New Android Rom

If you happen to have an HTC Droid Incredible 2, I highly recommend checking out the following site: MROM

I have experimented with using various roms on my phone. I have used the Cyanogedmod 7 Nightlies for the most part. Usually, I will install a rom for a day or so before going back to CM7.

But this MROM, wow. It is built using CM7, but specifically for the Incredible 2. Battery life is great, it seems quite stable, and it is visually GORGEOUS. I am particularly fond of the battery meter on the top status bar.

You can see the battery icon at the top right. Notice also the icons all along the left side. It reminds me, somewhat, of seeing the Windows 2000 icons for the first time after upgrading from Windows 98SE (in a good way.)

MROM is Gingerbread (2.3.7), but visually looks like similar to what I have seen of ICS.

I have been using it for a couple days now, and I expect to stick with it for a while.

Anyway, please go check it out!
