    Sourcery huh? Ill have to look into that because now that im back, all the cool stuff that existed back then have dead link to the files that were uploaded. Themes, original apps, custom docks that I find are usually dead.

    Im not gunna be like everyone else and agree, but i have to agree with GB roms tripping on the Droid. HOWWEEEVER, I flashed Liquid's new rom last night and I must say, IT IS FLY! I think it's worth the shot. It is working ALOT better than UD, PE, BB, ZZ, XX, TT, YY and all the GB roms created. I appreciate the work everyone has done, but maybe my phone likes Liquid.

    I think you just did :)

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not busting on the ROM, I love 3.3.1 and all that it brings. And I think the OP is just sad that he had to give up on GB, I know I will miss it terribly. I am just having too many little issues that I really didn't experience under froyo. For example, I use swype as my keyboard. Tried all the others and it's the best for me. Anyway, the swype feature (which is why I use it) goes away after a few days and I'm hunting and pecking like a standard keyboard until I uninstall/reinstall. Not a biggee, but doing it twice a week really sucks.

    UD is where my phone grew up for just over a year now. I have seen a lot come into development like the whole couple weeks of ROM manager. I cannot find another ROM that has the custom settings like UD. Its the most intuitive for me.

    I have a few bugs with 2.5 and I am more happy with old school than GB but I guess the grass is always greener for me. lol...

    Did you only use UD? You should try another rom like CM7. CM7 has the latest and greatest and seems to run the best. I haven't had a single problem with it. I am running my own custom build of it so I have a few of my own custom changes.

    Out of all the GB Roms i tried UD was the least buggy but went back to Froyo pretty quickly.

    Well for the time being at least Im saying goodbye to UD, it may sound stupid & be a trivial issue especially since he does this all for free for us UD followers, but the lack of communication, updates, anything that comes from the UD team is minmal at best, & even going to his facebook page u will find mixed emotions as well, from people praising the rom (which i did to) to people asking for thier money back who had signed up & donated to getting the "nightlies" that by some peoples account have now turned into "monthlys" but again one must remeber he does do this for free & i cant even imagine the hours that go into development, but Im a people person & his seemingly lack of respect & communication to at the very least to those who have donated I dont understand, even at his "home" forum is there very rarely a post or update from him, much less here. Again I will say that I know he does this for free, & I agree some of the releases are excellent, & Im sure he is now bizzy updating it to 2.3.4 & I know that when a new release comes out I know I will give it a try & hopefully it will be as good as back to 2.5 standards & greatness....

    I never did understand the nightlies for a fee. I mean, they all got rolled up into a free version of the ROM eventually, you just needed to wait a week or two ... or three :)

    But since I own the D1 and there are so many new phones/pads with much more capacity to exploit, I can't imagine many good developers hanging tight and supporting their older platforms forever. They've moved on, at least that's how it appears to me, and maybe they will have an opportunity to make some money in the future with what they've learned to date. I'm just not going to spend much $$ jazzing up a phone that isn't being supported by the manufacturer any more and I doubt the developers are going to spend much time either.

    I just put 2.5 back on, with a solid kernel and I'm trying to tweak the look with a theme and some metamorph files. This was the last stable (on my droid anyway) rom and I like the customization it provides. And, I have all that was broke from 3.0 on working again. Still hate the "Emergency Calls Only" on the lock screen though. :blink:

    Going back to stock???...seriously??? While you're at it, whip out those 8-tracks and platforms. C'mon. These devs deserve massive props. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that a Froyo ROM will be the most stable. But Gingerbread ROMs are almost as good and you're running the latest-n-greatest...ultimate bragging rights. Android 2.3.4 on an OG Droid!!! It's crazy. Cyanogen is a good baseline, but Liquid is the ultimate dev and his ROM support is second to NONE. So put the crack pipe down and don't give up just yet...there's a ROM with your name on it.
