    Have you tried it out? Is it nice and stable? I downloaded boosted ICS today, haven't flashed it yet because leftspin commented how its not a good daily rom yet.

    This ROM is stable and definitely would be good to use as a daily driver. It's GB not ICS but I ran the old VorteX several months ago and I remember it being very nice.

    I'll have to check it out. I really want a stable ICS build though.

    How's the battery life on this one? I am using the latest CM7 build now and am hating the battery life I'm getting.

    MOD edit: sig removed.

    The more I use the CM7 rom I'm currently on, the more I want to try this one. 17% of my battery in an hour! I could last two days on stock/rooted with my extended battery.

    VorteX has always been notorious as a great battery life ROM. Shaggy, it looks like your browser and/or computer has been infected with some kind of spambot malware.

    Are you referring to my signature? It's not a spam.

    However if I'm not allowed to advertise it like that I will remove it.

    If you check the site out though it is 100% legit. Backed by site-lock on a daily basis and they don't ask for phone number, credit card or anything like that.

    You should remove it as per forum rules.

    Just flashed VXR and I love it so far!

    Also I'm not sure if CM7 was reading my battery wrong but before I flashed it read 50% battery and after it read 90%. Kinda odd but who knows. I'll write up a full review once I get my apps all loaded up again.

    That's common when you switch ROMs. Whenever I install something new I let the battery die completely, then charge it all the way back up to 100% and wipe the battery stats. There are also battery calibrator apps on the market that basically do the same thing.

    Well I'm gonna try to let it die out tonight before I go to bed so I can have it full charge over night. Then I can truly assess how fast it drains.

    This is a nice and simple rom. Not too many ways to customize.

    I wish I could have CM7's customization with VXR's performance and battery life.

    Yes like leftspin said the battery thing happens sometimes going from one rom to another. If you charge your battery to 100% before installing a rom you can avoid that from happening. I usually charge it up and keep it plugged in while installing another rom that way it stays fully charged.

    Keeping it plugged in while you're in CWM installing the ROM doesn't do anything because the phone won't charge in recovery or bootloader, but you've got the right idea.

    Yeah after it gets to 100% i just keep it plugged in the whole time going from one rom to another and just stay plugged in while im restoring everything on the new rom and once im done i unplug it and its always at 100% at that point .

    I ran vortex for a good 3-4 months I think. In the end, when attaching pictures to MMS could no longer read text and would require a reboot to fix. Gtalk always worked fine though. Aside from that never had many issues and as mentioned here, it has spectacular battery performance. I will definitely keep this rom on my radar but I'm too in love with SteelDroid right now to try anything else!! <3

    A data wipe or reinstall probably would have fixed that, although I guess that really doesn't matter now haha. The only issue I ever had with VorteX was that the stock theme was hideous. Steel Droid is (IMO) the best GB ROM available for the Droid X

    I flashed the ICish vortex theme but not too fond of bright colors so I doubled it with a go launcher dark steel theme. Made for a very sleeking looking theme :)
