I have tried a couple different Gingerbread ROMs on my OG Droid. I tend to favor UD, but with the latest was missing a lot of messages, even with the Lock Messaging App in Memory option selected.
I am trying out LGB 1.3, with the 800mhz Kernel. Battery life is now as great as UD, but I am fine with that as long as I do not lose messages. Can anyone confirm whether messaging issues are resolved with the 2.3.3 build of GB? Also, does Compache have any impact on this? I seemed to get more messages when I disabled Compcache, but am not sure if that is just coincidence or reality.
