    my life is so boring the most exciting thing I do, or mean I did, was through my droid one. (Does OG by the way stands for "old girl?"] However, every custom ROM I tried, and I mean everyone, ended up freezing my phone. Oftentimes when I was waiting on a key phone call.

    So I am back to the unrooted, no excitement, golf, boring smart phone existence.I have an upgrade coming up next month, thinking about the Motorola Bionic but the more I read it sounds like the Samsung galaxy 2S is the way to go.

    Truly loved the rooted custom ROMs when they were working. But a frozen phone reminded me too much of college girlfriends. No matter what button you touched...

    ciao,

    OG= Original Gangster, at least thats what I know it as

    Sucks that you couldn't find a custom rom to play nice w/ your phone. BTW, were you using gingerbread roms or froyo roms? I tried most of the gb roms and they were nothing but headaches. I am running Droid Concepts as my dd rom and it is great. I'm pretty sure its the only froyo rom that is still being worked on. Might want to give that a shot of you haven't already.

    thanks for the reply. Old gangster, hot? Pretty cool. I think I will try the one you recommended and see what happens. Makes me feel like I am living life on the edge!

    Much appreciated.

    Your recommendation of Droid Concepts caused me to root again. I'm going to try it. I will let you know. I may have to go into some sort of rehab program with this addiction I have for custom ROMs!

    Thanks,

    I just put Simply Stunning 4.96(froyo) on my phone and it's literally like a new phone now. There's no lag whatsoever. I keep it at 700 Mhz instead of the 1Ghz and it's still quick to respond.

    Any chance you could direct me to where I could find 4.96?

    I googled it and it appears every link is no longer working.

    Thanks,

    Are you wiping your data and cache before you flash? Not doing that is the only thing I can think of that would cause the problems you're having.

    I just switched from BB v0.6 to PE 6.5 and it's night and day difference. Like a brand new phone. Snappy and fast. Give it a try!!
