    What is the most consistent rom? One that hardly gets sluggish but keeps its performance? Thanks

    I have no problems with BB V0.4 personally. I stick with it because it works like it should all day every day.

    Let me just say this: It is all about user preference really. If a ROM sucks users will let it be known for sure. There are several great ROMs out there, and people are generally passionate about which ROM they use. I suggest that the best way for you to know what works for you is to try out different ones until you find one that fits you. This thread can easily turn into a ROM vs. ROM debate. This is why I've decided to post again.

    +1, please sticky something to this effect; these threads are endless, pointless, and fruitless.

    one thing to keep in mind the same model phone may act differently for people using the same rom. I had severe issues with BB (which is known to be a good rom) that I don't have with sapphire.

    QFT! I was the opposite. I couldnt kill BB, but I couldnt keep Sapphire running. I needed a little more eye candy than BB offered, and Ultimate Droid fits the bill best for me. I cant vouch for cyanogen one way or the other, I have made my feelings known about that dev elsewhere on the board.

    I have run most of the roms available. I was running JRummy Droid X Theme rom last week. This week I have been sporting UD 3.5 and I have to say that I have not had a force close at all. I think most of these roms can go through a sluggish moment, but i have found that clearing my cache and rebooting my phone tends to help speed any rom back up.

    I downloaded the Ultimate 3.5 extreme by blackdroid. It is fantastic! I have NO problems whatsoever. I did try the BB.04 I liked it but my GPS would constantly run unless I physically had to turn it off myself. I also tried the Cyanogen 6 and GDE didn't like it very well (I'm sure the earlier release were more stable.) But the UD is just awesome. It is nicely skinned and the performance is great!

    I want a new ROM
    One that won't make me sick
    One that won't make me crash my car
    Or make me feel three feet thick.

    (I had to do it!)

    I had tried 6 Roms in the last 3 days

    UD 3.5 with LUNA theme
    Team Chaos Red Rum Theme
    SS 4.4
    SS 4.5
    CM6
    BB 0.4 DE 2.2 theme

    The ones that perform better for me are, SS 4.5, Team Chaos, and UD No FC's at all, no lag, smooth, no issues at all, out of these 3, I'm running SS 4.5 now.

    With CM6 I keep getting FC's on ADW and LP
    With BB 0.4 my downloads from the market won't start until I rebooted.

    I'm waiting for the new release of UD 4.0 sometime today, I'm sure it will be a great rom as always.

    Seriously, after trying out all of the newest ROMS, I have landed on UD 3.5 w/Luna and I will be sticking with it for a while (until 4.0!). Smooth, fast, very customizable and it looks great.

    IMHO

    I switch between BB .4 and Sapphire 0.8.4. So far I think Sapphire is a clear winner IMO.

    Having worked extensively with most of the current ones I think they are all consistent and have no "drama" involved. They all are as smooth and stable as stock..just have more features...and trust me, I stress them hard making changes (and mistakes) while creating the Themes for them.

    The only one I didn't like and removed after a short while was UD 3.5 but mainly because of the non-stock font.. hard to read for my old eyes.

    So far any of these would be keepers IMHO, it's just down to the small details/features you like best (in no particular order):

    FRF84B (stock deodexed)
    BB v0.4
    SS V4.5 (or 4.4)
    Sapphire 0.8.4
    Insanely Clean v1.1
    CM6-RC1

    With a good CLEAN install and the RIGHT kernel anyone should be happy with the performance of these. Quite frankly Froyo 2.2 has made the biggest impact with speed, as I said the rest is down to the details/features of each Custom ROM.
