Give it a shot! It works great for me, wouldn't consider going back to the Rogers rom even if it was posted here.
Wondering what you used to flash these fastboot files? Rsdlite??
Also I would assume that this new ROM would no have all the Rogers bloatware - are everything working properly (ie. MMS, APN setup... etc.)?
I've tried the new Arctic (v2.0.0) a few days ago.
Root --> CWM --> nandroid backup --> wipe --> install zip from SD
Didn't quite like the custom ROM...
-Missing Facebook integration - got used to friends' facebook picture showing up in contacts
-Missing the favorite contact widget
-One of the motorola process kept on crashing
-can't change docked item
*I'm sure all these can be solved with a new launcher but I didn't want to spend more time digging*
Then I restored from my backup --> now I have the original Rogers ROM running.
So bottom line, it's a pretty safe way of flashing given that you have a backup to restore from.
Now, I'm curious about flashing one of these "retail" stock ROMs. The question is whether to flash it using RSDlite or from CWMrecovery.
