    I see that also.....i think the "new" crew is doing much bigger things. I could be totally wrong. Personally i hated daily and weekly updates.

    As others have said, I started out with DroidMod and loved it. Absolutely no problems. Much faster than stock and much easier on the battery.

    I recently switched to UltimateDroid, which is even faster than DroidMod was. BUT for me personally I'm having way more problems with UltimateDroid than I ever was with DroidMod. Nothing I haven't been able to fix after some tinkering, but if you just wanna toss something on your phone and have it work flawlessly, DroidMod is an excellent way to go.

    Now that I've tried other ROMs, the only downside I've found of DroidMod is it runs a little warm. I was regularly into the 120s,often into the 130s. Now on Ultimate with Adamz low voltage kernel it is a STRUGGLE to get it past 110.

    My suggestion would be to follow these instructions:
    Start Here | Root Your Droid

    Then perform a nandroid restore of Bugless Beast. As others have said, there is no reason to be running a 2.0.1 OS right now.

    you can download other roms in this forum, then simply used nandroid to install it (do a backup of yours). just read up on how to go to sprecovery then do nandroid backup/restore.

    Yup, I just made a Nandroid backup of mine so I had something to fall back on, and then installed UltimateDroid using the Nandroid restore technique. When you click the thread for a rom you want they will give you instructions. You're coming from 2.0.1 going to 2.1 so make sure you go the Nandroid route.

    +1 for droid mod. It is a nice starter rom and it also transition well to other roms. I used droidmod to install ultimate droid 5.0 when it was released a while back.

    Sorry for such a dumb question, but is there a way to avoid a wipe when going from 2.0.1 to 2.1? or is there a way to restore that stuff? thanks

    wait, i just had an idea to do a partial restore of data only... would that work after updating to 2.1?

    No issues here with heat. I have been up to 110 but that is as high as it has ever gotten

    Did the droid mod yesterday. All is good so far. Will I go any farther? Not sure. BB has a lot of neat things that I might try in the future but I want tomake sure that all is stable on the DM before I do anything else.
    I say do it!
