    He is saying there is no reason to use any 2.01 roms anymore, and is just gonna focus on this rom, so basically 1.2 is the final release. I really dont want jump into a .3 release. What do you guys think of the ERE25 roms out htere now, and how do you feel about them? I am completely happy with my 2.01 rom and my live firework wallpaper. What is so better in this.

    Agreed!

    I've been on v.1 since yesterday. Just upgraded to v.3. Loving it. Can't compare to 2.0.1 Rom, because I rooted to beta test (that's my excuse) his first 2.1 rom. Compared to that, this is mug improved. Snappier. Sexier. WAY better browser.

    These roms are based off a beta version o the update we were supposed to get instead of a bunch of stuff ported from the nexus one. They're more optimized for the Droid.

    Why NOT hop into a 2.1 rom? I realize the your v1.2 2.0.1 rom feels more stable than you think a v.3 can be, but those 2.0.1 roms have the ported stuff instead of droid-optimized stuff as far as I know.

    If you're gonna run a rom with the same stuff, why not use the one optimized for you phone? IMO.

    :D

    ERE25 Based ROMS are rock solid. If you're happy with 2.0.1 then stay with it but I can tell you that the differences are that it feels faster, smoother, and has basically has everything 2.0.1 has except it has the ability to natively run live wallpapers without doing any manual installing.

    So if stability is what your going for there really isn't any reason to stay with 2.0.1 other than your favorite ROM is only 2.0.1 based ATM, or you don't feel like upgrading your ROM lol. :)

    BTW Pete's v.3 ROM isn't the only one out there, Chevy has his Simply Stunning v2 ROM out as well as updated OC Kernels to run. It's what I'm running now :D

    I made the switch to a 2.1 ROM tonight as well. I chose Chevy's. I did have Pete's with Chevy's boot image which was ridiculously fast, because Pete's doesn't OC yet. But it broke my wi-fi so I went to Chevy's. Both of these are amazingly fast, don't think of it as a beta really, it is beta insofaras that it's just coming out, but the building blocks behind the dev's have been working with for awhile now. This is basically the same thing as going to stock when the OTA 2.1 updates come, then rerooting. This is the same update were going to get pretty much, and probably more because we are getting the stripped 2.1.

    But anywaysssss, yes, these things are fast and I'd say 95% stable.

    Pete's can be oc'd w Chevy's new kernels. There's a 900mhz and 1.2ghz. I've only tried 900, but the link to both is on Pete's alldroid thread about the new rom. As for wifie, mine worked fine on v.1. I'm at work now, where I flashed v.3, but Idk the password for the network here, so I can't say if v.3 broke widow. I imagine he'd have a fix fast as hell if it did...

    1.2 vs 0.3, etc....version # don't mean much here...Pete started a series of ROMs that are based on the newest leaked 2.1 for Droid and labeled them 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 and so on...

    Previous ones were based on Nexus/Desire 2.1, so version #s were different too...to keep track easier.

    So lower #s don't mean worse or older at all!!! It's a good thing as this ROM (0.3) is ROCK SOLID and super fast!!! Plus it has a better droid radio, which people have reported feedback of better call quality and reception. ;)

    I switched to Pete's ere25 tonight, and I gotta say, this ROM is hands down, the BEST most stable ROM I have ever used yet :)

    Seriously, that's all I'm saying

    The only thing Pete's ERE25 needs is the 7 homescreens from his last 2.1 roms.

    Anyway,


    the only threads in Chevy's forum for 1.25 gHz are for his SS ROMs. Can someone link to his 1.25 (or 1.2?) gHz kernel only? Thanks!

    I'm using the Smoked Glass Summerfish MM theme, it's designed for 2.0.1 but it's working fine on my ERE25 2.1 ROM.

    [2.0.1 ROM] w/ Summerfish Theme - Smoked Glass 4.5 Edit - Android Forums

    I think it's something along the lines of what you're looking for. The notification bar up top is black in this theme.

    Afraid she's only 1.1Ghz, but here you go. He's asking for testers in the thread that I got this from, so don't quote me as to whether it'll work or not...lol

    Let me know if it does though. I'm only running the new 900mhz because I had confirmation it works and I rarely go higher than 800, but it 1.1 works and works well, I might upgrade.

    I'm running chevy's ROM including his 1.25 ghz kernel, and I have no issues whatsoever... I had one hiccup with a video streaming but that may have been something else because I ran streaming video for half an hour yesterday with zero problems.

    Yea it might be a while before I switch, I think 1.1 is awesome, with adamz kernel, plus I have the dark rom patch utilizing 6 homescreens and the home++ launcher(which seems so much more stable installed in this patch) if you add that to my tweaks and changes I've done to the look of various .apk files I just don't want to sacrifice any of it or reinstall all of it to a new rom.

    I FINALLY got my droid EXACTLY the way I want it. So until some major things come out I'm gonna stick with a 2.0.1 build and say screw the updates.

    I used the link in Chevy's forum for his Kernel Testers thread, and SetCPU FC'ed on me the first time I tried to open it...but no more hiccups since. Running smoothly at 1.2 gHz.


    I'll update this if anything changes.

    My favorite theme, Flavored Ice, is only for 2.0.1.

    But hey, with the amazing performance and speed of this latest ROM from Pete, I couldn't not switch. I'll find a theme later, or learn how to edit the framework-res.apk in 2.1 myself.
