    I keep flashing back and forth between these two and can't decide which I want to keep. Which one do you guys prefer and why?

    I'm doing the same thing..:)...I have stuck with CM though because I can't keep reading through all that hooplah on BD threads:icon_evil:..No seriously.... I like them both, I think BD ROMS are a little more stable for my Droid, but I like the fact that Koush is doing everything from source, I've decided to stick with CM...I'm still on 5.0.5 though and couldn't be happier:) I can't and will not commit....Def. Clockwork Recovery though..

    Do your keyboard lights still work? I tried installing this theme on an older build and it broke my keyboard lights and auto backlight.

    All hardware works as it should, now. Not trying to diminish anyone's work, but CM has a feature nobody else has that I use all the time--skipping tracks via the volume button.

    I use BD 7.8.. I tried CM but could not find a kernel that over clocked, though I did not try hard. I have been on BD for a while now and just stuck with it. I took some things I liked from CM and put them on the BD.UD rom.

    I have not had luck in upgrading to UD8 though. Maybe I will do that today.

    I just like the fact that CM has features that no other roms has. Then from that you can apply the many themes for CM. Overall it is a personal thing, so make the choice on your own needs and likes.

    I am a long time BD user on 8.1.1 now. I was just wondering out of curiosity what features does CM have that others dont? Also I like themes, and thats the one part I want BD to really push on with, more theme options. KLove the dark look tho. Fantastic roms BD makes, been so hooked since 6.5!

    Some features that I use and there may be more. LEDS all the time. You won't get that unless you are still on 2.01. Intergrated USB tether. It's what I use since I don't have a Wifi card in my computer. 360, 270 screen rotation. Not that great but fun to play a trick on some one. One that adrynalyne already stated is the volume controls can be used even when the phone is locked.

    CM when holding the power button you you can reboot along with airplane mode and power off the droid. Volume button to skip tracks , 270 /360 rotation ,

    I loaded up a BD version once and didn't care for the extra crap he put with it I flashed back to Simply Stunning with the blink of an eye. and from SS I am on Koush's Cyanogen and haven't looked back since

    While the screen is off/phone is locked, hold the volume button down. It will skip to the next track.

    With Cyanogenmod you can't do ##PROGRAM with blackdroid you could. thats because Cyanogenmod is not a true droid ROM. I wish cyanogemod would fix that

    verizon motorola droid user flashed to metro
