    Like said above there are way to many difference to list but IMO they are the 2 best roms out. I have been using koush Rom for the last 3 weeks and its my favorite but before that I used ultimate Droid which I thought was very good too. You would-be happy with either one, why don't you try both and decide which one fits you better.

    I'm trying them out, but besides the launcher differences I can't see anything else except very minor asthetic changes (i.e. black skin on ultimate droid, the VZW label is now "Ultimate Droid", etc..). I can't see anything substantial really.

    Okay here we go.
    Koushes rom has
    *360 rotate (you can rotate the screen upside down if you want)
    *Shows the battery percentage on the battery
    *Has a reboot option in the power off menu
    *You can skip songs by using the volume button when the screen is locked
    *Browser has user agent, displays moving avatars and can be used in full screen
    *MMS app has themes (dark or light), you can also change the led color
    *Has a built in terminal emulator
    *Has the latest app updates released from google's source
    *Has apps2sd
    *Has option to move apps from system to sd or sd to system
    *Has the nexus dock app *NOT SURE ABOUT ULTIMATE NOT HAVING THIS ONE.
    *Has the option to turn the phone to silent or vibrate by using the right pull tab on the lock screen
    *Has a moded music widget that lets you pause, go back or forward and displays cover art
    *Has a fully fixed corpcal app
    Ultimate Droid is missing all of these features
    Just to name a few.

    Think of Ford and Chevy, BMW and Audi, Chipotle and Qdoba, Dell and HP, Samsung and LG, etc. Its mostly personal preference unless ur really digging down into the OS. The average user won't notice a difference besides one is skinned and one isnt.

    I'm running the old school .3 because all the other updates don't play nice with my themes.

    Real stupid question but when I go to the cyanogenMod website it says for Nexus, yet this is in the droid section of the forum... So it works for the droid?

    It was ported by Koush for the Droid.

    Droid mod is 2.0.1.
    Download the Rom Manager app
    Install Cyanogen 5.0.5.7
    Wipe data and cache.
    The app does all the work. Kind of like DM.

    Does the app allow or me or anything for that matter to unroot my n1?

    You have to root your N1 prior...ROM Manager is for rooted phones only. Give this a look-see:

    Using ROM Manager you can switch between the two without a need for wiping your data...

    Video: Cyanogen to Blackdroid using ROM Manager | Droid Life: A Motorola Droid Blog

    Other differences between the two ROMs:

    *Cyanogen has more themes available in the ROM Manger app
    *Cyanogen 5.0.5.6 and above added the option to disable USB Debugging notification
    *Cyanogen 5.0.5.6 and above have the 5 column launcher drawer (launcher dependent)
    *Cyanogen 5.0.5.6 and above have new camera features (antibanding, focus mode, jpeg quality)

    Speaking of, looks like the new Ultimate Droid (9.8.0) is built from source code, like Cyanogenmod. Not sure if this is true or not, but I do like to see some competition in the ROM department (even if I stick to one).

    On another note: Decided to come over to Droid-land, crackberrymike?

    the only source UD has is "other sources"

    lol it's a good rom if you choose every other release.... but in the middle releases it's a nightmare.

    Yeah I think Pete got a little heated with him but if you pay attention he's using a lot of stuff from other devs but tried it last night didn't seem fast enough for me to be running a 1.2 kernel

    Yeah I saw Pete's twitter attack at him a couple months ago. I know some stuff is taken, but I cannot verify if it stolen or given. Idk, I liked it a lot, especially since he always added new stuff, but CM just is...better.

    Never really tried BBeast or BBeauty - nothing against him, never got around to it.

    R1Lover, I agree, blackdroid puts out a lot of stuff that should be termed "beta", but he doesn't specify. I am almost never using UD again, as 8.6.3 almost broke my phone - from screwing with the overclock, to breaking sync, etc, it just really let me down.
