Question [Q] Any stable rom for desire ?

Tried all the avilable roms avilable here for desire , but non of them works perfectly fine, Some roms managed to run smoothly but for just some days and then it becomes to crash and crash, then I have to reflash them or struggling to find another rom, may that runs smoothly,

Plz anyone tell me which rom to use as a daily driver , I compromise on camera and video recorder , but it should rum smoothly, m fed up to change roms again and again , and setting up my phone from 0 again .....


Currently using Beanstalk Release 2

Pretty much all gingerbread roms should be almost 100% stable.
My beanstalk build isnt too bad either. It all depends on how you define stable.

If you have tried ALL of the available ROMs here not sure what else we can suggest...or do you to want list to the ones you have actually tried so we don't go round in circles

Nobody can tell you exactly which ROM is best for you, but there are plenty of stable ones.

Generally better to stick to gingerbread ones if you want stability.

Make sure you partition your sdcard properly using gparted or 4ext recovery (not minitool or clockworkmod recovery) for a2sd

I'm currently using Beanstalk Release 2, without any problem, except the video recording which doesn't work: camera seems to work, but does not generate any video file.
To send or receive MMS, I have replaced SMS/MMS by chompSMS which works well.
The Wifi Hotspot also works when using the posted fix. It would be nice to include this fix in the next release !

It would also be nice if Chromium could have a look at the video problem !

Are you sure it isn't some particular app that's causing the crashes as you have tried all the ROMs? If not then card issue - quality or format as already stated above, or your phone is starting to fail - it does happen.

I have found many ROMs to be unstable, but as already stated above, the GB ROMS should pretty much all work as designed.
Cool droid and cm 8 JG stable have full backups resident on my card ready for quick recovery from other builds. When it all goes wrong i go back to one of these.

CM 8 JG stable has some extra features but occasional brief stalls and some things don't do quite what they say, probably due to options being in more than one place.

Cool droid one the most stable outside of an original build with ample space for apps.. .

Had a quick go with beanstalk and well impressed for an early build despite no stand alone calender.

Most others tried and discarded, mainly due to not supporting the early ROMs stand alone calender (must ask that question) or silly things like no contacts selection from create msg (How TF can folk leave that out) before I even get to stability issues.

After ensuring card is good quality and formatted correctly, I would strongly suggest OP look at running a build with only critical requirement stuff installed, Then add one more app at a time and use for a day or two and see when it fails.

addendum
I have seen some of the devs state that older recoverys may be causing some issues with certain ROMS. - Worth looking at.
Galaxy S3 (dead - fallen from grace aka my pocket) - If only my foes were destroyed so easily
HTC Desire (keeps coming back)
ZTE blade (usually as remote control now)
Old Symbian Nokia (in car as gets signal where new ones dont, battery lasts days and has voice dial, tomtom and some talking books)

Are these roms based on Kitkat 4.4.2 ?

Oups ... sorry !

Anyway, I understand there's no solution at the moment to fix the video recording issue when using any kitkat rom
