    If you want BB's features stay. If you like stock, then migrate.

    My Opinion:

    STAY on 6.2.1.

    I've run stable gpa14, and many of the "nightly" gpa15 builds. Apparently the gpa15 stable build is no different from the last night beta Pete put out. Nothing against his abilities, I think its just GB thats the problem. 3g not coming back after making a call is a real annoying bug that hopefully is address by 2.3.4 update. That would definitely be the biggest problem and in my opinion makes it simply not worth it to go to something that doesnt work flawlessly / snappy. I am about ready to go back to 6.2.1, even after trying stable CM7, as I find no reason to use a phone ROM that is slower and riddled with small bugs (as mentioned) in comparison to a previous ROM like 6.2.1 that is snappy and "bugless".

    I'd suggest sticking to whats been working out for you. You wont see anything special in the GB ROM. Since 2.3.4 is already out, expect to see gpa16 come out based on that most recent update and hopefully these known issues with improve across the custom ROM builds of GB.

    It's Bugless Beast, Pete's final Froyo rom before he started working on the GPA builds.

    I love 6.2.1 as well. The only issue that I have with it is the google maps app crashes when typing in a destination. I travel a lot and rely heavily on the navigation. My main reason for looking around at other roms.

    One of my buddies was having the same issue using a different ROM. I uninstalled/reinstalled Maps and the issue hasn't occured since. Give that a try if you haven't already.

    I'm thinking of going back to BB myself. Too many weird glitches with both GB ROMs I've used (CM7 and GPA15).

    Bugless uses the more stable Froyo kernel. Unfortunately, it's 2.2.1, not 2.2.2, so there is a known, fairly serious SMS bug in it...

    yea i just had to switch back as well. been on the stable GPA15 for about a week but weird issues starting happening again, like with all the previous GPA builds. 3G would disappear and not come back until you switch airplane mode on and off, or using some other method to toggle data. this happens to me a lot because i take the subway that goes underground. 3G doesn't come back after the phone reacquires signal. battery levels are also off. just got a random reboot today.

    GPA15 has the 3G data bug fixed. Believe me. I just stood on line at AAC to buy Mavericks tickets while calling on the phone nonstop with Google Voice. It's FIXED!
