    I have been a loyal Cyanogenmod fan for a long time, but they have discontinued providing updates for my phone (still using a DROID1), so I am downloading Simply Stunning by ChevyNo1 as I type this.

    I know you leet skiddies are modding the phuck out of your fones. What Adroid ROMs do you use?

    Are you sure they're not supporting the first Droid anymore? It's still on their devices list.

    I've been using CM on my Defy ever since I got it.

    No not AFAIK. I heard my phone was being discontinued in a blog post they made somewhere. The way it sounded tho that was the only phone being dropped, as they specifically pointed out that DROID owners time has come to upgrade.

    Android phones are allot of fun to smash
    i thought modding would be fun, but eh, the only thing i want to do is play games that don't bore me, that used buttons but then you find with most phones these days having no buttons, they will always be incapable of emulating videogames practically.
    why can't there be a port of Diablo for Android? it has not been done yet outside of PSX emulation, but who wants that? the PC version is played mostly with mouse clicks it is perfect for a touch screen phone.

    I ended up trashing Simply Stunning and restoring my backup back to Cyanogenmod7. SS is built on top of CM7, but it just didn't seem to work for me. I might try something different when I get my next phone (Droid RAZR).

    Sorry for the necromancy, but I´ve adquired a Samsung Galaxy S3 and I´m searching the best working ROM for that device. I think this thread can still be useful. So what are you using for your smartphones?

    Galaxy Nexus running AOKP 4.1.2

    Issues with Bluetooth dropping out like a whore. Flashed & upgraded over the weekend, now com.android.phone process crashes at least once per hour when listening to podcasts in the car.

    Cynanogen is great. I can't use it due to a faggotty bluetooth unit in my car not playing nicely with passcodes or some shit, but if you can use it, then fucking do it.

    if you get "process xxxx has stopped working" (like I did) go back into CW, wipe system & reflash. Fixed it for me.

    any of you lot recommend anything for a sony xperia U? just got one and whilst I do like the stock ICS rom, I'd like to be able to fiddle with the LED bar settings and of course, squeeze a little bit more out of the processor.

    I recommend smashing it with a hammer, urinating on it, lighting it on fire, and shoving the flaming lump up your father in law's anus.

    What do you think about that other ROM, the MIUI? Do you trust chinese hackers?
