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 think the problem is the XDA-developers forum. The forum software is awful and there is no way to filter the wheat from the chaff. The signal-to-noise ratio is appalling.

Hell yes, agreed. The XDA forums are chock full of useful information, but loads of people spam the boards with inaccurate nonsense or plain rudeness. Very unproductive.

I agree. There's a lot of how-to threads, but the first posts don't always get updated, which means slogging through 11+ pages of "doesn't work; try this; hmm, try this; okay this works; update, now it doesn't work; etc" trying to find the current steps that actually work.

There's almost too much information in xda-forums. They really need to separate the forums into "how-tos that are kept current", "discussion threads about the how-tos", and then everything else. Having it all mixed together like it is now is doing more harm than good. ;)
