    ****EXTREMELY IMPORTANT**** GB could brick your phone...read.

    source.
    [NOTICE] Gingerbread Related Bricking - xda-developers

    if you are running gb...I suggest you revert back to the froyo radio and a froyo rom.

    I will be doing this as soon as I have access to my phone.

    This can happen even after youve been running fine for a few days.

    That kinda sucks.

    Next time, i'd recommend not flashing ROMS with an Android version that hasn't been released. Just to be safe...

    its not the rom...its the alpha radio that causes the endless bootloop.

    THat is the risk we all take when flashing roms. We are well aware of the possibilities. As soon as the radio issue is fixed...bam...Im right back on gb. Its much nicer than the froyo version...and sense 3.0 is friggen sweet.

    True.
    To me the benefits of flashing ROMS shadow over the risks.

    I am using a Droid X so I can only wish someday a moto phone gets blessed with HTC Sense...lol

    Sad to say, but I doubt any Moto Device will have a fully working sense ui on it.
    HTC has to protect their bread and butter. And that's Sense UI.
