    So, I'm just wondering the setup people are using on their phones.

    Currently, I'm running Paranoid Android Legacy d2lte Beta2 build with the BMS kernel. So far, so smooth. I like the integration of the Android L stack recent apps panel. I also have like 15 Xposed Frameworks modules running too. The Blurred System UI module let's you create the blurred notifications panel. You can choose whatever color you want. The Tinted Status Bar module allows to change the color of anything I'm the status bar. Plus, I'm also using Pie Control Pro, the1lucent icon pack, and Nue CM11 theme.

    What's running on your phone?

    I should say that this isn't for AOSP ROMs exclusively. Post your TouchWiz ROMs also. Just curious what people are running on their phones.

    CM11 is by far my favorite. A few days ago I installed Liquid Smooth because it runs on my Evo 3d so well. Probably going to play with this rom for a few weeks.

    I tried Liquid Smooth but couldn't get voicemail notifications to work or the visual voicemail app. Apart from that, I liked it. I'm just experimenting with Paranoid Android right now. And the BMS kernel is helping my phone run smoother.

    Voicemail is also a problem in CM11, have not even tried in LS yet. I used visual voicemail in CM and I got my messages most of the time.

    I don't think so. The developer is Ed Chen, aka GideonX. You can check out his stuff in Google+.

    How does Conquest compare to running stock TouchWiz? Is it kind of like the M.O.A.R. ROM?

    I like Conquest. With the aroma installer how it runs probably depends a lot on what you choose to install. Has seemed the best for functionality and stability.

    By default, Conquest is TouchWiz based but does away with most of the TouchWiz stuff in favor of AOSP or Google counterparts. If you prefer the TW apps, most of the removed components can be installed by electing to customize during installation. I've added a lot of stuff not present in stock TW as well. There is also theme support. End advertisement.

    Really though, it's best to have a quick look at the screenshots and change log if you wanna know how it stacks up to stock. Sorry I couldn't give a better comparison but I'm not familiar with M.O.A.R.

    M.O.A.R stood for Mother Of All ROMs. It was a TouchWiz ROM that let you customize anything and everything about it.

    Conquest looks sweet. I like the fusion between AOSP and TouchWiz. And don't worry about the advertisement. I think this thread is pretty much advertising ROMs.

    Viper4Android is amazing. I think it's the best audio mod for Android...if rooted, of course.

    What I do like about Liquid Smooth and Paranoid Android is how when adjusting the volume, it pops down from the status bar. Looks cool and it's out of the way.

    Yeah I don't think I have quite that much customization in Conquest but I do have a few treats coming up in the next release.
