What's the difference?
I've noticed that a lot of people add on their rom description, in a sniffy way.. "not cooked"
Are they worse?

Cooking ROMs often introduces new bugs. Compiled/Build ROMs are at the level that OEMs could do and can therefore change more.
There also are kitchen tools for cooking where there are no tools to make compiling easy.

My personal opinion is that cooking ROMs requires less skill than compiling one. Although I've seen some ROM cooks do awesome stuff and compiled ROMs that weren't anything special. So it's mostly dependent on the ROM really.

Thanks. It's the conclusion that I came too. What I've noticed is pple deodexing roms, cherry picking stuff like the bionic and similar code, adding all the mods they can and calling it their rom!
I'm using one I put together and it's superb but I'd never post it or claim it's mine as all I did was cut and paste.
