    Seems to me that there are way too many places to look for roms and kernels. Can anyone list me the recommended roms for both GB and ICS? Also, when you flash a new kernel, what can you do with it? Or is it something that just is what it is when you flash it? Thanks for all that can help me here...

    For gb:
    Mikg3.11, Tommy evo classic, decks cm7 are the popular ones.

    Ics:
    Miui has been working wonderfully for me. There is a much smaller number of ics roms so I'd suggest trying them all out in your freetime

    Check out the all things Root Guide at the top of this forum and there is a list of ROMS there.

    The reason there are so many places is that there are so many roms. This is still an active community for a phone almost 2 years old. You also may need to join the XDA forum to be able to download the roms. There may also be some other forums that developers have set up that you may have to join as well.

    Good luck and happy flashing!

    As far as kernels, some custom kernels are already included in some roms but some are not. You don't have to flash kernels right away. I recommend you flash roms first and get a feel of what you need and research kernels before considering flashing them.

    If you are looking for something very similar to stock, try out clean rom 2, it's nice so far. :five:

    Here's some good information to help you understand what kernels are and what they do.

    I'm thinking about trying Tommy's Evo Classic mainly because I always see you recommend it, lol. What is the newest update and link for that ROM?

    I'm pretty much in agreement with Rx.

    Really the only ROMs I will ever run for more than a day or two are Deck's AOSP gingerbread 1.3d and MikG 3.11. With an honorable mention to Tommy's Evo Classic. That is definitely my top 3.

    ICS is cool, and I have given it some solid runs on my Evo, but it is definitely still lacking compared to how great the GB stuff is. But if you want to give it a whirl, I think Deck ICS, AOKP and MIUI ICS all bring something to the table. My preference is Deck since it seems to run super stable on my phone without any issues. Plus I have some brand loyalty to the guy and he does great work.

    His newest release is 0.0.9 which is another supermagic sneak peak. I'm on v 0.0.6 right now. Check out the thread here or his OP on xda

    The hwa miui.us release was murdering my battery life so I went back to old faithful for while like till the next release.

    I was looking and I did see that one 0.0.9. is it more stable than 0.0.6 or O_O? I'll give it a whirl when I get back to my dorm room.

    If tommy releases a ROM, its gonna be stable. He's a perfectionist:D

    V0.0.9 just includes more of the things that supermagic will have, like the classic control app that will let you customize damn near everything in the ROM.
