    I'm disappointed in the Quadrant scores so far- I'll explain. Running BB .5 and above (up to .6.2.1), as well as UD 2.5, my scores ranged from ~1250 to a high of 1580 (I specifically remember the 1580 because I thought it was incredible). I'm using, and continue to use with this GB stock 2.3.2, P3's 1100 LV 7-slot (125-1100) kernel.

    While running UD 2.5, an updated version of Quadrant came out (1.1.7?). According to the update notes, it was supposed to fix GB issues. When I installed it in UD 2.5, suddenly my Droid seemed to slow down, and Quadrant scores dropped to between 1000 & 1200. Uninstalling Quadrant didn't seem to fix sluggishness, so I restored a backup and reverted to previous version of Quadrant. Old higher scores returned and performance was snappier again.

    When I installed 2.3.2 GB, I ran the older version of Quadrant and graphics screens looked funky then the app froze & force closed. So I installed the updated version, and scores have ranged from mid 800's to around 1050. Can't tell yet if overall performance has suffered but I'm definitely disappointed in Quadrant scores, and am beginning to think that Quadrant is no longer reliable. A friend of mine thinks I am too obsessive about Quadrant scores- perhaps he is right. LOL

    Unlike Froyo, I think Gingerbread is less focused on speed. Pete said it was more CPU intensive, that immediately says it'll run slower.

    I haven't tried the Pete's stock version, but I've installed UD 3 and a CM7 nightly, which, unsurprisingly, both recieved about the same score, 800something.

    A Bugless version will likely speed things up, but I wouldn't expect froyo level scores with GB.

    thats crazy! an update slows things down? that doesn't make any sense

    but in my experience with roms and all things droid, if it wasnt made SPECIFICALLY to be run on your device, its gonna be crap

    hope this isnt the case for gingerbread

    The update adds more. I don't actually know all the changes, but additional features and graphical improvements can come at a cost. And yeah, since our device isn't intended to run GB, they aren't concerned with a little slowness. I'm assuming the newer devices with the 1ghz processors aren't going to have as much of a problem.

    But even on faster devices "MORE cpu intensive" will be just that, more intensive. Even a small impact, I would consider a big deal, what specifically is gingerbread supposed to improve on if not speed?

    Good question. I know it was supposed to give a more uniform feel to the UI, and the screen off animation, but if your someone that likes themes on their phone, I almost don't really see the point in gingerbread.

    If you guys are getting weak quadrant scores(I myself don't rely on) may I suggest LGB 1.2. At 1.0ghz ULV(stock kernel) I get a quadrant score of 1100-1350. Used to be a Bugless ROM fan myself, Pete does some great work but i've been more than happy with LGB. Give it a try, I know every phone is different but it's definitely worth a look.

    With the 1GHz kernel that Pete recommended, I'm getting 1300+... about the same that I was getting with BB 0.6.2. I'm not sure about battery life yet since I've only been running it for about a day and a half.

    Maybe I'll give the kernel Pete recommended a try. But if I'm not mistaken, it's a Slayher kernel, and although they have performed VERY well on my phone (highest Quadrant scores I've ever recorded, if that even matters anymore), at least for me, they got very hot, and battery life was horrible (tried a few different ones).

    I've been running this ROM for a little more than 24 hours with P3 Droid's LV 7-slot 1100
    (125-1100 MHz), and so far battery life is impressive. My Droid's been unplugged for 7 hours with heavy usage; ie, lots of surfing, with wifi turned on for about 2 hours (used it for surfing for a half hour or so then forgot it was on LOL), a few texts, and tested navigation for about a half hour while out and about today. Plugging it back in now with battery at 40%. Not bad in my experience.

    Side note and a bit off topic (sorry) but I had to make the observation. I'm typing this on my phone and while doing so, performance has slowed tremendously- typing on either GB or real keyboard is extremely sluggish. I have never experienced this before. I'll mention it in the bug thread.
