    Have you considered reading? Sweet Jesus, you managed to make it to the right forum, dont be afraid to open a thread or two. I would start with the one that have the word "rom" in it.

    I hope to see the day when people learn to do things for themselves. "What Rom do I want?"

    cmon man. Your mother should have stopped picking your clothes out!

    I'm just playin dude, don't take it to heart. I feel ya though, when I first came to rooting I couldn't figure out what the heck a nandroid was lol.

    my advice to you. read. search. then ask questions. people will ALWAYS help.

    People are dicks about answering questions. Oh well... hey, if there's a redundant question then link to the relevant thread. If the OPs time is cheap enough to go searching for answers then so is yours.

    Hey I understand completely! I've had my Incredible for little over a week now and I've been reading non-stop. Now I'm so confused I'm not sure which rom to go with.

    I have the new radio installed and when I tried the 8/1 leak it looked like it installed. But it didn't or did kinda sorta, but not. Don't ask I still can't figure out why I have 3G, 720p, either. So I still want to upgrade to the 2.2. I was waiting for an official from unrevoked but I'm not sure how long that will take.

    So now I've been reading for 3 days straight now and REALLY don't know what I want now. I can't seem to keep them all straight any more. Is there one place that can give perhaps the basics of what each rom features, such as Jeagermeister vs. Skyraider vs. Koush vs. CyanogenMod and so on? At least the basics of each?

    I read alot about them before I could actually install a rom (was waiting for a new USB Cable, new puppy = destroyed cables lol)

    anyways so far I have not had any problems with adrenlyns Second Wave ROM , it's just like stock . I've used it with LauncherPro, ADW and Sense and it works great . If you want 2.2 with reliability I reccomend it . But I haven't used any others on the Incredible

    Here is my take.

    I've used JagerRom 2.2, SkyRaider 2.2 & CyanogenMOD (CM6T8) 2.2


    JagerROM
    It was the first one I tried, nothing special in my opinion. It was stable and worked. I used it at the early stages so it may have gotten better, not that there was anything wrong with it, just it didnt set itself apart from the others in my opinion.

    SkyRaider
    Man I loved this ROM (loved is the operative word). I had 1.8, 1.9 and 2.0 (or 2.2? whichever is the newest). I still flip flop every other day too, on friday I flashed back and forth between CM6 and SR a few times to really compare them, but I digress. Everything works, as a Sense ROM it is one of the best, as a Senseless ROM and it really up there. This ROM is seamless and i HIGHLY recommend it for the average rooter.

    CM6
    Lets be honest, this is the hackers ROM. The reason I love this ROM and always come back to it in the end is the ability to customize everything. To mess with everything. Sense really is stripped, bloatware really is stripped, its like a naked lite ROM. I think this is faster/smoother than SR but that could be my phone/opinion. If you like tinkering, changing things, make your phone unique, I recommend this ROM. I've had a lot of success with it.


    With that being said, you can also just do what I do. Get APPBrain, do nandroid backups frequently and BUY/DONATE to ROM Manager & ClockWorkMod. I flash a new ROM every other day without ever effecting the necessities of my phone (calls, texting, email). CM6 is the ROM for me but hopefully this helped the OP. Asking people gets you their opinions, form some of your own ;)
