Monday Poll: Current Custom ROM is?

Since we made the decision at the end of last week to kick start Custom ROM/Theme Friday again, we need to make sure we have a good feel for the ROMs and themes that you guys are into these days. With more ROMs for the Galaxy Nexus than any normal person can keep up with, we would love to hear about your favorite, along with custom kernels, mods and themes. We also can’t forget about the Rezound (aka the current darling of the Android world), RAZR, Bionic, and all of the other recently released and popular devices. It’ll be a tough task trying to keep up with them all, but we are ready to give it a shot.

So in the comments, let us know phone, ROM, kernel, mods, theme and anything else that has been done.

    What rom is on the screenshot?

    • AOKP. It’s on rootzwiki. Pretty amazing ROM.

    Galaxy Nexus- AOKP Toro 21 with franco kernel. Great performance, still terrible battery life with a very high Android OS percentage.

    • Have you tried imoseyon’s leankernel? Lots of people are getting great battery life with franco, but I was not one of them. Getting much better with lean.

      • PC_Tool

        AOKP 21 with leankernel here.  Switched fro GladOS yesterday due to much spontaneous rebooting over the weekend.  Now roman has Milestone 3 out.  *sigh*

        …back to recovery.  :p

    Running Android Revolution HD 2.1.2 by mike1986. No Kernel, no theme.

    I installed it a long time ago for soft key mod (can’t live without my search). I’m also running 281 DPI.

    Really need to take the time to look into a 4.0.3 ROM where I can write NFC tags. Also want to get semi-transparent notification bar and soft key dock. I may look into the dark themed stock apps. This phone is really so good, I don’t feel the need to go look for ROMs as much.

  • droid 3: stock kernel, liberty3 rom, status bar modified with rom toolbox app. waiting for gingerbread, but i really dont like the search bar static on every screen. would really hope devs get rid of the search bar, it just kills screen realty.

    Bugless beast with franco was awesome but I wanted more customization so I switched to AOKP with Franco. Btw, this post and the awesome comments makes droid-life feel like it used to with everyone helping each other. Good to see. I’m happy bro.

    AOKP on Galaxy Nexus. Still getting a feel for the mods and customization.

  • I’m using Peter Alfonso’s latest build of Bugless Beast (some very minor tweaks made to the stock Android 4.0.3 AOSP build), it’s on Android 4.0.3, with Faux123’s latest kernel. I’m running this setup on my (obviously) unlocked Verizon LTE Galaxy Nexus.
