I just rooted my original Droid over the weekend. The Chevy1 custom ROM is the first one I've used. (Actually I did load one other custom ROM first but the Droid became very sluggish so I changed to this one).
So far things seem to be working decently. Battery life is reduced, but I assume from what I've read here that installing one of the kernals here will fix that. I have downloaded several based upon comments here as to which different people have had good results with.
I'm wondering if I should partition the SD card. Searching around I read about doing this primarily for the purpose of loading programs to SD in a new partition. I note that this ROM lets many programs go into SD which previously did not, so I wonder if there is still a reason to set up new partitions.
If there is a benefit, what settings should I use?
If this is a borderline issue, I have a new micro SD card ordered which I will receive tomorrow. I figure that if I'm going to have to repartition a SD card, this is the time to do it as I would only have to copy data from the current card to the new, as opposed to doing a full backup, repartition, and then copy everything back. Therefore if there is a reason to set up new partitions, tomorrow is the day to do it.
