Question of the Day: What ROM are You Currently Running?


Years ago, we were able to run this question as a poll, since there were only a few handsets to choose from along with a few ROM developers who had work worth sampling. These days, there are far too many phones and even more developers that this can only be asked in the form of a question that directs you to the comments. Yep, we’re talking about our regularly scheduled “What ROM are you currently running?” post. We’ve had a number of readers ask for it a handful of times over the last couple of weeks, so we figured it was time to oblige.

So as usual, we’ll simply ask, “What ROM are you currently running?” But after you answer that question, make sure you give us device type, why you chose this specific ROM, and then include any other add-on that you have attached to your setup. People want to know what’s hot on the streets these days – give as much detail as you can.

      I like having the samsung features, mainly s beam, because ive convinced my entire family to switch from iphones to GS3s and it makes life super easy! Also, allshare is awesome, this rom comes with multi-window and all apps enabled. this rom is packed,highly recommend it, all updates are usually rock solid and super smooth. Jkay is also highly recommended, it gives you full control of the status bar and lockscreen customization. I like stock samsung but i want customization, and this rom does it all while retaining almost flawless stability.

  • crazysamz

    cleanrom SE on my Verizon Note II. It’s basically a cleaned up version of the stock verizon ROM with a few tweaks. I haven’t seen anything too customized that runs touchwiz.

    With the S-pen, if you really want to use a lot of the functionality, you need touchwiz, which is one of the only reasons I won’t run AOKP or CM or AOKP roms. I bought a phone with all this great functionality built in, why would I take it all away? To make it 0.5 seconds faster on boot or save 45 minutes on battery? I have THREE BATTERIES! HUZZAH!

        Well it starts off terrible for me. But after a few days it’s really good. I’m sort of a moderate user, sometimes heavy, but I normally text and make phone calls and update and download apps and check email and stuff.

        But I normally get around 5 or 6 hours of screen time? I have an extended battery though!

Which I later found out that wifi tethering was also broken on this one as well…I always wondered why people would move from ROM to rom so often now I see why…All these changes were done over the past week or so.

  • Stock Jelly Bean 4.1.2 on OG Droid Razr – Think the time for a new phone is coming – this one is starting to run through the battery at a rather alarming rate even with root, cpu sleeper, SetCPU and battery tweaks in my build.prop

    Usually 12-16 hours is all I can muster, I used to be able to get almost 60 hours on a single charge on custom ROMs but nothing has been close to that lately.

    BB 4.1.2 with Franco Kernel Rev 300 OC to 1.6 (stable) no under-volting with interactive governor. Running nova launcher and I get about 2 hours 3 min of screen on time with 15-18 hours of use. Maybe not the latest, but with the smoothest most stable performance why change.

  • Daistaar

    Vigor 360 1.1 for the HTC Rezound. Soon it’ll be CM10 thanks to Chad as the Rezound now has JellyBean!

    • brando56894

      Ah the Rezound has JB now? I ditched my Rez for the Gnex a few months ago but I still have her sitting in my drawer waiting to get sold, I’m going to have to give it a go to see how it compares to JBSourcery 4.1 (4.2.1 base) running at 1.6+ GHz onn my Nexus.

      • Daistaar

        Yep, the Rezound has finally (unofficially) gotten Jellybean in the form of CM10. I haven’t tried it yet as there’s some small stuff missing and I need a solid DD for work. You can try it on you spare (after making a backup) and let us know if its worth it. I’ll try it for a bit before upgrading. February is DNA/S3 month for me. Hopefully CM10 could hold me over until M7/S4 lol.

        • brando56894

          I just tried IAmTheOneTheyCallNeo’s Rage 2.3 on my Rezound and it’s pretty damn fast. I ran an Antutu Benchmark comparison (even though it doesn’t really mean much) against my Gnex running CM10.1 OC’d to 1.6 and the Rezound beat the Nexus, just by a little though.

    Stock rooted 4.2 on my Nexus 4. Not 4.2.1 because, when I install it, it apparently uninstalls most of my battery.

  • EvanTheGamer

    My Galaxy Nexus is running the “no longer being developed for” Bugless Beast 4.1.2.

    Now that Alfonso is no longer developing for Android, I just wish I had a boarded the Bugless Beast Bandwagon way sooner, so that I would have been able to enjoy the many wonders that the BB brought to the Android ROM table. Damnit!

    Why Alfonso WHY?!

    • brando56894

      Pete is done with Android in general or just the Gnex?

      • EvanTheGamer

        Last time I heard, he’s done with Android altogether, but anyone out there, correct me if I’m wrong.

        I know for certain that he’s done with BB though. I wish he wasn’t since BB 4.2.1 would be a powerhouse of a ROM, but unfortunately BB 4.1.2 may be the last of its kind. Damn.

        • brando56894

          Wow, that’s unexpected. If it’s true it’s the end of an era, that’d be like if Koush decided to stop developing for Android. But the great thing about Open Source Software is that there’s always someone waiting to take his place!

          • EvanTheGamer

            Yep! Exactly. Maybe if Alfonso is really done with BB, maybe someone will step up and ask him for his permission to develop the next version of the ROM. Alfonso could even be some sort of a consultant, basically just someone that the next BB ROM dev could consult with from time to time. We’ll see though.

    Currently running a bone-stock RAZR M and pretty happy with it. No intention on customizing at this time. I’ve got deep roots with Verizon so the N4 isn’t an option, otherwise that’s what I would probably have. Handed down my Rezound to my wife – it’s running Cleanrom ICS, very stable and good battery life. Also purchased three Nook tablets for the family this Christmas, now all rooted and running CM10. Awesome other than battery life and no Netflix. I know why Netflix doesn’t work, but a bit puzzled by the poor battery life.

    Blackbean from Team Baked is the most smoothest rom Ive ever used. Fully inverted and full of different customization’s. I never even try other roms cause Baked has everything I need. Use with Rom Toolbox Pro and Beautiful Widgets and my phone is sublime.

    Running CM 10.1 latest nightly

    Love CM, I have since my Eris days. Perfect merge of vanilla with some extra add-ons and always running smoothly. Only complaint is the Bluetooth sound quality compared to CM10. Hope it changes soon but I appriciate everything all the CM guys do for us crack-flashers.

  • Liberty on my DX. Made me a happy camper.

    Taking the new AOKP out for a test drive on the G Nex, some version of 4.12 on the Nex 7, BB on the OG Droid and something old and crusty on the Nook Tablet.

    MMuzzy 4.2.1 Toro

  • “Beans” build 2, 4.1.1 on VZW Galaxy S3. It is TouchWiz based but themed like AOSP so it’s rock solid and looks good too. He’s up to build 8 but so far I’ve had no issues on this build and have thus seen no reason to update lol. I used to be a crack flasher when i had my Fascinate but in those days new releases were so much more exciting, now it seems that most Roms are just a little more of the same with a bit of different flashy stuff.

    From Steve Spear’s Androtransfer folder. I was browsing the Fascinate topic on Rootz and saw his PUB build for the Fascinate described. Figured I’d give it a go on my Fassy and lo’: There it was for my Galaxy nexus as well.
    It is Zippy, and 4.2.1.
    That is all.
    (Still running GB MIUI 1.29 with Glitch 13.1 kernel on my Fascinate)

  • Azdrifter

    Verizon GNex On Android 4.2.1 rooted with JBSourcery Rom on Trinity Kernal.I like how customizable this Rom is everything can be tweaked and changed and the ability to switch kernals by touch is great.Having the inverted Gapps is also very cool everyone that sees it is always amazed !

  • Rodeojones000

    GNex: BAKED v6 (and anxiously awaiting the soon to be released v7) with Black Exodus theme. The ROM is based off of AOSP but the developer then cherry-picks all the cool features and add-ons from other ROMs and packages it together with 100% inverted gapps and framework. Flawless and beautiful. Definitely my favorite ROM.

    Nexus 10: unlocked and rooted but otherwise stock. Haven’t come across any ROMs for it that screamed must try.

    Nexus 7: also unlocked, rooted and stock, but thinking I might give the new AOKP build a try.

  • CM10.1 nightly builds on my primary devices, including a Nexus 7 (Grouper) and Verizon Galaxy Nexus (Toro). My Nook Color (Encore) gets CM10.1 nightly builds but has never really been a speedy device. Pete’s Bugless Beast was my favorite in all previous polls but he seems to have moved on to other interests.

    • Attention to everyone posting about Bugless Beast: you are still on Android 4.1.2 . 4.2+ has many great new features and CM10.1 nightlies are very stable in my experience.

  • Buckazui

    i’m running Mmuzzy 4.2.1 rom on my gnex i don’t have any mods other than the ones he built in to the rom. i love it its been smooth and bug free i sometimes miss the extra tweaks the you find on aokp and liquid rom but i have really grown to like the aosp feel. been running it with no issues since it was released in November.

    Chose Vicious because when it came out it was one of the first stable Jelly Bean ROMS that was really easy to install for my second ever rooted phone. Very smooth. I’m thinking I should upgrade here soon though to 4.2.

  • Jeremy Martin

    CyanogenMod 10.1 on my Verizon Galaxy Nexus and my Motorola Xoom LTE. Great smooth running rom with plenty of features. Most of the other rom’s strive to be like CyanogenMod or they use some of CyanogenMod’s code in their own rom’s so I figure why not use the “source” of it all.

    I have 3 android devices running roms, most are based off of stock installs with some minor tweaks. I prefer stock based roms because they seem to have the fewest bugs and overall are highly stable. Both of my primary devices I use similar stock based roms.

        I have to agree. I ran it on a whim because BB and CNA died, and I enjoyed the inverted theme. I soon found out it runs smooth, has good battery life (when paired with leankernel) and is getting plenty of features.

    I’m rocking mmuzzy’s French Vanilla 4.2 ROM for my VZW Galaxy Nexus. It’s mostly AOSP, with a few tweaks like T9 dialing, an expanded power menu, and improved quick toggles. I love it because it’s buttery smooth and incredibly stable. I’ll likely be throwing his ROM on my Nexus 7 once I decide to root it.

    • Jimbo Slice

      This is what I’ve been using, and it’s been more stable with less lag than any other ROM I’ve ever used.

    IMHO ROMs are overrated and not even worth messing with anymore like back in the early days of Android when we saw big benefits from doing so.

    • SpaceJIMM

      Does 4.2.1 add that /data/media/0 entry in the filesystem like it does for tablets? Do you know?

      • It does. Not a big deal though.

      • PSU_DI

        Yes it does the /0 will be there going forward. It’s google’s way of handling multiple users. Shiny is one of the best ROMs I’ve ran in a long time. If you prefer a stock Google feel you can’t get anything better. It’s stable, smooth and fast. It’s not even rooted…

        • qwopzxnm

          BaldwinGuy77 had a post saying that moving forward the ROM would be rooted. So expect that in future releases.

          I gave up waiting for AOKP and went to look for Bugless Beast, that’s how I found Shiny and have loved it ever since.

          • PSU_DI

            I think you might have misread the post. if you still install from a full wipe it still won’t be rooted but he did post that he was working on a script that will keep ROOT anytime we update from one build to another if root is installed.

            I’ve been recently working with him to resolve the Google Play Movie issue. Which we’ve identified as an issue with his AOSP kernel.

          • qwopzxnm

            The post I was referring to is below. Either way, it’s nice to see that type of attention by the Dev.

            Also, thanks for working with him to ID and address the Play Movie issue. Anyone helping to advance the ROM is a great asset.


          • PSU_DI

            Yup that’s the post
            “Installer will keep root in between new builds – you won’t have to flash the SuperSU ZIP every time you update!”
            He is doing that because right now we have to flash the SuperSU zip after each update. The script will allow the people who root to keep root.

            As for Google Play Movie issue. He is having a dificult time getting his kernel to play nicely with it. His ROM and Google Play Movies work fine running on Franco’s latest kernel build.

      • bobo

        yeah, it does.

    • Little G

      Same here and I’m loving the “BB” like feel with the goodies of 4.2.1. (Verizon GNex)

    • Is this a good ROM for fans of BB? For the most part I simply refuse to use anything other than BB. I want stock, I don’t want any of the extra crap found in CM or AOKP, and I want it to be stable with all the normal Android features with nothing broken.

      Peter hasn’t been updating BB for quite a while, so I’m looking for a suitable replacement.

      • Steve Benson

        Yes, this is as good or better than Bugless. I was a long time Bugless user and Shiny is the first and only ROM that compares to the rock solid stability and performance.

        • NexusPhan69

          I’m exactly the same. Starting using tiny kernel too. Battery life is off the charts these days.

          • What is your screen-on time?

          • NexusPhan69

            I consistently use my phone 2-2.5 hours screen on time per day. Its 44% so I’d guess its right in that 2 hour range. (I’m at 78% right now after 9 hours but I only had the screen on for 40 minutes thus far so I wanted to pick an old screenshot)

          • my friend’s stock galaxy note 2 on AT&T gave him 5 hours screen time.. i was so jealous

          • NexusPhan69

            That’s awesome. It’s a bigger screen too. But, that is the price we pay as GNex users for the first true HD screen. Well worth it IMO. I don’t have a lot of screen on time compared to others (2.5 hours per day is over 10% of your life, on your phone – sad) and battery was not an issue after Shiny OTA-like ROM.

          • that’s definitely true we had the first 720p screen if im not mistaken. we also had 4G LTE much earlier than most phones which is a reason as to why the battery dies so quickly.

          • John

            Hate when people don’t show that. Given that idle time, I’d say not much.

          • NexusPhan69

            It’s 44%. That’s a lot. I would have shown it but its old so I don’t have it. Screen % now is only 24% with 40 minutes. Useless showing that.

          • URL?

        • Sounds good, I’ll give it a try.

          • NexusPhan69

            The lock screen really is horrible. I agree. 4.1 was perfect. They should not have changed it.

          • i actually like the new 4.2 lockscreen because i get to peek at my text messages through the messaging widget without unlocking and opening the messaging app.

          • KleenDroid

            ? You have to be kidding….

            I’d like to think the average person is smart enough to figure out such a simple operating system.

          • Bob Sacamano

            Lockscreen Policy in the Play Store should help fix that for you.

      • I am a BB convert, developer is super responsive.

      • qwopzxnm

        As others have said, yes this is a great replacement. I actually found this ROM when searching for Bugless and a majority of the posts I’ve seen are people who converted from Bugless to Shiny. The Dev (BaldwinGuy77) is very responsive and has stated that his goals are to make his ROM as much like the stock experience as it can be. So far it has been rock solid for me.

    • Eric

      Same here, used to be BB but wanted 4.2.1, loving it so far.

    • tyguy829

      Does hotspot work? Either though the built in one or something like wifi tether? I tried muzzy and cm10.1 and went back to 4.1 because i assumed it was a problem with 4.2

      • NexusPhan69

        No problems here. But I use the power toggles app for free tether (used it before I was rooted too) So that might be why.

      • cheezer88

        yes it does, i use it all the time

      • Tim242

        Hot spot works even on stock ROM. Just install a toggle from the play store.

        • NexusPhan69

          Bingo. No root even required.

      • qwopzxnm

        I use the hotspot feature all the time and haven’t had any issues.

    • Bigwavedave25

      Same here on my Vz toro Galaxy Nexus. Tried out Shiny for an 4.2.1 OTA (stockish like BB) and haven’t strayed away, yet. Awesome dev, super nice and very responsive.

      Nexus7 wifi – still stock 4.2.1, rooted.

    • humidity

      I currently have BB and have been looking to get in on some 4.2 action. Does Shiny have built in tethering like BB?

      • CurtisNic

        yes, tether works

    • Any pre-4.2 install steps I can review before making the leap? Running BB and not sure if the jump to 4.2 is worth it. I do have the itch to flash a 4.2 rom and Shiny is in the lead.

      • Dean Milord

        4.2.1 has been goo to me. Just make sure you are on the LATEST Clockwork Recovery or TWRP. The main issue has be the sd getting copied/moved to sdcard/0/ dir. And then not getting recognised in recovery – in some cases by the phone anymore. The newer recoveries fixes that issue.
        Happy crack flashin to you. Hope eveything works out well for you.

  • JBSourcery 4.1. Been great for a couple weeks. The only downside is the battery life, which seems to affect all 4.2.1 ROMs. The Google services are using way more battery than they ever did before. Wonder what gives…

    • wonder if it’s because of Google Now. The way it seems to work is it is running in the background (navigation, weather, etc.) but I could be wrong. Just a guess.
