Out of all the GB Roms i tried UD was the least buggy but went back to Froyo pretty quickly.
Tapped from my Sourcerized D1
Well for the time being at least Im saying goodbye to UD, it may sound stupid & be a trivial issue especially since he does this all for free for us UD followers, but the lack of communication, updates, anything that comes from the UD team is minmal at best, & even going to his facebook page u will find mixed emotions as well, from people praising the rom (which i did to) to people asking for thier money back who had signed up & donated to getting the "nightlies" that by some peoples account have now turned into "monthlys" but again one must remeber he does do this for free & i cant even imagine the hours that go into development, but Im a people person & his seemingly lack of respect & communication to at the very least to those who have donated I dont understand, even at his "home" forum is there very rarely a post or update from him, much less here. Again I will say that I know he does this for free, & I agree some of the releases are excellent, & Im sure he is now bizzy updating it to 2.3.4 & I know that when a new release comes out I know I will give it a try & hopefully it will be as good as back to 2.5 standards & greatness....

I never did understand the nightlies for a fee. I mean, they all got rolled up into a free version of the ROM eventually, you just needed to wait a week or two ... or three
But since I own the D1 and there are so many new phones/pads with much more capacity to exploit, I can't imagine many good developers hanging tight and supporting their older platforms forever. They've moved on, at least that's how it appears to me, and maybe they will have an opportunity to make some money in the future with what they've learned to date. I'm just not going to spend much $$ jazzing up a phone that isn't being supported by the manufacturer any more and I doubt the developers are going to spend much time either.
I just put 2.5 back on, with a solid kernel and I'm trying to tweak the look with a theme and some metamorph files. This was the last stable (on my droid anyway) rom and I like the customization it provides. And, I have all that was broke from 3.0 on working again. Still hate the "Emergency Calls Only" on the lock screen though.
Going back to stock???...seriously??? While you're at it, whip out those 8-tracks and platforms. C'mon. These devs deserve massive props. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that a Froyo ROM will be the most stable. But Gingerbread ROMs are almost as good and you're running the latest-n-greatest...ultimate bragging rights. Android 2.3.4 on an OG Droid!!! It's crazy. Cyanogen is a good baseline, but Liquid is the ultimate dev and his ROM support is second to NONE. So put the crack pipe down and don't give up just yet...there's a ROM with your name on it.
ROM: Simply Stunning 5.4
RECOVERY: RZRecovery 2.0.3
RIDE: 2008 GSX1300R, Yosh'd out, 197bhp
Yes I would def agree about Liquid, its what I am currently running & so far it has been very impressive, both Liquid & Chevy's ran exceptionally well on my droid, its a toss up between the two.
I want to clarify something... At no time have I said anything derogatory about ANY of the Dev's. The work that they put in has been nothing short of amazing.
My problem with using ROM's and Kernal's is that my OG Droid MUST be a phone 1st. My work isn't going to give a darn why I didn't answer the call...only that I did not pick up. I can put up with the App problems, LP Lag, App crashes, and even the battery issues to a certain extent. But the Phone MUST WORK!!
I honestly believe that most of the problems I am having are due to the OG Droid, not the ROM's. We are trying to cram too much into a 1st generation phone. This is not the Dev's fault. From what I am reading, the Gb Rom's are doing fantastic things on the newer phones.
As the title of my original post states..."Sorry to say goodbye" and I mean it. I was forced into the decision I made by job requirements. Nothing more.
UD - You ROCK!!
Samsung Galaxy S4 - Stock
To anyone wondering what happened to UD including myself, the Dev is from the Memphis, TN area which I got from his last post on Facebook. I'm not sure exactly where though but it appears that the area has been hit hard by storms. There has been major flooding and evacuations. At least 300 homes were flooded. With this information, I'm thinking UD has more important issues to deal with and probably does not have the time or maybe even a way to give us an update. Lets just all hope he is OK and eventually he can resume work on UD.
