    Exactly, heavy tweaking and messing with compcache on a clean rom with all bloat removed.

    Glad you like it! I do have a patch but can't remember what it fixes, if you come acrossed issues throw me a text if i see what issue it is it may spur my memory. Don't try to put the new market on it, just doesn't work with it.

    Running Droid 3, I've had it for about a week.. Just wish the battery was more up to par. Only Running a few apps: Battery Information and GO Keyboard.. Had more, But battery would keep dying after 8-10 hours(idle)

    Just got a Milestone (that's a Droid right?) for my gf and I love it! The previous owner had MIUI left on it, which is quite the responsive little bitch. Considering using that on my Desire, but I just don't like the entire "Oooh now make a MIUI account and everything is MIUI goodness!" feel that's dripping from it.

    Maybe that's because there is no 'best' ROM? :p

    You want features? Speed? Lightweight? Lots of updates? Does it have to be 2.3?

    sorry, i was a bit vague :p

    speed is important, WP7 is awfully slow.
    working features is a must, no bluetooth on WP7 is a killer.
    the latest most stable version would be great, i'm still on the pre NODO update for WP7 due to broken stuff,

    and no sense, i do not like the little arc thing for calls at the bottom on the screen if thats whats included in sense.

    @Thrackan
    Not quite a Droid as the custom roms are not interchangeable between them. Miui just plain out works.

    @SpookyWillow
    Wish I could help you. I will take a look at a few roms for it and report back.

    I am running Dual-boot of Win 6.5 and Android 2.2. At XDA they have a lot of guides but make sure to see which Radio ROM you have along with which HD2 you own (T-mobile or International also known as Leo 512 and Leo 1024). Also perform HSPL on the devices before flashing any ROM

    Yeah performance wise its awesome. Nope I haven't change many settings yet.. been busy. But pretty sure now I figured the problem out. Was running facebook 24/7, now it's off and running like a champ. Crackable? There was a root release last thursay, from what i've heard it works like a charm. But myself i'm waiting till my in store return is over, so in a week i'll test it out :)

    Note: my battery temps were getting up to 105, mild use. Another reason why I think it was a battery issue

    I'm under the impression that my gf's Milestone with MIUI reacts a ton quicker than my Desire with Oxygen... Wonder if that's the phone or the ROM, cause Oxygen is supposed to be snappy and lightweight.

    I think the stock kernel on MIUI defaults to an OnDemand Governor (ramps up clock speed fast and sacrifices battery life), has compcache enabled along with some minor sysctl tweaks. Making it feel faster but in all essence with some proper tweaking on the Desire it could feel just as responsive if not faster.

    Just switched out my kernel to 1.2Ghz ULV

    :D

    @CrackerJack

    Probably have a few apps launching and staying in ram. Might need to get advanced task killer and everytime you put your phone to sleep disable aka kill everything except email and "missing phone" finders i.e. Where's My Droid? .

    I have the "Ondemand" governor on, and just upped the max CPU speed from 998 to 1113 in Oxygen's settings. Gonna check another launcher, because that's the part that reacts the worst.

    Any way I can check those compcache and sysctl settings?

    Sysctl:
    See a few pages back, i don't talk about much in-depth but do give a few tweaks

    When I mentioned compcache enabled, even without compcache it does help.


    Compcache:
    Odds are you will have to check performance settings.


    I also suggest staying on the conservative governor. It's fast easy on battery and only hogs cpu when you really need it. Again if you need a very lightweight launcher, take a look at LauncherPro. I use GO Launcher EX.
     
    Thrackan says thanks.
