    hey max,

    only posting this question here as the tab site seems to get less traffic. Are there any new ICS roms out for the 10.1 tabs you’d recommend ?

    Can you review BAMF Paradigm for verizon Gnex and Droid Junk rom? Also, what does zipalign apk and sd boost do in start up tweaks? Thank you. I really like enjoy your reviews of these roms. Allows me to see what i will be getting before a flash.

    Been on Android since Nexus One, but never rooted my phone ever. Although doing a bit of research online I ended up rooting my Galaxy Nexus for the first time with this Custom ROM and I gotta say it completely changed my perspective about rooting. Visible difference in the performance and battery from Stock version made me a believer.

    Would recommend you guys to flash the franco kernel with this Rom as well.

    Thanks for the amazing user friendly videos, keep up the good job!

    I did the AnTuTu benchmark with the xenon and the aokp and with the xenon (1200MHz) i managed to get around 4980 points but with the aokp (1200MHz) i got over 6000 points:/ aokp had issues with losing signal though so i’ll keep this rom for a few days at least and see how it works in terms of battery life and signal. It’s looking good so far and i dont think the benchmark is really an accurate representation of the everyday performance such as smoothness and webpage loading speed etc.

    Play Store was missing and I had to download the APK.

      Oops, didn’t read the above for the Google apk set 😉

      Been using XENON all day today. I haven’t measured performance yet, but I can perceive that its faster than stock. It generally takes about a 20% improvement before a user will notice it. Will let you know how the battery life fares. With stock, I get the standard 4 hours of heavy use per charge and the screen on full bright.
