My D1 had serious software issues and the phone did not work properly until I flashed custom roms to fix it.
I have been very happy with the stock D2 and just finally rooted not long ago. I tried a rom that took out much of the Blur and had to go back to stock because I found I actually liked a couple of the widgets. I have since themed the stock rom with 928Droid Black Glass and it's pretty slick!
I will be very happy when they fully crack this phone and more options become available for sure! But to be honest, this is a good enough phone as is that I can survive the wait!
