    Like the header states what are everyone's thoughts/opinions between the two roms. I use mapping and gps daily for work and flash on the internet is a plus if that effects the decision at all. ;D

    2.3 was the peak of development on the precedent.every rom after it was full of shortcuts and needless fluff.they ran out of ideas I suppose and that's fine.they made the best they could with 2.3 and to a lesser degree greenbread.everything that is in 3.2 and onwards can be found and added by the user,so I see no point in using them.the graphics on the drop down can be modded by you if you know how,and boot screens are easily changeable.
    I have flashed them all so trust me 2.3 is the best.

    Change your VM heap to 32,and boost your SD card to 4096.
    There..you have the performance boost from 3.5

    No no I'm just telling him which one I believe is best.every phone responds different.3.5 is a good rom all around,and maybe I'm just tired of the green.the holo launcher works better with the ics blue fonts of 2.3 anyway xD

    Perhaps the next 3.6 release is going to be a 2.3 with minor performance updates only ;) I might give 2.3 a try with your suggested changes and see how I like it. running 3.5 right now and my only issue is an audio problem when playing movies. Everything else is great.

    Loaded up the 2.3 have not tried many apps yet but initial take: I prefer the rom of 3.5 for features but the phone is more functional with the 2.3. 3.5 had a tendency to stall and certain apps would hang and restart the phone. After deleting and replacing halo launcher and locker it seemed to have fixed the problem but going to stay with 2.3 for the fun of it for a while. Giving the phone to my 15 year old I am sure he will have it perfect soon.

    sure they tweaked some of the files like Droidhost mentioned,and im thankful for that.but they lost lots of the useful functionality of the earlier builds.they included the holo launcher to give the rom an ics flavor but did not change back to the ics blue color scheme?makes no sense.yes i like alienware too but i don't want it plastered all over my android phone.btw the arearom alien mascot thingy is a straight rip of the alienware alien.might want to change that,or at least not make it so obvious haha.
