    Should i bother upgrading? Does it speed things up? whats with allthe different versions i really cant figure out what the benefits are to upgrading every 2 days. Though I appreciate the creators hard work.


    Also. What is the deal with the legit 2.1 release? Is it as good?

    7.8 is a ESE53 base or software version... 9.0 is an ERE27 (nexus one) software base.

    9.0 is the best rom out imo.... do it and you won't be sorry...

    just make sure you wipe data and do a factory reset first.

    9.0 is three times as smooth when scrolling, pinching to zoom etc... you guys will love it.

    7.8 is the best of that iteration. But 9.0 is just so far ahead of it. Trust me. I flashed a backup of 7.8 yesterday out of boredom and was blown away by the differences.

    There seem to be a lot of issues listed in the 9.0 thread though, I have zero issues with 7.8 right now. Have they all been sorted out?

    Different base. You WILL have major issues if you do not wipe. You will lose messages, but not photos, contacts, emails, etc.

    I'd bet 99.999% are user error. Don't get me wrong, 7.8 is a good ROM. I'd probably still be happy with it if 9.0 hadn't come out. Luckily you didn't jump on version 8.

    yes I agree, 99% of any issues are due to someone not following the directions of wiping and clearing the data....

    9.0 rocks!
    i used to have problems with reboots with past UD roms when using metamorph to theme but with 9.0 that has been solved.

    Im hearing "9 is amazing" but nobody is saying how

    What exactly makes it superior to 7.8?
