Default Recommended ROMs?

Anyone have recommended ROMs that I try? Please state if they are a stock Android experience or if they're using a custom UI. I'm open to both.

Cat,

What do you love the most? I have wicked wifi issues sometimes and Taboonay seems to be the user choice for this (I am on Taboonay and like it but have flicker issues and wifi problems so before I made the leap, I was hoping to get some insight from a current user).

Thanks!

I haven't had any issues with it. He did Tweak the wifi from 14.1 to 14.2 to save battery....so maybe go 14.1 first.


It is smooth and Pretty much Bug Free. I do get Freezes on Torrent dl's but that was happening on all the 3.2 ROMS.

TIP - Don't restore with Titanium backup going from Taboony to Thor. Restore the app from the Market THEN the Data from TB - this is an ASUS based Rom so it gets a bit Finicky.

I've been using Honeylicious 3.2 for only a day however its pretty much stock with no fluff or wifi drops. The ICS theme is slick as well. :-)

Just a quick update, Honeylicious 3.2 was on for about 4 days and there was absolutely nothing wrong with it. Never had wifi drop or FC of any type. I do want to try other ROMs just to see if anything else is as good or better. I'm trying Thor 14.2 atm and the built-in ICS theme is excellent, only been a few hours and I've restored all my apps and games. Very smooth so far, so much talent out there, you devs are fantastic. :-)

I'm using Thor 14.2 and it's the smoothest rom I've used so far. The one problem I have with it is the built in ad blocking is causing problems with hulu, both web based and with the app.

Yeah I just switched from that one. It is real stable. A very nice rom.
He is working on the ICS for the Acer at the moment and still making
some good progress.I just like switching every few days to play around.

Saw this on Thor's site this morning. Hope it helps.

Using Thor 14.2, just rooted and installed in the wee hours of this morning. It installs clocked to 1200mhz default and 216 at idle, and the performance is much smoother when loading apps or moving through the screens. There's a bit higher battery drain but it's not terrible.
