    Same. I've been with GB for the last couple months, and I'm finally sick of it. I just want my phone to work from now on lol. I tried sourcery yesterday, and omg is it amazing. I love it aha :D

    Ditto for me. Ran GB for 2 - 3 months. Switched back to SS 4.96 two days ago. It was like a new phone all over again!!

    Man, I hope u guys at least gave SS 5.2 a fair chance. I know GB isn't for everyone but that ROM is amazing for GB

    Sent from my Droid using TapatalkOh god I'm doomed to only accept the best in the way of roms now. Its just like music I guess... once you here the good stuff you can't turn back lmao

    And jimmy, I've used ss 5.2 since 2 days after it came out. Its the nicest GB rom out, but it still sucks. Grab a friends phone or flash yours to froyo for a day or two. Its much more stable. Sure, having the latest and greatest is fun, but for a lot of us being a phone comes first, and tweaking second. SS 5.2 would reboot during phone calls and such sometimes. It just wasn't for me.

    Sorry but if someone's OG Droid just absolutely can't have Gingerbread on it, then its something YOU are doing that's the problem. Regardless if it was meant for the OG or not, it works and it works with far better results than froyo. I've built a 2.3 ROM that worked flawlessly on the HTC Droid Eris of all phones, I know that GB can be stable on the OG. If it can work on the Eris, it can definitely work on the OG. My OG has been running CM7 has not had an issue that wasn't easily fixed, as a matter of fact it only had 1 issue which was fixed just by reflashing. Someone saying that GB sucks and no one should ever use it, is just stating their opinion, NOT a fact. It works fine for me and tons of other people, so obviously its not the ROM that's an issue. Could also be the device, could even be the operator.

    SS 5.2 is what pulled me back in and I'm loving it so far! Let's see if I notice any issues or not after a few days. I'm keeping my fingers crossed

    That's really interesting. I knew kernels respond differently, but I didn't know ROM's could react differently also. Thanks for educating me UNC and thanks to a couple others for convincing me to not throw in the towel. SS 5.2 was my last shot and so far it's running great. Of course now w/ this info from UNC if I have problems w/ it and I"m still hell-bent on GB I guess I'll have to try something else!

    UNC, have you always had problems w/ Pete's roms or just this one?

    Wow, I'm not sure I ever gave that one a shot. I guess I'll have to put it on the list if SS has any problems w/ my phone. Thanks guys!
