Exclamation WHAT IS THE ROM OF PREFERENCE FOR SPEED AND EYE CANDY

I just rooted my epic and am now looking for a rom that doesnt eat up my battery and offers many functions, without all the sprint apps that come with the stock rom. What seems to be the most functional with the most useful bells and whistles???

In my opinion custom rom's are lame, just people trying to fix what isn't broken. Unless your phone has been discontinued & there are no more android updates, then there is no need for custom rom. Just root, use apps like titanium backup, uninstall app's you don't use or want. This, in my opinion is the best way to for minimum " force close" apps, and missing crucial app's like hidden menus: diag mode, data,debug, manual programming are most of the time missing from custom roms. If there is an official update your custom rom
won't be able to receive it be cause it lame. Even if your flashing to another carrier you don't need custom roms to have it fully functioning web, mms,nav...

While that is certainly true for the casual user and those users who "just need it to work"...some of us are looking to get more out of our devices. With custom roms you can:

  • Get rid of carrier bloatware that is using up your resources and limited memory.
  • Add custom apps that your device may not have on it natively.
  • Get rid of things like CIQ (Carrier IQ).
  • Overclock the processor to enable more speed in terms of rendering, opening and closing of apps, better video playback.
  • Theme your entire device.
  • Get "enhanced" apps like Sprint Hotspot, etc.
  • and more....
....but ultimately in comes down to personal choice and how much time you want to spend playing with your phone

Coz

Let remove your battey from the equation: reinstall stock eveything, if your battery does the same thing, check bettery, if it's good then more than likely it the crap your were told to install

Re: Help me choose a custom ROM!

woozy, thank you for your response. that leads me to another question. I rooted it last night and now would love to get all the sprint apps off like nascar and other stock apps that i simply do not use. how do i go about uninstalling those apps from this point?
