    Where is the Pro Love? ROMS anyone?

    New to the droid phones and my pro fell into my lap as a lost and found trash can save. It was missing a back, no battery, red moisture dot showing, and locked to verison (Im U.S. at&t unlimited for free because my mother in law rocks and pays for it). Sim unlocked, band unlocked, and rooted now . Surprised at the lack of interest in this phone. I'm coming from a european sim unlocked voda BBerry bold 9700 and the only two things I liked about it were the physical keyboard and no face to touch screen hangups . I started on CM7 but now on APEX 2.0 RC4. I see CM9 but my camera is important for pics on the fly so that's a deal breaker. My question is what elese is out there? I see vague references throughout the web to Liberty and RC1 Droid Pro-Vanilla but this forum has helped me from ground up so I thought I would fish a little here before I take matters into my own hands. I will stay with apex if well advised or try something else unless given a good reason not to. Thanks for any input to this.

    I have tried CM7 and CM9. CM7 I could never get the data switching to work properly. CM9 is outstanding but I have decided to stay with apeX 2.0 for now. It suits my needs perfectly.

    ok

    Checked out cm9 post and they say camera is ok now. Is the battery life good? What would make cm9 have a leg up on apex? I know the prox not working is a apex thing but is there other points on 9 vs apx?

    I have zero bugs on CM9 (that I can think of off the top of my head).

    It's all personal preference in the end.

    My idle battery life on CM7 is excellent, when using the phone... not so much (even underclocked at 800 mhz, and unclocked screen off @ 300 mhz). Haven't used Apex but I hear it's very stable (never had data issues on CM7 as I don't use Wifi). Don't have any of the stability issues others have mentioned about it either.

    other roms?

    so I guess (going back to my original question) cm7, cm9, and apex have the market cornered on roms. I mentioned liberty but like I said the info on other roms just don't seem to to be out there on the pro.

    You should probably note that you're a cdma user, so CM7 & CM9 both work great for you. The 3-21 build of CM9 killed GSM again and since the OP is running on AT&T it won't work for him either.

    To the original poster, folks running on the band unlocked Droid Pro (and I believe GSM users in general) pretty much need to stick with Apex or Stock. That said, Jackpots ICS CM9 build is really close to usable and once he reverts back the telephony changes that the D2G users added (that he bases his build off), it'd probably be the best choice. In the meantime, just stay on apex.

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Liberty was a Droid 2 Global/Droid X rom. I was thinking the same about the Vanilla rom. I know there is a TBH rom, but it's basically stock with root. Other than stock, CM7 and Apex (and depending on requirements, CM9) are the only daily driver roms to use.

    CM9's leg up would be Performance, Security, Customization & Theming. Thats off the top of my head. If you're a CDMA user, I'd say its worth switching. Apex is essentially modified stock.
