that is the question.. i have been reading some of the issues people are having with their phones after installing custom roms. should i, or shouldn't i? what exactly does the custom rom do for you? if it is just a matter of changing the appearance of your phone then i will stick with ADW launcher. also, i would like to know if anyone knows how to change the color of the status bar (droid x) without having to install a custom rom. is there some kind of free program? thanks for the insight.
