Been running ROMs since 2009, I have ran virtually everything available for all my devices. Even staying close to stock there's always one thing that doesn't work right. Sure themes are great and cm messaging rocks, but at the end of the day I have decided its not worth all the time spent screwing with it to me.
Up until yesterday.. I would have agreed hands down.. Then I found "Jedi 9" with the Saber Kernel for my SGN2.. I must say, not only is it flawless under very heavy testing and demanding daily use... but its better in every way than stock. Battery is better, even with 1.8ghz OC.. performance in the best with any ROM i have tested on the phone... I found the golden unicorn of ROMs in Jedi9 ... Dont get discouraged.. I am learning more and modding my own ROMs now too
