Slim ICS + Semaphore 0.9.5b.

Otherwise AOKP if you want the extra apps etc already installed from stock.

I can only recommend AOKP BlueLightning v1.1.0 or (if you prefer black) v1.1.1. Then flash Semaphore 9.9.5b and sit back and enjoy. I fell in love with my SGS again!

Based on those requirements, I'd recommend Froyo ZSJPK. Before you dismiss it just because it's froyo, I strongly implore you to check the thread out and perhaps even try the rom for at least a day.

I'm using Amestris Persian Gulf 7.2, it's great for daily use (no reboots, freezes, SoD, etc) and it covers all the stuff you need, also, it's based in official Samsung ROM, so, the GPS works flawlessly.

Greetings Guys,

I didn't want to start another thread on the same question & clutter your forums so I thought I would just post my question here. Sorry if this seems like a thread jacking so if its against forum rules then a Mod can just delete it for me.

I too have a SGS & my question is the same. My phone is stock & has always been & I still love my device to bits. Its just that I am getting a little tired & need a change but before I spend a lot of money on another new device, I thought I would try to change the experience of this device first.
I am sure if I choose the right ROM I will be good with it for a few more months.

Since ICS will not be officially launched for my phone I thought about trying it out. I only have about 60 apps on my phone but I could easily cut it down to 45 or so. I mainly use:

Messaging (WhatsApp)

I don't want anything too big either, I prefer something that weighs in a few MB less then the main stream stuff cos less is more for me.
What process would I need to follow & what do you guys suggest, perhaps a reason too would be awesome?

Thanks & I can see I am going to enjoy this community.

Vogie, for you normal use, the best you can do is to flash a stock rom, JVU is my advice, and put cf-root kernel. That's all. Your phone should work as well as you want/need.

Don't do any complicate thing.
