    I'm currently running pete's GPA13 rom. It is significantly smoother and more efficient than any other rom I have tried. I am currently underclocking my device at 450MHZ, and it runs as fast or faster than UD ran clocked at 800MHZ. I can't say enough about this rom.

    Well I decided to go to LGB 1.31. I may try the others out, but right now I am sticking with Liquid's ROM's.

    I see that 1.4 is now out for download - I will hold off a little bit before implementing.

    Sorry I didn't reply right away...but you now have the best ROM out there. I'm very particular about how things work...I've tried ALL of them and Liquid just plain works. A cool black'd out theme was just released. I may try applying it soon. Too much fun!!!

    Were you able to get the black'd out theme? How can I get it? The link appears broken on Liquid Smooth Roms, plus the images don't appear. I am using Firefox - is that an issue?

    The theme is posted on Liquid's forum page http://www.droidforums.net/forum/liquid/132337-theme-black-n-bold-lgb-1-42-a.html
    I haven't applied the theme yet, probably on Saturday.

    Cyanogenmod is a popular ROM, but Motodroid development is falling behind. The current nightly experimental build is based on Gingerbread and working towards becoming a stable release candidate. Meanwhile most other CM-supported phones are on their second release candidate.

    Regardless, I use the latest stable version for Droid 1, which is version 6.1.2, and seriously recommend keeping your eye on Cyanogenmod, it has some very nice features.
