    Difference in ROMs

    I am currently running CM7 on the gingerbread kernel. I have been surfing the internet, but I can't seem to find much information out there. Can someone help me out here? I'm curious about trying new ROMs. I would like to continue to run off the Gingerbread kernel, so I know that limits a few of my potential ROM's.

    Near as I can tell, I have the following options:
    CM7
    MIUI
    Liquid Ginger version
    Shuji
    Liberty


    Any I'm missing? So here's what I'm hoping. I'd like a bit more then just what ROM you are using. Could I maybe get a run down of some of the features, battery life experience, over clocking, undervolting etc, etc?

    I really want full featured, and as much battery life as possible. Quite possibly my favorite part of CM7 is the power controls in the Notification bar, so I'd really like to keep that. Beyond that, I'm open to any cool features. I'm also not the most tech savvy when it comes to behind the scenes, having to do coding in the terminal emulator in order to make things work the proper way, so I'd like to avoid that.

    Hoping I can get some information.

    Thanks everyone.

    Running miui, and it is very nice, very very customizable, it does have the iOS, feel though, (no app drawer) but you can create folders, has a drop down toggle screen that can be changed. I personally haven't had a bad battery life, some have had worse, quite a few sweet mods for them (statusbar switched, center, right) not hotseat mod..The support from DXC is pretty amazing also, very quick to squash any bugs that may be found in it. All in all its a very well rounded rom, and worth a shot IMO.

    differnces...
    cm7... pure aosp experience.. 2nd init base... extremely custiomizable... aosp interface... poor battery life
    miui... pure aosp experience.. 2nd init base... extremely custiomizable... ios like in the interface... poor battery life
    liquid... pure aosp experience... 2nd init base... still in early stages on the ginger kernel though... aosp interface... not as customizable as cm7 or miui... poor battery life
    shuji... good blur experience... 602 based... pretty smooth for blur base... not as customizable as the 2nd init base... good battery life...
    liberty... good blur experience... 596 based... pretty smooth for blur base.. not as customizable as 2nd init base... good battery life...

    this is for the ginger kernel on these roms.. i've ran all these roms... and because of the features... and the experience... my fav is cm7

    best way to find out which you like the best... test and try them out...

    There's always the Blur-based ROMs like DarkSlide X. It's Motoblur-based but debloated and has good battery life.

    Sorry, aosp experience? Not familiar with that. Also, what's 2nd init? Also, if I switch to liberty, do I have to sbf to. 596?

    it's all good...
    aosp... android open source project... this is the code that motorola, samsung, htc and all them build the codes for their phones... so it gives you the experience how it was originally made...
    and here's a link explaining the 2nd init process
    Still Loading ... » blog:2011-06-14:2nd-init._what_it_is_and_how_it_works
    and if your on 602... no.. you can just flash over the top of it... it will revert your system to 596.... and it will work just fine

    Sweet thanks, and good to see you aren't sick of me yet. I'm pretty sure you've answered about 3/4ths of my questions!

    Hopefully I will be done for a while. I kind of want to try MIUI, mostly because it appears to be so drastically different from most of the others. However, when i go to the MIUI official site (MIUI Official Site) it doesn't list the DX as a phone that is available. Is it just so broad that it will work on most phones? Otherwise, where is the best source to download a safe/up-to-date version?

    Lastly, while running CM7, can I simply flash any of those ROMs using rom manager? I don't need to SBF for any of them? Just flash over the top of CM7? The ones I'm fairly certain I will try in the next few days are MIUI, Liquid, and liberty. I have already tried Shuji and it was just there, didn't seem very much different.

    Thanks!

    i can't have that... what's the quarter i missed???


    here's the miui website with the dx download...

    and yes... you can flash them right on top... about a week ago... i went from cm7 to apex to shuji... then back to cm7... with no sbf... so you are good to get in all your flashing needs
