    I've been using CM10 on my EVO. It's currently at 4.1 for that phone, but man is it smooth.

    However, I will hold off on rooting because outside of new battery kernels, I think the Nexus will do a lot of what I want out of the box. If/when I decide to throw a ROM on, Cyanogen will be my first stop.

    For me there's more to being rooted than just putting ROMS on, Titanium Backup and NANDROIDS for one, wait that's 2.

    Yeah, and I forgot that unlocking the booloader wipes your phone, so I will root out of the box.

    I unlocked out the box then waited for a) easy rooting and b) TWRP for my recovery ;)

    So what's running better at the moment. This or AOKP?

    Since AOKP is based off Cyanogenmod and Cyanogenmod is still in nightly builds CM SHOULD be more stable as AOKP is alpha code based off alpha code. This is just speculation though. I'll be able to test this in the next couple days.

    I ran into issues with this ROM. I don't know if it was the ROM or what but MANY of my applications couldn't be restored through TiBu (they would freeze the restore process) and the same applications came up showed in Google Play as not being applicable for my phone. They were installed before the flash. Most of these are mainstream applications like eBuddy, DoubleTwist, Underground Weather, etc... Due to this I had to revert back to restore my nandroid.

    As I said this is an Alpha build. I haven't been able to test it since my phone is arriving tomorrow. I imagine in as little as a week this ROM will make leaps and bounds.

    Looks like I'm going to be going to CM again soon. I like the expanded desktop feature especially. Plus there are a couple other things I miss from CM10.

    What is this expanded desktop feature all about? I gather it simply expands to hide the status bar and nav buttons but why is it useful?

    There is an option in the power menu (the one that pops up when you long press the power button) that you can change to extended desktop which hides the nav buttons. That way you don't have to look at them while you are playing a game like Grand Theft Auto or Dead Trigger (just the ones that pop into my head first) that don't auto hide them while playing.

    Thanks. That's what I thought it was for but I didn't want to make assumptions.

    Has anyone tested out this ROM yet? What bugs are present?

    If you give it a try be sure to write up a little review. I'm perfectly content with stock 4.2.1 at the moment, but my old chronic flashing habits are starting to claw at me. That and pure Cyanogenmod has always been my favorite.

    Same here. I'm not quite ready to flash a new ROM, but I want to follow CM development because when I am ready that is what I will be flashing.

    The rom is pretty smooth/fast. I had some strange wifi issues. Not sure if it was kernel related but it was enough for me to jump ship for a bit.

    Back on AOKP and no problems.

    I took the plunge and installed the 12/28 nightly with Franco's latest kernel last night. I'll report back after a day or so of usage.

    Look forward to hearing about it. I'm a recovering flashaholic so my Nexus is stock at the moment. I love it but I do miss CM. I told myself I was going to wait till a "stable" build was released. But yea I'm curious about battery life, over/under clocking cpu, etc. Overall feel as compared to stock. Thanks!
