    MIUI4DX/D2 is going to get support for the GB kernel! :)

    I'd guess that CM and other CM-based ROMs will follow as well...

    Hell yes :). Does that mean that battery life/performance will be significantly improved for these roms? I'm so pumped right now its insane.

    Should help w/sleep-battery life issues, that's the main improvement I'm looking for.

    I had previously estimated it would take about a month, maybe a month and a half, before MIUI got the GB kernels going. I'm off by 5 days, lol.

    Dammit I just switched back to cm7 and got everything restored. Any idea whether well still be installing from froyo or will we need to load the monster gb leak?

    You're most likely going to have to flash the monster gb leak first then install the rom. Trust me it'll be worth it though because the gb kernel provides better performance and battery life :).

    I'll just wait until CM7 gets the treatment. MIUI was cool but it ran it's course for me.

    Miui to me is the best rom available if you're looking for a completely new experience of android on your droid 2. Its almost like a new os compared to the other roms that are available. And now with the gb kernel hopefully, the performance on miui will be a lot better and make it that much more awesome.

    Performance on MIUI has been very good for me, as good as CM7 (which makes sense since CM7 is at its core). But I would hope/expect it to improve further w/the GB kernel. Battery life has not been so great, but it does seem to provide better battery life for me than CM7 did.

    There will be more interesting ROM choices when more D2 ROMs integrate the init-2 GB Kernel capability that is being pioneered now. Kinda makes me not as excited about upgrading to Bionic or Galaxy SII... :)

    From what I've read and I don't know if its true or not, the bionic might come with an unlocked bootloader and if that is the case you know for sure that its gonna have a lot of support

    Thread hijack. Keep this in the bionic forum. And no, it won't come with an unlocked bootloader.

    My bad.....I was responding to someone. I didn't know I had to go in the bionic part of the forum to respond to someone in a current thread. My mistake apparently.

    MIUI.com still shows 1.8.5...DX 1.8.12 update isn't done yet, so I wouldn't expect the D2 until tomorrow/Sunday...

    And can we relax a little on the thread policing...a single comment on another device doesn't seem to warrant that.
