Default reccomend a rom?

I was going to try the ICS port but dont want to ruin the true one when its out, plus i read GPS is so so and I need that for my running apps.

Ive tried a few but always lean back to stock, but am getting ancy. Can anyone reccomend a nice clean ROM that works well with all the apps and is good on battery.

I might go back to SuperOSR but wanted something different. Tried CY7, Zulu, and like one or two more.
thanks

Carbon is pretty awesome. Its oxygen based so it is IMHO faster and much more stable than cyanogen

+1 to carbon!

i'm always confused when i see people recommend cm because frankly, in my experience, it runs like junk on this phone.

Very true, Sad that it's not stable on a developer phone.

For me the best custom ROM is Oxygen, No problems at all.
Google Nexus 4
CM 10.1

Cm7 runs very stable for me, even on my old heroc that was barely half the phone this one is, with the same apps/launcher setup.

personally i'd say miui over cm7. i was so frustrated with cm7 i wanted to sell my phone. it's a bit better now but it's so hard to switch back to cm7 after getting used to the dialer, sms app and themability of miui. and the stability. all i ever got from cm7 was reboot loops and phone hangs that made me miss my alarms.
