    Default Solid TW Roms?

    Hi All,

    As much as I absolutely love and generally prefer CM (and other AOSP) roms, the reception issues inherent to those have become intolerable. I know that a few of these discussions have popped up in the past, but seeing how quickly the development scene moves along for Android, I thought it'd be interesting to get some new input. What are some of the best TW based roms, in terms of battery life, performance, etc.? My particular preference is bloat-free - but I'd be interested in hearing your perspectives either way. I used to use Blazer Rom several months back, but it seems that Rom has been abandoned. What stable, supported TW Roms are you guys using these days?

    I am a fan of Wicked Sensation v3.1. It is solid, fast and great battery life. With lots of options for mods. Goodness Reborn is also a good ROM. My other half runs it on her phone and is quite happy with it. But there are lots of other good TW based ROMS.

    Wicked Sensations and MOAR (Mother of All ROMS) both have strong followings and very good reputations. There are threads about both here, and on XDA.

    I would suggest wicked sensations if you are going to stick with a TW rom

    Odexed rooted mc3. Best signal and battery without tweaks imo. Just disable all the bloat.

    Would you happen to have a link to Cleanbean? For some reason, my google skills are failing me on that one.

    Edit: Nevermind, found it!

    P.S. I'm surprised you haven't seen signal issues. You're on a Sprint GS3? I get around -105dBm on CM10.1 (even in strong areas like NYC). If I go back to TW, it boosts significantly.

    OK... a couple questions to qualify this:
    * Are you on the latest CM10.1 (3.4.37, android 4.2.2)?
    * Are you using a custom modem, or did you simply flash from stock to CM?
    Are you using any specific modem

    I don't get the signal issue. I'm on AOSP ROM (Deviant Xone) and I see awesome reception in areas that I know I should.

    I've tried a few AOSP ROMs, not 1 of them is 100% daily driver material Imo.
    I'm on The Peoples ROM, solid solid experience for past 7 or so months.

    If you are still looking you should check out MSG Chubbz from Team Nocturnal! I have bounced around from rom to rom looking for something solid. I haven't had any problems and they just released an update. It keeps getting better.

    It is a very good ROM. When I wanna change of pace from Wicked, its the first ROM I turn to.
