    Just to be straight. There is sholes that has the smoked glass theme that comes from Adamz ROM. So there maybe a difference and hence the question. Maybe it should be which is better Smoked Glass (by Adamz), Sholes, or BB. I personally wouldn't know since I have only used Smoked Glass by Adamz and all I got to say is I don't need to look anywhere else.

    I like Bugless Beast better. The launcher kept force closing on me in Smoked Glass. If the launcher didn't fc I might switch back. Anyone else have this problem?

    I don't use the launcher in Smoked Glass, I don't use the Home screen either (Home++). Loaded up Smoked Glass 4.1 just now, with the Taz kernel for TempMonitor app that reads CPU temps.

    Loving it so far. :)

    FYI, Bugless Beast 7.5 released also has the Taz kernel for CPU temps, so it's just a preference whether to go with Smoked Glass or Bugless Beast ROMs.

    Once I renamed Launcher2 to :Launcher2.bak and never had to worry about it's FCs, SG4.0 has been UNBELIEVABLE!

    I agree with this person. I find the real smoked rom from adamz to be superior to both sholes and bb. Super fast silky smooth, zero fc's for me but i use the 2.0.1 app tray so that might help. add in a taz kernel..... hands down winner I'd say. Most people having errors probably didn't follow instructions and format system or restore correctly.

    I had this problem all the time and that was the only reason I switched to it. I just put the new version (02/10/10) and I've only got one FC from a couple hours of having it on my phone. Looks like it has been improved.

    I've always used Smoked Glass because of the theme. Can I ask what the difference is between the two besides the theme? They both seem to have the almost the same features

    I run smoked glass, and that's the end of it for me. No need to look for anything else.

    I personally use Bugless Beast 7.5, but I don't think there is a dime's worth of difference. They are all good now.
