UPDATE: Trinity and GlaDOS added.

Trinity ate three quarters of my API allowance today, GlaDOS the other quarter. But I don't think there is much else I can add at the moment anyway.

I removed the average and recent bar charts for the ROMs, leaving only the combined bar chart to make things simpler (and I kept the line-graph because it looks cool...)

There are now links to the data in its original numerical form (on google docs spreadsheets) at the bottom of the sidebar.

I plan to update all the ROMs and Kernels weekly.

EDIT: I see I have recognised contributor status! Thanks community!

UPDATE: Apex added to the NSUX chart. (bigxie has pushed out a 4.0.4 test version)

Also, put all the ROMs in rank order.

UPDATE: Performed my first attempt at a global update (all ROM and kernel threads)

...discovered a bug in my program, corrected it (thank goodness for having the sense to backup all of my working folder!)

...after that, the update went smoothly!

Currently the bars show the global average plus the most recent 10%. I think I will change this to add half the most recent score, a quarter of the one before that, an eighth of the one before that... etc. I think this is a better way of ensuring the results reflect current sentiment.

bedalus, there is a problem at the ROM graph display. The graph isn't shown and an error message is displayed (All series on a given axis must be of the same data type).

I don't think there's any need to bring back the performance benchmarks. I think all the 4.0.4 ROMs perform very close to each other:

41.86%
41.08%
40.53%
40.34%
40.09%
39.77%
39.72%
39.20%
39.09%
38.19%

In the top ten, if we take the average for the top 2 as 41.5% and for #9 and #10 as 38.5% that's only a difference of 3%

Let me roughly organise that list from the most modded to the least:

MIUIXPERIENCE #1 | StuffedCrust
[MIUI][2.4.6] Oodie pRiMe rOcket fUeled
MIUI Catalyst 2.4.6
CyberGR-MOD|NS.NGN ICS v10 HYBRID
Pixel Rom 1.72 ICS
Pool Party V .5 ICS
Crossbones v0.3.0
Brainmaster's Stock ICS 4.0.4
AOSP+ N.5
Stock ICS 4.0.4

...that's quite a wide range, from stock, to MIUI with various mods, all performing at near enough the same level.

My point is that what seems to affect performance most with 4.0.4 isn't the individual mods, but perhaps conflicting mods. I think some new developers have thrown everything possible into their ROMs when it would have been better to exercise restraint.

So I think what we have now is the need for developers to provide the right balance of eye candy and extra utility in the ROMs.

So how do we find out if they have got the balance right? Feedback from the users! I'm not saying that this UX benchmark is perfect for assessing that, but I think what it does do is roughly highlight which ROMs are drawing a crowd, and for the new root users and crackflashers alike, the UX provides a handy snapshot of where the action is.

I think if you take a relatively new ROM like Next ICS for example, where the developer has a distinctive creative vision, the skills to execute it, and is responsive in his thread, that will attract attention, and I think that's very clearly showing up in a good UX score. And if there were performance issues with the ROM, people would complain about it!

To summarise, I personally believe that when performance is not an issue, what matters most about a ROM is its unity, character, seamlessness, and these things can best be provided by developers with not only a creative vision, but also restraint and focus.
