    To answer direct, yes I do want to. But I don't have an HD camera, I filmed at my friend's house who does and he still has all the raw footage, un-editted (which is like 20min per ROM). So lots to cut/fast forward and I have some additional effects I will add.

    So sorry, not tonight.

    Editing video take sooo much time, it's amazing. Not just grab a little here,
    piece together there, and it's done. You got to watch it all and find each
    section and splice it together so it looks natural. Good luck with the project,
    look forward to see it.

    PS running GPA13 at 1gz, and really loving it.

    You may not want to hear this, but to find the ROM for you, you just have to test a couple out and the kernals and choose which runs best for your droid. For the longest time I was using Pete's Rom's, bugless beast, but I didn't like the inactivity of updates ( i understand he's busy and he has a social life ) but my OCD of updates would get to me.

    Eventually I tried Ultimate Droid's Roms, but for some reason my droid did not like his ROMS ( Force close issues on random apps ).

    I decided to give Project Elite's GB rom 5.0.2 a chance and my phone is running great with RZR's 1.2 kernal, so i will be sticking with this ROM for a while.

    Trail and error. if you decide to use RZR recovery method, it'll make wiping data/cache/partitions and trying different ROMS makes it easy.

    It sounds easy but I can't get the Roms to work. I downloaded a rom then went into rzr and made nandroid backup, wiped data, and then installed new rom, but it would ony load to the m in the beggining so I had to restore my nandroidBackup, what did I do wrong?

    What ROM are you trying? Did you make sure you downloaded the right file and installed the right file in rzr?

    The question of "are you rooted" isn't a problem since you are already using rzr's recovery.

    I use rzr recovery as well. I download the ROM i would like to try out via computer, mount my droid via USB and transfer the ROM zip file to my SD card. Unmount and reboot into recovery.

    Wipe all 3 times and install ROM zip.

    You are doing the right thing to wipe when installing ROMS. Some people (including myself) when installing and trying different ROMS "wipe all" three times to make absolutely sure they are starting from scratch to avoid any problems.

    If you go to droid hacks - custom roms - project elite, girls love droid has a great step by step on how to install a ROM using RZR recovery. I skipped step 2 since I don't use titanium backup. Follow the instructions and you should be good.

    Pick a rom and use her recovery instructions. Its very detailed
