I need help here. I use a vibrant but I just got my girl a Nexus S......finally pried that F'n iPhone out of her hands. I put CM 7.0.3 Stable on there with netarchy 1.3.4 and it freezes occasionally and she hates the bland Nexus S messaging. Stability and appearance is higher priority than speed. What do you guys think?

For appearance, particularly if she finds stock Android bland, try MIUI Android (or MIUI US) as they both offer English translations of the Chinese overhauled rom MIUI. It will also feel at home for her, with elements of iOS there and it is much more polished (including the messaging app). If you want stability, use the RC versions (not the weekly betas). I use MIUI Android myself, and I think their stable is 2.3.4a or something, but I use the weeklies. Keep the stock kernel, or maybe try Jame Bond for CM7/MIUI/Any for stability. Also note that MIUI Android offers deodexed Chinese versions, so you must flash the miuiandroid-ns_1.7.22.zip (or similar) first, then the ENPACK one (English pack or something).

That's about it for appearance, stability only I recommend Oxygen by Adam Green except its very much stock looks. I highly recommend you let her try MIUI though. Remember to wipe everything before switching roms, I'm sure you know about that. If needed use Titanium Backup to save your apps (seeing as you're already on CM7) and then restore them in MIUI, just remember only backup and restore user apps, not system.

Good luck, just ask here if you need more help :)

Edit: Damn, beaten to it ;) can't type fast on my Nexus :p
Thanks guys. I just need to pry it out of her hands for a few hours. Should have menrioned that Im very comfortable with flashing ROMS and kernels so this is exactly what I needed to get rolling. Thanks for the fast response too.
