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.

  • Running Gummy .7.0.  Love kejar31’s work!  I’ve thrown the release 3.6 theme on it.

  • mikeym0p

    Redemption Rom 1.0.5 w/ Glados 1.4Dinc:
    Cm7 latest nightly w/ incredikernel

  • GNex – AOKP MS3 + IMO’s LeanKernel

  • Justinlightner

    What else would I use 🙂

    Galaxy Nexus-AOKP Toro 21 with blue back, home a search (hold home for tasks).  Works pretty well.

  • Mack

    Droid X2 running CM7 (2.3.7). Kernel is from motorola’s 2.3.4 build due to the locked bootloader. Depending on my mood it’s either the stock “system” theme, matted blues, or minimal bread. 

    Thanks [email protected]:twitter CM9 is on the way though. 

  • Daniel Rowen

    CM7 for Droid2Global, totally loving every new build that comes out

  • Teng247

    GNex CM9 Kang w/ kernal that came with it, softkey mod, toggle widget mods.  May try AOKP since there are so many customization options

  • GNEX with Franco Kernel 14. 

    Only issue I’ve had with GNEX is a little instability. Occasional reboots that I never saw on Revolution HD. BUT, battery life is absurd. Actually made it more than 24 hours over the weekend with moderate use. Only 3 or so hours of screen-on time, but screen-off battery life is SICK.

      Try the Franco kernel. You won’t be disappointed…

  • smoothy

  • codename 1.2.0.. apparently it’s a kang… but its so snappy… a lot quicker than aokp…

      I tried ICS-deck last week and thought it was pretty good, but I’ve heard evervolv has surpassed it. How do you like it?

  • Sporttster

    RAZR running the same thing since I bought it because there isn’t much if anything to choose from….thanks, MOTO. Last phone I buy from them…..unlock or lose customers….your choice….

    • But you knew it was locked when you bought it…?

      The only Moto customers that can complain IMO are those of us that purchased the Droid X.

      • Sporttster

        Well, knowing that a ROM can be side loaded using Bootstrap or Safestrap, I’d figured by now that there would be a decent choice available but that hasn’t been the case. This phone has been all but forgotten by the developers. I guess I didn’t expect that knowing that other locked phones have has some developer attention. I won’t make that mistake the second time….going with a unlocked Sammy, whatever it is by then…Galaxy SIV maybe.

        • weapon x

          This phone is far from forgotten…what sites are you looking at? check out Droidrzr.com. Check  out the forums..you will be pleasantly surprised. Awesome site, awesome peeps.  No trolls allowed. period.  Some site moderators, (cough, cough) could really use some good examples of keeping a site troll free

    On my GNex I was running Axiom till that whole thing went south. 🙁 Now running AOKP with Franco’s kernel. Between those and using that app Powermax I get insane battery life now. Also modded the softkeys to that light blue. No theme, but loving this setup!

I also really like ThunderStick-icsBread v1.0.0. Amazing customization between launcher pro themes as well as under laying them with miui themes. “found on rom manager” no MMS though :-(.  What I would love to see is a rom with TSF
