    pete said there is no reason to be on a 2.0.1 rom since all the new 2.1 roms use the OTA dump as a base and he wont really be working on them anymore so i would say the 2.1

    yes Thanks. I read that, but I was wondering if everyone agreed that the 2.1 is faster and more stable?

    He is still working on his 2.0.1 ROM. He posted today that the next build of v1 will be from the ground up. There have been several people come back from the 2.1 ROM over the past few days because it is still very rough. It's fine for people the don't need high reliability on their phone but for the rest of use 2.0.1 is the better bet (at least for the next few days).

    Also the 2.1 kernels are still VERY buggy (if you look at Chevy's "testers wanted" thread there are a lot of people having problems with them). Personally I'd give it a few days (and versions) to get some of the bugs ironed out.

    I put v1.2 on the other day and it it flawless and FAST!!!!! much better than any current 2.1 I've run yet. Though granted this is likely because a lot of apps haven't been optimized for 2.1 yet so there's likely a lot of conflicts that will go away shortly.

    I'm new at all this and have been playing the past few days expirement and learning. I put BB 2.1 v0.5 on yesterday and it's running fine.

    I did have a problem installing 2.1 though. I couldn't get past the first boot and the screen just stayed black. I wiped, went back to 2.0.1 and that was fine. Then I installed 2.1 on top of it and all has been fine since. It seems weird I could install 2.1 on top of 2.0.1 but not directly.

    I installed chevys kernel12 at 1000max and 125 min and so far no issues, but I haven't run many apps yet.

    I'm liking it so far!

    I just upgraded to the 2.1 ROM last night - it's got some bugs with relation to apps and what not. Plus it's not themable yet - however, it seems pretty fast and runs cool with Chevy's Kernel at 1.1GHZ. Not sure I'll keep it though. Thankfully, switching back and forth is pretty easy

    2.1 is the best by far.

    You need to do a backup with Titanium Backup, buy the upgrade version, its well worth it.

    I've been a dyed-in-the-wool Bugless Beast 2.01 guy for a long time. But when I saw Pete's statement about most of his work in the future going into the 2.1 rom, I switched. It's as good as 1.1 or 1.2 on my droid. I'm running Chevy's 1.1 ERE25 Kernel and it's performing well too. His 1.25 for ERE25 will not work on my Droid.:mad:

    I don't care about Live Wallpapers or Launcher2..1, so I'm doing ok. It does seem faster on some native functions such as loading the Download list in the Market, adding icons to the home screens.

    I wonder if there are actually any issues with his 2.1 build or if its people trying to use buggy 2.1 launcher, incompatible kernels, not using nandroid to install or people drinking hater-aid. I am using the 2.1 and other than the video issue which he fixed immediately i find it perfect. No FC, no hangups, no weird behavior, nothing.

    I think you just nailed it. Absolutely the only issue I've had was the rom I selected. The rom has been as stable as any of the other 2.01 Bugless Beast roms I've used.
