    Ok well I finally got my thunderbolt rooted after a week and a half of having problems with my computer not detecting my phone. Now that I got it rooted what is the best ROM to run. I know everyone has their own opinions but Im open to hear them. Thanks guys

    There is no best rom for any phone.

    Although lot of people seem to like the DasBAMF Rom but I have heard good things about Liquid Thunderbread.

    I have the D1 and use Liquids ROM's and they are awesome, so I can only assume Liquid's ROM's for Thunderbolt would be awesome as well.

    Ok Im new to this. I have been reading about all this stuff and trying to grab the concept of it all. So would it be best if I just left it in the stock version of being rooted? What if I did the verizon OTA updates? Will I still be rooted after that? Can I get a different radio while being on the stock rom? Like the MR2 or is that already on there.

    Liquid thunderbread 2.3. Completely AOSP. File size 67 MB. Battery life amazing. If you like sense ui this doesn't have it.

    I really like the dasBamf roms coupled with Imoseyon's kernels. DasBamf with Sense 3.0 RC4 is VERY nice. Be sure to make a nand backup using Clockwork Recovery than try a variety of roms and stick with the one that you like the best.

    I love gingerth3ory. Fast great battery life and he updates the ROM and only puts out what he feels is good. Plus he is always around to help out if you need. I would suggest trying gingerth3ory.

    I'm loving the sense 3.0, but does gingerth3ory have it? I'm thinking of testing out the rom. I'm on das bamf 3.0 right now

    He has some sense. It's a great ROM. Doesn't hurt to try it. That's the great thing bout these phones is that we have choices. :)

    Is gingerth3ory sense, 3.0, blur, or something different? And, no, I don't fully know what I'm talking about!

    Blur is MOTO. Like MOTO blur. It's their bloatware. At least that's what I assume when I see blur.

    Sense is HTC. Gingerth3ory ROM has some sense but just enough. Like he has the lock ring the launcher and widgets. But he did take out a lot. I think it had the perfect amount.

    Either roms has a lot of sense or none. If you want some sense go with gibgerth3ory. If you want none he has another ROM called inj3ected or something. Has no sense at all. I mean with all these roms you can try them if you don't like them switch. Everyone is gonna have a different view on roms.

    Be sure to post how you like it compared to stock.
    So far i've only had stock/rooted stock/cm7/BAMF Sense 3.0 RC4

    Of these I like bamf the best.. I really wanted to like cm7 but the battery life was a good 20-30% less than with bamf.. Same radio (from 7/8 -- not the one that came out 7/18).. Also the launcher sometimes crashed and I would lose the call/app menu/internet buttons at the bottom making my phone useless until I restarted the launcher..

    So far with BAMF sense 3.0 I am getting better battery life than stock and the UI for sense 3.0 is greatly impoved (as well as many of the programs contained within sense).

    The only downside is that I have had is some connectivity issues.. I had to use advanced wifi lock so that my phones data connection could still receive push messages while idle. Also I ocassionally lose internet without realizing it even when not connected to wifi.. Its rare though and nothing worse than what I had before rooting.

    Overall I'd say my experience has been much better since I've rooted and installed custom roms on my phone. I can't stand the verizon bloat

    Out of all the roms I've tried, this is my favorite. Make sure you go to the thunderbolt sister site and grab the downgrade kernel, it will fix a little bug with the rom.
