    Ive tried the ZapX 2.4 and liked it a lot. No issues @ all that I noticed, No FCs, it was fast everything worked well and smooth. But I dont see much in the way of info from the forums about his ROMs and not sure why???

    I've been here for a little while now and never even heard of Drew Garen 0.o. I have heard of the R2D2 Remix, because I know there is one for D2 (not able to be used on D2 R2D2).

    Maybe you should dig in and find out the info for DF? BROWNIE POINTS! lol

    You can always check out our sister site Droid X Forum

    I've spoken to drew over there on several occasions so I know he's around.

    The only thing keeping me from these ROMs is the fact that the newer releases come pre-themed. I think it should be up to the end user to do so. At least that's how the new Bazinga releases are.

    I barely see any posts anywhere about this ROM. I guess it must have VERY few issues? Anyways... Installing LexLite 1.6. Sweet boot animation, nice transitions. Still just signing in to Google. Getting hot reboots???



    edit: SBF'ing because I did something funny during install. Retrying as soon as i get this done :p

    I used Drew's zapx bazinga and was happy with it. His docs are great for upgrading.

    I just changed a couple weeks ago to try something different.

    I have been using the ZapX BAZINGA series exclusively for some time. I am on ZapX BAZINGA 2.4 now and love it. Smooth, fast and enough blur that I can use corporate mail, which is a must.

    They do come pre-themed, and I liked it better than the themes I had. Even then, I could always change elements using Metamorph if I wanted it. Same thing with other enclosed programs. I like ^3 better as a music player than Music Mod, for example. No problem.

    I am eagerly awaiting ZapX BAZINGA 2.5 and the GingerBread flavor as well. And Drew has been very responsive, and has everything on his site to get you out of trouble....

    I was reading up on these since your post and it says on his posts that you have to be running the .340 leak? It said that SOME OTA .340 updates seem to work and some .315 seem to work but couldn't guarantee anything. I think I will wait for a future update before deciding to jump on trying these. Too much risk.

    OTA .340 worked fine for me too. You NEED to start with stock ROM to get this to work properly though. Great ROM though.

    Well Hey guys since I am DrewGaren I can help you out a bit. First off I want to thank you for all the kind words that you guys have all said about my roms and my responsiveness back to users. I always try to put a quality of work into my roms, and if some body finds something wrong I usually go about fixing it pretty fast. I like to stay in touch with users and having a smaller community has allowed me to do so though I encouraged as many users out there to try my roms and use them. I update them often my site and communicate a lot through there, email and twitter with users.

    As for a little Q and A:

    Prethemed Roms: The reason my roms are prethemed is because it gives them more speed from the beginning installation rather then switching files out. However currently I am in the process of making selected themes that will be compatible with my roms and users will be able to download them from my site and install them by themselves. These themes will generally be the themes you see around but mixed up a little and tweaked with some of my theming in them.

    What am I working on right now? I have had Gingerbread running, but I started to redo the build and now I'm having trouble so I don't know how long thats going to take. In the mean time someone suggested an Ironman Rom, so I have that coming out soon. I have a HTC Sense rom I'm working on. I'm also working on something super secret that's untitled and hopefully will blow your mind.

    Your probably wondering why I don't ever post my rom info on here or other forums?
    Well to be honest I'm in Rom Manager, all you have to do is search google for DrewGaren or just one of my roms. I used to post in here all the time but it became a hassle to start checking up daily and almost hourly on whats going on. I have a website designed for users for anything they could possibly need regarding the Droid X and my roms. I'm even starting nook color development and getting on board with the idroid project for ipad.

    Last but not least check out my website here Drewgaren.com

    How exactly would you plan on running an HTC Sense Rom?

    Sense requires a special kernel, and RIL re-working.

    Curious, is all.

    I used ZapX Bazinga for a while too and had almost no issues. Its a great ROM. Just as an FYI, First series of BigDX Serenity theme works on Bazinga 2.4.

    Remember! It the FIRST SERIES OF SERENITY THEME.
