    Well I'm giving this rom a try and it's great! Fast, smooth, and stable for me on my Droid. We'll see about the battery life.

    I miss some of the frills of Ultimate Droid, especially the setting in messaging to just give you mobile phones and the music controls on the lock screen, but my Quadrant score increased dramatically. I'm coming up on par with the Nexus with the standard slayhers kernel installed and compcache enabled.

    I'll be the first to admit I don't know much as I rooted my phone about two weeks ago. How do you know which kernel to choose? My apologies if this was covered elsewhere and I can't find it.

    Thanks

    Kernels is a tough one. It depends a lot on your phone. Some phones take some kernels better than others. Its a trial and error thing.

    Thanks for the quick response! If I install a faster kernel over the stock one, what do I do if I want to go back? Will I need to restore the old rom and all of my apps?

    Just reflash the ROM without wiping data and you'll get the original kernel back, and everything else will remain as well.

    Wow, this phone is awesome. So glad I didn't get an iPhone.

    I'll give the 1200 a try, and thanks for the tips.

    try med voltages at the speed u want first then go down in voltage. make backups along the way so if you get issues, you can restore.

    I tried Chevy's at first, but settled on Slayers. Like it was said before, it differs from phone to phone.
