Going to give this a try. Which version from rom manager?

None of those. They are all very, very old and should not be installed from RM. Go to the UD section on this forum and find the thread about UD 2.5. Install it directly using Clockwork.

He's just starting out and should try a really stable version before trying a "Beta". IMHO!!!
BTW, OP if you need directions for installing directly from Clockwork, let me know. It's really easy and much more cool than doing it through RM.

Wich ud version should I use. 2.5, or the new 3.0? Installing from clockwork I should download the zip from the forum, go into rom manager, backup, then reboot into recovery wipe data and cache then install the. Zip for the rom correct?

Prior to the install, I would, from the home screen, go into Menu/Settings/Privacy/ and check "Back up my data" and "Automatic Restore". Then go into the Market and do any updates that are listed there for your apps.
Another little tip is that if you are using Launcher Pro, go to Preferences and make a backup of your home screens. Then after the new rom has been installed, you can go back into Preferences and restore your home screens. All your icons/widgets/etc. will be put back exactly as they were.
The first thing about Clockwork is trying to get Rom Manager to flash a good copy onto your phone. Here is a fool proof method to determine whether you have a good copy before trying to reboot into it. Begin by scrolling down and flashing the alternative recovery – SpRecovery. After it successfully loads, scroll up and flash Clockwork. If it takes longer than 3-5 seconds to get the popup telling you the install was successful, reflash it over and over until you do get that popup in 3-5 seconds. Once that happens, you have a good install.
Once you have rebooted into Clockwork and are navigating through its menu, if at any time it hesitates that means it is about to reboot automatically. When Clockwork does reboot and the screen goes dark, immediately press and hold the X key until the phone reboots back into Clockwork. Clockwork will now be totally stable until you finish.
I'd do the nandroid backup from Clockwork too. I simply do not trust RM (it's probably fine now, as my negative history goes back quite a while with it). Just select nandroid and then select backup. Again, if this is the first thing you are doing in Clockwork, and it has not rebooted prior to this, you will occasionally get an error message about your sdcard or some other message. If this happens it means that Clockwork is about to reboot. Just be patient and press the X when the screen goes dark.
After the backup is complete, then select (I don't remember the exact selection language as I don't do this part very often) Wipe Cache and Wipe Partition (or some such language). After that has completed then select
"install zip from sdcard." Then navigate to your rom file and select it and scroll down to select the "yes". Your rom will then install and you can boot. The first boot of a new rom almost always takes a disturbing amount of time. More than once, I have been on the brink of aborting the boot up. Just be patient. Once your phone boots try to immediately turn on the wifi as the market is going to start downloading all your previously installed apps. This step can take 15-20 minutes so it's good to just let the phone sit and do its thing for a while.
After the apps are back and you've played with the phone enough to determine that you like it and it is behaving the way you want it to, you need to reboot into Clockwork and make a new backup. I also suggest after making backups that you use an app such as Root Explorer and navigate Sdcard/Clockwork/Backups and then rename the backups to something you will later recognize (ie. 01-08-UD2.5). That way you can have different roms or roms with different themes and be able to switch between them at will. Personally I keep at least two backups of two different roms. One is themed in all Gold/Maroon and the other is themed in all white/black. I switch any time I get tired of the one I'm currently running.
Ok, did not mean to write a book.

Bugless Beast is a one-step install like any other rom.
I have had excellent stability with Revamp3d 1.1 and snkbitten 2.2.2. Plain-jane Android but very smooth and trouble-free. Been using Revamp3d since October.
UD 2.5 is okay, but I hate the theme and hence stopped using it.
