    I've actually been running it just over 24 hours now. It's very very nice. Just follow the instructions in the first post over there and you'll be fine. I must warn you that for the first few minutes that you've booted up, your phone is going to sync and it could go on for quite a while, because it tries installing your apps that you previously had downloaded in the market. So, if it really lags, don't say this ROM sucks. Give it a chance. If you're using ROM Manager, and if you flash to SPRecovery, make sure you do it minimum of 2x because many people are having issues flashing to SPR from CW. Below is some things I've been posting occasionally throughout the day as a reminder to people over there. Let me know how you like Froyo.

    [FONT=&quot]Things to remember with this release:[/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    You must have a rooted Droid to use this ROM

    [FONT=&quot]
    The initial install takes a few minutes, be patient, it will boot up. (Mine was like 4 mins.)

    Wifi and 3G now work...link: Froyo Overclocked Kernels includes *wifi* fix

    The first time you run this update.zip it will take several minutes to install.


    Follow the instructions like this: 1. Start with initial download; 2. Install the Flash .apk on your SD; 3. Install the P3Droid OC Kernal for WIFI and 3G and you’ll be all set.

    Those who are already rooted and saying "hey I lost SU", go to step #3 I described above.

    I had to run "Flash Alternate Recovery" twice before I could go back to SPRecovery from ROM Manager

    For those having problems with Titanium Backup. Install the newest version of Busybox, and you should be good to go

    If you have a fresh install and think your phone is really lagging badly, hang in there, it’s doing the sync of apps and contacts. Give it like 20 minutes and even at 800 mhz you will be amazed how snappy it becomes.

    Apps2sd and Google maps is apparently hit or miss

    Well, I don't know where your problems are coming from, but I'm not having any problems at all. Smooth as butter and benching like crazy!

    also, mine's done syncing, and it's still extremely slow unfortunately, though since i lost root, i can't oc obviously

    I installed Froyo and it's working perfectly. I OC'ed to 1.0GHz with SetCPU, set my profiles, and installed Flash. My apps, widgets, all is working good so far... It's very fast and smooth, me likes!

    I am in the same boat but has Pete even said that working 2.2 was his top priority? I think it is a bit crazy to jump on Froyo for a day or two until the bugs are discovered and worked out......
