    So, I've tried multiple ROMs and searched the forums, but have not found a decent answer to this.

    Can someone recommend a good ROM for a DROID 1?

    I've tried Sorcery(current), BB, and a couple others, but have not been overly impressed with battery life. Sorcery seems to be really slow on top of everything else, even when over-clocked.

    My wife's stock Droid seems to have quite a bit better battery life than mine. I've tried under-clocking, removing all widgets and such, but they seem duct tape fixes.

    So, what would this esteemed group recommend for a good ROM? I don't need lots of bells and whistles, since I don't tweak much.

    Thanks.

    My personal favorites were CM6 and MIUI.

    I'm using project elite 4.2. I'm a heavy user of data and games and run about 12-18 hours on a charge. My battery is also almost two years old. On pe 5.0.2 I got less battery life but its also a GB ROM. PE is very fast and pretty smooth for me.

    Try out liquid gingerbread 1.52. You will be pleasently surprised. And btw don't expect great battery life with any gingerbread rom.

    This. CM7 Final should be released in the next few days... if you don't mind sitting tight for that, its worth it. But CM7 RC4 is very stable and excellent. Primes kernel basically doubles the smoothness and snappiness. Highly recommend trying this out.

    Also CyanogenMod is probably going to be the last standing developers supporting the D1.. best to start sticking with them for now.

    I would disagree that they are the ONLY one.

    I'll second Liquid Gingerbread v1.52.
    Was on Sapphire quite awhile but after updating 2.0.2, had too many force close/freezes. Tried GPA14 and liked the speed and stability but missed the customization. Liquid has the best of both worlds. Lots of goodies, very quick and smooth.

    I didn't say they were, but my prediction is that they'll be the last of the developers supporting the D1.

    Simply Stunning 5.2 is amazing. It's CM7-based, but Chevy makes it better. It flies. I mean, flies. Battery life around 16hrs for me, pretty heavy use. I have literally no complaints with it, and have never loved my phone more.

    I have not been this satisfied with a ROM in quite a while. Very good stuff. I'm running the lv 1.1 Ghz kernel with it. That, with the ROM and SetCPU together = stellar.

    Stock email app

    Hello,

    Does the SS 5.2 GB - 2.3.3 ROM work with MS Exchange and OWA?

    I've got it set up with FRG83D right now, and it works fine.

    I'd sure like to try this Simply Stunning...

    I prefer the stock app for email over touchdown, so I'm doing my homework before I try a new ROM on my work phone.

    Thanks for any input!

    Technically speaking it should work, but it's not hard to just try it out after backing up your current setup. I can't speak from experience on that ROM or anything.

    Go Giants!

    I use the stock email app with exchange push, and it works pretty well. You may have to lock it in memory in ChevyNo1 Tools, and even then, depending on your phone, GB may kill it due to memory issues. But this is true for any GB ROM. I just remember to check it every hour or so I'm away from my desk. Its not absolutely critical for me, so I can deal if it gets killed.
