You don't need roms for that, you need kernels try Franco's kernel. Cynogen is the most stable and bug free ROM out there.

Get the latest version from here and be sure to select the correct device or you know..... Brick etc...

You can find many kernels on the development section of your device
http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...us/development this is for maguro

You can use others but I prefer using Franco kernel as it is very easy to flash (you can download it's app from play store just type Franco kernels and download it. You can use auto flash option from it)

Remember these things are very tricky,it can make your device unusable if you install it incorrectly so..... Take care
And yeah nightlies are official so you better get them from their website as they are fully tested and it is less likely to go anything wrong with them

http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...rnels-t1792896 check it out and be sure to
thank that person and yeah it is for maguro

I know that people generally stick to Cyanogenmod due to it's stability, but I think it is overrated due to the fact that they support so many devices. I would prefer ROMs where the devs actually have the device, and focus on the device since they plan to have it for a while.

With that being said, here is my favorite ROM:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...i-rom-t2550477

I haven't had any issues (like apps that force close) on it, and apps run fine. In fact, I have also switched to ART and it is pretty stable and blazingly fast. My test was its battery life, and it lasted me close to 7 days on standby with groove ip running on it (receiving calls, texts, etc.), and 2 days with active usage with a sim card.

Hope this helps!

Default Its good to have choices

If you are new to flashing ROMs, usually CM 11 is an excellent choice.

However, to me speed, low RAM consumption and good battery life matters, so here are the reasons why I chose that ROM:

1. Linaro toolchain - Here is a link to explain why it is faster than standard CM:
http://www.androidauthority.com/lina...android-92831/

2. Dirty_V kernel - For speed, most of us Nexus users feel it is the best. It is an improvement over Franco's kernel
http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...irtyv-t2613655

So, I usually choose a ROM which uses the linaro toolchain. I also got a ton of cool features like notifications, omniswitch, etc. which you can read about in the ROM link from my previous post.

In the end, I am just giving you suggestions. Why don't you try creating a nandroid backup and then flashing many ROMs to see which one you like? Using the nandroid backup, you could always come back to the tried and trusted CM 11 !

Here is a small intro to nandroid backups which may be useful even in the future in case you mess up your phone with a bad update:

Hope this helps!
