Hello all,

I worked a long time with the HTC Sensation, tested roms up till the last ones here on the forum, but finally he doesn't work anymore (even no charging light with different battery's).

So it was time finally to switch to Samsung as it's the producer of most Android phones, so most support, roms,...

I haven't followed this Samsung forum section yet, which are the newest & stable roms at the moment that you can recommend ?

PS : i like that startscreen with news / facebook / agenda... in squares, a bit windows 8 like news overview (I don't know how it's called), is this also in a recent rom or where can i find the apk file ?

I think I will receive the Samsung next week with the old Jellybean Android rom.
Bought it for +-€200 second hand in excellent condition, don't want to pay laptop prices of €400-€500 for the S4/S5, as long as it's fast enough, 4G and HD screen i'm satisfied
My friend recommended the LG Nexus 5 of €300 (better than the Iphone) but that's again 1/3 more expensive.

Thanks for any tips!!!

Kit Kat rom , my recommendation is omni
If you like 4.3 ROM, amcha.
The tile thing, I think you could just simply use a launcher to achieve it.

one size doesn't fit it all - that's why are all those great ROMs out there...chose the one you like and suits your needs...for me is stock+root+DeKnox...

if still has warranty don't even think about upgrading to stock 4.3.

Mod Edit

"Best" or "Recommend" ROM/kernel threads are not allowed on XDA.
Please test these things for yourself.
This is the only way you will get an unbiased opinion,and then, you can decide for yourself if it meets YOUR needs.

Don't forget to make a nandroid before you start.
