    Just follow the instructions and don't forget to make a backup first. Everything should go just fine. Im a little new to the dx and I didn't have any problems switching between the two.

    Except that he wants to try DS. If you can do Liberty, you can do DS.

    I tried the Liberty rom for a couple of days and couldn't get rid of it quick enough. Terrible battery life, lots of fc's and glitchy as all get out. Overhyped imho, but it seems that a lot of people like it. Personally, I love darkslide and always seem to come back to it and keep it for the longest. Just keep in mind that a lot of it is about personal taste and needs. For me, it's been the most stable, gives me plenty of battery life while I'm at work (I'm a painter and am not usually sitting near an outlet during the day and it lasts for me.) I worked eleven hours straight the other day, was on the phone, texted some, used maps and radar a couple of times, and listened to pandora and tune in radio a good portion of the day and still had around forty percent on my stock (not extended) battery at the end of the day. That's a win in my book any day of the week.

    Hey all thanks for the advice everyone I flashed over to darkslide non blur. I can see this rom is very snappy. I am really enjoying this so far.

    I'm running the pre rooted leaked version of gingerbread on my Dx. Will I have to reinstall 2.2.1 before I flash to darkslide?

    @ icenyne

    Yes, you'll need to sbf back. Gb is a different build. Darkslide (which I'm running), is built from froyo.

    Right on, I haven't ventured over to gb just yet. Waiting a bit to make sure most of the kinks are worked out first. Probably will by next week.
