    Poll: Looking to swap ROMs

    After doing a bunch of research on these two, I've settled on either Sapphire or Ultimate Droid as the ROM I'm switching to from Bugless Beast v0.4 (never moved up to 0.5 because of Black Glass).

    I can't decide which direction I should go in, but I value stability and dislike changing ROMs often because of some of the complications of wiping then reloading everything without losing important data (even with TiBu).

    So I'll just put up a poll to get some thoughts on these two ROMs, feel free to post them in the thread. I hadn't seen any threads that compared them head to head, so I thought I'd start one. I appreciate any input.

    I am currnetly using saphire and is by far my fav. I would recommend downloading the 1100 mhz standard volt kernel for it because saphire1.1.1. Is clocked to 800. Now there is nothing wrong with ultimate droid. Like it too. My wife uses it on her droid. Way too many options for customization for my taste. if your looking for some thing very different try using MIUI. Reminds me of an Iphone. Anyways try them out and see which is best for you.

    so many choices why are you limiting yourself to 2

    if you want a nice theme download regular 2.2 and put dark edge on it

    or sapphire and put avalon on it.

    UD roms have a lot of choices and are good roms

    i run sapphire on my orginal droid and incredible they are smooth and quick

    Have you already loaded a recovery program to load ur roms? If not I perfer the sprecovery. Make sure u back up ur phone before u do anything with the rom. I always name my back ups and do an advance back up so I can load everything back the way it was. I have four different roms saved as back ups. I switch back and forth. Make sure you wipe the cache and data before loading either rom u choose. But like before "I" like saphire. But u might like UD better. Try both for a week or so. Make a back up of it and if u don't like ur new rom go back to the one u do like. For battery convervation use set cpu app and make some battery profiles. Enjoy whatever rom u choose and good luck.

    Thanks for the advice, guys. I've used ROM manager for all mine in the past, from BB 2.1 to BB Froyo 0.4 and chevys kernels. I'm going to try to get away from ROM manager. I think Sapphire will be my first experiment, perhaps with Avalon (though I love my black glass theme on bb .4 right now).

    I'm looking into how to apply GAPPs right now.

    Take a look at Succulent Desire 7.0. It's a very smooth running, hassle free rom which has the unusual distinction of coming pre-themed. There are three or four different themes for the 7.0 version, and I understand there will be even more in version 8.0 when it gets released. See Droid Concepts under the Custom Roms area of the forum.
