Default new to the g2...best ics rom?

i see there's been other threads that have asked the same thing....however, things like this change on a daily basis....just wanted to get an idea of where to start on an ics rom for the g2. thanks in advance for those who respond

also, if you do recommend something, any heads up on what trouble you've had with it.

They're all good honestly. For AOSP, Virtuous Quattro is heavily outdated, and the rest perform (very) similarly. Camera works, but it hasn't been completely figured out yet. Other than that, it seems like most of the issues have been figured out. In my experience with Andromadus I had absolutely no issues.

For Sense, again, they all perform similarly. They are somewhat faster when compared to the AOSP counterparts, but the camera doesn't work at all. Atm I'm running Sensewich B6 and it's very smooth/fast. No issues so far.
Device: HTC Vision (Desire Z)
Radio: 26.04.13.09

Previous ROM(s):
ILWT 634 by Tsubus
Virtuous G-Lite 2.0.1 by tun4f1sh
Gen.Y VisionX R3 by yozgatg

Current daily driver:
AOSP JB [4.2.2] Build 10 by cn.fyodor

If you're happy with a possible buggy Rom go for andro test. It is far smoother than the stable release (B2).

lol, stable release (Beta 2)

As crestofawave said there's only minor differences about performances from one to another and there are only few issues left.
I'm running CM9 Unofficial and i'm really happy with it. People seem to be happy with the lastest Andromadus too. And if you want Sense, don't hesitate, Sensewich B6 is really good.

Go to development area & just find the rom you want to try. As far as not knowing what to do, how lost are you? I see youre new here. Backing up? Flashing? Let me know

I use the one in my signature and I much enjoy it, it's fast, it's stable the camera/camcorder works, and the dataswap mod makes multitasking very smooth.

ics roms are too laggy once u add more apps on cuz you run out of ram fast. it sucks ive tried cm9/andro/mimicry. Its what you have to give up inorder to have ics on your phone.
