    ROM
    CM7 Nightlies, incredik

    Default ROMs

    Hi AC forums,

    I am seriously thinking about rooting and putting some custom roms on my DINC. I have a few ROMs in mind and I was wondering if you guys could give me your thoughts on them and then anything I would have to install once I got the ROM installed, i.e. gapps, camera app for CM7, etc.

    Here is the list of ROMs I am thinking about.

    CM 7.0.3
    Skyraider 4.2
    KINgDoM REwInD 3D

    and some other Sense 3.0 and 3.0/2.1 ROMs

    Thanks,
    arran1

    The first 2 are good stable ROMs. I have not played with Rewind myself so I can't vouch for it personally.

    You will have to load the GAPPS on CM7, as you would with any AOSP ROM. Skyraider already has them.

    Be sure you read the OP's of the individual ROM carefully before flashing for any ROM specific instructions.

    Happy Flashing.

    Lots of AOSP love going on around here (I still need to take the leap and try out CM7)

    But from another point of view, it depends on if you are a fan of Sense. I have been using Skyraider for a while now and love it. Great ROM, stable, with a hint of CM7 goodness thrown in for good measure.

    As everyone says, nandroid and try them all.

    Like you and others have said nandroids are your friend, so defiantly backup your current ROM and give CM7 a shot.

    And yes I suppose your take on ROM('s) you prefer depends on weather you're a fan of Sense or not. Personally I hate Sense (and custom UI's in general) so vanilla is defiantly my preferred flavor of Android, and no one does AOSP better then Cyanogenmod.

    I am a big fan of Sense. But AOSP isn't bad. So I am willing to try it. And I've heard CM7 is one of the best, if not the best.

    Nandroiding a lot was/is what I am going to do, I just wanted to hear everyone's opinions on these different ROMs.

    Again, thanks to all of you!


    And for you Skyraider fans, do you think there will be an update to it that will make it have the Sense 3.0 lockscreen? Or is there a MOD for that? That is one thing I would like.

    Defiantly go with the nightlies. They are just as stable as 7.0.3 and have a lot of bug fixes that the "stable" version doesn't have.

    The chef for Skyraider, Ihtfp69, has left the XDA community and started back up on a smaller forum site: Team BAMF Forums - Home

    Skyraider is currently on version 4.2, but 4.3 is in the works. Here is all that I could find at the moment about the changes/update for 4.3:

    Nope. Incredikernel is an AOSP (Android Open Source Project) kernel, and Skyraider is Sense based, which means you can only use Sense kernels.

    I think Chad does make a Sense kernel, but it's like a year old with no updates. I tried it on a few sense roms and it was horrible.
