    I think I'm going to root my room, I know it voids my warranty but I have insurance on and know the "Evil" of rooting. I would like to get more battery life out of my Droid I just got it 3 days ago I tried different battery apps and whatnot and its been fully charged but still its lasts no longer than 5-6 hours when I'm using it. I heard that apps make your droids battery life last way longer.

    I love to constantly download apps, music, and other stuff. is there a ROM that fits me?

    Try them all and see which one fits your likes the best. :p There are tons of good ROMs out there, and different people have different experiences with different ROMs. So your best bet is to try a few.

    Cup's advice is good advice. Keep trying until you find one that you like and works well on your phone.

    I believe that Astro will on non rooted phones. If your phone is rooted then Titanium is the app for you.

    If your phone is new give the battry a chance. When I got mine the battery was awful so right away I got a second one to crry with me, but after a few battery cycles it got better. Now I hardly use my backup battery. Also I tried every rom that is on this site and all were very good, but I actually went back to stock, but I kept root so I could use barnacle wifi tether and a few other root only apps. In my two to three week period of trying other roms and overclock kernals and suck I went back after my GF got a droid and I noticed that her stock oem droid was much snappier than mine was running any rom. If you do want a rom tho I would recommend simply stunning, by far the one I had the best experience with or if you are new try rom manager after obtaining root. I definitely like my stock 2.1 rom with root priveledges. No fc's snappy as hell i just looks slightly less pretty. Also for battery life make sure your brightness is down except in very sunny areas and check your battery use in settings>phone info to see what you could cut back on to save some.
