    I think it would be fun and a great idea to have a ROM vs ROM vote for each style of ROM. This areas to vote on should be like (1-10) on style, performance, customizing, ease of use, overclocking/underclocking, wow effect, battery, themes etc......

    I think the best person to create the voting catergories should be OCNBRZE. He has the most exposure to different Rooting than anyone I have seen.

    I think this will help people try different ROMs and know what to expect. I have tried many ROMs and did many different set ups, gotten them the way I want and back them up to use and reuse. I wish I knew going into it what to expect though, would have saved alot of time.

    Sample layout (vote 1-10):
    1. Style
    2. Performance
    3. Themes
    4. Overclocking/Underclocking
    5. Battery
    6. etc.....
    (use any categories but something like above. This will show diversity in the ROMs.)

    Maybe the developers will use our voting feedback to switch things around or improve their ROMs. We can vote to 1-10 and give optional details. Like Synergy RLS1 Godmode Overclocking/Underclocking I give it a 9 (details- using Chop Suey godmode gives me 1900-2000 quadrant scores)

    Use it as a sticky to continue the voting on new ROMs and old ROMs with updates.

    Thoughts or anyone agree??? :thinking:

    you know i was thinking about doing such a thing. but really anybody can create a thread for that. it really is not hard to do. but i have a lot of work in the next few days, but if nobody has started one, i will make one for this weekend.

    Okay I can start it and you review it for modifying. Do me a favor, what are all the categories we should use?

    1. Overclock/Underclock
    2. Performance
    3. Style
    4. Battery
    5. Customization

    (thats all I came up with. You I am sure know more.)

    I was thinking to have a basic format (blue print) where we can just plug the ROM name and info. Just reuse the blue print over and over.

    ROM NAME: Synergy RLS1 Godmode
    OS: Gingerbread 2.1
    1. Overclock/Underclock
    2. Performance
    3. Style
    4. Battery
    5. Customization
    6. etc......
    ...Overall Score= add the category total points/(divided by) number of categories= score. Ex: 7+2+4+7+7+5/6= 5.33

    The first post on the thread should be the blue print so people can copy and paste it to their reply and just fill in the blanks i was thinking.

    As far as battery life goes most sense ROMS are the same.

    Battery is more along the lines of Kernels than ROMS.

    i guess you can put in battery but there are a lot of variables that factor in battery life. your idea was a little more complex then what i was thinking, but if you can pull it off that would be awesome. i just had a thought of using another site to create the poll and then posting results here. but i do not have the time to research that. but, this is your baby, do what you think would be best.

    (ANYONE) What categories should we use?? What are the ones we all think are important in deciding ROMs??

    I have: Overclocking/Underclocking, Style, Performance, Customizing, Battery

    Delete any of my categories and add any that we should use.

    OCNBRZE, what website or how would you do that?
  8. Well, OC/UV'ing and Battery has more to do with finding a stable kernel than it does the ROM itself, so I'd say get that out of there. You might want something like "compatibility" so people know which ROMs have higher success rates when flashing in goodies and new kernels and such. You might be able to come up with a better category to file that under, just throwing in my 2 cents.

    The performance category is still great, as certain ROMs behave better than others, have more internal memory available when flashed and support a2sd and such.

    I think you're on the right track, might just need a bit of fine-tuning. :D

    I want to know about battery. Which ROM enables me the best kernel to save battery? I think that is a MAJOR part of choosing a ROM for a lot of people.

    I think Originality would have to be a category as well. I've seen several ROMS that look and feel a lot alike.

    I think we should add the weight of the ROM to the Category's . I have used a couple that if it were not for programs like as2d I could only have 10 or 15 apps before I ran out of memory.

    ROMS should give us what we need an not what we don't need or want. ROMs need to be less bloated and more on functional.

    Not every one is into the same things Themeing is more a personal thing. Doesn't really have anything to do with how the rom actually functions. It does make it look better and can make things more convenient, However they do not change the functions of the ROM.

    I think ones that offer you basic root functions like OC/UC moving apps to the SD card. Titanium Backup, and maybe even Script Manager or some other good Root Programs. Again the idea being nothing that takes ups a lot of space but gives you the perfomance you need and desire.

    I know OC/UC are more kernel issue but if a rom with its standard kernel offers this then it should be considered a rom feature

  11. You might even consider putting Sense and AOSP ROMs in two different categories when polling.

    my plan was to use rom categories like the rom and kernel download page. Asop, sense 3.0, etc....

    I like battery category as well. Theme is for the ability or option to modify not really stock theme. Like asop destroyerv2 is a 10 for theme customizing. I spent all day customizing. Synergy rls1 I gibe an 8. Kings rom r5 would get a 10. They come pretty stock but have many mod features.

    Kernels is important to add a category. Gingerbread has like 3 but asop has like 20. Again more ability to modify. Also how good are the kernel rom combo is important.

    Any feed back or add ons?

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    ok the issue i have with this is that battery and kernels go hand in hand. battery life will vary really on kernels then do roms. and it will depend on location, what your settings are, how strong your signal strength is. there are just too many variables with the category. and every phone is different. so i think that battery life should be left out. especially if we are talking about just roms. kernels maybe a different story. but even that will vary depending on how the phone reacts to. i think that this category will just give people the wrong idea of the rom.

    also over and underclocking will also depend on the kernel and not the rom.

    i think the performance, customization, and style would be the ones i would use to judge a rom.

    I agree with the battery life issue totally to many factors are included and its not really a ROM issue or Concern. I was really just saying what the ROM offers as is. With it's own stock kernel as far as what it offers program wise and all I guess what we mean is how it is "Out of the Box"

    My Thinking is this What features "Out of the Box" that make the ROM stand out.

    Performance, the Weight of the ROM, Ease of Use, What it offers (ie.. Does wifi work does 4g work etc)

    This is the started blue print......
    ....tweek it according to preferences and I will combine all feedback into a final approved blue print.

    ROM Operating System: (GINGERBREAD 2.3.3 + SENSE 2.1)
    Scores based on 1-10 scale
    1. Style (Look/Appearance) = 8
    2. Performance (Flow/Speed) = 9
    3. Customizing (Ability to modify/theme) = 9
    4. Compatibility (Add ons for kernels, etc) = 8
    5. Size (Memory usage) = 7
    6. Packaged Goodies (Stock apps and widgets) = 7
    TOTAL (total points/numb category) = 8

    thinking a bit more informative. Any one looking at this would have no idea of the ROM just that it was rated with decent numbers. Also point out who the dev is. Give credit to them and a link if possible.So going on what you started maybe something like this

    Team Synergy - DJZager, incubus26JC, Joelz9614, myn, Rafyvitto, suilmagic, WoZZer, Virus
    ROM Operating System: (GINGERBREAD 2.3.3 + SENSE 2.1)
    Scores based on 1-10 scale
    1. Style (Look/Appearance) = 8 - From the moment it boots up this feels great. Its sleek and comfortable. Not hard to look around. very appealing
    2. Performance (Flow/Speed) = 9 - no hangups, everything runs smoothly
    3. Customizing (Ability to modify/theme) = 9 - Lots of ways to customize this one to fit your personality.
    4. Compatibility (Add ons for kernels, etc) = 8 - Lots of addons
    5. Size (Memory usage) = 7 - A bit on the heavy side but still plenty of room for your apps
    6. Packaged Goodies (Stock apps and widgets) = 7 - Sense Clock, Wifi, 4G works, yada yada yada
    TOTAL (total points/numb category) = 8 - This is a very stable ROM which is very easy on the eyes. With good performance and its unending list of stock apps, and customizing ability's. Its a smart ROM to use as a daily.

    Anyway I think you get the point. This gives users much more understanding of the ROM and why the rating. Being a ROM VS ROM you would have to have it compete against another one so for instance:
    Synergy RLS1 Godmode vs MIKG3db1 and list for both ROMS Then at last do an overall analysis.

    EX; Synergy has all the bells and whistles while mik3db1 still has a few issues. Yada yada yada

    So that's my take. :cool:
