Default I'm confused

My Dear community,

I've been around the xda forums since wm5 and progressed to android with 7 different android phones between back then and now.

I have my s4 now for quite some time and started of with the omega Rom which gave me some sort of safety because I was just flashing update after update. I was never satisfied with its performance and I figured it's because everyone is flashing custom kernels and optimizing their phones. I just don't know much about kernels unfortunately so always sticked to settings and kernels that came with the roms.

Then came along the 4.4 roms. I started off with jamals ge Rom and was happy with the increase in performance. Now he discontinued development and I just don't know what Rom I can take to have good performance and battery life.

Also what kernel can I take and most of all how do I optimize it to get speed and decent battery life.

What Rom kernel and settings configurations do you use? Is there a fool proof manual to follow to get optimal performance?

Please help me out here to get out of limbo. I'm romless and clueless

Thanks my friends!

Thomas

Hi there, old member!
Unfortunately, the only person who can help you get out of your limbo is you yourself, as what people may suggest what they think is "best"/"opimal"/"great" may not bear the same results for you. The way out, as said above, is to try out the various different combinations and settle on what you feel works for you

That being said, thread closed [as "best" rom type threads are not allowed on XDA]
