    There is no best ROM. Different phones react differently to different ROMS.

    Like titans said there is no best rom, every phone reacts different and everyone has different tastes, however the rom I like the most by far is liquid frozen yogurt because of how smooth it runs and how great the battery life is.

    OK titans can we try to be a little more helpful for the ones seeking information? He was speaking specifically about Droid X. All Droid X should react the same to a ROM with the same settings. Problem is that not everyone sets their settings the same.

    So to you rcjames, you need to read in the ROMs section for Droid X and see what everyone has to say and take a look at the features and settings that the ROMs have. What you consider to be the best ROM others may not. It is all a matter of personal preference. Read what other users have to say about each of the individual ROMs. That would be the best way to see which ROM meets your needs. Happy ROM hunting.

    Well the fact is, is what I said. Don't ask me why, but it is a known fact that ROMs will react differently to different phones. Just look at a developer's rom thread. Some people will say they have great battery life, some say they have terrible battery life with the same settings. Some people say it's fast, some people say it's slow. People have used the same settings as me on a ROM I will not name, it was fast for them, wasn't for me. That's just how it works. The majority of users will find the ROM working a certain way, and a small percentage of users will have their problems. His first post was "What was the best rom" not "What is the rom you like", so I based my response off that. He edited it after.

    LOL yeah I knew it I just was not sure you were aware of it. No there is not an all in one thread and that is probably not a good Idea. How would you keep things straight when people started asking questions about differend ROMs if you had all the ROMs bunched up in a single thread? See where I am going with that? The best that can be done is put them all in a single topic as they have done here. There is a lot of good info here and by the looks of it you got plenty of reading to do so charge up your battery and get comfortable. (if your reading this on your DX that is)

    So what rom do you like and why?

    Okay :) All i want is just you'rs and people opinion of their rom that they use that they like. That's what its about. Sure if me or other have question we'll either ask here/or a thread created of that rom or a thread that is related to that rom. Sorry about all in one, all in one will just bloat this thread and hard to keep up and understand.

    My favorite ROM

    I'm partial to rubiX Focused 1.0. It's a ROM that completely eliminates blur and provides a simple vanilla android expirence the way the droid x should have been. It's also the FASTEST ROM I've ever loaded, makes me finally feel like the phone is taking advantage of it's 1Ghz chip

    The two very best ROMS right now for the Droid X are without a doubt Fission 1.1 and Rubix 1.0!!!


    Of course, these are only the best if you don't want any BLUR whatsoever on your device like many of us.

    If you do like blur, I would have to say that Rubix 0.3 Blurry is your best bet!



    Remember, Fission 1.1 and Rubix 1.0 are the closest thing to real, full custom ROMS that we have for the Droid X. They both effectively get rid of absolutely ALL Motorola junk and allows you to start from a purely bone stock Android 2.2 Froyo base. Of course, Rubix 1.0 has been tweaked out a lil bit by DRod2169! However, Fission 1.1 has been deodexed and zip aligned as well!

    I like rubiX with some Blur to go with it. Optimized and you can hardly tell difference from usual setup.

    I believe ApeX is the current best ROM for my needs. It's fast, efficient, and has great battery life. I currently have it undervolted and underclocked, and I am still getting quadrants around 1650.

    It's an excellent and efficient ROM. On top of all that, Fab is an excellent developer and gives you access to all components that you may want to add back into the ROM to fully customize it to your liking.

    I agree with you... I have a nandroid back up of the focused 1 and blur and when ever I feel that rom is lagging I swith. I like apex the most becuase I feel it more clean and custum. I like some blurr but not all.

    My second option would be RB 1 if the fm radio turner could work there it will have serius competition with the apex to invade my phone. I do use the turner and well I feel that is one of the features that put the dx ahead of the crowd
