Question Opinion please... ROM noob

After running Sprint stock ROM for 8 months - which was fairly stable once I switched to Titanium - I finally decided to try a custom ROM. Started with Mr X's Sense ROM but didn't quite like the icons and the overall "Gothic" dark color scheme, so I reflashed the latest (or so I think) Mighty ROM (6/20/10/). After a day with this ROM I came to realize that even a custom ROM won't make me like Sense.

So, here's my question... there's tons of ROMs out there and I simply don't have time to try them... what ROM should I stick to if I intend to run Titanium on it ? I.e. what ROM would give me the best overall experience (speed and stability) ? Should I just keep the Migthy ROM and simply run it with Titanium, or is there a better choice ?

Well firstly , your in the wrong section . :/ lol . this is a thread that should go into the HTC Touch Pro 2 General forum not the kitchen/ROM forum .

Secondly , i agree with the whole sense issue .

Try VINs ROMs . Everyone here says that is a good one . i personally didnt like it so i cooked my own . mine is userROM . Also i think people mention Medium Hill's ROMs . so those three i would give a shot !

Re: Opinion please... ROM noob

Not trying to sound like an A$$, but what is the best beer????

Point is---every rom that is continually updated is awesome. The small differences in the rom is what makes them the best for YOU. Unfortunately, that means that YOU get to try them out to find what suits your needs. Nobody here can tell you what you like.

Vin's, Sharkie's, or Lead rom are my suggestions.

Re: Opinion please... ROM noob

Thanks ! I went with MediumHill and so far I am very happy with it - haven't tested MMS yet but everything else is working with no tweaking whatsoever, the thing is fast and responsive, love the new interface (not sure how much of it is 6.5.x vs custom ROM stuff but it's much easier to use overall), the battery life seems very good, and I had over 270mb of free space on a freshly flashed device. I'll keep looking for other Titanium ROMs just in case there's something even better out there but this one is way better than the stock. Thanks to everybody !
