    After having left Fission for Rubix back when Fission was on version 1.0, Im extremely content in saying that Im back. In that period, ive also tested just about all the other ROMs.

    The last greatest ROM I tried was DarkSlide. It was a premium ROM. It was a phenomenal ROM and still is.

    However, the speed was literally NOT anything near what Fission 2.5.7 is. The thing is though is that I actually thought it was really quick while using it. I didn't realize what I was missing until I installed Fission.

    You have to download the Fission ROM Manager to get Fission. It is awesome. It blows away the regular ROM manager. FRM is obviously only for Fission/Fusion while the other is for everything.


    I BEG any of you who hasn't tried Fission yet to download their Gingerbread themed goodness TODAY!

    FYI, If you absolutely need blur, then install Fusion.

    i used fission, but being able to add my facebook contacts right into my contact list is literally the most useful thing on my phone. so i need a ROM that supports that, and the one ive found that does that the best is ApeX.

    Ummm, fast? How fast do people need their phone to be? Mine is as quick as I can process what is happening. And I can get up to 3 days of battery with Darkslide + my setup. I'm set :)

    I don't over/underclock or nothing and my phone is as speedy as can be. I'm sure Fission is great, but I don't believe its the best. There are a LOT of good ROM's out there.

    And now there's Liberty, which I'm sure is gonna be excellent. JMO.

    I've installed Fission, and as far as Facebook goes... I love it. Now I can actually use the Android Facebook Account and use the option of either Syncing all facebook contacts, or just the existing ones, which is a HUGE problem with Motorola's Social Networking Account.

    I've also tried a LOT of ROMS, most of which just relied on Launchers to make them look good... However Using Fission is AWESOME!! Not only does it run fast, smooth, and flawless... But the ROM Manager for it is also awesome, easily swapping Themes, or addons. The whole thing is just very well set up. I'm so happy with my Droid X right now, now I can hold off until the new phones come out!

    First... I have the BH6X 1930 mAh extended battery. Not a big one, but helps a little.

    Second, I'm not on my phone constantly. I make and take a lot of phone calls, but phone calls don't use display.

    Third, I DON'T under/overclock my phone. There is no need for it. I don't use taskillers or battery management apps. They are just more apps running.

    Fourth, I freeze EVERYTHING I'm not using. The list is about 20 apps long, and that's not including the bloatware that's removed. To name a few, news/weather widget, music, media share, blockbuster, anything amazon, radio and that's just a few. If your not using it, why have it on?

    Hope that helps a little.

    @Porterhouse0. Yes, that works as well. I freeze them with the paid version of Titanium Backup. Its quicker to defrost them all in batch versus renaming them all. But renaming is just as effective.

    Delete the (apk) part and type bak.

    So radio.bak. Then change it back when you need. It will probably stock it at the bottom of you app list.

    I can't speak on any other ROM as I left the ROM world for a while and was just using stock but decided this week to try one of these ROM's just to have a little more fun with my phone.

    First let me say WOW Darkslide 4.2 is just flat out awesome. It beats any ROM I've ever used from my D1 to this. This thing worked from the start and has been working with zero problems thus far and I installed it last night 1/11. Like I said i haven't tried anything else but man this thing is so fast I can't even keep up with it. everything loads up quickly, smooth and I love the effects. My email and web loads up quickly. I'm still new to it and trying out other things. I haven't tried Navigation yet so I don't know how that works. 3G Hotspot is not working for me but I think I'm missing something there. Probably need to install the hack but I thought it was preloaded.

    Anyway I LOVE Darkslide so far but I'm going to try Fission too as the idea of it having it's own ROM Manager to load add-ons and themes is interesting to me. I just hope it works as great as Darkslide but I'm happy with what I have now.

    One thing I did notice going from stock Droid X back in to the ROM world and running Fission... It seems my battery life wasn't holding up... I then noticed the 50% bug in the Battery Manager... Same say its all in your head, its just a glitch and doesn't make a difference... Let me tell you it does, and the only temp fix I found was to airplane mode it for a minute, and then turn airplane mode off.

    I remember this was big in Android 2.0, the most common was LG Ally and HTC Droid Eris, however a LOT of Android 2.0 models had it. I thought it was fixed in Android 2.2, or maybe it was 2.2.3 OTA update. Anyway. Wasn't sure if anyone else had noticed it.

    So I was on darkslide 4.2 and decided to test out fission based on your recommendation. I don't see any real performance improvement. Highest quadrant I've been able to achieve is 1890 which is about the same as DS4.2 Screen re-draws might be a ever so slightly faster and scrolling through various lists seems to hiccup a little less often. Pretty minimal "improvements" for losing the darkslide theme. The default on fission is really bad. Where can you look at previews of the other themes available? Does fission have a main forum anywhere?
