    opinion on ROMs from a flashaholic

    I have run pretty much every ROM out there since the early days of the first version of Liberty. And what i've found is that pretty much every AOSP rom has its bugs and disadvantages. Sure, the customization is cool, but in the end I just want my phone to work, and to its full potential. The fact that AOSP roms do not record 720p video with multiple mics is a huge flaw for one, and there is inevitably some sort of force close, connection issue, you name it. Thats why i'm on Vortex, and probably will be as long as I have my DX. Everything works and it utilizes the full potential of the phone. On top of that the speed and stability are superb. I know people get crazy quadrant scores with AOSP roms but in my experience most of them eventually lag while Vortex remains snappy consistently. I literally have zero issues with this rom and have been running it for several months. If i see AOSP, i dont even bother looking any further, ill pass. My fave AOSP rom has always been liquid, and the newest version 3.2 has alot of reported bugs, so as much as i'd like to try it i will just stick with what works. just my two cents.

    I can't disagree with anything you've said. My experience with flashing roms has always led me back to vortex but the flashaholic in me always gets me trying any new version that comes out for whatever rom. It's so easy anymore to go from rom to rom but it's also getting old (for me anyways) so i decided just to hang my hat on Vortex. 2 words describe Vortex....Everything Works!

    For future reference I hope you don't look down on AOSP the versions we are getting are a great taste but on a fully unlocked device they function a bit different and usually a lot better. Custom kernel and actually using aosp libs can go a long way for the cameras and such. Just food for thought

    I understand and agree with what your saying cory. I've come to the conclusion that I'll only have this phone for a short period of time before going forward so im going to spend more time enjoying it and everything that came with the phone instead of waiting for endless fixes which never really seem to fix much on some roms. I can't say I've haven't had a great time flashing roms and learning more about these phones than i ever thought i would. All in all it's been a great experience and i wouldn't change a thing. This forum is awesome.

    Got to agree w/ savage on vortex. I've been going back and forth between liquid 3.2 and Vortex RC1 and also learned a helluva lot from you guys here at DXF. Love this forum .......

    I agree and disagree with y'all
    I am running MIUI and love this, loved it since day one and even though there are more stable Roms out there there's no rom with so much customization options. You have to give and take hah
    As for single init roms I love vortex apex and liberty all for different reasons but apex being my go to rom

    My only problem with Vortex is that I continually have data dropping and can't find a wireless tether that works consistently.

    I never tried Vortex cos I see its still in RC status but Liberty is one good ROM. Recently I try MIUI, beatiful ROM with LOTS of customization but one drawback is digital compass cant be calibrated and I use it frequently. So I try SSX2.2 now and have amazing battery life. I rarely use camera to record so I dont mine losing 720p recording.

    Before I have my DX, I have OG Droid and development of custom ROM is so amazing there. Not just ROM but also modified kernel, something we cant get for DX
