Hi all, this is my first thread so please excuse any noobishness.. I've got a tf300t and it is quite slow. I've done a factory data reset and that fixed some of the ills and I've disabled a good amount of stuff but it's still not as fast as my One X. My main question is this- will a custom Rom make it quicker? I have Been thinking about CM10 but if it's not going to be faster, then there is no point.

Thanks!

The answer is : Yes it will remakably be
You have the choice between many roms and kernels. And some combinations give incredible results.

What are some top ones that have stable releases? CM 10.2 is the only one I can think of

I suggest you start with CROMI-X v5.4
It's stock based, stable with many performance tweaks.
And if you want to jump directly to kitkat, follow links in my signature.

There are several in this forum. I recommend you read what you find and judge for yourself which is more clear.
The more you learn, the more you avoid unpleasant surprises

Lol that's true. I have found some guides for both and one for CM is really simple IMO. What's the difference between CROMI-X 5.4 and CM 10.2?

I have unlocked the bootloader downloaded from the austek webpage, and my tablet is working fine right now but if I fastboot and then select recovery mode i get taken to the screen your describing- the open droid with the red exclamation mark triangle with the error message? cannot by pass this to flash with TWRP 2.7.1.0? any idea why?

The screen with 3 icons is fastboot mode, you don't have to choose any icon before flashing TWRP

We can say that CROMI-X is your actual stock ROM on steroids. There are many additions like performance tweaks, optimized kernels, useful apps and even ads blocking. Also the installer gives you the choice to install only what you need.

Are the custom roms specifically tweaked for each device?
