Android 2.1 ERE25 Based ROM Galore!

Here's the quick summary. ERE25 was the build of the 2.1 OTA update that was supposed to be released in January for the Droid. It was pulled since there were still some "vulnerabilities" in it (holes that could lead to root).

Well, now, many devs have build cooked ROMs with this 2.1 build as the base. The advantages are numerous, since this was specifically optimized for the Droid. Advantages of ERE25 based ROMs are:
  • Native Multitouch across Browser, Gallery, and Maps (the official MT browser is fast!)
  • Working autobrightness, keyboard backlight, LED notifications
  • Improved battery life
  • Improved stability
  • Droid specific optimizations?

There are currently 3 devs with ERE25 based ROMs:

Pete's Bugless Beast

ChevyNo1's Simply Stunning

BlackDroid's Ultimate

If you've been waiting to root or switch from an old reliable 2.0.1 based ROM, now is the time!
