Hey guys! I'm gonna go ahead and compile a list of ROMs and Kernels as suggested by the community. I feel this is a great way to supply information for those who can't sift through 60 pages on XDA, and would like a list of user-given pros and cons.

When suggesting a ROM, Kernel or Modification, please make sure your post contains the following requisite information:
  • Name of ROM, Kernel, Mod
  • Developer credit
  • XDA (or other) link
  • Phone model(s)
  • Android Version(s)
  • Features
  • Purpose and/or requisite ROM/Kernel/Mod (if necessary)
  • Pros and Cons
  • Rating (This will be changed according to community input)
If you're unsure how to format this information, just use the list below.

Thanks for the help! Also, if anyone has any uncatalogued information about a specific item, please post in this thread with the necessary information that will help me to modify the appropriate item.


[ROM]CyanogenMod 7.2.0 Alpha Version 4 12/19

playin4sheezy & the crew at CyanogenMod
XDA Forums
Galaxy SII i727 and i727-r LTE editions
This is CyanogenMod 7.2.0 modified for us GSII LTE users! Pretty much the exact same thing just with the proper modifications to allow LTE users the ability to use it.
Purpose: Get rid of your bloatware and add a ton of new features for the usability of your phone. Information can be found at www.CyanogenMod.com

Requires: da_g kernel update for fixes of WiFi antennas and some network issues. Kernel link can be found at the XDA forum link above.

Pros and Cons: For a version declared as Alpha, this runs GREAT. No glitches or bugs found thus far as long as you get the da_g kernel running with the ROM.

Rating: A+

[ROM] 11/23/11 | Fresh Evo 4.3.3 | OTA 4.54.651.1 | Carrier IQ Removed (Contributed by Psywar)

XDA Forums
Android 2.3.3
Purpose: Gets rid of bloatware and makes the stock Sense UI run pretty smooth.

Requires: Rooted phone.

Pros and Cons: I have not really found any Cons. One of the best features Flipz added was the ability to update to the newest version of his ROM right though the phone itself.

Rating: A+

[ROM] CyanogenMod 7 (Contributed by Psywar)

The CyanogenMod Team
Multiple Phones (Check site for availability. Also, check XDA Forums for possible dev ROMs that suit your unsupported phone)
Android 2.3.7
Purpose: Get rid of bloatware, makes your phone run super, super fast. It is truly like a whole new phone with this ROM.

Requires: Rooted Phone.

Pros and Cons: Only real Con is the fact that you need to get a GPS and Tether fix. I guess with out the GPS Patch it is off by quite a bit. The Tether fix allows you to use the free wireless tether app. I guess any of the AOSP ROM's require the GPS fix though.

Rating: A+

[Kernel] Tiamat 4.1.0 - This is for AOSP ROM's only! (Works with Cyanogen and NOT Fresh Evo (Contributed by Psywar)

Tiamat Kernel Developers
XDA Forums
Certain HTC devices and the Motorola Xoom (Check site for specifics)
Purpose: Adds an awesome interactive governor and aims to provide ample performance for responsiveness while keeping power consumption in check. Has improved Voltage Tables. Helps immensely with your battery life. The kernel also gives you the ability to use different modes when using your phone like performance mode that will overclock your CPU and other modes that will run lower clock speeds to save you battery.

Requires: an AOSP ROM

Pros and Cons: It can take up to 72 hours before the Kernel fully takes over.

Rating: A+

MIUI! I love the interfaces. A slew of folks complain that it too greatly resembles IOS for their interest. However, you can use any launcher of choice, and the theme possibilities are endless and ever changing.
Read more about it and see some previews on their site. A lot of phone devs end up building custom versions, so if you're interested in MIUI I'd check your phone's thread on XDA or AF. They're working out the kinks in MIUI ICS, which looks AWESOME.

Hello Guys,

Remove and reinstall the program which causes this dll Error. If the problem occurs after you run some specific program, some of the dynamic link library (.dll) files may be damaged. To troubleshoot this problem, first completely remove the program. After you completely remove the program, you can reinstall the program.

All Your Comment For Android Development are welcome.

Thanks in advance.
