I used to be a big fan of Cyanogenmod, but I decided to try something new.
I would recommend CyanAOSP when a new update comes out, the dev is currently having exams. (good for gaming)
Mackay Rom 4.4.2 is very nice also, but again, based on CM 11, which I find laggy.
SlimKat is good, try it if you like messing around with dpi
By far my favourite right now is Supernexus, even if an update hasnt come out for a while. Its smooth and quick.

If you are looking for a jb rom, there are plenty stable releases out. (eg Mackay, CyanAosp, CM, SlimBean etc etc) Even Cm 10.1.3 and 10.2.1 stable are good with mackay or semaphore kernel. Make sure to try CM 11 when M5 comes out, as well as RC versions and obviously stable versions. But it wont go stable for a while yet!

Hi everyone,
I'm using the resurrection remxi rom 5.0.9 and it's a very good stable and beautiful rom. I recommande it !
You can customize a lot your interface, and it's works without issues.

About ART, I'm using it now with RR 5.0.9.

The initial loading was awfully long & everything lags. After a few restarts, it's quite okay but not as smooth with Dalvik.

If anyone has any tips or tricks to make ART better, please share.
