This rom is my own creation based on the best (in my opinion) features available from other roms. I've found it super stable and pretty darn fast. This is my daily driver, and I'll always keep updating it for myself, but if there's enough interest, I'll release new versions here as well.

I'd like to thank all the rom developers before me, especially Bigxie(aka Fabolous), Mobile_Sensei, and Jrummy. Without their work, the blur based roms would suck.

A little about the rom:
I've always liked just a little bit of blur to make sure my phone can use 100% of its features, like hdmi, 720p recording, multiple mics used in video recording. I also hate the blur email app for exchange usage. So, I threw out the garbage, and brought in some goodies. Yes, there's two galleries (3D and blur) that's because I like the blur camera but love the 3d gallery. Keeping both just makes my experience more smooth. After switching back and forth from rom to rom, liking one feature here and another there, I began compiling my own apps and settings to run on my phone. I figure it's time to share and see what everyone else thinks of it.

Installation:
** You Must Already Be On a .602 GB System Build To Use This ROM! ** (if you're not sure, just ask)
1. Download To SD-Card
2. Bootstrap With D2 Bootstrap & Reboot Into CWR
3. Wipe Data / Cache / Dalvik Cache
4. Install the zip
5. Reboot
6. Go through initial setup
7. When Prompted To Choose Launcher Or Setup, Check Enable As Default & Choose LAUNCHER.


Going from 1.0 to 1.1, if you run into issues, I recommend clearing data and re-installing the rom.

**Enjoy**

A little about the vortex script:
Options:
-Mount system for read write
-Mount system for read only
-Enable startup scripts (enabled by default)
-Disable startup scripts (in case you have some kind of issue)
-Reboot phone (just in case)

Run the script as su in terminal emulator and use the menu
Also available are shortcuts:
As su, run the script with options:
vortex -rw (will mount system as read write)
vortex -ro (will mount system as read only)
vortex -enablestartup (enable startup scripts)
vortex -removestartup (disable startup scripts)

Know Issues:
* Currently None

FWIW, I have been on this ROM for a week now and it is my favorite so far. It is definately the most eye-pleasing ROM.

Yes. It just seemed as though I always had an issue with MIUI. Something small, that would bug me. I like Vortex especially because it looks so nice stock, no need for a theme. I did not hate MIUI, in fact I have a backup on my SD card. But, to answer your question, yes vortex is a much nicer-looking ROM.IMHO.
