So if you are like me and still hangs on to this excellent yet fading Rom.. what should be our next stop.. ?
I'm consistently reading the Forum and learning of issues all across the board with GB Roms so i'm lagging with switching. Is there any solid, stable Rom that offers new fun features?
Anything that offers an experience that is comparable to Sourcery.. ? :icon_eek:
I've heard that GB isn't really that great on our D1, so I'll stay right here until someone else comes along and blows us away with cool new features. I don't see that happening anytime soon.
I feel the same way... to switch to a GB Rom seems like buying into some problems.. i actually started thinking about upgrading the phone soon..
Sourcery is still unbeatable..
No big problems for me using cm7, pe5, or ss5.01. The only issue is the occasional 3g drop after a call, but that's not a deal breaker for me. Everything else has been rock solid on my D1.
As soon as Verizon releases the HTC Thunderbolt, *that* is my upgrade for the year. I've come to the conclusion that my original Droid has about reached the end of it's playing days, and it's spot in my starting lineup (I have three android phones) will be taken by the Thunderbolt. I'm not cutting the D1 from the squad, just moving it to the bench. :)
In the meantime, I'm running Project Elite's GB rom and liking what I see. It's very fast and responsive.
I have been reading issues about 3g drops after calls, sms/mms not getting through, calls not coming through, higher battery consumption, video quality issues, HD quality issues.. and probebly a few more that I'm forgetting.. if I would have to put up with all that just to have my phone displaying an OS version starting with 2.3 I will stick to Sourcery.. anyway features wise it is more advanced then most GB Roms I've been reading about..
I think I might hold back on upgrading until the Bionic comes out..

Probably a good move on your part, but I'd take a look at the HTC Thunderbolt, when it finally does get released.:)

As Eagle mentioned and thanked, actngrezy from PE was very helpful on the build we all love.
Also it has the update push, which maybe they had worked on together or something.
And they added a brilliant item in 5.02 which is the ability to lock several apps in memory rather than just the home, and since GB is so aggressive this has really seemed to help.
Also it has great themes and themers, as opposed to the new cookie cutter style for the tmobile theme engine that is on UDGB, LGB and CMGB. Very neat idea but minimal theming as of now, though I am sure they will become more as the themers evolve with this new tech.
As for GB issues, every droid is different, so here is a shocker, everyone has a very different experience.
I can say the only and I mean only issue I have had on the latest CM, LGB and PE releases is a rare 3g drop for maybe 10 seconds and if more tap and then tap again airplane in the s galaxy widget and it is fine again.
But, that is just me and my li'l OG.
Yeah he's a bad mofo...shut yo mouth...
No issues with not getting calls, texts or battery issues.
I may just be lucky, but then again I've always been lucky.
Like back in '72 when I put a sawbuck on NixonSucks, the number 5 horse, in the 7th at The Belmont Stakes. A billion to one odds and he won by a nose.
That is why many of you know me as Warren Buffet.
As if, I was born in '73 and the droid seems to be one of the few things I have luck with, well that and the ladies.
DWB...I *worry* about you! :):)

So I am covered brother.
But it is nice to have a person, in the State I hate and that hates me right back, care about my well being.
Just for those who don't understand, I went to and am from and live in MICHIGAN, almost sounds like an AA meeting, and Ultra is from our enemy from the South, OH IO!
So it is a mutual respect hatred thing, we still have our uncivil war that I hope will last for years to come.
Stay cool Ultra
