P.S. I apologize for the flameish response but I feel a lot of patronage for this site and it's members because of the work massive amount of work and personal time they have spent to make my 'legacy' phone go out of it's comfort zone just to bring us features, options and a longevity we never expected from this phone. So please don't taint the hard work of the developers by making posts with titles as such.

Yeah, I agree that the title is not appropriate. However, *Spyware* is not the main point. I do care about *stability* and *energy use* of ROM. Another message I would like to convey is 'Do NOT declare a ROM is stable until it is proven stable.' Offering users unstable stable ROMs will only give 3rd party ROMs a bad name.

Perhaps some 3rd party ROMs are faster than stock ROM (2.1) (I don't think any 2.1+ ROM can be faster). But, you can't compare the stability and energy use with the *pure* stock ROM. For example, I charge my battery once and keep it running for 3-4 days! I have never had any issue with the latest stock ROM. Everything works so perfectly! I don't need to be a flash maniac that flash my phone and re-configure it every time. OTA is so easy, smooth and not painful. A phone is a phone. It is a tool that helps you. I don't really like a phone that drives me crazy, eats my battery, and gives crashes again and again. Personally, a stable smart phone with less but essential and *stable* features is better than one with many more features but buggy.

Therefore, a stock android ROM is not a choice.

So, in a way, I must admit that gnubot is right.

But we can't deny that the work that JieeHD, dastin1015, elelinux and other devs did is pretty awesome!

And to finish, I don't really remember how many months HTC devs took to make a correct release of the new Sense...

If you are tried of sluggish new sense ports, why not try the pure official RUU stock ROM. Do not try Villain V13, that's definite rubbish.

Well, Sense is really good and provides many useful widgets that do not require unnecessary permissions than the original 2.1. However, I admit that HTC sense weather is just a beautiful rubbish. I can't see the weather data curve of each hour and news. So, to fix it, I installed an android 2.1 weather MOD.

To my mind, this is somewhat a useless topic...
XDA developers are about the community and testers, about finding something new and useful and implementing into our phones or whatever. If you consider yourself "I bought a phone I need to be able to call and text messages" then you, I believe, are on a wrong site.

Besides my personal opinion about it, I have to add, that 2 years ago when I bought HTC Hero, with 1.5 version, bluetooth out of the box wasn't even working, HTC for 6 months at least was promising to release 2.1 version, at some point I just quit waiting and got here, seen way bigger progress than HTC did. When I was creating tickets asking them when approximately update will show up giving 3, 6 months as an option, they were saying - sorry we do not know exactly.

So I am surprised that somebody found that support useful
Cheers
