    I'm wondering what the best ROM is for the HTC Thunderbolt. I would like one that is almost error free, easy to install, easy to install themes on, high tech, with a good user interface, and stable. I would also like to know how to install a ROM on my Thunderbolt as I just got this phone last week. I've loaded a ROM on my old droid 2 before so I'm not a complete noob.

    Bamf. Remix and sense 3.0 port are great roms. Cm7 is a faomus Rom but still have some bugs to fix but its getting better by the day.

    I don't know about themes, but I've been running Blackhole 2.0 with LauncherPlus for a month now. The ROM dev allows you to decide between Sense and ASOP versions of music and SMS apps, plus more.

    Honestly. Stay away from gb there are still quirks. Because it was a alpha leak.

    If you're looking for stability, I would go with any of the Froyo based ROMS. All other Gingerbread ROMS are going to have bugs. Once the official leak arrives that won't be a problem.

    BAMF ROMS have been great for me, and CM7 is getting closer to a full release

    There are some great guides up in the rooting sub forums to get you started. If you have any questions there's always someone willing to help there as well. Good luck

    x2. stick to froyo roms if your main concern is stability. i'm using bamf 1.8 now, pretty stable, no issues.

    I've been using Gingervitis 3D 1.0 for half a wweek now, and it seems to be really stable (much more so than Blackhole ROM 2.0). I'm running a stick battery, and after flashing and then recalibrating the battery, I can now get 12 hours of very heavy use from the phone. It is a Sense 2.1 ROM (with a 3.0 lockscreen), but once you throw LauncherPro over it, it is very usable.

    I have been running bamf 1.8.6 and it has been working perfect. I think I will try a gingerbread rom today, but I think I should get my head checked for wanting to change anything. I applaud everyone for making this a useful thread. These threads are usually filled with d-bags stating that it is a personal decision and you should try different roms.

    Gingeritis 3D is the shiznit!!! The only issue I have with it is the answer call button is sometimes missing, Other than that it is fast, smooth and good on the battery.
