    So we have root now. Which of these roms will we see or not see on our lovely Droid 3's?

    - Cyanogen
    - Liberty
    - Liquid
    - Droid Concepts
    Maybe even some others i cant think of?

    Root doesn't make any of those possible though it "can" be a stepping stone towards them. We still need a recovery and we don't know if a bootstrap or 2nd-init will work (ala the Droid 2/X). Our bootloader is still locked...so until we have a recovery, bootstrap/2nd-init or unlocked bootloader.....I wouldn't look for anything as far as Roms go.

    Never say never. It wasn't long ago when many were saying that the locked bootloader on the Droid 2 (yes, the Droid 2 has a locked bootloader, remember?) would mean no CM7 for it, but they were proven to be wrong, ween't they? I predict that a workaround will be found for he locked bootloader on the Droid 3 too.

    @patfactorx - It feels like Im running a MIUI rom ! Im digging it, especially when they get more MIUI themes to go with it.

    @tattedupboy - Oh i have no doubt we will get these ROMS but I highly doubt we will get Ultimate Droid on the D3!

    So does anyone know of any working roms yet? Or anyone working on roms? I see nothing over at XDA either.

    from what i read is that there is NO recovery for the droid 3(bootstrapped or custom recovery) and no recovery means no roms

    I didn't care that much for miui when I had it on my dx. It had too many issues imo. I ended up sbf'ing and installing the old apex 1.4.1 and was happier.

    I won't be putting a ROM on any of my phones from here in. I was a flashing fool on all my other phones, D1, DX and TBolt sometimes running 2 or 3 in a day so this is a major change for me. I like the new stock blur and have been using it on the DX2 I had and now the D3, it runs just fine in my opinion, especially since root, the ability to freeze the garbage, run the V6 Supercharger script and the leaked update has my D3 running like a clock.

    I have a lot of love for the elite developers, but with epic phones dropping nearly every week, the chances of them sticking with a phone for optimum development are slim. With the D1, DX and TBolt there was lulls in releases from all the major manufacturers, there wasn't anything new for them to get interested.
