I've flashed my flo 20+ times. I was using various Cm builds but I got tired of the instability after a week or more of use. I tried PA but it's just not stable on my device yet. Slimrom worked well for me but it was lacking some convenience features and it wasn't very fast. I recently flashed Omnirom to try out the multi window feature. The rom was glitchy but multi window did work. I flashed something else once I found out that you can't keep a video playing on half the screen while you use another app on the other side.
For kernels I started with elemental and then switched to faux when it came out. I've dabbled with Franco and glitch but Faux gives me the best battery life by far. I got busy with work and didn't touch my tablet for awhile. I ended up with over 20 days of standby with faux.
I know you said you wanted a change but I've finally settled on Carbon. It's the fastest and most stable rom that I've found this far. PIE, Halo, and floating window all work great. The benchmarks and daily performance are right up there with the CM roms. I've just been using the kernel that comes with Carbon and I'm getting good battery life. Faux is currently ironing out some kinks but I'll switch back to it soon for the battery life and screen calibration options.
