    Wish I could say the same. UD is definitely the best out and after installing Sourcery, I thought I found a new ROM to roll with. However it just runs way too slow on my Droid. Not even remotely as fast and fluid as UD. The font is hella annoying, too.

    Definitely big ups to Eagle and Gflam for creating this ROM. It is pretty sweet. I look forward to trying future releases once it gets a more polished feel.

    Sorry to hear that you thought it was slow for everyone else it's been buttery smooth i would maybe have tried a different kernel since the stock one is only clocked to 600mhz

    As for the fonts there are 21 fonts to choose from in the settings and i'm sure there would have been one that suits your likes.

    Hope you try it out again now that you have this info

    Now that you mention the kernel is clocked to 600 MHz, I wonder if that was the issue. I am quite spoiled with OCing my Droid to 1 GHz. I'm going to check it out again and try a different kernel. Thanks for the info.

    No problem and if you go into settings> sourcery magic> sourcery wizardry> sourcery wizardry

    You will see an option for slayher kernels and in there there is a 900lv, a 1000lv, a 1100lv, and a 1200lv kernel for you to choose from or use a different one if you wish. There is also support for compcache in there

    Nice. Does this actually give you the option to flash the kernels or is it a shortcut to download each kernel?

    The ONLY reason I may go back to UD or LFY is if they get a stable GB rom rolling before Sourcery Team does. Otherwise this is easily the best ROM out there.

    For those having issues with the phone getting progressively slower. Either reboot the device daily or turn off compcache. That is one of the biggest flaws with compcache. It will slow down the phone without regular reboots.

    too bad to hear that

    Well stable is in the eye of the beholder i guess :)

    2.0 which is being worked on now is froyo. after that is complete we will start on gingerbread and will add the features back in . So there will most likely be a stable gingerbread rom out there before sourcery gets there. We will make gingerbread after 2.0 but i am still really lacking at a reason why. I'm just not getting the whole ginger bread thing. even with no featues jsut base rom i built and booted i still thought it was slower and other than the somewhat cool glow feature while scrolling i jsut dont get it :). froyo was a different deal it had flash. But im hoping that as we are working on 3.0 someone will come out with that killer feature that says im glad i started on this.

    I agree totally on compcache and thats why its instituted in the way it is . I could do it in the settings like everyone else but i think it needs to be restarted and for people like me not on the system at all.

    Thanks and im glad you are enjoying the rom.

    I am so glad 2.0 is Froyo based! I totally agree with you, I still do not understand the hype with gingerbread, froyo runs great and ROMs like sourcery add everything I could possible want (hope 2.0 has color LEDs).
    I was about to make a post in the general hacking thread saying that I wish there was at least one developer not stuck on gingerbread and still producing nice froyo based ROMs, then I saw this post :) This is why I love this ROM and support it financially whenever I can (another small donation coming soon :))

    Ah, I see. That's pretty sweet. I can't wait to finally get home so I can finally take advantage of 3G again. Being away from wireless data for 6 months has been pretty ****ty.

    By far the best ROM out there. No close second. BTW any reports of alarm issues when the clock is operating in the dock? It won't let me delete a time. Anyway great job!
