Hi all I'm new to android and the epic 4g. I'm looking for some rom suggestions, by people who have used different roms. My main use will be wifi tethering, then phone second. Is there any roms out there that work without any problems wifi tethering. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My phone won't arrive until thursday, so I'm going to keep reading, reading, reading. But would love to hear from people who have used different roms.
My own personal opinion Bonsai v4.1.1 is definately one to look at. Very stable, has an easy rooting method (Bonsai Master Key Unlocker) and has been heavy tested and continues constant testing to improve on any imperfections. Has some of the most beneficial mods without overkill and yet still retains a relatively stock appearance aside from most bloatware removed.
I am very happy with Syndicate Frozen v1.1.1 as well. Its been very stable since 1.0 came out.
I'd go with SRF 1.1.1 as well. I've installed this ROM a few times and each version has installed without a hitch. The phone has been fast, and with Genocide kernel, the battery life exceptional. ACE was very good as well and was close to stock in appearance, but faster and with better battery life. I kept SRF because I perceived it to be faster.
Haven't tried Bonsai, Frankenstein, or Truly Epic. Im sure they're pretty good as well.
I would recommend any of these , 1) ACE 2.0 ( even though Paul627g is too humble to recommend it ) , 2) MyFrankensteinEC05 , 3) SyndicateROM Frozen 1.1.1 and 4) Urban Fury ... you cannot go wrong with any of these. Please keep in mind that each phone is a little different so be careful with the various kernels out there and possible undervolting / overvolting , make sure you read the various forums for very helpful hints and advice
You can't go wrong with Syndicate ROM Frozen 1.1.1, Bonsai 4.1.2 or Ace 2.0. All are very solid and offer big improvements over stock. It's so easy to root and flash different ROM's that you should give several a try.
My favorite is Midnight, be sure to read his blogs - SRF is very good, but reading his personal story and seeing the time, effort, and responses he puts into his hobby, building roms for us on the Epic,
make me truly appreciate it more - it runs great.
