    I recently got a thunderbolt and this is my first foray into the world of android. Could you clarify what these terms in bold mean for an android n00b please.

    Sure.

    Sense = The UI that comes with your Thunderbolt.
    Senseless = The UI removed from the ROM. Usually replaced with another interface such as Launcher Pro, ADW, and Go EX for instance.
    Froyo = The Android version that comes with your Thunderbolt.
    Gingerbread = The next Android version coming out.
    AOSP = In short it means the ROM is based off the Android source code.

    correct me if I'm wrong, but:

    Senseless sounds like just a different skin for the way the OS works, but otherwise identical

    Froyo = Android 2.2
    Gingerbread = Android 2.3.3
    Honeycomb = Android 3

    Meaning if a ROM is Froyo, they used this basic architecture but with some slight deviation

    AOSP = Android Open Source Project ? Meaning they took the code and went AWOL with it and now it's something else entirely, like how we have so many different versions of linux.

    Hey Demo Man, thanks for the nice list! Can you please separate the ROMs into Sense and No Sense? (Or at least clearly label them as such)

    For people like me, I would like to see what ones have the HTC Widgets, etc. vs. the ones that do not. It looks like all of the ones currently have HTC Sense on them, though some are labeled "Senseless" or "de-sensed." I can basically figure out what is what currently, just perhaps and easier listing order or a "Sense = Yes/No" label would be helpful.

    That is something I am working towards is having things a bit more separated. Your ideas are certainly giving me some thought towards how to work this out as well in conjunction with how I'm visioning things myself. Thank you very much for your feedback. dancedroid

    For the people who have flashed different roms on their TB which one did you have you had the best battery life with? yeah yeah yeah I know about all the threads/ issues everyone has with the battery life, and how every phone is different. But I want to try one out, but I don't want to start off having with my new rom with really bad battery life.

    I was in the same boat as you, only I also wanted to keep Sense. My current ROM is Lightning Rom (full, not lite). It removes most bloatware and uses adrynelene's(sp) kernel. I installed SetCPU and put a screen off profile and get close to 20 hours on moderate use on 3G only connection.

    In most cases, as long as the ROM removes bloatware, the only thing that matters is the kernel... you can typically load a ROM and then flash the kernel of your choice after flashing the ROM.

    Cool. I have been thinking about either Lightning or VirusROM. Now I guess I just need to figure out which one
