Best Rom for verison TP

I have looked and have note really found anything definitive on the subject. There a lot of good ROM's available. However the verizon touch pro is pretty lame compared to other carriers. What is the best rom for us verizon users. I have heard great things about all of the ssk roms. Mighty's Roms look awsome also but I don't know if it would be the best us of such limited hardware. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Another question I have is about flash from the SD card. I know it can be done I have seen the threads but what about when you want to cook it yourself using a kitchen. How is that done?

MOD's if there is already threads answering these questions please PM me the links and delete this thread. Thanks to all.

Re: Best Rom for verison TP

I didn't have as much luck with SSK, I've found Mighty (both 4 and 5) to be very stable. At the risk of severe public harassment, I actually think the stock MR1 update runs just as well, without some of the bells and whistles.

Re: Best Rom for verison TP

I think it all comes down to the page pool. Verizon is so crippled with its ram that any page pool above 16 just eats too much memory. I also like SSK's roms

Check out Merdin's as well

There is a pagepool changer that I believe can be used to change any ROM image (.nhb). Mighty's ROMs come with it bundled. I set pagepool to 8 and I'm running beautifully.

Check DCD's ROM thread, pretty sure he put something out for VZW users.

Re: Best Rom for verison TP

I like SSK's kitchen. I used Mighty5 for a while and liked that one too. For his I had to install a cab to change the length of SMS to 160 but that and the pagepool were the only things I had to change.

I think for the most part it will come down to personal preference. Just change the pagepool to 6-12 meg and you should be fine.

Re: Best Rom for verison TP

the verizon tp isn't *that* crippled that you should worry about which rom to pick based on its less than too much ram. i don't know about anyone else with a cdma non verizon tp, but i don't exceed 60% of my ram, if i was missing some, i probably wouldn't even notice. btw, i'm running mighty5. you should definitely keep to a pagepool that's 16mb or lower though.
