Jw4 or jw5 with semaphore is rock solid, remove bloatware, apply themes and cool hacks

Just went from ICSSGS (onecosmic) 4.2 to this rom:

ICS333 RC1.1 by Team 3xtr3m3

its an ICS 4.0.4 ROM which works brilliantly. I switched from ICSSGS because they are still stuck on ICS 4.0.3 although I must say that one works just fine too!

its an AOSP rom, meaning that its trying to be as close to how google releases ICS themselfs. They made some enhancements, like a brightness slider in the pulldown menu etc, but they really work well and they dont "over do" it with extras.

Together with the newest Semaphore kernel this works like a charm.

Link to the ROM for more info:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1618757

Link to Semaphore kernel:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1468795

I can really recommend this combination.
Good luck with finding a ROM that works well for you!

Ps. It is kinda hard to define which rom is "best". Different Roms offer different kind of stuff. I like my ROM to be as clean as possible with not to many frills. Other people might want to have buttons for everything . Its just what you personally prefer. I suggest you read the ROM threads in the android dev section. Most of the time you can get a good glimpse about what a certain ROM offers and how stable or buggy it generally is by the first post and the suggestions / replies that are posted by users.

It depends. For GB, Darky's Rom or CM7. For ICS, Elite/Slim/CM9. Yet again, it depends...

I wan't a rom smooth and stable. You are affirming that android 4.0 is stable, right?
Android 2.3 is very good, I never test android 4.0, which is more smooth and fast?

Thank you!

First, there is always a risk when flushing... Do NAND and EFS before.
As for being stable - AFAIK, from reading and testing, some ICS roms out there are very stable and can be used for daily use. However, you should take in mind that while these ICS roms - as stable as they are - are still new, while GB roms have been outhere for a while.
I think that Slim is very stable. AOKP and CM9 also, yet a little more buggy...

Oh, ICS is now on 4.04. Some roms are on 4.03.

I agree with what you said, but Team ICSSGS have never stopped working on their rom and I believe they will surprise us with an RC5 by the end of this month. In all cases their RC 4.2 remains among the best available for GS. Coupled with MINCS 143, it works like a charm except for direct access to ext. SD (still accessible through SD/EMMC though).

When I heard that Samsung wasn't developing ICS for the SGS I decided to root mine and flash an ICS rom and for some reason chose the ICSSGS rom. I used that for a few days and was happy. Then I realized they were still on 4.0.3 and then decided to upgrade to CM9 as they are on 4.0.4. It's a matter of personal preference.
