I don't want his new phone glitching out on him cause he won't really understand. I spent a few hours today after downgrading to 2.15 hboot and tried 4 different roms and had each one glitch out on me in some way within an hour of use except official cm11 but I only spent maybe 40 minutes with it before making a backup and trying the 3 other roms all 4.4.2 roms.

I'm starting to think I probably can't depend on any of them except an official 4.1.1 or older rom to be reliable enough but now I can't find any working download links for the older roms.

Anyone think they can help? I would give him this one cause it's still stock and keep the one s myself but he doesn't like anything this big and I personally like the s3 size.

If it was me I would use an RUU to get the phone back to stock. Its not the most up to date version of android but its completely stable, good battery life and a good camera. I think Sense 4 will look pretty good coming from a desire on stock 2.2!
