Ok so I got bored today and figured I would flash some of the more popular ROMs on here to see which one worked best with my Droid 1. The results may or may not surprise you.
First of all, let me get this out of the way:
Regardless of what rom YOU are are running, this is just my opinion on MY device that way I can put my opinion out there on multiple ROMs in 1 thread.
Simply Stunning 5.2 w/ Stock Kernel:
Quite a bit of random reboots along with GPS being slightly inaccurate.
MIUI 1.5.13 w/ Stock Kernel:
Pretty nice build, everything ran ok. Don't like the fact that there's no app drawer and the fact that it's pretty much an iOS clone.
Liquid GB w/ Stock Kernel:
Laggy after running for a few hours. Very laggy when unlocking the screen. Music "skipped" while playing and when the screen would go dim. After unlocking the screen it took about 5-10 seconds for Wifi or 3G to resume. LOVED the theme choice! Frost Bite was awesome! Very low benchmark scores. Loved the extra options like bootanimation and all that.
Project Elite w/ Stock Kernel:
Just overall didn't like it. GPS seemed snappy though and very accurate. Horrible battery life.
CM7 (Latest Nightly Build #78) w/ Stock Kernel:
Almost flawless! The only problem I could even find with this was the fact that the USB Transfer option only works with 3 different kernels. The stock Kernel, Prime's Kernel and Peter Alfonso's Kernels. Other than the USB Transfer issue, this ROM is almost flawless and will definitely be my everyday runner!!
If you actually took the time to read this and think that I did something wrong when flashing the ROM that you like, you're wrong. I know what I'm doing being a dev myself and know how to flash a ROM and how to read instructions. So if you're all butt hurt because I said something bad about your ROM then don't even bother commenting. Again this post was MY opinion about MY device. If you have something constructive to say then by all means comment. If you just want to gripe, go to a different post.
