Default Android versions

I'm still on 4.2 and totally happy with it. Using Wicked v8. Of course I'd like to have a change of scenery but I'm not sure if I should.

What are the issues with either version (not specific to a ROM, just that version). What doesn't work or is there anything special that needs to be done to bypass the issues? I'm sure a lot of this can be researched and I usually would but some of it is buried on page 30 of a random thread.

Not necessarily... I mean, the last few pages would be the ones pertaining to the more recent builds of whatever ROM you're looking into. Take Wicked; I doubt there's much on page 2 (V1) that would be relevant bug-wise to V8 or even V9. Same goes for the other ROMs out there.
Don't be afraid of the "Thanks" button

Just go for it. You are going to have to update sometime. Just don't install the 4.3 bootloader and you've got nothing to worry about.

I'm on 4.4.2, but if I wanted to I could Odin the stock image and be back on 4.2.

Try Carbon kitkat (4.4) it's been really good so far no problems so far

Thanks everyone. I'll definitely try the ones mentioned and see how I like them. It's so hard to update sometimes, deciding what ROM to go with. 1st world problem all the way lol
