    It"s been my experience that Unofficial builds are better. They seem to be updated more often and the devs seem to give more attention to their builds

    I actually agree with this. It's not just a new nightly that's spat out. More detail is given to the builds.

    Alex Cruz released another Dirty Unicorns 8.0 d2lte test build. Currently running it now and it seems quite stable. I had some problems with overheating with the last build. This one doesn't seem to have those problems. The OmniROM status/navigation bar dynamic color changer is awesome. It's awesome how this was ported to DU. I think I've gone back to DU as my daily driver. The link is under the Unofficial Builds section

    Don't forget about the ROM Settings Backup app. The link is under the AOSP d2lte Kernels section. I think it's a must have if you're using AOSP ROMs.

    With the ROM Settings Backup app and Titanium Backup l, it make installing a new ROM as easy and quick as possible. Completely hassle free. Checking out Alex Cruz"s build tomorrow morning.

    I agree. Both apps make it incredibly easy to install ROMs. To go through an the features and settings in Dirty Unicorns, it takes me 15-20 minutes to set my preferences, 12 being the fastest if I'm really pushing it. With the ROM Settings Backup app, just takes a couple taps on the screen, a reboot, and all my preferred settings/features are set. So easy. I wish I had this app for the past 5 or so years.

    On the latest omni, is anyone losing root? I'm not sure if its been mentioned but it's happened to me everytime I install it.

    I'm currently on the latest spirit rom and it's really smooth. The only issue I have is with youtube and the fact my battery is garbage, but I have a replacement coming in shortly.

    Also funny note about T-mobile, they finally started updating some of the towers in this area and the connection quality and speed is amazing.

    I, myself, am a big Dirty Unicorns fan. Currently on Alex Cruz's latest test build (10/14). It really is an amazing ROM. I started out on Spirit and really liked it, but after running Dirty Unicorns, it"s the only ROM i run now.

    I"m hoping Alex Cruz does a DU 8.1 build, which 8.1 willbe Dirty Unicorns last and final KitKat build. They will be focusing on Lollipop. The source will be released in the next week or two.

    I hope Alex Cruz makes an 8.1 build also. I'm currently using the 8.0 build and just flashed leankernel. It definitely sped up my GS3 a bit. Making it run smoother also.

    Joe Carbone no longer has a GS3. So, the chances of him making more d2lte builds are slim now. He is making Spirit ROM builds for the One M8.

    AICP is probably the closest ROM to Dirty Unicorns. I like the ROM a lot. And it also has the status bar dynamic color changer feature also. They release nightlies quite frequently.

    I may try leankernel. I tried dkp jernel when i first flashed Alex Cruz's 8.0 build, but phone kept rebooting.. i might give dkp another shot because i like the splash screen feature. You can use any image you want, so i can use ones i mafe on my thread.

    First of all, it comes with great sadness that I had to take Gummy ROM off the list. They lost funding for a host server and had to call it quits. It was one of my favorite ROMs. Will be missed.

    I added another ROM to the list. It's the Validus ROM. I've ran it for a bit. Seemed quite stable and smooth. Many features. The latest build came out a month ago, but has all the latest Android 4.4.4 features except for heads up notifications. If you use Xposed Frameworks and the Heads Up Notifications module, it'll give you heads up notifications. Ground Zero ROMs is working on a 6.2 build for Validus and a new ROM called Tesla ROM. The info for both will be on their Google+ Community Page. So, check it out if you're interested in either ROMs.

    I added the true Android Lollipop boot animation to the list. It's actually not much different from the Android L developer preview boot animation I had on the list. With the Lollipop boot animation, the orbs are larger and they move slower. Personally, I like the developer preview boot animation better. I left the link to that up there as well.

    I also added the apk file for the Lollipop keyboard. Again, it's not all that different from the Android L developer preview keyboard. There are more theme options and the UI is different. For those who want the Lollipop keyboard, I posted the link.

    I posted the link to all the Android 5.0 Lollipop apps. It's in the section with the Lollipop boot animation and keyboard. I couldn't get the Google Now Launcher to work. It actually won't work without the Android Lollipop Google Search app which is not on the list. I couldn't get the Android 5.0 calendar app to work as well. You might have better luck. The rest of the apps seem to work fine. I'm really enjoying the Android 5.0 Play Music app. The new design is sleek.

    Looks like I was wrong. Joe Carbone just released an unofficial DU 8.1 d2lte build. I thought he might be done with d2lte builds. It's in his Google+ page. The link is in the Unofficial Builds section. His builds are just as good as Alex Cruz's. I'm about to flash it. I saw that others said it works just fine.

    Yeah, I was half asleep also when I downloaded it. Probably wasn't fully awake when I flashed it. Seems to be running pretty smoothly. An unofficial LiquidSmooth 3.2 d2lte build was also released today. The link for that is in the Unofficial Builds section.

    I've heard about Cyanfox. So, if they come out with d2lte builds, then awesome.

    We now have a final release date for Android Lollipop: November 3rd! Hopefully, ROMs will be making d2lte builds soon after its release.

    Yrah, i know 8.1 is Dirty Unicorns final KitKat build before Lollipop. CyanFox was debating on whether or not to wair, but decided they had time for a KitKat build.

    Alright, I have quite a few additions to the list.

    I found a new ROM the other day. It's called BlissStalk ROM. It's a great and stable ROM. Many features to choose from. It's based on the BeanStalk ROM.. BeanStalk is one of my favorite ROMs, so it's great having another ROM based on it.

    I decided to add Quantum ROM to the list. I've been holding on to it for a while because it doesn't get updated often. It is a good ROM, no doubt about that. I generally only like to post ROMs that get regular updates but I figured since we're close to the release of Android 5.0, I'll add it to the list.

    I posted a bunch of unofficial builds to the list. As @dingermtb pointed out, Alex Cruz released a Dirty Unicorns 8.1 d2lte test build yesterday. Don't be worried about it being a 'test' build, Alex Cruz does amazing work. His builds will be very stable. Joe Carbone also released an unofficial DU 8.1 d2lte build. So, it's great having 2 devs keeping Dirty Unicorns alive for d2lte. Both unofficial DU builds are in the Unofficial Builds section of the list.

    I also posted Mastamoon's CM11 unofficial builds. He added some customizations above and below the surface. Graphene ROM is an unofficial Carbon ROM. I ran it for a couple hours. Seemed quite stable and smooth. If you're a fan of Carbon ROM, you'll like Graphene ROM. There are also an unofficial/semi-official AOKP d2lte ROM that just started yesterday. The good thing about this unofficial AOKP d2lte ROM is it's actually released as nightlies instead of making d2lte builds every now and then like the official AOKP ROM does. And lastly, an unofficial Mahdi ROM 2.8 d2lte build that was released yesterday. I'm currently running it now. What's nice about it is that ART runs as default. I'm noticing an improvement in my battery life. I'd suggest not flashing a custom kernel because the developer tweaked the Cyanogenmod kernel to run ART as default. Also, Xposed Frameworks isn't compatible with ART. So, if you use Xposed, it'll switch your GS3 to Dalvik. This is a very smooth ROM. Not having any problems with it. I always enjoy using new ROMs. Mahdi ROM doesn't support d2lte, so it's awesome having a dev make unofficial d2lte builds for us. All of these unofficial builds are posted in the Unofficial Builds section of the list.

    I found the links to the dkp and KTOONSEZ kernels. Been looking for the links for a while. I posted them in the AOSP d2lte Kernels section of the list.

    I think it just comes down to personal preference. I've been using the BMS kernel mostly. The dev does frequent updates with it.

    Just recently, I've been trying leankernel. I think it's sped up my phone quite a bit. But it's probably because the default Dalvik read ahead value is 2048. Generally, the higher the Dalvik read ahead value, the quicker an app will open and load.

    My phone doesn't like Deathly for some reason. Always overheats when I try it. Not saying it's not a good kernel.

    I usually use the smartmax or smartassV2 governor. But it's all relative to how you use your phone. I try to keep it underclocked.
