Post specifics on why you think Dutty's ROM 6 ROCKS!!
I'm starting this thread as tons of visitors to the main upgrading Kaiser thread check out the details of Dutty's ROMs and then read everyone's Kudos, mostly and a few rants here and there on the subsequent threads.. but none of them give the actual specifics on What feature or Specific in Dutty's ROM prompted them to shower all the praise on the replies.. as after a while, the responses like "Dutty.. you never stop dude".. "This Rom ROCKS..." "WOW.. what blazing speed"... are not defining enough to WHY His ROM(s) are greatness at its best.
So, with my lengthy explanation above.. I Hereby share my specifics of Likes and Dislikes.... hopefully more will share theirs and would then benefit others to feel more comfortable to flash the ROMs.. Say what?!! here we go:
-All MS programs/software are now VERY noticeably faster to load. for example: Live Search 2.5 load time takes 2 seconds or less from time I tap to usable search box. I've clocked it. AWESOME!!
-TouchFlo-(CUBE): is working flawlessly. It takes a few seconds to come up and go through its 3 sides ONLY the first time you use it after a soft-reset. Thereafter its INSTANT to 0.25 sec for it to pop up with thumb swipe. VERY VERY IMPRESSIVE and useful, atleast for me.
-QuickMenu: Those who haven't used this utility.. its near PERFECT on what it s supposed to do and it actually does even more than that. The feature of tabbed navigation of Programs and Settings folder is almost 3 times as fast as they load up when you go via the regular start menu. Its worth having in any PDA.
-As I said above that All MS programs are noticeably faster, I meant specifically that as there may be other programs that load faster as well but nothing that I could noticeably tell the difference. So, this may be due to .Net 3.5 having most speed gains on MS stuff.
-Dutty has put in LOT of thought in organizing the various 3rd party programs in various user-friendly and intuitive folders. For instance, I like that he has created a folder called System Tools under Programs and has very thoughtfully added System related stuff in it only. So, all "tweaking" stuff is in it and hence its easy to just go to that folder and find that program instead of looking in the main Programs and scrolling 20 pages down. There is also a "HTC Programs" specific folder. Self explanatory.
-COOL COOL WAY-COOL feature: This is something I didn't know about that touchFLO has or maybe its a custom feature that Dutty has cooked, if you need to minimize any open application/program, all you have to do is swipe from middle of screen and down, very natural, and the program minimizes. WHAT AN AWESOME WAY TO GO TO YOUR TODAY SCREEN to access/open something else that you need.
-My downloaded ROM is AT&T ROM w/ TouchFLO, Dutty's No.6 and its the one with all and everything stuffed in it. Here's the not too bad part about this, I was at first leaning towards loading the "Lite" rom and then just adding what I needed individually... but that would've not allowed me to even find out about some programs that exist and Dutty has included. Besides, after loading: TomTom6, MS Live Search 2.5, Opera 8.65, Mortgage Calc 3.5, PCM keyboard .12 and few more - all on the main memory, I've still left with 122 megs. It says 122 of 140megs available.
I want to give more of this but am tired of typing... so will take a break and share more experience so far.. tomorrow. Hopefully more will share theirs.
