    Droid Rooted Running 2.1 Pros and Cons

    Pros:
    The new 5 screens is nice.
    Live wallpapers are cool too
    The Gallery for Pictures is much improved
    The menu is nice for all your apps and the layout is smooth and well designed waterfall style.

    CONS:
    No GPS
    No Support for .gif images either.
    No flash player 10
    No multi-touch

    Overall its pretty nice. But i really like the turn by turn navigation. Has anyone found a fix for this? or does theres work?


    Feel free to contribute your pros and cons to this also and agree or disagree too..

    flash player or multi-touch cant be a con because no one with a stock phone has that yet anyway.

    I've been using Greek35T v 0.0.4 for awhile now and GPS seems to be working fine. The ROM is a little buggy in other ways, but nothing I haven't learned to adapt to for now...

    Ehh I dunno. There's a ROM out there that is 2.1 with multi touch. AllDroid.org - View topic - [ROM] NexusOne Updated - Multitouch & More The only issue I really had with this one was pictures not being saved to the SD. I think that's the one. Geez man there have been so many ROM's and updates from a small group of developers that I can't keep track of it all. Try the link I posted. Its money. GPS works fine for me on this one as well. As far a gifs and flash...its a waiting game. I traded my Eris in for the Droid and I gave up flash in the process. I don't really miss it though because pages load faster in its absence.
    Let me google that for you...http://lmgtfy.com/

    Good Point. But what about .gif images? that sucks we can't view them. I am guessing that will come with flash. but who knows for sure.

    Why do you list "No GPS" as a con?? I have been running 2.1 for a couple of weeks now and my GPS works just fine. My ONLY problem with the 2.1 version that I have (Greeks) is the keyboard backlight issue. For those few times that I am texting in the dark, I just use the onscreen keyboard (or the voice input which is only available on 2.1 and works great btw).

    With all due respect, there's not too much I agree with on either list.

    Pros:
    The new 5 screens is nice. True.
    Live wallpapers are cool too. Umm ... NO!!! They dog down the DROID and cause FCs and reboots ... with all 3 ROMs I tested.
    The Gallery for Pictures is much improved True.
    The menu is nice for all your apps and the layout is smooth and well designed waterfall style. True.

    CONS:
    No GPS Mine worked
    No Support for .gif images either. What the others said.
    No flash player 10 Umm ... that's an Adobe thing. Not a 2.1 thing.
    No multi-touch I gots multi-touch all over the place.


    By the way, Flash 10.1 is gonna be released soon. VERY soon. Perhaps even before the OTA 2.1 "official" update.

    My GPS works fine
    The live wallpapers are causing reboots (3 times since yesterday)
    It is a lot more slick but I'm not seeing any MAJOR ground breaking things we couldn't get before.
    5 home screens default is nice but easily done with pandahome, ahome, home++ etc.. I like that it's 5 screens without a boggy home replacement though.
    Caused some issues with some other apps. I have "Beautiful Widgets app" and use the weather/clock widget. You used to be able to touch any part of the clock and it would open the alarm clock settings, this no longer works.

    Also google search by voice seems slower and isnt always picking up sound now.
