    Well im looking to move from stock and advance my phone some more. I am unsure for the Global D2 on what rom is better than other Roms and why. Please inform me so I can make an educated decision. Thanks all :)

    I prefer Liberty. It runs smooth, It seems to help the battery life on my phone. Not many annoying forcecloses, and best of all, there is plenty of custimization you can do to this ROM to fit your liking.:icon_ banana:

    I prefer the squidlymandingo, it is alot like the stock rom that came on my d2 but faster and customizable. I tried liberty 1.5 which was ok, but I had issues with google voice search not working. This squidly seems faster and more professional somehow. Battery life is ok also. Haven't tried the others, happy with the squid.

    Just an FYI, the only ROM that works on the D2G is Fission 2.4.3. You can make the others work by flashing any D2 ROM, then flashing the D2G ROMer tool from team Get R Done. If you don't do that, there's a very real chance you'll brick your phone, as the D2 and D2G are completely different when it comes to software. The caveat with the ROMer tool is that your sensors won't work..

    Speaking of Liberty....

    Is there anyway to customize the app dock? I hate how it only has the phone and browser...

    Yes you can actually. You should try ADW.launcher or launcher pro. I prefer adw. In adw you can download custom themes for your dock to give it the style you like. You can also get up to five icons on the dock.

    If its your first rom you should try fission. As someone stated above its the only rom made for the global. When you get a little more comfortable and the get r done guys fix the bugs in their Romer then flash everything. Try them all.

    I agree with this statement. You gonna want to get what fits best for you weather it be fission or liberty or one of the other ones.
