    Hey. What is the best ROM? I like sense and would rather not get rid of it. But, I'm most interested in speed.

    Thanks guys

    If you want to stay with a sense rom I would recommend Liberated 2.2.2, I've been using it for a while and everything works like it's supposed to.

    I tried that rom. Do you have major keyboard lag in that rom, or was that just me?

    Go to the HTC aria section in xda

    Under development there is a android 4.0.4 port by munjeni that almost has zero lag.

    I'm using it right now

    Cyanogenmod 9 (ice cram sandwich aka android 4) is by far the best rom ive ever used. Easy to use, great graphic display, its super fast, no lag or bugs(that i experienced) id highly suggest it

    Wantabe:
    With the Liberated ROM, do you still get all the functionality of the original 2.2.2 as far as customizing the wall papers and such? Do you gain more space with all the AT&T bloat removed? What all is left from the original ROM? also, any issues you have had would be nice to know going in.

    CPU2 and sgirard1991:
    On the ICS release for this ROM, what do the screens look like? Do you still have the big phone button on the bottom?

    I'm asking as I'm new to ROM's on droid. Went back to my Aria because Focus Flash running win7.5 locked up more than any other release of windows.

    Some links to the ROM'S would be nice too.

    Thanks again

    With any custom rom you will get much more customization features. I will go grab the link to the ics rom and try to find a few screenshots(if i still have them)
    Unfortunately i cant use my aria anymore so i cant just get on there and take some.

    Check out this page. It says liberty, but if you didnt already know, liberty is a second name for the htc aria.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1588599

    They have screenshots, along with download links and instructions to install.

    Also youre going to want to get a copy of gapps and flash that over as well, since theyre not included in the rom itself due to google owning them, legal issues bla bla bla

    To be honest I had absolutely no problems with Liberated 2.2.2, everything worked and you gain sideloading, usb/wifi tethering and trackpad wake (which I really, really miss now), you lose absolutely no functionality over stock! I was also using SetCpu with this rom to overclock to I think 768mhz or 806mhz, I would change it back and forth. Yes, you do gain more space but gaining space in the internal storage really does not do you any good as far as having room to download apps. You can put apps into system/app with root explorer to take advantage of some of that space, I did. Get a good class 10 memory card. "What all is left from the original ROM?" Liberated 2.2.2 is basically a cleaned-up (de-bloated), tweaked version of the stock rom. Issues? I had none, zero! Seriously! If you decide to give it a try and have any questions let me know!

    Thanks guys. So which version of the ICS, new or old?
    Also, is the original link to Liberated 2.2.2 for the most stable version?
    I see the google apps link, but do you need the *.git files too?

    Really appreciate the help. The ICS release looks pretty cool.

    Also, whats you do the ROM install, do you remove the .zip file when your done?

    Will down load ROM tomorrow and install, just have to decide which one.......
    Maybe both?

    Get the newest vesion on there. And gapps should be a zip file just like the rom, and u flash gapps using the same process thru clockworkmod recovey(just obviously skip the wipe/factory reset step or u will remove the rom)

    And yes, if u want u can delete the zip. Personally i like to hang onto all those kinds of files just in case i run into any problems so i can quick re-flash it.

    And give em both a try, mess around with them and figure out which one best suits ur needs/wants.

    Xda-develope forums & theunlockr.com have very nice guides on how to flash everything, along with what precautions u should take, etc.
    Just remember, before flashing a new rom, always always always make a backup of what u have now, just incase.

    U do have a custom recovery, correct?
    If not then step one before u do anything else would be head over to xda-developers and check out the thread on how to install clockworkmod recovery.

    Works great and fast too. Do notifications appear on the mail icons when new mail or messages come in?
    Just working through all of the menus finding where everything is hiding.
    Think I'm sold in ICS....
    Know if a Chrome port is out there for this yet?

    On the Gapps, what all is supposed to be installed?
    I am able to get to all of my google apps fine.

    Had to get the voice mail number to get that working.

    Everything is very quick. I like how it reports HSPA network and not 3g.

    Best ROM so far for me.

    OK, I'll look, but I didn't see books or map. I did get Google drive which is perfect as my company uses Google apps.

    Books and maps u can just go get from the play store. Personally i dont have them, the only gapps i use is the store and gmail. But theyre all available in the market.
