At the moment I'm running Darkys 10.4.2 full release and whilst it's not a bad ROM to be on, I was wondering which other custom ROM's that are out there that you good folks of this forum use?

I've always stuck with Darky's ROM's because it was the first custom ROM that I'd flashed and the members on the forum are really helpful.

Should I try another ROM and if so, which one?

Answers on a postcard please :)

Thanks in advance :D

Al :D

Ninja edit .... I forgot to mention I'm using an SGS1.

I've got the teamhacksung ICS rom on my sgs1 and love it.

I tried DarkyROM but prefer ICS so went back to teamhacksung.

Neat Rom XWLP4 with ICS Domination 4.1. Made for each other, apparently.

Oops didnt see the sg1.

I tried that ROM mrk but its start up screen is soooooo girly :eek: I quite like the look of ICS but I found it hard to navigate around when looking for various options though. I suppose I just need to get used to it. I'm gonna try a few other versions of ICS to see how they feel seeing as I have bugger all else to do today :D

I tend to flash a new rom every week on my desire hd. Unable to settle on one.

Currently trying out an MIUI ICS ROM, it's not too bad.

Cyanogen Mod 9 since I'm not too fond of AOKP on the SII (well the unofficial one anyway).
Haven't really tried any Samsung based ICS ROMS yet.

I use Virtuous Inquisition on my sensation. Couldn't be more please with it, better than the official sensation ICS update in my opinion

You can disable the boot animation in ROM control, first thing I do whenever I flash a new version. You just get the default Android animation instead.

Pink unicorns.....no thanks!!!!

AOKP is an entirely different ROM, but the ROM you're using is a mix of CM9 (base) and AOKP (customisations). Since they're both open source, it's fairly simple to mix and match features. The actual AOKP developers haven't got Galaxy S II's apparently, so that's why it isn't officially supported, but we have other people porting stuff over onto a CM9 base.

Yeah that's what I mean, it's CM9 but with the features of AOKP so the best of both worlds.

Smartbeat Venemous ICS on the Desire HD at the moment.

Very fast, but usual ICS Sense 4.0A missing features on the DHD the main being lack of camera and some touchscreen issues with games. But otherwise the fastest, smoothest, longest battery life DHD experience I've had so far.

Kind of related...
Do the ROM devs usually release regular incremental updates and you can apply without it wiping anything?
