    Hey everyone,
    First time poster/rooter/flasher here. I successfully rooted my phone this afternoon, and I'm wanting to flash to a gingerbread ROM. I'm looking for the best 1-2 punch for rom/kernel to do so. I'm looking for a stable build and I think I've decided to use CM7 (thanks to reading all the threads) but I'm clueless as to which kernel to use. Any suggestions? and why?

    Thanks!

    Cm7 ran smoothly right after I flashed it. But I did have to do the infamous GPS fix. Other than that, it runs fine and fast with the kernel it came with.

    MIUI 1.4.8 Gingerbread works fine for me, flashed it last night and haven't had any issues (knock on wood). GPS works, supposedly bluetooth works (haven't tried yet) and runs smoooooooooooth.

    MIUI rom comes with everything you need, kernal (unless you want to flash another), sms programs, sprint apps gone, etc. I've been an MIUI user since I rooted a while ago, sense annoys me now that I don't think I could ever go back.

    Noobie here...but a quick learner! Can you help me out here?
    What exactly does ASOP stand for? What does Sense mean? What is the difference between a Sense and ASOP Rom?
    Do you know which kind MikFroYo is?
    Thanks for any help you can give!

    CM7, MIUI, and other AOSP-based custom ROMs have issues with GPS when you first flash it. But there's a fix for it that involves flashing back to a Sense-based ROM, flushing A-GPS data, having the phone relock with the satellites, and then flashing back to the AOSP ROM.

    I was reading the CM7 github notes, and they had marked that as a blocker bug for v7.0.0 stable. I'm still running release candidate 4, so I'm not sure if it got fixed, or if they deprioritized the bug... Technically, blocker means the release can't go live until it's fixed, but stable 7.0.0 is out, so.... too lazy to check the release notes at the moment.
