Ultimate Droid 3.0 just came out yesterday. Having Gingrbread on my Droid 1 is very fast compared to Froyo.

It's a live background. There's a free version, and a donate version for 0.99.

There is an ultimate mod out for the Captivate. I tried it and wasn't too impressed.

Ultimate mod or Ultimate Droid? Ultimate Droid is the best custom ROM I've ever used, especially since 3.0 came out.

Shouldn't need task killer if you got rid of bloatware

I'm rooted with Fission 2.4.3 ROM and switching between Gingerbread and Black Out theme on my Droid 2 Global. I want liberty but the D2G is having problems with the infared sensor on 1.5 I think.

Task killers hurt battery life.

+1 to not needing a task killer. If you want to just backup programs you won't use get the ADB shell working and rename the .apk to .apk.bak. I tried using titanium before but that felt the need to just delete them then I had to pull the files off of a friend's phone to fix it.

How's the battery life with Liberty? Wouldn't mind trying it on my D2 but using the stock rom I already get 3 - 4 days between charges, so I don't want to mess that up.

Mine usually lasts a day or two but I use mine heavily throughout the day. The battery life is better than it was with the stock ROM. But I use Internet, games, streaming audio, etc. a lot throughout the day.

im using an OG droid with Ultimate Droid on it. Using a custom very low voltage kernel.

Battery life is decent for my usage. Some phone calling, a zillion texts and some email and Flow (facebook app). I will be at 60% after 13 hours usually. not too bad.

Gotta give six credit for getting me to try UD. I sure was stubborn about it.

I updated to Liberty v2 last night and I am liking it so far. It's very fast. I will post regarding battery life later. Also, Titanium Backup is a must have app for anyone that changes ROM's.
