Best custom ROM for android? I'm new to it so give some advice.
Search Android Forums for your device.Be careful in flashing or you will brick your phone.
Another one:XDA Developers
Which android device do you have?
That depends on your device. Best place to look for anything ROM-related is at XDA Developers Forums.
In addition to XDA another good place for rooting and ROM info is http://rootzwiki.com/index
It is best to do a lot of reading about rooting and unlocking bootloaders before doing anything. Also, flashing ROMs on some phones (Verizon Galaxy S3) can sometimes trash IMEI so be sure to have a backup.
Just as someone said, it all depends on YOUR device.
Galaxy S3. So what would you suggest?
Android Revolution HD fast, stable, stock look. However, "best" is highly subjective as it depends what you are looking for - other top ROMS would be Omega, FoxHound, WanamLite.
I was going to say RasbeanJelly combined with Franco Kernel...but you don't have a Nexus device. Yeah, check the GSIII forum on XDA.
Any other ROM's you recommend Pauly? You seem to be the expert around here
You should spend some time and read up on the xda-developers forum for your device. Each ROM will have it's own combination of things to appeal to different people. And once you get started it will probably take flashing a few different ones to find the one that works the best for you.
I used to own a GS II so i don't know much about the GS III.
You should start lurking the XDA forums for the GS III, you will learn lots of things there, only be careful with "elitists" . . . there are tons of those guys there.
Whichever ROM you choose be sure it is for your carrier's version. If your S3 is on Verizon, I highly recommend CleanROM http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1832070
I use AOKP on both Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy Tab 10.1.
CyanogenMod is also very good.
There are a ton. I've been using AOKP for a long while now.
If you want something new or different from the rest, try Paranoid Android.
