Even with 4.1 and 4.2 (including 4.1 stock), they still seem to suffer from "vbus_present" issues forcing me to reboot any time I unplug the device.
The device froze up on me and corrupted too many photos. I tried asking the community what the "best" ROM was, and mods closed the thread.
I wanted the T989 as a tool. Not something I had to babysit.
Maybe I'll get a Moto G or whatever Motorola's new phone is.
The way I see it....ROMs made of 4.2.2 and higher may have their odd glitches... But that just life bringing android versions to phones who's official support ended. Its either accept the odd problem, or stick with last official update. In this case touch wiz 4.1.2. Which is pretty much perfect.
Flashing custom ROMs comes with the odd glitch, no matter the phone. That's just how it is.
Stock is for those that can't accept the odd issue.
Good luck with your next phone!! The moto g is nice, for its price for sure!!!

A point I should have made.....the devs work hard and for free and for fun....and share with us lucky members.
They do their best with what they have to work with....especially on android versions not even created for our device.
They deserve our respect and thanks. If what's available disappoints anyone....they should keep it to themselves or choose their words wisely.
Without the devs.... We'd have nothing at all. Especially when Google stops giving us official updates.
