    i've always used bugless beasts, and i've been pretty happy, but with all this updating going on recently i'm thinking about trying *****in bagel 2.0.6. how is it? im on bb .7.6.
    it seems like bb has had the spotlight lately. basically, i just want your opinions on the two?
    thanks

    BB (7.5) ran great for me... I did go back to DroidMod 2.0.5 however. DM 2.0.6 gave me re-boot cycling at the Moto logo for some reason.

    sholes/droidmod 2.06 is running great for me so far, very stable OCd to 1000 mghz. Its very snappy and I love all of the options you get on boot (and all the smoked glass love the rom gets)

    For those of you not able to see the "check box" for allowing su access and or issues with bootlooping, your problem may be this. If you have live wallpapers on your phone, you need to install the newest version of xeudoxis’ live wallpapers from alldroid, this will include the newer 1.1 framework and should clear up your problem.

    AllDroid - View topic - [release]Live Wallpapers for Droid 2.0.1 v1.1 *UPD 02/20/10*

    I did not go back to 2.0.6.

    The live wallpapers were nice, but stock ones FC'd (market versions worked). Removed them.

    Tried 2.0.6 again, constant re-boot cycling for about 3 minutes, then it loaded fine. Go figure....

    Live Wallpapers would constantly force close on me with 2.0.6. However, they work perfectly on DM 1.0.

    My thoughts on the matter:

    All users should root and install a ROM (doesn't matter which one - Simply Stunning, Bugless Beast, Ultimate Droid, etc) on their phone manually before using any sort of automatic update service to do so, or at the very least read all of the guides in full.

    It IS possible to make something TOO easy for one's own good, and I think this is exactly what DM does for people. It's way too easy to not know jack about anything and then screw up your phone, and not even know how to make a Nandroid backup/restore, etc.

    DM offers an amazing service, and it's not the service that is the issue.
