    What rom do I choose?. I have tried BB two weeks ago and had alot of FC's. Now I am running just plain old 2.0.1 rooted. And I cant get the new google maps update to install from the market. So I want to wipe my phone and start over. And wanna choose the best rom...

    I need the GPS and WIFI working 100%. And I wanna block the OTA of 2.1 being pushed this week from verizon.

    I'm running the alldroid community 2.1 beta. I love it. It's stable, and fast (running taz's 950mhz kernel with new processor temp moitor plugin). And I just like having 2.1 (I'm sure the appeal will decrease after the official release though)

    It's really up to you, aside from the back end differences and some stuff that most never use, you'll get almost the same thing with each rom. 5 Screens, overclocked, multi-touch, smoked glass theme, tethering, etc...

    If you're in the mood you could grab a couple, try them out for a few hours with what you regularly do, make a backup, then try a different rom to see which one you like the most.

    The quick answer is "everything".
    The longer answer (courtesy of hacku) is available here: SholesMod Step by Step
    There have been a few tweaks since he created the Step by Step, but the major steps are the same.

    The biggest advantages are:
    1 - You never have to connect your phone to a PC
    2 - If you DL the app from the Market you'll get notifications of app updates
    3 - It gives you the option of returning to a "Stock" unrooted ROM with a couple of button presses.
    4 - It's a SHOLES ROM! (nothing against any of the others, I just like their work)

    You won't get automatic notifications of ROM updates (although I think they are working on that), but if you're like me, you will see the notices on the forums anyway. You can always launch the app occasionally just to check. If a newer ROM is available, it will show up in the list.
