    The 2.2 roms out now are based off of a leaked version of 2.2 that wasn't finished.

    The source code is the final code, so it will work better (more stable).

    not to mention the roms now are just glorified themes. Now that source is out, roms can be built from the ground up. So they'll be more stable and have better features (potentially)

    Angels will sing, dogs and cats will get along, rainbows and unicorns will abound.

    All will be right in the universe!


    (for a little while anyway...bring on the GINGERBREAD!!!)

    Absolutely! All doors are open now. Before source dropped, 99% of all the froyo roms were the same. The only modifications that had been made were kernel swaps, themes, and a few app modifications along with, of course deodexing, zipaligned apks, etc. Now you will start to see the big guns come out (specifically keep your eye on Cyanogen, his stuff never fails to impress).

    All the 2.2 ROMs out before were just the same leaked ROM with some scripts and themes added. While the differences may seem subtle, building from source is SOOOO much more complicated. Which is why currently there are only 2 real from source ROMs and only one using 2.2

    Who are the others? Most of the other roms aren't worth using...
