    0G Droid. I've tried various GPA builds (including GPA19), and CM7, and I have come to the conclusion that my particular phone just doesn't like Gingerbread. I even went through this process and the Gingerbread based ROMs are still buggy on my handset. C'est la vie, just bad luck for me.

    I don't have much experience with ROMs, but I like certain features they unlock. Here's my wishlist, maybe you guys that know more about the differences in the ROMs can tell me which might suit my needs best.

    Froyo based
    Tethering
    Gingerbread keyboard baked in (if not I'll have to look into getting it from an app, it's really the one thing about Gingerbread that I REALLY want to keep)
    Camera works well (even BB 0.6.2.1 with Peter's v0.3 kernels was always laggy)
    It works (stable stable stable, as few weird lags at inopportune moments as possible, etc)

    Any particular recommendations? Do pretty much all the ROMs have tethering baked in? If so, then it's just a matter of finding the one that works best on my particular handset and finding a good Gingerbread keyboard app.

    Does the AOSP Froyo ROM have tethering features built in?

    Liquid 3.1 runs great on my OG. Best rom I've used on my phone. Makes gingerbread run flawlessly. And there's an app in the market called open garden tether. Great app

    One thing I forgot, do those have black taskbar across the top? Or the option for a black taskbar via theming or other method? I really despise the stock white one.

    Yup, both of those ROMs do have a black task bar.

    Are you having any 3g issues? So your running fresh on your phone with 3.1? No force close or lag? You have a d1? Sorry for being inquisitive
