Default Brand New To GNexus...Best ROM/Kernel Combo?

I was looking at the CM9 Nightly with Trinity kernel or stock IMM76I with Trinity kernel (if it works together...waiting for a reply).

I literally haven't used the phone yet besides speed test and then rooting/unlocking/custom recovery so....just curious to hear opinions

Aokp rom and James bond 3.1 kernel. They will give you stability, performance and fantastic battery life.

I had read that AOKP is extremely buggy still....

I know even on the Kindle Fire it is as well.

We need a rule for 'best rom/kernel' posts. There is no such thing and there never will be.

Literally like asking, "whose the best comedian?" or "What's the best type of fruit?"

Its all subjective. Just read the description of each rom/kernel and determine which one is the best for your personal needs.

It's pretty to switch up rom/kernel combinations, especially when you first get your phone.

Try GummyNex and Franco kernel.

Also, I highly recommend you stay away from AOKP. Alot of the posts about "this phones laggy etc etc" keep coming from people who are running AOKP. Just avoid it, maybe dab in it.

CM9 is pretty good for me too with franco.

Have you thought about paranoid android? I run it with james bond kernal.. its built upon cm9.. hacked nova/market.. its a tablet hybrid. That means it gives you the function of a tablet while still maintaining the aesthetics of a phone.. its really a great rom. Its in its early stages but is still one of a kind. Check it out in either the cdma or GSM section..

I posted a screen shot of it.
