    I'm looking for something with a few extra features, like tethering, but keeps the base look and functionality of stock. I have a Moto Droid. Any recommendations?

    If you are only interested in tethering and don't want overclocking, you could go with a stock ESE81 ROM. The ability to tether is determined by the kernel and not the ROM. Prior to the introduction of an app called Barnacle, you needed a modified kernel to WiFi tether. Now Barnacle enables the user to WiFi tether with a stock kernel and rooted stock ROM.If you want something more than tethering, IMO, the most stable ese81 is the latest Cyanogen Mod.

    Cyanogen is pretty nice and looks clean.

    ROM Manager + Cyanogen 5.0.6.2 + Home from ROM Manager>Download ROM = Heaven.

    Fast, WiFi tether accepted, and you get the coolest (in my opinion) rounded notification bar. It has a nice feel to it.

    Might I add, if you are using ANY custom ROM, and are a n00bcake, ROM Manager is the easiest way to do anything. Just be rooted and it is all straightforward, there is even a rooted stock 2.1 on there if you go to stock images when you download.

    The Cyanogen rom looks pretty good - I'll try that.

    I just rooted my Droid from stock 2.1 using these instructions.
    How-To Root your stock 2.1 Droid

    It was rather long, but it works now. I have SPRecovery on it since that was in the instructions.

    Based on that, what steps do I need to do to get Cyanogen on the "correct" way from here?

    Thanks everyone so far.

    Edit: Nevermind. Got it loaded with ROM manager. Everything looks good and is running fine!

    Grats, I'm glad to know there is another happy Cyanogen user now :)

    ROM Manager is probably the most helpful (and easy) app a modder can have.

    Now, what you have to do is pick up a sick CyanogenMod signature and you're all set!

    This is what I did and I have no problems so far. I almost ripped it back off once I saw the 3D screen (whatever it's called) but tried the "Home" in ROM Manager and it brought it back to normal.

    Your build.prop says that for compatbility with the market. Go ask koush if cyanogenmod is built off of ESE81 source.


    I insist. Please report back your findings.
