I'm a new user to this forum & site, yet not to the DROID series. I wield a Motorola DROID A855 and hopefully soon a DROID X. I like the stock ROM but its just not as powerful nor flexible as the custom work around the web.
With ROM Manager Premium (via Market) I use ClockworkMod Recovery and have tried out CyanogenMod, Bugless Beast, Ultimate Droid, and DroidMod with an overclocked kernel. Check out my signature for what I'm currently running.
Also, I work for Verizon Wireless... so I've got a leg up on the latest and greatest.
