I've been running 4.1.2 for over a year now and it runs really great, I've tested many newer ROM's but they all had lag issues or just didn't have all the features I was looking for.

Recommend:
Paranoid Android 2.57 or 2.54
Zen v10 kernel
gapps-jb-20121011-signed
4.2_TransformPack_v2.1

Here's the entire thread about 4.1.2 ROM's discussion/links:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2250855

Also here are the links/threads to the specific zip files I'm using:
2.55+ Paranoid Android + gapps
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1892214

v3.0.53-ZenSERIES_v10_4.1_Final_Tuna
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2072787
But download link in thread is dead.

4.2_TransformPack_v2.1
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1969488

When flashing I installed in the following order:
ROM
Gapps
Transformpack
Kernel

Not sure if it makes any difference, but just remember to make a back up of your current ROM and have another functioning ROM zip file on your device before flashing, just in case.
LOL

Also highly suggest running in tablet mode.

To me, the best right now would be Vanir 4.3. Crazy fast and everything works.

No offense to you but if you want to know what the best rom for your device is then you have to gain some time and patience to flash different roms, or in the very least read up about them on the threads here on XDA yourself. This is a developer community meant for adults that want to gain and share knowledge of how things work on mobile devices. This is not where you come to have answers spoon-fed to you because you are too lazy to take some time and figure things out for yourself. No one will ever be able to tell you what is the best for you, except yourself. If you don't have the patience then you should use the Nexus Toolkit, flash back to stock, lock your device and enjoy how the rom runs because those that are meant to be in this community have patience and make time to test what works for them. I may come off rude but this is just how it is, too many users come in here now and expect things on a silver platter, that is not how XDA works.

Do you know how much time and effort goes into building roms and kernels, or how much time people put into testing applications and settings in order to share their experience with others? It is kind of selfish to disregard those people by claiming you don't have enough patience to put some effort in yourself.

I have put months and months into just refining custom kernel settings that help users to gain optimal performance without sacrificing battery, lots of members come to my thread looking for help, if I decided I didn't have the time or patience to create a thread that gives a good base for setting up a custom kernel then alot of new users would be in the dark on what to do. Contributing is what makes this forum great, not looking for others to make the effort and for you to reap the benefits.

I think it's rather unfair that all the people on this thread have had to provide info and links to you when you could just as easily use the XDA search function and find them yourself. You've been a member since 2010, you should know better.
