Custom ROM Comparison Table

I am a new TP owner and I've been studying all the ROMs available for over a week now and am in a tizzy as to how to decide which would be best for me.

Also, in spite of there being several how-to guides, the terminology and acronyms are rarely defined. I suggest the compilation of a glossary of acronyms, terms, and method be stickied for new users.

Furthermore, on the topic of ROM selection, I suggest some sort of master comparison table be assembled so that new and novice users may find it easier to select the ROM that is right for them. Instead of leaving the matter to a simple popularity contest (if one were to sort the forum by the number of views or replies), a more objective and standard table for comparison could be created, showing actual component features, modifications, and performance benchmarks among the different builds.

A table like this would foster greater competition and development throughout the community.

Re: Custon ROM Comparison Table

If the actual data fields could be decided on (what details to compare), each ROM developer could easily fill in those details rather quickly, as opposed to one person just doing the entire thing on his or her own.

If I had any idea as to what to compare, I would get the ball rolling, but I have no clue as to where to start.

Re: Custom ROM Comparison Table

As far as which ROM and comparing, you will probably have to start flashing them yourself. Because the "Perfect Rom" isn't out there. But the "Perfect for me ROM" is. It's a personal choice. I can recommend the SSK 2.4 ROM or the SsS one, both are great "for me" ROMs. I am currently using the SSK. But after a couple flashes (I have now done over 20) it gets real easy. And you can load up the TP like you want in less than a half hour. So get out there and flash away.

Re: Custom ROM Comparison Table

The ONLY way to make a perfect rom is to use a kitchen and build it yourself...

There are many GREAT roms out there....But there will always be one thing missing or added that you don't like.

What I suggest is to try all of the roms that have kitchens to go with them...Try them out and if the rom is close to what you want, download the kitchen and tweak accordingly.

Re: Custom ROM Comparison Table

rheyre all correct about the perfect rom. try them all for a few days and see what you like and dont like about each one. its kinda like dating, except the rom doesnt keep calling you asking if youve been flashing other roms. once you find the right rom youll know it.
