    Default Best ROM for GSM Galaxy Nexus?

    What is your favorite ROM on your GSM Galaxy Nexus? I'm running Revolution HD on mine right now, but I'm looking for something different... I looked at MoDaCo's options but I don't want the search button, etc, and you have to pay to use the kitchen (I'm a little tight on money at the moment since I paid so much on this thing lol). What are your opinions?
    If I've made a difference, please make sure to thank me.

    AOKP B25/FrancoKernel18.6

    I highly recommend AOKP Milestone 3. So many options, works flawlessly. Match it up with francos kernel 16.1 and it is so buttery smooth and just perfect. I honestly couldn't ask for a faster device and battery life is excellent too.

    OK do I just find all that at xda? Also, does it improve the auto-rotation? That's the only thing that I found lacking in performance on the stock and revolution HD rom

    That's where I download it from. The ROM actually has an option built in to that lets you set the rotation speed. Along with francos kernel, everything improves, IMHO.

    I'm using Apex 1.0.2. I like it very much, I also tried AOKP and Revolution HD, but in the end settled on Apex.

    When I had my GN, I wanted the stock feel as much as possible so I went with Android Revolution HD. It was fast and worked great. I tried the Modaco but like you I don't like the search button on ICS. I sold my GN and now I miss it, I hated the camera which was the reason for selling the phone, but I might buy it again just want to see what is on the horizon before I pull the trigger.

    Default Re: Best ROM for GSM Galaxy Nexus?

    Was gonna start a new "what's your favorite custom ROM for Galaxy Nexus" thread, but I found this one.

    I got my Google Gnex on Friday and am happy with my new device (coming from an Infuse, which is also a great device). But I do want to flash a custom ROM... so, wondering if anyone has any more recent discoveries or insight on good ROMs? I know it's largely subjective, but still, I'm all ears!

    What factors are most important to you? Number of features? Speed? Stability? Number of themes available for? Frequency of updates? Stock vs far from stock experience?

    Speed and stability would be tied for number one on my wish list. And, in terms of experience, closer to stock ICS than something that's really cartoonish or space-agey. I guess a conservative ROM... but one that's faster and adds a bit more functionality than stock. For example, I'd love to have a wifi toggle in the notification bar. Having said all that, if there's a ROM that is just awesome, but quite different than stock ICS, I'd be willing to give it a whirl. This will be my first custom ROM flash, so something that's relatively easy to do (via CWM).

    I might be interested in a rom but never done it before. Is there a good site that explains step by step on how-to install a rom on the galaxy nexus?

    I'd also be interested in recommendations
    1) Stability / lack of major bugs is by far the most important
    ...
    2) Features and performance tied for a distant 2nd
    3) Conservative style (nothing wild or cartoonish)

    Any suggestions and any help pointing me to a good how-to would be greatly appreciated.

    Have a look at this thread on XDA for help on getting started:

    Start with the Wugfresh Toolkit method of rooting and unlocking your phone. It's a snap!

    I've been using AOKP Milestone 5 since I got my phone and it's been rock solid. Pair it with ogdobber's for amazing battery life. I left my phone unplugged last night, and when I woke up, the battery level was exactly where it was 8 hours ago

    Just got my GNex on tuesday. Spent most of the day testing Rom and Kernel combinations.

    The fastest on my phone was Stock with Franco's Milestone 3 Kernel, second was Android Revolution 4.0.1 with the same kernel, followed by LiquidSmooth 1.35.

    I wound up sticking with Revolution 4.0.1 with Franco's and Nova launcher

    Well I guess I could say AOKP Milestone 5 is my favourite. In the same breath I could also say that AOKP Milestone 5 is my first ROM (less then 2hrs old)! Its not bad, I'll play with it and see.

    It seems faster and smoother. Still looks like ICS which is ok by me. I don't want anything to crazy looking. (prefer minimalistic and dark themes)

    the playstore app is missing because you didnt install the "gapps" (Google Apps). its a separate package that you install just like cyanagenmod.
    This will be the same case with AOKP as well. the reason why ALL ROM developers are doing this is because Google asked them to due to proprietary issues.

    I would stay away from kernel for now since you are trying to learn ROM installation. Install AOKP ROM and then install gapps.

    You shouldn't ask others for the best one...it's a matter of taste and preference.
