Default Im on MDK, help deciding new rom.

Im on MDK now; I want to be using the latest ROM available for my phone without loosing the capabilities of having a custom recovery. What is the best ROM to install on my MDK version? I would prefer something with the latest android version. Thanks in advance.

I'm on a rooted stock tw ROM with android version 4.2.2. I can't stand the bloated ROM from Samsung anymore. some apps lag and I hate that.

Understandable, I'd honestly recommend slimkat. I'm generally more of a cm guy but slim has made some really nice innovations in terms of the look and feel. They completely redid the recent apps menu with the 3.4 weekly

Pic related, it's very minimal and less intrusive. That's the slim kat recent apps menu.

i've been using this google play dev edition rom http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2643031

it's got the goodness of AOSP with the advantage of not having to build drivers from scratch. it's freaky how badly TW slows down the entire phone!

I've been running Eclipse Progressive Build 7 for the past month. I have flashed just about every ROM out there and this is the most staple, fast, smooth with great battery life ROM of all of them. I understand everyone has there own opinion and preferences. You have to go to the Developer's web site to download, go here: http://www.elementalxdesigns.com/ecl...ild07-(1-28-14). I promise, you won't be disappointed.

It's TW with an AOSP feel.

It's really fast too, much better than the normal Samsung bloat. The only problem i have with it is that the notifications appear to be in the reverse order. Newer items appear on top.
