So I have pretty much run all the major AOSP ROMS out there besides Liquid...(so I have ran: ShiftAOSP, OMFGB, CM7)...So far Shift has been the smoothest and most reliable, but updates are kind of slow right now...what do you guys think I should try (something that's new and updated)? I hope they get MIUI on the Thunderbolt to try something new.

I've been on CM7 for a while and its been great. Why not just use what's best for you? Why do you need constant updates? Not being rude just curious?

I'm sorry I didn't mean constant updates just a ROM that has been recently updated. CM7 is what I am on now and the lockscreen is pretty sluggish (using widgetlocker). Also seem to have a lot of keyboard problems, but maybe that is unrelated to CM7

Lockscreen lag will go away with auto-brightness turned off.

Theory said Shift will be updated this weekend & I think Omfgb nightly are back up... Maybe. I only tried it for a day & went back to shift but the 9/13 build is very fast and smooth.

+1 for BlackSourc3.

I love AOSP, but I've been sticking with Sense ROMs lately. The network-location/incompatible-apps bugs in AOSP are too frustrating.

It means Android Open Source Project - it's the most basic ROM you can find, which is actually a good thing. It's bare-bones - no HTC Sense, Moto Blur, Touch-Wiz to slow it down. It's how Google intended Android to run. Almost all AOSP ROMs are based off Cyanogen Mod, you can find more info here:

I have thought about trying a Sense ROM again as they do perform every task on the phone reliably, but im so used to the speed of AOSP, but I will have to try one out again

I am hooked on flashing roms and trying new stuff. However OMFGB has kept my attention for a while. Best aosp rom imho.

I'm used to it... I've owned a galaxy s phone. Amazing how normal android functions were never addressed by samsung

If you want to give AOSP a shot again, I recommend you just turn Wifi on, hide the wifi icon, and never turn it off. That will fix your network location problem.

However, I can't do anything about the incompatible apps issues (like NFL app). However, these are incredibly rare. But if you gotta have them, well, you gotta have them. :)

I really wonder what is causing this lag on some phones. Others (including myself) have had auto brightness on and experienced no lag. Yet many, have the lag issues. Makes me wonder if certain phones have different hardware. I wonder if there would be any correlation between lockscreen lag and manufacturing date.

I agree with icanhazdroid. If you want to try a sense ROM, BAMF Forever is very nice. Every once in a while I get bored (not with CM7) and try a sense ROM for a day, but I always end up going back to CM7 :) I also use tiamat's kernel with CM7.

I totally agree. Bamf forever is nice. I really like the lockscreen, the camera, and the general aesthetics, but after the speed and options from CM7, it's really hard to stay with sense.

My speculation/guess is that when the phone is turned back on, there's a certain value that the brightness gets set to and then the clock starts ticking before the auto-brightness timer event is thrown for the first time, at which point it will adjust the screen according to the surrounding environment's light. I suspect there is a bug in our TBolt-specific AOSP-based code that doesn't manually fire that first "AutoBrightness" event but lets time fire it off for us. You know how CM7 has some setting to specify the sampling rate? I bet if you decrease this to an insanely small rate, that this delay practically goes away.

Then again, I could be wrong.
