hello guys.. okay I will make this quick to the point...

before we begin, I'm a poweruser with hundreds of apps installed and for honest I'm using all of them.. included the Xposed Modules.
After time to time I recognized this JB based ROM ARTMOD (which is still based on Official Moto ROM) kinda not reliable anymore, boot time is insanely more than 5 minutes even I removed some useless from startup entry.

Rarely to soft reboot and I have to execute Greenify very often to free up some RAM when I wanna use my app or the RAZR getting slow.

One problem I found with my RAZR is the SystemUI process kinda eat up my RAM like crazy (the highest is about 290MB), because of this I wanna look some alternative custom ROM in priority to Kit Kat ROM. As I know Kit Kat ROM is light on RAM consumption so I can load bunch of apps I need in RAZR's 1 GB RAM.

Also since ICS, RAZR is getting short freezed after installing/updating apps from APK files or from Google Play Store, and still occured until now in my ARTMOD ROM. Anyhow what caused..?

recently for the last week I've been crazy hunting Kit Kat custom ROM for my RAZR MAXX, and my choosen one is Liquid Smooth, most of Xposed Modules I used already integrated in Liquid Smooth.

I've been tested this Liquid Smooth for about 5 days with regular basis in BMM slot 2, but I haven't test it for heavy usage with all of my apps installed. So I'm still worried if I restore all of the apps and data with Nandroid Manager the ROM won't hold. Because I've been tested with MIUI (ICS based) last year and end up with launcher crashed and endless loop, still didn't know what will happen with Liquid Smooth.

Fpr the last resort about my problem maybe I will planning to buy a new phone, because is all about hardware resource which is RAZR getting it's limit, my target is the Xperia Z2 which is just announced in MWC but in my country still about 2-3 months for it's availability.

So for the time being, I just wanna my RAZR is getting hold up before Xperia Z2 arrived. Any advice guys..? Feel free to ask anything...
Thanks before and sorry if my English is bad.

Already but I haven't tested in regular basis, in personal I prefer Liquid Smooth for now...

Any hot features for daliy basis..? I haven't look around inside and only tested it 1 time less than 10 minutes.
And Mokee ROM slot in BMM already erased cause there's something I dislike inside it (and horribly I totally forget it)

Try a combo of Slimkat + JBX kernel. The rom itself goes pretty light on memory and cpu load and the custom kernel has some pretty neat features if you need some extra power (eg. overclocking, tuning memory management etc.).

Any hot features for daily basis...? I kinda interest for bunch of built-in features in Liquid Smooth taken from Xposed Modules.

For flashing custom kernel, I kinda very new here and honestly never done it. Is it easy as flashing zip file..?

before I try SlimKat, is there any major bugs for daily basis..?

Well there's quite a lot of bundled tweaks and options which you can fiddle with. But first of all - it's really stable and smooth.Oh, and flashing a custom kexec kernel (and all kit kat roms use it) is as easy as flashing a rom or gapps - just a zip file in BMM.

Already tried Slimkat but the built-in features is not much as Liquid Smooth.. And I didn't know if if I'm wrong... Liquid Smooth is better than SlimKat in responsive regular UI navigation... Haven't tested it for long enought, maybe I try again later...

A decent build is more than enought for daily basis, as I know every build published we need re-flash the ROM or if lucky there's ROM updater built-in trought OTA..

Well if you prefer LiquidSmooth, you can try JBX kernel with it.
