Question [Q] Help a noob choose a ROM

Hello, I have a GT-S5660 and last week I loaded this ROM -

Jellybean 4.2.2 (CyanogenMod 10.1) 20130908 from maclaw.

But I am running out of space on the internal storage, I have tried the App2SD app but there are some apps that cannot be moved and after loading up 3-4 apps I am running out of space already.

Can someone point me to a ROM that allows me to install ALL my apps to the SD card? I dont mind going backwards in Android versions - I just want to run apps off the sd card. I mainly use the phone as a phone but am a heavy user of whatsapp - footmob - dropbox - music and ebooks.

I have a 2gig SDCard installed in the phone and I made a partion on it using CWM. I hope everything is setup to be able to a new ROM and allow apps install to the SD.

I dont need - FM radio - email (I use gmail) - exchange - only English language - voice search - voice dialler or talk.

Can anyone help me make a good choice for a new ROM ?
Thanks a lot in advance!

You should install JellyBread.
It's the best rom for Gio, it's fast and stable.
And it already has a script in it to move apps to sd-ext.
So create a ext-2, ext-3 or ext-4 partition on your sd-card.
Then go to terminal emulator (pre-installed) and type
su
Then it will ask for root, accept, then
int2ext
reboot

Then check in Settings>Apps>Mangage applications and if you see your storage is huuuuge then it worked.
Device: Samsung Galaxy Gio GT-S5660
ROM: JellyBread v5.0 by saldymhmd and Alfisyahrien
Previous Phone: Samsung Star Text B3410 (NON-DROID )

I use CM10.1 by Mardon for 3-4 months and is very stable and good looking too.I had the storage free space problem too but I used Link2SD to uninstall and move apps to SD and now I have 100mb free.I also replace original LatinIME (11mb) with another that has only 3mb

Had to load the ROm twice for some reason, it got stuck on the loading screen for about 20 mins so I did a factory reset and wipe again then it worked fine.
Just perfect!! exactly what I was looking for!
Having great fun loading up LOTS of apps now
Thanks a lot for helping
