    I find ApeX to be a good rom, but I was wondering; is there one out there which mimics either a true "Google Experience" ala Nexus One/S or a true Vanilla Rom with only the bare essentials necessary? An "Android Experience" of sorts?

    Fission used to be the best for Vanilla but then the devs started adding Blur back in. Ruined it for me.

    So are you saying it's going to provide a pure vanilla experience?

    Very close to it. For ABSOLUTELY pure vanilla, check out Cobalt or Obsidian. They are source built, but there are things broken with them

    What about a Nexus-esque Rom, one providing a pure Google Experience?

    I wish it were that easy.

    Pure AOSP roms are the following: Obsidian, Cobalt, Ultimate Droid and soon to be Phoenix and CM

    These roms have broken features, and other issues due to the locked bootloader slowing down and breaking production. The mostly blurless roms that bring the google experience are rubiX Focused, Fission, Liberty and GummyJAR.

    I'm biased towards rubiX since I developed it.

    Rubix is the most solid aosp like rom, imo. Liberty is wicked, but some phones don't like it (mine doesn't) fission is pretty fly but pretty plain, though fairly customizable same for rubix. Go with one of those two I think.

    go with liberty. It is just about 100% aosp and will provide you with a "google" experience.

    this is a common misconception.. the APPS are nearly 100% aosp.

    I'd put total aosp-likeness way less than that. There are 3 framework parts compiled from aosp. The drivers, libs, majority of framework, etc. are not compiled from aosp.

    rubiX is just as aosp-like. Fission I believe is less, since they've started adding blur packages back.

    You would not go wrong with either Liberty, Gummy or rubiX for COMPLETE aosp-like.

    As I stated before, Obsidian, Cobalt, and Ultimate Droid are the only 3 TRUE AOSP roms, the only 3 true google experience roms.

    edit: I'm not knocking on Liberty in any way, shape, or form, by the way. Kejar and JRummy are great guys. I was with Kejar when he did most of the adjustments to pull it closer to AOSP. I'm trying to inform, not knock.

    lol i'm just curious as to what's incorrect.. all the information I posted is 100% accurate. you could ask kejar and jrummy themselves. I've worked with both of them countless times, and provided plenty of input and theories to their work as well as my own, and technically, UD, Cobalt and Obsidian are the only 3 google experience rom's. They're truly AOSP built, although the kernel isn't replaced, the whole system partition is replaced with source. No moto is found in the framework or otherwise. Check liberty, rubix, fission and gummyjar, they all have moto stuff sprinkled throughout the roms.
