    Hello all,

    I have the original droid and have used almost every Rom that has been made. I currently have Miui. i like it but Ive had it for so long i need a change. Is there anything else that is completely different from Miui or other Roms based on the stock android OS with just a different feel? i want something completely out of the box. I wish the sense was working but i doubt that will happen any time soon. Is there anything out there that i might not know of that i can flash my original Droid with?


    Thanks,

    Kdogg556

    I'll be honest, I'm right there with you, and, strangely enough, I've settled on MIUI for the time being. However, my favorite of the more "stock" type ROMs is Sourcery. It has a more stock feel than MIUI, but has some cool features that I hadn't seen on some of the others. I've tried LFY, Project Elite, Simply Stunning, Sapphire and UD. Of those PE and LFY are my favorites, but Sourcery is very cool and worth a look if you haven't tried it yet. Good luck!

    Yeah, I'm looking to the Motorola Xoom to be the next true cure for my boredom... with that, I may be able to wait for the first HTC dual core to get a new phone!

    Really,JJ? Come on now. I'm simply saying that the devs, as amazing as they all are, can only do so much with the limited hardware on the D1 and I'm ready for some more powerful equipment to see what they can do with that! The fact that I can't settle on one ROM is a tribute to how great they all are.

    As for hanging myself, I think I'll pass... Too much Android goodness to look forward to... Not to mention your next well-thought-out post! Try to be nice, eh?

    Hah, i love how people complain when they have a device (a PHONE might i remind you) that they are able to hack and change... and you say your getting bored??

    What about all those phones or mp3 players of the past that you couldnt even change a pixel on? You didnt hate them, you just accepted them as they were...

    You can always cure your boredom by learning to create your own ROM and then I'm sure supporting it would keep you from getting bored in the future. Just saying ...

    No, IcculusX is right - we as a society "suffer" from an abundance of technology, and tend to take for granted the marvelous toys we are blessed with. Boredom is not something we should be fighting, we're on the new frontier of cell phone technology and should be trying to contain our excitement.

    My two cents worth...

    I like this post. And through thinking what icculusX is saying does make sense. Although I find it difficult to be content when every two weeks a update is rolling out. We are being programmed to be bored when we should fight to be content!

    Hoorah!

    P.s but the meizu rom that zenulator is talking about seems interesting. Lol.

    Well I have to say these devices have been integral in my being able to have an os in the palm of my hand everywhere I go. It has inspired me to want to be able to manipulate these files and Roms etc between my PC and my device as well as communication highways for Social, business, entertainment uses. The possibilities are endless and to thoroughly know every aspect of windows, android, linux, java, etc is an integral part of absolute integration. Lol So I am in the process of schooling myself in all these areas and would like to learn how to speak the language of the devs as spoken before we are the pioneers of a brand new frontier.
