I have never been a more pleased android user than I am now. I got through the growing pains of learning this device, the pros and cons of various roms, and how to be super diligent in my methodology when modifying my device.

    Cyanogenmod has never been as stable and bug free as it is right now. I would even go a step further and say that nightly build 158 (the latest and greatest) is near perfect and trumps the current stable mod.

    You are coming to cyanogenmod (if that is your choice) at a great time. Remember that whichever route you choose, be educated, follow instructions carefully, and reach out to the folks in the #dinc irc when you feel lost or don't understand something. Those guys always come through in the clutch. Oh...and always properly wipe.

    My problem is I never know which one to download. The webpage is hard to understand unless you have been following their development. And they seem to have about 1000 different versions, not just of nightly but of all kinds of other different versions as well. For example, the post above mentions build 158. I can't even find build 158 on the webpage. I see 83, 162, 164, 155, etc., but no 158. Plus, I don't even know what all these different build versions mean because they all have different names. I see cm_buzz_155, cm_liberty_162, etc. It's just confusing for a CM newbie. They really need to organize things better, IMO.

    Everyone raves about CM though so i'd love to figure out which one to try. Seems like a great ROM based on all i've read.

    The word.after cm_ in the build.is the devise. You are looking for "inc "

    I love cm7 but currently use miui. Both are great. I use incredikernel (Chad's) as well with either rom.

    As for speed both cm7 and miui fly. Neither is perfect but that is because they are cutting edge.

    Can't go.wrong with either.

    Thank you for the feedback. I made the jump the other night to CM build 158 and it's been working great, I can't believe how fast it is. New question same topic, is there somewhere to see common problems/fixes? I'm not recieving pix msgs, I don't know if that is a common thing so I hate to ask in the CM7 thread, but I also don't feel like sifting through 500+ posts for the answer.

    It does, but again, there are a million different versions listed there even for nightlies (unless i'm missing something). Being new to CM, I have no idea of the differences between them, which one is best to use, etc.

    EDIT: I'm a dolt. I see what i'm looking for. I was clicking on the nightly link at the top of the page and it was changing the listing at the bottom to all of the different versions with different names. If I just click the link you provided and then scroll down, all the standard builds are listed in order.
