SELFKANG, I believe, is CM9.

EDIT: Love what your doing with this thread. Its fantastic, and I enjoyed reading what you have so far.

What are your screen brightness settings at for these tests? Auto would of course skew the results... I have noticed it seems like different roms have different stock brightness. I am a scientific person, but I am not super knowledgeable about Android, so excuse me if this is a stupid question!
Well when you really break it down, the steps to modifying a Turbocharged Diesel engine and overclocking a modern computer processor are VERY comparable.

Not a stupid question at all. I was halfway through my first ROM test, before I thought of the auto brightness issue. I turn auto off, and set it at 50% brightness. I'll add that note to the OP...thank you for bringing it up.

And yes, CM9 is Selfkang; I was in a bit of a rush to get the thread up, and didn't label every ROM with the correct title. I'll get on it today, so there's no confusion moving forward.

Default Launcher Review???

Quick question guys... would you like me to add an ICS Launchers review to the first page? I'd cover the three major ones - Nova, Apex, and Trebuchet - but I have to warn everyone... I'm partial to Nova, since I've paid for Prime, and have been part of the private beta team for quite a while. I also have no intention of purchasing another launcher, so any additional features that Apex may include in a paid version, would not be reviewed. I think, at this point, that many of us have settled on a launcher already, but some people may find a review (other than those on the Play Store) helpful. Let me know what you think...thanks guys.

Love the thread. I would definitely appreciate a launcher review. I've been switching between Nova and Apex (Apex because they give free evaluation license to those who download the beta builds). I'm just looking for the stablest and quickest one

Really weird side note... in searching for app png files on Google Play, I noticed that you can now purchase a GSM Galaxy Nexus on there?! WTF is happening here?! It's really a sweet idea, but it's only available in the US at the moment...a market that's dominated by CDMA networks. Launching this option in Europe first sounds like it would have been a better business decision... just a thought.

Love the thread. Great time and effort has been put into this thread without a doubt. I left the links up for you to test my rom in the thread. I think.

Thanks for stopping bye man! I really appreciate any and all dev support I can get! I've got the Advanced Beta #1 downloaded and ready for testing, just as soon as I complete the Gummy tests.

My hope is (along with helping end users make a decision) that developers like yourself, can take a peak at where your ROMs are performing well or where they're performing poorly, and adjust things accordingly. I think that giving and receiving feedback from devs is vital...otherwise, you guys never know what people really like, and what issues people are running into.

I'm also attempting to take a little bit of work off your hands, by answering the more general questions here; questions like how to flash, which recovery to use, keyboard backlight issues, and whether a ROM is also made for GSM or not, are all things I can handle here, so devs can focus on more important things. Feel free to think of this as a User Forum (like the CM9 thread) for all users, and you can send people here for the more general information and troubleshooting.

Thanks again for stopping bye, and keep up the great work!
