PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This past week and this weekend I've finally found the time to enter into the colorful world of custom Android ROMs. After figuring out just how insanely great and awesome ClockWorkMod Recovery is, I set about to figure out what the best Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is for the Galaxy SII. While the answer to that question became clear quite quickly, this answer also gave rise to a whole bunch of other questions.

I ran off the experimental builds from December.

Video playback/capture crashed, GPS didn't work, there were only basic settings you could set. (Rotate didn't make it to the launcher till march.) I had hell with cell drop outs that required a reboot every few hours to restore.

It 'worked' but only if you could handle a heap of things not working. I went from stock to cm7 to cm9 and I couldn't go back after installing these builds.

By Feb pretty much everything was perfect for daily use and I've been on the same ROM since the start of March.

I will buy my next phone from any company that has the insight to roll with cyanogenmod. I thought Samsung would be close after hiring cyanogen but I guess I shouldn't hold my breath.
