Thanks! To everyone here that contributes and to everyone who has wrote ANYTHING that I have read that has helped me. I have been "hacking" phones for years. It all started with the Razr, one of the first phones I back in the day :)... I have done so much reading and surprisingly I was able to install many cooked roms without the need to post any questions. There are MANY detailed tutorials around here. I read what I needed to and looked around.
I didn't really get into installed cooked roms until about 3 days ago. In those short 3 days I have went through 3 or 4 different roms/themes/setups just to get it EXACTLY how I wanted it. Right now I am using:
NFSFAN's WM 6.5.5 23541 SYS/XIP GENERIC CARRIER ROM with SENSE UI 2.5 on a Verizon Touch Pro.

This is the 4th one I have used and I will tell you why. I am on Verizon( ugghhhh I live in Montana I really have no other choice). And with the phone being so crippled(Took out memory and other stuff compared to Sprint, from what I read) I was unable to use a couple different Roms. I WANTED to use them, I LOVED the look, but with everything installed the phone was SO lagged it was nearly impossible to use. On a sprint phone it would of been AWESOME I think. It might not of even been the rom, something might have been wrong when I installed it. I tried MightRom6 and I did like it, the only reason I switched is because I wanted the "Sense" instead of TouchFlo, I don't know why, I just wanted something new, but I LOVE it.

Right now with this cooked rom, and tacchan23's Sense Theme and Top bar I LOVE it. Run's fast as hell. Faster then the Stock rom. Looks AMAZING. Smooth. I LOVE Sense. Right now my phone is set up exactly how I want it. Sense is way better then TouchFlo IMO.

To anyone who is new to installed cooked roms and is on Verizon I highly suggest NFSFAN's Rom if you want Sense, or Mighty if you want TouchFlo(Might is still a little faster from what I can tell, But just doesn't have the look and feel that I want). I wish I had sprint because from what I hear their phones have more memory, and from what I encountered will be able to run certain roms that a Verizon HTC touch Pro won't(I could be wrong).

Anyway, Thanks to everyone who is wrote a tutorial or anything. Thanks to everyone who has worked on ANY cooked rom. Big props to all cooks, they have amazing skills!

Awesome site and awesome job on everything!

Thanks :). I've been browsing for over a year, I signed up pretty much a year ago, mainly used this place for simple questions. But I got into the cooked rom scene pretty fast. I was tired of installing all these programs to "customize" my layout, just to slow down my phone even MORE. I love these roms because, not only do I get more functions and a better look than my stock rom, but It is WAY faster, which is really nice. I HATE stock verizon rom. It's ugly, slow, and everything about it is lame. I have tried Wisbar/WBA Desktop/ MObile Shell 3.5, I like them ,but they all slow my phone down WAY to much. Now after I install a cooked rom, I install PhoneX, S2U2 and SMS-Chat, and that is all I need. My phone looks perfect and I am not suffering a loss of resources!

Big props to all the work that is done around here.
