    eh, having had both, and ran your stuff on both, i still prefer the x. theres some stupid little apps like city id and dlna that i like. plus camera options like panoramic and all the other hardware in it. x may not be much of an upgrade, but i still think it is worth it. using swype cures any anxiety i had about losing my hard keys

    I like the blur apps. I don't like the widgets, but I like how all messaging is pulled into one. I agree with Shelooga

    I think that a mixture is best. Mainly aosp, with some blur features. Like the camera/email/maybe social networking.

    The main reason we like aosp is for speed and things. Also, could you look at scaling settings etc and maybe do some more battery tweaks? I've currently done some scaling stuff myself and yes not every droid can take the same but low voltage 900mhz is pretty good for my battery.

    the X is my first droid/ smartphone so I really didnt have much to compare it to but prior to purchase I was lookin around the forums and while getting educated I didnt think that the X was really a whole lot different than the D1, aside from a few hardware upgrades it wasnt a huuggee difference.

    maybe people coming from the D1 had just gotton so used to it that modding the X a bit to somewhat operate like a D1 is just there preference?

    this all just speculation :p

    anyways ill be giving your ROM a shot here shortly :)

    If it were up to me id say create a X specific ROM and make it unique in its own way (I kno thats a tad bit difficult due to the locked bootloader)...people love options, especially adroid users so load the ROM up with options options optioonss i guess kinda like chevy tools :)..i dont know if its possible but maybe make it easy within the ROM to edit text color, notification color, have an array of notificaton icons available for changing all by entering a "settings menu" to do so... but from seeing your first SSX ROM it looks like your well on your way to making some great ROMS.

    I like the DX screen (won't go back because of it) and no hard keyboard. Everything else was better on my D1. The DX overclocked speed is slightly better than an overclocked D1, Imo.

    I am not a fan of all the bloat...I would like to see something cleaner, and less chunky...i realize this was the first try...and from what i had it was very nice, i vote aosp..by the way the theme was very cool..thanks!:)

    You guys know it is a matter of a couple of minutes through my tools to remove everything you don't like right??

    I think the benefits of me including this stuff for the people that DO want it, outweigh those who only need a couple of minutes to remove it themselves.

    I have been a dev for 20 years, and this is a pretty common approach.

    However - if you feel that the 2 minutes of effort is too much - suggestions on speeding it up are welcome :)

    lol chev im in agreement with you, having the options to choose which blur you want or dont want to me is much better, with as much time as everyones puts into the x, they can spend the extra 2 mins deciding what blur if any they want

    Chevy, I'm a long time user of your D1 Rom's and they were always the best! I like the options to add or remove the stuff in the DX Rom and think it was a worthy first effort. My only problem with it is the exchange email support. I tried adding the D1 email client but it force closes on me. If you could get that fixed i'd be a happy camper!

    Any chance of getting this up on Rom Manager br0? RM for the X is pretty anemic. And for the record, some of us DO like the blurry roms.
