    Let me start by saying that I know this topic is overdone. And I'm just poking a sleeping bear. :icon_ poke:
    But this is a little bit different I think. I'm looking for a rom that I had once come across and now I can't find it! I browse/lurk a lot of different forums, and its hard to remember where I see certain things, you know? Anyway, there was a 2.2 Froyo rom that was minimalist. It looked stock, but I could load themes, overclock, and load a custom kernel, while still getting the original droid feel, which I like now with FRG83D.
    If anyone could point me to a simplistic 2.2 rom with all those features, PLEASE post it!!

    Thank you all!!

    Far be it for me to call metiCk's builds "simple" (because they are top-notch builds) but they ARE simplistic. They are mostly stock, rooted ROMs that are just slimmed down for speed and simplicity. Here is his team's thread: metiCkOne - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    If you want to install a theme, make sure to get the DEODEXED version of whatever ROM you choose.

    ShadowRom v0.2.2 has a stock feel to it, but would also fit your needs.

    It is good :) and it is the rom I think the OP will be happiest with judging by what he is looking for.

    I'm in the process of downloading this now. Are there any screenshots? Or does it look completely stock when you first put it on? The reason I want this one, I think, is because I want to put the Kuro theme on that I found earlier today. :)

    ^ You have to use themes that are made for that specific Rom and Rom version. Kuro will not work unless someone can port it for you. Kuro is for the Miui and is very much different than a stockish Rom.

    Well crap! Is MIUI any good in your opinion? I have heard of it, but haven't checked up on it much...

    I have never used MIUI but I know it was adapted from Chinese Rom I believe. The interface is totally different from stock droid (no app drawer, different lock screen, browers, dialer, etc.). It kind of has a I*hone look to it.

    I am on Ultimate Droid 2.5 right now, and it has tons of themes and customizations but it doesn't have a stock feel to it, if that is what you are looking for.

    Metickone has some available themes here:http://www.droidforums.net/forum/metickone/108007-themes-metickmod-theme-collection-benny879.html

    Well. Ok. I don't necessarily want it stock I just want some of the nice, new stuff I got with FRG83D. Does that make sense?

    I was rooted before FRG83D came out so I am not aware of what the exact new features are for that build.

    Ultimate Droid 2.5 is on FRG83D right now, so it should have all the features + many more. That is what I am running. I would recommend that.

    Project Elite is coming out with v4 soon, but V 3.5 is awesome too and uses FRG83.

    Those are my 2 favorites right now. Metickone's FRG83 also looks promising, but haven't tried it yet.

    metiCkmod is what I run.it is by far the smoothest & most stable rom out.you can get a few themes for it also.I have davros' ginger bread over it. If your looking for something other than "fancy toys & pretty's" this is deffinetly a rom you should try.

    I've been using the MIUI for 2 days now and I really like it but I don't like the fact that it doesn't have an app drawer. MIUI was ported from a Chinese rom so of you get bored of the stock feeling it's worth a try
