So I've just rooted my SII and have even recovered it from softbricking it when I installed the wrong kernel... Now I am looking for a custom ROM to finally get the type of customization I want from my phone. However since I have softbricked it so easily, I am now weary of installing any ROM that might fit my phone's specifications.
I am a rooky in rooting, but I have noticed that when selecting a new ROM you have to bear in mind the current kernel version, firmware and android version of my current phone. However I do not know what to look for to see if this ROM fits my phone's preferences and I was hoping one of you could help me with this issue. I'm looking for a highly customizable ROM that will speed up my phone and give me improved battery life. The one I thought would do the trick is: NeatRom.
Can someone tell me what is important to look for when selecting a ROM and if the NeatRom I selected is fit for my device.
