Having only recently switched from MDJs CyanogenMod7 v.2.6 NAND A2SD+CWM to Pongsters ROMs, my experiences may help.
I have tried / re-tried both of Pongsters ROMs that you quote above, and without doubt - BOTH are far better, faster & much more reliable than the old MDJ CyanogenMod7_v.2.6 ROM. This is no way a slant on MDJ - I loved his ROM's, but was fed up with the lack of support etc.
Pongster on the other hand is active, and the support here @ XDA is incredible for both of his ROM's. I guess HyperDroid-CM7-v1.0.4 is nearer to your old MDJ ROM as its also CM7, however, I favour HyperDroidGBX-v11. Its blindingly fast, very smooth & a joy to use. No crashes - very stable.
Without doubt the best I have tried. Hope this helps
Do you guys experience data drops that dont reconnect? I'm using americandroid gb sd rom but the only problem it has it's that data doesnt reconnect. Ive been thinking to switching to a nand built but just want to make sure the data problem isn't a gb problem. Thanks
