Default [Q] what are the weakness of 4.1+ roms

Hello,

I have a arc s (lt18i) currently running ICS 4.0 (ultimate HD). I am considering switching to a 4.1+ but I have questions about what I am going to lose.
I read some disadvantages of 4.1+ roms, and I want to have precisions/informations about that :
  1. HDMI is not possible with these ROMs. What is the exact cause of that ?
  2. HD video recording (720p) seems not to be possible. Is that true ? it would be a great incovenience for me
  3. Does the overall camera quality is the same as with ICS roms ?

thanks on advance for your answers.

1) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1989501
2) there's some development going on regarding 720p... You may see it soon enough...
3) overall camera quality isn't as good as ics

another thing you'll miss is sony dialer app ,, and ICS sony camera is better than cm camera but on the other hand cm10 based roms are way faster and lighter and smoother than ics as for multitasking and games << if you were going to upgrade to 4.1 I suggest that u try super jelly bean rom

Some games like NFS MW works smooth while little games like Candy Crush just lags a lot & crashes..

Agreed with both @Attitude.SSJ and @xkifah.
On JB, had been using SJB8 and Slimbean511 for quite a while, I'm afraid the sony camera (ICS) would be very much better.
I think SJB is stable and Slimbean is beautiful.
Try using the LuPuS(FULL) kernel for taking better foto / video.

most cm roms won't let u record 720p and for normal photos I don't know but photos taken with Sony camera just feels better than those taken with Google camera but there's a plenty of alternative camera apps on the market and some of them have really nice features in the end i guess that the goods surpass the bads so why don't u try it yourself as it wont do u any bad and see the difference yourself

To be specific, switching to 4.2 and above means losing radio, in 4.1 radio is working
