    i dunno bout the rest of you guys, but im kinda addicted to flashing ROMs. once i got past the initial fear of rooting/flashing my phone, and got a better understanding of how nandroid backups work, im always looking for a reason to flash my phone lol.

    lol, I've been rather slow with flashing on my Droid... it was a major problem on my last WM phone and I would flash at least twice a week, usually more. When the group I was in started developing our last ROM is was flashing daily for the better part of a month (sometimes twice a day).... so I'm a bit burnt out now. I flash Pete's (B. Beast) ROM whenever he posts a new version but that's about it. Hoping he doesn't release another one until 2.1...

    On WM we had a program called SASHIMI which made flashing a BREEZE because it would go through and completely restore all your setting and personal info (registries, data, ring-tones, EVERYTHING, even install programs) so it was painless to flash so often... I've been able to use the .update method thus far with Pete's ROMs but even that can be a pain at times compared to just hitting one button on SASHIMI.

    When you have to manually install and configure 5 times a day after each flash 6 emails , Sipdroid , widgets , custom skins etc. the excitement goes away .

    ^+ Exactly why I haven't stared flashing like crazy.... I REALLY wish the guy that wrote SASHIMI would come of to the Droid platform. That saved SO MUCH freakin time.

    I'm addicted too. Have you tried simply stunning? It just came out and is awesome. The best 2.1 rom out there by far.
