    technically your stock rom is still custom, but its definitely to your liking. ive found that so far, my stock ese81 rom is the best compared to SS v3.0 and CyanogenMod 5.0.5.6. these roms are so kick ass, but theyre just not up to par with what i like. id rather get my stock rom to how I like it. my stock rom is overclocked with chevyz 1.1GHz kernal and so far it seems smoother and faster then the both ese81 roms ive tried. and faster than the ese53 ones too. so for the people that want to know which is better between stock and custom. id go with stock, then you can customize it.

    I just went back to stock last night from CyanogenMod because of the MMS video bug and my notification LED quit working. I loved the ROM and I may go back to it once that is fixed but everything on the stock ROM just runs so much smoother, even the haptic feedback seems to respond better.

    Everyone has an opinion.. but as the ROMs thus far have been based on partial or uncertified updates perhaps future dealings will produce a change in opinion

    Erm.... Chevys Kernel, I assume you are using a recovery, and have SU permissions... so tell me how this is stock?

    Different strokes for different folks, I wanted features like VPN and Wifi Tethering out of my ROM, I also love the customization I get with Cyanogen, to each his own.

    I understand what the OP is saying. I want a ROM personalized to my tastes. I don't know how to cook a ROM but everything I want to do I can do on top of the stock ROM. Root, Updated kernal for OC and tether, htc keyboard, etc... What you wind up with is far from stock but it's not a "custom ROM" either.

    I'm not sure what you mean, what you are describing is a "custom rom".

    "Stock" 2.1 rooted with over-clocking kernal > any rom out there at the moment.

    Why? Faster and has less bugs.

    You can install that stuff on your own. They're just normal .apk files.

    No, CM goes deeper than that. VPN and wifi tethering requires kernel support, as well.

    For instance, no stock ROM out there can give you the option to have your LED work for notifications while the screen is on in 2.1. Nor do they add sound events to screen touches. Nor do they add usb tethering, or apps2sd. None give the option to change your LED for missed call events, or even for paused songs. None will allow you to skip songs with the volume button. I could go on , but the points been made.

    It all ends up being personal preference as already stated.

    Is there a custom Rom/App combo that allows you to change songs via the Volume button? It would be super helpful to me for when I'm using my phone as mp3 player in my pocket.

    You're wrong. A lot of kernel mods have to happen for this to occur, hence when the Droid first got rooted people were trying to get the wifi tethering app to work but couldn't.

    Question...I'm thinking of using Pete's stock 2.1, has anyone tried using Chevy's low voltage kernel with it? Also you think I'll have any bugs if I am using BB.9 2.1right now and just go straight to the stock 2.1?

    @ demonhawk, no apps that I know of, only the cyanogen rom has that feature.

    The title of this thread is misleading considering the op is talking about a custom rom he made and not the stock phone. Maybe it should be called "my custom rom is adequate or comparable to other custom roms" haha

    "You can install that stuff on your own. They're just normal .apk files"

    Did you guys read what was posted? You can install a custom kernal therefore you can get WIFI tethering. I specifically mentioned an over-clocking kernal, if you can't install a custom kernal and over-clock then the roms are superior, if you can then the "stock" 2.1 vanilla rom is superior. WIFI tethering is just an .apk file, the first time I used it I installed it on my own, it wasn't included with the rom I had.

    I honestly have no idea what you're talking about. Most of that stuff is insignificant and is not a good trade-off for the amount of bugs you end up experiencing. The Apps2sd is experimental and barely works (breaks when you upgrade the rom, lots of other issues), you can skip songs with the volume button using certain music apps located in the market(Or at least I seem to remember there being an app that does that??), USB tethering is a free download in the market for even non-root users and always has been, etc.

    I consider Cyanogen to be the best over-all rom when it comes to actually adding new unique features but none of those features are important enough to me to sacrifice the superior speed and stability I could get elsewhere. For me all I care about is speed, stability, and customization, in that order. A basic rom that is fast, stable, and I can customize on my own is my preference.
