    How many of the Android users have applied custom ROMs to their phones?

    Planning on flashing a custom ROM on my Vibrant in order to get Android 2.2 on it. Tmo and Samsung aren't moving fast enough....2.3 is already out and 2.4 is around the corner!!!

    Anyone?

    i have a captivate and have cycled through several roms ... i really want that gingerbread but i will settle for just a little froyo first. the custom froyo roms for the captivate just chew battery ... i get maybe 10 hours of little use. They just need to release the froyo-ness!

    Sorry HTC EVO... NERDS... Yes I am and proud of it. Onething to note. If you root the phone and then want to go back to the orig rom you have to do it yourself since the phone store who has the rom will not put it back on for you. So lame....

    Yeah. I've been waiting for Samsung and Tmobile to get their stuff together...but no dice. They already have a new vibrant planned for release but guess what....2.2 on it even though 2.3 is already out.

    Always one step behind.

    Flashing it will help me stay on the ball with the latest releases of the OS.

    I had a Mytouch 3g that I had flashed 2.2 on while waiting on FroYo to come out. It's a much slicker OS than 1.6 - which is what I was running. The posts about chewing up battery life are right. I don't know what OS your phone runs now, but I noticed a HUGE difference in battery life. Supposedly 2.2 was going to handle background applications better, but if I ran anything (pandora, slacker, etc.) on my way home and forgot to turn the phone off and back on again it would be dead by morning.

    Changing the ROM was really easy. Supposedly there's a risk of bricking your phone - but you can go on youtube and watch videos explaining how to do it if you are nervous.

    My phone though, was a total POS, so I got an iphone 3g and did the jailbreak thing, until I figure out what I want to do next. Edge is fast enough for most data I need to send or receive. I get about 150 kbps. Sad, my iphone 3g runs circles around my old mytouch 3g which was supposed to be a newer generation. (No multi-tasking is a minor irritation, I will admit) From my experience, android still has a little catching up to do.. but 2.2 was light years ahead of 1.6.

    No sweat Kwik, didn't think anything by it.

    I've been to the related forums and have read and found the steps and all which helped me make the decision to flash. Just wanted to bring the topic to the forum I spend most of my day reading on.

    Cheers,
    jc
