Thanks for the info. I decided to go with the Modaco custom ROM. I think I've installed it properly. How can I check? In the About menu option, should it mention Modaco at all?

I have been using the modaco rom until the 2.1 leak and it's one of the best stable rom around in my opinion and hopefully Paul (the modaco rom developer) will have a 2.1 rom out soon.
