    I'm looking to flash the most current version of Ultimate Droid but all I find in Rom Manager are:

    Ultimate Droid Froyo Beta
    Ultimate Droid New Era 1.0
    Ultimate Droid V10
    Ultimate Droid V10 (Different theme
    Ultimate Droid V9.8.0

    I assume the last is the most recent that I want to flash?

    So it's unavailable to download through Rom Manager? I'll have to download to SD and install through there? Same with the theme I choose?

    I hope I am happy with it. I'm very unhappy with my Cyanogen - I drop calls constantly.. am finding myself recently with people calling me and going straight to my voice mail. Frustrating.

    I noticed the same thing on my ROM Manager. You're better off just downloading the most up to date version of any ROM from here on the forums and transferring them to your SD card that way.

    Will do.
    Also looking for something Purple/Pink/Yellow to use as a theme for my GF's droid.. anything coming to your guy's minds?

    Would love to have something that has Facebook themed also as she used that quite often :)

    Purple Passion Theme - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    [Release] New Theme - PINK-LIFE - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    She likes the Pink one - Which would honestly be the easiest I imagine since it's through Lithium and that seems like a rather easy rom to start with.

    So this will be my first time to actually swap from a Rom so let me ask just to make sure I have everything down:

    1. First I'll make a back-up of my current rom (I did a Backup and a Nandroid - Not sure on the difference but better safe than sorry).

    2. Since I can't download UD8 through Rom Manager I'd be forced to boot into recovery and wipe date / cache (I would assume this makes me Lose Rom Manager..?) So then I'll be forced to Redownload it. Once Redownloaded Flash a new clockwork recovery?

    3. Connect USB / Download UD8 / Watermark'd for it since that'll be the theme that I use.

    4. Install rom from SD card and I'm set?

    More or less I'm worried about step 2.

    After you wipe and install UD8, you will sign into your Google account and your apps will repopulate the phone. I only had a couple of apps that I had to manually reinstall.

    You shouldn't lose recovery if you're loading a new ROM. Recovery (x+power) is where you will wipe and install the ROM. Installation should have no effect on Recovery.

    Otherwise, you're on the right track! Nandroid and backup are the same thing. Just make sure you Backup just before switching ROMs to make sure you have an up-to-the-second snapshot of the phone's state.

    I can't help you with the theme as I don't theme my phone at all.

    You're gonna LOVE this ROM! :D

    Well here we go!

    I downloaded to my SD card - Clicked in Rom Manager and went from there. I just wiped and cached from there :)

    Slowly but surely.

    Okay it's all on :)
    Still has my Cyanogenmod background and such.. but looks fine. It's automatically downloading all my apps too! Sweet.

    We're all right here to walk you through it. I always use x+power as my operating environment, just because ClockworkMod Recovery is so finicky. I want to make SURE I can access it.
