    Well, not to toot my noob horn but I have hacked the crap outta my phone thanks to your suggestions and brainless tutorials. Loving the smoked glass rom the best with its default 800mhz and 2.1 firmware. Just wondering what other roms out there you all consider better or just like in general. Happy rootin :icon_ devil:

    I checked out sholes, it's got some nice features but way too much lag, hopefully that gets resolved in the long run as there's a lot of potential there.

    Right now I am using Bugless Beast 0.8.3 and I love it, it's fast, gives me all the features I want, and just works, overclocked to 800MHZ as well.

    I was thinking about starting a thread like this. The information on the ROMS are so scattered it's hard to know whats out there and where to get in info.

    I've tried the 2.1 from the "2.1 the easy way thread". It was too laggy and glitchy for me. Last night I decided to try the "bugless Beast" and I have to day I'm very impressed with it. Very snappy and no force closes or anything. The only thing I've noticed it the my handsent sms doesn't show any contacts in it. If I try and create a new message there are no contacts shown. If I start type in their name they'll show up in the auto fill part. I still get messages and can respond to them. Other than that it's been a real nice ROM. I downloaded the sholes ROM but after reading some of the comments about it have decided not to try it. So far I'm loving the bugless beast and would recommend it.

    Right now I'm running Bugless Beauty 0.8.3, and it is awesome. and agent42o, the Bugless Beast is 0.7.1 I believe and the Bugless Beauty is the 0.8.3, so I wasn't really sure exactly which one you were referring to...I hear their both great, I just haven't tried the Beast yet, but since its a lower build #, I just figured it was an older version of the Bugless series or whatever, and so I went with the highest # version. But, I am not too clear on that because they just updated the Beast ROM like yesterday think? And its still 0.7.1? And it seems like people have been downloading that ROM like crazy the past couple days on droidforums....

    Smoked Glass is 2.0.1 based. But it is on my roster to try out today. :motdroidvert:
    I am currently using the AllDroid Community ROM and although the camera still doesn't work, it is the most stable 2.1 based ROM I have tried. I think it has a lot of potential and as soon as the camera is fixed it very well may be my ROM of choice. I tried the NexusDroid ROM and got lots of force closes and random reboots. The "Installing 2.1 the Easy Way" ROM was pretty good, but still had enough force closes and reboots to start "shopping" for another option.

    Honestly, I am not sure, heh, someone said that 0.8.3 had wifi tether and overclocking to 800mhz built in but when I installed that wasn't the case, in fact, the only real difference I notice is a bootanimation.

    both have 5 screens, milestone browser, updated media gallery and music player, as well as the smoked glass theme.

    So, I am a little confused by the build numbers and names.

    Thanks, I was just reading that on the alldroid forums, I wish more of those authors were here, as the general community here seems to be a lot more friendly, but oh well, what can ya do.

    Either way, both seem to work very well, they are both stable and fast, imo it's the best mod available at the moment, but I am curious to see what Sholes will become once all the kinks get worked out.
