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.


  • Bamf Paradigm as always!!

  • oaxican509

    Xylon V14-beta2 on Galaxy Nexus (toro) with latest Lean Kernel is just beast highly recomended

  • Mike Gall

    Xenon HD 4.2.1

  • Toro – Team Sourcery’s JB Sourcery V4.1. I really like all the customization
    d2vzw – Beanstown106’s Jelly ‘Beans’ Build 8. I like the TW features with the AOSP feel
    N7 – Back and forth between stock rooted and dhacker’s/droidth3ory’s Killrom. I like features in killrom but I find that sometimes all I need is stock AOSP in the tab

  • David Poma

    The new AOKP TORO release

  • Daniel

    I switch between CM10.1 & AOKP

  • PhoenixPath

    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)

  • flashed xenon last night coming from jelly belly. i miss the customization just like when i was on liquidsmooth.

  • Chris Pinola

    up until yesterday i was running MMuzzy’s 4.2.1 GNex (toro) ROM with Tiny kernel and absolutely LOVING it. just switched to AOKP MR1 Build 1 though. hasn’t even been a day though, not bad so far.

  • GawkerRedesignSucks

    CM 10 on a VZW Galaxy Nexus

  • Steve Benson

    Toro here. I’ve been on Shiny for several weeks. Just flashed over to CM 10.1 and so far pleasantly surprised how nicely it runs.

  • ls30

    Batakang v1.0 on Razr HD

    Loving it.

  • kervation

    Verizon GNex running Cyanogenmod 10.1 nightly based on 4.2.1 AOSP. Touch recovery is TWRP with Imoseyon’s Leankernel

  • 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.

  • mjmedstarved

    Jelly Belly 11.1 in tango with LeanKernel v5.4

  • chanstar

    SHINY!! It is as smooth and stock like as BB for Toro. Since BB has not updated to 4.2, this became my new daily driver and its perfect!! Another plus is……it has added wireless display (miracast) functionality (**includes working audio binaries and config).

    Nexus 4: Stock android 4.2.1… Thank you Google.. i so love stock Android…

  • I’m running GalaxyMOD13 on my Verizon SGS3, AOKP JB-mr1 on my Galaxy Nexus and CM10.1 nightlies on my Nexus 10. 🙂

  • Joey Miranda

    gnex android 4.2.1 shiny rom!

  • 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.

  • Steve Schneider

    CM 10.1 VZW SGSIII

  • cashclay

  • g-wiz

    bugless beast on gnex/toro. chosen because pete puts out the most stable build…i’ve been hooked since my OG droid!

  • MTPenguin

    Shiney – Gnex

    2 thumbs up!


  • Pete’s Bugless on Toro. Hungry for 4.2.1 though.

  • Dragonice81

    Verizon Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.2.1 with an AOKP Linaro build and CWM recovery

  • Verizon GNex, Bugless Beast for the past 4 months. Nothing compares IMO

  • Captain_Doug

    AeroEvans CM10 for the incredible 2. This device would be dead otherwise.
