    okay so i have the original motorola droid that i bought when they came out. i rooted it when it was still running 2.0. I upgraded to 2.1 using a custom rom and not the verizon update. I am currently running one of the early versions of ultimate droid.

    I am ready for something new and am tired of this one.

    My question is what would be the general consensus on the best one to go with? I see there are tons of ones here but i know you all have your favorites. I would like to have something thats fairly stable

    All help appreciated. thanks

    so far the one thats running the best on my phone is LithiumMod. Running coolest, battery life is good and very stable and fast.

    my advice is pick your tope 3 ROM's and run them each for at least a week before deciding which one to stick with. try it with the packaged kernel because other kernels may negatively effectthe ROM before you get a good feel of the ROM...after a few days you can try other kernels for the ROM

    Good luck

    I switched to Liquid last week and have been very happy with it.

    if you like blackdroid's roms check out UD extreme 7.0

    If you want a really good rom I suggest sapphire .8.4 or 1.0 both are good a lot of people are digging 1.0 but I had issues with that one not having the Dark Edge or Drop theme. Better battery life on 1.0 and a 1ghz overclocked CPU with built in CPU set speed.

    Check it out cvpcs - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum
    Sapphire also has a IRC channel so you get fast support if you have any problems.

    Try UD's roms. They are packed to the gills with cool little tweaks that make using the Rom (and themes) a real source of enjoyment.

    UD 7 + 800 kernel + Luna Theme = The BOMB.

    (yea 800 is low but I really don't see the need to go higher. I used to run only 1200 but i dont care)

    And Liquid Frozen Yogert and Litihum Mod aren't battery hogs like UD, Cyano, and Simply Stunning seem to be for me personally....
