    Hey all, I'm updating my girlfriends incredible which she has (finally) agreed to put a custom rom on and tweak her phone a bit. Now I have never had this phone myself so I am not familiar with what is good and what is not, though I did put cyanogenmod on it a long time ago and she thought it was too "different". What are some good roms that add features without being too radical of a departure from stock to ease her in?

    Also, are there any decent ICS roms and do they run smoothly?

    Find a good sense rom, that will be most like stock. I don't use sense rom so I don't have a suggestion.

    I'm running CM9 right now and it's amazing. Very stable.

    If she actually uses the phone, then I would suggest against AOKP's ICS. I'm wiping it as I type this putting stock plus back on it. It was shiny and fun, but buggy as hell and not ready for prime time on my phone.

    Do you have MMS working? I've been running drk.hd's CM9 ROM for about two months, but am about to go back to CM7 or even stock because I'm getting tired of not being able to handle picture messages.

    If you got MMS working...how'd you do it? What ROM are you using?
