I am trying this... as I have been using GingerClone V2 exclusively, since I payed the bounty, and it was the most stable. I kept running into weird issues with others upon updating su, and busybox on the others, not to mention the home screen lag-factor that stares at you blankly all the time, with no home screen anything, just a blank stare...

This ROM stared at me blankly for a bit a few times, but if I can get SMS pics form the messaging application it will be worth it... here and there.

Giving her a whirl...

this is the first rom that I flashed...I flashed it because it was all that I could get...it's better than stock is all that I will say...I had a few issues but didn't take note of them...I judge roms based off how many times I have to reboot and needless to say I had to reboot several times...well I finally have Glorious Overdose v2 and I don't want anything else...atleast until a real ICS is released!!

I have this rom, I love it. It was the only one I could download but well worth the search. I score 1700+ on quadrant standard. I've never rebooted due to freeze. Its super smooth.

I've been going through ROMs every few days or so trying to find one i like and i flashed this one today. I'm not sure how i feel about its speed, i guess i was just curious if anyone else has tried it and what they thought

Just installed it, very nice.. Will write more when I've had it on my SK for longer than a day. First impression is its very speedy and clean. Fixes some of the color choices tmobile made.. It includes carhome and a music player app, better email, better message app. Lots of free space to install things.

I noticed the same thing

This is by far one of the best ROMs I've used! There's a few cosmetic things I'd like changed, but I can look past that. This ROM is fast and sleek and it looks nice!

It was crap, had a feeling it was a rip off of other people's work. Worked ok for a few days then it started acting weird and pissing me off. So I said "screw this I'm going to flash "back to basics"
