Is it worth paying $4 for?

i recently rooted tonight and havent done anything because idk how to do all this stuff. basically i just want a cool theme without having all the fancy stuff the roms come with. may unroot soon.

I think it is once froyo settles in, it will be good. It was really good when it was 2.1 only, but they are updating like made which tells me they care.

no need to pay $4 for it since BB is now under the free section... just get dropbox on your phone from the marketplace and drop your kernels and whatnot into the dropbox folder and install them from recovery...

i paid $4 awhile ago when 2.1 was just coming out and now i never use any of the premium content. if u wanna flash between roms like a mad man, then yes by all means pay for the app. cool to see what else is out there, but then again, u can snap a picture of the QR code and itll automatically download the rom for you too...

Like others have already said, there's no need to get the paid version of rom manager, but it does donate to the developer which is always nice to do :) i got it as well when 2.1 was just coming out and it was really helpful, but now that bugless beast is in the free section i dont really use the paid section much.

Free version of ROM Manager works fine. The advantage you get by paying for it as I understand it are: Automated Backups, and a convenient online directory of ROMs accessible from the app.

With the free version, you can still just select a ZIP file from your SD card. You have a lot of easy options for getting things there:

1) Use Dropbox to send files from your PC to the phone
2). Use the Browser on the phone to download files directly
3). If you have Froyo, use Chrome-to-phone from Chrome (or firefox with chrome-to-phone add-on) to send a link to a file directly to the phone.

Once you have the ZIP file on the phone, you just pick "install from ZIP". Not QUITE as convenient as picking the ROM name from a list, but this way isn't very difficult, and it's better to know what you're getting.
