If i have bootstrap, is rom manager pretty much useless and vice versa? I have both, have done bootstrap recovery, titanium backup, then went back to bootstrap and did the other recovery under the bootstrap, did wipe cache partition, backing up system now, thinking i would have to use rom manager to install different roms?

You need bootstrap... as rom manager won't hijack the recovery... You'll need bootstrap to do that... And you can use rom manager to flash different recoveries

OK, when I was looking for roms I went to the cm7 d/l but read should only d/l if can help fix or whatever and since this was my first root and flash I figured be best to hold off on that. Found the modrx video about shuji. Its a good rom. Blows stock out the water haha. Just think the cam and video quality is lacking hardcore compared to stock but we'll see. Ill put it to the test tomorrow at the ou-mizzou football game. Easy to get a little overwhelmed after root with all these roms out there lol

Miui highly reccommended. You'll have to deal with a few minor bugs though if you choose to flash it. Best rom out there though imo. WAAAAYYY different from stock so if u do choose to flash it make sure you read the announcement post in it's entirety and have a few hours to play with ur new phone ;)

Also just a few tips for flashing between roms;
1-only backup and restore user apps + data with TiBu. Restoring system data can cause all sorts of problems such as force closes and boot loops
2-use sms backup/restore from the market to restore your sms messages on your new rom
3-before u flash to a new rom or do a factory reset, make sure you turn on auto-sync and allow google to backup all your contacts. After starting up your new rom, all u will need to do is log into your google account and turn auto-sync on and your contacts will automatically download from google. Using verizon backup assistant is a waste of time.
4-always clear cache and dalvik cache when flashing anything, even if the installation instructions do not require it. No need to do a factory reset unless you are flashing to a new rom.
5-keep in mind that hdmi requires a moto blur based rom. Aosp roms do not currently support hdmi or hd video playback.

Welcome to the dark side ;)
