    I did the exact same thing. I was with UD from 5.5 to the 10 update and while I loved the rom, i have always had little bugs/issues/random reboots/battery pulls etc. I stuck it out because it was so much faster then everyone else it was worth it (not that it was horrible, just not perfect). i've been on BB1.0 since the day is was official and I haven't had to reboot or power off or force close anything once yet except a game when I was trying to play while a call was coming in (took like 1 sec to resolve itself, call worked, game closed). I'd call that better then stock for sure!

    Yes, bb1.0 doesn't support apps2sd but it does everything else I want and hasn't slowed down a bit since i've had it running which is my number 1 priority as i'm super impatient

    +1 for BB 1.0. Pete has done some crazy awesome things with this ROM...if you haven't tried it, I suggest you at least give out a shot.

    I have to say BB 1.0 is by far the fastest and smoothest. It doesn't have all the same bells and whistles like CM 5.0.6, but it's FAR faster and more reliable. (Even if the LinPack scores were worse, for me anyway)

    Hmm maybe Ill think about trying Bugless Beast V1. I have been on UD since I saw him on here and was so happy. I tried many other ROMs along the way, but UDv10update has been the best, most stable. Maybe Ill try it...

    Anyone can direct me to which ROMs support it? UDv10 had this. Im hoping Bugless had it but didn't.

    CyanogenMod 5.0.6.2 with jsin's themes.

    I tried BuglessBeast v1.0 but it was overheating badly and shutting off after only a couple minutes of use. Tried multiple flashes, multiple wipes and different kernals. Back to CM5062.

    When you say overheating badly, just how bad? Did you measure?

    I wonder if people's perception of speed and snappiness when switching to new ROMs is affected at all by the fact that most of the ROMs recommend a wipe before installing, which tends to speed up the performance of the phone regardless? :)

    Pete does not recomend using SetCPU with BB 1.0. The Rom automaticaly handles the clock speed on demand.
