Need stable fast clean ROM/Kernel
I'm the kind of guy that just wants something tried, tested and true. I rooted and flashed my phone when I first got it to Jedi Mind Trick v6 which was new back then. My Kernel is 3.0.41-T989-ICS-faux123-008
But as of recently I've been experiencing lots of freezing and random reboots. It's about time I get a new Rom and maybe Kernel if necessary.
I know there are a bunch out there and I simply want a stable version of a ROM that's clean, simple and fast, and a Kernel that optimizes battery life I guess. No experimental nightly test builds and what not cause very likely this may be my last upgrade before I decide I'm scrapping this phone. This is basically a last chance upgrade to see if I can still push out another year on this phone.
What are the top few choices/combinations of rom/kernel you guys would recommend?
If I remember the process correctly, I need to backup everything on titanium backup, use some darkwipe thing to clear everything, then flash the new rom, then google now in that development mode right? It's been so long, let me know if the process is made easier or something now lol
