    I know this might elicit some biased opinions posting on this forum, but my gf's been on Liberty 1.5 for the longest time. I see Liberty 2 has been out for some time now and I'm just wondering if it's still the best DX ROM out there. I know when Liberty first came out, it blew all the other ROMs out of the water, but has anyone else made any advancements? Also, do you guys have pointers and things to watch out for when upgrading from 1.5? All the help and feedback is appreciated.

    Edit: I guess I should mention she's a very simple user and would like something that is stable for the most part.

    I am one of those that normally waits for quite awhile before upgrading to the newest version. I was on 1.5 and it was working great. I went to 2.0.1 about month and half ago or so and it's been just as good if not better. I haven't done GB yet but I will at some point soon. Going from 1.5 to 2.0.1 now shouldn't give you any problems. Some have had some issues with the market not showing up or working correctly but there's a patch for it in the 2.0.1 threads if you need it.

    I feel you, if it makes you feel any better I had 2.0.1 before I went to Liberty GB v.5 and I find it looks better and runs faster than 2.0.1. I've been pretty lucky I guess. The only problem I had was using the AOSP camera with the blur gallery, once I changed them both to the AOSP it was perfect no issues since then.

    i used to be one of those that flashed as soon as the latest and greatest new version came out. I sent my original droid to an early grave flashing so many roms and themes. Now that I have my DX, I take care to flash less making sure the roms are as stable as possible so as not to have to back track any more than necessary.

    I am anxious to get to GB though and see what all the fuss is about ;)

    Liberty GB v0.5 is awesome. I had liberty 1.5, 2.0.1 then went GB. GB is so much better than froyo, you'd wish you had done it sooner

    I've been on Liberty GB since release(currently v0.5). Pretty content with it, way faster than ANYTHING on froyo.. much more stable too. I haven't tried any other GB rom much of any though.

    I would hold off on putting an unfinished ROM on her phone. If the goal is to have LGB on her phone, I'd wait until at least a few weeks after the public release. That being said, Liberty 2.0.1 is an awesome alternative. My wife's phone is currently stock and she has more problems with her phone than I do, and I've done a lot more to my phone than just installing Liberty 2.0.1, which by itself is fast, robust and dead easy to use. The only reason I haven't put it on my wife's phone yet is that I know that LGB is coming soon and I don't want her to have to deal with her phone being flashed twice.

    EDIT: Let me also say definitively: YES, Liberty IS *THE* best ROM for the Droid X. Period, end of story! :-D

    No, it's Apex.

    The perfect ROM (imho) is one that aims to be as close to AOSP (stock) as Google intended it to be, and no one comes close to doing this than fab. And of course because of how legitimately AOSP it is, it's more stable. And no BS. (There's a reason why Nexus phones are the most stable Android phones around, because they aren't tinkered with by manufacturers). Apex offers improved performance, great battery life, and the ability to customize it if you so choose to -- it's just not as convenient to do so without Liberty's Toolbox.

    I am too scared to go to GB.
    Ive heard so many people having issues.
    And I am not willing to ever SBF.

    But liberty 2.0.1 is very fast, and I can't imagine it faster. So I am fine with it.

    If you notice though, most of the "customizing" people want to do involves getting rid of the annoying crap that manufacturers put in anyway. You don't even need to mess with Apex.
