    I had installed droidmods v1.0 rom. I had noticed when attempting to download anything from marketplace that I was constantly dropping the signal and would have to retry to connect. I am in a crappy signal area for verizon but never dropped the signal when downloading anything from marketplace before with standard 2.0.1. I went back to stock for now but does anyone know if each of these roms made by our community have different signal strengths or software for attaining a signal?

    Yesterday I was getting quite a few FC and some from the market after I installed. 1.0. I did a 1 minute battery pull and since then I haven't had any issues.

    So does anyone know if signal strengths can change from one rom to another? Or is it all on the tower side?

    I honestly dont think the signal strength changes from rom to rom. I beleive its alot of the themes used ion these roms the indicators act differently. Out of every rom ive used and ive tried quite a few the signal is different on all of them.

    Well I've taken my wifes unrooted and my rooted phones around town with zero difference in coverage. Just my experience, but to me this myth is busted. :D

    I think hook mentioning earlier is how each rom handles the signal icons. I have a custom icon set for the signal bars, its one bar lower that probably should be but i mean no big deal.
