I can see why it takes so long for these things to get updated. Since lithmods release there has only been one update on the stock rom and it wasn't a huge one. So now there can hardly be that much to make it better. Personally I've tried a couple other roms since, but I keep check on this b/c it was probably the most completely themed ROM out. You had more than a dozen choices for themes and all of them worked great. You didnt need to go and ask themers to port. Most of it was already there. It's still a great ROM with very few problems. It runs as fast as most any other and with the right kernel combo it may run as cool as any other. That usually has more to do with the phone and personal use and experience. There's no one size fits all. If that was the case we'd all still be running stock.
