    Charts: The State of the DROID ROM-o-sphere - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    Here are some charts of the top ROMs out there for different DROIDs. Which one(s) do you guys prefer? How long does everyone think it will take to port one over to the TB? Do you think LTE will create any particular difficulties, as compared to 3G?

    1. Does this mean it's fully unlocked like the OG Droid/Nexus 1?

    2. Is the hotspot working with 4G or just 3G? Will it be able to work with 4G later or is that another issue altogether?

    I don't know if its the same, but from what I've read so far, the permanent root they did to this pre-production phone is about as good as you can get (so similar level of access/control as those phones), and they don't expect things to be too different with the production model. I'm no expert on this stuff yet, I'm still learning though.

    I think it will be both, if not at launch then shortly after with a simple software update. That was one of the issues that could have been a possible cause for a delay. I think I read on another forum somewhere that there was trouble when going back and forth from 3G to 4G or something like that, but that issue was fixed. I don't think we will really know for sure until it comes out though unless blackmanx or some other tester comes in here and gives us an answer.

    I would love to see if the MIUI team would look at moving over to the TB. I had to drop it on my Droid1 because of so many problems, but it has such great potential I figure it'll eventually be one of the best ROMs out there.

    I went to this chat with the developers, they said that it is fully unlocked like the Droid (OG), but to keep in mind that this was a pre-production unit. They said that the final one shouldn't be much different, however.

    They also said that the tethering worked, was 4G, and 3G works too!!


    Also they said the release date is the 17th, the 24th is the XOOM.



    This has got to be my next phone.

    Cool. Pretty much confirmed what I was saying. Good to hear the 17th is still on the table for BB. My local BB where I pre-ordered said "no" to the 14th and didn't think they would get them in until sometime between 2/20 and 2/28 (he was very reluctant to give me a specific date), but maybe they will show up sometime this week (fingers crossed). It's getting harder and harder to wait until 2/24 with all the leaks, pics, videos, and news lately, but I've already waited 4 months.

    Hope the same or similar exploit can be used. I plan on getting this shortly.
