Default Which android version is the best for I9000?

KitKat and JB can sometimes get really slow.
ICS and JB 4.1 often feel great, but then for some weird reason apps get really sluggish.
I'm not even trying gingerbread - it's fast and you have lots of RAM, but it's older than my grandma and there is also no recent apps window.

I'm using social apps like G+, Twitter, Tumblr, Klyph for Facebook; Nova Launcher with custom icons, YouTube etc + very important - Hangouts, FB messenger, Viber. Also some games (Flappy Bird , jetpack joyride etc).

Sooo what would you guys recommend for me? I'm asking for the best android version, maybe specific ROM, also specific kernel AND what kernel settings you use and stuff like that.

Aand I was also wondering if it's a good idea to try MIUI - is it fast and smooth? By my experience - not really.

Thanks for everything )

Did not help. I'm looking for experience with specific VERSIONS of android, not ROMs. Your thread just gives me info that I already know.

Probably not the rom section/first post itself that would be useful - the second post may be of some more use (unless you've already gone through that as well, in which case I'm not sure I can help any further)

Try Cyan 4.4 as it is small and fast.
Most of your Apps need it, the i9000 will run to the limits because of the active background processes at all times.

I believe you should look again at Soryuu's amazing thread, especially under section 6a:

If you ask me, I would have go first with CyanAOSP since it's the newest between those who are offered by Soryuu in that section.
In addition, I do believe it'll be the best to go with KitKat since it's under continuing development these days.

Another option is to go with xsenman's thread which lists a lot (if not all) of the Kit Kat ROMs in this forums, and give some links to more detailed information.

Good luck!
