Anybody else using a Custom ROM?

I'm running the latest lite'ning ROM (v5.0) and am just wondering if anyone else is using anything else? If so, what do you think of it?

Yes, would be interested, too.
I found lite'ning ROM 5 okay. Battery life was definitely improved. I like the integrated screenshot feature. But the one thing that bugged me was the keypad - when I had to bring it up while in a call there was a marked delay of a couple of seconds. On occasion I missed entering a code on time and I'd have to start all over. Otherwise no complaints.
But I was curious about other ROMs, too...

Cant say I've experienced that same problem.

I tend to get this problem with the four main icons on the home screen. When I try to switch the contacts icon to anything else (e.g. email) after a while it deletes the icon so there are only three on display. I am then left to manually re-add the contacts icon. If I were to re-add the email icon it would simply remove it again (as before). :3

weird... never noticed, but I installed Launcher Pro straightaway...

I'm sticking with GO Launcher, its just a shame they dont have more widgets.

I don't like widgets :P

Wow, so much faster! 8)

Faster than 5? Whoa!
What about bugs?

shuwaz  Aug. 19, 2011 at 16:40

Yes I definitely noticed an improvement.
Battery seems to be doing better as well.
No bugs so far.

Wow! they just keep on coming. I wonder if there is another ROM which is better than the Lite'ning series?

have they fixed the GPS issue on Lightening ROM? I had to change ROM as my GPS was not locking on satellites no matter how clear the sky was.

Even if they haven't, there's a GPS fix available for the S2 off XDA.
