    to many i think to list a poll considering people use old versions as well

    so what do you think is the best rom at the moment and why

    to qualify as one of the best it must be stable not a stable build but stable that theres not a crazy amount of force close or reboots and no other significant problems

    also post what kernel you are using with it

    Nah I take back everything I said about Bugless Beast....CyanogenMod is the best ROM I have ever had so far. Very glad koush built this ROM...cause now the Droid has official Cyanogen support!! Just happened today :)

    Pete's Bugless Beast 2.1 ERE25 Build v.4 is in my humble opinion the best thing that ever happened to my Droid. Its fast, its smooth, its stable, its sweet, its the best. Nate above me also agrees and how can the both of us be wrong. And in case you want to overclock, i suggest the great Chevy's 1.25ghz for ERE25 builds(which is available on this forum). Both of these devs work tirelessly and are very responsive. Thanks Pete, Thanks Chevy:)

    Actually SholesMod and DroidMod was the first devs to use the rom.tgz format for their ROMs, so you can deicide and pick all the features you want in your ROM.

    AdamZ is the only other dev to do this....

    Although, I hear blackdroid is supposed to release a ROM tomorrow that uses that same format also

    I really am having a good experience w/ SS v2.0.2, added blue ESE theme; Stable, fast, and looks great. I had trouble with getting some higher performance kernels to work but the man behind the awesomeness, Chevy, hooked it up. Great support behind all his work.

    Ultimate Droid 6.5 BlackDroid, live wallpapers, Sweet dark graphics, tether, overclock, etc... I have had NO issues with this ROM except for media player randomly stopping on videos, which I was told might be a kernel problem... (7 coming out today i think)

    DroidMod v1.0 for me. OC'd to 1.2 with not a problem. I get an FC maybe once every 2 weeks if I'm lucky. It runs silky smooth. Best in my book.

    droidmod; its a solid rom which works and can easily transition to other roms. Last week I installed Black droid UD v 5.0. Though I will admit a rom built off the 2.1 version is smoother; it had too many bugs. I went back to droidmod; I will wait until they produce a 2.1 rom.

    Droidmod was solid, then I moved to SS. SS 2.0.2 was decent until I found Cyanogenmod by Koush. This has been the fastest, smoothest rom for me by far but still needs some tweaks imo.

    I don't get it, I'm trying the cyanogen rom right now and it's not smooth nor fast at stock speed. Swype is jaggedy, home takes longer to load/widget to load. And I've noticed my browser scrolling is a lot more choppy. Am I doing something wrong? I installed via rom manager and did a full wipe when it asked.

    So your using droidmod with one of Chevy's kernels? I can't remember does droidmod even give u the option to overclock?? I rooted with droidmod and used it. Now I'm on smoked glass 5.0 but I'm thinking of switching back to droidmod and just using the smoked glass theme instead. I want to overclock using droidmod, but I don't know which of Chevy's kernels to use. Somebody help me please!!

    Bugless Beast 2.1 V.7 with Chevys 1.1 ghz kernel = Flawless.

    I tried Ultimate Droid, but honestly it has way to many issues for the amount of hype its getting.

    I'm using DroidMod and overlocked at 1Ghz with zero, and I mean ZERO problems. Can't compare to others as this is the only one I've tried. That being said, this is so nice I have no reason to try any others.

    Now your using droidmod, now for overclocking u use Chevy's kernel or the one that comes with droidmod??
    in other words I want to go back to droidmod and just use the smoked glass theme instead of the smoked glass rom, and overclock it. Just don't know if I can use one of Chevy's kernels or not

    I'm using Chevy's 2.02 with his 1.2 Ghz 5 slot kernel and with JIT enabled. It is fast, smooth and stable. What more do I need???

    I've had no issues, but from reading Chevy's threads about his rom and about his kernels, I can see that his level of support is totally unprecedented in this community. He monitors this board and Alldroid constantly. He provides the quickest responses I've seen. He answers everyone's questions, even the questions involving issues that obviously are not a result of his roms and kernels.

    Try his rom and you'll be hooked.
