    im just learning about all this rooting and ROM stuff its not my first rooted.... my first droid phone witch was a droid incredible and i used the UNREVOKED software to root my phone and i rooted my galaxy s3 this morning so i can get superuser feature to use the tethering app like i did on my droid incredible...

    but i never messed around with putting a different ROM on and im a tech kinda guy and figuring out how to do these modes comes easy to me and i like how u are able to customize your phone so much more and get battery life with a different ROM...so wanted to get thoughts on witch one i should use??

    Honestly you should just try them all and make that decision. I'm on cyanogen 10 nightlies and even though they're a bit incomplete , I enjoy them

    CM10 is good, but i wouldn't recommend it to noobies at this time (not saying youre a nooby, but its not exceptionally polished right now)

    most of the TouchWiz based ROMs are quite good...im on SynergyROM and its brilliant!...Beans is also VERY VERY good

    Tell me a little about Beans, v.11 looks intriguing. I'm also running the Synergy nighlies with Imo's 0.5 kernel which is absolutely great..

    I saw the thread and read the OP a couple of times but I'm not getting the Aroma chooser thing. Do you install the rom and then choose what you want after the install or during it? I actually have everything working great now but I might want to play this weekend. I'm using TWRP btw again, 2.2.2 version by invisiblek.

    +1 for Synergy. I tried CM10, but didn't like the nonfunctional NFC and actually found that I like some of the TW enhancements (not the launcher though...easy fix with Apex).

    Aroma runs during the installation and allows you to choose which components you want. It's pretty slick.

    Just to clarify: Are the "TouchWiz based ROMs" just modified versions of the stock ROM? There are a few TouchWiz features I don't want to lose. Camera, Direct Call, etc.

    There are plenty of ports already out there...none of them work exceptionally well...the TW port from T-Mobile can't send texts for instance

    I'm sitting here, just woke up and my voice is still raspy... I read that and started laughing so hard it made me cough! Thanks, a good start to my day! :p
