    Hi, I find my favorite ROM to be liquid frozen yogurt. Its fast, smooth, and comes with a great variatey of themes to download over top the ROM. Not to mention it comes over clocked at 1gz., plus additional kernels to download if you want to go faster. You can find this in rom manager or right here on Droid forums.net. there are plenty of helpful instructions on the forums, just look up liquid frozen yogurt, its up to version 1.71.

    This is a question that has been asked hundreds of times and I'm pretty sure it will keep being ask for a long time,as long as we have new members :)... pretty much it all depends on your own taste...

    I have flashed pretty much every single ROM available for the D1 ( you named [CM6,Ultimate Droid, BB, SS,Liquid,Sapphire,MIUI etc...]) out of all of them, the best for my phone has always been Ultimate Droid.

    Many users will agree that not every phone response the same way to a particular ROM, in my case for example, I flashed Liquid a few weeks ago, and my phone just couldn't handle it, got super hot within 5 minutes and my battery from being at 80% it drop down to 20% in less than 10 minutes... so I just went back to what I was running before.

    I know of a few users that can't work with UD, but will work fine on liquid.

    Do some research, remember that trial and error will help you find the best ROM for you, but please do yourself a favor and avoid any headaches by always backing up your phone before installing any ROM/ Theme.... :icon_ banana: :)
