anyone that has ran Cyanogen 22.214.171.124 and Ultimate Droid 9.0 care to give his or her opinion?
I've actually swapped between both in the past two days... CM lets you run scripts, is easier on phone memory, is very customizable once you've installed the basics. UD is awesome by the way it lets you configure it through ROM manager. Both are stable, but I'm sticking with CyanogenMod for now.
I agree. UltimateDroid 9.0 is the first ROM i've ran that i've truly been wowed by. SO smooth, SO fast, SO stable. I use my Droid HARD, really push it to the limits, and I've not had a single force close. Even on the stock 2.0.1 I used to get force closes all the time. Not a single one over the past couple days.
I wonder if the good UD and bad UD experiences are dependent on the kernel chosen during the install.
I might try out UD soon, sooo what kernels did you guys choose (good and bad experiences)?
My CyanogenMod experience was pretty bad. I put it when it was 5.0.5 and the whole system felt slower. Home screens (no matter whether launcher, home, or helix) were especially slow.
for the record it is easy to roll back and your not doomed to the stock 2.1 update. I goofed and installed the forced 2.1 update.
I did this
Droid 2.0.1 sbf file released!
and now I am on Ultimate Droid 9.0. No regrets. definitely worth the half hour it took to root for the first time...
