    Depends on what day of the week (and sometimes what time of day) you ask me.

    virtuous 3.1 right now

    once I get this changing ROMs down to a science and can do it quicker (opposed to the hour or so it takes me now), I will be trying a couple different ones on for size

    my curious list: cyanogen, skyraider, uncommon sense, redemptive revolution, more to come

    version 2.0 of Virtuous with Adrenalynes custom battery saving kernel. runs great and i have put so much work into it that i don't feel like updating and doing it all again. i have done a lot of tweaks that i don't feel like doing again, so why fix what aint broken.

    I've tried Redemptive rEVOlution, CM, Virtuous and either Skyraider or Uncommon Sense.

    Right now rockin' the MIUI.

    Wouldn't mind tryin' the Feather, but can't find a good link that isn't full.

    Do a nandroid backup with your current setup...then mod away!

    but why? what i have works perfect and i don't feel like modding another new rom from scratch again. i mean, i did things that i am not even completely sure i could reproduce again. i took the audio drivers from the Desire HD port and plugged them into my current rom and am not even sure what files they were anymore. i'm just going to stick with what i have. it's been running completely flawlessly for quite a while now. i've been running this rom since the day it was released and i've had no issues with it at all.

    All the more reason to do a nand backup. If you ever mess it up you can restore it exactly as it is mods and all.

    You originally said you have made a lot of custom tweaks that you don't feel like doing over again. Nandroid backup will restore your phone exactly as you have it now. Once you backup, you have the freedom to experiment with new stuff while having the security of knowing you are just a restore away from your comfort setup.

    trust me, i have several back ups of this rom from several different points along this journey. i have a few different nandroids on my SD card and also have a few on my PC that i transferred as a backup of the backup. i wanted to make sure that if something went wrong that i always had this to fall back on. this has by far been the best rom i have had on this phone and i do not want to lose it.

    i have played around with numerous different roms and always go back to this one. it's fast, stable and just works. it's the most stable this phone has ever been. when the Desire HD ports were the latest thing i was all over them flashing every single update and it got old real quick. i also had the motorola droid and had it rooted as well, i've been doing this a while and it's kinda getting old. at this point i just want to stick with something that works and not mess with it everyday or two.

    i will not be leaving this rom until the official build with the new htc sense is released for our phone.

    If that's what works for you, that's great. I wasn't judging. You must made it sound like (in your initial post) that you weren't switching solely because you had a heavily tweaked ROM.

    well, that kind of is the reason. it's heavily tweaked and it's just to much work to do this to another rom, and for what reason when the one i am using works perfectly fine. i mean, i see no other roms worth switching for. there are lots of great roms out there, but i am content with the one i have at the moment. it's rock solid and does everything i want. there is nothing that another rom offers that this one doesn't, that i actually need.

    You're getting the most out of your phone and its doing exactly what you want it to do.

    I wouldn't change either.

    I just have this insatiable urge to try all the ROMs I can right now (because I'm new to it). ;)

    I've been messin' around with my wife's droid, also. Every time her phone acts up, she wants to take it to Verizon. I think she's finally starting to trust me to fix it, although she has absolutely NO idea what I actually do to it.

    It works best that way.

    Using MIUI now, really digging the look and feel. Have a great backup of SR 3.3.2 fully loaded and ready to roll and another new one of Redemtive 2.0 for when I'm bored. (prob this weekend, let the dust settle over there)
