So admittingly I haven't tried every ROM out there, and that two people can have the exact same set up and get totally different results, so I guess this question is somewhat rhetorical, but I have to ask.
Right now I have in my box of restore points, 8 different ROMs/ROM versions; SS 4.6, BB v.4, cyanogen, insanemisis (oh, you know!), BB 1.1, SS 4.7, Lithium, and JRummy. All of them have great points and things within that I adore. I give huge kudos to the devs for these ROMs and I can only dream of taking the bits and pieces that I like from each and creating the ultimate JimROM.
However reality sets in and I do find myself looking for a certain area of functionality that lately has been the bane of my phone existence, as I can't seem to impress anyone with my phone because of this problem.
So.... is there any ROM that has the Chevy notbar customizations, BB icons and subtle theming, JR's theming and Lithium's quickness without.....
without having the phone fall on it's face when coming off a certain app or setting page or something??? You know, let's say you're on a call and you hang up and need to get to say your Handcent app, but you hang up and hit the home button and it takes what seems like 30 minutes before your icons load up and another 3 minutes before you can scroll home screens. This is becoming incredibly annoying.
I've been through my stage of looking for the best Quadrant scores and find that clocked at 1.2ghz means nothing if you're waiting for your phone to get it's head out of it's arse to continue.
Man I've tried 800 - 1.2 kernels, ULV/SV/MV kernels, different ROMs, different launchers, read up on launcher settings, and more.... to the point of frustration. If you do the math, do you know the number of different combinations that are available between kernels, ROMs, and launchers????
I know this phone is capable of being snappy and I'll tell you, when I pull it out and my buddy pulls his iPhone 3G (slowed down with OS4) and he has the pic taken and reviewed before my camera is even ready to shoot.... FAIL.
