    Hey guys I've just recently rooted my phone and am currently running Pete's stock 2.1 rooted with Chevy's 1ghz Kernel and CyanogenMod ROM 5.6.2.

    I wanted to know what is everyone using and which they prefer and why? The setup i'm currently using is very stable and i'm happy with it, but i'm wondering if there is anything else i'm missing from the others?

    For example how do i get WIFI tethering? I currently have PDANET and that works, but how do i WIFI tether?

    Also how can i get themse for my phone like full desktop themes where it changes your icons and wallpapers etc... Anyone know any cool stuff i can do with my phone now that i'm rooted? The only thing i'm doing different is that i have SETCPU app and over clocked my phone. Originally that was the point to just overlock it, but now that i'm starting to get used to this I feel like I would like to customize and explore more. Any comments and suggestions will be appreciated, thank you!

    The very stable and happyness is why I'm using what I am and I haven't bounced around so much I suppose. the included feature list is another. wifi-tether and overclockable kernel was included....just a little convenience as those things aren't so hard to add, as you'll see below:

    android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code just install the apk and there you go.

    downloaded the wifi .apk file and installed it on my droid.. I paired my computer with the phone, but having trouble getting it to work. That video is not to helpful because it's running win xp and i'm running win7. Do you know how to hook up wifi tether with win7?

    I've been with JRummy's Remix CyanMod, CyanogenMod 5.0.6.2 ever since I first rooted. I absolutely love this rom and dont see myself switching anytime soon.

    It's not a stock looking rom. Its themed. He's got a red, blue, green, and cyan colored one. And he's also got a stock looking one as well.

    I just switched to Bugless Beast V1 a couple days ago from UD10 and I coudlnt be happier.
    My phone has never run this smooth and FAST.

    BB V1
    1Ghz Kernel
    NexMod theme

    I've run Cyan, UD and previous versions of BB.
    This is by far the smoothest most stable ROM I've had on my phone yet.

    One more question, when i download a ROM i'm suppose to back up my current ROM i already know that, but I'm also suppose to "WIPE CURRENT CACHE DATA" right? When i do that will I lose all my apps? Or will i continue to have everything I previously had?

    Sorry not to put all my questions in one post, but i just thought of them as i was playing with my phone.

    If for some reason I have an issue using ROM MANAGER how do i restore my phone back to the previous back up?

    Redrum 1.3 is the most stable for me. I use it on my Droid for work, and it has never let me down :)

    I don't see that on ROM MANAGER is this something I need to install manually?

    Also do i need to install the BASEBAND for each rom i install when switching to another ROM?
