    So i have run both for about 2 weeks, and idk. Project Elite is so fast and smooth, but i like the customization in Ultimate Droid 1.0.0, but it just seems that i get alot of fc and lag with ud. I know everyones phone is different and stuff. Just wondering what your guys opinions are and why? Thanks

    UltimateDroid is and always will be the best in my personal opinion. From time to time I get pulled in other directions like with Cyanogen and ShadowROM but when it really comes down to it I always go back to UD because it's customization and constant support... There are only a few basic flaws that I am having with tUD 1.0.0 but BD is aware and fixing them for the next release... plus they all deal with the music player so no biggie :)

    you hit the nail on the head - every phone is different, so you won't necessarily have the same experience with a rom as someone else, and vice-versa. so just keep in mind that whatever opinions you get here are just that - opinions. and so far, my experience has been that opinions don't change the way my phone runs... ;)

    UD 1.0.0 is smooth as butter. I haven't had a single FC or launcher redraw since I upgraded from UD7.

    Holy Crap Bro! Thanks so much for reccomending this ROM! I love it already! Do you use it with launcher pro without problems?

    I just installed UD yesterday, coming from BB 0.5. I'll have to reserve judgment for a few days. So far, I like it.

    ud has more options as far as customizing goes. PE is awesome though. Very smooth and very fast.

    I had too many fc issues with UD, so I quit using the ROM. Thought it was maybe my phone, so clean installed on my gf phone and same thing...process.android.acore fc all day. Ditched it and havent gone back.

    PE has not given her a fc yet. However, she does like having different color LEDs for notifications because she puts her phone on silent at work. PE has a limited choice of led colors...basically...ONE. You can change the led color for MMS (or gmail) cant remember....but thats ALL.

    just an fyi - the Blink app (free in the mkt) lets you change/choose LED colors.

    awesome! Will do that. Its my girls phone...not mine. I am running miui 3.999...but flashed PE for her last night. Going to have her dl that app and pick her own color leds...it will be better if she does it...instead of always handing me her phone and having me do it. lol

    IDK why LFY gets no mention.

    My vote for best custom ROM goes hands down to Liquid Frozen Yogurt 1.71 with the interactive Slayher kernels.

    Smooth, fast, great themes, LauncherPro Plus with no lag!

    Was on BB for some time but I won't go back.

    For reasons everyone has mentioned. Customization is nice...but stability with speed is more important to me.

    I ran UD 8.0, and tried 1.0 for a week, PE is just flawless IMO, it just doesn't get the love because you cant do all of the tricks some of the other ROMS can.

    Best kept secret for Android IMO...just my 2 cents.

    Had LFY1.71, switched to PE2, tried UD1.0 and it didn't play nice with my phone so switched back to LFY. Finally was able to get UD to work on my phone which I'm still using. I prefer LFY or PE but the ability to customize UD keeps me using it. When PE3 comes out I will switch again.

    currently running PEv2 and loving it. i have tried almost everything out there and this seems to be running the best out of them all. no FC's at all, no market problems (like i was having with UD8)

    i tried UD8 and loved it until i tried PE.

    what is this UD 1.0 everyone is talking about...i thought that was a 2.1 ROM? i was under the impression that UD8 was the latest and greatest ROM from BD?
