    Anyone else still rocking this rom? This is the only rom I've ever ran, and the only phone I have rooted. Unlike most of the others on this forum, I don't have the time to be looking for the latest and greatest rom every week, so I picked one and went with it. I'm not so excited about Gingerbread which looks like bait to get people to download an attempt to curtail rooting of their phones. I hear from many people how Gingerbread is faster, video is better. I'm not having trouble with video now, so why does it need to be faster, so when I'm in a hurry I can watch it in fast foreward? I just feel like ranting about the rom of the month club mentality around here. Everybody talks up a rom and two days later they are running something else. Stop spending so much time working on your phone and enjoy it, like me. I let my rom burn in good and focused on the apps to do what I need, and enjoy. I am still running a Froyo Based Squidlymandingo 2.3.20.2 with a few select apps and I have no issues at all! No offence intended, just sayin.

    Well, you may not have time for it, but a lot of us do. I've been on CM7 for a little while now. Either way, GB is supposed to upgrade your kernal and radio.

    I was like you for many moons, until my D2 had a seizure about a week ago. My latest Nandroid backup was about a month old, and my phone had been kinda pissing me off for a while anyway. That night I went home, read up on all things ROM, GB, ROM-flashing and the like, and took the plunge.

    Now I'm running the rooted GB leak, and it's wonderful. My phone feels new again - everything is significantly faster and more responsive, my battery lasts longer, and the interface is prettier on top of it all. While I may not have the time/patience for weekly ROM-flashing, I think it's important to change your phone up a little every now and again to keep things interesting. Even if it's some new widgets, a new wallpaper or even something like a new ROM.
