    Alright guys, Ive pretty much decided to go back to froyo. When my gf is runing a lithiummod rom from like a year ago, and runs smoother than my perfectly tweaked GB rom, its pretty irritating. I needed to check something online, so I grabbed my gfs phone, and pulled up the browser. I was absolutly shocked, becasue I remembered, that droids can actually go on the internet, and not crash constantly! Using my GB rom phone, it CONSTANTLY CRASHES. I am currently using SS5.2, and its super unstable, probably have to reset it at LEAST 2 times a day. LGB is a ton more stable, but the lack of Lock in Memory is causes aps to get killed as soon as they are in the background, so things like music apps are impossible. Liquid s supposedly adding that option in, but honestly with how insane the task killer is, only being able to lock in 5 apps is a pain in the ass, because it kills EVERYTHING. Honestly, like shouldnt GB be better, not worse? Is there anyway to import the task killer from Froyo to GB.

    Pretty much what im saying is Ill give 1.9 a try, but probably going to wind up back on froyo. Theres only 2 things. 1 when I have tried it so far to switch to froyo, using titanium doesnt work for the data for a lot of apps. Does data work different on froyo then it did in GB? 2. Which rom should I switch to, and why

    I was in the same situation as you. Reverted back to froyo. Then was irked on how slow froyo was at times. I'm currently using project elite v6 beta and I'm quite pleased so far. Id give that a try before ruling out GB...

    Hmmm.... all the froyo talk made me wonder...
    So I dug up a lfy1.96 boy did it bring back memories....

    Issues in the tibu, launcher and market. Pulled new market, lpplus and tibu from new builds and reflashed. No such luck.
    Looks as if the apps have progressed past froyo. Launcher pro was the only app that took after the reflash.

    Maybe a froyo ROM based off the lasted FR897 (or what ever its up to now) is needed.

    I sticking with LGB as it runs perfect on my D1 stock as Liquid builds..

    Hmmm? LFY2.0 ?

    I have never restored app data when flashing from ROM to ROM, and I have never had a problem. You should NOT do that. Do a CLEAN install.

    I'm running SS 5.2, and it's the most stable my phone has ever been. The ONLY issue I have is video capture is a little choppy sometimes. Other than that, perfect.

    after getting used to LGB and all the amazing features it was nice. then after so many crashes I got fed up and restored my old sapphire. yeah it was a night and day difference. even on the stock clock it was ridiculously faster. I probably will never go back to gingerbread. now if we could get a LFY with all the LGB extra scripts and settings that would be amazing. I haven't played with another rom with all the features LGB has.

    I was actually just thinking about going back to the final LFY ROM and came across this thread. Other than battery life I think LFY 1.9 was the stablest ROM i've ever used. I would love to have seen development continue on that but I can understand why they didn't.

    I would definitely like to go back to it but you guys are saying titanium backup data will not restore from GB to Froyo? That would put a halt to that in a hurry hehe.

    I believe Droid Concepts is still working on another Froyo build. ProjectGimp just teamed up with them, I believe.

    I don't really want to switch off liquid personally, I love his ROMs and if I switched back to Froyo it would be back to LFY. His GB ROM is good, just not quite as stable as LFY was... I get the impression reading around that its still the best GB ROM around, the issues are GB limitations not liquids.

    I don't understand this thread.

    Liquid GB has never crashed on me once. What do you people do to run into so many problems? I understand a bug here or there because technically Gingerbread doesn't exist for the OG Droid, but that's the risk of upgrading to an OS not meant for these phones.

    I've never had the phone slow down either. I make sure to keep it basic and clean only having about 8 shortcuts on my main screen with power controls on top and launcher pro dock on bottom. I also disable everything until needed that way nothing is running in the background. And I also don't use live wallpapers.

    At this point I could never go back to Froyo.
