Not using an AOSP variant at this point on this phone, so can'y comment re: function/bugs/whatever. (Frankly, don't hate TW at all (esp if you use an aftermarket launcher), and this phone isnt needing anything trimmed down for bloat for better function. Yet.)
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
