I've been on Project V for awhile now and I'm afraid to try CM. O don't want to fix what's not broken but I am curious to try it out.

Project V is nice,I was an original edt fan since December but cm7 is so customizable and super smooth.Cm7 is probably the best out there right now.Just nanadroid your rom,odin to stock, flash overstock kernel, then nighly and you're there man..
Is there really a lot of issues with it like everyone says it should I just drink the koolaid already?

But some, if your lucky are getting amazing GPS on it. Depends on the phone I guess. My GPS unfortunately has re-arranged and changed its 3 letters into GPOS.... lol

I always have gps off like it doesn't exist anymore. I got tired of flashing nightlies and installing the whole process almost every day.I get semi accurate readings just using the triangular network (just T-Mobile) and I'm off by half a block or so without gps.The phone won't sleep as soon as gps kicks in anyways inducing massive battery drainage ..

Kinda off-topic, but:
I broke down and just got a 20 channel WAAS enabled BT GPS Receiver unit like the one at this link. Gives 1 foot accuracy for minimal cost in return. Hell if this phone had a GPS option at launch and they said the GPS model was only $25 more, I would have gotten it, so I figure paying the extra $25 now for very accurate GPS results is well worth it, especially considering that the BT radio is friendlier on your battery than the gps radio is.

The cool thing is CM7 just patched in GPS via Bluetooth support a few weeks ago and supposedly works very well and gives up to 1 foot accuracy. Well see I guess...

Has anybody flashed in gingerbread bootloaders yet.I'm curious on the benefits.
People claim it has better battery and a slightly more stable overall function, but at the loss of accessing the external sdcard, if that even matters to you...

EDIT: This is just what I have read and do not have the experience to know for sure. But I am also going to GB Bootloaders soon to find out for myself. lol

Scorpion did you receive your 20 ch waas gps yet.How's it working?
Yeah I got it and it works Ok I guess, not exactly what I had hoped though, but its always within 7 feet accurate according to GPS Test and other apps, but according to Google maps the little blue dot is barely within 20 feet and sometimes MUCH further than that. I'm still working on getting it supported natively as I was wrong, CM7 does not currently support BT GPS yet and we need 3rd party apps from the Market like "Bluetooth GPS Provider" in order for the ROM/Apps to use the External GPS device. I'm starting to think my phone is just super shy and private and doesn't want anyone to know where she is....

I agree with the batt issue being a little "sucky" (pun intended) and there are some things I miss about my last ROM (NexGen v2 ROM with Bali 1.8.8 Kernel) but I'm going to try to stick this one out. I've stuck with the RC and semi-cured my "flash madness" with the nightlies, but like any addict, I keep watching the results of them. The Theme Changer was a surprise I will admit. Jury's still out on what I think of it. Kinda don't like the lack of power down/device remains on when charging and the broken data issue (that can be fixed by toggling airplane mode on/off). All in all I've tweaked it as much as I dare to until it's stable. I use it as a daily and don't deter from it but I carry 2 phones the other a Nexus S (still prefer the Vibe because it's my personal vs the Nexus being business) so I guess I don't have a big fear of it messing up too much.

Gps isn't an issue for me since I hardly use it since I haven't seen a device that measured up to the Garminfone I used to own. I mean it works, just doesn't do the best job of "locking" precisely.

Oh, lack of "download mode" just makes it so I have to take a few extra steps but... I guess with this ROM, all the good out weighs the small amount of bad... IMO.
