    A Quick Review of Jelly Bean ROMs

    Reviews are for the Wifi only OG Xoom, because that's what I've got. 3G or 4G ROMs may have other differences.

    For comparison, stock Jelly Bean scores 4453 on Antutu Benchmark (it doesn't overclock) and has none of the additional features listed for the custom ROMs below.

    ROM: EOS-wingray-20120828-141
    Antutu Score: 7597 (1600 MHz) Previous 7685
    Notification Drawer Options: Airplane, WiFi, Rotation, Brightness, Notifications, Volume, Settings.
    Toggles: WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, Auto-Rotate, Silent, Airplane, Notifications, Torch.
    Status Bar: Bar Colour, Battery Icon, Battery Text, Battery Percent, Battery Text Colour, Clock, Clock Colour, AM/PM Style.
    Performance: Overclocking,
    Additional Features: Charging LED, Theme Chooser, Softkey settings, Ring Targets, Change WiFi regulatory domain.
    Custom Wallpapers: 1
    Boot animation: Team EOS Rotating Logo
    Power Menu (fixed): Power Off, Reboot (reboot, recovery, boot loader), Aeroplane Mode, Silent Mode.
    Changelog: http://jenkins.teameos.org/job/wingray/changes
    Verdict: A solid, stable, dependable ROM from EOS. EOS 3 was the first JB nightly for the Xoom.

    CM-10-20120828-EXPERIMENTAL-wingray-rogue
    Antutu Score: 7150 (1600 MHz) Previous 7340
    Notification Drawer Options: Airplane Mode, Orientation, Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, Brightness, Flashlight, Sound, Widget Button Order.

    Sound: Quiet hours, Safe headset volume, Expandable volume panel.
    Display: Screen On/Off Animation, Volume rocker wake, Volume rocker music controls.
    Performance: Overclocking, I/O Scheduler, Memory Management, Surface Improvement, 16 Bit Transparency.
    Additional Features: Profiles & Application Groups, Theme Chooser, Softkey settings, Launcher settings.
    Custom Wallpapers: 15
    Boot animation: New CM10 Rotating logo
    Power Menu: Power Off, Reboot (reboot, recovery, boot loader), Profile, Screenshot, Aeroplane Mode, Silent Mode.
    Changelog: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ghtp3x8zn9pyskt/Changelog.txt
    Verdict: Feature rich, funky and smooth.

    Codename-Android-3.4.1-XOOM
    Antutu Score: 7451 (1600 MHz) Previous 7412
    Notification Drawer Options: Airplane, Orientation, Bluetooth, GPS, Wifi, Flashlight, Sound, Widget Button Order.
    Status Bar: Clock (AM/PM, Day), Auto Hide, Battery Icon Style (Icon, Text, Icon & Text, Icon & Centred Text, Circle Mod, Hidden), Brightness Slider, Notification Count.
    Battery Bar Options: Location, Style, Charging Animation, Colour, Thickness.
    Lockscreen: Background, Target/Widget Alignment, Text Colour, Battery Status, Weather, Calendar, Slider Shortcuts, Vibrate On Unlock.
    Sound: Quiet hours, Safe headset volume, Expandable volume panel, Volume Rocker Music Controls.
    Display: Rotation Settings, Automatic Backlight Settings, Pulse Notification Light Settings, Volume Rocker Wake.
    Performance: Startup Tweaks, Overclocking, I/O Scheduler, Processor Voltage, Kernel Controls, Disable Boot Animation
    Additional Features: Profiles & Application Groups, Theme Chooser, Launcher Settings, Custom Carrier Label.
    Boot animation: Stock Jelly Bean.
    Custom Wallpapers: 1
    Power Menu: Reboot (reboot, recovery, boot loader), Profiles, Screenshot, Aeroplane Mode, Silent Mode.
    Full Feature List: http://codenameandroid.com/forum/ind...e-android-341/
    Verdict: A great start for this JB ROM on the Xoom. Runs superbly, with a subtly different feature set.

    Would people prefer more verbose reviews? I was aware writing this that there's nowhere to go if you want to compare features between different custom ROMs for ICS, so that's the angle I took for our snazzy new OS, but what I really want to do is to give people the buzz to go flash these things instead of stock, because I guarantee that if you do, you'll be glad you did.

    The short, succinct, version works really well for me - I've found it difficult to discover what the differences between roms and release are, so this is a big help!

    Thanks for all your efforts.
