    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.

    Droid Concepts!
    Miui!
    Liquid!
    Project Elite!
    My top 4 roms eventually.

    BB, Cyanogen, Chevy and i know this won't happen but Ultimate Droid are honorable mentions!

    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!

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