    Just read about it a couple of places this morning and it appears it is no longer in the App Market. Sounds like a handy thing to have (if rooted). Anyone know the scoop?

    I didn't even know what Droid Swap was til last night (and still don't really know), because I tried that new Ultimate 2.1 ROM from Alldroid and Droid Swap came with that particular ROM for some reason......the installation instructions said for best results, to set the Droid Swap settings to 96MB (for what reason I have no clue).....

    What did the Market say it was supposed to do?

    Did the app help with the fc's and reboots?

    Yeah, did it?

    Edit: I meant to infer also in this post that Matt is a noob. He mentions getting it to help but didn't inform us if it did help. Bad Matt. :icon_ devil:

    No, I'm back to my trusty Bugless Beast Nandroid backup. But I'm keeping a close eye on the ROM because I really like it and it was even faster than BB when it wasn't rebooting.

    I hate to say it......

    But I was a little disappointed with the new BB ROM, wasn't you guys? BB is my absolute favorite custom ROM available, but that one just wasn't what I expected compared to the previous BB ROMs.... :(

    Well you can custom skin it which I know is your major gripe...I also don't like this and don't feel like having to use MetaMorph (which some people were having probs with) to do it, but it wasn't the deal breaker.

    But my issues with it were a) if I am going to "upgrade" to a 2.1 ROM, I want the launcher with phone and browser icon, b) no auto brightness (every 2.1 ROM seems to be missing this except Ultimate ROM), etc. It also seemed a little slower than his other 2.0.1 ROMs, but admittedly I didn't try it much without the live wallpapers.

    I was disappointed. I installed it and ran it for less than an hour. Once I found that I would have to Metamorph the theme I wanted, physically reinstall my apps (nandroid backup/data would not work for me), and that I lost a lot of the stuff I like about 7.5, I went back to 7.5.

    Now I'm worried that he will not update beyond 7.5. I guess I'll go with BB2.1 as soon as he gets it a little more tweaked. But I think I'll wait for a few updates from Pete.
