    I want CM7 on my Thunderbolt bad.. sorry if I got people excited by the open sounding subject ;-)
    From what I've read on cyanogenmod forums slayer and a few others have really been busting a$$ trying to get us a release... Now that we have the kernel from HTC I'm guessing it wont be long but the wait is killing me.. anyone else have any inside knowledge regarding the progress? Anyway that's my blab for the day.. I'm loving my TBolt so far.. its a nice step up from my OG Droid (great phone however)

    Cyanogen is just a very sturdy rom (IMO).. CM7 is a gingerbread 2.3 android that has a lot of great features such as themes with the T-Mobile theme engine.. there is the power manager built into the notification pull down.. for me its all about the customization .. look and feel of the rom.. CM is built from the ground up rather than just a "tweaked" or "themed" version of the basic aosp (stock android) which means everything flows nicely because it is made to work.. ... All in all ROM choice is purely personal preference.. play with all of them and see which one you like.. my top 3 would be (assuming they make of to TBolt) CM, UltimateDroid, and MIUI

    I've always viewed CM and UD as sort of good and evil twins... I do really like them both but I have personally had better luck with CM.. while UD is jam packed with badassdness and cool theming/styling I feel like CM (the good twin) is more basic and simple... more of a pure root form..

    I will try both for sure... I am also very excited about a MIUI ROM for the Tbolt

    Once I get back into the rooting thing with this phone I will try them both, but honestly I love Sense; the widgets, the smoothness, the syncing with fb and google the only thing I dont like about Sense is the way the App drawer opens, but I have everything set up in Miui like folders anyways so I never use it...

    Overall Im super pumped about the future of the Phone with all these Roms poppin out already...

    Agreed! Each rom is unique and preferred differently by all users alike. CM and UD hands down they both hold the crown

    Dont get me wrong. Im not bad mouthing CM at all. It just has NEVER ran well for me on my OG, while UD ran like a beast. For all I know CM will run well on my TB and UD wont. But I hope not. I really enjoy the level of customization available in UD right out of the gate.

    ^ personally I'm holding out hope for a project elite ROM for the tbolts as well as keeping an eye on Chevy's stock gb build.

    I have CM7 on my droid now as my TBolt is in the mail for tomorrow. Would love to have CM7 to put on it, but would really love to see somebody pick up the sapphire ROM and bring it up to date and to the TBolt. However I do still look forward to playing with all the custom ROMs out already

    one thing ive found about what we have thus far for TB Roms is they are either stock android themed.. or (imo) over the top "gaudy" themes.. I like my roms super clean but still highly custom :)
