    Been running both over the past couple days. Kinda liking UD better. Custom fonts, better batt life and no random reboots so far. I Was just wondering what issues you all have been seeing w/ both ROMs. Thx

    Any particular reason? CM7 is a tight rom but UD seems smoother

    There was a whole "issue" back 8-9 months ago about Black Droid using some of CM's work without giving credit. It got really, really nasty. BD gives credit now, but old animosities linger. I was one of the "haters" but have since moved on and only want to use what works for ME (not interested in all the drama). I use UD a lot now simply because it works on my phone and I like it's themeing better. CM is probably the best roms available and you absolutely can not go wrong by using it. Koush and his team are top notch and always leading the way. Again, for me it's a themeing issue. I use the one that I can enjoy looking at daily.

    Good luck.

    Wow. Thanks for all the info. What a trip. Ego battles mean little to me. Esp over a cell phone ROM but everyone has their thing i guess eh? I like both ROMs and I too like the themes better with UD.

    +1. CM is the King of the roms. I've used em all, but I always end up back on CM. I have run it on G1, MT3G, Droid, and Droid Inc.

    Its smooth, has the best built-in features, and has great battery life. Not to mention the constant work being done via the nightlies.

    CM has had the best Donut, Eclair, Froyo, and Gingerbread roms so far.

    +1, not to mention the CM developers are the best developer team out imo. I really wasn't going to elaborate on the back story between CM and UD. No sense beating a dead horse

    I didn't quote your links because the story is dead and tired!
    Yes Kang-gate was a big deal in the android dev community, but it isn't what keeps me from using UD... UD just isn't as smooth as CM. IMO.

    And UD's battery life isn't as good as CM's. That's a fact, not my opinion.

    UD has forever been the best... People can complain about the past but that doesnt change the fact that BD has been working his butt off on an amazing ROM that will beat them all in its final version...

    Yes. UD 3.0 eats my batteries. CM 7 has extended my battery by over an hour vs stock 2.2!

    For real? How long u say it lasts? I tested UD and CM and got an extra 4 hours with UD wit stock kernals. I had to flash Tiamat 2.2.1 just to get CM to last as long as UD...

    Just a quick note here. Please don't beat a dead horse. Discuss the differences in the ROMs without the past drama or the thread will be shut down.

    I don't like threads like these because they will ALWAYS lead to arguments. You just need to try out the different Rom's and see what ones serve you best. Certain Rom's run differently on different phones so it's all really a matter of opinion. No one can truly state that one Rom is better than another. It's fine to think so but keep in mind all the other dev's out there work their butt's off too and it might be a bit offensive when you claim one Rom is way better than another. Just my two cents.

    I'm using a D1 not an incredible. I get about 9 hrs of moderate use at 800mhz. I got about 6! with UD. Heavy use is terrible for both. Probably 5 vs 4 hrs.
