    so i have the gb ota update rooted using d3 method, gb for me has been laggy, slow, not very relieable and has horrible battery life. im looking for a rom that has good battery life, fast, bucketloads of customization... etc, which one would u suggest? i have tried roms like cm7 and liberty and i enjoyed them.

    I'm running Liberty 2.0 and love it! The customization level is very high, and I have not had a ROM caused problem. All of my hiccups have been from user error.

    Yes I used the Romer v7. You must use v7. The only down side is Theres no sensors. Which isn't a huge deal, but theres no GPS for my running app so thats my only complaint. Its an excellent setup.

    Honestly, I don't, because I have yet to get GB on my global. I think if you just sbf back to froyo if your running GB now, you'll be ok. I'm not sure if I fully understand your question. Are you asking if you are currently running GB, how to get to Liberty ROM, or if it can be done in general?

    I pretty sure i read elsewhere that liberty GB will not work on the d2G. The romer will only work with froyo.

    I second that last part. I have read about a lot of people switching from their rom of choice to GB, and being supremly disappointed from the hype. I would stick with a froyo rom tbh.

    Cm7 is based on the gb ota update or on the gb leak? Still bugs on cm7? Apex is better?

    im not sure i installed apex a little while ago and it is a very nice rom i would have to rate it up there with cm7 and liberty but the only problem i have found is that the camera is messed up

    Ok, so you tried both apex and cm7. Which one you like the most?

    if you dont care for GB or even if you do HeXen is always a good one. great customization etc. but i dont know if its out for GB yet im got a new D2G due to pixel issues and am on Froyo with HeXen. im honestly still on froyo with Hexen because im not a big fan of not being able to do a free hotspot. so i like HeXen but the others that have been mentions are good as well

    Until I royally ruined my D2G last night with a stupid system mod, I was running the froyo version of CM7, and loved it. I could not find any bugs that were mentionable. Just a few tiny ones here and there, that didn't matter to me. I had to SBF back to box status, and I am now in the process of rooting my D2G as we speak, and putting CM7 back on there. I have used Liberty also, and the lack of sensors just killed an otherwise brilliant rom in my opinion. I have not tried GB, but I haven't heard fantastic reviews for it, so I haven't tried it. I would recommend both Liberty and CM7.

    probably cm7 because it has so many different themes and whatnot to it
