A note on the state of development for the Incredible 2/S
Slinkwyde posted on 28th February 2014, 01:27 PM:

The 4.2.2 ROMs are the last ROMs for our phone that are both stable and fully functional (including camera in CM 10.1). Don't use Beanstalk 4.3; it has severe graphical issues that randomly make apps completely unusable. 4.4 ROMs benefit from the lower RAM requirements of KitKat, but on the Incredible 2 they suffer from missing functionality such as no camera. Using Greenify, Android Tweaker 2, and a lightweight launcher such as Nova Launcher (rather than Trebuchet, AOSP's default launcher), you can reduce the RAM usage and improve the battery life and performance of 4.2.2, without having to lose functionality like you would in 4.4. Then if you want you can apply a 4.4 KitKat theme. A good kernel to use is B-team AOSP 4.3v2 (MD5: a10098530a2153eaaec301049201ee37 thread), so that in developer options you can set the CPU governor to smartassv2 and perhaps do a little overclocking too if you want. I also recommend the AGPS patch if you use your phone for navigation or other location services. When your phone gets laggy, use the Fast Reboot app to free up RAM without needing to actually reboot (which drains considerable battery).

If your Incredible 2 is just a secondary phone for you to mess around with, CM 11 (kitkat) may be a good choice. You'll appreciate the lower RAM usage and won't mind the missing features. If it's your main phone, on the other hand, use a 4.2.2 ROM for now
