    It's about that time again! What's your favorite D2 ROM, and why?

    My favorite ROM currently is CM7 due to having a decent Galaxy S theme, and it's currently supported very well.

    I have taken a recent liking to the new liquid rom. Build off of cyan, but better battery in my experiences. Liberty is def #2

    I've been running Apex RC2 and really like it. Not a whole lot of customization built in like other roms, but it runs really fast and has good battery life - that's the whole idea of this rom. And you can customize it, just takes a little extra effort if you choose. The really good news is how stable it is as a release candidate - plus everything works - so looking forward to the final release!

    The problem I found with Apex is the lack of customization. There are virtually no themes available, and while it was fast, I'm willing to give up a little bit of speed to make the UI look good.

    Yea I can understand that. I go through phases, and right now I just want a fast, reliable phone. I think once CM7 gets the bugs worked out I'll be back on the tinkering train. The tinkering train? That sounds wrong...lol.

    CM7 is very stable right now. It's still having trouble with battery life, but I'm able to get a full day out of it now, with data enabled.

    I'm definitely loving having all the different ROM options for the D2, though. The last thing I want is for a developer to feel left out because their ROM isn't the chosen ROM. The only ROM I don't use is Liberty, but it has a huge userbase without me.

    Cm7 is pretty stable but battery life isn't the best, but the theme chooser is just awesome. Plus, its wicked fast without overclocking.

    We should see a miui rom and possibly a few more aosp roms. Still with the locked bootloader we are stuck with the moto froyo kernal.

    CM7 is my fav. right now...I actually enjoy my d2 again.

    CM7 for now. Battery isn't the best but its worth it for all the little advantages. When Justice hits I'll try that, and when/if MIUI hits(I'm sure it will, just a matter of time), I'm switching to that. I love MIUI

    TBH, you are the first person I've seen with a reboot issue on CM7. Did you do a clean install?

    I'm really liking the new Liquid GB. Liberty is right up there since I have been using it since it came out for the D2. Love the theme chooser.
    Tried MIUI once on my OG Droid and was not impressed.

    I like ZombieStomped the best. It doesn't have the most customizaiton, but it also doesn't need it. With the built in undervolting, the interactiveX governor, and Imoseyon tweaks built in, it's stable, fast, and the battery lasts forever.

    i would have to say that i like CM7. super fast and reliable, just not impressed with the battery life yet. for the moment im running Liberty GB has the been the best for me although i was impressed with Apex, however like UrbanBounca im willing to give up some speed for a better UI.

    I am loving Liberty GB .8, but I still have issues with data. It will randomly refuse to pull data over 3G, which drives me nuts. Doesn't happen often, but when it does, it always seems to happen at the worst possible times...

    In defense of Liberty though, I have had this problem with all of the GB-based roms, including the stock moto leak...

    Looking forward to trying out CM7 when I have the time to flash it, but the battery life does worry me... Nothing worse than having a dead battery when you need it the most.

    Um...CM7 is by far my favorite rom out there and i've tried them all. Themes with one click (no need for cw), screaming fast, decent battery, endless customization (I mean it's crazy), smooth and snappy. Nightlies actually being released um....nightly as opposed to a once a month. Use of 2nd init to boot off the froyo kernel, android 2.3.4. The list goes on.

    I know I have an X, but my favorite ROM is CM7. I have tried pretty much all of them. I have also had random reboots with it, but it was on nightly 33. Nightly 34 seems to be doing better.

    I still have a soft spot for Apex though. The most stable ROM out there with insane battery life. The Revo theme was nice for it.

    I love Apex RC 2, that's what I'm running right now. It's like I have my Droid 1 again but it's on crack lol, the speed is crazy fast and the battery lasts forever.
    I am tempted to give Cyanogen Mod 7 a try tho, because I do like to be able to theme and tweak my phone , if it didn't require the .sbf back to froyo, I probably would've given it a go by now. I've sbf'ed back to froyo before, I'm just lazy and don't really feel like doing it again.
