I just copied the one from dmans pac rom and still it takes ages to lock, seems to me that dman did something to his builds that are missing here

out of all of these roms what would be the top three roms to look at once finished, CM 10.1, AOKP 4.2.1, Liquid smooth 4.2.1 or Vanilla root 4.2.1. I wanted to know what the differences are between these four roms, i could not find any info googling an so that's why i am asking about all of this. if someone can give me an idea about each that would be great.

Rootbox - Most Feature Packed
Liquid Smooth - Most Optimized and Lite
CM10.1 - Most Stable, Technically because its closest to stock Android
AOKP - Has a few more features than CM10.1

IMEI Trouble
After I had just gotten this ROM almost all set up the way I like it I ran into service troubles and the IMEI came up as unknown. I thought all the installing and uninstalling of apps (especially wi-fi hotspot stuff that was for ICS and FCing) must have hosed my EFS as I posted here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2019540&page=2

After recovering my EFS I re-flashed back to this ROM and started setting up my apps. During install and config I popped an unknown IMEI again. I tried rebooting, pulling the battery, airplane mode on/off and the IMEI was still unknown. I hit the factory data reset just on a whim, and when the phone came back up the IMEI was ok again!

I ran an EFS backup, and a CWM backup and started installing everything again. Same as before, when I had the majority of my stuff installed the IMEI came up unknown. I now figure that the EFS must not actually have been corrupted (so I went through all that backup, change and fix IMEI crap for three days just to prove it can be done on our phones!) I rebooted into CWM and deleted dalvik cache and on reboot the IMEI is back! This happened one more time while transferring things and fine tuning settings. After a reboot it came up unknown, I wiped dalvik and reset permissions and it came back to life. It happened again, and trying the wipe didn't work. Factory data reset worked, then ran a CWM restore.

I have never had problems with this phone before, and have only been running custom ROMs for a long time. I wonder if there is a bug that is causing the OS to be unable to read the IMEI even though it's not actually corrupted? Maybe this is just isolated to me?

I saw it popping up on Goo.im and just downloaded it - it works much better! After first install it crashed when I opened keyboard, but after 3rd reboot everything has been running great. Seems MUCH faster. I did have to re-flash gapps as well, didn't show any google accounts listed when I rebooted the first time.

Remember to wipe cache/dalvik

Thanks a ton!

I installed this rom, works great... after replacing my sms w/ SMS backup and Restore - however - when I opened messaging it would sit at "loading message" clearing data for sms in titanium backup seemed to fix it.

Otherwise, super slick. I only played with it for a bit before backing it up and swapping back to pacman ... I'm happy to see the camera and keyboard are fully fixed!!

One gripe - the stock browser. Really not too smooth, didn't pickup my bookmarks .... I'm used to the one in PacMAN where it has the Favorites icon to the top right of the tabs so I hit it, and it shows all my google saved (chrome) bookmarks and a preview of the pages. Really handy feature vs. having to add a button press to get to my common sites....

Am I missing something or is this a PA rom only browser ?
