    I rooted it a while back and installed mik3.0 which he loved for a while, but now he's bored and wants me to update him with some bling. I'm thinking a super stale ICS or CM9 rom with an OC kernel, something that will make him feel as though he's using one of the new EVOs. So I would like, and excuse me if it's been done to death, a rom, kernel, and theme suggestion. Also any apps that would shine tings up a bit. He's not to tech savvy so it shouldn't take much to impress him. Thanks in advance!

    Agreed. Hook him up with Deck's reloaded and mason.

    Or you could get real lazy and just throw on a new launcher :p

    Yeah, run Decks Reloaded w/Go Launcher.

    Then put an HTC One X theme (Free Go theme) and it will look like some of their new phones. You can even get the same clock (from another source/XDA)

    Deck's reloaded no contest. If he wants ICS, you should set him up on Strike. It's the fastest one I've ran to date.

    I actually ran CM7.2 just because I goofed up a nandroid of Deck's and I'm amazed at how much faster reloaded is.....not even close.
