    Why? Liquid is where it's at man. 1.7 is the best Rom I've ever tried hands down. More people need to respect Liquid and his work. I'm blown away at how fast it is and how responsive it is. First custom Rom to run 2.2.1...source built...why so many people like BB is beyond me. I tried it and it was a huge disappointment for me personally.

    I loved running LFY, but my phone didnt. I tried matching it up with several different kernels, but I still couldnt get more than 7 hours out of a charge. Its all good, even better reason to have so many developers.

    FRG83 is a Nexus One thing, there hasn't been an FRG83 Motorola Droid. Even Cyanogen isn't updating the build of the Droid to FRG83 as the Motorola Droid proper build id is still FRG22D.

    Current/latest is still FRG22D (proprietary files) with Froyo 2.2.1 source files.

    every droid is different my man. for me every built from source has some kind of problem on my phone. the only rom that was built from source worked and had perfect battery life was ultimate droid from black droid mod. slayher 900 kernel worked fine for me n it was smooth as butter.

    I tried LFY 1.7 last night and I just didn't like the themes much. I tried the smoked theme and my % on the battery icon was doubled, like it said it twice. When I changed the color under the liquid menu it would change the front one to the color I picked and the second one behind it would still be white. I think that's called anti aliasing? Anyway I felt like a few other things were copied from other roms. Like the power control widget looked like it was themed with Black and Bold, while the Facebook widget and Google search widget had no theme at all. That's a deal breaker for me and yes I wiped 3 times before installing. After a few hours of playing around I Nandroided back to BBv.5 with smoked glass, hard to beat IMHO.

    FRG83's main thing is it closes the Universal ANDRoot loophole.

    guys, FRG83 is NEXUS, NOT DROID! only things that would have changed between them and us would have been gapps, which shadow has updated to the latest ;)

    Ah, but when it comes to build numbers remember, most geeks are guys. The bigger the number the more manly some of us feel. ;)

    Thanks. I needed a name and this one popped into my head one day. Extra points if you get the reference. :D

    Builds are device specific, I have been curious as to why people associate a Nexus One build (FRG83) with the Motorola Droid? Source is named (Eclair, Froyo, etc..) and has a version number 2.0.1, 2.1, 2.1-update1, 2.2 and now 2.2.1. Why are people associating a build number with the OS version?

    Current Source OS is Froyo 2.2.1
    Current build for the Motorola Droid is FRG22D
    Current build for the Nexus One is FRG83

    I think my next ROM is just going to be build ZZZ99Z and let's see someone top that! :)
