Quite simple. In your opinion, what is the best, most stable, best battery life rom?

Can't go wrong with vortex http://www.DroidXForums.com/forum/vortex/39892-rom-vortex-rc1.html and im really liking the newest version of liberty http://rootzwiki.com/topic/10655-rom-liberty3-v20-for-the-droid-x-1128-sunday-bloody-sunday/ either one IMO.

I've been asking the same question. I've been running liberty 3 1.0. I just flashed liberty 3 2.0 yesterday and so far so good.

I've flashed miui and its realty nice, so far! My next question is if and when I do want to flash vortex or liberty, do I have to sbf or just wipe data/cash like I did miui?

I just wiped to install vortex, dunno about liberty. ran vortex after miui and switched back, but give liquid a try if you still want the visual appeal of miui with a bit better battery

I am a noob to this and I have tried all the Rome out there for my .605 GB . I love Liquid Smooth 3.2 no issues what so ever. I've been running on this rom for a month now.

SSX 2.2 is my daily driver. Not the best battery, but super stable.

What baseband do you have? I have tried 3.2 and had nothing but problems with the radio. Wifi starts, stops. 3G starts, stops. Bluetooth starts, stops. ETC.

I saw this earlier and almost croaked. 3.2 is an awesome rom, but it just kicked the crude out of my X. Everything borked on it. I figured DDkenny was one lucky person.

For battery life I would award miui 1.11.9 based on ics framework. I could easily go 2 days with it on my x.

as for performance I think any of the good roms work about the same for me, cyanogen 7.1 or liberty I think are the ones I remember the best (most recent previous roms)

both CM and liberty seemed very stable.

I personally use miui 1.11.9 ics and then put a different launcher over it (launcher pro right now)... only a couple small problems but the battery life is just so SICK that I'm sticking with it. the three things that I wish worked better is not all toggles work, such as clicking the 2g/3g toggle seems to make data go bonkers and crash over and over and over and... you get the point. next is volume cant be changed while at the home screen... ODD, then lastly holding home for multi-tasking has a delay to it.

still considering it's ICS, very fast, and incredible battery life... I think it's ok that it's rough around the edges and seeing as it must have been built from the ground up with ICS it is worth trying out.

My baseband that I'm running is BP_C_01.09.13P . I have found one problem and that is when I want to take a video when I hit record, it records blurry. The battery life could be a little better but with the flexibility and customization I get with Liquid 3.2 , its a small sacrifice. Oh and I wish the battery indicator was in 1% increments

I can't stop raving and saying enough good things about VorteX Rom RC1. This is the only rom I have tried where everything works flawlessly and battery life is amazing. Im using the Conservative governor and its very good on performance and I get minimum 11 hours on very heavy usage. Highly recommended...

Which Rom? If your installing Vortex as long as your on a Gingerbread based rom .602 or. 605 you should be okay just wiping all the goodies. You can always install from your backup to be on the safe side.

I would do a sbf back to .602 gingerbread then root then install vortex rc1 with droid bootstrapper. Just make sure to back up your apps and then back up your contacts with google servers since vortex doesn't have VZ back up assistance. That's what I would do for a clean install....

(Fixes crm open update package stall and possibly md5 mismatches)Found an amazing way to fix any backups or sd errors... just plug in your phone then mount it.. open my computer.. right click your sd card then under one of the taps click fix errors.. check both boxes and wait! Then I installed rom and I love it! The ui is gorgeous just wish there was more customization ..

Awesome good to hear you figured it out and got it running! Not sure if you know about the droid junk modifications for VorteX. Let's you change status bar clock color, size, date color, and a text heading in your notifications pull down. Its a simple flash of a zip file. Makes this rom more cool

Cool no problem, you probably already saw you can change battery icons in the vortex toolbox just have to upgrade the tool box and rom manager in market to work. There's also different themes for VorteX you can easily flash as well....
