Honestly, there is no JB ROM without any lag. Captivate is just too old and slow device to run well newer Android versions. Forget about Liquid Smooth, For Gaming, Fastest, etc. statements, no such thing. Play a little with any new dual or quad core device with more available and much faster RAM and you'll see what I'm talking about. Captivate is good with a basic ROM and no more than 20-30 light apps.
Funny you mention Slimbean BWolf56, basically what I've been partial to.. My particular problem
is being new to all this is, determining just how light/slim a particular ROM is!
I notice quite a differemce in ROM sizes when downloaded but is that any indication?
And Val D, I understand what you're saying, a phone being just a computer so... I'll soon find out what
the captivate can handle!
PS.. I've been keeping a record of what I've done, as well as a database of all the files and programs I've used!
Haha, I hate looking for something twice!
I'll give a holler when I've checked out another!
