    If so: What Phone
    What Rom
    What Theme
    What Kernel

    I waited for the Froyo update
    and then I rooted my: Droid 1
    Rom: Shadow Rom v0.01 Stable build
    (it's a port from the CyanogenMod Rom V6 source code)
    Theme: Simple Dark Red
    Kernel: SlayHer

    Shadow Rom has a lot of features. You can change the color on your notification bar and drop down window (and text). You also get access to Spare Parts Settings. Plus you have the option of blocking ads, adjust boot animation settings, lock screen music control, allow install of new apps to s.d. card etc. etc. etc.
    I like it a little better than CyanogenMod 6 because it has a few more features.
    I've been on Cyanogen 6, Shadow Rom, ChevyNo 1-Simply Stunning, and SlayHer's Liquid Frozen Yogurt.

    What Roms, and Themes are you all running and what do you like about them?

    Droid 1....p3droid lv1250 kernel....UD8.0 with my Cold Fusion theme.

    I like the customization ability with UD.

    Install/remove built apps...block ads...change bootanimations...change fonts all with the click of a button.

    Music toggle controls....

    And not to mention his thing flies on my phone...

    Rooted, running ShadowRom with ColdFusion theme and the Chevy LV 1.25 kernel.

    I like the bit of customizability I have in Shadow, but would like more. I really like the lockscreen music controls.

    I like the looks of the ColdFusion theme but wish it would actually install/overwrite FB and Twitter clients (every time I delete them via Root Manager, they get reinstalled automatically before I can put the ColdFusion versions in). I also wish it could automagically theme other applications, but yay for wishes.

    My droid is super stable, super fast, and has awesome battery life with this ROM, Kernel, and the right settings in SetCPU.

    I'm considering trying Chevy's SS 4.8 when it lands. We'll see. I'm lazy by nature so there are going to have to be compelling features for me to do the setup work again.

    I wish I knew what all this meant. my friend rooted my phone. He said I use bugless beast 0.4 - although I have no idea what this means.

    dolpns13 - I highly suggest that you either ask your friend to teach you about it or read some info on this website about recovery, ROMs, kernels, and such. There are a lot of fans of BB but personally I think it is very outdated and one of the ROMs with the least options and hacks. I suggest CM or UD. Read around...

    I was rooted until yesterday on my X. Until the phone, started freezing and crashing all the time...Did a factory reset, which took almost 12 hours to activate my phone? Don't know if it was the network or the phone...will not go through that again.

    Hoping for the release of 2.2, but it looks like a dud as well....Boo verizon!!!

    I guess 2.2 hasnt been released to everyone? I am rooted and get updates for 2.2 like once every couple weeks. I dont want this update but still have to go through the install process to get the notification to go away. Clockwork wont let it install thankfully.

    Actually, this poses another question, is there a way to stop the notifications? Maybe I should call motorola or verizon and tell them to stop sending it to me.

    Rooted my OG Droid1 in early January thanks to the help of some really nice people here, especially Math3w who I know probably won't read this now that he owns an ipad(lol with me if you know what I'm talking about)

    Rom: Everything started with Pete's bugless beauty>Beast>Then I went on a flash binge and everything up until about 2 months ago is a blur, seriously, many roms, many themes. Then I rolled stock for a while due to the Darke Edge UI (and loved it), and now I have Saphire(Awesome) with Bgills wickedly awesome Incognito theme.

    As far as kernels, I can remember when running @ 800mhz was considered pushing the limits, and it would run HOT at 800 too. I've always had my best luck with adamz and p3droids kernels although I've used chevy's quite a bit. Right now I have p3droids 1000LV and have actually removed temp monitor from my phone because I can't remember the last time my felt hot(other than when I have some serious wifi tethering going on)

    Sorry if I got carried away, I've had a lot of fun with my droid over the past 9 months, lol

    If so: What Phone
    What Rom
    What Theme
    What Kernel

    1.Droid X
    2.None
    3.Stock

    Even though I am rooted I'm still studying these things to make sure I get it right.
