    Have not tested it yet but, There is one !!! You need to have your phone unlocked and can install custom roms (it's not that hard to do but, there is a process).

    [ROM] (First) HTC Spark W 7.8 (US Trophy) Sianto Edition - xda-developers

    I have been on it for a while now. Pretty smooth. My only complaint is that it doesnt sync with the Windows Phone app on my Surface.

    Other than that its great. Makes me even more excited for getting the 8x!

    So DavidinCT, have you tried this ROM yet?

    I've decided to pass on WP8 for now but I'm looking to breathe some new life into my Trophy, and I'm thinking that a custom ROM may be the way to go. But when I browse through XDA it seems like every ROM out there has some sort of issue. I'm basically just looking for something very stable that I can install WP Root tools on. Preferably it doesn't break anything that's there in the stock WP7.5 ROM, like Internet Sharing. 7.8 would be nice, but I'm not opposed to using something based on 7.5, as long as it's stable.

    Sometimes it's a little overwhelming trying to read through all the threads for the different ROMs to see if anyone is having issues. Plus I'm new when it comes to this stuff and I don't want to clutter up XDA with noob questions. Does anyone have any tips on good ROMs? Is this one working well for people?

    As soon as I find something that looks stable I'll buy my Gold Card parts and get to flashing.

    I haven't yet, but only because there was some sort of shipping delay for my order. I'm still waiting on the USB gender changer. As soon as that comes in I'll get to it and update here.

    A perfect rom, works great, everything works fine, and no real bloat ware but, has the root tools you need to have a fully unlocked device...

    I'm running the rom the OP mentioned and it runs smoothly. There are some issues on it, like how some live tiles in small size look really screwed up and how the Settings>About page has a typo. I'm going to try the rom David referenced!
