Arrow [Q] What's your ROM of choice?

I just got my Note 3 and I'm wondering what ROMs I should give a spin.

I tend to like MIUI roms as I had on my note 1, but also paranoid android is really fast and unbloated, I was also wondering what ROMs conserve multiwindow and s-pen features, maybe only samsung based ROMs have those. So yeah, what ROMs do you guys deem worthy?

Try them and see for your self.

I'm on Alliance 4.3, great battery, super smooth, I'm not going to update KitKat anytime soon.

Some are on 4.4 KitKat, they can maybe say a few words.

Why is ROM development so stumped? I thought I'd have TONS of ROMs to choose from like on my Note 1

Most important is that the roms and kernels that are out there are all very good You have sammy based roms, AOKP/AOSP and CM11, what more do you want? Plus you have Xposed framework to modify what you want.

I'm with CEPi - I run Alliance, Lean kernel and Philz Touch recovery. As stated it is a 4.3 based ROM so you'd need to see what your phone is as stock. If you're on 4.3, keep in mind if you go KK (4.4) you will be unable to come back. Also if your 4.3 is vMJ7 or above, you WILL blow the Knox counter by rooting, Custom ROM'ing or custom recovery.

If you're on KK already then you are restricted to the KK ROM's - like CEPi I can't comment on them as I see no reason to install a new ROM when Alliance is fast, stable & great battery.
Never doubt there is Truth, just doubt that you have it!

The entire Dev section consists of roms of someone's choice. Ofcourse, some people prefer a certain rom, some don't. At the end, it is entirely up to you to decide what you like, and this can only be achieved by trying them yourself.

If you need a starting point, most rom's can be classified into two categories, aosp-based and touchwiz-based. You can try one or two on either side to see which category your preference falls in, and then try out some other options in that category.

On that note, thread closed as we do not allow such type of threads here, since they often snowball into heated arguments over personal preference.

Thread Closed.
