Best (most stable) ROM?
My mother-in-law asked me to make her phone faster like I did for my brother-in-law, meaning root, a ROM and an overclock if its possible on the Eris. According to the Sticky, these are the Froyo ROMs available for the Eris:
Cyanogen Tazz-By tazzpatriot
CELB Froyo-By Conap
What is the best rom in terms of stability and speed without an overclock. I noticed Buffed is overclocked already so it is possible, but I want a stable one for her so she doesn't call me every other day because the phone is acting up.
From my experiences in hacking several Eris's, grab KaosFroyo v38 but make sure you flash the CFSv6 kernel or else you'll have camera & battery life issues. You'll still be overclocked but you'll get so much more stability with the alternate kernel.
The kernel I speak of can be found here: [GPL]220.127.116.11 CFS Kernel V6 10/17/10 - xda-developers
Johnomaz, there are more FroYo roms, I just havent had time to get more added to the list yet. :redface:
ive ran nothing but kaos froyo and love them i think im running the 10.1 right now
I've rooted 3 Eris's, all are running KaosFroyo v38 with the CFSv6 Kernel and all are running as happily as can be. It's so nice seeing new life being breathed into a slightly older phone. They can even play Angry Birds!
If you're looking for stability, you might want to stick with an Eclair (2.1) ROM. All of the Froyo ROMs I've checked out have had one problem or the other running on the Eris.
I've had good luck with xtrSense 4.6. It's Android 2.1, includes HTC Sense, has app2sd support, and has conservative overclocking + battery enhancements enabled by default.
Thanks guys, I'm not putting too much work into doing this as it isn't even my phone, but at the same time, I don't like to see a fellow Droid phone get neglected.
John, I just flashed the Dual boot ROM to my wifes phone, and other than cranking the CPU up to 845 Mhz and having to do a battery pull, its nice so far. Only problems Im having so far are, the Weather (gps) on Beautiful widgets isnt working, and MyBackUp Por wont restore my apps on the FroYo side. The market wouldnt restore, but Ive never had good luck with that. The 2.1 side is flawless.
PS: Even the camera works. Im going to post over on XDA and see if they can help on the other 2 problems.
John, just an update, when I woke up this morning the BW weather was working fine, but the apps still havent restored yet.
