So all these recent builds have no new features, just built by different tool chains? What is the benefit, speed/performance/less lag?

I would use Linaro builds made by me for the best speed/performacne/less lag. You can see what commits are made by AICP here. Those are synced daily for the Nightly builds on the aicp download site (No Linaro). Linaro builds are compiled by myself when I have time and/or There is a commit that I think will make a difference on a build for the otterx.

To break it down

Builds here are made by AICP with the standard toolchain but are made nightly.

Builds here are made by me with the Linaro toolchain, these are faster than the ones made by AICP but are not made as frequently.

If this upload fails try making it a tar.bz2. That commpesses it alot. The zip being small sounds normal, the tar.bz2 of the linaro 4.7 toolchain I used was about 130mb if I remeber correctly and was over 500 mb extracted.

all my builds have a number. ie 6.9 this is the official slimroms build number (see there change log) recently i have also been doing builds with different toolchains. the ones with 777kernel also have my kernel which is based off hashcodes source with an added cpu governor (smartassV2) although all this is just trial and error. as nobody knows what truly is best. the new 6.9 build seems pretty good so far
