If you would all be so kind as to follow this format:.
(I'm making it it's own post as well so you can easily reply to that one and then edit it to make it your own) :

Original Variant/Carrier:

Current Variant/Carrier:

Custom or modified kernel:

Additional Features:

Missing / Broken Features:

************************************************** *******

I'm most likely undereducated here but I have never seen reason to try/use a custom ROM. The great folks here on XDA are always quick to publish the latest tweaks and updates, so I feel like my device is as good as it's going to get. But, I'm hoping I'm wrong.

So that is why I am starting this discussion. Maybe your feedback and opinions will get me and any other user lacking ROM knowledge to convert.

Or maybe we will discover some fun difference in Variants and find a way to Port it over to all devices. No matter what, I think it would be useful to see what everyone is running on their device on a typical day. It may even help other development just to see what the average user is using.

So far we only have one person using a custom ROM. I'm surprised, I thought everyone used one them except me.

Any users or non users have opinions on why or why you don't use ROMs?

Anyone using custom Kernels?

Like ROMs, Kernels are another popular mod I personally don't use, but people seem pretty into modifying them/upgrading them, so I'm going to add that field to the original posts now as its prob worth a discussion too...

Custom ROMs currently do not have LG's DTS 3D Stereo -- but mostly because with my current job, I can't risk stuff like this:

Just a random comment pulled off bottom of a ROM thread before replying to this question. On my previous phone (Moto Quark) I ran stable custom ROMs all the time -- especially Resurrection Remix. For 3 years never ran stock, once we got custom ROMs.

I even kept a thread going with all the Moto Quark (Droid Turbo/Moto Turbo/Moto Maxx) custom ROMs available-- because we were spread over two different XDA forums. (Sort of like how the LG V30S has its own XDA forum for no reason?) But both Quark forums were active, but all CM/Lineage ROMs were compatible with all variants). Over there, I was the ROM expert. . I flashed ROMs all the time on my and my wife's phones.

But on this V30+, I'm running rooted stock firmware with Magisk mods, Xposed modules and build prop edits.

Also, I like the Quad DAC and I LOVE the new DTS 3D Stereo, which custom ROMs don't have yet (DTS is what I'm talking about)... to my knowledge.

That's no disrespect to any of the custom devs in this forum. It's just personally, I just can't risk my phone not working with my current job -- and rooted stock firmware with mods gives me what I need. You asked, so I answered.
