    Can I add to the question?

    Which one is best for performance? Has the least processes running the in background?

    My OG Droid is rooted, and it's running a low voltage kernel at 1000mhz, but it's slow as crap because everytime I pull u the task manager I have 30MB of free space and 15-20 phantom apps services running. Any ROMs out there that will keep these killed unless I actually boot up the apps, and keep her running fast?

    SS 5.4 W chevyno1 kernels

    Anyone know why I have ss5.4 with chevyno1 tools and cyanogenmod settings?

    Either way i found I had to set the cpu speed in both chevy tools and cyanogenmod settings for them to take effect.

    Sourcery. no question. I'm not sure, but I think it might be the only late Froyo rom that was exclusively for the Droid 1.

    +1 for Sourcery, awesome Froyo Rom with not lag or issues. Many features available and many theme options.

    B/c Chevy switched to CyanogenMod source instead of AOSP.

    Chevy SS 5.4 w chevy 1.2ghz LV with interactive Gov

    I have a droid 2 extended batt so I am not concerned with batt life(I prob wouldn't use this kernel with stock battery).

    The trick for me to keep a rom blazing fast is to reflash every few weeks and clear cache often.

    Give Sourcery a try, since its the most recent Froyo and doesn't have motoblur on its snappy and efficient.

    I tried many Gingerbread ROMs and eventually went back to Sourcery, since it is the best Froyo ROM for my phone.

    While I think this thread is a contradiction to the use of this forum (or at least the Custom section), I find myself truly bored here on a Sunday night and so I'll throw my 2 cents in.

    Back before GB was out I use to run Chevy's SS a lot. However, since GB was released and Peter Alfonso has been doing his GPA releases I have been running those instead. Currently I am running GPA17 beta? (it's v 2.3.5) and I run Chevy's lv 1ghz kernel. I use to run Peter Alfonso's kernels but the combo of this v2.3.5 and chevy's kernel is giving me absolutely great performance as well as better battery from what I can tell.

    I've seen so many threads with this question. The one thing I've learned is that its all personal preference. Us D1 users are really lucky because of all the amazing roms we have! I've tried almost all of them, and what I like is different then what the next guy likes.

    To answer the question, I think SS 5.4 is the best aosp based rom, but I also like miui.us gingerbread because its so different than any other rom out there.
