I figured this title would attract a little attention so hopefully the helpful advice will outweigh the flamers!
I have a Droid X that I love, but am always looking for new tweaks. I'm thinking that a new ROM is next but looking at what the real benefits are from my current configuration:
I installed a custom rooted GB update, patched with the WugPacked GB WiFi tether patch. Overclocked with Milestone to 1.3 GHz, I use SetCPU to reduce the processor speed to a max of 800 MHz when the screen is off. I am running Juice Defender Ultimate, Autokiller with the Extreme presets, and Titanium Backup. My free memory averages about 150MB. I am using Go Launcher EX as my home app.
My battery life is pretty good (about x1.9 according to JuiceDefender) and after 12 hours I'm typically still at 30-40% battery. I have very few Force Closes and maybe two or three random reboots per month. The only issue i have is sometimes the home screen is a little sluggish, otherwise seems to be running fine.
I am tempted to tweak and add a custom ROM, but wonder what it is that I would be gaining (or losing). Any advice is appreciated from those that have done it and which one they'd recommend.
