It’s an appreciated change of pace when a team of developers can simply state their goal. Over on the BAMF site, the developers intro the Paradigm ROM with, “When we set out to build this ROM, we wanted to keep the feel as stock as possible while adding as much functionality as possible.

If you owned an HTC Thunderbolt at any point during the last year, rooted it, and tossed on a custom ROM, there is a good chance that it was one of Team BAMF’s. They basically took over that whole scene from the get-go and never let up.

They tossed out all of the “useless” tweaks and mods, but left you with enough to add to the stock experience. You will still find customizable quick controls, an LTE widget, custom clock, customizable lock screen apps, and many of the rest of the “must haves” in Nexus ROMS. Again, this should be a good one.
