    Is anyone using the Vicious JB 4.1.1 V1 ROM? Haven't seen any comments on it yet. Was thinling of trying it to see if it's any better than Bugless. Thoughts?

    Why are you joking? That's how we test ROMs.

    I know but some people are scared to flash new things that haven't been done before (understandably). Didn't wanna sound like I was forcing him

    I was on vicious right when the 4.1 GSM port first hit... it was awesome at first then it got some quirky issues after a few days, nothing major though and totally understandable considering what it was. I'm sure the AOSP Vicious is going to be much better.

    I would try but i've been flashing 2+ JB roms a day for the past week and I need a break i'm done fiddling with my phone for a few days i'm going to let it rest. Let us know how it goes :)

    I've been running it for a couple of days. It's very smooth and fluid. I haven't run into any bugs yet. I don't have the youtube volume force close I've heard about in other roms. I'll be sticking with this rom until AOKP releases their JB rom.

    I used it for a couple days but had a couple episodes where instead of waking from sleep mode, it seemed the phone had comletely powered off and Id have to turn it back on/ reboot to use it again. Don't know if anyone else has seen this. I guess there's always the remote possiblity that i was puttuing pressure on the power button in my pocket and powering it off but I never saw this with other roms before.

    Switched from Jelly Belly 3.4 to Vicious yesterday. Seems smoother...auto-updates all apps. So far, no flaws. Also, no separate gapps flash.

    I love the look and feel of JB 3.4, but there are still a few quirky issues I have ran into with it, particularly with widgets malfunctioning and my MMS reliably crashes and I have to reboot about once every two days. Its just those little kinks that haven't been worked out yet, you're saying Vicious is free of these issues?

    I have been running Vicious Roms since his first release of 4.1. I can not say enough about the quality and speed of his Roms. You will not find many revisions, like in some of the other JB Roms, since they are done right the first time. 4.1.1 has been very stable for me and many others. Paullie is a great addition to Team Liquid!

    Quick question. I'm on vicious 4.1. Can I buy clockworkmod premium and update it or can I just download the link on root wiki and install over top using clockwork mod?

    Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, I don't hang out in this forum much, generally over on RootzWiki. Yeah, I did a dirty install of 4.1.1 V1 over V5 and have not had any issues, however wipe data is the recommend way.

    Wait Vicious is made with the LiquidSmooth team? So technically this is the LiquidSmooth JB rom?

    I believe that this is not the LiquidSmooth JB Rom currently, it does not contain any of the LiquidSmooth enhancements from ICS. It may be the foundation for LiquidSmooth JB going foward. Currently it is a more or less stock build with 4 Way Reboot, GPS fix, some more minor tweaking, and Imoseyon's Jelly Bean Kernel. Again very stable.

    I might give this a try, this daily flashing of JB 3.1, 3.2, etc. etc. is getting ridiculous now.

    I've been using it since the aosp v4.1.1 v1 dropped. Extremely awesome. I did have a couple issues, all of which have been extinguished except one. The issues I know have been addressed are bluetooth cutting out from 2+feet and beyond, GPS lock rate, and MMS 160 char. The one I have yet to figure out (whether it works on ANY JB or not) and is MAJOR for me. I cannot get it to sync my exchange work email. I set it up as necessary, using the same credentials i've used a million times before. It shows set up successful. Then when I fire up the email app, it sits there "waiting to sync" and never gets past this.

    Looking into other JB roms to see if they're having the same issues. As much as I love this rom I may need to evaluate an other rom. I *NEED* my exchange email, considering I'm the network specialist at my place of employment. Not having access to email and calendar is not good.

    Has anyone gone from Bugless Beast to this? Any comparison?

    I've only had this rom and have been happy but I'm curious to hear what people have to say aswell and maybe I'll try it.
