My wife's old phone (now handed down to my daughter 5 days ago) and my own are running CM7.2. Very stable, good battery life, I know wifi hotspot with security works 100%, and everything works too,

I've also recently tried tiny's cm10.1, and it was great, full featured and almost everything worked, but it had kinda bad battery life and I did run into enough small bugs (like having to run a script for trackball wake, and other minor annoyances) to cause me to flash back to 7.2.

I haven't tried a sense rom since 3.0 so I cannot help you there.

Everyone enjoys different things, for example my wife doesn't care what she is running as long as it doesn't lag or crash, and she can install and run all of her golauncher/locker/sms/contacts apps.

Default CM10.1

I'm on CM10.1 and it's pretty good, although the battery life isn't great as it was on a GB rom.

I play bad piggies, and a few other games, all the time.

Tiny's CM10.1 had amazing battery life while the screen was off, seriously - amazing...

but it would lose about 1% per minute with the screen on and doing a lot bit of touching, such as with a game like bad piggies, or texting. It may have been just me, something with the luxe on the install i was running, or something even more mysterious. Not a bad battery, though, because the drain went away when I went back to CM7.2

Just handed down my OG to my 6 year old son a few days ago. We jumped up to GS4.

DONATE TO ME
I'm retiring my HTC Inc to be used as a GPS / Flight computer. I'm looking for a ROM that is staggeringly basic, and minimal to achieve the best battery life and simplicity. Any suggestions for a "no-frills" basic ROM?
