Ah, thats why it went wrong for me then. Thank you. Do you use CWM to make a complete backup copy that can be restored then? One for SLIM say and another for CM10.1. SO they can be restored when needed?

Yes while I'm testing, but I delete them when I'm happy with the one using. I have issues with cm10 that make it not practical for me, so will ditch the backup and I'll wait until a new release to try again.

Out of curiosity, what issues exactly did you have with the latest CM9? The reason I ask about CM9 instead of others is because that would be the one which could be compared to this this rom seeing as how they're both based on ICS.

On all the CM versions (9/10/10.1) i get this strange issue where if I'm on wifi at home and leave my house, mobile data won't connect and I have to reboot. If I manually turn off wifi in the house it switches ok, and if i'm on wifi at work and leave the office its fine. So obviously this is a major issue for me. To be honest, the only thing that I miss from JB over ICS is the enhanced notifications. This ROM is faster than any of the others for me, including CM9, and is very stable with excellent battery life too. I think a lot of people, me included, sort of want to go with CM just because its non-stock based, but in reality, it's not any faster or more reliable for me at least. There are no disadvantages to using a good stock-based rom as far as I can see. I use ROM Toolbox pro to bin any apps I don't want (gmail, movie studio, live wallpapers etc) and have to do that in whatever flavour rom. All I want is it to be fast, reliable, with decent battery life. At the moment, mu config is Slim with the trilogy script overclocked to 1.19, and it's the fastest and most battery friendly my g300 has ever been. Of course other people have different uses and requirements. I primarily use my device for exchange email, personal mail using Aqua Mail (much better than gmail app, no threaded conversations), Falcon for twitter, and Opera Mobile for web browsing. I have Apex as my launcher.

Have it up and running with a few apps etc. Will save it as a ROM backup once I get it to a stage I am happy with.
Can you confirm that Flash and TVCatchup, FilmOn TV etc all work on this?

Boy is it responsive! WWoooosshhh!

Interesting. Whats the multitasking like? Say for example when you have browser, messaging, play store, media player and gallery open at the same time in the background, whats the task switching like? That was something which I found didnt work well in ICS.

I usually test by switching between Opera, Falcon and Aqua Mail repeatedly, and it's pretty damned good. Virtually instant. Of course, ICS will close processes automatically after a while, so switching back to Opera can sometimes take a couple of seconds as it reloads, but this is faster than it has been on any other rom, JB included.
Just tried Opera, Falcon, Gallery and Play, and they're switching instantly, no lag at all.

Surely if you've got it up and running you can test those yourself?

Try flashing this in cwm I think it's even faster.

I'm running trilogy... Do you reckon it's worth uninstalling and trying this?

yeah, just realised. Having said that, your link is to V1, and I'm running V3... To be honest, I don't really see how I could make my g300 much faster now, given the physical limitations of the device. I honestly think that this is probably as good as its going to get. (Won't stop me trying all teh new roms and tweaks though!)

u linked to the V1 of trilogy script? why not V3?

anyway, i'll try supercharger together with this trilogy script

i also just installed apexlauncher and its really smooth on this rom

one question: is it better to keep apexlauncher running in memory or not?

Doesn't make much difference to me.

Should you reset Pimp my ROM before flashing Supreme?

PS the apps dont work but the Flash workaround in the browser does.

I just used it to enable init.d then reboot, then I uninstalled it, then rebooted recovery and installed the script.
