    My recommendation is Bugless Beast .4, soon BB .5. His ROMs have always seem to run the best for me. Quick and very stable. I have noticed that Ultimate Droid slows down my phone a bit. Sapphire .8 is also good but a little feature dry right now. Kangerade 5.0.9 is also a great ROM. Like someone else said. There are a lot of good stable ROMs out there now. I would recommend using ROM Manager because it is extremely easy to use. Just make sure you flash the recovery a couple times. If you want to use the SPRecovery you currently have now, you will need to find the ROM, Download it and transfer it to the root your SD card labeled "Update.zip" (basically "Update" because the file should be in zip format). Then wipe data/cache and wipe cache three times. After that choose install from SD card and find it and install it.
    Thank you. Great rundown. At what point and what is the best way to re-load all my apps? I'd like to load them apps2SD if possible. I'd like to do it in batch format, too.
    Download titanium backup from the market. Backup up your apps using that. You can then reinstall titanium backup when you have your new ROM. I am not sure about moving all apps to the SD card in a batch. Just make sure you don't put apps with Widgets on the SD card if you plan to use them. The Widgets will not work.

    Titanium backup is good but another good one that is simple to use and saves your call logs, txt, apps and home features. Its called Mybackup Pro it is very noob friendly, i think Titanium is a little complicated

    OK. I took the plunge with BB. I read that it was supposed to install apps2sd by default but they look like they're not there?

    I also lost my Astrid tasks...are they on my sd card anywhere?

    So far so good...my DROID automatically downloaded all programs. I had the backup cloud checked in settings. Is there where they came from?

    Your Astrid tasks are probably gone. If you wiped your phone before you installed BB it would have removed any of your user data.

    Thnx! Is there any way to save that stuff for "next time?" I thought it was going to be backed up with the app data backup...

    You guys are great. Thnx for all the help!

    I used Titanium Backup. After I installed my ROM, everything went back on my phone automatically. Is there something I need to move back manually? Is my Astrid stuff in there? : )
