    Hey, guys... gonna be upgrading to a D4 tomorrow, anyone got any suggestions and opinions on a good rom? Something lightweight and with a fair amount of customization?
    Thanks in advance!

    Ugh, I meant to write JB, but I'm so used to typing ICS for my D3 that I wrote it, lmao...
    I'm looking for a stable Jellybean ROM!
    Thanks again, lol

    Yes, Eclipse rom is the most stable, and DroidDoesTh3ory will be posting a bunch of roms but they still may have data problems.

    Eclipse 1.2.3 or whatever I'm running right now is amazingly fast and with better battery life than the moto roms. It is fully functional, and with lots of patches to customize in various ways (overclocking, restoring stock camera, Google Now, etc). The main reason I wanted jb over ics was Now, so I'm quite happy

    I tried Eclipse 1.2.1 and I don't mean to sound arrogant, but I knew it couldn't be as smooth or fast as everyone says VS CM and AOKP. I often use Skype and it lagged A Lot on stock. Well, that's what Eclipse is based off of. I read how fast and smooth it was. But when it came to loading the large lists of text from Skype, it froze, lagged and even caused my phone to reboot lol. I knew it was gonna happen, but I wanted the battery life... The speed and smoothness of CM and AOKP is better than the battery life imo.

    He wants something stable and Eclipse is the most stable of them all and is faster with better battery life than stock.

    Stock ICS is completely fine....though I do suggest rooting and freezing a lot of the blur to increase battery life and make the phone run smoother.

    Well, I've been using these CM9 and AOKP ever since the 3G to 4G was fixed, I haven't had any problems. I did do a wipe when going to Eclipse, and didn't restore data with Skype either. I've never had instability. My phone does randomly reboot when it's just sitting on my desk doing nothing, but that's less than once a day lol.
    Nice. Though those benchmarks don't prove much :p. One reason is, mine is showing 1700 on AOKP from July 25th lol. I can't comment on Eclipse 1.2.3 though without trying it.

    Are you trying to say I didn't read directions? Lol... You even said, 1.2.1 was slow. And wiping data and cache isn't even needed in directions, it's common sense. So yes, I did all of that AND I didn't restore apps with data, as I already said. Sorry, but it's you that can't read, I already said I wiped everything.

    Even though we all have the same phone, they all play a little different. Your phone performs well on AOKP and CM based roms while mine does the opposite. And some phones play well being OC'd to 1400 or past while others don't.

    We now have a toy store to pick and choose which rom to call our favorite and not everyone will agree, just be glad we have a lot of choices now.

    Wait. I just installed this rom NOT on the SD card, i used the internal storage. Is that going to mess something up? I don't have data right now, I assumed it was still indexing...
