    Synergy rom, CWM touch, Titanium backup pro, mobile odin pro. I also have been using Rom manager just because it very easy.

    Well if you like Synergy you can find the latest build on XDA developers site. The latest is r443 but a new build is about to drop anytime. There are lots of roms out there but suggest going with one of the more stable ones. Read up my friend...

    I say go with synergy r443. Use the link I posted. You can even watch a review on the rom. I would trust downloaded roms from sites like xda and the like. The newer build are towards the bottom of the list.

    First time I flashed, I booted into upload mode and used odin but every time after that I just used rom manager. I do recommend making a backup in CWM if thats is the recovery you decided to go with. I also recommend a wipe and flash. My first time I dirty flashed and had success but you arent gonna get any advice to do it that way.

    Could be your samsung driver. I had to use an earlier version for my pc to see my phone. You could download it straight to your phone if you're on wifi. Also, who is your carrier? Just want to make sure I steered you to the right rom. You could soft brick if you flash a rom not for your device.
