Ok I need help picking a new rom on a VZW GNEX. I’m on CM10 atm and I gotta say it’s a POS ROM. I lose 3-4% battery for on screen time at best, my 4G no longer works, and it’s unstable ass hell. Came from Axiom and then went to CM9 and since Jelly Bean is out I wanted to move on to CM10 and the worst mistake I have ever made. What rom is stable and battery efficient. I don’t care about bells and whistles. Just those two are important to me.

I haven't been keeping up with the forums lately so I'm out of touch with all the options nowadays, any input would be helpful.

Thanks in advance

Without a doubt, go with Sourcery. It is the best.

If you don't like cm10 you're going to hate every ROM on this forum.

Since your not wanting the bells & whistles. I would say Bugless Beast is the ROM for you. Peter Alfonso focuses on stability first & foremost, as well as battery life. He keeps it pretty close to ASOP, with only a few features added & performance improvements.

Edit: Peter has also been around since the OG Droid & has a pretty good reputation. Good guy too.

Sourcery is awesome. I also use Blackbean by team baked. I really dig the dark and inverted look :-) Good luck :-) Both for me very stable and good battery life.

Unfortunately CM10 is still beta and full of bugs, try to deal with 3-4% battery life per minute (6-8% browsing) and you wonder why you bought the phone. If it ever stabalizes I'll go back since I like the idea of CM but battery usually is an issue with that ROM.

Slim is well worth a look and highly underrated, IMHO. Lean and fast, but with a nice selection of customization options available:
