    Which rom?

    I've been running liberty gb rom, latest nightly, but I'm wanting to try a new rom.

    Suggestions? I've been looking at miui and cyanogen. But not sure which gets better battery life. And I read somewhere a new kernel was coming out so I'm not sure if I should wait to flash.

    And if I go with cyanogen, should I use the all in one? Or sbf manually?

    I'd wait a bit...CVPCS just tweeted that he has 2nd-init GB kernel working on the DX, so we should see CM7/MIUI D2 ROMs coming out "soon" that should have more stability and better battery life due to the GB kernel.

    Would it be worth it to flash to cyanogenmod now?

    I wouldnt wait at all since you can just flash the GB kernal 2nd init roms when they come out.

    MIUI-something different with a lot of polish(ok battery life)
    Cm7-AOSP, fast, tons of customization(less that desirable battery life but tolerable)
    Zombiestomped-battery life, blur

    -My opinion

    No, the battery life is terrible.

    MIUI is amazing, and Framework43 not only got 2nd-init going for the GB kernel, but someone also donated him a D2. I'm looking forward to the future of MIUI. CM7 is awesome, however, they still haven't quite contained the battery issue. If you're near a charger, CM7 is a good option. ZS is dead.

    Ive never used liberty so I cant compare, but I found Zombiestomped to have pretty dang good battery life, so if thats what you want go for it (although development has stopped for it). Cm7 and MIUI are getting better battery as time goes on, i beileve there is a bettery fix for each that helps a little bit.

    Oh and Urbanbouncer, they really got MIUI on a GB kernal for droid 2? Like on thats ready for download, or in experimental stages? I havnt heard of this.

    so pumped for 2ndinit GB kernel! Especially since I use apex rc2 as my daily rom. CM7 was nice but batt life was not good enough for me.
