    Which ROM and why (for those who have tried multiple)

    OK, I'm sure this has been done a bunch, but I can't find a good, clear poll with experienced comments that's recent.

    What are your thoughts? Why do you like what you like? What are the pros & cons of the different ROMs you've tried?

    Ud & dm

    I started out with that weird Greek ROM a few months ago, then updated to Bugless Beast for a couple of days before settling on Sholes. I went through a few different versions of that and ended, of course, on DM1, where I stayed for quite a while. I just got too antsy seeing all these other ROMs, so I did some reading and the best things I read were about BD's UD, so I tried 7.8. It was faster & more stable than DM1, which surprised me. So I've been on UD since, but I'm hesitant to make the move to 9.8, because BD has created his own base with this one and it seems like maybe some kinks might need to be worked out - but the main reason is that UDv9 does everything I want and it's fast & stable so I don't see the benefit.

    Today I tried the latest Cyanogen, but restored UD after a couple of hours - it seemed slower and I didn't see any benefit.

    I have no doubt that I'll go back to DM when they release their next one, but I have a feeling I'm on the fastest & most stable ROM.

    Edit: Been running rooted Stock 2.1 (mine is from Pete, but it's still pure stock) for a few weeks now and it would take some major features to get me to switch. I have no issues. Nothing. The camera and every other feature always works instantly no matter where I am or what I'm doing. NO freeze ups, ever. Yeah, this is the one. I've themed a mixture of nextheme, 928's theme, and Droidinator to make the perfect theme for it too.

    Ok if you are looking for good looks choose adamz or ud, for speed choose chevyno1, and for both choose bugless. They all get about the same amount of battery.

    UD 9.8 has been very solid for me. No kinks here.

    UD 9.8 works perfectly. Fast, stable, I actually have never had to overclock yet. It runs much cooler then UD 9. Everything is perfect on UD 9.8. I was with CM for a while and loved it. But after I switched back to UD I stuck with it because it seemed much better.

    I'd guess these will be common reasons, and were for me.

    1) the darn thing works and is stable
    2) good support from the dev/community. If it breaks or I have a problem others exist to help me out
    3) look and feel. I'm happy with it and can tweak that further if I want to.

    The above is why I've stuck with it

    The below is why I chose it in the first place:

    1) good list of features
    2) instructions were layed out nicely for a manual install
    3) the day I decided to root the first few posts in the thread I started recommended this one. I went with the crowd's advice and here I am.

    I think if the first 3 occur that breeds some loyalty. Sure, you bought a GM and a Ford might save you some gas but if you really like the car you stick with the brand. It starts up, has some speed to it, and I like the color.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    CyanogenMod :-)

    I just love and prefer CyanogenMod because first its just cool to know I'm using an almost legendary source build of the original Android custom ROM lol. This ROM has been compiled and tweaked for years since the G1 and infancy of Android itself. And now we finally have this very widely used build on Motorola not to mention certain little features such as 360 degree auto-rotation and built-in tethering into Settings are pretty neat. And yes it does come as "stock" themed, but that is because it is meant to be a kind of, "supped" up stock phone instead of the one Google and Verizon give us. Just like how DroidMod is stock themed. It is meant for the user to do whatever they want with it.

    I started out on the sholes ROMs and stuck with them for quite a while. But then I started seeing and hearing about of these different ROMs and, well, I just had to see for myself. I mean I didn't root so that I could stick to just one. I can say that I have tinkered with just about every ROM from each of the devs and after staying on UD for a while I found that I was more satisfied with Chevys SS, and especially his new ESE81 based ROM. Its runs very smooth and cool. Even with his 1250 kernel it runs cool. Its fast and stable. I very rarely get an FC of any sort. That's just me tho. I think it comes down to personal preference IMO.

    I've been using Ultimate Droid for a while now after using Bugless for a long time. I tried CM for a short while. I'm now stuck on UD because it just plain works on my phone - fast, stable and trouble free. I can't find a reason to change to anything else. The longer we go with Rom development, the more the "same" that all become. The main differences, as I see it at this point, is in the appearance/themes. They all work great, though some may work a little better or worse on an individual phone.

    One thing I really, really like about Ultimate is BD's intense involvement and responsiveness on this board. He responds and responds quickly.
