What is stopping you from using CM9/AOKP as a daily?

Default What is stopping you from using CM9/AOKP as a daily?

Please share what is preventing you from using ICS roms. The Cyanogenmod developers for the Epic do not know what to fix unless you tell them. Currently I feel that CM9 is fully working for the Epic and have not run into a bug. It feels more stable than a stock ROM to me.

Please try to reproduce the issue on a clean CM9 (latest version) without a custom kernel and after wiping data before posting.

I wont use the ICS roms like AOKP or CM because there always seems to be something that doesn't work that I consider important to my personal daily use. I find it quite impressive that the roms have more customization that anyone could possibly use, but something that I need every day like VM or video recording wont work properly. And then there are the little things like volume and light levels or audio routing. I mean, there always seems to be something wrong with them, something that affects my normal minute by minute use of the phone.

further, I don't understand why the google apps aren't built-in. No, it's not that hard to download and flash the gapps, but at the moment I'm trying to do just that and the link isn't working- so no gapps for me, so no AOKP for me either. (yeah, I was going to give it a try).

lastly, white for the calendar background is about as enjoyable to look at as much as burlap makes for a choice undergarment material.

I like stock CM 9 beta 3, but I keep going back to the Nyan kernel for the voodoo color. Anyone else?

Not me. I would much prefer a kernel as awesome as Nyan without Voodoo Color. Sure, while it does make the colors juicier and the backgrounds smoother, it's not as natural to me. The screen is much darker and if you try to brighten it, it seems almost washed out. I've tried it and have tried many different settings a bunch of people recommend, and maybe it's just me but I really hope they don't include it in any ROM. Considering that CM9 is meant to be an improved "stock" experience for all, the idea of changing the color contrast is too controversial. Many will like it, many will hate it. But for now, they should just keep what they have as most people don't seem all that upset about it. If you are, than just flash Nyan Kernel.

The people('s ROM) is stopping me..

too many updates and needed fixes for me on CM9, plus the lack of 4g and/or battery life....

All other things I understand fully, so I can't sway your opinion(not that I would try) but 4G in CM9? When I last checked it's working. Do you not have it in your area?

I used CM9 about a week on my SGS. I had some minor problems, but the worst think was, that my battery drains like hell. About 14h of normal ussage and that think was dry like a stone!
Now I'm back on MIUI Mintberry, I miss some ICS features but that Rom is stable as hell!
