    Hey guys!So I'm still rocking with my Project Elite ROM right now, but I'm kinda getting bored with it. I know the Pre-Pre-Alpha for the ICS is out, but there are so many updates and such, which just makes me want to wait for the beta stage.I've tried out the MIUI rom, but wasn't diggin' the "iPhone" look. And most of the lockscreens on it are in Chinese, which, no offense, turns me off, since I can't understand it.Can you guys help me out with which ROM to get? And can you also leave me some reasons why it's a good ROM to get?Thanks :D~Jin

    If people are wondering, I'm flashing ChevyNo1 SS 5.6

    Let you guys know if it's good or not :)

    This feels funny, commenting on my own thread. But for those still reading, Chevy's ROM felt sluggish on my droid, and I didn't like the transitions and such.

    Any other ROMs suggested guys?

    I would stick with Froyo for the OG. Try Droid Concepts build 13. Thats my favorite rom for the OG.

    This was my daily driver for a long time. 5.6 never played n nice on my phone. 5.5 is flawless. Be sure to ramp up the cpu it's set to 600 by default. Push it to 1000 and disable compcache.

    I am running verrrrry good with Project Elite 4.2
    Good memory with it ( + supercharger)
    Very fast, stable, smooth, custom Raidzero kernel by dfabbeb - OC'd at 1.1 GHz - Interactive gov. (Runs very cool with his set voltage values)

    If your looking for a stable/smooth gingerbread rom, i recommend using SS 5.5 (not 5.6 <-- that version is very buggy)
    Liquid runs great, however it gets too many lockups, freezes, and the camera is horrible and the theme.

    I never really liked SimplyStunning 5.6 (felt laggy to me too and had a few bugs with my camera and phone) so I was using SS5.5 before I got my Galaxy Nexus. IMHO, SS5.4 was the smoothest of his ROMs. There's also CyanogenMod7, which SS was built off of. I tried Sourcery when it first emerged last January, but it was still new and it had some bugs, so I went back to SS. (His roms were some of the first ones I ran and always seemed to cooperate best with my phone, so I was a little biased) However, toward the end of my D1's run, I heard good things about Sourcery 2.2... And now that my D1 isn't my daily driver anymore, I think I'll throw it on my D1 to see how far it's come. Also always kinda wanted to try LithiumMod, just never got around to it. From what I can tell, he just posted his latest release (Lithium NextGen v0.0.5) in November, so I would expect it's still being supported.

    ALrighty,
    SS 5.6 wasn't good, cuz of the bug that I experienced. I'm going to try another one, called Steel Droid, and I'll let you guys know if it's good or not. Do you guys have the links for SS 5.5 and that Droid Concepts build? I guess today I'm just going to fool around with everything :D

    Steel Droid looks really good so far. There's a lot of features that resemble ICS (which is from GO Launcher). I might stick with this one :D

    I find it pretty smooth. It's really custom-able and such. :D

    Miui.us is one of the best rom out there. We have a thread for english themes. I ve been using miui.us as my daily rom. I don't have issues with it. ICS alpha is super fast too.

    Steel Droid 9 has been my daily since it came out. Few random bugs once in a great while but it runs soooooo much better than any other rom currently. So, good choice. Miui does rule but unfortunately my phone is not running the recent builds too great, not to mention how little memory (ram) is available on average.

    MIUI runs good at first but after a while when it settles, it starts lagging pretty bad.

    Steel Droid 9 and CushZero have been the two most stable roms for me at least in the recent months. Liquid's last rom for the D1 and SS 5.6 have been laggy with poor reception and running hot. and Froyo is honestly hard to go back too after being on GB for so long.

    I've only ever tried Liquid, UD, and Project Elite on my D1.
    My fave is, was, and always will be UD 2.5.0 . I was incredibly sad to see that dev stopped on Ultimate Droid so soon and abruptly.

    After flashing constantly on mine over the years, and running Gingerbread (from every ROM cooker i could find), it just didn't cut the mustard. Back on Froyo for me, been on PE4.2 iirc for a few months and it's not great but nothing else is better anymore with the devs gone.

    Glad my Dinc2 comes tomorrow.
