This is an open discussion thread about what you like, or wish you had in a ROM.
The goal of this is to let developers know what things are a popular style, and also to let others share what ROM works best for them if someone has a similar style they like.
I'll start off with an example:

Device: Incredible

Style im liking: 100% AOSP stock. No bloat torch app or extra settings menu's, no theme work. Also, the Nexus S boot animation and splash screen. Similar to the old Sapphire ROM series.

What im using: Custom OMGB build, with Nexus S splash screen.

100% AOSP, which I'm patiently waiting for on my Thunderbolt.

I just strongly dislike knowing there's anything on top of my install of Android that could possibly slow it down or cause worse battery drain than there already is. When I buy a new phone now, I buy almost exclusively on design and hardware specs knowing that I'll soon be ripping the software off of it and installing another ROM.

100% AOSP, but i dont mind using a couple blur APP's like the camera. And a couple of the widgets.

other than that CM7 has everything i like. But i am on the Droid X. So iv been pretty happy with all the Rubix features. Kinda sad to leave it for GB. But Im running Liberty .06 GB right now and i love it.

But i will be moving to the TBolt sometime very soon.

AOSP rom with simple features (Battery percent, notication pull down widgets, black background mms app are mainly it)
Plan on making this when the LTE RIL code is cleaned up and released


What I'm running: CM7

Pretty much AOSP with power control widgets in dropdown. Not much into themes as I stick with pretty much dark/black backgrounds. I'm more into function over form, though I do like some of the Sense touches.

Currently running Das Bamf 1.7 with LauncherPro Plus. Would be running CM7 if Skype video worked on it.

Aosp with extra features. Something that is important to me is that you can always turn off non stock features that change ui etc so that you can have something relatively stock with all extra features off or turn on features to add usability for you as an individual.

I hate aosp, it's ugly, and no dev ever does anything with it, they just throw it in there as if it's ready to go, but it it's not. but no dev is gonna listen to that, because all of those n00bs^^^ think aosp is super jesus cakes. moving on:

i like want a collection of features from all versions of the device onto the most stable version i.e. gb for droid x, putting the new blur home into froyo, because froyo doesn't screw your device up

I feel this only applies to AOSP camera and AOSP MMS. Stock Gingerbread looks pretty good imo.

hmmm, i see where you are coming from, but ive personally NEVER seen 100% aosp for my inc, and i know that is true for multiple devices. CM and OMFGB are great aosp roms with loads of features. But hey, its an opinion post
. And i love your idea of a collection of features on one rom. bringing the best of everything together, kinda like those dream devices we all have

I use CM7. My dream ROM would be(I know its almost impossible!) Sense 3.0 with all CM7 features. I'd love to have the style of Sense with the functionality and speed of CM7.
