    I'm sick and tired of the last two roms from sholes and droidmod always force closing and locking up.

    Chevy's 2.02 is Simply Stunning!! It runs on my Droid flawlessly. I highly recommend it. Go to the hack sections/Chevy's section. He is the most responsive dev I've ever encountered.

    I'm running a beta test version of a 2.1 ese53 rom that AdamZ is working on. Its running very well. Only issue so far after a full day is wifi tether is broken. Other than that its perfect.

    Yes, to the OP:

    I'm telling that this ROM that thebowers linked you to, is the ONLY way to go for a true built ROM thats built from scratch, as far as 2.1 ROMs. Chevy's is nice too...

    But until DroidMod updates, this is the best right now IMO. And I love DroidMod. Can't wait to see what they come out with next

    LOL, umm, then if you flash to one you like and works, I am pretty sure updates are optional....c'mon, he is doing an amazing job, you don't want to update, just don't..for me, his stuff has been flawless, fast, stable and NEW.

    good luck with whatever you choose though

    Sholes/DroidMod never gave me trouble. Were you using the 2.1 launcher? That has been a problem regardless of the ROM.

    Pete's BB is excellent. Improvements are nothing to complain about. It isn't necessary to wipe data between each one, so there's no reason to be losing your apps and homescreen arrangements.

    We could debate about which rom is better and still get nowhere. This is why there is options and opinions.

    Yes Koush has a 2.1 launcher that has zero issues. Whether it be in landscape or not. 180 rotation of the screen. Cyanogen mods are

    I can vouch for the stability and speed of BB. Turned my Droid into a new phone. I'm still on v7 as it's very stable and don't really see the need to update to v8 at this point. Maybe when v9 hits i'll take the plunge :)
