    I've had my Droid 1 for a year and I used Bugless Beast a few months ago but went back to stock a few weeks after Froyo came out because it kept telling me to do the ota update and the path of least resistance was to revert back to 2.1 so Froyo could do it's thing.

    My situation has changed and now I've got to tether (Barnacle works great btw!) and so I've got to be rooted and I tried BB and a couple of other roms and everyone seems to have gotten on a smoked glass tangent. Making everything less readable is a good thing? It's finally happening - I'm getting old. lol

    Can you recommend a rom for a getting old fart like me?

    What I'm looking for is:
    - The stock Froyo screen (theme) is very good but I'm not allergic to change either - it just has to be readable in all kinds of lighting.
    - Fast is good - my phone likes 800mhz and so do I

    Rooted stock Froyo looks and feels right to me but after trying a few roms it feels awfully slow. Any ideas?

    Cyanogen Mod. Stock look, 800mhz kernel( 800mhz if you have SetCPU, 600mhz otherwise). Theres options to change things if you like, but it loads up plain vanilla. If you go that route, go with the 'stable' roms.

    Project Elite v4 by actngrezy. Fast, smooth and stable. By far the best rom out right now. Stock look with Gingerbread tidbits.

    I had problems with Cyanogenmod 6.1.2 and several of the current nightlies. Wiped several times before install like recommended. Even unrooted, got OTA updates, then rerooted later and tried again. Still had problems with txts getting sent to wrong people, browser randomly closing, and certain apps had some java error. I don't get any of those problems with stock unrooted or with MIUI 12.24. Of course neither of those two fit what you are looking for so I'm looking for the same as you at the moment. I like MIUI but I'd rather have the stock look.

    Well bb0.6.2 isn't smoked glass...its a stock gingerbread theme which just so happens to be dark. I assume most devs will be going to this once gingerbread is stable enough to be used as a base so in that sense your days of a light colored theme, even stock android, are limited...

    That said, CyanogenMod is a good stock looking option as is sapphire. As others have said, pe4 is good also but has a little bit different look.

    Ud does not have a stock theme. A nice clean theme? Yes. A stock theme? Far from it...

    He's looking for user friendly, stock looking roms. Maybe we should be posting screen shots for him. This is what CM looks like when it loads up. It comes with ADW.

    Check Out metiCkMod; all his Roms are lean & fast, including the stock ones.

    Highly recommend Project Elite v.4. Look doesn't change much--good for us old farts--but fast and smooth. The team has been very supportive also.

    I'm telling you, sapphire is the closest to stock and blows every rom out of the water in terms of speed and stability. Also comes with a great 800mhz kernel stock. It fits your needs perfectly.
