    Thank you for the suggestion.

    I think my main problem in not being able to pick is sometimes not being able to see a screenshot of the rom before I download or install.

    All the roms have their pros and cons. I would suggest you make sure you have a nandroid backup and that you back up your apps. I will not promote a rom for I am using stock o/c with chevy kernels, but I will tell you that you take the time to read how to install these roms. Do not install a rom with less then 60% battery life. Get a battery widget, because your battery in the notification bar does not go yellow until 30%. A large percent of bootloops are from flashing a rom with 30% battery life ornot wiping data or cache.
    You use a lot of battery to process a new rom. So please ensure you are charged up. Make sure you have all you tools and be prepared to flash a backup if needed.
    Have fun because their are a lot of nice roms out there, make sure you read and follow what the devs tell you for each rom.

    I was frustrated with the lack of screenshots when I picked my rom also, but it's because most of the time the look of the phone is not changed with a different rom. The look is the job of a theme, which is installed separately from the rom. By the way, I am running bugless 1.1 with a 1100 MHz oc and I am very satisfied.

    I picked steam after not being able to get simply stunning off the rom manager. I know I can do it myself but I don't want to mess up my phone.
