Whats best ROM out there? I know the ICS roms are buggy so lets try to exclude those unless you really do recommend it as a daily driver....lets here ur guys opinion? I havent installed a custom ROM on my phone yet so i'm trying to see what should be my 1st one. Thanks

I take some offense that you call the ics roms buggy. They are excellent daily driver candidates. If you need wifi calling the. Dark side evolution 2 beta 3 is excellent as it is a tmo base. The only known big bug is that there is a voice delay on wifi calling if you are far from your router. The att based ics roms are a bit less "buggy" from what I hear but won't cut it if you absolutely need wifi calling. I recommend trying them all and seeing what you like. Its a matter of preference, not stability.

I've used both ics darkside and gb I went back to gb for better battery and stability. There are still bugs that need to be fixed in ics. If you need more customization and faster speeds you can go with the ever so popular juggernaut. Or you can mix juggernauts rom and save battery with the darkside kernal witch people seem to be doing the most.

Haha sorry dont mean to offend. I appreciate all the work the devs put in to these roms and I guess I have no room to call them buggy. They do the best the can with the resources they have.....but I guess until the official ics ROM comes out I can't expect perfection nor do i ever. But just wondering what roms people are running on their GS2

Before you ask whats the ROM you should see if everyone could actually agree on the ranking of importance of features on ROMS.

I personally enjoyed Juggs 5 with either the hercules kernel or synergy. Great stability, customization and battery life.

Darkside 2.7 is best rom for our phone on GB.
I have tried darkside ICS too but lots of bugs there so went back to GB.
Tried AOKP too but not good as daily driver.
Jag 5.0 is good too but i choose Darkside for best battery life.

I have flashed pretty much EVERY rom that has been put out by our great developers. I will say that the ICS roms seem to be less stable, and more problem prone because they are usually ports or have issues with hardware... As far as recommending a rom, I would recommend Juggernaut 5.0 (2.3.6) gingerbread. It is extremely fast, I get great battery life, and I do not have any problems. Along with Juggernaut, I flashed the Blaze radio, and crypted's GPS fix script, therefore I have 5 second or so GPS lock and my 4G is getting DL speeds of 15mb/s or so with uploads of 2mb/s.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1322642 - Juggernaut

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1476962 - Crypteds AGPS lock ADB script.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1572198 - Blaze Modem

BUT; in reality, its user preference.

Happy Flashing!
