When do you think ICS is going to be released; should I install an ICS-based ROM?

Tip us?

ICS seraphim is awesome. Works very smooth and is polished. There are very few known issues with most of these roms, nothing that should be a deal breaker for anyone.

Apex launcher is infinately better than touchwiz.

Also, ics stock revamped is another great rom ported over by smartguy044.

I could also say you dont know what you're talking about if that's my opinion.
Im a senior software engineer who simply does not have the time to even look at Roms.
Does that make me "nuts?"
it takes about a half hour to read what you need to know, and another half hour to root, flash cwm, and flash a ROM...are you seriously that busy?

Reading will tell you all of the features in less time than it takes somebody else to look them up for you, type a response, and for you to read their response. Trying out the roms yourself will show you everything and you can figure out your own likes and dislikes of every ROM.

And then the time to set up the rom, try different roms, discover compatibility issues, find out which apps cause battery drain..etc...


It can be much more time consuming than what you're describing.

Go into android development and check it out. So far it's less lag than stock 1.83 kernel and cool lockscreen and other features with jkay

I can get 2-3 days, maybe even more if I keep the power off. But less if I actually turn on the screen and use it.

What are you trying to find out here? The battery on the Note is what it is.
