Comparing Roms - Scotts Clean vs Viper Rez vs Tonked BAMF
New and old android central users, I would like to share my experience with different roms that I have used. Feel free to add comments, experiences, and thoughts as well as anything related to Rezound roms. If you use a rom that I have not mentioned, feel free to add it to the thread, along with a list of Pros vs Cons. I hope this will help those who are wanting to know more about the various roms or who are interested in trying something new. If you have never rooted or unlocked a Rezound, I suggest reading through this thread [GUIDE] Guide to Unlocking & Rooting the HTC Rezound
Now to the roms I've tried.
Scotts Clean Rom - Standard Edition. I liked this Rom, used it for probably six months. Keeps the phone rooted while looking exactly like the stock version of a Rezound. Nice for people who like the HTC widgets.
Pros - Runs Sense 3.5
All of HTC widgets
A few extra custom skins
Keeps phone mostly stock
Cons - Not the best Rom for battery life
Uses a lot of your Ram
Viper Rez Rom - Probably the coolest Rom I've used. Only used this one for a week. Sense 4.0, awesome features like Home button flashlight and Status Bar brightness Adjust. However, my phone would not hold a charge with this Rom.
Pros - Sense 4.0
Cons - Could not charge my phone (had to power down my phone to charge)
Bad battery life
Tonked BAMF - This Rom is the Rom that I am curently using. It's great, it's fast, has awesome battery life. ICS dialer. I like the fine font it uses, takes advantage of the HD screen. It doesn't have the HTC widgets, and it doesn't run a lot of sense, it still has the Sense lock screen, which I love having. This is the Rom I am probably going to stay with until I'm eligible for upgrade in 9 months
Pros - Low memory usage / great battery life
Smooth and fast
Cons - No HTC widgets
Half baked Sense
If anyone has used any of these roms, I would love to hear about it.
Also, if you use a different rom, please share your experience.
