    Is AOKP the best ROM?

    I'm running AOKP with the Franco kernel. Is this the best ROM out? I guess I'm itching to try to flash a new ROM. Still new at rooting. Im ok with the battery life, but the signal strength could be alot better. Still my favorite phone! !

    You're going to get various answers but the 2 top roms for the Nexus seem to be AOKP & LiquidSmooth. I'm running Liquid & won't look at any other roms. I tried AOKP but my phone didn't like it. I am also running the latest Franco nightly

    I know this isn't what you want to hear, but best is subjective. Is it the most popular? Perhaps. But there is no way to quantify that AOKP is better than another ROM without bringing opinions into it. Gummy, Sourcery, Liquid, CM9, Apex, Axiom, Kangorade, Tranquility, RootzBoat, MIUI, or even something like the tablet ROM (sorry the name escapes me at the moment). Most ROMs will have their fans, just because one is more popular than the other doesn't mean it is the best.

    As long as you have time, and don't mind, trying as many ROMs that interest you is a good idea. Nothing wrong with getting tied to a ROM you like, but there is a possibility of something else out there you enjoy more. All it takes is some experimenting to find out if it exists.

    There's ROMs here, Rootzwiki, XDA. Just make sure you navigate to the CDMA [VZW] Galaxy Nexus sections and you'll have plenty of ROMs to choose from.
    Don't be scared, adb is your friend.

    I flashed the latest AOKP build. The battery life is incredible!!. I am afraid to try other roms now. I will try them though. I guess I can just flash my backup if I don't like it.

    It depends on your phone, my phone hates AOKP, it will do fine with other roms based on AOKP but my phone tends to perfer Liquid and Gummy. Basically there is no "best" rom like many have said, it's all preference and what works best for you.

    I've only tried AOKP, but since my phone works so perfectly, I have no desire to try any other ROM. Sure, I would love to see what other ROMs have to offer, but I feel that it is unnecessary because AOKP is just rock solid for me. Not to mention, I don't really have tons of time to do all the backups and set ups just to try out new ROMs (it does take me quite a bit of time, and I'm no novice to flashing ROMs).

    Speaking of which, I notice they come out with some sort of update (new build) almost every week. It is necessary to flash every new update? If so, do I really need to do a full wipe (say, if I'm coming from build 35 to 36, for instance)?

    EDIT: Also, why no AOKP section in this forum? Just curious...
