I downloaded the 8-1 New_Leak (deodexed) when it first came out and have installed multiple patches and fixes for it along the way, added Hulu + flashplayer, removed all the bloatware and have the rom themed and overcoked the way I want getting 1445+ Quad scores. Now in the last week I have tried: Sky Raiders with Sense, Sky Raiders Vanillia, Franken Rom B5, and 1 other. All of these roms are great (props to the cooks) but they all do the same exact thing as what I have already...Except for Vanilla having a different look and being just that, Vanilla. Someone asked on another board why there are roms (like Frankenrom) with Evo framework, and the answer was it would run faster. Well after setting up Frankenrom B5 the same as I had my past rom my scores for Quad, Linpack, are the exact same, I don't see any difference in performance or anything. I guess these roms are great for someone just starting that doesn't feel like customizing the New_Leak on their own but I just wonder if the future is going to bring roms that really start standing out from one another and do something different than what we have already. BTW: This thread is not a knock on anyone or anything I have the greatest respect and apprecation for guys like Adrynalyne who have helped me more than once. This is more or less a question on where roms are now and what the future holds.
