Im loving this rom you uploaded me Jr! Its smooth and very customizable
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.

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.

thats sad that's the phone i am looking at love my droid 2 have had it clocked to 1.4ghz for a while. performance wise does it do well? after reading some reviews i noticed that people complained about the stupid moto animations did you flip yours off? any idea if the phone is crackable?

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?

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

:) I see you finally listened to me about setting display brightness & conservative governor. Wanna try out something else?

Get Sysctl Config from the market and plug in these values:

Minfree Kbytes:6144
Dirty ratio:90
Dirty background ratio:70
VFS Cache Pressure: 1
OoM Allocating task checked

Don't need apply at boot if on CM7, then push apply. Should help with overall "feel" and battery life a tad.
If you have higher ram (256MB+) you can set minfree higher if you wish. That's more a global tweak. Basically with the tweaked values it won't cycle cache as much but set it too high and it can be just as bad as not setting them at all. Som roms (no init.d support) and a few others will have to do a Set at boot for it to function. I think it also has to have compache enabled kernel or rom.

Here's a quick read over what it does:
http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-hacks/19145-tutorial-roms-sysctl-conf-other-tweaks.html
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.
