Are u talking about 2.3.3 Roms or the 2nd init Roms? If 2.3.3, I liked apex 2.0 and broodcomb, also aosp liberty I never ran it but I heard it was good, Ive pretty good stuff about shining also

Isn't liquid a 2nd init rom? If you really want a true froyo rom then I thought apex was pretty nice and of course liberty but there really is nothing like 2nd init rims they are based from source no moto blur completely customizeable and easier to customize

yeah liquid is 2nd init. and i agree they are top notch when it comes to performance and customization. i have just not had very good luck with them. so i want to give some .596 roms.

DSX or Shuji. Stellar battery life, reliable, no nightlies. Just great performers.

From what I've read on drew grens roms are good... because the roms he used with our giving credit to the actual dev that made it were really good... Like I said I haven't looked into it.. Just read... So I won't go near his stuff now

I'm running DSX. It's really smooth, good battery life, and quite stable, too. There are a few themes for it, green river, blueriver, redriver, orangeriver, and darkriver. There are also different sliders and a crt off for it. BBCrackamn over at MDW made the rom and wulf (he's around here, too) made the themes and crt mod for it. You can also mod it a little more with meta or ninjamorph. There's some blur in it, has hdmi support, and has much of the bloat removed. There's a thread at MDW devoted to it and a separate thread for the themes.

Oh, there is one thing I really like about DSX. When I ran stock it would take as long as 5 minutes for the 3g icon to show up. After going to DSX that time dropped to about a minute or so. It may be due to the fact that you also get the 12p radio, but I really like it just the same.

shuji is really nice, he's got some nice themes for it over @Rootzwiki, its fast and gets amazing battery life as well.

man this is though. ive heard so many good things about both of those. idk which one to try first! :excited:

Try Shuji, its great, and as far as I know, there are more themes. As far as customization goes, all .596 ROM's on that kernel will have the same level of customization, due the kernel restriction and fact that its not a 2nd-INIT ROM. So expect the same things for each one...

i gotcha. i think i will.
regaurding 2nd init, arent they close to getting it to work with .596 or even .602 kernals?

*they meaning the devs

Yeah for sure, way better battery life would be awesome for 2nd-INIT ROMs

Shuji has more customization. BBcrackman, who made DSX, stated he's waiting for next update to update his rom. No idea what's in the making. Get the best of both worlds and flash both. My primary phone is on DSX, back up on Shuji.

I'm pretty sure you do... And plus it's good to do anyways to get a clean install when doing something that major

I saw it with my own two eyes, rumor has it he's not doing an update until vzw issues the final 602 release.

Steps to dsx:

Sbf to froyo, make sure you wipe and reset after sbf!!
Root
D2 bootstrap, NOT dx bootstrap
Install 2-part prerooted 596, make sure you wipe and reset after flash
Install DSX

Enjoy!!!

You can skip activation until you're up and running on dsx as you'll be doing a data wipe/factory reset after going to 596. It'll save you some time. Make sure you sync contacts, etc to google first so you can get it all back effortlessly.

Also, if you want any themes, Wulf has made some nice ones. There's a thread over at MDW with all of the "colored river" themes in them. There's a thread here, too.
