    Hello everyone,

    I have my droid for about a year now and have just decided to put a ROM on it after I saw the screens from the Avalon theme I just had to try it. I do not really feel like reading through all the threads about what ROM is fastest, has the most features etc. (no disrespect to the developers, I could not be more grateful of you guys. You make droids worth having.)

    With that said I was hoping to get a few recommendations from the community of a ROM and that would be best suited to me.

    What I am looking for.... I am not looking for something that is blazing fast or loaded with so many features most of which I don't know how to use. I just want something that is very snappy, does not drain the battery, easy to use (install/keep updated), and has support for some clean looking themes.

    I know there are very many but I do not like to install ROMS on my phone, every time I do my heart skips a beat. Please don't just recommend a ROM just to get its name out there, unless it really is legit.

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate all of your help.

    Sham

    ShadowROM all the way. After using this I have not even worried about another one.

    for options: Ultimate Droid
    for stability: MetickMod stock.
    i personally love both these roms, MetickMod is basically stock, slimmed down and sped up. Ultimate droid has tons of customization options

    You can get exactly what you're looking for by simply rooting and not installing any ROM.

    If he wants Avalon, sapphire would be his best bet since that is what is officially supported.

    I should have been more clear. I am looking to switch from Avalon. There are a lot of text problems, and it is not any quicker/snappier than just my stock droid. Also I'll post a quick priority list.

    1) Stability
    2) Speed/Responsiveness
    3) Supported Themes
    4) Wired/Wireless Tether support

    Thanks so far guys, giving me a place to start looking around.

    Having a small issue. Can someone point me somewhere I can get a sbf of Clockworkmod recovery so I can flash it to my phone. I tried doing it from ROM Manager but I can not boot into recovery now, I think I need to flash it using RSD Lite.

    Thank you!!

    I've had that problem as well. Go into Rom manager & clear your recovery or maybe flash sprecovery then reflash CW. I'd go with the newest UD. Haven't had any problems & it has plenty of themes
