The best firmware according to the members of the forum

Overview of firmware and recommendations from our members of the forum
Options for custom firmware.
1. CyanogenMod firmware (or CM for short)

CyanogenMod is pure Android without adding chips from the manufacturer, a huge team of people are working on creating the basis of these firmware. According to statistics all over the world, more than 4.8 million phones cost exactly CM firmware. CM firmware is usually focused on reliability and performance. You can read more
Video review.

2. Firmware based on stock.

The point of creating such firmware in increasing the performance of phones while retaining all the manufacturer's chips. And again, you get the opportunity to choose which software from the manufacturer to keep and which to remove. As a rule, only such firmware appears in the first months after the phone enters the market.

3. MIUI firmware.

MIUI is a highly modified android, sometimes reminiscent of iOS. Most of the MIUI firmware is based on CyanogenMod and is released almost immediately after the official release of it. The main task of MIUI is to simplify the management of the phone and at the same time add to the interface of beauty and the ability to change the appearance in the root. You can read moreHere. Video review.

4. Android Open Kang Project (or AOKP)

AOKP firmware is very similar to CM, however, it is considered that AOKP has more settings that change the phone's interface and some functionality. The AOKP development team is much smaller than the CM, but it often happens that a group of like-minded people gather to support the popular AOKP device with the AOKP firmware.

5. Android Open Source Project (or AOSP)

By and large, AOSP is a bare android. The way it is released by Google, most often in such firmware minimal interface changes. Often, the creators of the firmware indicate in the name of their firmware "based on AOSP", that is, at the heart of the firmware is a naked Android.

- What is odex / deodex firmware, what is the difference and how does it work?
Stock firmware - odex, custom - deodex. In odex, system files for apk are bundled with the same name files with the odex extension.
Deodeksatsiya no way slows down the system, as when you first start the device are in the process of creating .odex-files (apk.classes-dex) for all applications in the Dalvik cache, where they are then read during system operation. Therefore, only when deodeksirovannaya firmware running slower than odeksirovannaya - at the first start of the system after cleaning or EEPROM Dalvik cache. But there are advantages - space-saving in the folder / system and the possibility of modifying painless ... (sergmarin)
The presence of .jar files instead of .odex / .deodex is a sign of deodexed firmware.

guys I do not know how is it that you have a number of place names

you what is written? The solution found problems? Or you know what we are doing wrong?

Rep: (16)
As I wrote:

With the contacts I have solved the problem of removing the system / csc / feature.xml if there is (1.0.1), everything in other.xml, on 1.0.2 now again all in feature.xml.
So now on 1.0.1 because koordinalno differences between the versions as I understand it, no!

All who put Wanam Xposed after there is a problem with contacts, because He makes new feature.xml and other.xml, but you can put everything in it, apply, and then delete it and delete the file and return to the old feature.xml other.xml (if it has become .bak) and to all the rules.

Qaraqumus pay attention to feature.xml ....... problem in it !!! He sometimes than any conflict! Apparently the line which it is necessary to remove it, but what is not yet understood!

P.s. People who OTA updated and perenakatil contacts tried to reboot? Do they fly off again, because I rebooted after they flew.

Updated QS-i9300-XXUGMK6-v1.0.2 top 1.0.1 phone after reboot disappear from the desktop widgets.

Solved this problem, a full wipe and scratch set QS-i9300-XXUGMK6-v1.0.2. The problem was most likely the fact that before the update was TouchWiz from SGS3, and QS-i9300-XXUGMK6-v1.0.2 TouchWiz SGS4.

There is another problem, is not displayed when the phone is weather setting in the docking station (clock desk clock settings at the tapas on a weather app crashes "application clock stopped")
