Default Your favorite rom, kernel and settings

Hi guys! Lot's of threads are about "the best rom" or "best kernel and battery life" but there is no best rom or kernel. Everyone has his own taste Please share your favorite rom&kernel + your settings. and offcourse share your experience with performance and battery life

I'm currently trying out a few roms and will get back when I see some good replies here!

I'm on stock 4.1.2 image with stockish custom kernel from _thalamus and it's great compared to 4.1.1. Chrome runs at same speed as stock Browser now and memory management got alot better.

One problem with stock ROMs: features limited, otherwise, they are great in terms of stability.
For me, i'm balancing between codenameandroid and MIUI(miui.us versions).
androniennn.

Was using CNA before for 2 months, but always thought that stock is more smoother. Don't mind that much for features and got fed up with constant updating.

I used stock non rooted for some time and I liked the smoothness. The thing I missed was BLN and some other options. Also the battery life with moderate use is less good then some custom roms. Now flashing strawberry rom =)

I'm rocking CM10 w/ Marmite right now since they merged in 4.1.2 asap.. As soon as AOKP Build #5 is released I'm jumping back on the Unicorn saddle w/ Marmite though.. Love me some unicorns!
