I'd like to ask everyone's opinions regarding the G3 roms that are becoming available (CloudyG3, OptimusG3, etc). I'm currently using Pardus 7.4, and have tried a few of the G3 roms. But, I keep coming back to Pardus. Maybe I'm missing something? What is the fascination with the G3 roms?

The G3 roms do have some cool new features and a unique UI and they are maintained by great Devs. that will continue to improve them until they are on par with the other current KK roms. And as a ported rom, it takes time to get everything working smoothly. KK felt a little clunky coming from a JB rom that had been constantly updated and optimized but then the KK roms kept evolving too and now I'm very satisfied.

BUT, with that being said, you'll start to notice that a lot of people on XDA just want the 'newest' everything... As soon as something comes out it becomes the thing everyone wants and if they can't have it right away they ask and ask.. When "Android L" is released in any form for any device you will see a flood of posts of why LG sucks because we didn't get the update the very hour it was released.

That I don't know. I don't see it on xda - I think it's just the theme and launcher. (don't take my word for granted)
