Hi there,

over the time I lost track of custom ROMs for the p920 and just landed back on xda these days, because I finally decided to try a custom ROM on my p920. Also because the autofocus on p920 isnt that good with 4.0.4 and bluetooth has its problems with OBDII vehicle diagnostic adapters.

1st problem I might face, could be using Windows 8.1 Pro x64, right ? (Dont I need Win 7 to be on the safe side while flashing?)

Right now I use the Stock LG ICS ROM 4.0, (v30a) which I flashed right after its release. Since then I never flashed a smartphone again, but I still understand about Clockwork and most flashing tutorials. Still I sadly dont have time to flash through all the ROMs. Thats why I came here.

Dont get me wrong, stock Android 4.0.4 runs well (except for the bluetooth problem for example), but I was hoping for minimal speed improvements and less lag on the homesscreen sometimes, or less lag in games (now and then). I dont care for HDMI or 3D anymore and I know it is not working on custom ROMs on the p920.

I read about ACiD Audio Engine, I read about FM Radio Mods to reanable the FM Radio option, I read about PACMAN ROM by Bernie, I read about RootBox ROM.
I remember that some ROMs did not really offer better performance or less lag or large speed improvements back then.
I read about CPU overclocking on the p920. I read so much, that Im no longer sure where to start.
Time has passed, Im not sure what changed. I only recently tried the CyanogenMod Installer, which only told me that my device is not compatible. :/ (I know there are nightlies of CM10 though)

Could someone (with a modded p920) please re-direct me to a ROM of his choice, that he is proud of having it installed ?

I dont need CPU overclocking, or any nerdie-special features Im just looking for a mod that can phone, do bluetooth correctly, plays mp3s and can take photos. (and playing games now and then) Still, Id hope to go somewhere into the direction of Android 4.2.2 and I 1st stumbled across CM10 niglthy, PACMAN and RootBox.
I read here that members like JunDavis even try to flash CM11 to our p920. I also try to understand that my phone is "old" and not much can be done about it anyway.
If there should be another ROM you would recommend, or if someone wants to tell me that it is not really worth it (anymore), or if I have missed any other opportunity, except for buying a new phone, feel free to fire away.

And keep in mind Im on Windows 8.1 Pro x64 :S

Thanks for reading and I hope for a reply
