[Q] Low bloat roms with decent performance tweaks?

First new thread I've posted in a long time. Hope I'm doing this right.


I just got a galaxy S3 the other day. I have rooted and installed cyanogen
and Mrom.

Neither of these contain the settings that I am used to.

On my last phone (htc evo 4g) I had a rom that included advanced settings,
which allowed for a number of performance tweaks including multiple
processor governor choices, JIT compiler options and the like.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is there a rom for the S3 that is considered "the best" in terms of low bloat,
speed, and advanced performance settings?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From the description I thought Mrom would be a good choice,
and I have to admit that It's fast, but I miss my processor settings.

There are apps on Play such as tweakmod that allow changing processor settings. The kernel that came with any ROM you flash will only allow specific governors that the developer has tested over and over. Flashing a custom kernel such as BMS, will give you more governors to pick from. CM stock kernel has been good enough for me. I get too many weirdly spaced out random reboots after messing with custom kernels & governors these days, so I just use CM stock, interactive governor. MOAR ROM is not CM based. JIT and ART runtime settings are for KitKat ROMS. ART is still in developmental stages, and can cause issues, as not all apps are compatible.

Thanks for the quick reply. I realized last night that I hadn't enabled developer mode on CM
so I found some of the features I was looking for.

I'm going to go back to Mrom http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2172264
for now because from the descriptions of the LINARO toolchain it seems like it's one of the fastest.


Any other Roms that are considered the "fastest" that I should try. I was thinking maybe liquid smooth.
