    Installed SholesMod 2.0.5....

    No noticeable difference, extremely buggy. FC'd on everything, droid even crashed twice.

    Rolled back to 2.0.3

    And i thought 2.0.3 was buggy lol, considering switching to BB...

    Must be something on your end because 2.0.5 is smooth as can be, no FCs, and very stable at 1.2 ghz. In the other 2.0.5 thread, others are reporting similar results to mine.

    Did you wipe your data when you flashed the ROM? If you didn't wipe the data that may be why its so buggy

    Sometimes as much as you try to avoid it, a wipe is completely necessary to have a smooth running ROM

    I try to do a wipe every time I switch between ROMS. That way, if you start having issues, you'll be able to narrow down what is causing it a little easier.

    I had to do the install twice. On the first try, it got to 62% downloaded and froze. I had to pull the battery and start over. That time worked like a charm. Mine is WAY better on 2.0.5 than any 2.0.3 version. CPU benchmarks are about 15% faster than with 2.0.3 @ 1GhZ (2.0.5 @1GhZ too). 2.0.5 seems faster @800 than 2.0.3 did @1000. 1.2 GhZ seems much faster than the previous high of 1 GhZ. That may be because the 2.1 launcher seems absent from 2.0.5. I did use it with 2.0.3. Since 2.0.3 didn't give me any problems like others reported with the 2.1 launcher, I figured I just lucked out. It was a bit of a pain in the neck having to reconstitute all of the home screens, but I'm sort of glad I did, because every time I do it I manage to get the total arrangement a little more to my liking. The phone is noticeably faster than 2.0.3 with the 2.1 launcher at the same CPU speed. So don't mourn much for that loss. It is really a gain.

    To the OP, I'd reflash the ROM if it were me. I think my first problem was a drop away from 3G into 1x at just the right/wrong time. I was bummed with 2.0.3 the first time I tried it, but a reflash cured it. I did not wipe data FWIW.

    My Droid is completely happy with 2.0.5 and seems quite stable @ 1.2GhZ.
