    I've been using cushzero's newest 2.3.7 with deprimed latest kernel at 1000 for awhile now, runs great on my OG. Very smooth and quick. Now I'm on the latest ICS build, also suprises me how good it runs for still being alpha, and especially no hardware acceleration. Actually runs better than a lot of gingerbread roms

    I wish SS5.6 ran better on my droid, this replacement droid hates all of chevy's work sadly enough.

    But I am so excited for a stable ICS we are indeed so close! The D1 is truly an amazing device :biggrin:

    You aren't the first I've heard about. I guess SS is hit and miss. If it works its top of the line, if not well I feel bad because it's a goid and fast obe (for me). I am using stock settings on it too.

    I've been experimenting with gingerbread ROMs after running Project Elite for a long time. My phone seems to be able to handle gingerbread no problem with regard to performance, etc, but every single GB ROM I've tried has been buggy with respect to 3g/network connectivity. I'm currently running Liquid 3.2 and it is doing it. This is unacceptable to me, so I guess I will be flashing Steel today.

    Did you do anything special like change the kernal or clock speed? Because 5.6 was really laggy for me, I kind of want to try it again but I don't know what I can possibly do to make it faster. did you use the supercharger script?

    I'm surprised no one mentioned Sourcery in this thread. Best Froyo based rom IMHO. Link in my sig if anyone what to give it a run.

    Yeah, Sourcery is a classic. It was my daily driver for a good period, too. If I can't find a GB rom that does it for me, I may go back to it. I installed Steel 9 today and am liking it so far. I haven't been using it long enough to know if it is just going to start choking on the data connections like the other GB roms, though. So I am in wait and see mode on it.

    My vote goes to droid concepts 13. Updated froyo and you can customize the theme to your liking. The devs are awesome guys too.

    Thanks to everyone who posted. I recently rooted my Droid and was looking for a good ROM. This has been my experience so far:

    Stock Froyo: Wanted more customization, faster, better battery life, etc

    Cyanogenmod 7.1.0: LOVED the interface, wasn't a ton faster, no difference in battery life. Could not get over the ringer/vibrate issues for notification, had to switch.

    GPA18: Didn't thrill me. Looks just like Froyo. Gave it a day and several reboots, but it was no faster than stock Froyo. Also had the ringer/vibrate issue.

    Project Elite 4.2: Really impressed. Super fast and excellent battery life. No ringer/vibrate issues-works just like stock Froyo w/ additional "Silent" mode on rocker, which I consider an improvement. Fair amount of customization (no CM7), but still plenty to play with. Once and a while the dock freaks out on me, but nothing a restart won't fix.

    Im still a noob too. Tried Liquid 3.2 for my first ROM. now Im using SS 5.6 and loving it. battery life is much, much improved. All phones are different, but from a guy that bleeds Ford blue, my phone likes ChevyNo1. :biggrin:

    I would go for Steel Droid v10 when it is released next month since ChevyCam is probably the only dev that is still updating and supporting the OG.

    Hey guys!

    Haven't posted in this forum in a while. I've been keeping up with the ICS thread over at XDA. It's looking so promising! I even took a test drive on it. I really didn't want to go back to a GB rom again, but the ICS rom had some problems, like the phone and camera. If you guys want to take a look, you can either go to the original forum from kfazz from the firs link, or you can look at the one on droidforums (which has the most updated links in one spot).

    All props to kfazz for doing such an amazing thing thus far!
    and Metalspring for helping out :D

    Before I got my Bionic, I liked project elite a lot. But I was mostly on CM7 and Bugless Beast.
