    whats the difference between the roms

    So I was wondering if someone could be super helpful and give me a description on the differences of each Rom.just one line on what their known for. Seems like their all different but I don't know how to choose. Or even narrow it down to try a couple.

    Most of the gingerbread roms are relatively the "same". They all have the same basic features and little add ons. Some give more of a stock feel, and some go all out with the features.

    But really it all comes down to the "name" on it. A lot of people use one rom over another simply because of the developer, or they've been using that devs roms for a long time. Does it mean the other roms are bad? No.

    Best advice, read the changelog/features, but also flashing roms is so easy try out one today, another tomorrow, and find one that suits you.

    I just today started a YouTube series for all the popular roms {
    Simply Stunning
    MIUI
    GPA (Pete's Stock Gingerbread ROM)
    Liquid Gingerbread
    Sapphire
    Steel Droid
    Sourcery
    UltimateDroid
    CyanogenMod (6.1.2 and 7 RC2)
    }

    In each video I go over the features of the ROM.

    I benchmark each ROM with it's default kernel at 600MHz (linpack + quadrant) then benchmark each ROM with RaidZero's 800MHz kernel (linpack + quadrant). Doing benchmarks with both kernels shows how the stock ROM + kernel config runs, then shows how the ROM itself runs (removing the kernel variable).

    I look at how big the ROM is (how much /system space is left).

    I rate each ROM on the basis of {
    Features
    Benchmark Results
    Apparent Smoothness
    Theming/Customization options.
    }

    And give details such as Android version, kernel defaults, default theme, etc.

    Then I have a conclusion, my overall thoughts on the ROM.

    It's not up yet, as doing a full review of so many ROMs takes time. Should be up by Thursday. Hopefully. Will post links when they're online!

    Also, they'll be in 720p, I'm using a camera mount and manual focus, so the video quality will be exceptional. I've done a few already and they look great.

    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.
